Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. Wins CARQUEST Governor’s Cup 150

Young Joey “Pole” Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, NH scores his first career win at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in the CARQUEST Governor’s Cup 150. Pole got by Jamie Fisher to take the lead shortly after a restart with just under 100 laps to go. Nick Sweet then worked his way to second and setup the battle of the race. Pole and Sweet ran side by side and worked their way through lap traffic before a lap 145 caution staged a shootout for the win. Pole proved to be too much for Sweet as he held onto the lead for the final 5 laps. Cris Michaud passed Sweet with two to go for second to come home with the best finish ever for a Ford crate motor in ACT Late Model competition. Sweet settled for third followed by Jamie Fisher and John Donahue finishing in the top five. Sixth through tenth was filled by Dave Pembroke, Trampas Demers, Phil Scott, Joey Laquerre and Eric Williams.

Pole is a regular of the American Canadian Tour, where he has three career wins. He has already qualified for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on September 19th by winning an ACT Tour race earlier this the season at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Thunder Road Pushed Back by Rain to Friday

The Harvest Equipment stock car racing program set for Thursday, June 18 at Barre’s Thunder Road International Speedbowl has been washed away by rain.  The four-division card has been rescheduled for Friday, June 19 at 6:30pm.  Gates will open at 5:00pm, regular admission rates will be in effect at $9.50 for adults, $3 for children (6-12), and just $20 for a family of any two adults and any two kids. NASCAR Legend Bobby Allison will still be making his scheduled appearance tomorrow night.


Harvest Equipment Night was scheduled to be the second Thursday night event of the 50th Anniversary Season. It is the fourth race of the year for the NAPA Tiger Sportsman, Allen Lumber Street Stocks and Powershift Junkyard Warriors. The ACT Late Models will run their second weekly event of the season at tomorrow’s Harvest Equipment event.


Dave Pembroke of Montpelier, VT leads the Late Model division after his win during the first Thursday Night event sponsored by Ferguson Waterworks. Barre’s Cody Blake is currently atop the NAPA Tiger Sportsman division by just nine points, while Rookie of the Year contender Tucker Williams of Hyde Park, VT leads the Allen Lumber Street Stocks and Waitsfield’s Kevin Streeter holds the Powershift Junkyard Warriors points lead.




The American Canadian Tour (ACT) defending Champion Patrick Laperle from St Denis, Quebec has entered the CARQUEST Vermont Governor’s Cup 150 on June 25th at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT.  Laperle not only won his first ACT US title at the ¼ mile bullring in 2008, but he has a knack for winning the big shows at what many call the toughest quarter mile in America. Laperle is defending Champion of the 2008 Chittenden Milk Bowl, which he also won in 2006.


The challenge to race against one of NASCAR’s greatest drivers, Tony Stewart, who will also compete in one of the most exciting 150 lap events of the season on Thursday, June 25th was just what the JPN Laperle Racing team enjoys. “I can’t wait to race against Tony Stewart. My brother and I are huge fans of his and this is going to be one of my best racing memories. The idea that I can just race and not worry about ACT Série Castrol points or anything like that is what I love to do. I hope we come to the wire side-by-side for the win after 149 laps. It would be the thrill of a lifetime”, said Patrick Laperle.


Sean Kennedy Wins Toromont CAT 100       

Ottawa, ON – Sean Kennedy of Dunrobin, ON won the Toromont CAT 100 at his hometrack, Capital City Speedway. Kennedy took the lead from another local Matt Moffiitt on lap 25 and never looked back. The Capital City Speedway regulars used their experience on the third-mile oval to their advantage and two of them finished in the top five.

2008 ACT Tour Champion Patrick Laperle won a late battle with Jonathan Urlin to capture the second place position. Urlin came home third, followed by Matt Moffitt, and Yvon Bedard rounded out the top five. Last week’s winner, Donald Theetge finished sixth, chased to the line by Daniel Descoste, Pier-Luc Ouellette, Brandon Watson, and Ken Baird finished in the top ten.

Unofficially, nine cars finished on the lead lap of the 100 lap event that was slowed by seven cautions. The last caution came on lap 44 as the final 56 laps were run without a yellow.

Kennedy becomes the ninth driver to qualify for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as there have been no repeat winners in the combined nine events on the Series ACT Castrol and the ACT Tour. Kennedy becomes the only qualifier so far from the Province of Ontario. He joins drivers from Vermont, New Hampshire and Quebec.

The Series ACT Castrol will be at Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, QC next Saturday, June 20. The ACT Tour will also be running next Saturday as they were rained out at Waterford Speedbowl this weekend and will be completing the final 72 laps of the event.

Nutmeg State 100

Speedbowl’s Late Model Competitors Ready to Host ACT Tour

Waterford, CT (June 8, 2009) – Late Model teams at Waterford Speedbowl will have Saturday June 13th off from NASCAR Whelen All-American Series action.  The ACT Late Model Tour visits the historic shoreline oval for a 100-lap event however, which some ‘Bowl competitors are hoping to provide some home cooking in.

The Speedbowl Late Model division is comprised of ACT-legal cars, giving the “home team” of drivers a leg up on the ACT Tour competition when it comes to experience and number of laps around the tricky three eighths mile Speedbowl.  Waterford regulars Bruce Thomas Jr. and Tim Jordan will lead the charge for the locals.  Others expected to defend their turf versus the Tour include Dennis Stampfl, Allen Coates, and Joe Curioso.   Another driver looking to qualify is Howard Payne.  Payne is just getting started in the division, but the multiple-time winner in the Truck Series has proven to be a quick learner in his racing career.  Payne will be racing for a cause, donating any winnings from his effort to Racing Against Cancer.
