Groveton, NH – Eddie “The Outlaw” MacDonald took the lead from Nick Sweet just past the halfway mark and never looked back en route to his second American-Canadian Tour (ACT) win of the season in the Central Asphalt Paving Generation Next 151 at Groveton, NH’s Speedway 51 on Saturday, June 18.
The Rowley, MA driver started seventh and slowly worked his way through the field in the early stages of the caution-free event. After moving into second place on lap 66 following an extended battle with polesitter Brandon Atkins, MacDonald needed just eight laps to reel in Sweet. He moved to the outside groove a few laps later, assuming the top spot on lap 78 and cruising to his first ACT win at the ¼-mile oval.
GROVETON, NH – Jeremy Davis used the outside groove to pass Wayne Helliwell, Jr. and power his way to Victory Lane in the Granite State Pro Stock Series at Speedway 51.
Helliwell, Jr. seemed to be the car to beat early, as the two-time American-Canadian Tour (ACT) champion shot out to a commanding lead. Jeremy Davis jumped to the second spot, and began to run Helliwell, Jr. down, before the first of ten cautions brought the field back together on lap 37. Helliwell, Jr. would fend Davis off on the first restart, but Davis would hold his own on the outside groove after a restart on lap 67. Barry Gray would slow in turn one and two bringing out the caution, just before Helliwell, Jr. and Davis would tangle, leaving Davis sideways in the infield. With Gray being the caution car, Davis and Helliwell, Jr. would get their spots back, setting up another battle.
