St-Felicien’s Karl Allard picked up his fifth Série ACT Castrol Edge event of the 2010 season and his second in a row at Autodrome Chaudiere in Vallee-Jonction, QC on Saturday, August 7. Allard fought off 2009 champion Donald Theetge over the final 65 laps to earn the win.

David Michaud took the lead from outside pole-sitter Daniel Descoste on lap 15 and would hold the lead through lap 54 before Patrick Laperle got by on a restart. Laperle lost the lead on lap 83 when he went around off the nose of second place runner Jean-François Déry.

Allard then got around Theetge on the restart and the two would battle the remainder of the race with Allard taking the lead for good on lap 119. Theetge would hold on for second, while Laperle worked his way back through the field for third. Michaud picked up fourth with Déry rebounding for fifth. Daniel Descoste, Patrick Hamel, Gaetan Lauzier, Stephane Descoste, and Patrick Cliche rounded out the top ten. The 150 lap event was completed in 56 minutes and 52 seconds with eight cautions.

Jean-Francois Dery led the majority of the event and appeared to have the car to beat before Jonathan Urlin used the bump and run to get by him with nine laps to go. Urlin was black flagged for the move, giving Lacombe the lead as Dery fell back in the outside lane.

Lacombe was chased to the line by Patrick Laperle and rookie Martin Latulippe. Martin Lacombe came home fourth while Dery recovered to finish fifth. Jonathan Bouvrette, Philippe Jeannotte, Patrick Hamel, Claude Leclerc, and David Michaud completed the top ten.

ACT Invitational

ACT ANNOUNCES FINAL LIST FOR NHMS INVITATIONAL

 

The American Canadian Tour (ACT) announced today another list of potential race teams that may be invited to compete in the second annual ACT Invitational at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway over the opening weekend for the NASCAR Chase weekend on September 17-19, 2010.

 

Two full days of practice at NHMS will be divided between over 70 invited attendees. With just eight (8) teams guaranteed spots in the expanded field of 43 starters, the test sessions will go a long way in deciding who will get the ‘at large’ invitations to what has become one of the most anticipated events of the year for short track fans and teams in the Northeast and eastern Canada.

 

“There is a limit to how many teams we can invite in a season, and this year has been particularly difficult as we try to expand into the weekly tracks more than we did a year ago,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour. “There were several teams on the ‘bubble’ last year after the practice sessions, and in fact, two of the top three finishers from last year’s events were so impressive that we invited them as a result of the practice sessions.” Ontario’s 16 year-old star Brandon Watson and Barre, Vermont’s Nick Sweet used the practice sessions as a way to get invited to the Invitational and certainly proved they were assets to the inaugural event.

Serie ACT Castrol Edge
Allard Wins Fourth Serie ACT Castrol Edge Event at Riverside

St-Felicien’s Karl Allard won his fourth Serie ACT Castrol Edge event of the season at Circuit Riverside Speedway in Ste-Croix, QC on Monday, July 26. Allard started in the 10th position and took the lead from Jimmy Cormier after a lap 28 restart. He then held off Patrick Laperle through five more restarts and led the remaining 72 laps.

Laperle had to settle for second while Cormier got back by Donald Theetge late in the race to earn third. Theetge came home fourth followed by Jean-Francois Dery rounding out the top five. Patrick Hamel, Sylvain Lacombe, Max Descoste, Jacques Poulin and Stephane Descoste completed the top ten.

The 100 lap event took just one hour and four minutes and was completed with seven cautions.


Allard has already qualified for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway set for Saturday, September 18th. He joins Nick Sweet, Eddie MacDonald, Patrick Laperle, Dave Pembroke, Miles Chipman, Brian Hoar, and this past Saturday’s (July 24) ACT at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway winner Joey Polewarczyk, Jr.

BEECH RIDGE 150
Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. Earns Ford First ACT Tour Win

Hudson, NH’s Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, Jr. earned Ford its first ACT Late Model Tour win at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME on Saturday, July 24. Pole moved from his fourth starting position to take the lead on lap 14. He held the lead and lapped the majority of the field until lap 83.

On the lap 83 restart Pole lost the lead to Farmington, ME’s Jeff Taylor, who also competes with a Ford crate engine. Taylor held onto the lead for 13 laps before Pole took back over for good. Taylor remained in second until he blew a tire with just under 20 laps remaining.

Pole held off rookie, and fellow Ford crate motor competitor, Austin Theriault who picked up his best career ACT finish with a second. Tim Brackett took third, Corey Morgan fourth and John Donahue with another Ford earned fifth.

Current point leader Brian Hoar took sixth, Eric Williams seventh, Brent Dragon eighth, Dave Paya ninth and Brad Babb rounded out the top ten.

ACT Invitational at NHMS

ACT INVITATIONAL PRACTICE SET FOR NHMS

 

The American Canadian Tour (ACT) and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) have announced that a two-day test and tune session has been scheduled for Tuesday, August 17 and Wednesday, August 18, 2010 in preparation for the second ACT Invitational to be held as part of the classic triple header at NHMS on Saturday, September 18, 2010.

 

The practice sessions, which give invited teams nearly eight hours of practice each day at the famous ‘Magic Mile’, were a racing highlight for many teams last season in preparation for the inaugural running of the ACT Invitational in 2009. Because of the time constraints with the NASCAR Sprint Cup, Whelen Modified Tour, and NASCAR Truck Series participating at NHMS over the weekend of September 18th, this becomes the only time for the ACT teams to get quality seat time at the region’s only super speedway.

 

“We expect a totally different practice session this season having now experienced one Invitational”, said Tom Curley, President of ACT. “There was a lot of anxiety going into NHMS last season, but this year teams know what to prepare for and what to expect. Certainly for the many new teams we are inviting for the practice sessions, this will be a race experience many have dreamed about, but the goal is to get teams comfortable for the September event, which was a highlight of the ACT race season and for short track fans throughout the region in 2009.”
