The 2016 American Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced the forty-three (43) teams that will make up the 8th annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational race at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway  (NHMS) Saturday, September 24, 2016.


ACT teams from all six New England states and the Province of Quebec will compete in the 50-mile race on the traditional Fall NASCAR weekend in Loudon, NH. The field will be led by Rowley, Massachusetts’ four-time winner of the event, Eddie MacDonald.


Joining “The Outlaw” will be former winners of the event, including Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., (Hudson, NH), Ray Parent, (Tiverton, RI), and Wayne Helliwell, Jr., (Dover, NH). “Eddie (MacDonald) is always the favorite, but with the handicap system ACT uses to line up the 50-lap dash, things can be unpredictable. Last year it looked like nobody was going to be able to run down Jimmy Hebert of Williamstown, VT who had an early breakout, and a very fast car. It looked like nobody was going to be able to catch him until something broke and put him out of contention. It is a fun race for us, and a lot of fun for race fans to watch,” said three-time Thunder Road International Speedbowl winner Nick Sweet from Barre, VT.


Quebec race fans will see the best of the SERIE ACT competitors at the 8th edition of the Bond Auto Invitational. The largest contingent of Quebec teams, including five (5) SERIE ACT Champions:  Patrick Laperle, (St- Denis, QC), Donald Theetge, (Boischatel, QC), Alex Labbé, (St-Albert, QC), Dany Trepanier, (St-Edouard, QC), and Jean-François Déry, (Quebec City-QC).  “This is the race that the Quebec fans and teams look forward to every year. It is an honor to be invited and able to race in front of the large crowd, and we know there will be many of our very supportive Quebec fans who will be at Loudon (NHMS) in a couple weeks.  I am  very excited, “ said 2015 SERIE ACT Champion Dany Trepanier.


The 8th annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational will be held Saturday, September 24, 2016 as part of the greatest triple header of racing on the NASCAR Championship Chase schedule. The trucks from NASCAR, NASCAR’s Whelan Modified Tour, and the American Canadian Tour will highlight the Saturday before the NASCAR Sprint Cup chase event on Sunday, September 25, 2016.
