An Open Letter to White Mountain Teams, Fans, Staff, & Sponsors
Hello all,

We hope you're doing well as the 2020 racing season grows smaller in the rearview. It was an eventful year in many ways, but ultimately one that we think points towards a bright future at White Mountain Motorsports Park.

Like every track in the region, the White Mountain season got off to a late start. The COVID-19 pandemic put everything on standstill beginning in mid-March, and for many weeks, there was no clear answer on when racing might start. It was certainly a tough spot to be in with everyone ready to race and no one having a place to.    FULL LETTER HERE

White Mountain Adds
NH Street Stock Open
to Fall Foliage Weekend
ACT Fall Foliage 200 Moved
to Sunday, September 26
N. Woodstock, NH - The final weekend of the 2021 season at White Mountain Motorsports Park has gotten even bigger. White Mountain officials and R&R Race Parts NH have announced that the second annual 75-lap, $5,000-to-win New Hampshire Street Stock Open will be held at the North Woodstock, NH high banks on Saturday, September 25th.

The 8-cylinder Street Stock Open debuted in September 2020 to great fanfare. Earlier in the offseason, event organizers polled teams and fans asking where they'd like the second edition held. White Mountain Motorsports Park was the top choice, leading R&R Race Parts NH to reach out to the track.

A total purse of more than $18,000 has been posted for 30 starting positions. This includes the $5,000 top prize for the winner, matching the winner's purse of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Fall Foliage 200.

"Adding the New Hampshire Street Stock Open is another crown jewel on the 2021 schedule," White Mountain Motorsports park managing partner Cris Michaud said. "We're honored that teams and fans wanted to have this event at White Mountain, and we're glad to work with R&R Race Parts NH and make it happen. This turns Fall Foliage Weekend into a true season-ending festival with two $5,000-to-win races and other great action."

With the addition of the NH Street Stock Open, Fall Foliage Weekend is now a two-day event. As part of the expanded race weekend, the Fall Foliage 200 for the ACT Late Model Tour will move to Sunday, September 26.

The Dads 4 By Tool & Supply Kids Trucks also have been added to the weekend. They join the championship-crowning events for the Wells River Chevrolet Flying Tigers, Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank Strictly Stock Mini's, and 7-Eleven Dwarf Cars. Track officials are in talks with other series about potentially adding them to the card.

The complete 2021 schedule of events can be found at whitemountainmotorsports.com/schedule.html. The schedule remains subject to change pending the local and country-wide COVID-19 situation.

Offseason Spotlight:
Beattie Sweeps Flying Tiger
Rookie Awards at Thunder
Road and White Mountain
-
Youngster Planning Big Moves for 2021
Barre, VT and N. Woodstock, NH - The Rookie of the Year is one of the most sought-after awards for young racers. In some ways, it may be even harder to win than a championship. The reason is simple -- once you join a division, you only get one shot at the honor.

That is, unless you're St. Johnsbury, VT's Kasey Beattie. The 16-year-old pulled off a rare feat in 2020, sweeping the Flying Tiger Rookie of the Year Award at both Barre, VT's Thunder Road and North Woodstock, NH's White Mountain Motorsports Park. With numerous top finishes, he outclassed his fellow first-year competitors in two different states.

Beattie entered the season coming off an impressive career in the Street Stock division. He was the co-champion at Riverside Speedway in 2018, and in 2019, he finished fourth in rk Miles Street Stock points at Thunder Road. After the team purchased a Flying Tiger late in 2019, Beattie made his debut in the Oxford Open, then set his sights on a 2020 rookie campaign.

"Some of my biggest goals were really to get top-10s, top-5s -- hopefully at least get a couple of those," Beattie said. "I really exceed my goals, especially at White Mountain with getting a win there. Another big goal was to drive it in the trailer every week, and we succeeded at that every single week. I was happy about that."

Accomplishing the last part was even bigger when considering the scope of Beattie's first Flying Tiger season. Instead of just one track, Beattie and his team decided to double up. They would run the Lenny's Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers on Thursday nights at Thunder Road, then head to White Mountain Motorsports Park for the Wells River Chevrolet Flying Tiger showdowns on Saturday night. He also ended up running a Honey Badger Street Stock Series event at Thunder Road and the Open at Oxford Plains Speedway.

