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.
