Rowe Snaps Long ACT Winless Drought at Oxford as Hebert Locks up First Title

Belanger Overwhelms Field in Flying Tiger Oxford Open

American Canadian Tour

Oxford, ME — Turner, ME’s Ben Rowe and Williamstown, VT’s Jimmy Hebert took home the glory of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) season finale at Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway on Sunday, October 18. Rowe broke a long ACT dry spell with his victory in the Lee’s Family Trailer Sales & Service 150 while Hebert’s third-place finish clinched his first ACT Late Model Tour championship.

For Rowe, it was the multi-time Pro All Star Series champion’s first win in an ACT-sanctioned event since 2006 — a drought of more than 14 years. Hebert, meanwhile, finally claimed a title after having finished second or third in the ACT standings four different times during his career.

Stark, NH’s Jamie Swallow Jr. set the early tempo, snatching the lead from polesitter Marcel J. Gravel amidst a trio of early cautions. Once the field got going, Swallow checked out, putting several seconds between himself and a raging battle that included Ryan Kuhn, Rowe, Tom Carey III, D.J Shaw, Derek Gluchacki, and others.

Work schedule, college prep consumed driver all summer

RAYMOND, Maine (Sept. 2, 2020) — Sometimes, for even the most talented and determined racers, life gets in the way of pursuing their dreams. Business demands and furthering one’s education are often cited as key factors, but first and foremost, a man has to do what it takes to grow and prosper.

Weekly short track racing is, after all, for most at least, just a hobby. There are other priorities.

For 18-year-old Ivan Kaffel, the summer of 2020 was going to be filled with promise. Yet as the global pandemic began to shut down the short track industry, he wisely shifted his attention.
