Glen Luce of Turner, ME is seemingly on the verge of capturing his first-ever American-Canadian Tour Late Model stock car victory. The 20-year racing veteran is in his first full season of ACT competition, and after a steep learning curve early in the year, feels that he’s ready to break into victory lane. He wants to do it at the 30th Bond Auto Labor Day Classic 200 at Barre, VT’s Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl on Sunday, August 31.
“We’re knocking on the door (of the first win); we’ve got a lot of momentum,” said Luce. “We hit on something at Airborne, and we’ve been gaining confidence ever since. We’ve been contenders almost everywhere, and we’ve been shown a lot of respect on and off the track. It feels good.”
Luce finished fourth at Airborne Speedway (NY) in May, then posted finishes of fifth at his home track, Oxford Plains (ME) Speedway in June and sixth at the most recent ACT Late Model Tour event at White Mountain Motorsports Park in New Hampshire last weekend. He currently ranks eighth in the championship point standings with his K&K Excavation/Glen Luce Trucking #7ME Chevrolet. In between his ACT successes, Luce finished as the runner-up to former Daytona 500 winner Kevin Harvick at the prestigious TD Banknorth 250 at Oxford in July.
