ACT Driver of the Day: Claude Leclerc

Claude Leclerc is a stock car racing legend. He was on the NASCAR North Tour during its first season back in 1979. He competed in each season on the North Tour and then joined ACT during its inaugural season in 1986 through the final Pro Stock season in 1995. After competing in select ACT Late Model events, he joined the Série ACT in its first season back in 2007. The 72 year old has been racing full-time on the series since. Between the North Tour, ACT Pro Stock Tour, ACT Late Model Tour U.S., the Série ACT QC, and ACT special events, Leclerc has now started in 495 feature events and will make his 500th start in 2014. The veteran holds the record for the most career starts on the combined North/ACT Pro Stock Tour with 397 and the record for Série ACT starts with 73. He will be the first driver ever to make his 500th feature start with the ACT organization. During the 2013 season, he proved he still has what it takes and claimed a runner-up finish in the first event of the season at Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, Quebec.
