ACT drivers and teams descended on New Hampshire Motor Speedway this past Tuesday and Wednesday for a two day testing session in preparation for the September 19th ACT Invitational at the track.

ACT NHMS Test and Tune Day Two

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.



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




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.




The best eleven (11) teams from the ACT US TOUR and the best eleven (11) teams from the Série ACT Castrol will race each other, and they will also race as ‘teammates’, in the 2nd annual Coors Showdown at Chaudiere on Saturday, August 29th.


The annual All-Star event, attended by over 4,000 fans in 2008, will have a bonus twist in 2009. Both the US team or the Canadian team will receive points for their respective finishes. The winning ‘team’ will receive a $5,500 bonus to be divided equally between all eleven teammates. Each team is guaranteed $1,000.00 for attending and the additional ‘team’ incentive will bring he total to over $1,500 for the winning team.


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. 





The American Canadian Tour (ACT) announced today that over a 30-day period from August 29th through September 27th there would be purses posted of over a quarter million dollars for Late Model race teams in the Northeast and Canada.


Starting with the Coors Light Showdown of Champions event at the 1/3-mile banked Autodrome Chaudiere in the Beauce region outside Quebec City, the top eleven (11) US ACT Tour teams will go head to head with the top (11) ACT Castrol Serie teams. The winner of the event gets the grand prize of $5,000 from the $35,000 in posted purse. Everyone is guaranteed $1,000 minimum, but this year, promoter Michel Lessard has posted a ‘kicker’. The winning ‘team’, be it the US or Castrol team, will share equal portions of an added $5,500.00. The $500 bonus per member will go to the team whose 11 total finishes outpoint the other team. The biggest names in ACT racing from both sides of the border will be attending the second edition of the Showdown. Patrick Laperle barely beat defending ACT Castrol Champion, Alexandre Gingras, in the inaugural 200-lap event in 2008.
