JOHNNY CLARK WINS
THE NORTHEAST CLASSIC
In the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Model National Championship race at the Northest Classic, Hallowell, ME's Johnny Clark got his first "Magic Mile" win after a 50-lap barnburner. Clark, the multi-time PASS champion and reigning Oxford 250 winner, first grabbed the lead from Turner, ME's Ben Rowe on lap eight. Clark paced the field until the caution flag on lap 24 for Zig Geno's spin, which saw polesitter Brandon Barker get the jump on the restart.

After a competition caution on lap 30 for two fresh tires and adjustments, the action really heated up. The yellow came back out two circuits later for debris, and on this restart, Derek Griffith made a three-wide move entering turn to take over the point. In the process, 11-time NHMS winner Eddie MacDonald got shuffled out of second spot just as he looked ready to challenge for the victory.

Jeff White then spun on the backstretch with 12 laps to go for the fourth and final caution. This time, it was Griffith getting shuffled as Barker again leapt off the outside. Barker led the 39th circuit before Herman, ME's Mike Hopkins -- who'd started dead-last in the 25-car field -- blew underneath him to pace lap 40.

Once again, Windham, ME's Barker found a way back to the front, going around Hopkins entering turn one the very next time around. Clark followed Barker and looked multiple times to his inside over the next six laps. With four laps to go, Clark got the run he needed off turn two. The veteran snatched the lead entering turn three and then slammed the door on Barker's crossover attempt. Clark, Barker, Hopkins, and D.J. Shaw then ran under a blanket until the final lap, when Hopkins' bid for second let Clark scoot away for the victory.

Although Hopkins came up short of second on the track, he inherited the spot in post-race technical inspection when Baker was disqualified for an engine infraction. Shaw became the new third-place finisher. Jeremie Whorff, Ben Rowe, Dennis Spencer, Jake Matheson, Alex Labbe, Griffith, and Rowland Robinson Jr. finished fourth through 10th.

The PASS SLMs plus the PASS MODS are back in action at Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday, April 25th.

Hebert Finally Tastes NHMS
Victory at Northeast Classic

Santos, and Cayer Take Thrilling Wins;
Renfrew & Ferreira Also Triumph
Loudon, NH -- Reigning American-Canadian Tour (ACT) champion Jimmy Hebert of Williamstown, VT finally scored a long-awaited victory at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) on Sunday, April 18 in the inaugural Northeast Classic. Hebert was awarded the win following post-race technical inspection, giving the veteran a triumph he'd been chasing for his entire decade-long Late Model career.

The now eight-time ACT Late Model Tour winner was leading the event with three laps to go before getting passed by Center Conway, NH's D.J. Shaw. However, Shaw was later disqualified for a carburetor infraction. This gave Hebert the win and a $5,000 top prize on a busy afternoon at "The Magic Mile".

East Bridgewater, MA's Ryan Kuhn started on the pole and led the first four laps. Shaw then passed him from the fifth starting spot and drove away from the field. Hebert and New Salem, MA's Tom Carey III followed Shaw around Kuhn, who was eventually felled by a brake problem. The duo could only watch Shaw drive into the afternoon sun until a competition caution on lap 27 for right-side tires and adjustments.

Shaw pulled away again after the restart until Jimmy Renfrew Jr. smacked the backstretch wall with 11 laps to go. The leader chose the inside for the restart, but Hebert made a charge on the outside, taking the top spot after two laps of side-by-side racing.

Hebert held the lead through one more caution on lap 43 for Dylan Payea's stalled automobile. Shaw, though, had the faster long-run car and got below Hebert in turn three for the top spot with laps winding down. The joy was short-lived, however, and Hebert was named the victor in his first Late Model race driving a Ford.

Carey moved up into the second spot following the disqualification after a late battle with Ben Rowe. Turner, ME's Rowe became the new third-place finisher. Mark Jenison, Derek Ming, Stephen Donahue, Trenton Goodrow, Erick Sands, Robby Gordon Douglas, and Payea rounded out the top-10.

Franklin, MA's Bobby Santos III won at New Hampshire Motor Speedway for the third straight time in a breathtaking 50-lap Tour-type Modified Open. Santos was running second to Harvard, MA's Matt Swanson when the race's only caution flew at lap 25 for teams to change right-side rubber.

