Waterbury, VT – Eddie MacDonald from Rowley, MA has entered the American Canadian Tour (ACT) championship at the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (BRMS) this Saturday night. The winner of the TD Bank 250 at the Oxford Plains Speedway last Sunday will take his Rollie Lachance-led team to BRMS to compete in the ACT point-counting event.

Red MacDonald, the owner of Lee USA Speedway and father of one of New England’s brightest stock car stars said, “Eddie wanted to work on his NASCAR Camping World East car this weekend to get ready for a race at Adirondack Speedway in a couple of weeks. I told him it was just a one-day  race at Beech Ridge and we needed to go race this Saturday. I told him I would put the ACT Late Model back together after the tear down last Sunday night if he was willing to head up the road about an hour this Saturday.”


MacDonald headlined a stellar field of cars last Sunday at the 36th annual summer classic at Oxford Plains where he captured over $35,000.00 in prize money, and put his name in the storied history books of winners of the prestigious “Oxford 250”. “We really have fun racing with these Late Models and when we see the mix of veteran drivers like Brad Leighton, Mike Rowe, Brian Hoar, Brent Dragon along with the new stars like Joey Polewarczyk, Nick Sweet and Scott Payea, we know we are going to have to battle all day. It is a lot of fun,” said MacDonald.


Post time for the Beech Ridge ACT 150 is 6:00 pm this Saturday, July 25, 2009.
