Vermont Racer is on a Roll
ACT PR Report
Brent Dragon of Milton, VT scored his second feature win of the week in American Canadian Tour competition. Dragon took home the win in the Twin State 100 at Twin State Speedway in Claremont, NH after winning the Showdown at Chaudiere just five days ago. It was Dragon’s first win of the 2009 ACT Tour season.

Dragon took over the lead after Phil Scott was involved in a lap 82 accident. Prior to the accident Scott had led every lap after starting on the pole. Dragon came from the fourth starting position to challenge Scott before the wreck. John Donahue challenged Dragon for the final 17 laps but settled for second, followed by point leader Scott Payea in third. Young Joey Doiron came home fourth followed by Brian Hoar to round out the top five. Quebec’s Daniel Descoste finished sixth followed by Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Ben Rowe, Aaron Fellows and Dallas Trombley completed the top ten.

The 100 green flag laps were completed in just under 45 minutes with sixth cautions. Thirty cars started the event with 14 cars finishing on the lead lap. Forty-one cars attempted to qualify.

Dragon has already qualified for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 19 with both a win on the Serie ACT Castrol at Riverside Speedway and with last week’s win in the Showdown at Chaudiere. Twenty-eight drivers have received invites with more to be announced next week.

The American Canadian Tour Championship Stock Cars will be back in action in just two days, as they finished off their Labor Day weekend doubleheader at Thunder Road International Speedbowl. Sunday, September 6 will mark the running of the 31st Annual Bond Auto Labor Day Classic. Local divisions will start their qualifying on Saturday, September 5 at 3 pm. Also Saturday will be a practice session for the ACT Tour. Sunday’s action will begin at 1:30 pm.
