2021 Sponsor Spotlights:
Contingency Sponsors
If you've been to a race at White Mountain Motorsports Park, then you've seen the small decals that adorn a car's fenders, nose, and doors. These contingency sponsors are key supporters for the track and its racing divisions. But who are they, and what do they award competitors throughout the year? We take a look in the latest installment of our Sponsor Spotlight series. (Note: contingencies are listed in alphabetical order.)

ARBodies joined ACT and Thunder Road as a contingency sponsor in 2018. When White Mountain Motorsports Park became a part of the family the following year, ARBodies gladly came along for the ride. This nationally-known company posts several prime year-end packages for competitors at the weekly and touring series levels. At season's end, the ACT Late Model Tour and both weekly Late Model classes raffle off a Late Model "A" Body package to one lucky competitor. The winner can also instead choose a $900 discount on an "M" body package. One Flying Tiger racer at Thunder Road will receive an '88 Monte Carlo Re-Skin Kit while a $500 product certificate will be raffled off among White Mountain Flying Tiger teams. To be eligible for these raffles, drivers must attempt to qualify for at least 75% of the point-counting events for their respective track or series.

In addition, ARBodies gives out product certificates at each of the ACT Tour point-counting events. The feature winner receives a $75 product certificate while the 10th-place finisher gets a $25 certificate. In 2021, the company has also posted a $500 merchandise certificate for the inaugural New England Late Model Challenge Cup. This will be raffled off among competitors who finish in the top-10 in Challenge Cup points and who run ARBodies products throughout the year. All told, ARBodies will award nearly $9,000 worth of packages for ACT-sanctioned events, tracks, and series.

The 2021 calendar year marks the 40th year of motorsports for ARBodies of Greenbrier, TN. Norm Desjardin's company has manufactured race car bodies since 1982. Their line-up of asphalt and dirt bodies includes products for ABC Late Models, Late Model Stock, Muscle Cars, NGB, Sportsman, and Truck series. ARBodies is known for custom-made race winning bodies that come in many different packages to suit a team's needs and budget. Visit www.arbodies.com to learn more.

Five Star Race Car Bodies is one of the longest-running supporters of ACT and its sanctioned tracks. The partnership began way back in 1991 with the former ACT Pro Stock Tour and continued non-stop through 2017. After a two-year hiatus, Five Star returned in 2020, making this coming season the 29th year they have been associated with the sanctioning body.

This year, Five Star is posting a variety of awards for competitors throughout New England. Three complete ABC NextGen Body packages (minus windows and spoiler) will be raffled off -- one each to Late Model racers with the ACT Tour, Thunder Road, and White Mountain who compete in at least 75% of the point-counting events. A $500 product certificate has also been posted for the New England Challenge Cup. This will go to a driver who finishes in the top-10 in points and uses a Five Star body. During the ACT Tour season, the winner of each point-counting event will receive a $75 product certificate. On the Flying Tiger side, one lucky Tiger driver at both Thunder Road and White Mountain will receive a $500 product certificate (must attend at least 75% of point-counting events to be eligible). This comes to nearly $8,000 in products and merchandise certificates.

Five Star is one of the pioneers of modern aftermarket race car bodies. They were founded in 1978 in Twin Lakes, WI as a division of Five Star Fabricating, Inc. Five Star began supplying body panels to the NASCAR Cup Series in 1992 and are an official supplier for many other series. Among other firsts, they created the ABC Body program in 2003 to design affordable body panels for short track racing.

The Late Model class in 2021 will once again be presented by Foley Oil & Propane. The division grew noticeably this past year, and the outlook for 2021 again looks bright.

7-Eleven Lincoln, NH
Entitlement Sponsor of the Dwarf Car Division
One of the most prominent new partners of the last two years at White Mountain has been 7-Eleven of Lincoln, NH.

This year, they'll once again sponsor both the division and their annual 50-lap special on August 7.

