ACT Point Battle Tightens Heading into Twin State

The 2009 American Canadian Tour (ACT) point’s battle is heating up as the Tour prepares for Twin State Speedway this Friday, July 31. The ACT Late Model Tour’s visit to Twin State will be their second in history and the ninth event on the 2009 schedule. ACT’s last trip to the third-mile speedway was in 2004, when Montreal’s Patrick Laperle led 88 of the 100 laps on his way to the win.

The Twin State 100 will be an important event in the 2009 point battle. Scott Payea of Milton, Vermont currently holds a 22 point lead in the ACT Tour Championship Point Standings. Payea has lead throughout the majority of the season using consistency to hold onto his lead. Through the first eight events Payea has finished in the top ten all but once with an incredible five top threes. Although Payea has appeared dominant throughout the 2009 season, five-time ACT Tour champion Brian Hoar of Williston, Vermont has tightened up the point race in the last few weeks. Hoar has made a charge toward the front of the point standings in the last two races with a sixth place finish at Kawartha Speedway and a win in last Saturday’s Beech Ridge 150. 


Brian Hoar Scores Career Win Number 24 at Beech Ridge 150

Five-time American Canadian Tour Champion Brian Hoar of Williston, VT notched career win number 24 in the Beech Ridge 150 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway. Hoar started in the ninth position and moved into the lead on lap 37 by passing local favorite Aarron Ricker. Hoar then appeared to have the race in hand as he was chased through lap traffic by Randy Potter during an 80 lap green flag run.

After a couple of late cautions Eric Williams moved up into second place and challenged Hoar for the win right down to the end. Williams would come home second followed by Cris Michaud while Potter held on for fourth and Maine native Ricky Rolfe finished fifth. Coming home sixth was Jay Laquerre followed by Brent Dragon, John Donahue, Scott Payea, and Nick Brown rounding out the top ten.




Eddie MacDonald from Rowley, MA has entered the American Canadian Tour (ACT) championship at the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (BRMS) this Saturday night. The winner of the TD Bank 250 at the Oxford Plains Speedway last Sunday will take his Rollie Lachance-led team to BRMS to compete in the ACT point-counting event.


Red MacDonald, the owner of Lee USA Speedway and father of one of New England’s brightest stock car stars said, “Eddie wanted to work on his NASCAR Camping World East car this weekend to get ready for a race at Adirondack Speedway in a couple of weeks. I told him it was just a one-day  race at Beech Ridge and we needed to go race this Saturday. I told him I would put the ACT Late Model back together after the tear down last Sunday night if he was willing to head up the road about an hour this Saturday.”


MacDonald headlined a stellar field of cars last Sunday at the 36th annual summer classic at Oxford Plains where he captured over $35,000.00 in prize money, and put his name in the storied history books of winners of the prestigious “Oxford 250”. “We really have fun racing with these Late Models and when we see the mix of veteran drivers like Brad Leighton, Mike Rowe, Brian Hoar, Brent Dragon along with the new stars like Joey Polewarczyk, Nick Sweet and Scott Payea, we know we are going to have to battle all day. It is a lot of fun,” said MacDonald.


Post time for the Beech Ridge ACT 150 is 6:00 pm this Saturday, July 25, 2009.


The American Canadian Tour (ACT) will return to Beech Ridge Motor Speedway with the most diverse group of racers of the 2009 championship campaign. ACT point leader Scott Payea holds a slim 23-point lead over Hudson, New Hampshire’s Joey Polewarczyk (Joey Pole). Five-time ACT Champion and former NASCAR Busch East star Brian Hoar sits in third and is looking for his first win in 2009. Hoar comes off a strong outing in last week’s TD Banknorth 250 at Oxford, ME. Hoar finished 4th after leading the “250” in the second half of the richest one-day Late Model stock car race in America. ACT veterans Randy Potter from Groveton, New Hampshire and John Donahue from Graniteville, Vermont round out the top five, separated by only 79 points just past the half-way mark in the 2009 season.

Brian Hoar also had a strong showing as he led some laps himself.

After the final pit stops MacDonald worked his way back to the front by racing by Hoar, Donahue, Patrick Laperle, Dragon and several other ACT regulars running near the front. Laperle ran near the front of the pack for the majority of the race and came home with a second place finish, while Donahue held on for third.
