Scott Bonney, a veteran racer from Lee USA Speedway had his car, owned by Chad Sullivan, on display in the ACT booth at the annual kick-off to the New England race season. Bonney made history last year by winning the inaugural Wix/Bond Auto Reserve Champion trophy (proudly displayed on the car's roof). The program, likely the first of its kind in the country, awarded points to drivers not qualifying for the main event in any or all of the three $10,000 to win ACTion Super Series races. Bonney received his trophy just prior to the final segment at the season-ending New England Dodge Milk Bowl.
Bonney later reported that he was amazed at the reception he received from Thunder Road's fans while accepting his award, "I've only been here twice, they don't even know who I am," he remarked. The ACT official's response to the veteran racer, "The fans here respect racers and you've showed them that you're a racer. And they'll remember it next time you come back."
