ACT TOUR CHANGES OWNERSHIP.......................



Greetings from Cris Michaud and Pat Malone! Many of you have heard the news by now that we have purchased the American-Canadian Tour. We have received a number of calls, emails, and other communications from drivers and fans over the past few days, and we appreciate everybody’s support as we embark on this new journey.

We are excited and honored to have the opportunity to carry on the legacy and ideals established by Tom Curley. Although ACT has taken many different on-track forms since its founding in 1986, from the old ACT Pro Stock Tour to the current Late Model Tour, it has always been committed to producing exciting competition that is affordable for teams and spectators. We are dedicated to carrying on that tradition in the years to come and continuing ACT’s status as one of the premier auto racing series in the Northeast.



American Canadian Tour (ACT) Managing Director Darla Hartt announced today a change in ownership of the 31-year old late model stock car racing series to Cris Michaud and Pat Malone, who completed purchase of the Thunder Road speedplant earlier this year.


Under the guidance of its founder, Tom Curley, ACT’s strict rules requirements, including the use of crate engines and other cost-restricting guidelines, positioned the American Canadian Tour as a long-standing leader in innovation in the short track industry.  ACT events have been enjoyed by race fans throughout New England, New York, eastern Canada and Florida.  Curley’s passion for the sport was evident in the fiery pit meetings he staged prior to each event, and his hands-on approach and inclusive philosophy proved a successful formula.  Curley died in May of complications of COPD.


MacDonald wins at Thompson, Payea reigns

Elusive 1st ACT Championship for Payea


Eddie MacDonald took control of the American Canadian Tour (ACT) 75-lap season finale at Thompson Speedway Saturday and sped off to a dominant win.

Four spots back, Scott Payea nailed down the 2017 ACT championship in the Harrison Redi-Mix No. 37. With his eighth top-five finish in nine races.

MacDonald, driving the Hancock Electric No. 17, took the lead briefly from Thompson regular William Wall on lap 12, regained it for keeps on lap 19 and then survived four restarts before drawing away once the race stayed under green.
