Helliwell Sweeps Hickory Weekend
at ACT Easter Bunny 125
Hickory, NC -- Dover, NH's Wayne Helliwell Jr. pulled a clean sweep of the first American-Canadian Tour (ACT) trip to North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway by winning the Easter Bunny 125 on Saturday, April 3. Helliwell took the lead from New Salem, MA's Tom Carey III in lapped traffic on the 44th circuit and was unstoppable down the stretch to double up after his victory in the Hickory 125 the night before.

It was the 17th ACT-sanctioned Late Model win for the three-time ACT Tour champion. Although he has only run a partial schedule in recent seasons, Helliwell has proved to still be a threat every time he shows up, earning four ACT victories within the last calendar year.

The going was tougher for Helliwell this time around as he had to come from 10th on the starting grid. Herman, ME's Mike Hopkins, fresh off a podium finish in the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Easter Bunny 150, led the field to the green flag. Hopkins led the first 10 laps before Danville, VT's Tyler Cahoon dove to the inside. Cahoon was able to stick his nose out front for three circuits before Hopkins rolled back around him.

However, Hopkin's second stay at the front didn't last much longer than the first. After taking it easy early, outside polesitter Tom Carey III roared to life, diving inside Hopkins on the front stretch as they completed lap 26. Although Carey at first had to crack the throttle for a lapped car, he drove back underneath Hopkins to take the top spot on lap 27. The hesitation for the slower machine would prove an unfortunate omen.

As the leaders sorted it out, Helliwell was passing cars left and right. He moved into the second spot on lap 34 and chased down Carey as they weaved through traffic. With 43 circuits complete, the duo caught a pair of cars. Carey went high entering turn one to pass the first car, but the second car drifted into his path exiting turn two, and Helliwell took advantage to seize the lead down low.

A trio of cautions came out in short order to slow the pace. The second yellow on lap 56 was the most calamitous, as Cahoon got sideways in traffic exiting turn four to trigger a multi-car melee. Cahoon soldiered on after the crash, but Shawn Swallow, Derek Gluchacki, and Aaron Fellows were forced to retire with major damage.

After Quinny Welch caught the turn 2 wall a couple laps later, Helliwell and Carey drove off from the pack. Carey appeared to be the only driver who might have anything from Helliwell. However, luck was again not on Carey's side, as he slowed with a flat left-front tire on lap 71 to bring out the fourth yellow.

From there, it was all Helliwell at the front. Turner, ME's Ben Rowe had moved up to third by the time the final caution flag flew on lap 104 for Jamie Swallow Jr.'s spin. But while Rowe slid into second on the restart, Helliwell was in another zip code, turning on the jets to become a multi-time Hickory Motor Speedway winner.

Rowe followed up his third-place finish on Friday night with a runner-up trophy on Saturday. Carey bounced back from his flat tire to put on a dazzling duel with Candia, NH's Jimmy Renfrew Jr. for third place over the final dozen laps. Renfrew, whose team was up until 4:00am on Saturday repairing their car in a hotel parking lot, edged Carey at the finish line.

Hopkins faded to fifth on the final run. Marcel J. Gravel, Stephen Donahue, Chip Grenier, Trenton Goodrow, and Swallow Jr. completed the top-10.

The ACT Late Model Tour begins its 2021 point-counting season at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 17. The inaugural Northeast Classic features $5,000-to-win events for the ACT Late Models, PASS Super Late Models, and Tour-type Modifieds. The EXIT Realty Pro Truck Challenge, 8-Cylinder Street Stocks, and North East Mini Stock Tour are also on the card.

Qualifying begins at 11:00am with features at 1:30pm. Admission is $30 for adults and $10 for kids ages 12 and under. Visit www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic for the complete schedule and camping registration forms.

Helliwell Becomes First to Stand
in ACT Victory Lane at Hickory
Hickory, NC -- Dover, NH's Wayne Helliwell Jr. added another accomplishment to his long racing resume by winning the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Hickory 125 on Friday, April 2. The three-time ACT champion led all but two laps and survived multiple challenges from Herman, ME's Mike Hopkins to win the series' first event at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway.

The victory was Helliwell's 16th career ACT-sanctioned Late Model win, putting him in a tie for fifth-place on the all-time list. It came on the front end of an Easter weekend doubleheader at the historic 0.363-mile oval.

