Waterbury, VT – The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) announced today that ACT will return to the 1.058-mile speedway in 2016 for the 8th Annual Bond Auto Parts ACT Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 24. The 50-lap event has been a staple of the ACT schedule since its inaugural running in 2009.

 

“It’s definitely a race that I love going to,” 2014 Invitational winner Wayne Helliwell, Jr. said. “It brings a different type of racing that we don’t get to do at any other track. Running three-, four-, and sometimes five-wide, as much as it’s nerve-wracking, is also really enjoyable. Overall, it’s just a great experience – especially being mixed in with some of the Cup drivers and the Modified Tour guys. It’s a big event for the crew, the family, and the sponsors, and it’s something we really look forward to every year.”

Joey Logano, driver of the No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion, is the defending champion of this weekend’s race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway and a repeat win would guarantee advancement into the Contender’s Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. He visited the infield media center earlier today and talked about a number of topics.

JOEY LOGANO – No. 22 Shell/Pennzoil Ford Fusion – HOW IS YOUR CONFIDENCE GOING INTO THIS WEEKEND? “I feel pretty good about it. This has been a good race track for us the last couple of years. Obviously, this is my home track so I talk about that a lot when I come up here, but I really want to win here again. I feel like we’re in good position after last week. We had a solid finish and that positioned ourselves pretty good to race fairly aggressive through this race and try to get a win like we did last year.”

KYLE BUSCH – Winning Pedigree at NHMS

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (Sept. 23, 2015) – It was only the first race of the 10-race run to decide the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series champion, but Kyle Busch and his PEDIGREE® team started NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship with a solid effort.

The driver of the No. 18 PEDIGREE® Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) brought home a ninth-place finish Sunday at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Illinois, leading 121 laps and enabling the No. 18 team to come out of the gates with a solid finish to start the Chase just four points out of the lead. In the second year of NASCAR’s current playoff format, it appears consistency is the formula for advancing through the first two rounds, while winning will be the key once the championship chase comes down to the final six races.
