ACT Can-Am 200

Joey Polewarczyk Jr. Claims First ACT Win of Season in Can-Am

Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, NH solidified his American Canadian Tour point lead with his first win of the season in the ACT Can-Am 200 at Circuit Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, QC on Saturday, August 23. Polewarczyk became the eighth different ACT winner in the first eight point counting events and pocketed over $5,000 for the victory. Serie ACT point leader Alex Labbe claimed second in the race, which was the seventh event on the Quebec-based series.

Polewarczyk started in the fourth position on the 33 car field and ran in the top five throughout the 200 lap event. He started outside Wayne Helliwell, Jr. on the 12th and final restart of the race with 25 laps remaining. Helliwell had led the majority of the event and still seemed to have the race in hand as Polewarczyk slipped back to second on the restart. Just a few laps later, however, Helliwell’s steering column broke ending his day and handing the lead to Polewarczyk.

Bond ACT Invitational at NHMS


Two former winners and a new young gun were the first to accept invitations to the 6th Annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational to be held at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) on Saturday, September 20, 2014. Invitations were first sent to those who qualified throughout the season by winning either an ACT US event or Série ACT event in Quebec.

In 2010, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr (Pole), Hudson, New Hampshire, charged from the 27th starting position on the grid and ran away with an impressive win on the “Magic Mile”. “We had a great finish to the 2010 season. This Invitational win was the icing on the cake. I think we won five races that year and finished second to Brian (8-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar from Williston, VT) in the ACT title battle for the American Canadian Tour Championship (ACT). Winning in front of the huge crowd, in my home state, was about as good as it gets,” said Pole.  Pole is currently leading the ACT Championship hunt with just two races remaining on the schedule.

ACT at Beech Ridge

Nick Sweet Snags ACT Victory at Beech Ridge

Barre’s Nick Sweet became the 7th different American Canadian Tour winner in the 7th event of the 2014 season when the tour visited Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME on Saturday, August 9. Sweet led for the majority of the event, but not without fierce contention and multiple lead changes with runner-up finisher Ben Ashline.

Ashline slipped out of the lead after starting on the pole with a plus five in ACT’s unique plus/minus handicap system. Outside pole sitter Stephane Descoste of Oka, Quebec led through the early stages of the event until Sweet took over on the 24th circuit. Sweet made the charge from his 8th place starting position and built a comfortable lead once he reached the point.

Sweet’s lead quickly evaporated when the third caution flag flew on lap 77. Ashline started to Sweet’s outside on the ensuing restart and the pair stayed door-to-door for the next 30 laps. They swapped the lead multiple times including seven official lead changes at the start/finish line during that time. Ashline finally edged by on the outside and Sweet fell in line until the final caution flag of the event on lap 110.
