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.

The third Gulf Coast Doubleheader weekend for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco is set for July 26 and 27.  The weekend kicks off with a combination event for the Southern Super Series and the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Blizzard Series at Pensacola, Florida’s Five Flags Speedway on Friday, July 26.  The action shifts a few miles down Interstate 10 to Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway on Saturday, July 27, for the combination Southern Super Series and Miller Lite Series 125-lap feature.  Daniel Hemric swept both ends of the Gulf Coast double last month, but who will take the checkered flags home from the Gulf Coast this time around?  Find out July 26 and 27.  For more details, visitwww.southernsuperseries.comwww.5flagsspeedway.com and www.mobilespeedway.net.
