Waterbury, VT – White Mountain Motorsport Park (WMMP) will open the Bond/Wix Tiger Tour this Saturday, June 05, 2010. The popular Bond Tiger Sportsman cars from throughout the region will begin their championship run in the first of four events for the 2010 race season.
“White Mountain was a natural for us to begin the 2010 campaign,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour, (ACT), which sanctions the Bond Auto Tiger Sportsman Division. “WMMP took a major step to bring the ACT rules for the Tiger Sportsman division to the track this season, and we want to do whatever we can to try and help get this division in a growth trend at WMMP. We have encouraged the Thunder Road Tiger teams to visit WMMP whenever they can in 2010.”
All tour events will be 100 laps. The other scheduled events that will be held during the season include: Thunder Road on Thursday, July 01, Canaan Fair Speedway on Saturdya, August 21, and the finale will be held at the new Riverside Speedway in Groveton, NH on Saturday, October 9th.
Seven-time ACT Late Model Champion Jean-Paul Cyr has assembled a group that will oversee the Bond/Wix Tiger Tour on behalf of ACT. “I asked Jean if he had any interest in helping out this summer as we also have so many races with the ACT US Tour, the Series Castrol Edge, and Thunder Road,” continued Curley. “He certainly has plenty of racing experience and he has brought some of his Late Model team to help with long-time members Randy Ploof and Bruce King joining him on the Bond/Wix Tiger Tour”.
The opening event is expected to draw 30 Tiger teams to ‘The Mountain’. Leading the pack will be Brendan Moodie from Wolcott, VT who is coming off his Memorial Day win at Thunder Road. Defending Tiger Tour Champion Shawn Duquette from Morrisonville, NY will make the long haul to the ¼ mile picturesque oval in defense of his 2009 title. Former Thunder Road Champions Shawn Fleury and Jimmy Hebert have both entered the White Mountain event. Late Model drivers Chip Grenier and Dave Pembroke, both graduates of the Tiger Division will also be competing at White Mountain this Saturday.
Pit gates open at noon, practice starts at 2:30 and post time is 5:00 this Saturday, June 05, 2010. For more information contact WMMP at www.whitemtnmotorsports.com or call (603) 745-6727.
