2016 Southern New England Tripleheader

Southern New England Tripleheader Highlights 25th Season for ACT Late Models

 

The 25th season of the ACT Late Model Tour will see a number of exciting new events that showcase the best of Late Model racing in the Northeastern United States. Among the highlights of the silver anniversary is the debut of the Southern New England Tripleheader, which will pit the standouts of the ACT Late Model Tour against the best weekly Late Model racers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

 

The three race series will be contested at Connecticut’s New London-Waterford Speedbowl and Thompson Speedway, along with Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway, which is located just outside of E. Providence, RI. In addition to awarding ACT Late Model Tour championship points at each event, a separate $7,500 point fund has been posted for local weekly competitors who run all three events.


Lee USA Opener Sets Tone for ACT Season

Lee USA Opener Sets Tone for ACT Season

 

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) opens its 25th season of ACT Late Model racing, along with the 33rd season of racing at Lee USA Speedway, with the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 on Sunday, April 10. The traditional ACT season opener often sets the tone for what to watch throughout the season, and the 2016 edition should be no exception.

 

ACT competition at the 1/3-mile speedway has historically been hard to predict. The previous 13 ACT Late Model Tour events at Lee have seen 12 different winners, with Brian Hoar’s back-to-back Governor’s Cup wins in 2011 and 2012 standing as the only repeat triumph. Former Lee USA Champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, NH became the latest ACT winner at the track when he captured the 2015 Governor’s Cup, the first of his four wins en route to the 2015 ACT Championship.

What are your favorite off-season hobbies?

I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like to bowl – I bowl in a league on Monday nights. My last off-season was extended by a couple years (laughs), so I took up golf, which I really enjoy. That won’t be an off-season hobby going forward though.

 

What do you do for work?

I manage the System Engineering team for The Orvis Company. We’re coming up on a year now that I’ve held the position.

 

What is your biggest life accomplishment?

As far as life accomplishments go, it’s my two children – son and daughter – by far. They’re an incredible amount of fun to spend time with.

What do you do for work?

I work on the K&N Pro Series cars for Grimm Racing. I do that year-round, along with snowplowing for the state of Massachusetts. Last year plowing was pretty busy, but not so much this year.

It had always been a dream of mine to race in the Sprint Cup Series, so it was pretty exciting to do that (in 2014 and 2015). That and just being able to race as long as I have – it’s been fun.
