Bergeron Aiming for Devil’s Bowl Speedway Repeat

Veteran is first Late Model driver to seek back-to-back championships


For Immediate Release                                                                                                                                                                         DBS-032114-1


WEST HAVEN, VT – Stock car racer Chris Bergeron isn’t backing off any time soon.  In his first season at Devil’s Bowl Speedway last summer, the veteran driver posted four victories and the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Late Model division championship.  He wants even more success this year, and he’s willing to get it the hard way.

“I’m going for it,” Bergeron said.  “If there’s an opening on the outside lane – even if I only have a ten-percent chance of passing the car in front of me – I’m going to try.”

A sizzling summer-long battle with rookie Josh Masterson came down to final lap of the season, and Bergeron won by just four points.  The Claremont, NH runner says he won the championship – the fifth of his career – with a mix of hard-charging runs, respect for his competitors, and a touch of perspective.

“Most people don’t see racing the way that my team and I do,” Bergeron said.  “We go to the track to have fun and to focus on the race that night,” Bergeron said.  “If you run up front the championships will come, but that means you have to go after every spot rather than just settle for a decent finish.”

Bergeron found himself having fun running with some young racers last year.  “Robert Bryant, Brandon Atkins, Josh Masterson, and a few others, I’ve tried to help them learn a few things,” Bergeron said.  “Some of them took a few weeks to settle in to the Late Model cars and figure out how to race at this level, but by the end of the year they were great to race with.  I have a ton of respect for them.”

Bergeron also gives credit to his team.  “My son, Cory, and guys like Gary LaClair, Tony Frasier, Tim Bergeron, Phil Chastenay, and Tom Munuka are what makes this car fast, and especially Larry Stevens, who’s in the garage with me almost every night,” Bergeron said.  The team returns with sponsors Gary’s Claremont Tire, Phil’s Signs & Stripes, Revered Painting, Ray Morin, and Vermont Life Safety, and together they’ll try to become the first repeat Late Model champions in Devil’s Bowl’s asphalt era.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway opens on Sunday, May 4 at 1:30pm with the Spring Green event for the American-Canadian Tour Late Models and the Bond Auto Parts Modified, Renegade, and Central Vermont Motorcycles Mini Stock divisions of the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series.  The Late Model division’s regular season championship opens on Friday, May 16.

Devil’s Bowl Speedway is located on Route 22A in West Haven, VT, four miles north of Exit 2 on U.S. Route 4.  For more information or to order discount season passes, call (802) 265-3112 or visit www.devilsbowlspeedwayvt.com.  Devil’s Bowl Speedway is on Facebook at Facebook.com/DevilsBowlSpeedway and on Twitter and Instagram at @DevilsBowlSpeed.

For Immediate Release:                                             ACT – 032114-7


        Waterbury, VT –The best group of young talent in nearly 30 years has emerged to challenge some of the biggest stock car racing stars in the Northeast during the 2014 American Canadian Tour (ACT) upcoming season.


“Having this many talented young teams is exactly what ACT racing was designed for. All these teams have come out of weekly tracks and are now testing the longer distance events. ACT tries to create schedules that will still allow teams to race at their “home tracks” during the height of the race season. We have lots of events scheduled in early Spring and later in the Fall. Watching these new young teams develop has become one of the most fun parts of the business for me. There is nothing more exciting than to see a young racer win his/her first major event!!”, said Tom Curley, long-time promoter of ACT racing.


The new campaign is led by two former Rookie of the Year contenders, Jimmy Hebert from Williamstown, VT and Bobby Therrien of Hinesburg, VT. There is a great deal of excitement about the depth of talent in the field as the 2014 campaign begins at Lee USA’s Governor’s Cup 150 on Sunday, April 13, 2014. Hebert is the defending champion of the Governor’s Cup. He also won a second event on the mile at the Sanair Super Speedway in St Pie, Quebec a year ago. Therrien is led by veteran crew chief Pete Duto and his Fast One/Subway race team. Defending ACT Rookie of the Year Therrien handily won a 150-lap feature at the White Mountain Motorsports Park in North Woodstock, NH during his inaugural touring year in 2013.


One of the most consistent racers during last year’s 16-race season was Mooresville, North Carolina’s Ben Lynch. Lynch finished an impressive 5th in points with eight (8) top ten finishes during the campaign in 2013. Joining the generation of young talent for the coming season on the ACT traveling circuit will be Travis Stearns from Auburn, ME driving the Mickey Green-prepared, Richard Green entry. Stearns also garnered his first win in his rookie season during 2013, winning the prestigious Labor Day Classic 200 at Thunder Road, beating a stellar field of regular Thunder Road teams and ACT teams.


Part-time tour contenders making first-time, full efforts in 2014 are Emily Packard, a Thunder Road weekly regular in 2013, and Brandon Atkins from Ausable, New York. As first-time touring and part-time participants in 2013, both received high marks from the veterans at ACT and were able to get many laps of experience last season. Both were impressive enough to be invited to the Bond ACT Invitational at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in 2013.


“I think it is great that we are getting so many good young teams into the ACT system”, said (8) eight-time ACT Champion Brian Hoar. “These kids have very good equipment and it is fun to race with them. It is gratifying to know that there is a pool of talented depth keeping ACT Late Model racing healthy in the region,” concluded Hoar.


The ACT opening event at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH will take place with a full practice on Saturday, April 12 and a 150-lap feature event on Sunday, April 13, 2014. Qualifying will begin at 1:00 on Sunday.
