Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. Earns Ford First ACT Tour Win

Hudson, NH’s Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, Jr. earned Ford its first ACT Late Model Tour win at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME on Saturday, July 24. Pole moved from his fourth starting position to take the lead on lap 14. He held the lead and lapped the majority of the field until lap 83.

On the lap 83 restart Pole lost the lead to Farmington, ME’s Jeff Taylor, who also competes with a Ford crate engine. Taylor held onto the lead for 13 laps before Pole took back over for good. Taylor remained in second until he blew a tire with just under 20 laps remaining.

Pole held off rookie, and fellow Ford crate motor competitor, Austin Theriault who picked up his best career ACT finish with a second. Tim Brackett took third, Corey Morgan fourth and John Donahue with another Ford earned fifth.

Current point leader Brian Hoar took sixth, Eric Williams seventh, Brent Dragon eighth, Dave Paya ninth and Brad Babb rounded out the top ten.

The top ten were the only cars to complete all 150 laps. The race was completed in one hour and fourteen minutes with six cautions.

Joey Pole becomes the eighth driver to earn an invitation to the second annual ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 18. He joins Nick Sweet, Eddie MacDonald, Brian Hoar, Dave Pembroke, Miles Chipman, Karl Allard and Patrick Laperle on the invite list. He is the first Ford driver to earn an invite.

The ACT Late Model Tour will be back in action this Friday, July 30 at Twin State Speedway in Claremont, NH for a 100 lap event.
