ACT/PASS Confirm Dates For Inaugural Northeast Classic At NHMS; Open Modified Race On Card


(Press Release from American-Canadian Tour)


2-Day Event to be Held Weekend of April 16-18

American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have confirmed the dates for the inaugural Northeast Classic at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The long-awaited event will be held on the weekend of April 16-18, 2021.

A two-day schedule is planned with open practice on day one and qualifying/features on day two. Whether the event has a Friday-Saturday or Saturday-Sunday schedule will be determined over the winter.

The Northeast Classic was originally scheduled to debut in April 2020 before ultimately being cancelled due to the outbreak of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The event was highly-anticipated throughout the region, and this coming April, the first running will finally be held on the “Magic Mile”.

“We can’t wait to finally get the Northeast Classic off the ground,” PASS owner Tom Mayberry said. “The buzz leading up to the expected debut last April was incredible. Unfortunately, world circumstances didn’t allow it happen, much to everyone’s disappointment. With another year to look forward to it, we think the inaugural Classic will be just as big if not bigger than it would have been.”

The event schedule for 2021 is expected to be much the same as what was planned for 2020. A five-division card includes the PASS North Super Late Models, ACT Late Model Tour, a Tour-Type Modified Open, an 8-Cylinder Street Stock Open, and the North East Mini Stock Tour.

Rules, entry forms, and other Northeast Classic information will be released over the coming months. ACT and PASS both expect to finalize their full 2021 schedules soon.

  1. Do you see Act/Pass really bucking the trend and setting up its own modified series? Sure looks like it’s trending that way.

  2. “Open” Modifieds at New Hampshire. But wait, some have said that only NWMT Modifieds would race at New Hampshire. Well, here it is in black and white, guess the big bad tour just got a little smaller. Teamed up with both ACT and PASS late models, and street and mini stocks, should be a good 2 day show.

  3. wmass01013 says

    I HAVE to ask Rob p, who said ONLY WMT would run at MHMS, the MRS has been there a few times already!!

  4. I was really looking forward to this year when covid happened, really hoping that the numbers are good enough in the spring to allow it to happen. I know that for this year they were planning heat races for all the divisions, sounded like an amazing idea to me.

  5. This was a 2020 event that got rescheduled for 2021 many months ago. This is old news.

    There are not enough cars and crews to field all these opens plus all the tours from April to October. Then there are the fans. Who can hit 2 or 3 races every week?? At some point, there is too much. We are almost there.

  6. I hope this all works out.

    The latest news is that COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the USA.

    Wear a mask, please.

  7. Wmass, forgot which thread I read it in. It was recent. I remember it, because I thought the MRS had run there, but couldn’t be sure.
    Basically I worded it that way because I’m tired of all the people who think WMT is gods gift to modified racing. The other series and tracks that run open modifieds all have some very talented drivers, as well as some great car owners who field top shelf equipment. Likewise the WMT has some drivers and teams that are no where near competitive. All this speaks to the division in this country. I respect every modified driver out there. They stay in to these 600+ HP beasts and race to put on a show for us, the fans. Each and every one of them deserves our respect. You may not like them, but at least respect them.

  8. BREAKING: Donald Trump says doctors and nurses are getting paid to fake Covid deaths. The hospitals are not full, that’s a democratic hoax, in fact emergency rooms are empty.
    After my car accident last Wednesday night, I was brought to Bay State medical center in Springfield MA. For those of you who don’t know, Bay State is probably the biggest health group in Massachusetts, with hospitals and medical centers throughout western and central Mass.Springfields hospital is their base hospital and has a state of the art trauma unit. When I got there I was brought to the 50 bed pediatric unit, not the trauma unit. I was brought there because the general emergency rooms and trauma unit were full up with Covid patients. I was put on a gurney in the hallway because that unit was overfilled. A staff nurse told me the other 2 units and trauma center were so full they were lining gurney’s and beds up on both sides of the hallway.
    Trump’s words infuriated me. The truly sad part is that all of those stupid people packed into that rallies most likely believed him. His words are toxic. His rhetoric is putting lives in danger, yet he doesn’t care. How many more people will this idiots disinformation kill?

