2015 ACT Season

Babb, Packard Making Strong Impressions Early in 2015 ACT Season

The 2015 American-Canadian Tour (ACT) season has reached the quarter-pole of its 15-race schedule. While former champions Wayne Helliwell Jr. and Joey Polewarczyk Jr. find themselves at the top of the standings, a growing crop of new and young racers are making their presence known.

Windham, ME’s Brad Babb has been one of the drivers to beat so far. Babb returned to the ACT Tour full-time in 2015 driving a car owned by Joey Laquerre. He scored his first ACT podium finish at the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup, then earned a storybook win in the Merchants Bank 150 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road. It was the first race at Thunder Road since Laquerre’s grandson, up-and-coming local racer Joey M. Laquerre, died in an ATV accident last October.


American Racer Three Stars Award

ACT Awards Merchants Bank 150 Three Stars

The American Racer Three Star program is designed to recognize three non-podium finishers, in no particular order of performance, who had outstanding races at ACT U.S. Tour events. There are no specific criteria for deciding who might receive the award of a free American Racer Tire (value $125.00), but a special effort by a team, exceptional race, just plain old hard luck, or any other accepted reason to give the award is used to decide the award recipients.

The three stars are chosen by ACT officials and will receive certificates for use of a free American Racer tire at a race of their choosing during the 2015 season.

Babb took the lead from Scott Dragon with 18 laps to go and went on to win the Merchants Bank 150 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road. The win came following a pre-race tribute to Laquerre’s late grandson Joey M. Laquerre, leading to an emotional celebration in Victory Lane.

Helliwell, ACT Tour Take on Local Stars in Merchants Bank 150

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will help Barre, VT’s Thunder Road open its 56th season of competition on Sunday, May 3 with the 17th Annual Merchants Bank 150. Wayne Helliwell Jr. will be going for his second straight win in the event, but a host of ACT Tour and local Thunder Road Late Model drivers are looking to take the trophy home.

Dover, NH’s Helliwell picked up his first Thunder Road win in last year’s Merchants Bank 150, taking the lead using a crossover move on Jimmy Hebert with 16 laps remaining. The two-time ACT Tour Champion became the 11th different winner in 16 editions of the event. Helliwell and his Bruce Bernhardt–owned team come into this year’s event with the ACT Tour point lead after their victory in last Sunday’s New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH.

2015 NH Governor's Cup 150

Helliwell Shows The Way at Lee USA Governor’s Cup

Wayne Helliwell Jr. came out on top of a battle with fellow home track driver Eddie MacDonald to win the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 on Sunday at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH.

Helliwell took the lead from MacDonald for the final time on a lap 117 restart following a caution for defending ACT Champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr.’s spin entering turn 3. The Dover, NH driver then held off McDonald and Maine youngster Brad Babb on two ensuing restarts to win his first Tour race at the 3/8-mile oval and eighth overall.

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Models will be at the Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH this coming Sunday, April 26 for the 25th annual New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150. Eddie “The Outlaw” MacDonald will look to defend his title in the event, but a host of veterans and newcomers alike figure to be up for the challenge.

MacDonald has been red hot in the ACT Late Models in recent months. The Rowley, MA driver swept all three 100-lap events at the New Smyrna Speedway in Florida as part of the annual February racing. Combined with his victories in the Vermont Milk Bowl at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road last October and the Fall Brawl 150 at Groveton, NH’s Speedway 51 in November, MacDonald has five straight wins in ACT-type Late Model events.
