Sweet Wins Duel With O'Donnell for Record-Tying Vermont Governor's Cup Win
Hometown favorite Nick Sweet came out on top of a battle with Thunder Road Late Model point leader and fellow two-time “King of the Road” Derrick O'Donnell to with his fourth VP Fuels Vermont Governor's Cup 150 on Thursday, July 9.
Sweet took the lead from N. Haverhill, NH's O'Donnell on lap 125 following the race's fourth and final restart after stalking him for much of the event. O'Donnell made a bid to get back around Sweet on the outside, but came under attack from polesitter Cody Blake with 10 laps remaining, allowing Sweet to drive off to the win. Sweet moved into a tie with Robbie Crouch for the most Vermont Governor's Cup wins of all-time.
