The Skinny: Dragon led with ten laps to go after getting the lead from Sweet on a previous restart. But another caution with nine to go put Dragon on the inside and Sweet to the outside. Sweet got the lead back on the restart and controlled the outside line. Dragon worked the inside and got Dragon on the last lap. It is Dragon's first Vermont Governor's Cup victory.
