ACTBabb Gets Redemption with Beech Ridge 150 Win

Scarborough, ME – Windham, ME’s Brad Babb got the upper hand in a battle two-time American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Champion Wayne Helliwell Jr. to take his second ACT Tour win of the season in the Beech Ridge 150 at Scarborough, ME’s Beech Ridge Motor Speedway on Saturday, August 8.

The 2012 Beech Ridge Pro Series Champion lost the lead to Helliwell on the race’s final restart on lap 142, but swung to the outside four laps later to regain the top spot. Babb then held off Helliwell and Eddie MacDonald to become the ninth different winner in as many ACT Late Model Tour events at Beech Ridge.

“I knew it was going to be tough on the restart being stuck on the bottom,” Babb said. “Wayne got by, and at that point I thought I was just going to try and hold on for second. But the car came back to me after a lap or two, and once I got to the outside of him, it was as good as it was all day.”

Scarborough, ME – Evan Beaulieu and the 56 Hancock Lumber team were back at their home track of Beech Ridge Motor Speedway this past weekend for the season opener of the Nascar All-American Series, Pro Series division.  After two weeks of practice with some promising results, Beaulieu and the team felt confident in their car going into week one. However, track conditions threw the team a curveball, as Beaulieu fought his way to a 14thplace finishing position in the 24 car field.

“I was really optimistic going into this race given the way the car’s handled the past few weeks at practice,” Beaulieu said of his night, “I thought for sure since we started the race on four new tires we’d be great, but the track tightened up a lot. I’m just ran the outside and drove the thing as hard as I could, and I’m surprised we finished 14th, we will take that and make the right adjustments for next weekends race so we can run near the front.” [Read more…]
