Marc Patrick Roy, the Managing Director for Série ACT, who was present in Trois-Rivières for the meeting, declared that the participation at the meeting went way beyond his expectations. “The 37 people representing 22 teams in attendance, is beyond our initial expectations. Add to those present 6 other teams who had informed us of their absence, ahead of time, and I can confirm, beyond any doubt, that the competitors have a huge interest in our races and in the continued presence of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) sanction in Quebec.”
In addition to discussions around race day procedures and specific items in the rule book, Roy took the time to listen to the teams on various subjects in order to address, as best as possible, their challenges, with the ultimate objective of offering the best possible stock-car racing for the fans, while taking in consideration the economic realities associated with campaigning for an elite Championship.
It was also confirmed that season ending prizes and awards would continue for competitors enrolled in the Championship. Also, competitors having raced in all of the 6 Championship events will receive an invitation to participate in the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (Loudon, New Hampshire), which is a companion event to the NASCAR Monster Energy Cup, on September 23rd 2017. It is a unique occasion to race on the 1.058-mile race track, in front of tens of thousands spectators.