  9. Take it easy on yourself Rob.p

  10. Man and boy what’s brewing this schedule season is something. In a way poetically consistent with the turmoil that the plague has wrought and the election, that may the saints be praised, is only a few days away. Hopefully it will be resounding on one side or the other to avoid all the nasty things that have been predicted in a nail biter. Photo finishes are the ideal in racing but not in elections so much and this one especially. I cast my vote a couple weeks ago and am gliden with Biden/Harris. I wish all the Trump/Pence supporters of which there are many in RaceDayCT nation the best of luck as the slug fest ends and the final voting commences. But not too much luck.
    With regard to the modified racing schedule JD’s comment is perplexing. It is true that between the Stafford courting of Tri Track and this ACT/Pass group there are more questions now about next racing season then in most years. The way it worked was the NWMT releases their schedule having completed all negotiations with tracks on the schedule then everything else falls in place behind it. Representing the NWMT but also forming the starting point for each participating track that they can fill in as they see fit. Like it or don’t it represented order. What we have now to this fan appears to be a couple guys introducing chaos. Nonetheless how can one predict too many events, exhausted teams and fans when no firm schedules have been released.
    Personally I like order. The way it was had a certain logic. I’d like to think all the players in this game are communicating with each other and have it mostly figured out That we are running around like a bunch of chickens with our heads cut off guessing at things with only kernels of actual knowledge.
    One thing is pretty much a fact. Whether it’s the Speedbowl blow up in 2017, Stafford introducing open races, Thompson cutting pay outs with a reduced schedule or anything really big most of the commentary ends up being wrong.
    The emphasis to open racing started years ago and continues to gain momentum. The only difference here and it’s a big one is the positioning of the NWMT in the pecking order. Is their seat at the head of the table being moved to the side or is this the mere appearance of something different that in the end will prove to be a twist on the usual?

  11. Rob P, if you are upset about Trump today don’t turn your TV on Tuesday night. 4 more yrs is nothing. It’s a cup of coffee really. I do enjoy the fact that anytime there is an ounce of positive racing news you are right there to stomp on it with negativity.

    You guys act like Nascar isn’t aware of all of this. They have been weekly contact with ACT/PASS since May at least. These same guys are doing the schedule for several other tracks. Just have to wait and see. No doubt, there will be conflicts now. Releasing your schedule last has its advantages.

  12. If you can take the partisanship out of the election it’s basically a race to be enjoyed on some level.
    The sage of the North country says another four years of Trump with a cock sure attitude and a twinkle in his eye no doubt. Stick a pin in that one for sure. Not to bore anyone with the data it’s clear this is an uphill struggle for Trump. I can say that if he were to pull it off it would make 2016 pale in comparison to 2020. From betting odds to the most sophisticated analytics you could just throw it all out. One miss is fine but if you reconfigure your algorithms to adjust for what you missed and are still wrong then really you’re wasting your time. Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight comes to mind as being the furthest out on a limb on this one.
    There will be a winner but the country will still be just as divided as we are now regardless of the result.
    I give credit to New Hampshire. Essentially if America were a country of white people Trump would win and it wouldn’t even be close. If you believe the polling Biden is winning the state by 10% with a minority population of only 10%. Proving that New Hampshire is indeed one of the very few states that continues to defy being categorized by demographics and does whatever the hell they think is right at the time. Unless the polling is off by a monumental number.
    Another observation I’m putting a pin in is that the ACT/Pass group is in weekly conversations with NASCAR. Making what appears to be line jumping in the schedule development protocol not the case at all. A very specific detail that one would think no fan could know but I certainly hope is true.
    I give you credit JD for marching into the jaws of uncertain times at the track and at the polling place with bold predictions that defy all the odds. We’ll see how you do starting next week.
