ACT to “Kickoff” Next Summer with Trio of Big-Money Shows

Waterbury, VT – Some extra cash will be on the line for the stars of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) next June. ACT officials have announced the 2019 Summer Kickoff Series, a trifecta of $5,000-to-win events that will be held throughout the Northeast.

The three-race mini-series continues the tradition of the 2018 Summer Showdown Series, which also featured a trio of big-money events. This time, however, all three events will be held in a four-week span, meaning the month of June will be a lucrative one for at least one ACT-type Late Model racer.

With four laps left in the final race of the season to determine the American Canadian Tour Champion at Thompson’s World Series of Racing, Eddie Mac had an opportunity to not only win the ACT 75 lap event but also win a championship that appeared improbable at best prior to the race trailing Payea by 25 points.
