Série ACT, the Canadian touring series operating under the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) flagship, is pleased to announce the 2018 schedule for ACT Late Model Sportsman, which will consist of nine (9) events at three different tracks in the Province of Quebec.

Autodrome Montmagny, located in the scenic city of Montmagny, which is 45 minutes East of the Quebec city bridges, will host 4 Championship races as well. The 3/8 mile oval will host events on June 9th and 24th, July 21st, and September 1st.
After a year absent from the calendar, Autodrome Chaudiere is reinstated. Série ACT will visit the 1/4 mile track nested in the hills of the city of Vallée-Jonction (Quebec) on July 28th.
The last 2018 event on the schedule will be raced at ASE on September 23rd, at which time it will crown its new Champion. The winning Champion will be succeeding to an impressive list of former Champions : Jonathan Bouvrette, Patrick Laperle (4), Dany Trépanier, Alex Labbé, Donald Theetge (2), Jean-François Déry, Karl Allard, Alexandre Gingras, Sylvain Lacombe.
Marc Patrick Roy, the Managing director for Série ACT is pleased with the schedule, but his work is not completed: “The drivers and spectators had asked for more events than we did in 2017. We listened. Also, I am pleased to say that our schedule is harmonized with the ACT Late Model Tour (US Tour), a driver, if he wanted to, could race in 18 events in 2018. But the planning work for 2018 is not finished. We need to complete our sponsorship deals and while we do that, we also continue to work on the possibility of having a 10th event on the schedule. More news will be released prior to the New Year as it becomes available.”
