Good job miles!!!!!!! 

9:02
Right now, I’ll be heading off to the pit area to talk to a few drivers for Speed51.comLeftovers from this race later this week on Speed51.com. I’ll be back later on with more complete results and updates if those are available. Stay tuned. 
9:00
Comment From Guest 

where did Randy Potter finish? 

9:00
My guess would be in the low teens, but I don’t know for sure at this point. 
8:59
Comment From Brad 

Good rebound for Pole after a rough start to the night. Doiron, you should be racing ACT man! 

8:58
He almost did. 
8:58
Comment From Brad 

Can Jeffrey Labrecque Jr win???? That would be a huge upset!! 

8:57
Comment From Joey Doiron 

Congrats Miles enjoy the ticket to Loudon, it’s quite the experience! 

8:56
I believe that Wayne Helliwell, Jr. will be credited with sixth and will be followed by Brent Dragon, Joey Pole, Austin Theirault and John Donahue. 
8:56
This is highly unofficial, but Miles Chipman has won over Jeffrey Labrecque, Jr., Brian Hoar, Eric Williams and Joey Laquerre. 
8:55
Miles Chipman has won. 
8:54
Travis Adams almost spun, but saved it. 
8:54
Scott Payea has gone a lap down. 
8:53
We are at lap 144. Everyone is sliding around at this point in the race. 
8:53
Comment From Brad 

It appears they will get the RACE IN within the hour TIME LIMIT!!! Great job ACT!!! 

8:53
Derek Lynch has brushed the wall in turn one, but kept going. 
8:52
Craig Bushey just got very sideways, but saved it. 
8:52
Jeffrey Labrecque, Jr. is closing on leader Miles Chipman. 
8:52
Comment From james 

Thanks for the great race coverage 

8:52
There are now 10 laps to go. 
8:52
Brian Hoar is currently third with Eric Williams in fourth. 
8:51
Jean Paul Cyr is now a lap down. 
8:51
Jeffrey Labrecque, Jr. currently is up to second place. 
8:50
Ricky Rolfe is now a lap down. 
8:50
At lap 133, Miles Chipman has a strong lead and is working lapped traffic. 
8:50
Comment From Brad 

Didn’t Dave Pembroke run that #52 car at one time for Dave Stoney? 

8:50
Yes, he did. I believe that Second Storey Homes is still a sponsor on Pembroke’s car as well. 
8:49
Comment From Guest 

Will you have a complete rundown following th race? 

8:49
If we can get one from the ACT officials, we will post it. So far tonight, there hasn’t been much of a presence as far as rundowns in the press box or anywhere near it though, so we’ll have to wait and see. 
8:48
Comment From jen 

what about quinny and randy p? 

8:48
Quinney Welch is a lap down. Randy Potter is probably around the low teens with his current position. if we get a caution, I can figure that out a little better. 
8:47
We are now at lap 124. 
8:47
Comment From Mike D 

ACT Racers Helliwell, Laquerre, Donahue, Thiereau. Pole and Luce have Ford Blue Oval Crates 

8:47
Comment From Joey Doiron 

Pulling for Miles to get the win for Dave Story in his Dale Shaw Racecar 

8:47
Ah…that is why Chipman has the #52 on it? Dave Storey has a long history in ACT with drivers like Dale Shaw and Buzzie Bezanson driving for him in the past. 
8:46
Comment From jason 

payea starting to charge yet? 

8:46
Scott Payea is not coming through the field like I expected that he might. 
8:46
Comment From Guest 

Is B Dragon making any progress back through the field? 

