Seventeen American-Canadian Tour Flying Tigers made the trek across Route 2 to Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday morning, all looking for one last shot at victory lane in the 2023 season. Teamsters from Barre, Vermont’s Thunder Road and North Woodstock, New Hampshire’s White Mountain Motorsports Park took on a different beast on Saturday as they joined the excited Pro All Stars Series (PASS) 400 weekend.

Sam Caron took a beeline to the front of heat two from shotgun on the field to claim the +7 handicap in the ACT Plus/Minus system to lead the field off to green. Leading through the early stages, White Mountain stand-out Colin Cornell and Thunder Road hot-shoe Jason Pelkey dug on the outside, at some points three-wide, but failed to make a go and slowly slid back. The bottom groove proved dominant for Caron as Jason Woodard made his methodical way to the front using the same line.

Two quick cautions on laps 19 and 28 for spin-and-stops slowed and reset the field, each time seeing Caron choose the bottom and maintain his lead. All the while, Woodard battled first with Kevin Streeter then with Thunder Road champion Kyle Streeter on the restarts, using patience and track-position to motor up to second and begin his attack on Caron.

On lap 57 both Caron and Woodard caught up with a threesome of lapped traffic in the form of ACT announcer Aaron Maynard, top White Mountain rookie Luke Peters and Pelkey. Peters proved the hardest to pass with Woodard using the rookie as a pick to power around Caron and steal the lead away on lap 61. One final caution on lap 67 gave Caron one last shot but time ran out. Jason Woodard took down the ACT Flying Tiger win on PASS 400 weekend at Oxford Plains Speedway followed by Sam Caron and Cameron Ouellette.

The American-Canadian Tour is back in action on Saturday, October 21 for the season-ending Haunted Hundred alongside the Monaco Modified Tri-Track Series at New London-Waterford Speedbowl. The Connecticut seacoast speedbowl will once again host the championship round for the nation’s top Late Model touring series as the season-long chase comes down to just twenty-one points between defending champ D.J. Shaw and young hot-shoe Gabe Brown.
