Phil Scott is also a racer; He’s worried that returning to the short track after signing the state bill might cause a scene
Phil Scott isn’t only the Governor of Vermont, he’s also an avid short track racer in the same state. He runs semi-regularly at the Thunder Road International SpeedBowl in Quarry Hill, Barre, Vermont.
In 2017, Scott ran 6 races at the .25-mile asphalt oval. The track is billed as the “Nation’s Site of Excitement” and Scott went to victory lane in 1 of those 6 events last year.
It’s no secret that race fans support guns, Trump hats, a national anthem, prayer and American made brands. But, especially the gun part. It’s a right sided crowd. Scott is a republican himself but any gun-laws are sure to cause a storm with the very people that voted for him.
And it has, as Scott was met with both cheers and boo’s at the Capital building as he announced that he signed the bill. The bill was passed Senate Legislature in March with a 17 to 13 vote in favor.
