Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. Takes Goodyear Speedweeks Cup Win on ACT’s First Night at New Smyrna Speedway

New Smyrna, FL — Hudson, New Hampshire’s Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. continued his hot streak on the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) with a win in Sunday’s Goodyear Speedweeks Cup feature at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna, Florida. Polewarczyk had to hold off St-Denis, Quebec’s Patrick Laperle for the win.

After starting on the outside pole, Polewarczyk quickly jumped out to a large lead, while Laperle worked his way through the field from his ninth place starting position. A caution on lap 34 gave Laperle his first shot at Polewarczyk. The two battled for the lead before another caution came out on lap 41 for a hard hit into the front stretch wall by East Montpelier, Vermont’s Joey Laquerre.

Polewarczyk gained the advantage in the outside lane on the restart to claim the lead. The two would swap it again before Polewarczyk took over for good on lap 60. Laperle would get to the rear bumper of Polewarczyk several times as they worked their way through lap traffic in the final 40 laps.
