2015 ACT Banquet of Champions

Helliwell Honored at 2015 ACT Banquet of Champions

 

American-Canadian Tour (ACT) teams, staff, and officials honored 2015 ACT Late Model Tour Champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, NH at the annual ACT Banquet of Champions at the Elks Club in Barre, VT on Saturday, January 9. Helliwell and car owner Bruce Bernhardt captured their third ACT title in the past four seasons, earning a $10,000 check from a total point fund more than $35,000.

 

Helliwell began competing full-time on the ACT Tour in 2011 after winning numerous races and track championships in New Hampshire. His team quickly became contenders on the Tour and won back-to-back championships in 2012 and 2013. After running a partial schedule in 2014, they returned in full form in 2015, winning four times and finishing in the top-10 in all thirteen events to come out on top of a season-long duel with 2014 ACT Champion Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. Helliwell’s average finish of 3.2 ranks as one of the best in ACT history.


2016 Bond Auto Parts ACT Invitational

ACT Returning to NHMS for 8th Bond Auto Parts Invitational

 

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) announced today that ACT will return to the 1.058-mile speedway in 2016 for the 8th Annual Bond Auto Parts ACT Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 24. The 50-lap event has been a staple of the ACT schedule since its inaugural running in 2009.

 

 “It’s definitely a race that I love going to,” 2014 Invitational winner Wayne Helliwell, Jr. said. “It brings a different type of racing that we don’t get to do at any other track. Running three-, four-, and sometimes five-wide, as much as it’s nerve-wracking, is also really enjoyable. Overall, it’s just a great experience – especially being mixed in with some of the Cup drivers and the Modified Tour guys. It’s a big event for the crew, the family, and the sponsors, and it’s something we really look forward to every year.”


2016 ACT Tour Schedule

ACT & PASS Announce Revised 2016 Doubleheader Schedule

                                   

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) announced today that the 2016 doubleheader schedule for the two series has been revised. Due to the continuing decline of the Canadian-U.S. exchange rate, the doubleheader event at Quebec’s Autodrome Montmagny originally scheduled for Saturday, July 23 has been cancelled.

 

“Historically, combination races have featured a U.S. funds purse for all competitors, and with the elevated exchange rate expected to go even higher, the costs for both fans and promoters would be unreasonable,” ACT President Tom Curley and PASS President Tom Mayberry said in a joint statement. “We certainly appreciate all the support and enthusiasm the teams and fans from Quebec have had for the combination events in the past, and we hope that we can get them back on the schedule in 2017.”

John O. Casey

Funeral Services Held for Former ACT Official John Casey

 

Funeral services for former ACT official and team member John “Johnny O” Casey, 74 were held today at John Vianney Church in South Burlington, VT. Casey died suddenly on Sunday, December 27, 2015 following a heart attack.

 

Casey got his start in racing as a driver, winning numerous races at the former Milton, VT drag strip. He later transitioned to a full-time role with ACT, where he spent many years as a race day official and marketer for Thunder Road and the former ACT Pro Stock Tour.

 

“Johnny O” remained involved in Thunder Road & ACT racing in his later years. He was a member of son Dan Casey’s Late Model team in the late 1990s and was also the architect of the Late Model team for which Robbie Crouch came out of retirement to drive for in 2008 & 2009.

Hometown: Newport, NH

2015: Finished 8th in ACT Tour points

 

What are your favorite off-season hobbies?

My off-season consists of mostly working; I work a lot of hours in the winter. But when I do have free time in the winter I love to snowmobile and ski. I have access to snowmobile trails very close to where I live and snowmobiling is something I have done my entire life.

 

What do you do for work?

I work for Irving Energy. I work in Terminal Operations; I unload propane rail cars at a bulk plant where we supply our plants in the U.S. In the summertime I’m also doing this, but we’re not as busy, so I travel around New England inspecting and working on all of our oil and propane facilities.

 

What is your biggest life accomplishment?

Being so young I don’t have kids yet, I’d have to say winning an ACT race (at Speedway 51 in 2014). Being where I’m from not many people have the opportunity to race on the Tour just because of the cost and the time commitment it takes. It’s something to be very proud about.
