WISCASSET 300 TO BECOME ACT INVITATIONAL QUALIFIER
CENTER OF SPEED 150 LATE MODEL EVENT ADDED TO LOUDON RACE
The American Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model teams, along with a host of local teams throughout New England, will have another opportunity to qualify for the inaugural ACT INVITATIONAL to be held at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway as part of New England’s NASCAR September 18-20th race weekend in 2009.
Doug and Becky White, owners of the revitalized Wiscasset Speedway in Wiscasset, ME, have reached an agreement with the American Canadian Tour to include their Center of Speed 300 Late Model portion of the event as a Qualifier for the much-heralded ACT INVITATIONAL.
Designed as a cooperative effort by NHMS and the ACT organizations to help promote racing throughout the Northeast region, the ACT INVITATIONAL has captured the imagination of much of the Northeast racing community.
The ACT INVITATIONAL will give the most talented short track Late Model drivers in the Northeast and eastern Canada an opportunity to compete at the highest level, and should provide many short track fans in the region with a chance to see their hometown stars when they visit NHMS over the Fall NASCAR weekend.
Thirty-six teams will receive invitations through winning a variety of ‘Qualifiers’ throughout the season to compete in the highly anticipated event. The INVITATIONAL will be part of a spectacular triple-header on Saturday, September 19, 2009 along with the NASCAR Whelan Modified Series, and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
In a related story, ACT has also reached an agreement with Wiscasset Speedway to issue a guaranteed provisional starting spot in the Center of Speed Late Model portion of the 300 to the winner of the May 17th ACT TOUR New England Dodge Dealer’s 150 event being held at the Oxford Plains Speedway.
The Wiscasset Center of Speed 300 will be held on Sunday August 16, 2009.
