2010 ACT Tour Schedule Revision



Officials at Waterford Speedbowl have announced an agreement with the American Canadian Tour (ACT) to close the 2010 season with a Fall Doubleheader stock car 300 lap spectacle. The Late Model stars of the ACT and the ‘Bowl’ will join the southern New England SK Modified division at Waterford on the weekend of October 09/10.


The event will feature 150 lap main events for each division. The ACT Championship will be decided at the fall event, and teams from throughout the northeastern United States and Canada are expected to make the trip to the historic coastal Speedbowl. The popular SK Modified division, which has become a staple of Southern New England racing at the Speedbowl, Stafford Motor Speedway, and Thompson Speedway will assure a large field of the powerful open-wheeled stock cars.




The American Canadian Tour (ACT) and New Hampshire Motor Speedway have reached an agreement for the Second Annual ACT Invitational to take place at the only superspeedway in the Northeast on Saturday, September 18, 2010.

“The overwhelming success of the inaugural ACT Invitational this past September made it an easy decision to have the short track stars of our region return again next September,” said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manager of New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

Thirty-six teams from all six New England states, Quebec, and Ontario took part in the inaugural ACT Invitational during the SYLVANIA 300 weekend this past September.  One of the largest Saturday crowds in the 19-year history of the speedway was treated to an action packed tripleheader of racing featuring the American Canadian Tour Late Models, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, and the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

Tiger Sportsman Tire



Thunder Road famed Tiger Division Receives New Goodyear Tire for 2010


The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and the American Canadian Tour (ACT) have recently announced a new tire design for the very popular Tiger Sportsman division at Thunder Road in Barre, VT.


During the original test session when ACT made the decision to switch over to the Goodyear brand for a seven-inch tire for the Ltd. Late Model-style car, several of the teams thought the Goodyear seven-inch treaded tire would better serve their needs if the engineers could add another half inch to the center of the tire. After a full year of racing on the seven-inch units, Goodyear has agreed to develop the seven and one-half inch version of the popular tire.

Scott Junod, Goodyear Sales Manager, Short Track Racing, said “ACT has been good for our presence in the Northeast and eastern Canada over the past five years with the growth of their Late Model racing, and we feel we can help them out with the development of a treaded Limited Late Model tire in order to meet their needs. I have seen ‘Tiger/Sportsman’ (Limited Late Model division at Thunder Road) races a number of times, and it really is an incredibly successful division. The Airborne Park Speedway also uses Goodyear’s seven-inch tire in two of their divisions with great success.”


Donald Theetge Honored at Série ACT Castrol Banquet

2009 Série ACT Castrol Stock Car Champion Donald Theetge of Boischatel, Quebec was honored at the annual Série ACT Castrol Banquet of Champions at the Best Western Hotel Universel in Drummondville, QC on Saturday, November 21.

With his two victories during the 2009 season, Theetge also became the all-time Série ACT Castrol wins leader with 14. Theetge’s championship earned him a point fund paycheck of $9,000.




The American Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced the majority of its 2010 US Tour schedule. The confirmed schedule shows a total of 13 events, which will take place at nine (9) different racing facilities. There are two additional events that are expected to be announced within the month, according to Darla Hartt, Vice President and Director of Administration.


“The ACT Tour has enjoyed tremendous support in the Northeast and throughout the provinces of Quebec and Ontario over the past five years. We had many opportunities to book additional events as we continue to enjoy growth with our Late Model business model, but we feel at this time it is in the best interest of our affiliate tracks and race teams to continue to concentrate in helping our weekly affiliate tracks and marketing areas that best serve our various sponsors and team needs. We continue to study the possibility of how we might be able to accommodate an expanded schedule in the future as the popularity of regional Late Model racing continues to develop,” said Tom Curley, President of ACT. “We have reserved two dates for events that we are very hopeful will be a part of the 2010 campaign. We plan to release those dates before the end of this month, but wanted our present and interested race teams to have the benefit of the completed schedule to date,” concluded Curley.




The American Canadian Tour (ACT) announced an aggressive schedule for the 2010 season on the ACT Castrol Series. Fans of the popular series will see an increase to 12 events, or three additional events from the past couple of seasons.


“We continue to have increased interest from the promoters in Quebec, Ontario, and even Maine for our ACT Castrol Series. For 2010 we have added Autodrome Ste-Felicien in the Lac St. Jean region, and third events are scheduled for both Autodrome Ste-Eustache and Riverside Speedway (formerly Autodrome St-Croix),” said Tom Curley the President of the ACT.


A July date will be added to the Ste-Eustache schedule and the new Riverside Speedway will host the “$40,000 CAN-AM Confrontation by the Seaway” in August.  The 200-lap event on the 5/8th mile speedway will join both the ACT from the US and the ACT Castrol competitors in dual point divisional races.





The American Canadian Tour announced today that various awards totaling over $35,000.00 will be awarded at the annual Banquet of Champions for competitors and friends of the Série ACT Castrol on November 21, 2009 at the Best Western Hotel Universel in Drummondville, QC.


Donald Theetge from Boischatel, QC will be crowned the 2009 Série ACT Castrol Champion. Theetge will receive $9,000 from the 2009 Castrol Point Fund. The top fifteen drivers will share in point fund and special awards totaling over $35,000 for the 2009 nine race season.


Five Star Bodies will award a full body to one of 23 Castrol Serie teams who competed in 70% of the 2009 events. The award is valued at over $2,000.

Bassett Racing Wheels will also award a set of coated wheels in a random draw among the fourteen full time teams who competed throughout the 2009 campaign.

American Canadian Tour



The American Canadian Tour (ACT) sanctioning body announced today that they have renewed an agreement with Goodyear Racing to utilize various Goodyear produced racing tires through 2014.


Tom Curley, President of the ACT, and managing partner of Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, Vermont said, “Goodyear is known the world over as the pre-eminent racing tire. The introduction of the Goodyear brand has been one of the most important decisions we have made over the past decade. The various Late Model tracks that have joined the ACT business model have made Goodyear their tire of choice, and race teams unanimously have endorsed this decision.”


ACT was instrumental in working with Goodyear engineers and marketing personnel in the research and development of the 8” slick currently used at ten (10) ACT affiliate tracks and on both the ACT US Touring Series and Série ACT Castrol in Canada.
