American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Lee USA Speedway officials announced today that the 28th New Hampshire Governor’s Cup has been postponed due to lingering snow from the past winter. The event has been rescheduled to Sunday, April 22 at 1:15pm.

The card of racing will remain the same, with the ACT Late Model Tour going 150 laps in their 33rd season opener. Lee’s R&R Steel Late Model Sportsmen and the Northeast Classic Lites will also be in action.

“We got a lot of snow over the winter, just like much of the region did,” Lee USA promoter Norman Wrenn, III said. “Despite the warmer weather recently, there is still a significant ways to go, and we just don’t think the track can be ready by April 15. No one likes postponements, but given the current conditions, we believe pushing the event back a week will be better for teams and fans.”

The optional practice day for the ACT Late Models and for the track’s weekly divisions has also been rescheduled and will be held Saturday, April 21 at 12:00pm. The pits will open at 8:00am on both Saturday and Sunday while the front gates will open at 9:00am on Sunday.


  1. The ACT tour with only 8 races, most at bullrings is pathetic. It costs allot of money to build a car that you only race 8 times a year.

  2. Race 413 says

    Back in the day when Late Model rules for Stafford Riverside And Thompson we’re alighned, there were differences in the way the chassis was built for Riverside. Stafford and Thompson ran almost identical chassis and you could race both tracks. I’m sure an ACT car that you run at Lee is different from the chassis you’d run at Thompson. Just don’t make sense to build an ACt car, if you live in Connecticut uless your willing to travel allot to race.

  3. The ACT car you would race at Thomspon is exactly the same type of car you would run at the ACT race at Lee. You can also run the same car weekly at Seekonk.(and Waterford if it actually opens)

  4. Thanks JMB for the info