On the restart, Swanson spun his tires and fell back. Santos assumed the lead, and the race transformed from a sedate affair to another "Magic Mile" classic. Santos and early leader Mike Christopher Jr. double-swapped the lead on three straight laps, with Christopher taking the lead entering turn one and Santos pulling the crossover move in turn three. They pulled the same sequence on laps 33 and 34, and on the fifth "double-cross", polesitter Chase Dowling stole second place from Christopher.

Dowling then flexed his muscle, passing by Santos to lead laps 35 and 36. The two then officially exchanged the lead five more times over the next six laps. Even then, there were double-swaps again on laps 46 and 47. Ronnie Williams followed Santos to the inside for second with three to go, and although Dowling was able to repass him, the sequence cost Dowling enough time that he couldn't run Santos back down. All told, the 50-lap feature had 9 official lead changes plus 16 more unofficial lead changes.

Santos, Dowling, and Williams were the top-three finishers in that order. Eric Goodale and Christopher rounded out the top-5.

Contoocook, NH's Emerson Cayer recovered from a stumble on a late-race restart to win the 20-lap Northeast Mini Stock Tour feature. Cayer was way out in front with five laps to go when Ray King pounded the sand barrel at the pit road entrance, drawing the race's only caution and forcing a lengthy clean-up.

When the event when back green, Cayer was slow to get up to speed and fell to fourth. Defending NEMST champion Desmond Skilling eventually wrestled the lead away from Nick Anderson while Cayer tried to come back. Cayer would lose ground on the long straightaways, but make it all back and then some in the turns.

As the field took the white flag, Cayer was back up to second, and he went to the outside of Skillings in turns one and two. As they drag-raced down the back stretch, Berlin, NH's Cody Leblanc dove inside three-wide. Skillings and Leblanc barely touched entering turn three -- but it was enough for Cayer to scoot around the high side and take the victory.

Antrim, NH's Skillings held off Leblanc for second. Anderson, Mike Viens, Jacob Gustafson, Nick Maniatis, Cris King, Jesse Copp, and Justin King completed the top-10.

Candia, NH's Jimmy Renfrew Jr. earned some redemption after his ACT Late Model misfortune by winning the 8-cylinder Street Stock Open. Renfrew utterly dominated the event, going wire-to-wire in the 25-lap feature.

Four cautions slowed the field in the first nine laps, including a yellow on lap seven after Ryan Waterman and Jordan Russell pounded the turn-one wall. The resulting delay to repair damage to said wall was the only thing that could slow Renfrew down. A tight battle developed for the second-through-fifth spots during the second half of the race, but Renfrew was long gone, winning by more than nine seconds.

West Newfield, ME's Devin McConologue fended off Milford, NH's Steve Dickey for the runner-up position. Corey Hutchings, Kris Watson, Kyle Gero, T.J. Cochrane, Adam Maynard, Ryan Phillips, and Andrew Morin also took home top-10 finishes.

Lowell, MA's Jason Ferreira dominated the 25-lap EXIT Realty Pro Truck Challenge feature to win the series' first-ever NHMS visit. Ferreira started on the pole only to see East Windsor, CT's Jim Boyle get the jump at the initial green flag.

After Ferreira held off a brief challenge from Warwick, RI's Ryan Vanasse for second, his truck suddenly came to life. He swung underneath Boyle on lap three to retake the top spot, then pulled away down the stretch to win the caution-free event.

Boyle parried Vanasse's charges to take the second spot while Vanasse completed the podium. Andy Lindeman and former champion Gerard Giordano Jr. came home fourth and fifth.

The ACT Late Model Tour is next in action at Barre, VT's Thunder Road Speedbowl on Sunday, May 2 for the Community Bank N.A. 150. The touring stars join Thunder Road's Maplewood/Irving Oil Late Models for 150 laps at the "Nation's Site of Excitement". The Lenny's Shoe & Apparel Flying Tigers, RK Miles Street Stocks, and Burnett Scrap Metals Road Warriors complete the card. Post time is 1:30pm.

