Actually, I had heard that the Cathcart car is not ACT legal. Rumor had it at the time that he built the car to run KD but when they went ACT rules it wasn't legal, that's why it sat in the shop. He never ever, brought it out, so that does make sense. AGAIN, RUMOR ONLY.

So if Pete's car wasn't legal how did he run with the late models a couple weeks ago in the 13 car?  Any chance he could work on it to make it ACT legal or would that be just too much effort for the ability to run 1 event?

If that's the car they plan to take to Oxford will it not need to be basicly ACT legal? 

I thought the ads I saw for the car mentioned it was an ACT legal car.....but I could have just assumed that ..............I can't remember if the ads said so or not.


Wasn't it just carbs and shocks (plus bodies in some cases) that needed to be changed to get inline with ACT rules? How far apart are the rules?

If the car you are talking about Slappy is the one that Whit drove in one of the first Sizzlers, I think it was a mix of all the best rules of the ACT cars and the Late Model cars at the time.  It's a perimeter car so it should be able to be made to meet the ACT rules.  May need some parts to do it, but likely can be done.

It's gonna be a long haul for some of these guys if they don't even make the race.

Heats/LCQ's are gonna be hectic

I'm pretty sure he had/has a built engine. As far as the chassis goes I'm not 100% sure. Lyhcn said they may be willing to start 40 cars. Lynch expects 12 to 14 KD regs, 5 CCS cars, 5 Series Castrol ACT cars, 15 to 18 from ACT tour and add Lynch and Vanderwyst that's one full field of cars. Spotting could be quite a chore.LOL

I think the Cathcart car was built to run the 06 rules for the 07 season then Lynch went to the ACT rules and Cathcart was pissy so he didn't run it.To my understanding it was a brand new Lefthander chassis with a built motor.If the car is racing in ACT Im sure it has a crate now.

Slowel you have no idea what you are talking about. Cathcart had the car built to ACT Rules for Kawartha. It was built by Bill Burns who is Andrew Ranger's crew chief. Bill is a good friend of Bryan's. Bryan did not run the car in 2007, as his mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer in July and passed away in September, so he wasn't pissy about the rules; he had other priorities. This year he is running some NASCAR Canadian Tire races as time permits, as he has a very busy business, as well as a Jr. A hockey team. The Zardos and the Sheppards have been friends of his for years, so he thought, if he could help Pete out, he would let him race the car, as he was not going to have time to do it. It's too bad some of you guys don't know what you're talking about.

very quick rundown...beacuse I just got home and need to shower & eat.


Patrick Laperle wins again for the 2nd straight year...very competitive race, prolly the best LM show I'v ever seen...45 cars showed up for 36 spots.

I'l be back on later to do a bit more of a review..along with a lot of other people I'm sure.


bit more information...I'm not exactly sure the order of the top-5 so I'l let somebody eles fill that in.

The Battle for the lead within the last 10 laps was amazing..between Laperle & Karl Allard as they ran side-by-side literary stuck! together for a good 5 laps or so..untill Karl slide up and almost lost the car.

I was impressed with how Laperle was able fix the handling on his car...beacuse I had him counted out earlier in the race..as he about wrecked the car 4-5 times as it was loooose going into the turns.

Best running KD car was again McCattie..but just like last year he cut down a tire...and then basicly took him out of contention.

Racing was real clean untill the B/LCQ race.... when all hell broke loose..it took over an hour to do a 20 lap race...18 cars started...and only 9 were running at the end...and half of them were looking real rough as well..there was a big pile up in turn-4 involving about half the field.... and the biggest wreck was near the end...when Fernandes & Kimball were both in a TRASNFER SPOT!..and they took them selves out as they made contact off turn 2...and both cars hit the inside wall on the back stretch hard! sending a lot of the blocks out of place....and one all the way down the hill.

The Feature was fairly clean...they ran the first 74 laps green flag..and then just a few bumps and spins...a couple times  a lot of guys need a big hand...beacuse there could have been some huge pile-up's but everyone got slown down and advioded the spun car...on a few different occasions


Mini-Stocks were won by Shanna Moroney...went from upside down to victorylane in about a week...big pat on the back to all of the Moroney's


Thunder Car Feature went to the #53 of Mike Poulton who had a great! battle with Doucette also Mayhew & Wille were right on there tails.  There was one big wreck at the end that heavily damaged a few cars.

Legends was won by #99 (not sure on the name) but they had a big 27 car field that ran caution free feature.


Was a great day...can't wait till next year already!
