2015 ACT Season Opener

Helliwell Looks to Reclaim ACT Title in 2015

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will see the return of one of the Northeast’s most accomplished drivers this coming season. Wayne Helliwell Jr., the 2012 and 2013 ACT Champion, recently stated that he will be competing full-time on the Tour in 2015.

The Dover, NH veteran came out on top of duels with 8-time Tour Champion Brian Hoar in 2012 and Joey Polewarczyk Jr. in 2013, respectively. Helliwell won six races over those two years, including the 2012 Fall Foliage 200 at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY and three victories at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, VT.

Phase two of the program for New Champion contenders is a $2,500 bonus at the 7th annual Bond ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, set for Saturday, September 26. $500 will be awarded to each of the top-five finishing New Champion–­eligible drivers, regardless of finishing position. Drivers must have competed in a minimum of five ACT-sanctioned events in 2015 prior to the Invitational in order to receive this bonus.

2015 ACT Season Opener

Polewarczyk Jr., Stearns Lead ACT Drivers Looking to do Double Duty at Oxford

One of the biggest seasons in American-Canadian Tour (ACT) history launches on Saturday, April 18 as part of the first ever doubleheader between the ACT Late Model stock cars and the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models. More than 70 combined cars are expected at the Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, ME, and multiple ACT drivers will attempt to run both 150-lap events that afternoon.

Defending ACT Tour Champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr. of Hudson, NH leads the drivers looking to complete all 300 laps of feature racing on the 3/8th-mile oval. “Joey Pole” said that he and his team wanted to attempt the doubleheader as soon as they learned that it was on the schedule.

“It’s challenging just to run one car and try to get the car handling great for the race,” Pole noted. “But now the challenge is to get both cars – spending as much time as possible on both cars as you can to try and get them handling the best for a long run and a long race. But I feel really confident with my crew that we’ll be able to get both cars running well.”

2015 ACT Season Opener

ACT/PASS Doubleheader to Open 2015 Season At Oxford Plains

The announcement last November that there was an alliance between the American-Canadian Tour (ACT), a Northeast regional Late Model stock car division, and the Pro All Star Series (PASS), a Super Late Model Series that competes throughout the Northeast with PASS North and the Southeast with sister series PASS South, came as welcome news to many race fans and teams in New England and Quebec. 

With the recent postponement of ACT’s traditional opening event at the Lee USA Speedway due to continuing snow removal issues after a record-breaking winter for cold and snowfall that has lingered into the spring, the historic doubleheader event at Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS) in Oxford, ME now inherits the start of the 2015 season in the Northeast on Saturday, April 18.

Dragon Ready For Title Run

Dragon, RGR Team Ready for Thunder Road Title Run

Second-generation racer Scott Dragon is about enter his second full season of Late Model competition at Thunder Road International Speedbowl, and after a year of working with the Richard Green Racing (RGR) team, is ready to contend for a title in 2015.

After the opening event of the 2014 Thunder Road season, veteran Joey Becker of Cambridge, VT, one of Thunder Road’s favorite racers, told his long-time friend and car owner Rick Green that, for health and personal reasons, he needed to give up the driver’s seat of the RGR ACT Late Model ride. Green first chose Becker out of the Thunder Road Tiger Sportsman division to be his driver during the 2003 season. That partnership enjoyed much success over the years, and Becker, an accomplished fabricator, told Green he would still like to work on the 16VT Chevrolet Impala SS. He also suggested that they try and get his friend Scott Dragon of Milton, VT to take over the driver’s seat for the remainder of the full Thunder Road season.

2015 ACT Season Opener

Winter of 2015 Forces Postponement of ACT Lee NH Governor’s Cup

Historic Oxford Plains ACT/Pass Twin 150’s To Open ACT Season

The never-ending winter of 2015 has forced officials of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and the Lee USA Speedway to postpone the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150, originally scheduled for Saturday, April 11 and Sunday, April 12.

