Jonathan Urlin Wins St-Eustache 300

Condon, Ontario’s Jonathan Urlin won the St-Eustache 300 at Autodrome St-Eustache on Sunday, September 20. Urlin was chased to the line by Sylvain Lacombe and Karl Allard. The race was slowed by 13 cautions and was completed in just over 2 hours and 25 minutes. There were five lead changes among four drivers.

The St-Eustache 300 was the final race of the 2009 Série ACT Castrol season. The difference between the top two in the point standings is one point based on the unofficial finish pending a scoring recheck. Therefore the champion will not be announced until the scoring recheck is completed.


Eddie MacDonald Takes Inaugural ACT Invitational Checkers

Eddie MacDonald of Rowley, MA won the Inaugural ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. MacDonald came from the 19th starting position and took the lead on lap 36 from young Brandon Watson from Stayner, ON.

Watson hung with MacDonald, not more than a car length away and eventually took the lead again on the lap 41 restart. MacDonald would eventually take the lead again for good.

“It was awesome to win the first ACT race here. I’m sure there will be more but winning the first one is special. There were still a lot of fans in the grandstands from after the truck race,” said MacDonald who scored his second win of the weekend after taking the East Series race at NHMS on Friday.


Thomas and Doiron Front Row of ACT Invitational

Groton, CT’s Bruce Thomas and Berwick, ME’s Joey Doiron will lead the 36 car ACT Invitational field to green at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Thomas will be on the pole and with Doiron to his outside.

Thomas earned his invitation as the current point leader at Waterford Speedbowl in Waterford, CT. Four races still remain at Waterford including an event tonight, which Thomas will try to get back for after the Invitational. “We’re going to try and stay out in front and set a fast pace so we can get back in time for the race tonight at Waterford,” said Thomas. “We aren’t the fastest car out there but we have the clean air to help us out.”Thomas has three career titles at Waterford Speedbowl and is on his way to a fourth thanks to nine wins this season.




This weekend’s American Canadian Tour (ACT) Invitational at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) will seem like a homecoming of sorts to several of the drivers who race with the ACT. Former NASCAR driver Brian Hoar from Williston, VT is a past NHMS Track Champion. Hoar is currently leading the 2009 ACT Championship point battle and looking for his 6th overall ACT title. Brad Leighton is the most prolific winner in NHMS history, with eight (8) wins to his credit. Part-time ACT racer Eddie MacDonald from Rowley, MA won both Camping World East events held at the Speedway in 2008. MacDonald is in a point race with Ryan Truex for the NASCAR Camping World East title and will be entering both races at New Hampshire this weekend.


When asked how he felt about heading to the Invitational, former King of the Road title holder and recent winner of the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road, Dave Pembroke, of Montpelier, VT said, “I am a little concerned that those guys will try and pay me back!”




The field is set for the inaugural American Canadian Tour (ACT) Invitational to be held this weekend at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) in Loudon, NH. The 36-car field for the historic first-ever Late Model stock car race is filled with the best short track drivers in the Northeastern US and provinces of Quebec and Ontario, Canada. The $65,000 event is slated to take green at 5:30 Saturday afternoon, following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series ‘Heluva Good! 200’.


ACT teams from throughout the Northeast have spent the past six months battling each other for a coveted spot in what will be the most unique racing opportunity most have had in their careers.




Noted racing columnist ‘Big’ Bigelow from the Caledonia Record, a daily paper from St. Johnsbury, VT, has won the first round of the ACT Invitational Media Contest. Ironically, Bigelow picked Canadian Patrick Laperle in the final bonus race this past weekend, the Fall Foliage 300, to beat out Toronto, Ontario’s Evan Towle from the The five bonus points were the margin of victory for the winner. “People pretty much know me as a ‘stats freak’. I guess this time my fun with facts and figures paid off for me. It has been fun to watch each week to see if I could climb the ladder to the top, and now, I guess my next job will be to pick the winner of the Invitational”, said Bigelow.


Bigelow competed against nearly three dozen members of the media who entered the ACT Invitational last April, just prior to the start of the season. Media members had to pick 36 teams from across all of New England and the Quebec and Ontario provinces of Canada. In addition, they were required to pick from 12 ‘bonus’ point events held on the ACT Tour, the Série ACT Castrol, and special events including the Oxford Plains’ TD Bank 250, the Governor’s Cup 150 at Thunder Road, and the Wiscasset Speedway Center of Speed 300. By picking Laperle in the Fall Foliage 300, he broke the tie to sit on top of a crowded score sheet among over two dozen Northeast racing media members.


Patrick Laperle Wins Fall Foliage 300

Montreal’s Patrick Laperle used smart tire strategy and a strong car to win the American Canadian Tour Akwesasne Mohawk Casino Fall Foliage 300 after leading the majority of the way. Laperle battled early with another Quebecer Donald Theetge as they both started on the front row. Theetge spun on lap 14 and opened the door for another Serie ACT Castrol regular Karl Allard. Allard and Laperle then went at it until about the halfway point when Allard bowed out with rearend issues. Laperle then battled with Brent Dragon for the lead for nearly 100 laps.

The majority of the drivers chose to pit between about laps 120 and 160, while Laperle lasted until lap 248 until he pitted for fresh tires and fuel. It didn’t take Laperle long to move back to the front of the field and get by Brent Dragon and Brian Hoar, who were leading the way. Laperle took the lead again on lap 258 and led the rest of the way.




The much anticipated ACT INVITATIONAL list is just one spot from completion with today’s announcement of the next seven drivers to be asked to join the field of 28 teams that have already accepted invitations to participate at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) ‘Magic Mile’ on Saturday, September 19, 2009.


“This has been a whole lot more difficult than I had anticipated”, said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour (ACT), the sanctioning body that will host the INVITATIONAL in conjunction with the first of the NASCAR Sprint Cup “Chase for the Cup” weekends that is being held at NHMS on September 18-20.”I have had a ‘short list’ sitting on my desk and traveling with me for over a week. I knew there would be four spots reserved for track champions (Oxford Plains Speedway in Maine and three New Hampshire tracks ---Lee USA, White Mountain Motorsport Park and Twin State Speedway). That left me with 8 solid choices on my list and only four spots available. The toughest part of this process was trying to find reasons not to invite any of the 8 teams I had put on the list. I started looking for reasons why to invite the final teams. The final 36 teams will make some history for Late Model racing. It is my hope that others will get an opportunity to race at NHMS in the future because of their efforts”, continued Curley.


Dave Pembroke Dominates the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic

Dave Pembroke of Montpelier led all 200 laps of the American Canadian Tour Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200 at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT. Pembroke started on the pole after earning a +8 handicap by moving from 11th to 3rd in his heat race. John Donahue and Patrick Laperle battled hard for the final 19 laps with Donahue getting the edge by a bumper at the line. Brian Hoar and Eric Williams were the final two cars on the lead lap and rounded out the top five.

The thirty car field made it through the first 181 laps caution free while Pembroke put all but the top five cars down a lap. Pembroke felt no competition as the closest car on the lead lap was nearly a half a track behind as they both worked their way through lap traffic. All thirty cars were still on the track when the checkered flag flew.
