Rising star Scott Payea, 26, of Milton, VT, leads the ACT Late Model Tour point standings after the first five events. Payea visited victory lane in the 10th Annual Merchants Bank 150 at Thunder Road in Barre, VT on May 4, and also took top-five finishes at Lee USA (NH) Speedway, Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY, and again at Thunder Road in the Mekkelsen RV Memorial Day Classic on May 25.
