New Crazy Horse Chassis Leads All 50 Laps En Route To Victory

WATERFORD, Conn. – It wasn't a bad debut for Keith Rocco's brand new Crazy Horse Racing chassis.

Rocco led every lap to thoroughly dominate en route to victory in the 50-lap NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model feature event as part of the season-opening Budweiser Blastoff at Waterford Speedbowl in Waterford, Conn., on Sunday, April 7.

It was Rocco's fifth career Late Model victory for car owner Scott Fearn as the two begin pursuit of their first championship in the division.

"This Crazy Horse chassis is unbelievable," Rocco, of Wallingford, Conn., told RaceDayCT.comfollowing the win. "The track definitely freed up from (Saturday), and as free as the track was, this thing still drove hard off the corner and had an awesome nose on it.

"I can't say enough for everybody over at Crazy Horse Racing. They definitely put us together a stellar piece."

Rocco, the 2010 NASCAR Whelen All-American Series national champion, also won the 63-lap SK Modified feature event Sunday at Waterford. He has already won SK Modified and Street Stock championships at the track during his career.

Fort Kent Teen Named Maine Driver Of The Year For 2012

AUGUSTA, Maine – Austin Theriault added another laurel to his already impressive resume, as the Fort Kent, Maine, native was named the 2012 Driver Of The Year during the Maine Vintage Race Car Association (MVRCA) annual Hall Of Fame induction ceremony and banquet on Saturday, April 6, at the Augusta Civic Center.

Theriault, 19, competed full-time on the ACT Late Model Tour last season while also running several races for Brad Keselowski Racing and making two PASS North Series starts.

"It's a tremendous honor to be named the MVRCA 'Driver of the Year,'" Theriault said after competing in a Southern Super Series for Super Late Models at the historic Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville in Nashville, Tenn., on Saturday night. "It's humbling to have your name up there with so many of the great names that are part of this sport. I want to thank everyone who was involved in the selection process."

Theriault's breakout 2012 season was marked by an ACT Late Model Tour win at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway in Scarborough, Maine, in July and a PASS North Series victory in the season finale at Oxford Plains Speedway in Oxford, Maine, in October. He also posted his second consecutive third-place finish in the prestigious TD Bank Oxford 250 at Oxford Plains.

Theriault finished third in the final ACT Late Model Tour standings, the only driver to post Top-10 finishes in all 10 of the series' points races. He also recorded six Top-5 finishes, tying for the series-high.

His campaign was rounded out with a multi-race effort at BKR, which made starts in such nationally-notable races as the Snowball Derby in Pensacola, Fla., the World Crown 300 in Jefferson, Ga., the Winchester 400 in Winchester, Ind., and the Rowdy 251 in Berlin, Mich. Theriault posted a third-place finish in the Governor's Cup 200 at New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, Fla., in November.

"I really can't thank Brad Keselowski Racing, Crazy Horse Racing, (crew chief) Mickey Green, Gary Crooks, my family, the crews that worked on the cars and everybody involved in ACT and PASS enough," Theriault said. "There are so many people to thank for helping me get to where I am now. I'm almost at a loss for words to have been given such a prestigious award."

During the winter, Theriault moved to North Carolina to work at Brad Keselowski Racing, where he will continue to drive for the BKR development program this season. He will also pilot a family-owned car in six races in Maine this summer, including the Oxford 250, three PASS races at Beech Ridge Motor Speedway and two more PASS races at Oxford Plains, beginning with the season-opening 150-lap event on April 21.

ACT Season Opener Steeped in History

Hoar In Search of Record Third Lee Victory



Waterbury, VT – 2013's American Canadian Tour Season Opener on April 13/14 will mark the 23rd ACT event at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH – and the 14th Season opener at the track – giving today's drivers a chance at being a part of a storied history at Lee USA Speedway with the American Canadian Tour.


Lee USA served as the home for the ACT season opener in 1987 – the 2nd full season of the American Canadian Tour – and saw legend Beaver Dragon take the victory. Dragon wasn't the only driver to kick off a season with a win at Lee though, as stars like Robbie Crouch, Jean-Paul Cabana, Russ Urlin, Dave Dion, Kevin Lepage, and Ralph Nason won them too, cementing their names into the long-standing history of Lee and the American Canadian Tour.


An 8-year hiatus from 1995 until 2003 ushered in a new era of drivers who looked to be on the same list as the greats. Patrick Laperle led the charge with a win in the return race in 2003, and was joined in the years to come by wins from multi-time Thunder Road Champion Cris Michaud, 7-time ACT Champion Jean-Paul Cyr, multi-time Stock Car Champion Ben Rowe, and most recently, 8-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar. Lee has proven to be a wildcard, adding surprise winners like Ontario's DJ Kennington, and New Hampshire's Miles Chipman to the list. No driver has won more than two-events at Lee in its 23 ACT events. Robbie Crouch, Russ Urlin, and Brian Hoar all have two apiece, but Hoar is the only one of the three to have done it since ACT turned to Late Models.Since ACT's return to Lee in 2003, over $250,000 has been paid out to competitors.


In 2013, Hoar will search for his third straight victory at Lee. Hoar knows the history of the track well, and understands how tricky it can be.


"I can't wait to get back to Lee. There's something about the season opener. Everybody has a fresh start, they're happy to see each other, and it's a good time to get the cobwebs out," said Hoar. "I love the track, and we've had a lot of success there. Wins are hard to come by here, but we'll be after it. Any shot at history makes it that much more special for me,"he finished.


The season begins on April 13/14 at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH.
