Dragon Grabs Governorís Cup, Badore Claims Fairpoint Communications Night Feature

Dragon Grabs Governor’s Cup, Badore

Claims Fairpoint Communications Night Feature

Scott Dragon of Milton literally caught Nick Sweet of Barre at the finish line to capture the makeup of the rained-out Governor’s Cup, and Eric Badore of Milton took advantage of rookie Marcel Gravel’s late-race misfortune to earn the Thunder Road Late Model feature on Fairpoint Communications Night.

Sweet dominated for most of the Governor’s Cup, running away from the 29-car field from the pole position at the green flag to take the lead, which he held for the first 136 laps of the 150-lap event. Dragon got better as the race went on, moving into the top 3 on lap 115, then claiming second place on the 128th lap, then moving in front on a lap 141 restart.

Heavy thunderstorms forced the postponement of the Thunder Road Late Models Governor’s Cup on VP Racing Night. The 30-car field was lined up for introductions when rain swept through the area. The makeup date for the 150-lap feature has yet to be determined.

Shawn Fleury led from start to finish to pick up his first victory of the season in the Thunder Road Late Models on CVMC ExpressCARE Night.
 

Starting on the pole, Fleury jumped into an immediate lead over rookie Marcel Gravel of Wolcott, who started on the outside of the front row. Fleury widened his margin as Gravel and veteran Dave Whitcomb of Essex Jct. battled side-by-side for second place. Gravel, who led 38 laps of last week’s feature before falling victim to handling problems late in the race, held onto second, while Whitcomb finished third.
