Waterbury, Vt. – As invitations rolled out for the 4th Annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational this week, Late Model teams watched as their competitors and friends were called to the big stage. With the big race just over a week away, the final 6 competitors to fill out the 43-car starting grid have been announced.

White Mountain Motorsports Park superstar Quinny Welch has received his invitation to the event, after just missing the podium in 2011 with a fourth place finish. Welch, a former champion of White Mountain Motorsports Park, is confident in his chances.

“Our final points race at White Mountain runs right after this race,” said Welch, currently number 2 in the local point standings. “We might miss it though. When I finish on the podium at New Hampshire, I might be there awhile,” he grinned.

ACT regular Jimmy Linardy will cut his teeth on the “Magic Mile” as he received his invitation, as well as Canaan Fair Speedway regular Bruce Jaycox. Former NASCAR Busch Series driver Tom Carey, Jr., and former ACT regular Pete Yetman join the list of prestigious candidates, and another local team – that of the Mad River Valley’s Brooks Clark – will take a shot to get into New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s famous victory lane.

“This is really the highlight of our year,” said Clark, fresh off a career day at Thunder Road’s Bond Auto Labor Day Classic. “It will be so cool for us -a local team - to say we’ve had the chance to race at the Magic Mile.”

The Bond Auto ACT Invitational rolls of on Saturday, September 22 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Post time is 4:30pm .
