Airborne Speedway Redesigned, Fall Foliage 300 Returns to ACT Schedule

PLATTSBURGH, NY – Airborne Speedway Promoter Mike Perrotte has announced plans for a major renovation of the historic Plattsburgh, NY stock car track, including a total reconfiguration of the racing surface and layout for the 2009 racing season. As a result, the track has added a second American-Canadian Tour Late Model Championship event, the storied Fall Foliage 300, to its 2009 schedule.
The addition of the race brings the ACT schedule to 13 championship events, and compliments the annual Spring Green 100 at Airborne on May 9. The 38th Annual Fall Foliage 300 will be held on Sunday, Sept. 13, 2009. The 300-lap distance will also be the first of its kind for the present-day ACT Late Model Tour.
Airborne Speedway’s 4/10-mile, D-shaped layout will be partially razed to allow construction of new, sweeping, progressively-banked corners, creating multiple racing grooves and closer competition. The present layout has been in use since 1990. Previously, Airborne Speedway had been a 5/8-mile track with both dirt and asphalt surfaces since 1954.

The series begins its 18th season at the 3/8-mile Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH on Sunday, April 19, with the race distance increased from 100 laps in 2008 to 150 for 2009.  The second event is the Merchants Bank 150 at the 1/4-mile Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl bullring in Barre, VT on Sunday, May 3.  The Airborne Speedway half-mile in Plattsburgh, NY hosts the 35th Annual Spring Green 100 on Saturday, May 9, with Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway holding the first of its two 150-lap races on Sunday, May 17.  The ACT Late Model Tour returns to Thunder Road on Sunday, May 24 for the 47th Annual Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic, a Twin 100 doubleheader with the open-wheel True Value Modified Racing Series.

The historic, 3/8-mile Waterford Speedbowl on the Connecticut shoreline will return to the ACT schedule on Saturday, June 13 for a 100-lap event, and the scenic White Mountain Motorsports Park 1/4-mile in North Woodstock, NH will hold its annual 150-lap race on Saturday, June 27.  Ontario’s Kawartha Speedway, a state-of-the-art, 4/10-mile oval near the city of Peterborough, will host the Summer Sizzler 200 on Sunday, July 12.

New Hampshire Motor Speedway to Host ACT Invitational in 2009

Late Model stock car drivers will get their first super-speedway experience next year, as the 1-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH hosts the inaugural American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Invitational on NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sylvania 300 weekend, September 18-20, 2009.  The ACT/NHMS event will have a purse of more than $65,000 for invited and approved teams that attend the historic, groundbreaking event for Late Model stock car racing.

“New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been looking for a way to support the short track industry throughout the Northeast and Québec/Ontario markets.  ACT offers the perfect conduit to help us meet our marketing goal,” said NHMS Vice President and General Manager Jerry Gappens.

“New Hampshire Motor Speedway is giving short track fans and teams throughout the Northeast and Canada a wonderful opportunity,” said ACT President Tom Curley.

The ACT Invitational race will be a 50-lap all-star event with 36 starters.  Each 2009 race winner on the U.S.-based ACT Late Model Tour and the Québec/Ontario-based Série ACT-Castrol as of Sept. 18, 2009 will be awarded a guaranteed starting spot at NHMS, along with a $500 bonus for each win, contingent upon participation at the NHMS event.
