Sean Kennedy of Dunrobin, Ontario won the Toromont CAT 100 at his hometrack, Capital City Speedway. Kennedy took the lead from another local Matt Moffiitt on lap 25 and never looked back. The Capital City Speedway regulars used their experience on the third-mile oval to their advantage and two of them finished in the top five.
2008 ACT Tour Champion Patrick Laperle won a late battle with Jonathan Urlin to capture the second place position. Urlin came home third, followed by Matt Moffitt, and Yvon Bedard rounded out the top five. Last week's winner, Donald Theetge finished sixth, chased to the line by Daniel Descoste, Pier-Luc Ouellette, Brandon Watson, and Ken Baird finished in the top ten.
Unofficially, nine cars finished on the lead lap of the 100 lap event that was slowed by seven cautions. The last caution came on lap 44 as the final 56 laps were run without a yellow.
Kennedy becomes the ninth driver to qualify for the ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway as there have been no repeat winners in the combined nine events on the Series ACT Castrol and the ACT Tour. Kennedy becomes the only qualifier so far from the Province of Ontario. He joins drivers from Vermont, New Hampshire and Quebec.
The Series ACT Castrol will be at Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, Quebec next Saturday, June 20. The ACT Tour will also be running next Saturday as they were rained out at Waterford Speedbowl this weekend.
