ACT Returns to Riverside Speedway This Weekend

The American Canadian Tour will return to Groveton, NH’s Riverside Speedway this Sunday, June 2nd for the Bond Auto ACT 150.  It will be the first ACT race at the quarter-mile track since 2004.

With point leader Brian Hoar’s plans to run a limited schedule in 2013, the door has swung wide open this weekend at Riverside for ACT’s top talents.  Sophomore driver Jimmy Hebert has come out of the gate on fire, sitting second in the overall points coming into his first Late Model appearance at Riverside Speedway.  Reigning Series Champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr., who won the first Clash of the Titans 150 held at the speedway in 2009, will attempt to erase the 15-point deficit between himself and the upstart Hebert. 

Tiverton, RI’s Ray Parent will look to continue his early-season momentum at Riverside Speedway in his first appearance at the track in an ACT event. Veteran Brent Dragon will be trying to extend his impressive resume at Riverside with ACT.  He currently leads all ACT drivers in most top tens (7) and most top fives (5) in ACT events at the Groveton, NH track. 

Other favorites for the 150-lap event will include Hudson, NH’s Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., young guns Ben Lynch, Rowland Robinson, Jr., and Rookie leader Bobby Therrien, as well as top ten point man Chip Grenier.  Hometown favorites and former Riverside Champions Quinny Welch and Randy Potter, along with defending Late Model Champion Luke Shannon, will look to defend their home territory on Sunday in their season opening event.

The American Canadian Tour heads to Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH this Sunday, June 2nd for the Bond Auto ACT 150.  Post time is 1:30pm.
