ACT International Adds Black Cat Hell Drivers to Weekend
The American Canadian Tour (ACT) announced that the second running of the $25,000.00 to win INTERNATIONAL 300 race on Sunday, July 20 at the Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY will feature the Black Cat Hell Driver show on the eve (July 19) of the region’s largest stock car event.
“Bringing back the old-fashioned Lucky Teter, Joie Chitwood, Jack Kochman-type thrill show is a great way for the fans that are coming for the full weekend to start their fun off on Saturday night. Last year we had so much racing over two days that we felt something totally different for this year on Saturday night might be better for the whole family,” said Tom Curley, promoter of the biggest event of the ACT race season.The Black Cat Hell Drivers are billed as the only traveling stunt show in the United States. Featuring pyrotechnics, clowns, motorcycles, crashes and two wheel drives among their stunts, many of the Hell Drivers performed with some of the nation’s best known shows mentioned above.
The INTERNATIONAL for the American Canadian Tour Late Model teams has posted awards of nearly one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000.00), with the winner’s share a guaranteed twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000.00). The defending 2013 inaugural INTERNATIONAL winner, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. (Pole), from Hudson, New Hampshire said, “This is looking like a really fun weekend for our team. I like the one day format, and having some time to enjoy Saturday night sounds like a great time. My guess is that there will be as much action on the track Sunday during the INTERNATIONAL as the Hell Drivers will give us on Saturday night, but I guess time will tell. I am really looking forward to it because Airborne certainly has been good to me in recent years.”
The best ACT Late Model drivers from the eastern United States and Quebec will be at Airborne Speedway. They will be joined by the Sportsman Modified division, who will run a special 50-lap event. Also joining the card on Sunday will be the Pro Cam Truck division from Quebec, sanctioned by ACT. The Thunder Road Tiger Division will also run a double segment race monza-style event during the Sunday INTERNATIONAL .
