East Montpelier, Vt. native Joey Laquerre led the way in today’s American-Canadian Tour (ACT) test and tune session with the fastest lap time of 32.029 seconds around “The Magic Mile.”

Joey Laquerre currently sits fifth in the ACT Late Model Tour points standings.  Laquerre finished sixth in last year’s NHMS ACT Invitational.

New Hampshire’s own Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. was also fast today with a lap time of 32.050, a close second behind Laquerre. Brad Leighton of Center Harbor, N.H. dominated the first simulated race of the day.  Leighton is no stranger to running well at NHMS.  He has a total of 18 top-fives and 27 top-10’s.   

The goal of the two day test is to capture one of the coveted at-large bids for the second annual ACT Invitational which is part of an exciting triple-header on Saturday, September 18. They will run immediately following the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series events.
