Field is Set for ACT Late Model Goodyear
Speedweeks Cup at New Smyrna
Twins Races Are Set for February 13th and 14th
ACT PR Report

The American Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced the twenty eight teams that will comprise the starting field for the highly anticipated inaugural Goodyear Speedweeks Cup event to be held at the New Smyrna Speedway (NSS) in Florida during next month’s Daytona Speedweeks. ACT will present two 100-lap features on Sunday night, February 13, 2011 and Monday night, February 14, 2011 during the New Smyrna World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing. The posted purse will be $36,655.00

Qualifying for the Sunday event will use the northern style heat racing to establish the lineup. Fans from all over the country will see the unique +/- system incorporated into the ACT qualifying program four years ago. The Monday 100 lap feature will see an inversion from the results of the Sunday feature event.

“Since this will be our first trip to New Smyrna, we wanted to make sure we offer the many fans from around the country the most exciting and competitive racing we can,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour. “I think what makes our racing so popular in the Northeast is that we have a kind of a ‘no holds barred but respectful approach to racing’ --- at NSS, teams will have to race their way in through heats, and then Monday may the best man win racing from the rear,” Curley continued.

The non-points race for the ACT competitors is perhaps the most diverse field in the 25-year history of the ACT. Teams will make the 20-30 hour haul from six states and two provinces of Canada. The twenty-eight teams will include: both 2010 Champions from the ACT US and the ACT Castrol Edge Series; eleven teams from Canada; a two-time Oxford Plains TD Bank 250 winner; both the 2009 and 2010 New Hampshire Motor Speedway ACT Invitational winners; three Thunder Road Milk Bowl winners and a number of weekly defending track champions.
