Thunder Road SpeedBowl
ACT Late Model Profile. Meet: Phil Scott
There’s a lot more to Phil Scott than meets the eye. This father of two enjoys spending time outdoors, building cabinets and other woodworking projects. Most know Phil Scott as the “Flying Senator” or as a fierce competitor; however this multi-time Thunder Road title holder is very modest about his career, both on and off the race track. Phil has raced along some great drivers including Ken Schrader, Dave Dion, and Jean-Paul Cyr but states that he does not favor one competitor over another. “In 2005, I raced side-by-side at Oxford Plains Speedway, with a young driver from Maine. We raced each other hard, but we never hit. On that particular day, he was my favorite competitor during the feature.”

NAPA TIGER SPORTSMAN PROFILE. MEET: RACHEL BEEDE
Rachel Beede was born to race. From a young age Rachel along with mother Fran and sister Renee would go to Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre to watch father Chuck Beede (1992, ‘93, ’94 Late Model Sportsman Champion) and uncle Dan Beede (1987 NAPA Tiger Sportsman Champion) tame the high banks. The Beede family and friends would gather in the front row of the grandstands, to cheer for their favorite red and yellow Late Model, Chuck Beede. Once Rachel turned 16 years-old, she decided it was time she tested the racing waters and continued the family legacy at the wheel of an Allen Lumber Street Stock.
