Defending New England Short Track Showdown champion Eddie MacDonald has been preparing for the 50 lap event coming up on Sunday, June 24th. “We’ve prepared the car to have our crate motor in it, and it should be interesting to see how the field plays out” MacDonald said. “I believe this rules package will put on a great show for the fans.” A multi-time winner at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, this will be MacDonalds only appearance at the Magic Mile in 2018. “This race with the Granite State Pro Stock Series presented by Springfield Buick GMC will be the only chance we’ll have to run at New Hampshire Motor Speedway this year so, we are really looking forward to it.”

LOUDON, NH – Woody Pitkat drove the Summit Ice No. 07MA to victory in a rough and ragged ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway Saturday.
The race was called with 18 of 50 scheduled laps completed as daylight waned. Two false restarts attempting to complete lap 19, with Pitkat and runner-up Jimmy Hebert on the front row, sealed the deal.
Multiple accidents and long clean-up and line-up times prolonged the race for nearly two hours.
