"We had one of the best classes to ever attend UVM in my opinion.
We all worked very hard and played the best we could every day.

Scott and Demers Team up for ACT Race at Oxford PDF Print E-mail

OXFORD, Maine -- A pair of Vermont stock car drivers will team up for the New England Dodge Dealers 150 at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, as Phil Scott of Montpelier sits in for South Burlington driver Trampas Demers in the Jiffy Mart #85VT Chevrolet. Demers’ car owner, Charlie Smith, ranks 21st in American-Canadian Tour Late Model Owner’s Championship standings, less than 100 points from the Top 10 with two events remaining. Demers is overseas on business, and Scott, the 2002 ACT champion, was called upon by Smith to take the seat at Oxford.

“We’re excited to have Phil Scott step in while Trampas is gone,” said Smith. “Obviously, Trampas would rather race himself, but given the circumstances, we figured we would ask a veteran driver that is capable of giving us some positive feedback on the race car. Phil is very good, he’s not a driver that tears up equipment, and we’re not just going to take a lap and pull him off the track. We’re headed to Oxford with every good piece we have, just as though Trampas were driving.”

Scott will be the third pilot of the #85VT car this season, as both Demers and his father, veteran racer Dennis Demers, have tallied points for the team. Scott, on the other hand, has already raced for two other car owners this season, himself and Pete Duto. Duto’s ride sits seventh in Owner’s Championship standings with a combined driving effort from Scott and Brad Leighton.
