Thunder Road Milk Bowl 2023

Journey back to picturesque Barre, Vermont with us to revisit the 2023 Thunder Road Milk Bowl.

For the past three years, the family of Scott Roberds has put on this exciting event to honor his memory and his love for the sport of race car driving. The Thunder Road short track speedway, founded by Ken Squier in 1960, holds so much history and heart. We were so fortunate to participate in this meaningful event again.

Seven High Fives athletes and countless other members of the community gathered at the Nation’s Site of Excitement for the race of the season that ends with some very Barre-style traditions. The event began with High Fives athletes joining beloved and decorated driver at Thunder Road, Nick Sweet, on the track to push his car for the introduction lap. This moment was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity for these athletes.

In this 61st “Race to Kiss a Cow,” Nick Sweet finished strong at second place in an exhilarating race, making the High Fives Ohana so proud.
