Hudson's 'Joey Pole' claims first ACT win of season


Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson solidified his American Canadian Tour point lead with his first win of the season in the ACT Can-Am 200 at Circuit Riverside Speedway in St-Croix, Quebec, on Saturday,

“Joey Pole” became the eighth different ACT winner in the first eight point counting events and pocketed over $5,000 for the victory. Serie ACT point leader Alex Labbe claimed second in the race, which was the seventh event on the Quebec-based series.

Polewarczyk started in the fourth position in the 33-car field and ran in the top five throughout the 200-lap event. He started outside Dover’s Wayne Helliwell, Jr. on the 12th and final restart of the race with 25 laps remaining. Helliwell had led the majority of the race and still seemed to have the race in hand as Polewarczyk slipped back to second on the restart. Just a few laps later, however, Helliwell’s steering column broke, ending his day and handing the lead to Polewarczyk.

Polewarczyk held off Labbe over the final 20 laps to claim the win.

By winning, he became the latest qualifier for the sixth annual Bond Auto ACT Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon on Saturday, Sept. 20.
