LOUDON, N.H. – The American-Canadian Tour and the Pro All Star Series have announced plans to open their seasons on April 17-18 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway during the inaugural Northeast Classic.
ACT and PASS are partnering up as co-promoters for the event that features two of the region’s top touring series. The American-Canadian Tour and PASS North series’ are set for twin 75-lap main events. Both will be point-counting events that open the title chases for their respective series.
The event is ACT’s first visit to NHMS since the 2017 ACT Invitational. It will be the second points paying event for the series at the 1.058-mile speedway, joining the ACT All-Star Challenge in 2011. PASS returns to the Magic Mile for the second-straight year and third time overall after running National Championship Series events in 2015 and 2019.
In addition to ACT and PASS, the Northeast Classic also includes open shows for tour-type modifieds and eight-cylinder Street Stocks. The modifieds will have a 75-lap main event while the street stocks will go 40 laps.
April 17 has been set as practice day for the Northeast Classic with racing on April 18. The rain date will be April 19. More details on all events will be announced soon.
“We’re beyond excited to return to NHMS,” ACT Managing Partner Cris Michaud said. “A few months ago, an event like this wasn’t even on our radar. But Tom Mayberry and the folks at NHMS worked with us to make it happen, and we’ve put something together that we think racers and fans will love. ACT had a great run at NHMS with the Invitational for nine years, and we’re happy to start a new chapter at this great race track.”
“We’re already looking forward to April,” PASS owner Tom Mayberry added. “A big event always gets a season started on the right foot. What bigger way to open our 2020 Northeast racing season than on the biggest stage in the region? 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 remainder of the American Canadian Tour and Pro All Stars Series schedules will be announced within the next few weeks.