Even with the late start of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Beattie unofficially competed in 29 events. Thanks to the support of sponsors like Mark Baxter at Creative Counters, Andy Mitchell at The Auto Shed, and Verizon Wireless -- plus a large pit crew of family and friends -- Beattie packed two years of racing into one summer.

"We mostly did it for the experience," Beattie said of running two tracks full-time. "It was nice to get two seasons of experience in one season. It was really expensive, but it was definitely nice to get two years of experience in one."

While learning a new car is a challenge for anyone, Beattie got comfortable behind the wheel of a Flying Tiger car faster than he thought. He finished 10th in a 22-car field at White Mountain's non-point season opener, then closed out the month of June with 3rd- and 4th-place finishes. On the Thunder Road side, he managed to qualify for the first three events and post solid finishes while coming from the back.

This set the teenager up for a torrid month of July. To kick things off, Beattie surprised even himself by picking up his first Flying Tiger win at White Mountain. He grabbed the lead on lap 6 from veteran Matthew Potter and ended up winning the 50-lap feature by a quarter-track -- doing so in front of one of the season's biggest crowds that had come to watch the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour make its WMMP debut.

"I definitely did not think that the car was going to amazing like how it was that night -- and definitely not that early in the season," Beattie recalled. "I was just hoping for a couple of top-3s around midseason. To get a win early in the season was crazy. It kept my confidence up, too. That's a big thing with racing -- you've got to have confidence."

He took that confidence into the Myers Container Service Triple Crown opener at Thunder Road on July 9. What followed was a thrilling race-long duel between Beattie, eventual winner Brandon Lanphear, and Jaden Perry. Beattie ended up third but was ecstatic with the result.

"That was probably my favorite race of the entire season," Beattie said. "That race means more to me than even the win at White Mountain. We had a really fast car, and it was an amazing battle with Brandon and Jaden. I tried making a move on Brandon, but couldn't get it done."

Beattie ended the month of July with another pair of trophies. On July 24 at Thunder Road -- a special Friday night show thanks to Mother Nature -- Beattie took 10th in a make-up feature, then second in the double-point Midseason Championships. The next night, he headed to White Mountain and came home with another second-place trophy. It seemed everything was going right for the high schooler from Caledonia County.

However, some rough waters were ahead. Although Beattie continued putting up respectable results at White Mountain, his Midseason runner-up at Thunder Road was followed by four straight finishes of 23rd or worse.

"We mainly just lost the balance of the car," Beattie said of his late-summer struggles. "Some weeks, we were going back and forth from really loose to really tight. We just couldn't find the balance for awhile."

"We did a lot of maintenance on the car," Beattie continued. "We tore every single bit of the car apart and then put it back together how we thought it should be. We still weren't as good as we were at the beginning of the season, but we definitely improved down the stretch."

The swoon also tightened up the Thunder Road Rookie of the Year battle. While Beattie was the clear front-runner all year at White Mountain, he found himself under pressure from Bryan Wall Jr. in the Green Mountains. The fellow teenager won two races and closed to within a single point of Beattie following the August 13 event.

"It was really fun," Beattie said of the battle. "Me and B-Wall are really good friends, Even throughout the battle, we still stayed friends and talked all the time. We went over to each other's trailers and everything after races. It was really intense, though. Later in the season, I definitely thought he was going to get us, but we were able to hold him off with a couple of good finishes."

Beattie was finally able to right the ship in late August. He rolled to a runner-up finish at Thunder Road on August 20 with a fourth the next week. At White Mountain, he finished seventh or better in the final five events of the season. The youngster did so while also having to master the differences between the quarter-mile speedplants.

"White Mountain is a really heavy braking track," Beattie noted. "At Thunder Road, unless you're in deep traffic, you don't really touch the brakes. And at Thunder Road, you've really got to get up on the wheel and drive it. At White Mountain, I feel you can be more smooth and hit your marks a lot better."

When the checkered flag fell at White Mountain on September 26, he had officially sewn up both Rookie of the Year titles. He finished third in overall White Mountain points and 14th in Thunder Road points. Including non-point features, Beattie posted 1 win, 6 podium finishes, 11 top-5s, and 19 top-10s. At White Mountain, he was the only Flying Tiger driver to finish in the top-10 of every feature. He did so while learning a lot behind the wheel and having fun with his family every step of the way.

