VP Racing Fuels Vermont Governor’s Cup Feature Postponed By Rain


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.

The Thunder Road CVMC Express Care race event has been rescheduled for this Friday night, July 8, 2016. “With an 80% prediction of thunder showers for both afternoon and evening on Thursday, we felt it was in everyone’s best interest to change until Friday night,” said General Manager Darla Hartt.

Gates will open at 5:15 and post time is scheduled for 7pm. Admission is just $12 for Adult, $3 for Kids (6-12), and children under 6 are free.