8:46
Brent Dragon is moving up, but probably not quick enough. He is midpack right now. 
8:45
We are now at lap 115, so anyone who has been saving their equipment knows it is now time to go. 
8:45
Brian Hoar is now under Wayne Helliwell, Jr. in a battle for second place. 
8:44
Miles Chipman has found some extra speed and is pulling away to a bigger lead. 
8:44
Comment From Mike D 

Michaud with a Ford Crate won at Thunder Road – no Ford ACT Tour wins ….. yet 

8:44
We are now at lap 109 according to the scoreboard. Well, actually it only reads “9” because is can only show two digits, but we get the idea. 
8:43
Miles Chipman still leads, but Wayne Helliwell, Jr. is working him pretty hard to take the spot. 
8:42
As far as the Ford goes….I’m not sure. I know that Cris Michaud won a Thunder Road feature with a Ford crate engine and Helliwell has won a few here at Lee with his. I’m pretty sure that nobody has won with one on the ACT Tour though. 
8:41
There is a 60-minute limit on tonight’s race. My understanding is that the town has a curfew on the track of either 11pm or 11:30pm, so the limit is designed to keep things moving along quickly. 
8:40
Comment From Brad 

Wayne Helliwell Jr is in a FORD Crate engine… if he wins will it be the first win in ACT history for a Crate Engine…. Also isn’t there a 60 minute time limit for tonight race @ Lee? Due to Town regulations? 

8:40
We are back to green with Miles Chipman nosing ahead slightly. 
8:40
Austin Theirault is running 11th. 
8:40
Next in line are John Donahue, Joey Laquerre, Joey Pole, Scott Dragon and Scott Payea. 
8:39
Currently, Miles Chipman leads Wayne Helliwell, Brian Hoar, Jeffrey Labrecque, Jr. and Eric Williams. 
8:38
Derek Lynch, Travis Adams, Quinney Welch and Jimmy Linardy have also pitted. 
8:38
Brent Dragon has pitted under caution. 
8:38
Brad Leighton has parked his car in the infield. 
8:37
Comment From Brad 

Is this race on the radio on Speed 51 or another station? 

8:37
No radio here tonight, but maybe we’ll have some more ACT races on Speed 51 Radio in the future. 
8:37
The caution is out for the second time tonight. We will be scored at lap 99 and I think Wayne Helliwell, Jr. will regain the lead. 
8:36
Brent Dragon has spun, just as Miles Chipman took the lead. 
8:36
We are now at the 100-lap mark. 
8:36

8:33

8:31
Brian Hoar is now running in third. 
8:31
Dave Paya has gone down a lap. 
8:31
TJ Watson has gone another lap down. 
8:30

8:30
The leaders are coming up on heavy lapped traffic. 
8:30
Comment From trannyman

8:30
Bradley Babb is near the tail end of the lead lap right now. 
8:29

8:29
We are now halfway. 
8:29

8:28
Yes, Austin made the race and is running in the mid teens right now. 
8:28
We are now at lap 70. 
8:28
Comment From Guest 

Thank you guys for the great coverage!

8:27
Unofficially, Randy Potter is 15th by the way. 
8:26
Wayne Helliwell, Jr. is now solely in the lead again. 
8:26
Comment From Guest 

It sounds like Randy Potter has moved up nicely. Is that the case? 

8:26
I haven’t had much of an eye on him, but he doesn’t look to be exceptionally quick or exceptionally slow. I think they are just trying to make lemonade out of lemons tonight. 
8:25
Miles Chipman and Wayne Helliwell were in a dead heat for the lead on lap 60 at the line. 
8:25
Miles Chipman is looking under Wayne Helliwell, Jr. for the lead.

Joey Laquerre is looking under Travis Adams for the fourth spot. 
8:24
Miles Chipman is gaining on leader Wayne Helliwell, Jr. slightly. 
8:24
Payea looks good, but he also looks smart. I think he is saving something for later on in this 150 lap race. 
8:23
Comment From jason witts 

payea seems to have good position does his car look strong? would like to see him grab a w. 10-4 on the coverage this is great!

Tonight’s winner will receive $2,200 in posted purse money. 
8:02
The field has been expanded to 31 cars. 
8:02

8:02
Bradley Babb, Pete Potvin, Randy Potter, Quinney Welch and Jimmy Linardy have all taken spots at the rear of the feature tonight. 
7:58
Brent Dragon has been happy with his car tonight. He told us earlier tonight that this is a track that he really enjoys coming to as well, so he should be strong tonight. 
7:56
Speaking of announcers, another added bonus of tonight is that the track’s regular divisions are being called by track announcer John Spence, Sr. – who is also the voice of the Modified Racing Series and a longtime personality of Lee USA Speedway. 
7:55
Comment From Valerie Carr 

Is the ACT announcer nearby? Troy should be in the know. 

