Waterbury, VT – The American Canadian Tour (ACT) recently announced that the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 originally scheduled for April 18 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH has been rescheduled for Friday, June 11. The event was originally scheduled as the 2010 ACT season opener but was postponed due to rain. It will be the 8th ACT Late Model Tour event ever held at the 1/3-mile speedway and the 3rd event of the 2010 ACT season.

ACT teams will have a challenge in racing with the Lee regulars, who have gained experience in the longer distance ACT races over the years. The Lee contingent will be led by defending champ and current point leader Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, NH. Helliwell has already scored two wins in the first two events at Lee in 2010 and is currently leading the Ford Blue Oval Cup Challenge.

ACT favorites include past Lee winners Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., who won the 2008 NH Gov Cup, and Jean-Paul Cyr, winner of a 2005 Lee event. Defending and six-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar has never won an ACT event at Lee but has to be considered a favorite as he currently sits atop the ACT point standings. Other contenders include Scott Payea, who has two third place finishes in five career starts at Lee, Brent Dragon, John Donahue, Randy Potter, Jamie Fisher, and Glen Luce among others.

Before ACT teams can look ahead to the NH Governor’s Cup, they will have to battle in this Sunday’s (May 16) 150 lap event at Oxford Plains Speedway (OPS) in Oxford, ME. The 1/3-mile speedway has become a favorite among drivers because of its multiple grooves and three wide action. Over forty teams are expected to fight for the thirty starting spots. Over $25 grand in purse will be up for grabs along with the second invitation to the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 18. Post time this Sunday, May 16 at OPS is set for 2pm.