"It definitely means a lot to me," Beattie said of the Rookie of the Year awards. "I proved to myself that I can do it and be competitive. That was the biggest thing -- I'm a really competitive person, so if I wasn't competitive, I didn't want to do it. (Winning both awards) proved to myself that I was competitive and could roll with the big boys."

One notable aspect of the season was Beattie's success in long-distance events. In the eight Flying Tiger events that were 75 laps or longer, he finished in the top-10 six times. This put him in the top-10 in Triple Crown Series points at both Thunder Road and White Mountain.

"I really like long races, even back to the Street Stocks, when we ran long races and had that Twin State series between Thunder Road and Groveton," Beattie said. "I did really well in the long races. I can get in a groove and hit my marks a lot better, and I just feel like those nights, the crew gives me an amazing car, so I can drive up through the field and stay consistent."

Beattie will get to run a lot of long races in 2021. He revealed during our interview that his team recently purchased a Late Model from Joey Laquerre and plans to run for another Rookie of the Year honor at White Mountain in 2021. He said his goals are to get top-10 finishes, try to finish in the top-10 in points, and again drive the car into the trailer after every event.

"We're not a big-budget team, and I drive like that," Beattie said. "I don't like to beat and bang off people, because I know stuff can break and things can go wrong. I like to keep my head on my shoulders, drive smoothly, and not try to move people and wreck people."

In the meantime, Beattie is honing his racing skills virtually via iRacing. He got his start in the popular racing simulation two Christmases ago. This winter, he has been competing in the Inside Groove iRacing Challenge, where he sits seventh in points going into the regular season finale on Wednesday, January 20. Beattie is one of many Thunder Road, White Mountain, and ACT regulars racing, which fans can watch live at 7:30pm on facebook.com/InsideGrooveTV.

"I didn't run much asphalt stuff at first -- I ran a lot of dirt," Beattie said. "But I started getting into the asphalt lately, especially with The Inside Groove. It's definitely making the time fly, because it's the offseason, but you still want to race. It's super-fun with all the guys like Jimmy (Hebert), Ryan (Kuhn), Logan (Powers) -- they're all really good racers, and it's fun to still race with them weekly."

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.

For more information, contact the ACT offices at (802) 244-6963, media@acttour.com, or visit www.acttour.com. You can also get updates on Facebook and Twitter at @ACTTour. To learn more about Hoosier Racing Tires and Hoosier Tire East, visit www.hoosiertire.com or www.hoosiertireeast.com.

ACT Heading to Hickory This
April for Twin 125-Lap Events
Series Making Inaugural Visit to
Historic North Carolina Track
Waterbury, VT - The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) is heading south to get an early start on the 2021 racing season. Officials announced today that a pair of ACT Late Model events have been scheduled at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway for Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3.

The 125-lap events are part of a doubleheader organized by the Pro All Stars Series (PASS). The trip will be ACT's first-ever visit to the historic 0.363-mile speedway.

Friday, April 2 is the ACT Hickory 125 along with the 2020 PASS Super Late Model Easter Bunny 150, which was pushed back a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Saturday, April 3 features the ACT Easter Bunny 125 and the 2021 Easter Bunny 150. Post time is 5:00pm each day.

Both the Friday and Saturday events will have separate qualifying, features, and purses. The events will not count for points towards the ACT Late Model Tour championship.

"We're getting more excited about this event every day," ACT managing partner Cris Michaud said. "When Tom Mayberry of PASS invited us to be part of the event, we were immediately intrigued. However, we wanted to make sure there was enough interest from teams before committing. The response we got was incredibly positive and convinced us to say yes."

"Hickory is one of those bucket-list tracks for a series," Michaud went on. "It's like the trip to Richmond Raceway two years ago or the first ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway back in 2009. Almost every short track racing fan has heard of Hickory. We're honored PASS would even consider having us at the event, and we think it's going to be a great show."

The entry forms for both Easter Bunny 125s are now available at www.acttour.com/forms. The early-entry deadline is March 1, 2021. Event schedules and other information will be announced soon. Details are subject to change pending the course of the ongoing pandemic.

