LOUDON, N.H. – Officials from the Pro All Star Series and the American-Canadian Tour have announced the event schedule for the inaugural Northeast Classic, April 17-18 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

The two premier full-fendered series in the Northeast are partnering up on New England’s biggest stage for what is hoped to be a yearly event.

“What bigger way to open our 2020 Northeast racing season than on the biggest stage in the region,” said PASS President Tom Mayberry.  “We’re glad to be working with ACT and NHMS on this event and aim to make it a new annual tradition for racers from Connecticut to Quebec.”

The Northeast Classic will also feature open races for the tour-type modifieds, the Street Stock class, and the New England Mini-Stock Tour for its seventh appearance at the Magic Mile.

All the action kicks off on Friday, April 17, with a full card of rotating practice for all five divisions. Saturday, April 18 will feature qualifying and main event racing, with Sunday, April 19 held in reserve if necessary as a rain date.
