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.

TJ Reaid talked to us about the frustration of not winning this race here a year ago. He compared it to that of the Snowball Derby where he was taken out while leading. If Reaid has his way he’ll win Saturday and then again at the Snowball Derby in December.
