Lee, NH — In one of the most dramatic and exciting events so far in the young 2023 racing season, the American-Canadian Tour put on a barn-burning performance at New Hampshire’s Center of Speed, Lee USA Speedway on Sunday. With the return of the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at the 3/8-mile oval came an interesting group of touring regulars, old friends and young greenhorns. All of them fought each other and the worn-out track itself in an attempt to grasp ACT glory and join a wins list thirty-seven years in the making.
Twenty-four competitors would enter the expansive Lee USA Speedway pit area Sunday morning, many of them facing their third event in just fifteen short days in an extreme stretch of May. After a late driver change, Westbrook, Maine’s Brandon Barker took the wheel of the Sullivan Construction 0NH car to the pole position with current top ACT rookie Andrew Molleur to his outside after both earning +3 in heat race number one.(more…)
