“We know our teams and fans have been eagerly waiting for this day,” Thunder Road managing partner Cris Michaud said. “We want racing, and they want racing, so we’ve been working non-stop with the state to find a solution that would allow racing in a healthy and safe manner”

Michaud noted that the track is working on ways to accommodate Thunder Road season pass holders if the pay-per-view format becomes the only option.
