2002 ACT Dodge Tour Has Added New Hampshire Influence
For Immediate Release ACT13-030702
Waterbury, VT - -The 2002 ACT Dodge Tour opener at Star Speedway in Epping, NH
Saturday, April 13 is the first of eight events in the Late Model stock car racing series to be held
at a Granite State track. The ACT Dodge Tour has expanded to a 16 race schedule this
season, which includes its first visit in 20 years to Monadnock Speedway in Winchester, NH,
and appearances at White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, Canaan USA
Speedway in Canaan, Groveton's Riverside Speedway and Hudson Speedway.
The increased number of New Hampshire races, ACT's aggressive cost control
measures, such as its "crate engine" program and its $64,000 point fund, has led to more New
Hampshire drivers on the circuit. ACT veterans Ken Dufour of Bethlehem and Tracie Bellerose
of Gorham, the 2000 Thunder Road Late Model Champion, will be joined by Herb Drugg of
Troy, Gary Knight of Charlestown, Buzzie Bezanson of Plaistow, Sam Gooden of Whitefield,
Victor Johnson of Troy and Bob Webber Jr, son of Star Speedway owner Bob Webber.
Bob Webber Jr has combined forces with car builder Robert Watts to form the TJ
Webber Racing team and he plans to bid for the Thunder Road Late Model Rookie of the Year
honors at Thunder Road as well as compete on the ACT Dodge Tour. TJ Webber Racing has
announced that it will donate all of its ACT Dodge Tour winnings to the "Racing Against
Defending ACT Champion Pete Fecteau and 2001 Thunder Road Late Model Champion
Cris Michaud, are among the 32 full-season entries filed to date. In addition to the series' April
13 opener, the ACT Dodge Tour will race at Star Speedway Saturday, July 27 as part of a New
Hampshire weekend twinbill that concludes at neighboring Hudson Speedway Sunday, July 28.
