ACT Test and Tune

ACT Test and Tune at NHMS Day One a Success

Twenty-seven American Canadian Tour teams attended day one of the Test and Tune session at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in preparation for the Inaugural ACT Invitational on Saturday, September 19. Teams from Ontario, Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec were all in attendance.

The morning practice session began at 9 a.m. after teams picked up their tires. For the majority of the drivers, the “Monster Mile” is the biggest track they’ve ever run on, and it took them several laps to get comfortable. By the afternoon test session it was apparent that all the drivers were comfortable and ready for the scheduled mock races of about twelve cars.

SERIE ACT CASTROL

Donald Theetge Wins Riverside 150

Donald Theetge of Boischatel, QC scored his second win of the season at the Riverside 150 at Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, Quebec. Theetge is now the all-time win leader for the Serie ACT Castrol with 14 career wins. Theetge was chased to the line by Sylvain Lacombe and Patrick Hamel, the only other two on the lead lap.

Jacques Poulin came home fourth followed by Karl Allard, Dany Ouellet, Patrick Cliche, Eric St-Gelais, Stephane Descoste, and David Michaud to complete the top ten respectively.

Unofficially Theetge now moves back into the point lead after Patrick Laperle had rearend issues. Laperle had to replace his rearend after it broke in his heat race. His crew got it repaired in time for the feature, but Laperle had to start in 25th. Laperle moved from his 25th starting position through the field and into the lead by lap 22. He then led until lap 98 and lapped the majority of the field in the process. On the 99th circuit his rearend let go again and he was done for the day.

ACT Tiger Sportsmen Tri-State Series

Shawn Duquette Takes Tiger Tri-State Series Title

Shawn Fleury Wins Tiger Sportsmen ACE Hardware 100 at Thunder Road

Shawn Duquette of Morrisonville, NY survived a ride on Thunder Road’s infamous “Widowmaker” during the third and final Tiger Sportsmen Tri-State Series 100 to unofficially clinch the title. Duquette won the first to Tri-State Series races at Airborne Speedway and Canaan Fair Speedway on his way to building up a 22 point lead in the championship point standings. Just under halfway through the 100 lap feature that lead disappeared as he wrecked just after the start-finish line.

At that point Jason Bonnett took over the point lead and only needed to finish in the top nine if Duquette didn’t return.

After about 20 laps of hardwork by his crew, Duquette was able to return to the race and pick up several more valuable spots. In the end it was just enough as Duquette tied with Bonnett with Duquette winning the tie breaker because of his previous two wins.

Laperle Scores Second Win at Montmagny 250

Patrick Laperle of St-Denis-sur-Richelieu, QC captured his second win of the 2009 Série ACT Castrol season at the Montmagny 250 in Montmagny, QC. Laperle took the green in the 14th starting position and quickly moved to the front of the field. After taking the lead on lap 27 Laperle clearly had the car to beat. Laperle held the lead until Karl Allard took over on lap 114 after pitting for fresh tires.

Allard then lead until after Laperle pitted for the new tires. At that point is was clear that Laperle had the dominant car. Laperle then took the lead again on lap 169 and lead the rest of the way. Allard would hang on for second and current point leader Donald Theetge finished third. Patrick Hamel and Justin Holtom were the only other two cars on the lead lap and finished fourth and fifth. Patrick Cliche, Jean-François Déry, Jonathan Desbiens, Claude Leclerc and Jacques Poulin completed the top ten.

Twenty-four cars were in attendance and they all took the initial green flag. Fourteen cars completed the race after 12 cautions.

Laperle won the opening race of the Série ACT Castrol 2009 season at St-Eustache, so he is already qualified for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Therefore opening up a spot for another  provisional.
