Winter Weather Stops Two ACT Events

WATERBURY, Vt. – The American-Canadian Tour events at both Maine’s Oxford Plains Speedway and Thunder Road Speedbowl have been postponed due to poor ground conditions and leftover snow from the past winter.

The Oxford 150 has been rescheduled for Sunday, April 28 at 1:30 p.m. while the Community Bank N.A. 150 has been moved to Sunday, May 5 at 1:30 p.m.

With less than a week remaining before the originally-scheduled opening date, Oxford Plains Speedway reports that they still have three inches of snow on the ground. More snow and rain are in the forecast for later in the week, which are expected to exacerbate the already-wet conditions.

This led to the decision to postpone the event – which will also feature the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) Super Late Models, PASS Modifieds, Honey Badger Street Stock Series, and North East Mini Stock Tour – to Sunday, April 28. The open practice day has also been rescheduled for Saturday, April 27. The full schedule of events for both days will be announced at a later date.

The combination of ground conditions and scheduling has also resulted in the postponement of the Community Bank N.A. 150 at Thunder Road, which has been facing problems with snow in its own right. It has been moved back one week to Sunday, May 5. The event was originally scheduled for April 28, the same date the Oxford 150 will now be held.

“It’s been a long winter in northern New England – long enough that we’ll have to wait a little to start racing here,” ACT managing partner Cris Mchaud said. “Simply put, neither facility is in condition for racing right now because of all the snow we’ve gotten. Given the conditions we’re facing, we agreed it was in everyone’s best interests to pull the plug early on both events so everyone has time to make new plans.”
