Big Money Ahead For ACT Late Models
WATERBURY, Vt. — American Canadian Tour officials have announced a five-race stretch of events through September and the first week of October boasting over $300,000 in winnings called Fall ACTion.
Fall ACTion will be kicked off by the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic at Thunder Road on Sunday and closed out by the Fall Foliage 200 at Airborne Speedway Oct. 6.
The 34th annual Bond Auto Labor Day Classic marks the second to last championship counting race on the American Canadian Tour, and will also post a $45,000 purse for competitors. Just six days after that, Serie ACT Castrol competitors go head-to-head with US ACT Tour competitors in a team-based Showdown at Chaudiere for a $35,000 purse on Saturday, September 8. Teams will then turn to the $81,000 fourth annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational on the big stage at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Sept. 22.
Competitors then prepare for the biggest event of the fall, Thunder Road’s 50th Annual People’s United Bank Milk Bowl on the weekend of Sept. 29-30, which is offering an unprecedented purse of over $120,000. Finally, the American Canadian Tour will close out championship honors with the $35,000 Fall Foliage 200 at Airborne Speedway Oct. 6.
ACT President Tom Curley is proud to present this caliber of racing in the Northeast. “With the 50th Milk Bowl and many of our marquee events scheduled for the fall, we really wanted to crank it up this year,” said ACT President Tom Curle. “This is just an extra incentive for these racers, some of these guys could win some serious money in the next few weeks.”
