Tom Therrien Wins Bond/WIX Tiger Tour at White Mountain

Hinesburg’s Tom Therrien earned the first win on the 2010 Bond/WIX Tiger Tour at White Mountain Motorsports Park on Saturday, June 5. Therrien started in 17th and didn’t take the lead until lap 83, when he got by the 2009 Thunder Road Champion Jimmy Hebert. Therrien would hold off Hebert in a three lap sprint setup by a caution on lap 97. Therrien took the checkers just infront of Hebert in second and his brother Bobby Therrien in third. Hebert had led the majority of the race after the early leader Tony Rossi spun on lap 33.

Thunder Road Late Model star Dave Pembroke finished fourth followed by Jason Bonnett rounding out the top five. ACT Late Model Tour regular Chip Genier took sixth, Joey Roberts seventh, Mike Ziter eighth, Derrick O’Donnell ninth and Eric Badore completed the top ten.

The 100 lap event was completed in just over an hour with eight cautions. Twenty-six of the thirty starters were on the track for the checkers with twenty-three of them on the lead lap.




White Mountain Motorsport Park (WMMP) will open the Bond/Wix Tiger Tour this Saturday, June 05, 2010. The popular Bond Tiger Sportsman cars from throughout the region will begin their championship run in the first of four events for the 2010 race season.


“White Mountain was a natural for us to begin the 2010 campaign,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour, (ACT), which sanctions the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman Division. “WMMP took a major step to bring the ACT rules for the Tiger Sportsman division to the track this season, and we want to do whatever we can to try and help get this division in a growth trend at WMMP. We have encouraged the Thunder Road Tiger teams to visit WMMP whenever they can in 2010.”


All tour events will be 100 laps. The other scheduled events that will be held during the season include: Thunder Road on Thursday, July 01, Canaan Fair Speedway on Saturdya, August 21, and the finale will be held at the new Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH on Saturday, October 9th.

Mekkelsen RV will present the 48th annual Memorial Day Classic at Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT this Sunday, May 30. For the third year the Modified Racing Series (MRS), presented by Bob Valenti AutoMall, will join the American Canadian Tour (ACT) Thunder Road Late Models in the twin bill. Each division will race 100 lap features.


The Memorial Day tradition has been going on at the high-banked oval for nearly half a century. Beginning in 1961, the list of winners is a great tribute to some of the men who helped build stock car racing in the northeast. That tradition continues this Memorial weekend.


A favorite to repeat his win from last season’s Memorial Day Classic is David Pembroke from Middlesex, Vermont. “I guess we have some momentum after our win at Devil’s Bowl last weekend, but this Memorial Day race is really a tough one to win. There are so many capable teams that run in championship form at Thunder Road, and they all want to be on that granite monument behind the tower,” said two-time winner Pembroke.


Patrick Laperle Wins Série ACT Castrol Season Opener

Patrick Laperle of St-Denis, QC won the season opening Série ACT Castrol event at Autodrome St-Eustache. Laperle worked his way to the front after starting in the 19th position and took the lead from Jonathan Urlin on lap 39. The two swapped the lead once more before Laperle took over for good on lap 43.

Pete Vanderwyst of St. Thomas, ON took second with St-Felicien, QC’s Karl Allard third. 2009 Série Castrol Champion Donald Theetge finished 4th and Urlin rounded out the top five. Sylvain Lacombe, Jean-François Déry, Martin Lacombe, Jonathan Desbiens, and Gaitan Lauzier completed the top ten.

The 100 lap event was completed in just over an hour and a half and was slowed by eight cautions. Seven cars finished on the lead lap with 21 of the 30 starters on the track for the checkers.




Officials from the American Canadian Tour (ACT) and Airborne Speedway announced today that the makeup date for the highly- anticipated Tour date will be Saturday, July 10, 2010. The Furniture World of Vermont Spring Green was scheduled to be run on May 8, but became the third rain-out on the early ACT schedule.


“We appreciate Mike (Perrotte, Promoter of Airborne) working to make this happen. Every team on the American Canadian Tour was looking forward to coming back to Airborne after the great success last year with the re-make of the facility”, said former Airborne owner and President of ACT Tom Curley.


The ½ mile was completely re-designed in 2009 and provided about the perfect track for ACT Late Model racing. During last fall’s running of the Fall Foliage 300, 19 different lead changes among five different drivers provided a great event for fans and competitors.

Oxford Plains 150

Eddie MacDonald Holds On For ACT Win at Oxford Plains

Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, MA took the checkered flag in the American-Canadian Tour 150 at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, ME. MacDonald started in the fifth starting position and would take the lead on a lap 54 restart.

The 2009 Oxford 250 and ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway winner would lead the remainder of the race but not without pressure from hometown favorite Tommy Ricker of Poland, ME. Ricker got to the rear bumper of MacDonald several times in the final laps but didn’t have enough to get by while the two worked their way through lap traffic. The 2009 ACT Late Model Tour Champion Brian Hoar took third after leading the first 25 laps. MacDonald’s only other ACT Late Model Tour win also came at Oxford Plains Speedway in August of 2007.


ACT at Lee USA Speedway Rescheduled

The American Canadian Tour (ACT) recently announced that the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 originally scheduled for April 18 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH has been rescheduled for Friday, June 11 with a post time of 7:15pm.

It will be the 8th ACT Late Model Tour event ever held at the 1/3-mile speedway and the 3rd event of the 2010 ACT season.

ACT teams will have a challenge in racing with the Lee regulars, who have gained experience in the longer distance ACT races over the years. The Lee contingent will be led by defending champ and current point leader Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, NH. Helliwell has already scored two wins in the first two events at Lee in 2010 and is currently leading the Ford Blue Oval Cup Challenge.


ACT Spring Green 100 at Airborne Postponed

The 36th Annual Furniture World of Vermont Spring Green 100 scheduled for this Saturday, May 8 at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY has been postponed due to forecasted heavy rains. The event will be rescheduled for another date which will be announced as soon as possible.

The Spring Green 100 at Airborne was scheduled to be the second event on the 14 race 2010 ACT Late Model Tour schedule.
