Ver­mont gov­er­nor wins race

Ver­mont’s stock-car-rac­ing gov­er­nor is back in vic­tory lane. Repub­li­can Gov. Phil Scott won the 50-lap fea­ture Thurs­day at Thun­der Road in Barre, Vt., tak­ing home a to­tal of $1,200. Scott, a part-time race­car driver, is the all-time win­ningest driver in the top di­vi­sion at Thun­der Road. The vic­tory was his 30th and his first since be­com­ing gov­er­nor in Jan­uary. He can now add to his list of ac­com­plish­ments that he is the first sit­ting gov­er­nor to win a Ver­mont stock car race. Scott eas­ily won two pre­lim­i­nary heats Thurs­day be­fore start­ing the fea­ture in the pole po­si­tion at the head of the pack. He led for the en­tire race. Scott pre­vi­ously served three two-year terms as Ver­mont’s part-time lieu­tenant gov­er­nor.
