Waterbury, VT – For the first time in six years and just the second time in over a decade, the ACT Late Model Tour will return to where it all began, Sanair Super Speedway in St-Pie, Quebec, during the 2012 season. On Saturday, August 11, the ACT Late Model Tour and the Série ACT Castrol will visit the 1.3-kilometer speedway for a 100 lap combination event.
The ACT Late Model Tour held its first ever event on April 26, 1992 when they joined the headlining ACT Pro Stock Tour at Sanair Super Speedway. Norm Andrews of Warren, VT claimed the Late Model win in their 25 lap event before three-time ACT Champion Junior Hanley of Oakville, Ontario earned his sixth career Sanair win in the 150 lap Pro Stock event.
The Late Model Tour has visited the Super Speedway just six times in its 20 seasons to date, with the most recent event in 2006. Ben Rowe of Turner, ME claimed the 2006 ACT Super Series win and a $10,000 paycheck after claiming the win in the three segment 150 lap special event. Eight-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar has two Sanair victories, both in 1993, while Steve Miller and Joey Laquerre complete the list of ACT Late Model winners at Sanair. Vermont Lt. Governor Phil Scott is the only competitor to start all six Sanair ACT Late Model events to date.
