Hoar Takes Over ACT Point Lead

Hoar Takes Over ACT Point Lead

Hebert Penalized for Post Race Technical Infraction 

After Saturday’s ACT 100 at Airborne Speedway, eight-time American Canadian Tour Stock Car Champion Brian Hoar has moved into the championship points lead with four events complete. 

Hoar took the point lead after second-place finisher Jimmy Hebert suffered a post race technical infraction on Saturday night.  Repairs made to Hebert’s damaged race car after a heat-race altercation with another competitor caused the rear end to shift.  This resulted in a left side weight infraction in technical inspection following the feature race.  The team was issued a $500 fine and was docked 12 championship points.  Hebert remains second in the overall standings, just 11 points out of the lead.

Reigning ACT Champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. continued his title defense with another podium finish at Airborne, leaving him third in points and 15 points behind Hebert.  Ray Parent held on to fourth just behind Helliwell, and Brent Dragon rounds out the top five contenders.

Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Ben Lynch, Rowland Robinson, Jr., Bobby Therrien, and Chip Grenier remain inside the top ten in the ACT championship standings.

The American Canadian Tour will head to Groveton, NH’s Riverside Speedway on Sunday, June 2nd for a 150-lap event.  It will be the fifth point counting event of the 14-race schedule.
