PHOTOS: Thunder Road Practice, Tuesday, April 14

The gates swung open for the first time in 2009 at Thunder Road Int'l Speedbowl in Barre on Tuesday, April 14, and we were there to say hello to spring. By our unofficial count, there were 23 Late Models, 22 Tiger Sportsmen, and a combined 23 Street Stock/Junkyard Warrior cars. All photos by VMM.

Just because spring is starting to show up doesn't mean winter's totally gone yet... Yeah, that's snow.
