ACT Invitational: T.J. Watson Becomes Latest Qualifier

WISCASSET, Me. -- T.J. Watson of Cundy's Harbor, Me. -- a lobster fisherman by day, race car driver by night -- became the 14th different driver to win at qualifying event for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday.

Watson won the Late Model half of the Center of Speed 300 at Wiscasset (Me.) Raceway, which included a $5,000 winner's purse, and has earned an invitation to compete at the Loudon, N.H. superspeedway next month.

Watson's Wiscasset-legal Late Model does not comply with the ACT rulebook, and Watson has reached an agreement to drive a car owned by Sally Graves of New Hampshire. Graves' car has competed in ACT Late Model Tour events this season with drivers Dale and Andy Shaw.
