Lee, NH – The season-opening American Canadian Tour (ACT) New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 got the 2014 Lee USA Speedway campaign underway on Sunday afternoon, despite Mother Nature’s best efforts to stop the action.
Lee USA’s track crew and ACT tour officials stuck to their guns and beat the morning-long rain to put on a tremendous show for the hardy fans who waited it out, and they certainly got their money‘s worth during the course of the afternoon.
Waterbury, VT –There are a number of veteran American Canadian Tour (ACT) stock car drivers looking for their first wins in the traditional spring opening event at the Lee USA Speedway’s New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 on Sunday, April 13, 2014.
Coming fresh off his NASCAR K&N win at the rugged Bristol Motor Speedway, Eddie MacDonald from Rowley, MA has to be considered a favorite to win at his family-owned track. “I would think that a betting man might be smart to forget the NCAA Final Four and drop a dime on the “Outlaw” winning the annual ACT opener,” said ACT President, Tom Curley. “Eddie has won ACT races before, and he has been in a position to win at Lee on several occasions over the years, but has not grabbed the checkers yet. He usually finds a way to get to the front, although his schedule usually does not allow for much practice compared to other teams. He still is long overdue to win the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup,” concluded Curley. Continue reading

Lee, NH – With the recent announcement that Chelmsford, MA driver Ryan Gath will be taking over the driving chores in the Howie Lane-owned ISMA Supermodified for the 2014 season, it becomes even clearer than ever that the road to ISMA runs straight through the Lee USA Speedway.
Gath was the 2012 Rookie of the Year in the Lee USA Speedway NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Small Block Supermodifieds, and after winning the 2012 Oktoberfest feature event and a pair of regular season races during the 2013 season, his star is definitely on the rise.
