Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. Steals Rent-A-Wreck Fall Foliage Win
Bobby Therrien Takes Bond/WIX Tiger Tour 100 Victory
Hoar, Laperle, O’Donnell Claim ACT Titles
 
Hudson, New Hampshire’s Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. claimed the American-Canadian Tour Rent-A-Wreck Fall Foliage 200 win at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, New York on Saturday, October 8. Polewarczyk claimed his first ACT point race win of the season in the combination ACT Tour and Série ACT Castrol event.
 
Polewarczyk led at several points during the event and claimed the lead for good after Groveton, New Hampshire’s Randy Potter got loose coming out of turn two and dropped two tires off the backstretch, while leading on lap 187. Potter made an amazing save and settled in for second. Turner, Maine’s Glen Luce used a late race caution to move into third followed by Wayne Helliwell, Jr. and Austin Theriault in the top five.
 
Karl Allard led early from the outside pole, but lost the lead to Potter following the first restart. The outside lane seemed to be the place to be on restarts throughout the event. Polewarczyk joined the mix after the lap 40 restart. Potter and Polewarczyk swapped the lead several before both pitted under caution on lap 131. The majority of the field chose to pit under that caution for tires and fuel.

2011 Série ACT Castrol Champion Patrick Laperle decided to stay out, as he had already took on two tires on an earlier caution, and took the lead. Laperle would hold off Polewarczyk and DJ Shaw as he led until the lap 176 mark before a flat tire forced him to pit under a caution. Polewarczyk and Potter took over the front row once again and Potter took the advantage on the restart and appeared to have the race in hand before the back stretch gave the lead back to Polewarczyk for good.
 
2011 ACT Tour Champion Brian Hoar took the sixth position followed by Shaw, Laperle, Ben Rowe and Donald Theetge rounded out the top ten. The event took one hour and fifty minutes with a total of twelve cautions. A total of 48 cars attempted to qualify for the 36 car field. Twenty-five cars took the checkered flag with 16 cars on the lead lap.
 
Hinesburg, Vermont’s Bobby Therrien won the final Bond/WIX Tiger Tour event of the season. Outside pole sitter Jason Bonnett broke out to an early lead before rookie driver Dylan Payea ran him down in lapped traffic and muscled his way by. Payea and Bonnett battled through the first restart on lap 73 until the two became the their own caution on lap 86. Derrick O’Donnell and Therrien claimed the front row.
 
O’Donnell led until the final restart of the event on lap 90 when Therrien fought by on the outside. Payea made a charge from the rear to claim second by a paint job at the line over O’Donnell. Troy Gray and Joey Roberts completed the top five. O’Donnell’s third place effort was enough to claim the 2011 Bond/WIX Tiger Tour title. He will now attempt to take the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen championship at Thunder Road tomorrow.
 
Nineteen cars were on hand for the final Tiger Tour event of the season. Sixteen cars finished with eight cars on the lead lap. The event had a total of four cautions and took forty-four minutes.
 
The Airborne Renegades were also on hand for the event. 2011 Renegade Champion Kevin Boutin, Jr. of Swanton, VT took the overall win after taking a first in the first 25 lap segment and fourth in the second 25 lap segment. Robert Gordon, Joe Warren, Josh Terry and Lance Robtoy completed the top five.
 
Many of the ACT Late Model teams and the Tiger Sportsmen competitors will head to Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT tomorrow (Sunday, October 9) for the 49th Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl. It will be the final event of the 2011 season after being rained out last weekend. Booth Bros./H.P. Hood time trials will roll out at 12 noon. Admission is $25 for adults and $5 for kids ages 6 to 12. The front gates will open at 10am.
