Tech Memo
ACT TECH INFORMATION MEMO
 
Date:             Wednesday, December 14, 2012
 
ACT and Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl have released the 2012 rules for two of the four divisions that the track will have competing in 2012.
 
“We have tried to keep our rule changes in the Streets and Tigers to a minimum for the coming season.  Actually, we have made virtually no rules changes for the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman division, which fortunately has been the case for the past several seasons. The Allen Lumber Street Stock division has a few ‘clean up rules’, but for the most part will remain as it has been for many years with one exception. We are encouraging more foreign cars to enter the division,” said Dean Gallison, the Director of Competition for Thunder Road and the American Canadian Tour.
 
Tom Curley, Promoter of Thunder Road and President of the American Canadian Tour said, “We are taking a lot longer than usual to get our Late Model rules out for 2012. We have had a lot of discussions about how Late Model racing has evolved over the past decade. We have concluded that we need to try and get back to more of the core values and original business model that we started with this division back in the mid-nineties.
