Eddie MacDonald will take the green flag in the Pro All-Star Series opener in the Icebreaker PASS race at Thompson Motorsports Park on Sunday, April 2 in the first of three races scheduled in the month in three different series.  Eddie Mac will also compete in the American Canadian Tour’s Governor’s Cup at his home track Lee USA Speedway on April 9, then head to Bristol Motor Speedway for the K&N Pro Series East event on April 22.

“As you can imagine, we have been extremely busy preparing the cars for three different series but we are looking forward to getting things going and improving on our performance from last season,” said the veteran Rowley, Mass. racer. “We are going to pick and choose the races we run in this season and we hope the flexibility will allow us to better prepare for the races we run. Last year was very hectic trying to run as many races as we did. We were not pleased with our performance in the K&N series and we are re-doubling our efforts to be more successful.” (more…)

For the second year in a row, Eddie MacDonald drove the Go Green Racing Ford in the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Sunday, July 19 to take the checkered flag in 37th place. With DraftDemons.com as the main sponsor, Eddie Mac started 41st and completed 295 of the 301 lap event before a huge crowd at the “Magic Mile.”

“Racing at the Cup level is a life-long dream and to be able to do it two years in a row thanks to owner Archie St. Hilaire and DraftDemons.com owner Mike Alden is fantastic,” said Eddie Mac after the race, “I have so many people to thank for this opportunity. It was a lot of fun to race with the best in the business. Of course I would have liked to finish better but the team was pleased with the run because it helped them out in the point’s race. I guess 42 of the 43 cars finished which is unusual. There are usually more cars than that in the pits during the race. All in all it was a great experience and the crew was great the entire weekend. Archie has a super group of guys on the team. Clinton (Cram-crew chief from Belchertown, Mass.) did everything possible to help me out and I appreciate all his help. He made some great adjustments to make me more comfortable. Spotter Curtis (Aldridge) was in my ear helping me get around the track. He is really calm and when you are out there with 42 other cars it gets hectic.” (more…)

When Eddie MacDonald begins his race weekend at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East Granite State 70 race on Friday, July 17, Exit Realty will be the primary sponsor on the hood of the #71 Grimm Construction Chevy. Exit Realty will also occupy the rear quarter panel of the #32 DraftDemons.com Sprint Cup entry Eddie Mac will drive in NASCAR’s New Hampshire 301 on Sunday, July 19. Derek Beatrice, owner and CEO of Exit Realty located in Middleton, Mass., announced the Exit Realty logo will appear on the hood of the American Canadian Tour #17 for the remainder of the season.

“Last year Exit helped us out sponsoring the K&N car at Loudon and things just seemed to click with Derek and our team,” said Eddie Mac. “Derek is such a great guy; we continued to stay in touch talking about the possibility of sponsoring the team. Things just worked out and Derek delivered much more than we had hoped. Not only did he offer to sponsor a number of ACT races, when he heard we could use some help with the Sprint Cup ride he jumped on board. Exit Realty will ride on the rear quarter panel on the #32 and this means a lot to me. I am so happy that the hood of the K&N car will display the Exit Realty logo for Friday’s race. A lot of Exit people showed up for the race last year and a huge number is expected again this year. We had a lot of fun with our “new” fans and plans are in the works for another great time. Words cannot express my gratitude to Derek and Exit Realty for everything.” (more…)
