Strong Contingent of Quebec Stars Ready for International
A strong contingent of Série ACT stock car racing stars from Quebec have filed entries for the ACT International 300 at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY to be held on Sunday, July 20. The best of the Quebec series will attempt to claim the $25,000 winner’s payday.
The contingent is led by current Série ACT point leader Dany Trepanier who claimed his first win of the season last weekend and moved himself to the top of the standings. Joining Trepanier will be Alex Labbe of St-Albert, QC. Labbe has already claimed a win on the Quebec series this season, and during his last visit to Airborne Speedway in September of 2013, he beat the inaugural International winner, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., for the win in the Fall Foliage 200.
Along with Trepanier and Labbe will be two former Série ACT Champions. Defending champion Jean-François Déry from Quebec City and former three-time Champion Patrick Laperle from St-Denis, QC have both entered the International 300. Déry was the highest finishing Quebec driver in the 2013 International event with a fifth place effort. Laperle began his racing career at Airborne Speedway and has five ACT wins at the ½ mile speed-plant.
Another Série ACT front runner in Jonathan Bouvrette has filed his entry for the event which boasts nearly $100,000 in purse and prize money. He currently sits comfortably in the top ten in the Série ACT standings.
The International is a unique three segment race featuring a 50-lap segment and two 75-lap segments. The winner is decided by combining the three segments under a unique point system. In addition to the ACT International field of Late Models, the newly ACT-sanctioned Pro Cam Truck Series will also participate at the International in a 50-lap feature.
