ACT Making Return to Star Speedway for Summer Kickoff Finale
Waterbury, VT – The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) travels to Epping, NH’s Star Speedway for the first time since 2013 this Saturday, June 29 at 4:30pm. The Dream Ride 150 will certainly be a dream for at least one driver with a $5,000 check awaiting the winner of the Summer Kickoff Series finale.
The month of June has been a big-money month for the ACT Late Model Tour with two $5,000 winner’s prizes already awarded. Lebanon, NH’s Rich Dubeau grabbed five grand for his first ACT win at Quebec’s Autodrome Chaudiere on June 1 while Williamstown, VT’s Jimmy Hebert took the second $5,000 award at Connecticut’s Thompson Speedway on June 15. The duo now sit 1-2 in the point standings, meaning both will surely be a threat for another big score on Saturday.
