RPM To Field Second ACT Team For Austin Theriault
Multi-time ACT Late Model Tour championship team RPM Motorsports will expand to a two-car operation in 2011. RPM owner Rick Paya announced today that he intends to field a second entry for second-year driver Austin Theriault.
Theriault, of Fort Kent, Maine, will compete full-time on the ACT Tour in 2011 in the RPM Motorsports No. 57vt Ford Fusion.
“I’m really excited to be working with those guys,” said the 16-year-old Theriault, who finished seventh in the series’ overall standings as a rookie last season. “They’ve brought a lot to the ACT series and racing on a whole in this region, and they know a lot more than I do.
“Hopefully, I can draw on that information that they’ve collected over the years and it will make me a better driver.”
RPM owns seven ACT championships, including the last two with driver and seven-time series champion Brian Hoar. Paya is looking forward to having Theriault in the fold.