7:55
No, the press box is in turn one. The announcer is on the frontstretch above one of the grandstands. Troy does know his stuff though. 
7:55
Comment From Guest 

who your pick to win tonight and at 660 

7:54
There are so many good cars in both places, it is hard to predict. But I’m going to go with Wayne Helliwell, Jr. at Lee tonight and Scott Chubbuck at Speedway 660 tomorrow with Austin Theirault as the darkhorse pick in both races. 
7:53
The ACT Late Model teams are currently setting up their pit boxes in the infield area for tonight’s main event. 
7:52
Comment From Brad 

Brad Leighton Made it. Sounds Like Joey Pole made it also… Heard Mike Johnson got Dq’d 

7:52
We will follow up on that. There are no ACT officials anywhere need the press box area, so the flow of information like that is a little slow. 
7:51
Comment From Marc Hibbard 

luce could get it to 

7:51
Possibly, but ACT awards provisionals based on a driver’s status as a full-time tour driver as well as their finish in the heat races. 
7:49
Another driver who had a lot of work to do before tonight’s race was Joey Pole. Two weeks ago, Pole came to run a Friday night race at Lee and got turned into the wall after two hits from Bryan Kruczek.Pole’s car was heavily damaged and needed a front clip. In fact, it was the first bent clip that has needed to be replaced in Pole’s career – which spans back to 2004.

Kruczek was suspended from Lee weekly competition for two events and reportedly from ACT for the rest of the season for his role in the wreck.

7:42
Comment From Norm Desjardins 

got any idea on the provisionals? 

7:42
Comment From Valerie Carr 

Any word on the provisional drivers yet? Wish you guys were coming to Canada tomorrow? 

7:42
Not yet. I think that Bradley Babb is safe for a provisional along with either Pete Potvin or Randy Potter. But there hasn’t been anything official yet. I’m not even going to guess at the Lee provisional. 
7:38
Comment From Guest 

Twisty are you heading to Canada for the pass race 

7:38
No, I plan to be at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME) for their 100 lapper for the Pro Series (Super Late Model) race tomorrow night. There will also be a tribute to Bub Bilodeau at Beech Ridge tomorrow night. Its too bad that both races are on the same night as Speedway 660 is a great place to watch a race. I hope to be up there for the Peterbilt 250 later this year though. 
7:35
Bradley Babb and his Sally Bolduc-owned team thought that they would get a head start on tonight’s race by running last Friday’s Late Model feature here at Lee USA Speedway. They got wrecked though and had a busy week to get ready for tonight. Their racecar got a brand new Dale Shaw clip and was just finished up at 11am this morning. The gates opened here at 2pm, so that was cutting it close! 
7:33
Comment From Valerie Carr 

How do they determine the final three spots? 16 Qualify from heats and 11 from consi’s correct? 

7:33
Three provisionals will be awarded – two to ACT regulars and one to a Lee USA Speedway Late Model driver. 
7:32
Austin Theirault has a busy weekend ahead of him. After running tonight’s ACT Late Model race he will head north towards New Brunswick’s Speedway 660 for tomorrow’s PASS North race. Theirault plans to stop around Auburn, Maine for a few hours of sleep having figured out if he is on the road from there at 7am, he’ll be good to get to Canada in time for the pits to open.Theirault’s Steve Perry-owned racecar has gotten a headstart on its driver. As of 7:30pm tonight, Perry is reportedly at Mile 251 of I-95 in Maine – about 50 miles north of Bangor – with the race hauler.
7:28
We are hearing that Joey Pole has distributor problems in his heat race, but those are now fixed. 
7:27
30 cars will start the race tonight. 
7:26
Comment From Valerie Carr 

How many cars are they starting in tonight’s feature? 

