Waterbury, VT – The American Canadian Tour (ACT) announced the appointment of Michael Stridsberg of Berlin, VT as the new Media Director for both the US touring Series and Thunder Road International Speedbowl. He will replace Nick Bigelow who has handled numerous duties for the two organizations since his graduation from college in 2009. Bigelow studied engineering, and has taken a position with New England Wire Technologies in Lisbon, NH, a developer of wire products.
“Nick has provided ACT and Thunder Road with an outstanding foundation in modernizing our media department, web sites, and handicapping system. His passion was statistics, and he leaves with all ACT records in good order. He handled the majority of the track day duties as head scorer for our companies. His conscientious efforts will be missed,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour, Ltd.
Stridsberg and his family have been around the race business for many years. He has worked the Thunder Road race day pits for the past few years, is familiar with handicapping, and has been a correspondent for Vermont Motorsports Magazine, helping to chronicle various stories and results from races throughout the region. He also will take on the new duty of electronic scoring for both ACT and Thunder Road events.