Hickory Motor Speedway opened in 1951 and is known as both "The World's Most Famous Short Track" and "The Birthplace of the NASCAR Stars". The NASCAR Cup series held 35 events at the track between 1953 and 1971. The NASCAR Xfinity Series then held 42 events at Hickory from 1982 through 1998. Hickory was also a regular stop for the NASCAR Modified and Late Model Sportsman National Championships, Grand National East Series, Dash Series, X-1R Pro Cup Series, and other tours throughout its history. PASS has sanctioned both PASS South and PASS National Championship Series events at the track since 2006.

Hickory began its life as a 1/2-mile dirt track and went through multiple configurations before adopting the current 0.363-mile paved layout in 1970. Past winners at the track include legends such as Junior Johnson, Dale Earnhardt, Harry Gant, Richie Evans, Bobby Allison, Jack Ingram, Tommy Houston, and Bubba Pollard.

The full 2021 ACT schedule can be found at www.acttour.com/actusschedule. The ACT Late Model rules are also posted on the Tour website at www.acttour.com/rules.

2021 ACT TOUR SCHEDULE PDF
Waterbury, VT - American-Canadian Tour (ACT) officials have announced an update to the 2021 ACT Late Model Tour schedule. The May 2021 events at New Hampshire's Lee USA Speedway and Barre, VT's Thunder Road have switched places to better accommodate the tracks.

The 23rd Community Bank N.A. 150 at Thunder Road is now slated for Sunday, May 2. The event is the opener for Thunder Road's 62nd season of competition. An optional practice day is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 1.

The Lee USA 150 will be a one-day show on Sunday, May 16. It is part of an event that includes the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models and PASS Modifieds. An 8-cylinder Street Stock Open has also been added to the Lee USA card. More information on both the Lee and Thunder Road events will be available closer to the start of the season.

"After speaking with Lee USA officials, we decided this was the best option for everyone," ACT and Thunder Road managing partner Cris Michaud said. "They wanted the doubleheader to be a little later in the month, and it actually works out well for us, since teams that run both Thunder Road and White Mountain Motorsports Park will have a less hectic start to the year. We look forward to seeing everyone at both Thunder Road and Lee in a few months."

The 2021 ACT Late Model Tour season opens at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 17 with the inaugural Northeast Classic. The event also features the PASS Super Late Models, a Tour-Type Modified Open, the North East Mini Stock Tour, an 8-cylinder Street Stock Open, and the Exit Realty Pro Truck Challenge.

Waterbury, VT - The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) has announced the 2021 schedule of events for the ACT Late Model Tour. Twelve point-counting events are slated for the Tour's 30th season across nine tracks throughout New England and Quebec.

Highlights of the schedule includes six sanctioned events that pay at least $5,000 to win, six doubleheader events with the Pro All Stars Series (PASS), long-awaited returns to several tracks throughout the Northeast, and the renewal of one of ACT's oldest events.

In announcing the schedule, ACT stressed that it is subject to change based on the ongoing worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. Events could be dropped, added, or moved depending on how the situation evolves regionally and nationally over the coming months.

The 2021 ACT season begins at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) with the inaugural Northeast Classic. A practice day is scheduled for Friday, April 16 with qualifying and a $5,000-to-win feature on Saturday, April 17. The event was originally supposed to debut in 2020 before getting pushed back a year due to the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak.

After a week off, the ACT Late Model Tour heads to New Hampshire's Lee USA Speedway on Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2. The 150-lap event comes following a two-year ACT hiatus from the track. The PASS Super Late Models are also on the card at both NHMS and Lee.

On Sunday, May 16, ACT rolls into Barre, VT's Thunder Road Speedbowl for the 23rd Community Bank N.A. 150. The Tour then has three weeks off before traveling to N. Woodstock, NH's White Mountain Motorsports Park for the 46th Spring Green on Saturday, June 12. Thunder Road and White Mountain are the only tracks booked to host multiple point-counting ACT events in 2021.

The next two events are ACT/PASS doubleheaders at New Hampshire tracks that last held an ACT event more than a decade ago. Sunday, June 20 will see the ACT Tour visit Hudson Speedway. The only previous Tour visit was a 2001 event won by Pete Fecteau. On Sunday, July 4, ACT journeys to Winchester, NH's Monadnock Speedway for the Independence Day 150. The last ACT trip there was a 2003 event won by Todd Stone.

