LOUDON, N.H. – Shining at New Hampshire Motor Speedway is something Eddie MacDonald has become quite familiar with.

And on Saturday the Rowley, Mass. driver took one step closer to being climbing the ladder to the top run of the all-time greatest at the 1.058-mile oval in Loudon.

MacDonald scored victory in the 50-lap Bond Auto ACT Invitational Saturday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

It was MacDonald’s fifth victory over eight events run by the American-Canadian Tour at the track since 2009.

“That was a tough race,” MacDonald said. “There was definitely a few times I thought we were going to have to settle for second or third.”

Jimmy Hebert of Williamstown, Vt. was second and Alex Labbe of St. Albert, Quebec third.

Former New London-Waterford Speedbowl Late Model champion Dillon Moltz of Waterford was fourth and current Whelen Modified Tour regular Woody Pitkat of Stafford was eighth.

It marked the ninth victory overall at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for MacDonald. He has three NASCAR K&N Pro Series East wins and one Pro All Stars Series victory at the track.

Ted Christopher of Plainville and Mike Stefanik of Coventry, R.I. are tied at the top of the track’s all-time win list with 10 victories each. Christopher has five NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour victories at the track and five K&N Pro Series East wins. Stefanik has eight Whelen Modified Tour victories and two K&N Pro Series East wins.

Other local finishers in the ACT Invitational included New London-Waterford Speedbowl regular Ray Christian III of Uncasville (13th), Stafford Speedway regular Joel Monahan of Whately, Mass. (17th), former Stafford Speedway Late Model champion Adam Gray of Belchertown, Mass. (18th) and reigning Thompson Speedway Late Model division champion Brian Tagg of Oxford, Mass. (35th).
