Michaud, Malone Acquire ACT Late Model Tour

Cris Michaud and Pat Malone, who earlier this year purchased Thunder Road Int’l Speedbowl, have completed the purchase of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) for asphalt late models.

Founded by the late Tom Curley, who died in May from complications of COPD, the 31-year-old series features strict rules requirements, including the use of crate engines and other cost-restricting guidelines. ACT events have been held throughout New England, New York, eastern Canada and Florida.

Darla Hartt, who took over ownership of the series following Curley’s passing, spoke about the sale of the series.

“My decision to sell ACT is bittersweet, having worked with Tom from the initial NASCAR North Tour in 1979, and then launching our own series in 1986,” said Hartt. “Over 38 years we logged many thousands of miles and enjoyed so many adventures with incredible people. Everyone in our ACT family felt a huge loss in his passing, but the teams, fans, promoters, and officials who are ACT remain dedicated to the task of moving forward.”
