ACT Invitational: 28 Teams on Invite List for NHMS Event

LOUDON, N.H. -- Six names have been added to the list of drivers invited to the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway later this month.

ACT released 22 names last week following a two-day "Test & Tune" session at the 1.058-mile superspeedway that were invited to compete at the race. On Tuesday, Maine drivers Ricky Rolfe, Shawn Martin, and Joey Doiron, Connecticut racer Timmy Jordan, and Vermonters Jamie Fisher and Eric Chase were added to the list.

Fisher, of Shelburne, is a former track champion at Thunder Road Int'l Speedbowl in Barre, and both he and Milton driver Chase are veteran competitors there and on the ACT Late Model Tour. Chase also made his NHMS debut in a NASCAR Camping World Series East event in June.
