American-Canadian Tour (ACT) stock car drivers Brent Dragon and Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, Jr. enter Saturday’s Kancamaugus 100 at White Mountain Motorsports Park at the top of the list of potential race winners.  The pair finished 1-2 in their most recent appearance at the picturesque ¼-mile facility in June.

“We’re looking forward to getting back to White Mountain,” said Dragon, a veteran racer from Milton, VT.  “Jean-Paul Cyr has won a race here every year since 2003, and I don’t believe anyone has ever swept both ACT races at White Mountain in the same season.  It would be nice to stop Jean’s streak and set our own record at the same time with a win.”

Dragon won the White Mountain 150 in June after an exciting battle for the top spot with Polewarczyk, Randy Potter, and Ryan Vanasse.  He currently ranks fourth overall in ACT Late Model Tour point standings.



Joey Pole's #97 ACT Late Model

Hudson, NH driver Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, just 18 years old, turned in what was his best career finish at the time in second place at the White Mountain 150.  Just two races later, he raised the bar with his first victory at Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway.  The youngster races with extra inspiration this weekend.

“We’re trying harder to win this race than any other so far,” Polewarczyk said.  “Our crew member, Eric, lost his 17 year-old brother unexpectedly two weeks ago, and we want a win to dedicate to his family.  We usually run well at White Mountain, and we’re making sure the car is right to get that win for Eric.  He’s a big part of this team.”

White Mountain Motorsports Park has turned into a community-strengthening place for ACT Late Model Tour teams.  Dragon dedicated his June victory to fallen friend Mark Arsenault, while Cyr’s team received overwhelming support and help from competitors after a hard crash in qualifying.

“(White Mountain) has been a pretty magical place,” said Cyr, the six-time ACT Late Model Tour Champion and current point leader.  With help from no less than eight ACT race teams, Cyr rebounded from his crash to finish third on the heels of Dragon and Polewarczyk at the White Mountain 150.  He leads Scott Payea, Potter, Dragon, and “Rocket” Roger Brown in point standings.  Polewarczyk sits in seventh place behind five-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar.

Green flag qualifying action for the ACT Late Model Tour Kancamaugus 100 begins at 5:00pm on Saturday.  White Mountain Motorsports Park is located on Route 3 in North Woodstock, NH just five minutes from Interstate 93.  For more information, call (802) 244-6963 or visit www.acttour.com.
