Brian Hoar Wins Second Segment and Overall ACT All-Star Challenge at New Hampshire Motor Speedway
 
Williston, Vermont’s Brian Hoar claimed the overall ACT All-Star Challenge title after winning the second segment at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 13. Hoar was running third on a lap 36 restart when segment one winner and leader at the time Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Massachusetts had ignition troubles and had to retire from the event.
 
Hoar led the remainder of the 50 lap event, while holding off a hard charging Austin Theriault of Fort Kent, Maine during the final laps. Hoar’s run from the 35th starting position to the win combined with his second place finish in the first segment was enough to earn him the overall win with a near perfect three-point total. Theriault’s second was enough to earn him second in the overall finish as the only other car with a single digit score.
 
“We had a hot rod all week, from Test and Tune through today. I had a lot of anxiety starting 35th. It’s a lot of fun to run three and four wide here and I have to hand it to the entire field; they were respectful and gave a lane,” said Hoar. “I don’t think anybody’s ever seen that kind of racing in this place. It was a fun day.”


St-Denis, Quebec’s Patrick Laperle completed the podium with a 12th and 4th in the first and second segments respectively. Brad Leighton of Center Harbor, New Hampshire and Joey Laquerre of East Montpelier, Vermont completed the top five overall.
 
The combined segments totaled 75 laps and was completed in a total of one hour and twenty minutes with six cautions.
 
Hoar has already earned an invite to the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 24. Completing the list of invites so far are Nick Sweet, Patrick Laperle, John Donahue, Daniel Descoste, Jeff White, Patrick Hamel, Alex Labbe, Donald Theetge, Kyle Busch and Jeff Taylor.
 
The ACT Late Model Tour will be back in action next Saturday, August 20 for a 150 lap make up event at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine. The Série ACT Castrol has next weekend off, but will head to Riverside Speedway in Ste-Croix, Quebec for the combination Can-Am 200.
