ACT Late Model Sportsman Series
The ACT Late Model Sportsman series was started in 1992. Tom Curley had created the division at Thunder Road as a feeder series for the ACT Pro Stock series. The late models raced weekly at Thunder Road and Airborne in addition to competing in eight extra distance races. After the demise of the ACT Pro Stock series in 1995, the Late Model series stepped up to the plate as the premier ACT division. Car counts were good , but remained mostly Vermont cars. By 1999, Tom started to grow the series with an expanded schedule and more venues. 2000 saw the introduction of the GM spec motor, as a means of controlling expences. 2001 saw the addition of Dodge as the major sponsor and the expansion of the tour to 16 races. New drivers from New Hampshire and New York started to run the tour. 2002 saw even more drivers from outside Vermont join the tour. Recognition of the ACT is starting to grow once again. Many tracks throughout northern New England are asking for ACT races. At this point in time Tom is determined to hold the tour to around 16 races. The future is looking very bright for the ACT.
Currently the only section that is open for the Late Models is the driver profile section. Stats from 1992-1995 will be added throughout the winter. Additional sections, such as track profiles and official finisheds are planned for the future. Questions and comments are welcome at email@example.com
