Montmagny, QC – Defending Série ACT Champion Alex Labbé used a late cross-over move on fellow former Champion Donald Theetge to earn his fourth win of the year in the Montmagny 150 at Autodrome Montmagny on Saturday, September 5.
St-Albert, QC's Labbé looked to the high side of Theetge entering turn 1 with three laps remaining, then dove low to Theetge's inside exiting turn 2. The pair battled side-by-side for the next two laps before Labbé secured the lead.
Boischatel, QC's Theetge dominated the first third of the race before surrendering the lead to Blainville, QC's Jonathan Bouvrette on lap 51. Apart from one circuit where Labbé nosed ahead, Bouvrette kept him and Theetge at bay until his engine let go on lap 98. Labbé and Theetge then fought for the remainder of the race before Labbé's winning move.
Theetge settled for a season-best second-place result after leading a race-high 91 laps. 2013 Série ACT Champion Jean-François Déry finished third to cut into Dany Trépanier's point lead. Martin Goulet Jr., Patrick Hamel, Eric St-Gelais, Patrick Boyer, Patrick Cliche, Gaetan Gaudrealt, and Trépanier completed the top-10.
Série ACT will be back in action this Saturday, September 12 at Autodrome Chaudiere for a 200-lap combination event with the ACT U.S. Tour. The Pro All Stars Series Super Late Models will also run 200 laps in the doubleheader at the 1/3-mile oval. Post time is 6:00pm.