Northeast Classic Moved
To Sunday, April 18
Practice Day Now Set for Saturday
Due to Snowy Friday Forecast
EVENT SCHEDULE FOR NE CLASSIC
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME -- The inaugural running of the Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway has been delayed for one more day. American-Canadian Tour (ACT), Pro All Stars Series (PASS), and New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) officials have postponed the event until Sunday, April 18 due to weather concerns. The open practice has also been moved back a day until Saturday, April 17.

The decision was made because of a Friday weather forecast in Loudon that calls for snow mixed with rain. However, temperatures are supposed to get progressively warmer throughout the weekend, reaching the high 50s on Sunday afternoon. With open weekends on the NHMS, ACT, and PASS schedules at a premium, officials determined that moving everything back one day was the best solution.

All scheduled times will remain the same apart from the date change. Northeast Classic qualifying begins at 11:00am on Sunday, April 18 with the first feature rolling out at 1:30pm. The pits will open at 8:00am on Saturday and 7:00am on Sunday.

Northeast Classic camping has also been pushed back one day. Campers may enter the grounds on Friday and Saturday. Some camping slots are still available. Visit www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic  or call (802) 244-6963 for more information.

General admission tickets and pit passes will be sold at the track only. Grandstand tickets for Sunday are $30 for adults and $10 for kids ages 12 and under. Pit passes are $50 for Sunday only or $75 for Saturday and Sunday. Face masks and social distancing are required per New Hampshire state guidelines.

"We certainly didn't expect snow this week given the recent weather, but that's the Northeast for you," PASS president Tom Mayberry said. "Fortunately, we already had a Sunday weather date built into the schedule. By moving everything back one day, we can give teams and fans the race weekend they expected while still getting home in time for work on Monday."

The Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway goes green this Sunday, April 18. A six-division card features $5,000-to-win events for the ACT Late Model Tour, 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. General admission is $30 for adults and $10 for kids ages 12 and under. Tickets will be sold at the track on race day. A live pay-per-view is available on Speed51.TV for $29.99. Visit www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic for the complete schedule, registration forms, and other info.

Championship Defenses
Beginning in Earnest
at Northeast Classic
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME -- The inaugural Northeast Classic debuts this Sunday, April 18 at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Although the prestige and big payday of winning at "The Magic Mile" is foremost in many racers' minds, the card is also an early proving ground in five different major regional touring series.

The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model Tour and Northeast Mini Stock Tour (NEMST) have their first point-counting events of the season on Saturday. For the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models, it's their second North Series and third National Series events of the year. The EXIT Realty Pro Truck Challenge has its second event of 2021 after they and PASS North debuted at the Thompson Speedway Icebreaker That means for defending champions Jimmy Hebert (ACT), D.J. Shaw (PASS North), Mike Hopkins (PASS National), Desmond Skillings (NEMTS), and Duane Noll (Pro Trucks), a strong run at the Northeast Classic would put them in great early position for a championship defense.

In the process, they get the chance to shine at New England's only superspeedway. NHMS is the region's biggest motorsports mecca, and the Northeast Classic allows anyone from touring legends to low-buck weekly warriors an opportunity to race there.

in 2020 and begins his defense at a track where he has three
straight second-place finishes. (Daniel Holben photo)

"I think events like the Northeast Classic are good for short track racing in general," Williamstown, VT's Hebert said. "It's good for sponsors because you can get them recognized on a bigger stage. We've seen the success the Dirt Track Nationals had at Bristol, and then the Short Track Nationals of the last couple years. I think if more regions around the country started doing things like this, it would be good for their individual series, and it would be good for different tracks allowing small teams to compete in big shows like that."

Hebert is coming off the season of his life, posting two ACT Tour wins and a perfect record of top-10 finishes. It's no secret how badly he wants to add an NHMS winner's trophy to his collection. Hebert has three straight runner-up finishes at "The Magic Mile" dating back to the days of the ACT Invitational. Now that the Hebert Excavation team finally has the championship they've been dreaming of, they can go for broke at the track they crave the most.

"I remember going to the very first ACT Invitational (in 2009) back when I was racing Tigers and watching from the stands," Hebert said. "Me and my dad looked at each other and said, 'we've got to win this race someday.' Obviously, we don't have the Invitational anymore, but luckily we still get to race there."

"Starting the season at NHMS will actually be better for us," Hebert continued. "Last year we couldn't be really aggressive with the setup or my driving because I had a point cushion I was trying to protect going into the last race. So we had to go about things a lot differently, whereas at the Invitational, there were no points, so you just went for it. We've won the championship now...so there's no points lead to protect this time. We're going to go for it."

