Over 70 American Canadian Tour (ACT) teams will convene at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on August 17-18 to practice for the upcoming ACT Invitational during the SYLVANIA 300 weekend.
The two full days of testing will be divided among the 70 invited teams. With just eight teams currently guaranteed spots in the increased 43 car field, the practice session will be crucial in deciding which drivers will get the at-large invite into the ACT Invitational.
“There is a limit on how many teams we can invite in a season and this year has been particularly difficult as we try to expand into the weekly tracks more than we did a year ago,” said Tom Curley, President of the American Canadian Tour. “There were several teams on the bubble last year after the practice sessions, and in fact two of the top-three finishers from last year’s events were so impressive that we invited them as a result of the practice sessions. Ontario’s 16 year old star Brandon Watson and Barre, Vt. native Nick Sweet used the practice sessions as a way to get invited to the Invitational and certainly proved they were assets to the inaugural event.”
The ACT Invitational is the only superspeedway on the ACT schedule and will be part of Saturday’s exciting triple header. The series will race immediately following the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series on Saturday, September 18.
