Jeff White Takes First ACT Win in Big JAB 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway

 

Winthrop, Maine’s Jeff White earned his first career American Canadian Tour win in dominant fashion at his hometrack of Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, June 4. White led all but three laps in the Big JAB 150 while battling with seven time and defending ACT Champion Brian Hoar.

 

Hoar held on for second followed by Brent Dragon, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. and another Oxford regular TJ Brackett rounding out the top five. Shawn Martin completed the three Oxford regulars in the top ten with a sixth. Wayne Helliwell was the biggest mover in the 150 lap event as he came all the way from 32nd to finished seventh. Eric Chase, Jeff Labrecque, Jr., and 2010 ACT Rookie of the Year Brad Babb completed the top ten.



 

A total of 41 ACT Late Models attempted to qualify for the 33 car field. The 150 lap event was completed in just 1 hour and four minutes with just three cautions. Twelve of the 33 car field finished on the lead lap.

 

With his first career ACT win, White also earns an invite to the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 24. He joins Hoar, Nick Sweet, Patrick Laperle, John Donahue and Daniel Descoste on the list of ACT winners that have received an invite so far in 2011.

 

The ACT Late Model Tour has next weekend off before making its annual trip to White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH on Saturday, June 18 for a 150 lap event.
