2015 Generation Next 151

ACT Kicks Off New Beginning For Speedway 51

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) travels to Speedway 51 in Groveton, NH on Saturday, May 30 for the Generation Next ACT 151. Although the ACT Late Model Tour has been to Groveton 12 times previously, the 13th visit will hold a greater meaning, as it marks a new beginning for the ¼-mile oval formerly known as Riverside Speedway.

The event will be the first stock car race held at Speedway 51 since it was purchased at auction last November by Joey Laquerre, the winningest driver in the history of Barre, VT’s Thunder Road and patriarch of the Laquerre racing family. The auction occurred just one week after Laquerre’s grandson, up-and-coming Late Model racer Joey M. Laquerre, died from injuries sustained in an ATV accident.


2015 Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic

Pit Notes: PASS Takes to Thunder Road in Open Practice

The Pro All Stars Series (PASS) North took to Barre, VT's Thunder Road on Saturday, May 23, marking the first time since 1995 that Super Late Models had been on the high banks. The four-hour open practice session was held in preparation for the Mekkelsen Memorial Day Classic on Sunday, May 24.

The day began badly for two expected contenders. PASS North point leader Mike Rowe blew an engine after just a seven-lap run. Defending American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr. also lost a motor later in the session.


American Racer Three Stars Award

Airborne Spring Green 115 Three Stars Awarded

The American Racer Three Star program is designed to recognize three teams in no particular order of performance that had outstanding races at American-Canadian Tour (ACT) U.S. tour events. There are no specific criteria for deciding who might receive the award of a free American Racer Tire (value $125.00), but a special effort by a team, exceptional race, just plain old hard luck, or any other accepted reason to give the award is used to decide the award recipients.

The three stars are chosen by ACT officials and will receive certificates for use of a free American Racer tire at a race of their choosing during 2015.

2015 Spring Green 115

Polewarczyk Wins “Battle of the Border” With Laperle at Airborne Spring Green

Hudson, NH’s Joey Polewarczyk Jr. came out on top of a battle with St-Denis, QC’s Patrick Laperle to win the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Spring Green 115 at Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY on Sunday.

Defending ACT Late Model Tour Champion “Joey Pole” took the lead from Laperle on lap 82 and led the rest of the way in the ACT U.S. and Série ACT combination event. Pole had lost the top spot to Laperle on a lap 44 restart, but stalked him for nearly 40 laps and eventually came away with his second win of the season and second straight ACT victory at Airborne.


2015 Spring Green 115

Labbe Leads Canadian Contingent into Airborne Spring Green

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) U.S. Late Model Tour and the Quebec-based Série ACT head to Airborne Park Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY this Saturday, May 16 for the Spring Green 115. The combination event is the 2015 season opener for the Canadian series, and a full contingent of Quebec competitors is expected to make the trek across the border.

Defending Série ACT Champion Alex Labbe of St-Albert, QC leads the Canadian charge into the fast ½-mile oval. The 2013 Fall Foliage 200 Airborne winner got an early start to 2015 by finishing fourth in the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee USA Speedway on April 26.


2015 ACT Season

Babb, Packard Making Strong Impressions Early in 2015 ACT Season

The 2015 American-Canadian Tour (ACT) season has reached the quarter-pole of its 15-race schedule. While former champions Wayne Helliwell Jr. and Joey Polewarczyk Jr. find themselves at the top of the standings, a growing crop of new and young racers are making their presence known.

Windham, ME’s Brad Babb has been one of the drivers to beat so far. Babb returned to the ACT Tour full-time in 2015 driving a car owned by Joey Laquerre. He scored his first ACT podium finish at the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup, then earned a storybook win in the Merchants Bank 150 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road. It was the first race at Thunder Road since Laquerre’s grandson, up-and-coming local racer Joey M. Laquerre, died in an ATV accident last October.


American Racer Three Stars Award

ACT Awards Merchants Bank 150 Three Stars

The American Racer Three Star program is designed to recognize three non-podium finishers, in no particular order of performance, who had outstanding races at ACT U.S. Tour events. There are no specific criteria for deciding who might receive the award of a free American Racer Tire (value $125.00), but a special effort by a team, exceptional race, just plain old hard luck, or any other accepted reason to give the award is used to decide the award recipients.

The three stars are chosen by ACT officials and will receive certificates for use of a free American Racer tire at a race of their choosing during the 2015 season.

2015 Merchants Bank 150

Babb Scores Emotional First ACT Win in Merchants Bank 150

Brad Babb came into the season looking for his first career American-Canadian Tour victory. He and his Joey Laquerre–owned team earned it in perhaps the most dramatic way possible on Sunday, May 3.

Babb took the lead from Scott Dragon with 18 laps to go and went on to win the Merchants Bank 150 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road. The win came following a pre-race tribute to Laquerre’s late grandson Joey M. Laquerre, leading to an emotional celebration in Victory Lane.

Thunder Road Car Show and Practice

Pit Notes: Thunder Road Car Show and Practice

The annual Thunder Road Car Show and open practice were held on Saturday, May 2. A fleet of stock cars from all three Thunder Road racing divisions lined Barre, VT's Main Street from 9:00am-12:00pm, with the 2014 track champions leading the race car parade up Quarry Hill.

The Pit Stop Challenge featured the crews of last year's Thunder Road and ACT Champions: ACT Tour Champion Joey Polewarczyk Jr., Late Model “King of the Road” Derrick O'Donnell, Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen Champion Jason Woodard, and Allen Lumber Street Stock title holder Tommy “Thunder” Smith. Williamstown, VT's Smith and his #50 One Credit Union Tiger Sportsman team won the challenge by changing two tires in 28.04 seconds.


2015 Merchants Bank 150

Helliwell, ACT Tour Take on Local Stars in Merchants Bank 150

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will help Barre, VT’s Thunder Road open its 56th season of competition on Sunday, May 3 with the 17th Annual Merchants Bank 150. Wayne Helliwell Jr. will be going for his second straight win in the event, but a host of ACT Tour and local Thunder Road Late Model drivers are looking to take the trophy home.

Dover, NH’s Helliwell picked up his first Thunder Road win in last year’s Merchants Bank 150, taking the lead using a crossover move on Jimmy Hebert with 16 laps remaining. The two-time ACT Tour Champion became the 11th different winner in 16 editions of the event. Helliwell and his Bruce Bernhardt–owned team come into this year’s event with the ACT Tour point lead after their victory in last Sunday’s New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH.
