500 Fever: Reason #10



(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.

Acting Governor Takes First Win at Thunder Road in 2013

Acting Governor Takes First Win at Thunder Road in 2013

Moodie, Davis Pick Up Feature Victories

With Governor Peter Shumlin out of town, Lieutenant Governor Phil Scott took the first victory for a Vermont Acting Governor in state history in the 50-lap Late Model Feature at Barre’s Thunder Road on Thursday night, June 20, adding his 28th win to his resume as the track’s all time winningest driver.  A pair of Milton, VT competitors, Scott Payea and Jean-Paul Cyr, completed the podium. 

Barre’s own Jim Morris led the early part of the race, holding off attacks from Scott and pole-sitter Blair Bessett until a series of wild cautions mid-race sent cars spinning all over the track.  Morris would withstand several restarts before Scott took over, powering to the victory ahead of a mad dash for second place.  Payea and Cyr made it ahead of the fray to pick up second and third.  Cyr was followed by co-point leader Dave Pembroke in fourth, and “Hurricane” Jamie Fisher in the top five.
