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.

Seven Past Milk Bowl Champions Qualify for 47th

Seven former Milk Bowl Champions have secured a spot in the starting grid for the 47th Annual Chittenden Milk Bowl rescheduled for this Sunday (October 4) at Thunder Road International Speedbowl. Brent Dragon, Dave Pembroke, Eric Williams, Cris Michaud and Jean-Paul Cyr each have their name etched in the Milk Bowl Champions granite monument once, while Phil Scott and Brian Hoar have two wins apiece. This leaves 23 drivers aiming for their first career Milk Bowl win.

Two favorites will start segment one from the front row. Barre’s Nick Sweet starts on the pole after earning the Booth Bros./H.P. Hood Pole award last Saturday. His lap was the fourth fastest to earn the pole since Late Models took over the Chittenden Milk Bowl in 1996. Sweet will attempt to become the tenth driver in the history of the Milk Bowl to win from the pole. It is only his second career start in the prestigious event. His ninth place finish in last year’s event helped him earn the 2008 ACT Tour Rookie of the Year honors.

The 47th Annual Chittenden Milk Bowl at Barre’s Thunder Road originally scheduled for Sunday, September 27th, has been postponed due to rain. The event has been rescheduled for next Sunday, October 4th.
