ACT Heading To Florida In February


WATERBURY, Vt. — The American-Canadian Tour for late models is heading South.

Series officials have reached an agreement with New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., to bring the series to the track during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing Feb. 13-14.

The series will hold two 100-lap events for ACT teams, one Feb. 13 and another Feb. 14.

“We mentioned to our teams at the end of this past season about the possibilities of a winter trip to Florida, and we have received great response from both sides of the border,” said Tom Curley, president of the American-Canadian Tour. “This is really the ultimate vacation racing for the northern teams. For many decades Robert Hart, Promoter of NSS, has created a great atmosphere for short track fans throughout the country with his 10-day World Series event. ACT is excited to be the latest edition.”

A number of drivers, including Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Jonathan Urlin, Wayne Helliwell, Jr., Eddie MacDonald, Donald Theetge and Karl Allard, have confirmed plans to travel to Florida for the two-day event.

“Our team is really happy about this opportunity,” Polewarczyk said. “We really enjoyed our trip to NSS in the past, and now with our own ACT cars and procedures, racing on that big half-mile should be a great way to jump start the season. I can’t wait.”
