Hallstrom Prepared to Tackle Most Prestigious Race in the Northeast

Inside Line Promotions – NORTHFIELD, Vt. (Sept. 20, 2018) – Evan Hallstrom is excited to tackle one more race weekend at his home track, which happens to host one of the most prestigious events in the Northeast.

The 56th annual Vermont Milk Bowl presented by Northfield Savings Bank will be held Sept. 28-30 at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, Vt.

“I’ve watched this race since I was 5-years-old,” Hallstrom said. “I understand the importance and how much it means to anyone who is in the starting field and to anyone who can win the thing. It’s simply not like any other race.”

The Vermont Milk Bowl is considered to be ‘The Toughest Short Track Race in North America’ as the best of the best drivers will battle through three 50-lap segments with the hope to collect the $10,000-plus winner’s check and add the monumental win to their resume.

Hallstrom, who has already accomplished a victory on the quarter-mile, high-banked asphalt track this season, looks to be one of the 26 cars in the starting field in one of the toughest stock car races in the region.

“This race is one that tests the experience of every single driver in the three 50-lap segments,” he said. “It will be as intense as anything I have ever experienced before, but I believe that we are ready. Our entire team is totally focused and prepared.”

Hallstrom made his Vermont Milk Bowl debut last year at the age of 15-years-old. Hallstrom was deemed the youngest driver to ever qualify for the event, according to the track’s records. Due to a lack of experience, Hallstrom elected to start at the tail of the field in each segment to gain seat time and earn the respect of the other drivers in the race.

This year Hallstrom will pull double duty during the Vermont Milk Bowl weekend and compete in both the Pro All Star Series Super Late Model and late model division. He will practice both the super late model and late model on Sept. 28, run heat races and the 150-lap PASS Super Late Model feature as well as late model qualifying heats on Sept. 29, and round out the weekend on Sept. 30 in the late model with the running of the 56th annual Vermont Milk Bowl.

“We’re going into the weekend and treating it as a normal race,” Hallstrom said. “We have had plenty of time to prepare for this weekend and I’ve worked on preparing myself mentally and physically for both features. We have a lot of laps around this place so hopefully that will pay off. However, my job is to qualify and bring it home, which are two major challenges at Thunder Road. I have faith in my team and myself for a good weekend.”
