American-Canadian Tour Releases 2021 Schedule

(Press Release from American-Canadian Tour)

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced the 2021 schedule of events for the ACT Late Model Tour. Twelve point-counting events are slated for the Tour’s 30th season across nine tracks throughout New England and Quebec.

ACT will also sanction multiple big-money, non-point events throughout 2021. Highlights of the schedule includes six sanctioned events that pay at least $5,000 to win, six doubleheader events with the Pro All Stars Series (PASS), long-awaited returns to several tracks throughout the Northeast, and the renewal of one of ACT’s oldest events.

In announcing the schedule, ACT stressed that it is subject to change based on the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Events could be dropped, added, or moved depending on how the situation evolves regionally and nationally over the coming months.

The 2021 ACT season begins at Loudon’s New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) with the inaugural Northeast Classic. A practice day is scheduled for Friday, April 16 with qualifying and a $5,000-to-win feature on Saturday, April 17. The event was originally supposed to debut in 2020 before getting pushed back a year due to the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak.

After a week off, the ACT Late Model Tour heads to New Hampshire’s Lee USA Speedway on Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2. The 150-lap event comes following a two-year ACT hiatus from the track. The PASS Super Late Models are also on the card at both NHMS and Lee.

On Sunday, May 16, ACT rolls into Barre, VT’s Thunder Road Speedbowl for the 23rd Community Bank N.A. 150. The Tour then has three weeks off before traveling to N. Woodstock, NH’s White Mountain Motorsports Park for the 46th Spring Green on Saturday, June 12. Thunder Road and White Mountain are the only tracks booked to host multiple point-counting ACT events in 2021.

The next two events are ACT/PASS doubleheaders at New Hampshire tracks that last held an ACT event more than a decade ago. Sunday, June 20 will see the ACT Tour visit Hudson Speedway. The only previous Tour visit was a 2001 event won by Pete Fecteau. On Sunday, July 4, ACT journeys to Winchester, NH’s Monadnock Speedway for the Independence Day 150. The last ACT trip there was a 2003 event won by Todd Stone.

ACT then has three straight big-money showdowns on the calendar. Saturday, July 24 is the $5,000-to-win Claude Leclerc 150 at Vallée-Jct., QC’s Autodrome Chaudiere. The following Saturday, July 31 is the third annual $10,000-to-win Midsummer Classic 250 at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Saturday, August 7 is the ACT-sanctioned C$10,000-to-win Bacon Bowl 200 at Autodrome Chaudiere. Although the Bacon Bowl is a non-point event, officials are discussing potential bonus programs for Tour teams that make the trip.

Following a break, ACT makes its lone 2021 stop at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 28 as part of the “Night Before the Oxford 250” program. A second trip to Thunder Road is in store the following Sunday, September 5 for the 43rd Labor Day Classic.

To conclude the month of September, ACT is bringing back one of its most storied traditions. On Saturday, September 25, White Mountain Motorsports Park will host the Fall Foliage 200 with a $5,000 winner’s purse. It becomes the fifth different home track for the event, which was last contested in 2016 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.

The non-point, $10,000-to-win 59th Vermont Milk Bowl at Thunder Road is next on the card. ACT then crowns its 2020 champion at Masschusetts’ Seekonk Speedway on Saturday, October 23. The PASS Super Late Models and Tri-Track Open Modified Series are also on the Seekonk card with a trio of “Haunted 100” features.

  1. No Thompson is a bit surprising.

  2. I agree no Thompson is a surprise. Also Star and Riverside speedway arent on the schedule both were on the 2020 schedule. Honestly not sure if they were run. Pretty sure Star was cancelled as they were supposed to do a double header with PASS. Nice to see Monadnock on the schedule. I dont remember ACT ever running there. Certainly not in recent years.

  3. Loving all the New Hampshire tracks on the schedule, especially Monadnock.

  4. Glad to see ACT bringing back new and old to the schedule. The ACT Late Model Tour hasn’t been to Hudson or Monadnock since it was the ACT Dodge Tour, it’ll be fun to see how they’ll roll around those unique raceways once again. Going back to Lee is pretty special too. Looks like WMMP will be the place to race this year; If you don’t have a handle there it seems the championship will be out of your grasp!

  5. Surprised as well, no Thompson, especially given they’re one of the partners running the place, and they run ACT late models as a weekly division. Don’t know about the Canadian tracks, but looks like a bullring series.

  6. It seems ACT and PASS are keeping the door cars mostly north and the Modifieds mostly south at Thompson, with southern NH being the blending area for fenders and open wheel. Works for me!

  7. If you step back and look at the whole country, late model racing is more popular than modified racing, especially in the Southeast.
    There are allot of big money, prestigious Late Model races, across multiple sanctioning bodies. Some of these guys run 3-4 nights each week, and midweek races are a normal thing.
    Now look at the Northeast, and that’s what’s starting to happen with modified racing. More open races with multiple sanctioning bodies or promoters, and the money is starting to get better. It’s really a great thing for modified racing.

  8. Rob P. I agree. This Modified guys have to be open to racing a bit more, and hopefully get larger fields. When the fields grow, so will the purses. I find it almost sinful what these guys are running for each day. SK’s at Stafford are running for $1500 to win, and I just saw an old Racing Paper and Charlie J won a feature at Freeport Stadium on LI back in 1978, and he won $1200 to win the race!!!! Crazy what these guys are running for.

  9. ACT TOUR not racing a point race at THOMPSON makes ZERO SENSE to me ?????? What are you thinking ???? YOU run the track and you don’t PROMOTE YOUR OWN PRODUCT ??????? I am very very grateful that you guys basically saved Thompson last year !!!! yes we are, but you should have at least two PASS races and Two ACT races at Thompson. Those would be great races to watch on the high banks as in the past. What are you doing???
