The ACT Banquet of Champions has come and gone, and the 2004 racing season is officially over. The Champions and Top 10 racers from Thunder Road and Airborne Raceway's weekly divisions were honored, as were Jean-Paul Cyr and the rest of the ACT Late Model Tour's Top 10. Cyr delivered his fourth career championship speech and picked up a check for $10,000 as a lovely parting gift. Thunder Road Champions Cris Michaud of Williamstown, VT (Late Model), Reno Gervais of Island Pond, VT (NAPA Tiger Sportsman, pictured left), Joe Small of Milton, VT (Allen Lumber Street Stock), and Ron Gabaree of Barre, VT (PowerShift Junkyard Warrior), and Airborne Champions Bill Sawyer of Milton, VT (Tiger Sportsman), Richie Turner of Fairfax, VT (Renegade), and Ed Doner of Clintonville, NY (Warrior) each accepted their awards, cut a few jokes, and discussed their plans for 2005. Perhaps to the chagrin of their competitors, almost all plan on defending their titles. The exception, of course, is Sawyer, who will race as a rookie on the ACT Late Model Tour.
