ACT Race at Lee USA Rescheduled

(From ACT press release)

LEE, N.H. -- The New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 originally scheduled for April 18 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, N.H., has been rescheduled for Friday, June 11. The event was originally scheduled as the American-Canadian Tour season opener but was postponed due to rain. It becomes the third event of the 2010 ACT season.

ACT teams will have a challenge in racing with Lee regulars who have gained experience in the longer distance ACT races over the years. The Lee contingent will be led by defending champion and current point leader Wayne Helliwell, Jr., of Dover, N.H. Helliwell has already scored two wins in the first two events at Lee this season and is currently leading the Ford Blue Oval Cup Challenge.

ACT favorites include past Lee winners Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., who won the 2008 NH Governor's Cup, and Jean-Paul Cyr, winner of a 2005 Lee event. Defending and six-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar has never won an ACT event at Lee but currently sits atop the ACT point standings. Other contenders include Scott Payea, who has two third place finishes in five career starts at Lee, Brent Dragon, John Donahue, Randy Potter, Jamie Fisher, and Glen Luce among others.

Before ACT teams can look ahead to the NH Governor’s Cup, they will have to battle in Sunday’s 150-lap event at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Me. Over forty teams are expected to fight for the thirty starting spots, over $25,000 in purse, and the second invitation to the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in September. Post time at Oxford is 2:00pm on Sunday, May 16.
