Second Annual ACT Invitational

Joey Pole Claims Second Annual ACT Invitational

Hudson, New Hampshire’s Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, Jr. claimed the win in the Second Annual ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire. Pole worked his way through the field from the 27th starting position, taking advantage of a 58 lap green flag run, to lead the final eight laps of the 60 lap event.

Pole passed Jamie Fisher of Shelburne, Vermont while the two fought their way through heavy lap traffic. He then worked his way by leader Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, New Hampshire, who wrapped up the Lee USA Speedway track championship in Lee, New Hampshire on Friday night. Fisher would hold onto third while Brian Hoar, who locked up the ACT Late Model Tour Championship last Sunday in the Fall Foliage 300, came home fourth. The Inaugural ACT Invitational Champion Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, Massachusetts completed the top five.

Série ACT Castrol Edge regular Jean-François Déry of Quebec City took sixth, Albany Township, Maine’s Ricky Rolfe of Oxford Plains Speedway finished seventh, ACT Tour regular Joey Laquerre of East Montpelier, Vermont claimed eighth, Kawartha Speedway regular Dan McHattie of Peterborough, Ontario finished ninth and Série ACT Castrol Edge competitor Patrick Laperle of St-Denis, Quebec completed the top ten.

#-indicates rookie of the year contender

People's United Bank Milk Bowl



Officials from Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT announced today a change in the format of one of America’s best-known short track events, the People’s United Bank Milk Bowl.


For most if its 47-year history, the Milk Bowl has been comprised of qualifying and three 50-lap segments, with a unique scoring system that crowns the Champion after the completion of the final segment. In 2010, fans will see a change in the number of laps to the Milk Bowl format. As usual, the first 50-lap segment will be determined from a pole and outside-pole effort in time trials.  The second and third segments have traditionally seen a full inversion of the previous segment, with the last place driver from the previous segment starting on the pole and the winner last. Beginning with the Peoples United Bank 2010 Milk Bowl, the event will look the same until the second segment when the laps will increase from 50 to 75. Again 75 laps will be run for the third and final segment, after the second segment inversion, making the new format a 200-lap Milk Bowl versus the 150-lap event of the past.


“Over the past few years, the racing by the weekly Late Models at Thunder Road and on the ACT has been remarkably respectful. It has left little time for drivers stuck out back to have a fair opportunity to challenge for many wins. In the interest of fair competition, and in an attempt to provide the fans with the most exciting racing we can, we are going to expand the laps. We hope it will increase the excitement of the overall Milk Bowl,” said Tom Curley, Promoter of Thunder Road in Barre, VT.

ACT Invitational at NHMS



The final eight (8) teams have been notified that they will be invited to attend this coming weekend’s second annual ACT Invitational at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. The American Canadian Tour (ACT) completed the final qualifying event at the Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY Sunday, September 12, 2010 and several teams who were on the ‘short list’ locked in several of the final spots.


The final invitees include a newly crowned Champion at the Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS), Tim Brackett, and another OPS seven (7) time track champion, Travis Adams. Quinny Welch locked in his invite by winning last Saturday night’s weekly event at the White Mountain Motorsport Park in North Woodstock, NH. Welch took over a more comfortable lead from both Stacy Cahoon and his son Tyler. The three have battled all summer for the WMMP title, and all have attended the test and tune sessions at NHMS. Welch gets the nod for 2010 after losing the title in 2009 by a single digit number on the eve of the inaugural invitational. TJ Watson and Jamie Fisher received ‘at large’ invites for their year-long participation on the US Tour and Thunder Road weekly racing respectively. Rounding out the final invited teams is Scott Payea who has been a title contender for many years on the ACT US Tour and David Michaud from Quebec who literally raced his way into the Invitational with an at-large bid following the Fall Foliage 300 at Airborne Speedway.


One of the most popular and most successful drivers in the 20-year history of NHMS will complete the field of 43 invited teams. Running a part-time schedule Brad Leighton used the 300-lap Airborne event to lock up one of the final invitations.

