Likewise, Eddie Mac has picked up checkered flags in virtually every division to ever hit the Lee high banks, dating back to his early career as a weekly Hobby Stock competitor, right up through the Late Model and Pro Stock ranks, where he was a consistent threat to win whenever he hit the track.
MacDonald was the 2014 winner of the Governor’s Cup, and is expected to be on hand again this year. Eddie has also logged hundreds of laps aboard PASS Super Late Models and NASCAR K&N Series rides at the track he grew up at, owned by his parents Judy and recently-elected NEAR Hall-of-Famer Red. The MacDonalds are celebrating their 30th year of operating Lee USA this season.
The current iteration of ACT Late Models has been in competition 13 times at “New Hampshire’s Center of Speed” for the season-opener, with 12 different winners adding their names to the Governor’s Cup during that time. The only two-time winner was Brian Hoar, who grabbed the checkers in 2011-2012, but has since retired from racing.
