ACT Champions Take Milk Bowl Front Row

2014 American Canadian Tour Late Model Champion Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, NH claimed his fourth career Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Pole Award as he set the fast time of the day with a 13.114 second lap at Barre’s Thunder Road on Saturday, October 11. Starting on the outside pole will be 2014 Serie ACT Champion Alex Labbe of St-Albert, QC when the first segment of the 52nd Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl rolls off tomorrow, Sunday, October 12.

The “Outlaw” Eddie MacDonald qualified to the first segment as the third fastest time in the time trials. 2014 Thunder Road “King of the Road” Derrick O’Donnell, Cody Blake and seven-time ACT Champion Jean-Paul Cyr each won one of the three Late Model Triple 50 qualifiers following time trial and qualify to positions 4-7 in the first segment.

A total of 47 ACT Late Models were on hand to take a shot at qualifying for one of 30 starting positions in the 52nd Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl. The first 26 positions in the first segment has been set by the top three time trial times, the top five qualifiers in the Triple 50s and the next eight fast times not already qualified. The final four spots will be up for grabs in tomorrow’s Last Chance B-Feature which will roll out at 12:15pm ahead of opening ceremonies at 12:30pm.

The Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen had time trial qualifying and completed their first segment of their Mini-Milk Bowl. Mike Martin edged out Brendan Moodie in a green-white-checkered finish. Doug Crowningshield, David Finck and Dylan Payea completed the top five.

The Allen Lumber Street Stocks also completed time trials and the first segment of their Mini-Milk Bowl. Jadon Perry took the checkers ahead of Tommy Smith, Brandon Gray, Nick Pilotte, and Bunker Hodgdon.

The 52nd Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl will be run tomorrow, Sunday, October 12 at the “Nation’s Site of Excitement.” The Late Model Last Chance B-Feature is scheduled for 12:15pm just ahead of the opening ceremonies at 12:30pm. The first of three 50-lap Late Model segments is set to roll at 1:30pm.