Helliwell earned the pole in qualifying under ACT's "plus-minus" system and set the pace at the drop of the green. Behind him and Graniteville, VT's Stephen Donahue, the field mixed it up early and often, with Lancaster, NH's Jamie Swallow Jr. quickly slicing his way to the third spot.

After the first caution on lap 17 for Randy Cole Jr.'s spin, Hopkins entered the picture. Hopkins, a Pro All Stars Series (PASS) regular making his first ACT start, blew past Swallow Jr. and Donahue to take second. He then gave chase to Helliwell as the two left the pack behind them.

Entering turn 3 on the 33rd circuit, Hopkins dove inside Helliwell. The multi-time PASS winner led lap 34 by a bumper, only to see Helliwell surge back in front. The action was just as hot behind them, with Donahue all over Swallow Jr. for third and the rest of the top-10 dicing around the 0.363-mile oval.

A series of cautions between laps 50 and 56 drastically altered the running order behind Helliwell and Hopkins. As the leaders navigated lapped traffic with 50 laps complete, Reilly Lanphear got crossed up on the backstretch. Fifth-place Brooks Clark had nowhere to go and plowed into Lanphear, sidelining both for the night.

Another caution flew a lap later when Shawn Swallow spun entering turn one. During the yellow, Jamie Swallow Jr. pitted out of third and eventually retired for the night due to a broken sway bar mount. Hopkins stuck a radiator cap out front on the restart to lead lap 52 but couldn't hold the outside line and saw Helliwell retake command.

The event's fourth caution flew on lap 55 when Mike Mitchell and Jeff Marshall tangled in turn two. Calamity struck again a lap later when Donahue and Tom Carey III got together racing for the third spot. Carey spun and both went to the rear of the field.

The event then went green for the final 69 laps -- but it was far from the end of the action. Hopkins was able to close on Helliwell whenever they got into traffic, which happened frequently over the final run. As late as the 15-to-go mark, Hopkins was right in Helliwell's shadow with double-file lapped cars ahead. Every time, though, Helliwell made the right move, pulling away in the final laps for the victory.

Multi-time PASS champion Ben Rowe of Turner, ME was quiet most of the night before coming on strong late for a third-place finish. Carver, MA's Trenton Goodrow had the best of his ACT career, passing Graniteville, VT's Chip Grenier late for fourth. Grenier was the final car on the lead lap in fifth after the long green-flag run. Quinny Welch, Donahue, Tyler Cahoon, Derek Gluchacki, and Bobby Therrien completed the top-10.

The American-Canadian Tour is right back at Hickory Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 3 for the second leg of the North Carolina doubleheader. The ACT Easter Bunny 125 is joined by the PASS Easter Bunny 150 beginning at 5:15pm.

Grandstand admission tickets are available at the gate. Fans can also watch live on Speed51.TV with a $24.99 pay-per-view. Sign up for the broadcast at www.speed51.tv/products/ppv-easter-bunny-saturday-at-hickory.

Billboard Sponsors Part #2
and More......
It’s time for Part 2 of our billboard sponsor spotlight - plus a look at a couple of other special partners we’ve added to the WMMP family. Make sure to support them whenever possible! (Note: sponsors are listed in alphabetical order.)

Official WMMP Scoreboard Sponsor
Although they're one of the newest WMMP partners, EKeys4Cars is no stranger to motorsports. ACT and White Mountain fans will recognize them as a longtime primary sponsor of Wayne Helliwell Jr. and Bernhardt Motorsports. The duo has carried the company's colors for three ACT championships, an Oxford 250 win, a Midsummer 250 win, and many other accomplishments. EKeys4Cars has also been a regular supporter of Lee USA Speedway. They now join White Mountain as the official scoreboard sponsor in a multi-year agreement.

Whenever fans look at the running order, they'll also see where to go for electronic car key transponders, remote keyless entry, and smart keys. The company began as Canobie Lock, a full-service locksmith company. Owner Jim "Ted" Broadhurst adopted the EKeys4Cars name in 2003 as part of a new mission to provide advanced key technology at an affordable price. They make duplicate keys, replace lost or damaged keys, and still provide emergency on-site locksmith service that's AAA-affiliated. From the main office in North Andover, MA, EKeys4Cars has customers throughout Northeast Massachusetts and the New Hampshire Merrimack Valley. Visit www.ekeys4cars.com or call 1-888-55-EKeys to learn more.

