Clone Wars Adventures: Volume 10

Thunder Road is a story in Clone Wars Adventures: Volume 10. It stars Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker escaping from bounty hunters in Death Canyon.

Plot

In Death Canyon, Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi impatiently watches as Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker patches up an old VXL speeder. There is a squad of bounty hunters chasing after them and only one way out of the canyon, a path that the hunters have closed off. Skywalker zooms the speeder out of the garage and Kenobi hops on, skeptical of his former Padawan's modifications but soon hanging on for his life as the VXL blasts off. Unfortunately, Skywalker informs him that they could not slow down even if they wanted to, and this proves troublesome when a harpoon is stuck into the speeder. Rather than stop it, the harpoon gun itself is pulled out of the ground, forcing Kenobi to jump onto the top of the speeder and dispatch the bounty hunter trailing behind it. The two Jedi next face two rows of bounty hunters on each side of them, some with rocket launchers and some with blasters. As Kenobi deflects the bolts, Skywalker takes both lightsabers and hooks them up to the power core, giving the speeder a moment of sonic speed and allowing it to jet to safety, to the Republic headquarters where Grand Master Yoda awaits. The old Master remarks on how good the speeder looks, and Kenobi groans as Skywalker quips "once a classic, always a classic".

From The Third Turn, a Wikia wiki

Thunder Road International SpeedBowl, more commonly known as Thunder Road, is a 1/4 mile high banked, paved short track speedway located in Barre, Vermont. The track is co-owned by Ken Squier and Tom Curley.[1] Currently, Thunder Road hosts four weekly divisions: Late Models, Tiger Sportsman, Street Stocks, and Junkyard Warriors. The track is known for the fact that it hosts it's weekly races on Thursday night, rather than Saturday, as nearly all other short tracks do. On June 28th, 2007, NASCAR driver Kenny Wallace raced at Thunder Road. [2] Ken Schrader, another NASCAR driver, had raced once at Thunder Road each of the two years prior to Wallace's visit.

Thunder Road has hosted the "Milk Bowl" Late Model race for 48 years. It is the season finale for racing at the track, held each fall against a backdrop of foliage. The Milk Bowl is a unique race of three 50-lap segments, with cumulative scoring and full field inversions between segments. The driver with the lowest combined total of finishes in the three segments is declared the winner.[3] The winner of the event is expected to kiss a cow in Victory Circle.
