“Outlaw” Eddie MacDonald Enters Season Opener at Lee USA Speedway
The 2009 season is shaping up to be the year of the “outlaw” on the ACT Tour. Leading the charge of the outlaws is Camping World East Series regular Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, MA, who will be at the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee (NH) USA Speedway.
MacDonald competed in four ACT Tour events in 2008. He finished in the top ten in all four of them and had an average finish of 4.5. One of his two second place finishes last year came in the season opener at Lee. MacDonald captured his only ACT Tour win at Oxford Plains (ME) Speedway in 2007.
MacDonald, along with other outlaws, will be “invading” more ACT Tour events this year with the hopes of qualifying for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. If MacDonald does qualify for the Invitational, he will attempt to continue his recent domination at NHMS. Last year he swept both NHMS races on the East Series schedule.
Also announcing his entry into the Governor’s Cup 150 is Bobby Dragon of Milton, VT. After running the full 2008 Tour, Dragon has decided to run a limited schedule in 2009. He will also be looking to qualify for the Invitational at NHMS where he too has experience in an East Series car.
Other outlaws to look for as the 2009 season gets under way are Brad Leighton, Ben Rowe, Quinny Welch and Joey Laquerre among others.
The ACT Tour is set to kick off its 2009 season on Sunday April 19 with the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee (NH) USA Speedway.
