Ray Christian III wins the Pro Stock portion of the Star Classic in the Vynorius Pile Driving 100
It was all fenders all the time on opening night of the 54th annual Star Classic and Ray Christian III was the man to beat. Every time the Granite State Pro Stock Series was on the track it was the black 93 at the top of the charts and leading the way to the checkers. Joey Doiron did all he could but wound up a disappointing second and Jimmy Renfrew, Jr. came up two spots short from another win at his home track.

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.
