Waterbury, VT – The American Canadian Tour (ACT) announced today that Bond Auto Parts, a family run business since 1956 with 37 locations throughout Vermont and New Hampshire, will become the title sponsor of the 2010 ACT 4 event series for the “Tiger Sportsman” division, known as the Bond Auto/WIX Tiger Sportsman Tour.

The Sportsman division is a Limited Late Model car, which has been a mainstay of Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT, the home of Bond Auto.

“We are really happy to be able to support this ACT division, which will appear in several markets that we service,” said Mark Mast, Vice President of Marketing for Bond. “Our employees have been great fans of ACT and Thunder Road over the years, as well as all the regional race tracks. This series of 100 lap events for the popular ACT Tiger Sportsmen seemed like a great fit for some of our marketing needs, and allows us to show support for the racers that have always supported our Bond Auto locations.”

Bond Auto has a long history with the ACT flagship track, Thunder Road. “When we were asked to take Thunder Road back from the bank in 1980, it was Bond Auto that jumped on board to help us. They have remained not only loyal corporate partners throughout the years, but great fans as well,” said Tom Curley, President of ACT.

In 2010, Bond will also become the entitlement sponsor of the Tiger Sportsman division at all Thunder Road events. The division will be known as the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman division.  Bond Auto is the entitlement sponsor of one of the most historic races held at Thunder Road for the American Canadian Tour, the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic.

Brendan Moodie from Wolcott, VT, a long time veteran of the Tiger division said, “This is just great. I love going to different tracks and this division always seems to have a huge number of guys that can win on any given day. That is what makes it so much fun. This series of four races should be fun for the teams and fans, I can’t wait until the snow gets out of here and we can start racing again.”

The BOND Auto/WIX Tiger Sportsman Tour will open at White Mountain Motorsport Park on Saturday, June 05, 2010 with the first of four 100-lap events the series will run. Thunder Road will host a holiday 100-lap event on Thursday, July 01, 2010. The BOND Auto/WIX Tiger Sportsman Tour will visit Canaan Fair Speedway on Saturday, August 21, 2010, and the Champion will be crowned on Saturday, October 09, 2010 at the new Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH.