Many other ACT stars look like potential NHMS winners and championship contenders. Center Conway, NH's D.J. Shaw and Turner, ME's Ben Rowe, both multi-time PASS champions, begin full-season ACT campaigns at NHMS. Shaw finished second in ACT points for 2020 while Rowe won the season finale. Warwick, MA's Tom Carey III has multiple top-10s at NHMS while N. Darmouth, MA's Derek Gluchacki is aiming for greater things after winning the 2020 ACT Rookie of the Year award. Ryan Kuhn, Bobby Therrien, Woody Pitkat, Stephen Donahue, Jesse Switser, Dylan Payea, and others fill out an impressive early entry list.

On the PASS side, Shaw got a solid start at Connecticut's Thompson Speedway last weekend in his bid for a fourth straight PASS North title. Hopkins, meanwhile, began his PASS National Championship defense with a pair of podium finishes at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway. Both know a win at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, with its $5,000 prize, would be a big boost to their title dreams and bank account.

They'll both have to beat Rowley, MA's Eddie "The Outlaw" MacDonald to win this weekend. PASS has held two previous NHMS events in its long history, and MacDonald won both. Hudson, NH's Derek Griffith has won all three PASS-sanctioned events this year, meaning at least one perfect streak must end. Johnny Clark, Travis Benjamin, Gabe Brown, Ben Ashline, Curtis Gerry, and Ben Ashline are among those trying to end the run for both.

In the North East Mini Stock Tour, Antrim, NH's Desmond Skillings begins his title defense. Skilling won the 2020 championship by a single point thanks to a victory in the season finale. Another former champion, Berlin, NH's Cody Leblanc, is one of his likely challengers. So is Contoocook, NH's Emerson Cayer, who has multiple top-5 finishes at the track.

Defending EXIT Realty Truck Series champion Duane Knoll started his campaign with a fourth-place finish at Thompson Speedway. However, 2019 champion Gerard "G-Rod" Giordano Jr. sits on top of the standings after edging Ryan Vanasse for the win. Young Emma Monahan is off to a strong start, too.

Although the Open Tour-type Modified and Open Street Stock events don't have points on the line, there are still some big names chasing big prize money. The expected Modified entry list includes many stars from the Thompson Outlaw Open Modified Series opener last weekend, including top-10 finishers Bobby Santos III, Craig Lutz, Sam Rameau, and Mike Christopher Jr. Other early entries are recent Martinsville Speedway winner Eric Goodale, veteran Charles Pasteryak, and rising youngster Chase Dowling.

On the 8-Cylinder Street Stock side, you have Danielson, CT's Ryan Waterman, who just missed the winner's check at the Thompson Icebreaker. Fellow top runners from that event such as Kyle Gero and Jimmy Renfrew Jr. are planning for a second round. Fans should also watch out for Corey Hutchings, who won the Street Stock Showdown Series event at NHMS in 2017.

The Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway makes its long-awaited debut this Sunday, April 18. A six-division card features $5,000-to-win events for the ACT Late Model Tour, PASS Super Late Models, and Tour-type Modifieds.

Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME -- Auto racing fans around the world will get to enjoy the inaugural Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday, April 18. The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) have been reached with Speed51.TV to broadcast the event live via pay-per-view from "The Magic Mile".

A six-division card is on tap for the motorsports extravaganza that has been more than a year in in the making. Speed51.TV will have it all, including 50-lap, $5,000-to-win shootouts for the ACT Late Model Tour, PASS Super Late Models, and Tour-type Modifieds. They're joined by the EXIT Realty Pro Truck Challenge, North East Mini Stock Tour, and an 8-Cylinder Street Stock Open.

The pay-per-view costs $29.99 and is available for purchase at www.speed51.tv/products/ppv-northeast-classic-at-nhms-april-17-2021. The broadcast is part of a multi-year agreement with PASS to showcase the series and its partners for viewers everywhere.

"Thanks to Speed51.TV, the debut of the Northeast Classic has gotten even bigger," PASS president Tom Mayberry said. ""People have been looking forward to the Northeast Classic since we first announced it in late 2019. Now fans can watch it live even if they can't make it to New Hampshire. Or they can buy the broadcast and watch later if they have to work during the day. That sort of flexibility is means everyone who wants can watch some great racing on the Magic Mile."