ACT then has three straight big-money showdowns on the calendar. Saturday, July 24 is the $5,000-to-win Claude Leclerc 150 at Vallée-Jct., QC's Autodrome Chaudiere. The following Saturday, July 31 is the third annual $10,000-to-win Midsummer Classic 250 at White Mountain Motorsports Park. Saturday, August 7 is the ACT-sanctioned C$10,000-to-win Bacon Bowl 200 at Autodrome Chaudiere. Although the Bacon Bowl is a non-point event, officials are discussing potential bonus programs for Tour teams that make the trip.

Following a break, ACT makes its lone 2021 stop at Maine's Oxford Plains Speedway on Saturday, August 28 as part of the "Night Before the Oxford 250" program. A second trip to Thunder Road is in store the following Sunday, September 5 for the 43rd Labor Day Classic.

To conclude the month of September, ACT is bringing back one of its most storied traditions. On Saturday, September 25, White Mountain Motorsports Park will host the Fall Foliage 200 with a $5,000 winner's purse. It becomes the fifth different home track for the event, which was last contested in 2016 at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway.

The non-point, $10,000-to-win 59th Vermont Milk Bowl at Thunder Road is next on the card. ACT then crowns its 2020 champion at Masschusetts' Seekonk Speedway on Saturday, October 23. The PASS Super Late Models and Tri-Track Open Modified Series are also on the Seekonk card with a trio of "Haunted 100" features.

The full ACT schedule can be found at www.acttour.com/schedule.

The 2021 ACT Late Model rules are also posted on the Tour website at www.acttour.com/rules. More information, including the full-season entry form, will be released in the coming weeks.

An Open Letter to White Mountain
Teams, Fans, Staff, & Sponsors
Hello all,

We hope you're doing well as the 2020 racing season grows smaller in the rearview. It was an eventful year in many ways, but ultimately one that we think points towards a bright future at White Mountain Motorsports Park.

Like every track in the region, the White Mountain season got off to a late start. The COVID-19 pandemic put everything on standstill beginning in mid-March, and for many weeks, there was no clear answer on when racing might start. It was certainly a tough spot to be in with everyone ready to race and no one having a place to.

In many ways, White Mountain was one of the luckier tracks in the area. We were able get the season going earlier than most with a pay-per-view doubleheader at the start of June, and then we were allowed to go to 50 percent fan capacity the following weekend. That quick one-two got us started, and with some on-the-fly scheduling, we were able to contest a full season's worth of events.

None of that would have mattered, though, if all of you hadn't been there to support it. As such, we need to thank all of you. We'll start with the teams and fans that rolled through the gates every week. Given the circumstances, it would have been totally understandable if attendance dropped. Instead, support for White Mountain Motorsports Park grew. When we took over the track for 2019, we understood potential growth could be a lengthy process. The 2020 season exceeded our expectations on that front and points to potentially bigger things come 2021.

Both our teams and fans also showed amazing understanding as things shifted throughout the year. We made a lot schedule changes and added several because we wanted to give as many series and divisions as possible a place to race. This sometimes meant shifting when the local divisions raced, and sometimes with only a couple weeks' notice. Everyone went with the flow as well as we could have expected and banded together to make each event a success.

You also did a great job with the various health and safety requirements, which including the face mask mandate going into effect midseason. We certainly understand why these were put in place, but we also needed your buy-in for everything to work. Our supporters bought in and produced a healthy, safe season without any known COVID-19 incidents connected to the track.

A thank-you also goes to our staff and officials, who put in countless hours to make sure each event went off without a hitch. We have a great group of people at White Mountain who love racing and also take their jobs seriously. They kept each event running smoothly regardless of the circumstances. Most nights, the racing was completed in three hours or less, and our staff keeping things moving along is a big part of that.

The sponsors who support White Mountain also deserve a big thank-you. The financial investment for putting one's name on an event, division, billboard, or award is a big deal. These companies see the value of auto racing and recognized that it was still there even despite the economic hardships many of them faced due to the pandemic. They put their faith in White Mountain, and we are certainly grateful for that. Please return the favor by supporting them with your business as much as you are able to.

