Brian Hoar Earns Second Straight ACT Spring Green Win
 Seven-time and defending ACT Late Model Tour Champion Brian Hoar of Williston, VT claimed his second straight Spring Green and his second win of the 2011 season at Devil’s Bowl Speedway on Sunday, May 21. Hoar won a hard fought battle with leader Craig Bushey and later John Donahue to lead the final 36 laps and earn the win. Hoar’s win came in his first event in his new Ford powered ride out of the Rick Paya stables.
Shelburne, VT’s Jamie Fisher and Windham, ME’s Brad Babb swapped the lead early in the event as they sat on the front row after earning +6’s in ACT’s +/- handicap system. Bushey took over from his sixth place starting position on lap seven and would swap the lead with several drivers for the majority of the event including Ricky Rolfe and Fisher before giving up the lead for good to Hoar on lap seventy five and faded to eighth.
Donahue claimed second followed by Claremont, NH’s Todd Davis in third, Glen Luce from Turner, ME in fourth and rookie driver Ben Ashline from Pittson, ME rounding out the top five. Babb, Fisher, Bushey, Randy Potter and Quinny Welch completed the top ten.

The 111 lap event was completed with 14 cautions in one hour and forty-minutes. Thirty-two cars started the main event after forty cars attempted to qualify.
The ACT Late Model Tour has next weekend off before heading to Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine on Saturday, June 4th for a make-up event.
