Lee USA American Racer Three Stars Announced

 

Waterbury, VT – The American Racer Three Star program will continue in 2016. The program is designed to recognize three teams in no particular order of performance that had outstanding races at ACT US tour events. There are no specific criteria for deciding who might receive the award of a free American Racer Tire (value $125.00), but a special effort by a team, exceptional race, just plain old hard luck, or other accepted reason to give the award is used to decide the recipients. 

The three stars are chosen by officials and winners will receive certificates for the use of a free American Racer tire at a future Tour race of their choosing during 2016.

The awarding of the stars does not allow for anybody in the top three to receive the recognition. Again this week it would be difficult not to recognize the outstanding effort, strategies, and excitement that Scott Payea brought with his RPM team victory. Payea joined Wayne Helliwell Jr., Ray Parent, Alex Labbe, Quinny Welch, and Todd Davis who made the 30th opening day at Lee one of the most exciting races during the long history of ACT at Lee USA.

Eddie MacDonald Races in His NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Season Opener at Bristol

Eddie MacDonald and the Grimm Racing Team will open the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East season in the 5th annual Pittlite 125 at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, April 16. Eddie Mac will pilot the Grimm Construction/Multiple Sclerosis Chevy in the first of the five-race partial schedule the team will compete in this season.

Eddie Mac has achieved great success on “The World’s Fastest Half-Mile” posting a win in 2014, a seventh in 2013, and an impressive sixth place finish after recovering from a flat tire in last year’s race with the Rowley, Mass. veteran driver saying, “We love racing at Bristol and feel we have a chance to win every time we come here. We had a great car last year but got a flat (lap 49) to go a lap down but we came all the way from the rear to post a sixth place finish. Rollie (LaChance) has a great set up for Bristol so we hope we can run up front and be there at the end.”

Thirty cars are entered in the highly competitive series comprised of many Sprint Cup-affiliated teams, yet the small team based in Newburyport, Mass. continues to raise eyebrows despite competing in a partial schedule. The #71 finished last season with a solid second place finish at Dover International Speedway and hope to carry that momentum this weekend. Along with Bristol and Dover (Sept. 30), the Grimm Construction Chevy will race at Stafford Motor Speedway (Ct.) on June 17, New Hampshire Motor Speedway onJuly 16, and Iowa Speedway on July 29. Eddie Mac will also compete in many, if not all of the scheduled American-Canadian Tour races.

“We are really looking forward to this race and hope to win in front of all our families and friends,” said Eddie Mac. “My parent’s, Judy and Red, will be celebrating their 30th season owning and operating Lee. It would be awesome to win this for them for everything they have done for me. They haven’t put any pressure on me to win other than my father expecting me to win every race, but I know it would mean a lot to them.”

Following last season’s finale in the Fall Brawl at Speedway 51 the #17 Freddie Peterson owned Hancock Electric/Exit Realty Chevy needed extensive body repairs with Eddie and the crew spending a lot of shop time getting the car back in shape with Eddie saying, “We had to replace all the body panels, nerf bars and just about everything else you could think of but it looks great and we think it will be fast once we hit the track. The guys worked hard getting everything done. Joe St. Jacques did a great job with metal and tin and John Tiernan did his usual great job with the paint and lettering. Rob Drandson took care of all the welding. Herbie Wing and Dick Casey were the guys taking everything apart and putting it all back together. Rollie and I have been putting the final touches in for the set up so we are ready to go.”
