Dragon came from the fourth starting position to challenge Scott before the wreck. John Donahue challenged Dragon for the final 17 laps but settled for second, followed by point leader Scott Payea in third. Young Joey Doiron came home fourth followed by Brian Hoar to round out the top five. Quebec’s Daniel Descoste finished sixth followed by Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Ben Rowe, Aaron Fellows and Dallas Trombley completed the top ten.


LABOR DAY WEEKEND

ACT DOUBLE HEADER LABOR DAY WEEKEND

 

The upcoming Labor Day weekend will bring a major test for the American Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model race teams. The first double-header weekend of the season takes place with a rain make up event at the Twin State Speedway in Claremont, NH on Friday night, September 4. Post time is 7 pm. Following the event at Twin State; the TOUR will head to Thunder Road for the 31st running of the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200 on Sunday, September 6, 2009.

 

“This is just like the old days, when we used to race lots of double header weekends”, said Tom Curley, President of the ACT. “I actually liked doing a couple of races a weekend back when we ran the old NASCAR North and ACT Pro-Stock Tours. It seemed to build great camaraderie among the teams who helped put the cars together with each other, and certainly those weekends created some interesting short term rivalries”, continued Curley.

ACT Test and Tune at NHMS Day Two

The American Canadian Tour completed their final test session at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Wednesday, August 26. The two sessions this week were in preparation for the Inaugural ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 19.

Twenty-one cars were in attendance on the second day. With cooler temperature and overcast skies the track was quicker than during Tuesday’s session and the speeds showed it. The cars were racy and proved that side by side racing was possible all the way around the track. The mock races were once again the highlight of the day with lots of action with a dozen cars running door handle to door handle around the entire track.

Eddie MacDonald has owned NHMS recently and used his previous experience on the “Magic Mile” to his advantage. MacDonald showed that he will be a true contender and probably the man to beat in the Invitational on Saturday, September 19. Also fast were ACT regulars John Donahue and part timer Ben Rowe, who also has some experience at NHMS.

DAVID RAGAN AT THUNDER ROAD

RAGAN READY FOR FINAL THURSDAY NIGHT AT T-ROAD

Unadilla, Georgia’s David Ragan will pull into Thunder Road for Thursday night’s final race of the 50th season on a high after a morale boosting victory in Bristol, Tennessee this past weekend over Carl Edwards.  The 23 year old prospect for NASCAR stardom won his second Nationwide series of the season after his victory at Talladega, Alabama earlier this summer.  The 100 lap main event will put the “scourge” of Georgia short tracking up against Thunder Road’s top talent.  Along with his Nationwide series success, he’s been a top ten finisher in the past NASCAR Sprint Cup Series 11 times, driving for John Henry (Red Sox Owner) and Jack Roush.  He has already been signed for another year in their UPS car for Sprint Cup Racing.

2010 ACT Tour

ACT US TOUR TO OPEN 2010 ASPHALT SEASON AT

ALBANY SARATOGA SPEEDWAY

 

The American Canadian Tour (ACT) will open up the 2010 season at the 4/10-mile Albany-Saratoga Speedway in Malta, New York (A/S) in April.

 

Albany-Saratoga  Promoter Bruce Richards contacted the ACT office several months ago and discussed the possibility that there might be a change from the clay surface to the asphalt. “Part of our plan is to pull up the clay this Fall and open the first several events in the Spring with the asphalt. We have considered this for a number of years, but now it is time to make the move. The ACT has grown throughout the Northeast and Canada over the past several years, and our long-standing relationship with Tom Curley and Ken Squier made this a natural for us to hook up again for what will be a very exciting change for Albany-Saratoga Speedway’’, said Richards.

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.
