Barre, VT – St-Denis, Quebec’s Patrick Laperle held off a late charging Phil Scott to claim the ACT Late Model Tour win in the 32nd running of the Bond Auto Labor Day Classic at Thunder Road International Speedbowl in Barre, VT on Sunday, September 5. Laperle led the final 14 laps of the 200 lap event after getting around Dave Pembroke.

Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. and current ACT Late Model Tour point leader Brian Hoar battled for the first 160 laps of the event. They swapped the lead eight times amongst themselves before Pembroke joined the mix with fresher tires on lap 160. Pembroke would hold the lead until lap 187 when Laperle took over also on fresher tires.

Phil Scott ran in the top three for the majority of the event until pitting for tires on a lap 167 caution. He proceed to slice through the field followed closely by Hoar and Randy Potter who also pitted on lap 167 with the same strategy.

Scott came up just a car length short of getting by Laperle and had to settle for second. Pembroke took third followed by John Donahue and Scott Payea in the top five. Hoar worked his way up to sixth followed by Potter, Polewarczyk, Joey Becker and Jean-Paul Cyr rounding out the top ten.

The 200 lap event was completed in one hour and seventeen minutes with just seven cautions including two for brief rain showers. Four different leaders swapped the lead a total of 12 times. A total of 42 cars attempted to qualify for the 30 car field.

Peacham’s Tony Rossi earned his second career Bond Auto Tiger Sportsmen win in the special two segment Monza style event. The Tigers ran a 35 lap segment on Saturday and a 50 lap segment on Sunday with the overall results using the points earned in the two events. Mike Ziter and Jimmy Hebert completed the podium while Jason Corliss and Brendan Moodie rounded out the top five.

The Allen Lumber Street Stocks also ran a two segment Monza event. Randolph’s Eric Johnson claimed the win followed by Jean Leblanc, Ron Gabaree, Thomas Placey and Scott Weston completing the top five.

The Junkyard Warriors Monza event included three segments. Current point leader Ken Christman of Cabot picked up his 11th win of the season. Brock Parrott and Matt Leblanc earned podium finishes.