We will briefly touch on what's next for the track. As things stand, we are postponing the Banquet of Champions until the spring. Although we did explore the possibility of holding a banquet under the current guidelines, we've decided to wait and see if the situation is more favorable some months from now.

We're now at work figuring out the tentative 2021 schedule. Some things will almost certainly be back, including the Tiger Triple Crown, multiple ACT and PASS visits, and the various specials for the weekly divisions. We're also talking with other series that visited in 2020, including, the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, NEMST, and NELCAR about the 2020 outlook. Another thing we're exploring is a big season-ending event in the vein of the Milk Bowl or the World Series. We'll look at our options and see if it can be worked in around other events in the region.

The schedule should be out by mid-December, followed shortly by the rules. From there, it will be a waiting game for us just like with our supporters. We encourage everyone to take proper precautions to remain healthy and safe throughout the winter, as keeping COVID-19 cases low will certainly help the outlook for racing in 2021. Until then, thank you once again for your support in 2020, and we hope to see all of you again soon.

Regards,

Cris Michaud, White Mountain Motorsports Park managing partner

Sponsors Joining WMMP
Family in Force
N. Woodstock, NH - When the 2020 White Mountain Motorsports Park (WMMP) season finally begins, the new names won't just be limited to the pits and grandstands. Nearly a dozen new sponsors from around the region have joined the WMMP family for 2020 or expanded their current role to help present the 28th season of "Thunder in the Mountains".

The group of new companies and organizations run the gamut with a list that includes equipment dealers, parts stores, banks, and schools. Each is committing to the growth that began in late 2019 and is expected to continue in 2020.

"We're flattered that so many companies have joined to help make the coming season possible," WMMP managing partner Cris Michaud said. "It shows they believe in what our teams, fans, and staff have committed to. We look forward to building these new relationships throughout the season while also making our existing partnerships stronger than ever."

As previously announced, Jon Parks Tractor Sales of Lancaster, NH and New England Racing Fuel of Burlington, CT are two of the new companies on board for 2020. Jon Parks Tractor, an outdoor power equipment retailer, is sponsoring the Flying Tiger Triple Crown Series scheduled for May 30, June 27, and August 22. New England Racing Fuel and Sunoco Race Fuels have been named the Official Fuel of WMMP.

NAPA, along with NAPA Auto Parts of Whitefield and Littleton, have also signed on for 2020. The NAPA trio has added their name to the Spring Green 120 on June 13, which is the first of two visits for the American-Canadian Tour (ACT).

Another new event sponsor added to the mix in 2020 is H.K. Powersports of Laconia. The powersports equipment dealer is presenting the season's first visit for the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models slated for May 17. They also will have a weekly billboard at the track.

Meanwhile, 7-Eleven of Lincoln is increasing their involvement in 2020 after a wildly successful partnership last year. The famed convenience store will attach their name to the Spring Board 100 on May 23 and the Dwarf Car Special on August 15. The Dwarf Cars officially became the 7-Eleven Dwarf Cars midway through 2019, and the coming season will continue this sponsorship.

Optical Expressions of Berlin, VT is also growing their WMMP presence. The company already had a billboard at the track, and in 2020, race winners each week will visit Optical Expressions Victory Lane. Passumpic Bank is stepping up, too, becoming the official sponsor of the weekly 50/50 drawing.

White Mountains Community College, which has sponsored multiple WMMP drivers over the years, now adds a track program to its list of support. Before each event, WMMP will recognize the White Mountains Community College Driver of the Week. The award goes to one driver across all divisions who turned in the most noteworthy performance at the previous event.

Several new companies have signed on for billboards and contingency programs, too. O'Reilly Auto Parts and J.P. Sicard Inc. will now have billboards on display each week while Bassett Wheels plans to award product certificates in the Late Model and Flying Tiger division.

These new agreements come on top of nearly every existing track sponsor renewing for 2020. All division sponsors will return, including the Foley Oil & Propane, Wells River Chevrolet, Woodsville Guaranty Savings Bank, and Dads 4 By Tool & Supply. Foley Oil also remains as sponsor of the Independence Day weekend event while Coca-Cola Beverages Northeast  again presents the New Hampshire Governor's Cup. Caron Fabrication is back as an event sponsor but will switch to the Labor Day weekend event that features the return of the Modified Racing Series.

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.
