The two most dominant drivers in American-Canadian Tour (ACT) Late Model stock car history will team up in 2009 under the RPM Motorsports banner for car owner and crew chief Rick Paya of Georgia, VT. Five-time ACT Late Model Tour Champion Brian Hoar has joined the team to race the full schedule, seeking his first Tour title in nine years. His teammate, on a limited basis, will be seven-time ACT Champion Jean-Paul Cyr.
“I am very excited to have this opportunity and to race for another ACT championship,” said Hoar, who won his first title in 1993 before taking four straight from 1997-2000. “Rick has been a very successful crew chief for a long time, and he’s already had a lot of success in a short amount of time as a car owner; I’m very confident in his team. And for me, it’s pretty cool that I get to be a teammate to Jean, somebody that I really have a lot of respect for.”