“We have waited in hopes that we would start to get some relief from the massive amount of snow we received this past winter in our region,” said Bill Callen, manager of the Lee USA Speedway. “We wanted to get things opened up in time for our ACT opening event, but that is going to be impossible with the amount of snow that still is at the Speedway. We know that fans and teams have always enjoyed coming to Lee for the first event of the season, but unfortunately we still have snow drifts from the frontstretch up over the grandstands! We just don’t believe we can get things prepared appropriately in the next two weeks. The best thing for all concerned was to give some early notice, as many teams and fans travel from Quebec, Maine and Vermont to our traditional ACT openers.”

ACT 2015 Season Preview

Lee, Oxford, Thunder Road Openers Challenge ACT Teams

 The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will compete in three 150-lap events on three completely different tracks in all three northern New England states to open the 2015 season. The New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150, set for Sunday, April 12, is the traditional opening event for ACT teams held yearly at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH. Teams will then travel to Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS) in Oxford, ME a week later, followed by their annual visit to Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT.

The fast Lee 3/8th-mile oval might statistically favor multi-time Lee champion and two-time ACT champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr., but he has tried eight times to date with a best finish of second in last year’s event, and is long overdue for a win. There is also favorite Eddie MacDonald, who is on a roll with five consecutive wins in recent outings, going back to the Thunder Road Milk Bowl last October. McDonald captured the NH Governor’s Cup last year in his ninth try at his home track. Defending 2014 ACT Champion Joey Polewarczk, Jr. (Pole) is also considered a favorite, but his only win at Lee USA came in a 100-lap opening race back in 2008.

ACT 2015 Season Preview

Rising Stars of ACT Look to Make a Statement in 2015

A trio of 21-and-under drivers are aiming to step up to the plate in 2015 and make their mark on the American-Canadian Tour (ACT). Emily Packard, Kyle Welch, and Brandon Atkins all experienced success during their first full seasons on the ACT Tour in 2014, and are looking to emerge as title contenders this season.

Of the three, Packard enjoyed the strongest overall 2014 season. After competing part-time on the ACT Tour in 2013, the then 17-year-old moved up to a full schedule last year and turned heads early. The East Montpelier, VT resident scored her first Tour podium finish in the second race of the year with a third-place effort in the Merchant’s Bank 150 at Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT in late April.

ACT 2015 Season Preview

Special Events Highlight 2015 ACT Schedule

The 2015 American-Canadian Tour (ACT) schedule is shaping up to be one of the biggest in recent memory. The U.S. Tour will hold 13 point-counting events and three special events at 12 different tracks throughout the northeastern United States and Canada, featuring a variety of long-standing events, new tracks, and new alliances.

Four new races will grace the 2015 season, beginning with a 150-lap event at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, ME on Saturday, April 18 as part of a doubleheader with the Pro All Star Series (PASS). The race will be the first for ACT at Oxford since 2012, followed by a second 150-lap ACT event at the track on Saturday, June 27. ACT will also make its inaugural visit to the Thompson Speedway in Thompson, CT on Friday, October 16, and Saturday, October 17 for a 100-lap race as part of the annual World Series of Speedway Racing.  The Tour will return to Autodrome Chaudiere in Valleé-Jct., QC on Saturday, September 12 for a 200-lap event, which will be both a PASS doubleheader and a combination race with Série ACT. The Chaudiere event is one of three U.S./Canada combos on the calendar, joining the Spring Green 115 on Saturday, May 16 and the Fall Foliage 200 on Saturday, October 3, both at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY. This also marks the return of the Spring Green to Airborne after being held at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in West Haven, VT in recent years.

ACT Season Opener at Lee

ACT Lee USA Opener Historically Unpredictable

American Canadian Tour (ACT) fans attending the annual New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 opening events at the Lee USA Speedway are generally the real winners at the seacoast oval on opening day. Sunday, April 12 will be no exception. History shows that there are many surprises in opening events at the fast 3/8 mile oval.

In the ten years running the NH Governor’s Cup, there has only been one repeat winner. Eight-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar of Williston, VT won the title back-to-back in 2011 and 2012. In 2009, Hoar and teammate for the event Mike Olsen (N. Haverhill, NH) looked like runaway favorites until Goodyear tire issues took both teams out of winning contention while running in the first two spots during the first half of the event.