"It's a huge thing for us as a team and our sponsors," Kulwicki Driver Development Program finalist Ryan Kuhn added. "It helps to really promote them, especially with Speed51 broadcasting. I think there'll be a lot of viewership. We're going to have a lot of friends and family watching, and people around the country are going to be watching this event. It's really good to promote these drivers and series, and to advertise our sponsors -- especially if we run up front on race day."

The entry list for each series on the card is full of big names. More than 30 drivers are officially committed to the ACT Late Model Tour event, including defending ACT champion Jimmy Hebert, recent Hickory Motor Speedway double-podium finisher Ben Rowe, 2017 ACT Invitational winner Woody Pitkat, former ACT Rookie of the Year Dylan Payea, and 2017 Thunder Road Late Model champion Bobby Therrien.

The Northeast Classic is the opener for a 12-event point-counting ACT schedule with nearly $50,000 worth of season-ending awards. Along the way, six ACT-sanctioned events will pay at least $5,000 to win, making it one of the richest seasons in the 30-year history of the series.

It all starts at New England's only superspeedway. New Hampshire Motor Speedway is a track that almost every racer in the area wants to compete at. Capturing a win would be even more meaningful.

"Winning at New Hampshire would be huge," East Bridgewater, MA's Kuhn said. "That's one of my bucket-list races. I circled this one and the Oxford 250 on my calendar -- they're the two races I want to win really, really bad. Loudon's been my favorite track and probably my best track. We've always run good no matter what we've taken there. We've been there three times, had three top-10s, and had a shot to win the ACT race there last year. Hopefully we can do that again and this time park it in Victory Lane."

The PASS Super Late Models, meanwhile, have nearly 40 drivers confirmed for their 50-lap event. They include five-time and defending PASS North champion D.J. Shaw, two-time PASS North champion Travis Benjamin, multi-time NHMS winner Eddie MacDonald, and 2019 PASS National champion Mike Hopkins. This year's event is part of the PASS National Championship, attracting even more drivers who want wrestle the crown from Hopkins.

Rowe, Shaw, and Jake Johnson are among those with official plans to run both the ACT and PASS features. Kuhn hopes to as well, though his PASS entry is dependent on repairing a blown engine recently suffered during a doubleheader at North Carolina's Hickory Motor Speedway.

The Tour-type Modified entry list includes former NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Bobby Santos III, multi-time NASCAR winner Craig Lutz, respected Modified veteran Charlie Pasteryak, and rising star Chase Dowling. Eight-cylinder Street Stockers such as Ryan Waterman, Kyle Gero, Jimmy Renfrew Jr., and Adam Maynard will battle for the $1,000 top prize in their open show.

The Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway opens the Northern New England racing season on Saturday, April 17. A six-division card features $5,000-to-win events for the ACT Late Model Tour, 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. A live pay-per-view is available on Speed51.TV for $29.99. Visit www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic for the complete schedule, camping registration forms, and other info.

Northeast Classic Drawing The
Biggest Names in Regional Racing
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME -- The inaugural Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway is just over a week away. On Saturday, April 17, some of the biggest names known to motorsports fans in the region will converge on "The Magic Mile" for a six-division card that offers something for everybody.

American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) official originally planned to debut the Northeast Classic in 2020. The event was pushed back a year due to the COVID-19 pandemic -- but the delay has not dampened the enthusiasm of teams or fans.

On the contrary, even more buzz now surrounds the New Hampshire racing extravaganza. One glance at the entry lists reveals many of the region's racing "blue bloods" along with rising stars getting the chance to show off their talents -- which they'll do in front of an international audience on Speed51.TV.

The 50-lap, $5,000-to-win Tour-type Modified shootout has received commitments from numerous open-wheel stars. Franklin, MA's Bobby Santos III is the name that will catch the most attention. Santos has five NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour wins at the track, including last year's Musket 200. With just 50 laps on the card this time, Santos and others will have to take a different path to victory.

This year, Santos is returning to the cockpit of the #44 Tinio Racing team for which he's posted a dozen Whelen Modified Tour wins. The duo reunites at this weekend's Thompson Icebreaker 125 as a tune-up for NHMS.

