Waterbury, VT – American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model competitors will once again have big potential prizes waiting for them at the end of the 2016 season. More than $100,000 in point fund money will be up for grabs between the ACT Late Model Tour, Série ACT, and Barre, VT’s Thunder Road. Both the ACT Late Model Tour and Série ACT Champions will receive $10,000, with $7,500 going to the Thunder Road Late Model Champion.
In addition, the top-15 finishers in the final 2016 standings for both the ACT Late Model Tour and Série ACT are slated to receive a payout. Drivers or registered car owners must attend all events on either series to be eligible for any point fund payout.
The Bond Auto New Champions program will return for eligible ACT Late Model Tour and Série ACT drivers. Competitors with one or fewer ACT-sanctioned win entering the 2016 season may be eligible. The top five drivers in the final New Champions standings will receive a point fund payout, with $2,000 going to the top driver. Any driver who earns their first ACT win in 2016 will again earn an additional $500 “Breakout Award”.
The top rookie in each ACT series will receive $1,000, with payouts for the top five rookies. ACT Late Model Tour drivers will also compete for the season-long “Outstanding Star” Three Star Award. The driver who earns the most Star awards throughout the season will receive a $1,000 bonus. If there is a tie for most Star awards, these drivers will split the point fund money evenly.
Full-season entries are already arriving for the 2016 ACT season. The ACT Late Model Tour and Série ACT will visit a combined 15 tracks throughout the northeast United States and Quebec. Teams who file a full season entry for either series by March 16 will receive a discount on their entry fee.
