TOP 10 REASONS TO BE EXCITED ABOUT THE ACT INTERNATIONAL‘’500”
(over the next four weeks leading up to the ‘500’ weekend there will be two or three ‘top ten’ reasons to be excited about this event---check back often over the next few weeks and you too will catch the ‘500 Fever’ ----)
-The ACT INTERNATIONAL ‘500’ was introduced as a result of the loss for ACT Late Models of one of the nation’s greatest short track events, the Oxford 250.
[Think of it this way, you have three kids, two toddlers and a pre-teen. If Christmas was eliminated from your family’s holiday schedule, more than likely you would find something of equal excitement and value to replace it! Damn the Grinch who tries to steal Christmas]
That is it!! Plain and simple! A special event to replace the loss of the ‘250’ for the ACT legal Late Model teams throughout the Northeast states, Quebec and Ontario.
When the 70-100 ACT legal Late Model teams who supported the ‘250’ for the past five years learned that they would no longer have that event to look forward to, that was the genesis of having a big race for those ACT teams who have supported ACT Late Model racing over the past decade and a half.
