Right now…we have about 30 minutes of daylight left to go 75 laps. Some teams may not plan to set up their car to go the full distance but for a shorter run. Johnny Sauter is thinking maybe 50 laps. Like we noted already, Kyle Busch’s team think it will be a shorter run. Will some make a major swing at their adjustments or not. All can put on two new tires. This re-start could be wild.

We are looking at many different radars and currently we don’t see any other rain coming after this system moves by. All of the series officials are working together to get this event completed today.
2:02
Many are asking if they have lights this year…no they do not. The goal is to get the 150 done by sunset, thus the 6:30pm CST start.
2:02
We just checked in with Boris Jurkovic and he told us they did have to swap the rear end out of his car and put one in he borrowed from Kyle Busch Motorsports. Jurkovic thinks with the rain they will still get two laps of time trials. We will just have to wait and see he said.

The richest race in the history of the American Canadian Tour (ACT) is coming July 20-21…it’s the ACT International 500 at Plattsburgh, New York’s Airborne Speedway. The ACT Invitational is the new “mid-summer classic” for ACT teams when old rivalries between the US and Canada, and new rivalries between veteran favorites and brash new-comers from both the US and Quebec-based ACT organizations are re-established at Airborne.

The International 500 is also featuring a Monza-style twin 50-lap Airborne Modified feature event and a 100-lap non-qualifier “Reserve Feature” for ACT Late Model teams who do not qualify for the main event. Both events will post over $20,000.00 in purse and prize money. The 40 lucky teams who qualify for the “Milk Bowl”-style feature will run three 100-lap inverted races that make up the 300. A minimum of $25,000.00 to the overall winner in the unique event has been posted.

For more details on the ACT International 500, visit www.acttour.com.
