Jean-François Déry Battles Way to Série ACT Win
The 2013 Série ACT season finally got underway with the Riverside 100 at St-Croix, Quebec’s Circuit Riverside Speedway on Sunday, June 9. Quebec City’s Jean-François Déry battled his way from his 20th starting position to steal the win from longtime event leader Patrick Cliche. Cliche led the majority of the 100 lap event, but Déry stole the win on a restart with just ten laps to go.
Déry held off Cliche on two restarts in the final three laps, while Série ACT veteran Claude Leclerc got by Cliche on the final restart to claim second. Two-time Série ACT Champion Donald Theetge worked his way from 18th to take 4th with Alex Labbe completing the top five.
Patrick Boyer, Jacques Poulin, Maxime Pelletier, 2012 Série ACT Rookie of the Year Etienne Cliche and Patrick Hamel rounded out the top ten.
The event was delayed by rain early in the day. After getting under way, the race saw 11 cautions for only minor spins.

Jean-François Déry becomes the first Série ACT qualifier for the Bond Auto ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 21. He joins ACT US competitor’s Jimmy Hebert, Brian Hoar, Wayne Helliwell, Jr., and Derrick O’Donnell as qualifiers.
The Série ACT will be back in action when they return to Autodrome St-Eustache on Saturday, June 22 to run their previously postponed 100-lap event.
