2015: Finished 8th in ACT Tour points


What are your favorite off-season hobbies?

My off-season consists of mostly working; I work a lot of hours in the winter. But when I do have free time in the winter I love to snowmobile and ski. I have access to snowmobile trails very close to where I live and snowmobiling is something I have done my entire life.


What do you do for work?

I work for Irving Energy. I work in Terminal Operations; I unload propane rail cars at a bulk plant where we supply our plants in the U.S. In the summertime I’m also doing this, but we’re not as busy, so I travel around New England inspecting and working on all of our oil and propane facilities.


What is your biggest life accomplishment?

Being so young I don’t have kids yet, I’d have to say winning an ACT race (at Speedway 51 in 2014). Being where I’m from not many people have the opportunity to race on the Tour just because of the cost and the time commitment it takes. It’s something to be very proud about.

2015 ACT Season in Review

2015 ACT Season in Review – Part IV

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) returned to New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 26 for the 7th Annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational. Drivers from 7 U.S. states and the province of Quebec joined the 43-car, 50-lap sprint at the “Magic Mile”. Although 14 drivers were making their first Invitational start, they quickly got up to speed; three- and four-wide racing was once again the norm with just three single-car spins slowing the action. Thompson Speedway standout Jeff Rocco grabbed the early lead off the outside pole, but Williamstown, VT’s Jimmy Hebert quickly charged from the 10th starting position to take the lead on lap 6. 2010 Invitational winner Joey Polewarczyk Jr. moved into second soon after and the two drove away from the field. “Joey Pole” eventually caught Hebert in lapped traffic and was perched on his bumper when the caution flew for Rocco’s spin on lap 31.

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) kicked off the second half of the 2015 season at the same place where they began the first half: Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway. Defending ACT Champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr. had led every lap in the Tour’s first visit of the year, and seemed determined to do so again the second time around. “Joey Pole” again started on the pole and went unchallenged through the first 2/3 of the 150-lap event, while point leader Wayne Helliwell Jr. fought to come up through the field after a poor qualifying effort had him starting 17th.

After a week off following the opening three-race swing, the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) resumed the 2015 season at Plattsburgh, NY’s Airborne Park Speedway on Sunday, May 17 (following a one-day postponement) with the 41st Annual Spring Green 115. The event marked the return of the Spring Green to Airborne for the first time since 2010. It would also be the first of four combination events in 2015 between the ACT U.S. Tour and Série ACT – by far the most since the creation of Série ACT in 2007. The Spring Green (which was also the season opener for Série ACT) drew stars from both sides of the border – and two former champions would end up deciding the outcome.


Devil’s Bowl Speedway standout Josh Masterson of Charlotte, VT started on the pole and led early, but soon fell into the clutches of defending ACT Champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr., who took the lead on lap 24. A trio of cautions between laps 42 and 44 allowed multi-time ACT Champion Patrick Laperle to enter the picture, and he grabbed the top spot following the race’s final restart on lap 44.

2016 ACT Tour

Payea Returning to ACT with RPM Motorsports


RPM Motorsports has announced that former American-Canadian Tour (ACT) standout Scott Payea will join the team for the 2016 ACT Tour season. Milton, VT’s Payea returns after two years off from racing to compete for the Tour championship behind the wheel of the RPM Racing Engines Ford with car owner and crew chief Rick Paya.


Payea previously competed on the ACT Tour for six seasons beginning in 2005. He was the ACT Rookie of the Year in 2005 and finished runner-up in points for three straight years from 2007-2009, losing the 2008 championship to Patrick Laperle by a single point. Payea also won five Tour events, including two victories in the Merchants Bank 150 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road as well as wins at White Mountain Motorsports Park, Waterford Speedbowl, and Airborne Park Speedway.

2015 ACT Season in Review

2015 ACT Season in Review – Part I


The 2015 American-Canadian Tour (ACT) season was a mix of old standbys and new beginnings, as the Tour continued to build on the present while also looking toward the future. The 30th year of competition saw ACT forge new alliances, visit new tracks, make long-awaited returns to old favorites, and bring the U.S. and Quebec series together at levels unseen since the days of the ACT Pro Stock Tour. Through it all, the on-track action was fast and furious from Quebec to Connecticut, headlined by a season-long championship battle between two of the modern greats of ACT Late Model racing.


Two major offseason developments helped lay the groundwork for the 2015 season. In November 2014, ACT President Tom Curley and Pro All Star Series (PASS) President Tom Mayberry announced an unprecedented cooperation agreement which included four “doubleheader” events. They were the PASS season opener at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway in April, which would be ACT’s first visit to the track since 2012; the Memorial Day Classic at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road in May for ACT-type Late Models; the International 500 at Plattsburgh, NY’s Airborne Park Speedway in July; and the Chaudiere Twin 200s at Quebec’s Autodrome Chaudiere in September.
