Waterbury, VT – The American Canadian Tour (ACT) will next appear at the Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, ME on Saturday, August 9. The Hudson, New Hampshire native, Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. (Pole) has to be considered a favorite to win the race. In the 2014 ACT Championship standings Pole has a comfortable 56 point lead over second place racer Jimmy Hebert, from Williamstown, VT. He is also winless so far during the 2014 campaign.

 

Pole has compiled an impressive record during the first half of the 2014 season. In the ACT races to date, the 97NH team has three second place finishes, two third place finishes and two fourth place finishes. He also led the Pro All Star Super Late Model event at Beech Ridge and contended for wins in the Star and White Mountain events he entered this year, and also recently won the Lee USA Granite State Pro Stock race. Pole won the 150 lap Beech Ridge ACT event in 2010; he was runner up to Eddie MacDonald from Rowley, MA in 2013.

Polewarczyk, JR. Steals Seacoast 100 Win at Lee USA Speedway

Lee USA Joey Ploe in Victory Lane

Durham, NH- Joey Polewarczyk, JR. used a two-lap shootout to best point leader Larry Gelinas en route to grabbing his second career victory in the Granite State Pro Stock Series (GSPSS).

Newcomer to the GSPSS Bobby Nadeau led the field to green with Marston Mills, MA native Billy Brady to his outside. Nadeau proved he had a fast car, jumping out to a quick lead. The advantage would be wiped away as the first of 6 cautions flew for Russ Hersey’s spin in turn 3 on lap 14. On the restart, Nadeau would drift wide and collect Brady on the backstretch, ending both driver’s nights early. Larry Gelinas would inherit the lead, and be faced with American-Canadian Tour point leader Joey Polewarczyk, JR. to his outside. Gelinas would show his strength, as the pilot of the Watt’s Race Cars Cadillac would pull away from Polewarczyk, JR. until a caution for Steve “Danger” Dickey would negate the lead on lap 49. Gelinas would fend off Polewarczyk, JR. once more, and set a blistering pace as the duo would put multiple cars a lap down.

Joey Polewarczyk, JR to Compete in Seacoast 100

Joey Polewarczyk, JR to Compete in Seacoast 100Walpole, NH- The Granite State Pro Stock Series competitors will have one more car to beat at the Seacoast 100 at Lee USA Speedway this Friday, July 25th.

American-Canadian Tour point leader Joey Polewarczyk, JR has entered the Seacoast 100 in hopes to make it two-for-two with the GSPSS in his career.

The Hudson, NH native has one win under his belt with the GSPSS, a victory at the now closed Canaan Fair Speedway in 2013, and is looking to double that total at Lee. “We are definitely going to try and go two-for-two with the GSPSS,” says Polewarczyk, JR. “I think we will have a good car so we will see what happens. No matter where you race or what you race, it’s always tough to get a win, but we will certainly try our hardest.”

Polewarczyk, JR feels Lee is a great place to race, and that’s why he’s chosen that venue to make his return to the series. “We chose Lee because it’s very close to us and we have had success there in the past. It’s just a fun place to race, plus it’s where my racing career got started.”

Even though the driver of the Pole’s Automotive Ford Fusion has had success in many different forms, he still feels winning the Seacoast 100 will be a challenge. “Frahm is always tough, the same with Gelinas, and all those guys. It’s going to be tough to hold them off. We definitely will have to be on our game to best those guys.”

The Seacoast 100 will take place at Lee USA Speedway on Friday, July 25th. Post time for this event is 7PM, with pit gates opening at 3PM.

Packard Scores Top-10 in ACT International 300

EAST MONTPELIER, Vt – Instead of spending valuable time at Airborne Park Speedway dialing the car in for the American Canadian Tour International 300 race, Emily Packard and her team spent all of Saturday in the race shop repairing the car from the previous night at Devil’s Bowl. The time paid off, as Packard was able to drive her 9x Northstar Fireworks/Packard Fuels car to an overall tenth place finish in a race that saw late model drivers from both ACT and SÉRIE ACT compete for the $25,000 purse.

In practice, Packard and the team focused on getting the car race ready and ensuring that the damages from Friday night were repaired. Taking to the track for the heat, Packard started in the 6th position, and in the 10 laps drove her way to the 4th spot and securing her starting position in the race. This gave her a +2 and earned her a 9th place start in the first segment.

ACT American Canadian Tour

North Woodstock, NH – Winthrop, ME’s Jeff White earned his second career American Canadian Tour win as he led nearly every lap of the 150 lap event at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH on Saturday, June 21. White held off Wayne Helliwell, Jr. through a fierce battle for the majority of the event.

White took the lead from his outside pole starting position at the drop of the green flag. Kyle Welch rode at his back bumper until the second restart of the event came on lap 33. Welch fell back opening the door for Travis Fadden to challenge White at the front. Fadden couldn’t get a run on the outside of White, but continued to look for daylight on the inside. At one point Fadden pushed the issue sending both himself and White sideways through turns one and two.