7-Eleven is one of the world's largest chains of convenience stores. The company was founded in Dallas as the Southland Ice Company in 1927 and was known as Tote'm Stores from 1928 to 1946.

The ACT Late Model Tour will open its 30th point-counting season
with the Northeast Classic at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on
Saturday, April 17. (Alan Ward photo)
Late Model Racers Across Region
Already Preparing for Big April
Waterbury, VT -- Even with snow still on the ground, the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) seasons are coming up fast. Racing gets underway just after the calendar turns to April, with a doubleheader at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway on April 2 and 3 followed by the inaugural Northeast Classic at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) on April 17.

The triplet of events is a big way to kick off the 36th season of ACT competition and 30th for the ACT Late Model Tour. The first-ever visit for the series to the historic Hickory oval -- known as the "Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars" -- will be followed by the start of the point-counting season at New England's most widely-recognized racetrack.

It's no surprise that some of the biggest names in Northeast Late Model racing are signing up for these events. They will take advantage of the opportunity to compete on two of the country's most meaningful stages for short-track warriors. The entry lists for each event should only grow bigger as the dates near.

A who's-who of touring and weekly racers are registered for either or both tracks. Some of the drivers currently slated to compete at both Hickory and NHMS include multi-time Pro All Stars Series (PASS) champion Ben Rowe of Turner, ME; defending Monadnock Speedway champion Aaron Fellows of Croydon, NH; former Riverside Speedway champions Jeff Marshall of Gilman, VT and Shawn Swallow of Lancaster, NH; and rising star sisters Reilly and Peyton Lanphear of Duxbury, VT.

Meanwhile, three-time ACT champion Wayne "The Punisher" Helliwell Jr. of Dover, NH has committed to the Hickory doubleheader. So are Thunder Road standouts Jason Corliss of Barre, VT and Bobby Therrien of Hinesburg, VT, who've combined to win 3 of the last 4 track championships. Drivers ready to start their season at NHMS include defending ACT champion Jimmy Hebert, former Rookie of the Year Ryan Kuhn, and multi-time Thunder Road and White Mountain Motorsports Park winner Stephen Donahue.

The PASS Super Late Models are also part of both events. Like ACT, their Hickory and NHMS entry lists are loaded with notable racers. The Northeast Classic registration list alone is more than 30 names long as of press time. Former champions Ben Rowe, Center Conway, NH's D.J. Shaw, Farmingdale, ME's Johnny Clark, Belfast, ME's Travis Benjamin, Farmington, ME's Cassius Clark are among the early highlights. Recent New Smyrna Speedweeks winner Derek Griffith is entered for NHMS as are Kuhn, Snowflake 100 winner Jake Johnson, and Oxford 250 winner Curtis Gerry.

Rowe, Shaw, Griffith, and Johnson will all travel to Hickory Motor Speedway in early April for the 15th and 16th annual Easter Bunny 150s. They'll be joined by Canadian Super Late Model standout Cole Butcher and youngsters Trevor Sanborn, Gabe Brown, and Evan Hallstrom among others.

Both events at Hickory as well as the Northeast Classic count towards the 2021 PASS National Championship. As such, a lot will be on the line over those two weeks, with the national title frontrunners likely emerging as the checkered flag flies at NHMS.

ACT opens its 2020 season at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway on Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3. The ACT Late Models will run the Hickory 125 on Friday and the Easter Bunny 125 on Saturday. The PASS Super Late Models have a pair of Easter Bunny 150s with one each day. Ticket prices and other information are to be announced.

The first point-counting event for the ACT Late Model Tour will be the Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 17. The card includes $5,000-to-win events for the ACT Late Models, PASS Super Late Models, and Tour-Type Modifieds. The North East Mini Stock Tour, EXIT Realty Pro Truck Challenge, and an 8-cylinder Street Stock Open are also part of the program. An optional practice day is scheduled for Friday, April 16.