7:26
Also not making it into the feature, before provisionals, from the second consi were Brandon Talon, Mark Hudson, Glen Luce, Dave Farrington and Kyle DeSouza. 
7:25
Bradley Babb finished sixth, but is likely in line for an ACT provisional. 
7:25
John Donahue has won the second consi over Jean Paul Cyr, AJ Begin, Brad Leighton and TJ Watson. Those are the drivers in a transfer position. 
7:24
AJ Begin and Brad Leighton are playing a little bit of bumper tag. 
7:23
Jean Paul Cyr is now in second place. 
7:23
TJ Watson has just motored from seventh to fifth in one straightaway. 
7:23
John Donahue has jumped to a big lead as AJ Begin is throwing a block on Jean Paul Cyr for second place. 
7:22
On the restart, John Donahue has nosed into the lead. 
7:21
One attempted restart has been called off. AJ Begin started a little bit too early. 
7:21
Currently, AJ Begin leads over John Donahue, Jean Paul Cyr, Brandon Talon, Brad Leighton, Bradley Babb, Mark Hudson, Glen Luce, TJ Watson, Dave Farrington and Kyle DeSouza. 
7:20
Strike that, AJ Begin has now been directed into the lead after a scoring review. 
7:20
John Donahue is now being scored as the race leader. 
7:19
All of those cars have driven away. Some may not have gotten much, or any, damage as several cars stopped on the track in time not to hit the blocked track. 
7:19
The caution is out. 
7:19
There has been a big wreck on the backstretch involving Brad Leighton, Bradley Babb, Glen Luce, Dave Farrington, Kyle DeSouza, TJ Watson and Mark Hudson. 
7:18
John Donahue has gone by Jean Paul Cyr for the second position and is now challenging AJ Begin for the lead. 
7:17
AJ Begin currently leads the second consi over Jean Paul Cyr, John Donahue, Brandon Talon and Kyle DeSouza. Those are the drivers in transfer spots currently. 
7:16
The second consi is underway with AJ Begin out front early on. 
7:16
Slight correction – Travis Adams took the final transfer spot in his heat race, so even though his car is wounded, it is already in the show. 
7:15
Comment From Brad 

So the Consi are like the B features. WIll they take a couple PROV? 

7:15
There will be three provisional starters tonight. Two ACT “100%” drivers will get a provisional as will one Lee USA Late Model regular. 
7:14
Not advancing were Pete Potvin, III, Randy Potter, Quinney Welch, Jimmy Linardy, Jeff Zudiema and Chris Riendeau. 
7:14
Mark Lamberton has won the first consi over Mike Johnson, Mark Hayward, Craig Bushey, Jamie Fisher and Joey Pole. Those are the drivers who earned a transfer spot. 
7:12
Correct, there is no last chance race tonight. 
7:12
Comment From Joey Doiron 

I take it there is no Last Chance Race correct? 

7:12
Jamie Fisher and Joey Pole currently hold down the final two transfer spots. 
7:11
Craig Bushey and Mark Hayward are currently battling for the third position. 
7:10
The first consi is underway and Mark Lamberton has gone ahead to the early lead over Mike Johnson. 
7:10
Comment From Brad 

40 is a great car count! 

7:10
Six cars will transfer out of the first consi and five cars will transfer out of the second consi. 
7:09
Comment From Guest 

how many latemodels showed up? 

7:09
The unofficial Late Model car count tonight is 40. 
7:08
Here is a damaged update from the Late Model pits.Joey Pole was lined up for the consi race and ready to go before I got down to the pits, so I don’t know what his mechanical problem was, but it appears to have been fixed.

Randy Potter’s team worked on their front end and got that lined up as well.

Travis Adams was still working on his #03E Late Model. That team had grinders, sawzalls, drills and a welder working. There was heavy damage to the rear of the car. They are thrashing hard to get ready for their consi race.

7:06
Comment From Duke – 51 

We’re at Dixie, not Owosso bud lol…There were seven cars at ORP for practice for the Sunoco National Tour event…partner that with an 80% chance of rain tomorrow, you may not see us at ORP either. 

