The REMAX Alliance National 150, the second of three in the $200,000 ACTion Super Series, has attracted the interest of many of the top Late Model stock car drivers from across the Northeast and eastern Canada.
"As we've gotten closer to the race, the phone's been ringing more often," revealed Dean Gallison, the American-Canadian Tour's Director of Competition. "Since this is the second race of its kind at Lee, as well as the second in the 2005 ACTion Super Series, the questions have been more specific in nature, which leads me to believe that teams are really gearing up to take a shot at the $10,000," he finished.
According to Tina Boutin, ACT's entry administrator, the Waterbury-based sanctioning organization has received entries for the REMAX Alliance National 150 from seven states and two Canadian provinces. Last year's edition of the race drew 76 competitors from across the region, including surprise entry Kennington. The veteran Canadian racer had traveled all night from a race in western PA to attend the ground breaking event - the largest of its kind at the time for Late Model stock cars.
The ACTion Super Series kicked off on Sept 4 with the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic at Thunder Road Int'l Speedway, Barre, VT. Jean-Paul Cyr of Milton, VT won the 200 lap event and $11,200 in the process. The Series concludes back at Thunder Road on Sat and Sun, Oct 1-2 with the 43rd annual New England Dodge Dealers Milk Bowl.