Registration is still open for each event. The entry forms for the ACT Hickory 125 and Easter Bunny 125 are available at www.acttour.com/forms. The latest on the Northeast Classic can be found at www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic.

Challenge Cup Ready for
2021 Debut on Grand Scale
Nine New England Tracks Registered with
Point Fund That Could Exceed $20,000
2021 New England Challenge Cup Entry Form
ACT Challenge Cup Point System PDF
Waterbury, VT -- After a one-year delay, The New England Late Model Challenge Cup (NELMCC) is finally debuting in 2021 -- and it will be even bigger than originally planned. American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials confirmed today that nine tracks have signed up for the first season of the series that will pit weekly Late Model racers from across the region in a summer-long battle for pride, glory, and some serious prize money.

The inaugural Challenge Cup was originally slated for the 2020 season before being pushed back a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The basic format remains the same, with registered drivers taking their 10 best eligible finishes at participating tracks towards the season-long point standings.

However, the scope of the program has grown tremendously during the one-year hiatus. Nine tracks from four New England states have signed up, nearly double the amount that were originally registered for 2020.

The increase in tracks also means an increase in the season-ending awards. A guaranteed minimum point fund of $14,000 has been posted for the Challenge Cup. The $100 registration fee for each driver will also be added to the point fund in full. For example, if 40 drivers sign up for the series, another $4,000 would be added to the point fund for a total of $18,000.

Should registration be on pace with the 2020 pre-pandemic numbers, the total point fund could exceed $20,000. A minimum prize of $3,000 goes to the overall winner. At least the top-10 drivers in the final standings will receive payouts.

Several big contingency and raffle awards have been posted, adding even more value to the program for racer. A Port City Chassis by Crazy Horse Racing will be raffled off at season's end. To qualify for the chassis raffle, drivers must register by the deadline and attempt to qualify for at least 10 point-counting events.

ARBodies and Five Star Bodies are each awarding a $500 product certificate. Drivers who finish in the overall top-10 and have declared they are running an AR or Five Star body will be eligible for these raffles.

Drivers who register by the early-entry deadline of March 1 will also be entered into a Hoosier Tire raffle. Two randomly chosen entrants each receive two free ACT Late Model tires from Hoosier. ACT will also honor the tire awards of the 2020 pre-pandemic raffle winners if they register for this year's Challenge Cup.

"This program is a huge step forward for weekly Late Model racing in New England," ACT managing partner Cris Michaud said. "The Challenge Cup was one of the things we were most excited about in 2020 before the pandemic. Now, with nearly twice as many tracks on board plus some great contingency partners, it's going to be even bigger for teams and fans."

"Weekly racers are the backbone of the sport, and it's important to reward them for their efforts," Michaud went on. "We've come up with a program that does so and which we think will boost car counts and action throughout the region."

Four tracks from the original 2020 slate will return for the 2021 debut: Barre, VT's Thunder Road Speedbowl; North Woodstock, NH's White Mountain Motorsports Park; Connecticut's Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park; and Massachusetts' Seekonk Speedway.

Five other tracks have joined the Challenge Cup. Connecticut's New London-Waterford Speedbowl will be the second Connecticut track. Furthermore, four tracks from the New Hampshire Short Track Racing Association (NHSTRA) have signed up: Monadnock Speedway, Lee USA Speedway, Hudson Speedway, and Claremont Speedway.

Any competitor at the four NHSTRA tracks must use the ACT Late Model rules option the organization has introduced for the 2021 season. In other words, cars need to be 100% ACT legal for drivers to earn Challenge Cup points.

All weekly Late Model features at participating tracks will be eligible for the Challenge Cup. Registered drivers can earn Challenge Cup points at any of the nine tracks. For example, a Thunder Road Late Model regular can also earn points at White Mountain, and a Thompson Speedway regular can also earn points at New London-Waterford Speedbowl or Monadnock Speedway.

