Thanks to Butch Valley Jr. of New England Motor Racing Supply, I was given the opportunity to drive a sprint car this past summer. Butch Valley Sr. has known my family through auto racing for decades. The first race car he ever owned was purchased from my grandfather “Tinker”. It was the #77 car and they still use the same number successfully today.

Adam chasing hard

Adam on his way to a third place finish

Thanks to Onion River Sports for putting on a great race!

The course is 4.3 miles long and climbs 2,550 vertical feet on the famous Mt.Mansfield Toll Road to the summit parking lot. The racecourse starts on pavement for a third of a mile, then switches to gravel for 4 miles.

Racers face a steady incline throughout the course, with a 10-degree maximum pitch. Among the rewards is one of the most spectacular views in the East, overlooking three states and Canada.

All participants must ride mountain bikes with tires at least 2 inches wide.

For the third year in a row Marilyn sets a new overall womens record in the mountain bike hillclimb

The finish & a new record time of 41:55. Faster than last years time by 1:31!