Mohawk Casino Fall Foliage 300

Patrick Laperle Steals Fall Foliage Win

St-Denis, Quebec’s Patrick Laperle earned his second consecutive ACT Late Model Tour win and second consecutive Mohawk Casino Fall Foliage 300 at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY. Laperle led early in the event after starting on the outside pole but faded during the mid-portion of the event and went down a lap after spinning on lap 161. After pitting for tires Laperle raced his way back onto the lead lap on lap 211.

Current point leader Brian Hoar and Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, Jr., spent much of the race running side by side, swapping the lead, much like last weekend’s Bond Auto Labor Day Classic. Eric Williams joined the mix late in the event. Laperle made a three wide pass for the lead under Hoar and Williams after the final restart on lap 285.

Hoar’s second place finish was enough to clinch his seventh ACT Late Model Tour Championship. Pole took third, Brad Leighton fourth and Williams rounded out the top five. Randy Potter, Scott Payea, Brent Dragon, Craig Bushey and Joey Becker completed the top ten.

ACT Invitational at NHMS



The American Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced another round of invited teams who have been invited to participate in the second ACT Invitational to be held at the regions largest sporting complex, the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) on Saturday, September 18, 2010. The event will be held   as one of three preliminary events leading to the Sunday, September 19th first ‘Chase’ for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. The ACT teams will join the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and the Camping World Truck Series in a spectacular triple-header event on Saturday, September 18.


The first group of ACT teams, selected a week ago, represented the winners of 2010 championship events and track champion candidates with a few ‘at large’ selections. This announcement is primarily teams from an ‘at large’ pool who participated in a test and tune session last month at the Speedway. “This group represents sixteen (16) more teams in the selection process. This has been one of the most difficult jobs I have had in the racing business. We had 71 teams test and they all did a great job. They really are all deserving of being part of the 43 team starting grid. That is the problem; there are only 43 spots for 71 worthy teams,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour.

Bond Auto Labor Day Classic

Patrick Laperle Claims Bond Auto Labor Day Victory

St-Denis, Quebec’s Patrick Laperle held off a late charging Phil Scott to claim the ACT Late Model Tour win in the 32nd running of the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT on Sunday, September 5. Laperle led the final 14 laps of the 200 lap event after getting around Dave Pembroke.

Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. and current ACT Late Model Tour point leader Brian Hoar battled for the first 160 laps of the event. They swapped the lead eight times amongst themselves before Pembroke joined the mix with fresher tires on lap 160. Pembroke would hold the lead until lap 187 when Laperle took over also on fresher tires.

Phil Scott ran in the top three for the majority of the event until pitting for tires on a lap 167 caution. He proceed to slice through the field followed closely by Hoar and Randy Potter who also pitted on lap 167 with the same strategy.

Bond Auto Labor Day Classic

Sweet Defends Home Turf in Bond Labor Day Classic

Barre’s own Nick Sweet will defend his home turf at Thunder Road International Speedbowl against the ACT Late Model Tour stars in this Sunday’s (September 5) 32nd running of the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200. The recently crowned 2010 “King of the Road” will battle with the likes of current ACT Tour point leader Brian Hoar, Brent Dragon, John Donahue, who has won the last three Thunder Road Late Model features, and Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. among others.

As the hometown favorite, Sweet has had one of the most outstanding seasons at the “Nation’s Site of Excitement” in recent memory. He has already captured two big wins this season with the Thunder Road season opening ACT Tour Merchants Bank 150 in May and the Carquest Governor’s Cup 100 in June. In the 15 events held at Thunder Road this season Sweet has yet to finish outside the top ten. It is this consistency that helped him claim the 2010 Thunder Road Late Model Championship by just six points last Thursday (August 26).

ACT Invitational



The American Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced the first group of invitees to the second annual ACT Invitational to be held Saturday, September 18, 2010. The region’s greatest triple header of the year at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway will have the ACT Invitational joining the NASCAR Whelen Modified division and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in an event with added laps and additional teams for the 2010 version.


“The second ACT Invitational is one of the most anticipated events of the year for short track teams from throughout New England and the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. We had two great days of testing this month, with over 70 teams spending two days at the ‘Magic Mile’. Now the hard part of determining who will make up the 43-team roster begins. This first group is mostly made up of those that have gotten invited by winning races in 2010 or a few ‘at large’ bids for those that are having outstanding seasons and have been supporters of ACT racing,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour.
