Longtime NASCAR Motor Racing Network (MRN) and Sirius XM Radio host Dave Moody is returning to his roots at Thunder Road to announce the Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) portion of the special event on Thursday, July 20.

BARRE – A man who needs no introduction is returning to the Thunder Road public address system for the first time in nearly two decades. Officials have announced today that Vermont’s-own Dave Moody is making his grand return to The Road as the announcer for the Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) Event on Thursday, July 20, that will see such international stars as Tony Stewart, Marco Andretti, Tony Kanaan and Brad Keselowki, among others, take to the iconic Vermont oval.

Originally from Montpelier, Dave Moody cut his racing teeth at the Catamount Stadium in Milton and at Thunder Road as a media contributor before stepping into his role in announcing under the tutelage of the legendary broadcaster and Thunder Road founder, Ken Squier. To the memories of many Northeast race fans, Moody was the voice of the American-Canadian Tour and Thunder Road, among other stops along the way, for the better part of 30 years before joining the line-up of NASCAR’s Motor Racing Network (MRN) and Sirius XM Radio.

“I’m excited to be a part of what should be one of the most exciting nights in the history of ‘The Nation’s Site of Excitement,’” said Moody. “Thunder Road is home to me. It’s where it all began, and being back on the microphone for the Superstar Racing Experience there will be a dream come true.”

“We’re very excited to have Dave come back home for the SRX event on July 20th,” said Thunder Road managing partner Cris Michaud. “Moody has been a great supporter for Pat and I since we purchased the track and this will truly be the icing on top. His first-hand knowledge of the drivers combined with his knowledge of Thunder Road is sure to delight our New England fans and elevate this epic event even further.”

The Superstar Racing Experience (SRX) will debut with global NASCAR Cup Series Champions, IndyCar Champions, Daytona 500 and Indianapolis 500 champions converging on the iconic highbanks of Barre’s Thunder Road International Speedbowl on Thursday, July 20. Alongside the SRX stars will be the first-ever Late Model All-Star Race open to the best of the best in 2023, including weekly series Late Model winners at Thunder Road and New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park as well as touring series titans from the American-Canadian Tour and Series ACT Quebec.
