BARRE – Thunder Road officials have postponed the VP Racing Fuels Vermont Governor’s Cup 150, originally scheduled for Thursday, July 14, one day to Friday, July 15 due to forecasted evening thunderstorms.

It is the second straight postponement due to forecasted weather for Thunder Road.

Third place point driver Trampas Demers will look for his first Governor’s Cup win, as will leading Vermont gubernatorial candidate, current Lieutenant Governor and three-time Thunder Road champion Phil Scott. Jason Corliss will also look to claim his first win of the season in the Governor’s Cup.

Early breakout driver Eric Badore has been impressive this season and will look to claim his first Governor’s Cup win, as will Eric Chase and Kyle Pembroke.
