Lee, NH – The American Canadian Tour Late Models hit the track for the first time in 2013 with an optional practice at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH. Thirty-six (36) cars took advantage of the practice day in preparation for tomorrow’s (Sunday, April 14) NH Governor’s Cup 150 season opener.
Former ACT champions dominated the top of the speed charts in each of the four practice sessions. Eight-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar of Williston, VT led one of the four sessions while seven-time ACT Champion Jean-Paul Cyr of Milton, VT topped the final two. Multi-time Lee USA track champion and defending ACT Champion Wayne Helliwell, Jr. of Dover, NH held down the second fastest spot in each of the four sessions.
Luke Hinkley, Eric Chase, Ray Parent, Ben Lynch, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Chip Grenier, and Travis Stearns all spent time near the top of the speed charts.
Boischatel, Quebec’s Donald Theetge and Alex Labbe of St-Albert, Quebec represented the Série ACT Castrol. A brake failure on the Theetge automobile sent him hard into the turn 1 and 2 wall during the second practice. Theetge and his team worked hard to make the necessary repairs just in time for the final session of the day and they will be ready for the event tomorrow.
ACT teams from seven different states and provinces will be on hand for the running of tomorrow’s NH Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee USA Speedway. Post time is scheduled for 1:15pm. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter @ACTTour for updates.
