ACT - Although not an ACT Late Model race per se, the home track for the Tour, Thudner Road Speedbowl (VT), hosted a big holiday race on Tuesday night.
Veteran stock car racer Kip Stockwell arrived back “home” in victory lane at Thunder Road in the 50-lap Pepsi Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular on Tuesday night.
Stockwell took the fifth Late Model division win of his career, but it was his first trip to the winner’s circle since 1997.
After a successful stint at Thunder Road in the 1990s, Stockwell competed on the NASCAR Busch East Series for nearly a decade, and raced at places as far away as California. The 2007 season marked Stockwell’s return to Thunder Road and the ACT Tour.
