american-canadian tour schedule released

BARRE, Vt. —The American-Canadian Tour has released the 2023 schedule for the Vermont-based touring series.

The schedule is highlighted by a continued commitment to partner tracks in Quebec, renewed energy into longstanding iconic events across the Northeast and the return to Connecticut’s Stafford Speedway after a 38-year hiatus.

For the first time since 2021, the American-Canadian Tour will once again head south to start the year with a pair of non-point exhibition events at the famed Hickory Motor Speedway in North Carolina on March 17-18. The first of at least six doubleheaders with the Maine-based Pro All Stars Series (PASS), the twin 125s for the ACT Tour will start the season off.

Kickstarting the points-counting 45th season for the American-Canadian Tour will be the $5,000-to-win Northeast Classic at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on April 15.

The Stars and Cars of the American-Canadian Tour will return to Stafford on April 29 as part of the 51st NAPA Spring Sizzler weekend.

Lee USA Speedway returns to the American-Canadian Tour schedule for the first time in two seasons. The three-eighths-mile Southern New Hampshire oval regains its once annual spot on the schedule with the early season New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 on May 21.

The first weekend in June brings an exciting change for the 48th running of the famed Spring Green as it moves from White Mountain Motorsports Park to Massachusetts’ Seekonk Speedway. The Cement Palace will serve as the sixth different facility to host the annual American-Canadian Tour special with a host of Southern New England’s finest expected to make a run at one of Northern New England’s marquee events on June 3.

August brings the American-Canadian Tour teams their longest race of the season in the sixth annual Milton CAT Midsummer Classic 250 at White Mountain Motorsports Park on August 5.

The $10,000-to-win event has become an ACT crown jewel with over 40 teams attempting to qualify in 2022 and exciting finishes becoming the norm for the extra-distance event. As the Granite State home of ACT Tour racing, White Mountain will also host the $5,000-to-win 45th edition of the Fall Foliage 200 on September 16 alongside the PASS Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds and the Wells River Chevrolet Flying Tigers.

After a successful return in 2022, the American-Canadian Tour will once again wrap up the year at Connecticut’s New London-Waterford Speedbowl on October 21.

“We’re very happy and excited about our 2023 plans,” said ACT managing partner Cris Michaud. “We feel we’ve laid the groundwork for one of the most exciting seasons to date and I’m excited to see what year forty-five brings.”
