ACT
FOLSOM FILES FIRST ACTion SUPER SERIES ENTRY
Entries for the three American-Canadian Tour (ACT) $10,000 to win ACTion Super Series events have started to roll in to the organization's Waterbury, VT offices. The first driver to enter all three events was Grant Folsom, 25, of Waitsfield, VT. Folsom ran about half of the 15-race schedule at Barre, Vermont's Thunder Road International Speedbowl last season.


"I'm really excited about this year's ACTion Super Series races, especially the one at Sanair (Super Speedway, St-Pie, Qc). I've heard so much about the track and I'm looking forward to racing there. I know it will be hard to qualify, especially since the track's almost a mile long, much bigger than anything I've ever raced on," Folsom said. He continued, "I'm also looking forward to the two races at Thunder Road. Even though I didn't qualify for the two Super Series races there I really learned a lot racing against a lot of really talented drivers from across the Northeast," he finished.
Also filing early entries for all three ACTion Super Series races is 31 year-old David Chagnon from Colchester, VT, a weekly competitor at Thunder Road and Wolcott, Vermont's Marcel Gravel, a rookie contender. By filing their entries prior to March 1, Folsom, Chagnon and Gravel are eligible for a drawing for a set of Goodyear Tires at each of the three $10,000 to win events.
The ACTion Super Series kicks off Sat/Sun, July 8-9 at the 7/8ths mile Sanair Super Speedway in St-Pie, Quebec, outside of Montreal. "La Mega Classique," which will be contested in three 50-lap segments, will bring together drivers from the U.S. and Canada as competitors from Quebec's SÚrie National Castrol and Ontario converge on the slightly banked tri-oval.
Thunder Road, a high banked quarter-mile, will host the balance of the ACTion Super Series events. The 28th Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200 is slated for Sat/Sun, Sept 2-3 and the 43rd New England Dodge Milk Bowl will wrap up the 2006 season on Sat/Sun, Sept 30/Oct 1. Five-time ACT Tour Champion, Jean-Paul Cyr of Milton, VT won the 2005 Bond Auto race while Quebec's Patrick Laperle was victorious at last year's Milk Bowl.