7:06
Dixie…Owosso….both tracks in Michigan I haven’t been to yet. Oops. 
7:05
PJ Sturgis has won the Small Block Supermodified feature. 
6:46
The Small Block Supermodifieds are up next for their feature, but we are going to skip out on that to check on how things are going in the pit area. We’ll be back shortly. 
6:43
Tim Boyle has just won the Roadrunner feature race. 
6:42
Comment From Marc Hibbard 

How torn up is Randy Potters car?? 

6:42
Comment From Guest 

How torn up is Potter 

6:42
The pit area at lee USA Speedway is actually outside of the track and behind one of the grandstands. It is away from the press box (which is in turn one) and we can’t even see it from here. Word is that the crew hopes to get Randy ready for the B-Main and I will take a walk shortly to see how they are doing with that. The car appeared to have some heavy sheetmetal damage, but whether that was cosmetic or not wasn’t something that I could tell from here. 
6:41
Thanks Duke. When I have a free moment here, I’m looking forward to seeing how things are going at Owosso tonight. Duke and Elgin will also be at the track that should be known as Indianapolis Raceway Park tomorrow night for the Sunoco National Tour race. 
6:40
Comment From Duke – 51 

Twisty, you’re the man! Great job with the ACT boys and girls up there at Lee. Stat Boy and I are up at Dixie Speedway in Birch Run, MI coverin the East Vs. West Shootout tonight on Speed51.com. We hope our fans enjoy Trackside Now coverage at both great tracks! 

6:39
She is not here in a racecar. We have not seen her in the pits so far, but she could be here watching the races. 
6:39
Comment From Valerie Carr 

Hey guys, Is Tracie Bellrose there tonight? 

6:39
Comment From Joey Doiron 

I’m at the hotel in New Brunswick. We decide to head up a day early just in case crossing the board took a while. 

6:39
While Joey Doiron isn’t here tonight and is apparently following along on Speed51.cominstead, a few friendly faces from the PASS North community are here before heading North to Speedway 660 tomorrow.Buster Bean, from the Richard Moody Racing team, is here helping out Brent Dragon tonight. He’s also helped out Trevor Sanborn at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway (ME) in the Pro Series over the past two weeks and Sanborn has won both of those races, so Buster could be a good luck charm.

Ben Rowe’s crew chief Seth Holbrook is here helping out Joey Laquerre.

6:36
Comment From Joey Doiron 

What broke on Joey Pole’s car? 

6:36
We’re not sure. His car just shut off on the backstretch, so my guess would be something electrical. I’ll check and find out shortly though.How come you aren’t here? Lee is just a short drive from Berwick, Maine so I figured you might be here helping out your buddy Bradley Babb tonight before heading out to the PASS North race at Speedway 660 in New Brunswick tomorrow.
6:34

6:28
On the start of the fourth heat race, trouble broke out before the green flag. Dave Farrington, Jr. got turned hard into the frontstretch wall.

There will be four heat races tonight that are 12 laps in lengths and the top four finishers will advance into the feature. We do not have heat race lineups, but will try to fill you in as best as possible with who is running where. 
5:54
The ACT Late Model tour and the weekly Late Models at Lee USA Speedway use the same rules, so ACT regulars Joey Pole, John Donahue, Bradley Babb, James Linardy, Austin Theirault, Glen Luce and Dave Farrington all ran a weekly race or two in the past few weeks to prep for tonight. Those outings weren’t very successful as a few drivers wrecked (more on that later) and only Luce and Linardy scored top ten finishes. There’s no telling how much thicker their notebooks might have gotten though. 
5:49
One driver who is not racing tonight is Eddie MacDonald, who won the latest ACT Late Model tour points event at Oxford Plains Speedway (ME). Lee USA Speedway is a very familiar place for Eddie Mac, as his parents Red and Judy MacDonald own the facility and he literally grew up here. He also started out in the Lee Late Model ranks. But MacDonald’s main focus is on the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East and his team is hard at work prepping for their upcoming event at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Getting their Late Model ready for this race would be a distraction to that program, so MacDonald will sit this one out. He has been spotted here in the stands this afternoon though to watch the racing action. 
5:44
The final practice session, a short tire scuff exercise, has been completed by the ACT Late Models. There were no incidents in that session.
