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.

There are no specific criteria for deciding who might receive the award of a free American Racer tire (value $125.00), but a special effort by a team, exceptional race, just plain old hard luck, or any other accepted reason is used to decide the award recipients.
