ACTion News 1/31/05
While much has been said about the interest shown in the ACT Late Model Tour for 2005, the NAPA Tiger Sportsman division and the new Tiger Tour seem to be moving – nay, rocketing! – forward, Joey Laquerre’s entrance notwithstanding. Over forty licenses have been sold to date, and we’re hearing more rumors than a high school freshman at their first big dance. Should things pan out as told to us by folks allegedly “in the know”, Laquerre will be one of at least four veterans returning to the Sportsman class with more than one championship under their racing belts. We won’t say anything officially until it becomes official of course, but it sure does look like the Sportsmen are in for a wild season – their 24th consecutive year of racing on the Barre high banks!
