He will start behind Inaugural ACT Invitational Champion Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, MA in 25th and teenager Austin Theriault from Fort Kent, ME in 24th. Theriault finished second in the All-Star Challenge earlier this season.
Former Thunder Road Late Model Champion Nick Sweet of Barre, VT will start 27th. Série ACT Castrol Champions Karl Allard and Patrick Laperle will start 28th and 33rd respectively.
