American-Canadian Tour Brings Back Serie ACT Quebec

BARRE, Vt. — Due to a partnership with Quebec race tracks Autodrome Chaudière and Autodrome Montmagny, the American-Canadian Tour will bring back the Quebec-based Serie ACT next year.

The fan-favorite Serie ACT Quebec is poised for a 10-race return to La Belle Province.

The series will be operated under the cooperative direction of Andre Poulin and Howard Romanado, two longtime figures in Quebec racing. Poulin, promoter of Chaudiere and the Serie Sportsman Quebec, and Romanado, director of stock car racing at the former Autodrome St-Eustache, will together spearhead the return of Serie ACT Quebec.  

Under the direction and promotion of Romanado and Poulin, Serie ACT Quebec will hold a 10-race schedule, with Chaudiere and Montmagny each hosting five events throughout the summer. A progressive point fund for Serie ACT Quebec will start at a minimum of $20,000 (CAD), which is expected to grow as contingency partners are brought on board in the coming months.

There will also be a $1,000 (CAD) Rookie of the Year bonus.  

As with the ACT-US Tour, only teams who have participated in 100% Serie ACT Quebec events will be eligible for year-end point funds.

Serie ACT Quebec will also utilize the American-Canadian Tour Rulebook for Technical Inspection and the Hoosier Race Tires mandated by the sanctioning body. Serie ACT Quebec teams will also have to purchase an ACT-US license, allowing both Quebec and U.S. teams the ability to join any ACT Sanctioned event.      

“I am beyond thrilled to bring a Canadian ACT series back to the race teams and fans of Quebec,” said American-Canadian Tour managing partner Cris Michaud. “Having Andre and Howard bring Chaudiere and Montmagny together in partnership was instrumental in reviving Serie ACT Quebec and I look forward to seeing this program grow in Canada once again.”
