Lee, Thunder Road Swap May Dates on ACT Schedule

Thunder Road Opener Now Set for May 2

American Canadian Tour

Waterbury, VT – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials have announced an update to the 2021 ACT Late Model Tour schedule. The May 2021 events at New Hampshire’s Lee USA Speedway and Barre, VT’s Thunder Road have switched places to better accommodate the tracks.

The 23rd Community Bank N.A. 150 at Thunder Road is now slated for Sunday, May 2. The event is the opener for Thunder Road’s 62nd season of competition. An optional practice day is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 1.

The Lee USA 150 will be a one-day show on Sunday, May 16. It is part of an event that includes the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds. An 8-cylinder Street Stock Open has also been added to the Lee USA card. More information on both the Lee and Thunder Road events will be available closer to the start of the season.

“After speaking with Lee USA officials, we decided this was the best option for everyone,” ACT and Thunder Road managing partner Cris Michaud said. “They wanted the doubleheader to be a little later in the month, and it actually works out well for us, since teams that run both Thunder Road and White Mountain Motorsports Park will have a less hectic start to the year. We look forward to seeing everyone at both Thunder Road and Lee in a few months.”

The 2021 ACT Late Model Tour season opens at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 17 with the inaugural Northeast Classic. The event also features the PASS Super Late Models, a Tour-Type Modified Open, the North East Mini Stock Tour, an 8-cylinder Street Stock Open, and the Exit Realty Pro Truck Challenge. It kicks off a 12-event schedule that takes the Tour to nine different tracks throughout New England and Quebec.
