PASS, ACT, and Thompson Reach Agreement on Multiple Events


WATERBURY, VT and NAPLES, ME – The American-Canadian Tour (ACT) and the Pro All Stars Series (PASS) have reached an agreement with Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park to promote multiple events at the Thompson, CT oval track this season. The events will be the first held on the historic 5/8-mile speedway in 2020 after multiple postponements and cancellations due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.

The first event ACT and PASS are hosting at Thompson Speedway has been set for Wednesday, September 2 and features a visit from the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour. They will then promote the 58th annual World Series of Speedway Racing from Friday, October 9 through Sunday, October 11. The organizations are currently in talks with track ownership regarding the 2021 season and beyond.

Full division lines-ups, times, and pricing for both 2020 events will be announced next week. Attendance will be limited to 25% of capacity per Connecticut state mandate. ACT and PASS plan to offer advance ticket sales for the September 2 event beginning Monday, August 10.

In addition, ACT managing partner Cris Michaud and PASS owner Tom Mayberry are hosting an open practice at Thompson Speedway on Wednesday, August 19. The practice schedule will also be announced next week.

Thompson Speedway is the oldest asphalt auto racing facility in the United States. It opened its doors in 1940 and was long known as the “Indianapolis of the East”. The agreement with ACT and PASS will ensure that the oval remains open for another season.

“We’re excited about this opportunity,” Michaud said. “The ACT Tour was part of the World Series the last five years, and we were always impressed with the facility and with the racing there. We’re looking forward to working with the local teams and touring series that have made Thompson their home and putting on a great show for the fans.”

“It’s a remarkable race track,” Mayberry added. “I spent a lot of nights on the backstretch with Don Hoenig watching the Modifieds and the local divisions. You can practically feel the history every time you’re there. Being part of the Icebreaker for three years was one of the biggest stages PASS has ever raced on. We’re glad to continue contributing to the legacy of such an important speedway.”