Official Fireworks Provider of Thunder Road
& White Mountain Motorsports Park
Whenever there's a fireworks display at an ACT-sanctioned track, Northstar Fireworks is the one providing it. Their shows for Independence Day, the Milk Bowl, and other events in recent years have electrified auto racing fans. Unfortunately, fireworks at Thunder Road have been on pause since the start of 2020 due to the pandemic, but fans who went to the Independence Day doubleheader at WMMP last year could see them in all their glory. Northstar Fireworks now also has a billboard at Thunder Road and hopefully will be able to resume shows there soon.

As Vermont's premier fireworks company, Northstar Fireworks puts on more than 250 spectacular shows a year across New England and New York. Their clients include municipalities, weddings, fairgrounds, ski resorts, and performances. A specially-trained teams of technicians and artists make sure every show goes off just the way the client wants, often beginning preparations months in advance.

Billboard Sponsor
By both current and former names, O'Reilly Auto Parts has been a part of motorsports in the region for decades. Bond Auto Parts was a huge supporter of local auto racing; they spent well over a decade as the sponsor of the Thunder Road Flying Tiger division and sponsored the ACT Invitational at NHMS for several years. When O'Reilly Auto Parts acquired Bond Auto Parts in late 2016, they continued their racing involvement. They now join WMMP with a multi-year billboard agreement that lets fans know where they can find high-quality automotive parts

The Bond Auto acquisition made O'Reilly an even bigger player on the national scene. O'Reilly Auto Parts was founded in December 1957 as a single family-owned parts store in Springfield, Missouri. There are now more than 5,400 O'Reilly parts stores in 47 states along with 20+ stores in Mexico. O'Reilly is the place to shop for OEM replacement parts and aftermarket parts to fit all major vehicle makes. They also sell tools, supplies, equipment, and accessories from leading brands. Central Vermonters can find O'Reilly stores in Barre, South Barre, Montpelier, and Berlin -- and the Berlin store is open seven days a week. Many local auto repair shops purchase parts directly from O'Reilly. Visit www.oreillyauto.com to browse their selection or place an order.

Billboard Sponsor
This year, both Thunder Road and White Mountain Motorsports welcome Price Chopper/Market 32 to the billboard family. Although there's nothing like a concession stand hamburger or convenience store slushee on race day, you need to eat the rest of the week, too. Price Chopper can certainly help with that. Whether you're stocking up for the next couple weeks or just need a few quick items, Price Chopper has them at great prices. After all, nobody chops prices more.

More than 130 combined Price Chopper and Market 32 supermarkets can be found throughout New England, Upstate New York, and Pennsylvania. Both offer all the groceries and household essentials you can imagine along with Market Bistro to-go meals, a deli, adult beverages, and a full-service pharmacy.

Thunder Road fans can shop at Price Chopper on the Barre-Montpelier Road as well as Morrisville and Essex Junction. White Mountain goers can find a Price Chopper right down the road in Lincoln or in St. Johnsbury (VT). View their weekly flyer at www.pricechopper.com.

Some of the fastest racers in New England go to RPM Racing Engines of Georgia, VT. Owner Rick Paya is a many-time champion as a crew chief and also won championships with three different ACT legends -- Jean-Paul Cyr, Brian Hoar, and Scott Payea -- as a car owner. Although the RPM Motorsports team was shut down in 2020, he continues to serve racers throughout the region. This past year, both the Thunder Road "King of the Road" (Jason Corliss) and WMMP "King of the Mountain" (Stacy Cahoon) went to RPM for their engine work. What you might not know is that RPM Racing Engines also serves passionate DIY car guys and boating enthusiasts. Their White Mountain billboard alerts anyone who likes going fast who they can turn to.

RPM is the most trusted name in performance crate engines and parts for asphalt or dirt racing. Some of the series that RPM is an approved engine builder for are the American-Canadian Tour, Pro All Stars Series, NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, DIRTcar Racing, NASCAR Pinty's Series, and Gander Outdoors Truck Series.

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

Point Fund That Could Exceed $20,000

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.

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.


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.
