50th Milk Bowl Ready for Sunday

50th Milk Bowl Ready for Sunday

After two attempts at the 50th Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl, racers and fans have received word of a good forecast for this Sunday, October 28th to run the $160,000 event.  With championship titles across the region completed, American Canadian Tour Late Models will take the gloves off one last time in 2012.

Two-time Thunder Road Champion Dave Pembroke will take another shot at starting from the pole, with 8-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar as his dancing partner in second.  2012 King of the Road Nick Sweet will take his shot at the 50th Milk Bowl from the third starting position, followed by Fort Kent, ME’s Austin Theriault and multi-time Thunder Road Champion Cris Michaud.  The odds favor the top five to have the best shot at long-time Promoter Tom Curley’s Challenge: $50,000 to anyone who can win all three segments.  When the first 50-lap segment ends, only one driver will have a shot at the feat, with two 75-lap features left to get the job done.

Rain Date Announced for 50th Milk Bowl

A third attempt at the $160,000 50th Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl will be run at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road on Sunday, October 28th with a post time of 1pm.  The three-segment race has qualified 30 cars, of the 51 who attempted, for what is considered the “Toughest Short Track Race in America.” 

Long-time Promoter Tom Curley was careful in choosing the day for the biggest race in Vermont’s history, as many of ACT’s leading drivers will participate in Lee USA Speedway’s OctoberFest event this coming weekend.  “We certainly do not want to conflict with one of the best facilities on our Tour, so we chose to run on Sunday, October 28,” said Curley.

Milk Bowl: Final Chance for ACT Competitors

Grudge Matches Settled at Historic Race

The biggest race of the year, The 50th People’s United Bank Milk Bowl, has become the prime time focus for ACT teams across the region.  51 ACT Championship cars will enter Barre, VT’s Thunder Road, in an attempt to earn the lion’s share of a purse worth over $160,000.

With championship chases behind them, the race will serve as a grudge match for a series of 2012 duels.  2-time Thunder Road Champion David Pembroke will attempt to dethrone rival 2012 King of the Road Nick Sweet, after claiming the pole position in the race through time trials.  Sweet, who dominated the Thunder Road Late Model division on his way to his second title, will start directly behind him in third.

Drivers Look Ahead to $50,000 Bonus

When 51 ACT Late Model stock cars arrive at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road on Sunday, October 14th for the 50th People’s United Bank Milk Bowl, an extra incentive will be on their minds: Curley’s $50,000 Challenge.  The challenge, put out by long-time Promoter Tom Curley, is a $50,000 bonus to any driver that can win all three segments of the year-end Milk Bowl.

The task is daunting, but three drivers have already accomplished the feat: Larry Demar in 1967, Dave Dion in 1975, and Robbie Crouch in 1986.  Brian Hoar was one position away in 1998 when he won the first two segments and finished second to his father in the third.  Several others have won two segments but failed to complete the crown.


Rent-A-Wreck Fall Foliage 200
Helliwell Claws to Victory, Claims ACT Crown
 
Dover, NH’s Wayne Helliwell, Jr. won the battle and the war, grinding to the victory in the Rent-A-Wreck Fall Foliage 200 at Airborne Speedway on Sunday, October 7 and unofficially earning his first American Canadian Tour Championship. He held off a late charging Austin Theriault, and 2012 Serie ACT Castrol Champion Patrick Laperle for the clutch victory. 
 
Second-place point man Brian Hoar and Helliwell started nose to tail to start the feature that ran the first 49 laps without a caution. Helliwell had worked his way to the front earning a five point bonus for leading a lap, while Hoar stalked him through the field. When a second caution came out on lap 62, Hoar showed his hand, ducking into pit road for fresh tires and falling to the back of the pack.
 
Helliwell continued to lead while Hoar methodically worked his way through the 36 car field. The fourth caution of the 200-lap event on lap 87saw race leader Helliwell, Theriault, and Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. on pit road for tires.

POSTPONED

The duel between Dover, NH’s Wayne Helliwell, Jr. and Williston, VT’s Brian Hoar will have to wait another day, but will resume on Sunday to settle the American Canadian Tour Championship.  Helliwell, who currently leads Hoar by eight points, is looking to claim his first ACT Championship, while Hoar tries to earn an unprecedented ninth.