"I think we've just got to be better right away at the beginning of the race," Santos said of the 50-lap Classic. "I know a lot of times, we've made adjustments partway through the race and gotten better. But you just have to be prepared to be ready to race right away and be in position."

"I've been looking forward to coming and doing these races (with the Tinio's)," Santos added. Unfortunately, I didn't get to race at Thompson last year. It feels like forever since I've raced here. I've definitely missed it. I'm just excited to be back in a Modified and race with these guys. We've had a lot of fun racing together."

As always, Santos will have fierce challengers. Riverhead, NY's Eric Goodale, who just captured a crown jewel victory at Virginia's Martinsville Speedway, is coming to New Hampshire. So is defending Thompson World Series winner Craig Lutz in a Goodie Motorsports team car. Martinsville runner-up Sam Rameau, multi-time Modified winner Mike Christopher Jr., and "Ole Blue" pilot Matt Swanson are a few other notables planning to roll through the gates.

The ACT Late Model Tour and PASS Super Late Models also have 50-lap, $5,000-to-win Northeast Classic showdowns. The ACT event is the opener of the 2021 championship season. Williamstown, VT's Jimmy Hebert begins his title defense at a track he wants badly to add to his trophy case. Hebert has finished runner-up in his last three NHMS starts, making the Hebert Excavation team even hungrier for victory.

A large field is standing in Hebert's way. Two multi-time PASS champions, Ben Rowe and D.J. Shaw, are bidding for victory. Both are planning the full ACT schedule this year and know the importance of a good start.

The last three ACT Rookies of the Year -- Dylan Payea, Kulwicki Driver Development Program finalist Ryan Kuhn, and Derek Gluchacki -- are also on the entry list. So are Woody Pitkat and Tom Carey III, two Southern New England standouts who are always strong at NHMS. Former Thunder Road champion Bobby Therrien, Busch North Series legend Jamie Aube, defending Riverside Speedway champion Shawn Swallow, and breakout performer Trent Goodrow are four more names expected to take the green flag.

For the PASS Super Late Models, the Northeast Classic is the third event in this year's National Championship. Hudson, NH's Derek Griffith, who swept the first two events at Hickory Motor Speedway, is on the entry list for round three. So are Rowe, Shaw, Johnny, Clark, and Travis Benjamin, multi-time champions each who want another crown.

Rowley, MA's Eddie "The Outlaw" MacDonald, the winner of the last PASS event at NHMS, is expect to try and defend that crown. Curtis Gerry, Jake Johnson, Dennis Spencer, and reigning PASS National champion Mike Hopkins are among those aiming to stop him.

The EXIT Realty Pro Truck Challenge, North East Mini Stock Tour, and 8-Cylinder Street Stock Open complete the card. The Pro Trucks are making what's believed to be their maiden voyage to "The Magic Mile". Defending champion Duane Noll, Dave Koenig, Gerard Giordano Jr., and Ryan Vanasse will get to strut their stuff after opening the 2021 season at this weekend's Thompson Icebreaker.

The North East Mini Stock Tour (NEMST) is returning to NHMS for their 2021 season kick-off. Matthew Kimball, the winner of the last NEMST event at the track in 2019, will be one to watch, as will defending series champion Desmond Skillings. The $1,000-to-win Street Stock Open entry list is growing fast, with 8-cylinder warriors such as Jimmy Renfrew Jr., Corey Hutchings, Ryan Waterman, Kyle Gero, and Jesse Gleason are ready to haul the mail around New England's only superspeedway.

The Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway makes its long-awaited debut on Saturday, April 17. A six-division card features $5,000-to-win events for the ACT Late Model Tour, 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. General admission is $30 for adults and $10 for kids ages 12 and under. Tickets will be sold at the track on race day.

ACT & PASS Release Updated Information
for Icebreaker and Northeast Classic
ENTRY FORMS & RULES FOR EVENTS HERE
Waterbury, VT -- The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) have released the latest round of information for the Thompson Speedway Icebreaker on April 9-11 and the New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) Northeast Classic on April 17. Both events are expected to attract some of the biggest, most talented fields of the year as they kick off the 2020 New England racing season.

