(Loudon, NH) The American Canadian Tour will make a return to the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday September 18th.  It will be a part of the Sylvania 300 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race.   The track brought the American Canadian Tour last year in what is was called "The Invitational" The way the Invitational worked is that every American Canadian Tour Late Model race in New England, New York, and Canada were qualifying races for The Invitational.  Prior to the race, in August the track held a test where a total of 50 teams were invitied to come.  The test went well with no major incidents. 

The race was 50 laps. The race went 31 laps without a caution and had one more caution on lap 42. At the end of the day, NASCAR Camping World East Series Driver Eddie MacDonald out of Rowley, MA took down the win. MacDonald qualified by winning the Oxford 250 in Maine back in July. MacDonald also took down the win in the NASCAR Camping World East Series the day before.  

Along with the American Canadian Tour race, fans will get to see the New Hampshire 100 NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour race, and the New Hampshire 200 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race. The American Canadian Tour will kick off their season on Sunday April 18th at Lee USA Speedway in Lee, NH.
