Thunder Road SpeedBowl
ACTion News 4/18/05
Last weekend was a busy one for ACT teams – between the Berlin Mall car show and two New Hampshire race tracks holding open test days, over 30 teams from all four ACT/Thunder Road divisions were in action. Six beautiful cars from the ACT Late Model, NAPA Tiger Sportsman, and Allen Lumber Street Stock divisions were joined at the Berlin Mall by a couple of PowerShift Junkyard Warriors. The Late Model of Jerry Lesage, Tiger Sportsmen Tom Therrien, Scott Coburn (right), and Travis Paquet, and Street Stock rookies Kyle Tatro and Ron Gabaree had their fine looking machines on display, with a very nice spectrum of colors among them. And to the credit of Warrior guys James Dopp and Dave LaFleche, at least the leftover wrinkles in their cars were covered with shiny new paint! Special thanks goes to each of those drivers for helping the show a success, and thanks also to Cris Michaud, Nick Sweet, Justin Hart, and Joe Small for helping out with Sunday’s autograph session.

The ACT Late Model Tour season opens in just a couple of weeks (Sunday, April 24) with the Seacoast Late Model Challenge 100 at Lee USA Speedway, we know that. The rivalries established last year are beginning to heat up again, and the radical new qualifying format, splitting ACT regulars from Lee USA regulars has everyone buzzing. If you buy into the internet message board trash-talking, you’d think this is going to be an all-out war. Whether a war breaks out or not remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure – we’ll have a HUGE number of troops on the front line. To date, ACT has received 41 official entries. Lee USA General Manager Peter Watson expects as many as 25 Lee USA regulars to attend the big dance. We’re not claiming to be math whizzes here, but it looks like we could have more than 60 cars in the pits!