As part of the updates, ACT and PASS also have created a new Thompson Outlaw Open Modified Series information page. Teams and fans can visit www.acttour.com/outlaw-open-modifieds for the latest about all six of the big-money events, including the 46th Annual Icebreaker and the $20,000-to-win Thompson 300. This page will be updated throughout the year. The Northeast Classic also has an information page at www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic.

The biggest piece of the puzzle now available is the complete Tour-Type Open Modified rules. The Icebreaker is headlined by a 125-lap, $10,000-to-win Outlaw Open event. The inaugural Northeast Classic includes a 50-lap, $5,000-to-win Modified Open.

Both events will largely follow the Tri-Track Modified Open Series rulebook. Tour-Type Modified cars must follow the 2021 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour, Race of Champions, Modified Racing Series, or Weekly track rules. Certain exceptions are outlined in a PDF on the series information page. Rules may not be combined between series. SK Modified-legal cars may also compete using any carburetor.

A gear rule will also be in place for the Outlaw Open Series and Northeast Classic. The Thompson events require a 4.64 gear for built engines and a 4.52 gear for spec engines. At NHMS, built engines must use a 3.98 maximum and 3.74 minimum gear. The range for spec engines is a 3.83 maximum and 3.63 minimum. No restrictor plate will be required at either track.

Greg Felton, the Head of Race Tech for the Tri-Track Open Modified Series, will serve in the same rule for the Open Modified events at both Thompson and NHMS. He can be reached at (413) 695-2272 or gt.felton@gmail.com with any Modified tech questions.

The Open Modified entry form for the Northeast Classic has also been released. It can be found on the official Northeast Classic page at www.acttour.com/northeast-late-model-classic. The 50-lap event will pay $5,000 to win and $600 to start with almost $29,000 in posted awards. Teams that enter by Thursday, April 1 receive a discount on their entry fee.

The entry form for the $10,000-to-win Icebreaker 125, which opens the Thompson Outlaw Open Modified Series, was recently released and can be found on the series information page. More than a dozen drivers had already entered the event at press time, including six-time NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Doug Coby, multi-time Thompson Speedway champion Keith Rocco, 2020 World Series Modified Open winner Mike Christopher Jr., and four-time Modified Racing Series champion Jon McKennedy. The first 26 teams that file entries will receive a garage stall for the weekend. More information about the rest of the weekend's like-up is expected soon.

Finally, ACT and PASS have released the rules and entry form for the 8-cylinder Street Stock Open at the Northeast Classic. The rules are nearly identical to what was originally planned in 2020, with the only change being that a 3.73 maximum gear is required. The 25-lap Street Stock Open will pay $1,000 to win with a total purse of more than $7,500.

ACT & PASS Confirm
Weekend for Inaugural
Northeast Classic at NHMS
2-Day Event to be Held
Weekend of April 16-18, 2021
SLM ENTRY FORM - NHMS - 4/17/21
PIT STALL RESERVATION FORM 
- NHMS - 4/17/21
Waterbury, VT and Naples, ME -- American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and Pro All Stars Series (PASS) officials have confirmed the dates for the inaugural Northeast Classic at Loudon's New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The long-awaited event will be held on the weekend of April 17-18, 2021.

A two-day schedule is planned with open practice on day one and qualifying/features on day two. Whether the event has a Friday-Saturday or Saturday-Sunday schedule will be determined over the winter.

The Northeast Classic was originally scheduled to debut in April 2020 before ultimately being cancelled due to the outbreak of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. The event was highly-anticipated throughout the region, and this coming April, the first running will finally be held on the "Magic Mile".

"We can't wait to finally get the Northeast Classic off the ground," PASS owner Tom Mayberry said. "The buzz leading up to the expected debut last April was incredible. Unfortunately, world circumstances didn't allow it happen, much to everyone's disappointment. With another year to look forward to it, we think the inaugural Classic will be just as big if not bigger than it would have been."

The event schedule for 2021 is expected to be much the same as what was planned for 2020. A five-division card includes the PASS North Super Late Models, ACT Late Model Tour, a Tour-Type Modified Open, an 8-Cylinder Street Stock Open, and the North East Mini Stock Tour.

Rules, entry forms, and other Northeast Classic information will be released over the coming months. ACT and PASS both expect to finalize their full 2021 schedules soon.