A driver's 10 best performances across all tracks count towards their NELMCC total. Points will be awarded based on finishing position, car count, and cars passed. The full system is available at www.acttour.com/NELMCC.

Participating tracks are responsible for reporting results to the ACT offices. ACT Late Model Tour events and "open events" at these tracks are not eligible for Challenge Cup points.

To register for the New England Late Model Challenge Cup, drivers must submit the entry form along with a $100 registration fee by Monday, April 5. Entries postmarked by Monday, March 1 will be eligible for the Hoosier tire drawing. The entry form and point system outline are available at www.acttour.com/NELMCC and on participating track websites.

ACT Switching To Hoosier Tires
Beginning at Community Bank N.A. 150
Waterbury, VT - The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will be sporting some new shoes in 2021. ACT announced today that its officially sanctioned series and tracks are switching to Hoosier tires starting with the Community Bank N.A. 150 at Thunder Road on Sunday, May 2.

ACT Late Models will run a new 8-inch tire specially designed and built for the division. The tire is the result of extensive testing by Hoosier and ACT that focused on reliability and overall performance. ACT has worked directly with Rob Summers, the owner of Hoosier Tire East, throughout the testing process.

The tires cost $130 each, the same price as the 8-inch American Racer tire the class had been using. ACT and its affiliate tracks have been using American Racer as a Late Model tire supplier since the start of the 2014 season.

"We think this is the start of a great partnership," ACT managing partner Cris Michaud said. "Rob Summers has been a pleasure to work with. He understood exactly what we were looking for in a tire and has worked tirelessly to create a tire that fit those requirements. We believe this switch will be a benefit to our teams and help produce great racing for the fans. We're looking forward to seeing how they react at Thunder Road's opening weekend on May 1 and 2."

The Late Models will remain on the current American Racer tire for the Twin 125s at North Carolina's Hickory Speedway on April 2 and 3 and the Northeast Classic at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on April 17. This allows racers to start the season on a tire they're more familiar with and lets ACT use up its current tire inventory. Beginning with the Community Bank N.A. 150 on May 2, the ACT Late Model Tour, Thunder Road, and White Mountain Motorsports Park will begin using the specially-built Hoosier ACT Late Model tire.

The ACT Flying Tigers that compete at Vermont's Thunder Road and New Hampshire's White Mountain Motorsports Park are also getting a tire makeover. In 2021, they will compete on a 7-inch Hoosier tire that is nearly identical in performance and price to the current American Racer tire. The Thunder Road Street Stocks will run a 14-inch diameter Hoosier tire.

Hoosier Racing Tire was founded by Bob Newton in 1957. Over the years, they have designed and provided tires for numerous series, from regional Late Models to the NASCAR Cup Series. Hoosier tires can be found in stock car racing, dirt track racing, rally racing, drag racing, and many other disciplines. They are headquartered in Lakeville, IN and were purchased by Continental Tire in 2016.

Hoosier Tire East was formed in 1982 by the late Bob Summers, whose son Rob now runs the company. They are based in Manchester, CT and distribute tires to a variety of tracks and touring series throughout the Northeastern United States.

PIT ENTRY AGE LIMITS
The management team at White Mountain Motorsports Park powered by the Autosaver Group has made a change in policy for admitting youngsters in the pit area.

Youngsters of any age will be allowed to enter the pit area. All necessary release forms must be filled out and turned in to track pit booth personnel that day. There are no special rates for these youngsters as they must pay current day pit prices. Every youth must pay the fee including infants, no exceptions. The reason for this is for insurance purposes.

SPECIAL RULES ARE IN EFFECT FOR THIS PROGRAM

1. All minors must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
2. If found running around unsupervised, the individual(s) privilege will be revoked for the season.
3. If an individual loses the privilege to be in the pits, there are absolutely no refunds.

White Mountain Motorsports Park management reserves the right to cancel this program at any time.
