Trepanier used a win and a 4th in the twin 75-lap segments to earn the overall win with a score of 5. He bested current Série ACT point leader Donald Theetge, while Jean-François Déry completed the podium.

Trepanier claimed the win in the first segment of the event after starting on the pole. He held off Patrick Cliche and Donald Theetge through six restarts in segment one. He then climbed his way from 12th in the second segment to finish 4th and claim the overall win. The second segment also saw six caution periods.

Patrick Cliche continued his strong season with 4th overall followed by Steven Boissonneault. Etienne Cliche picked up 6th, veteran Claude Leclerc 7th, while Alex Labbe rebounded from a rough first segment to win the second segment and claim 8th. Patrick Hamel and rookie driver Martin Goulet, Jr. completed the top ten.

Trepanier becomes the 10th American Canadian Tour competitor to punch his ticket to the ACT Bond Invitational at New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Saturday, September 21. Others with a starting spot at the “Magic Mile” are Jimmy Hebert, Brian Hoar, Wayne Helliwell, Jr., Joey Polewarczyk, Jr., Jean-François Déry, Donald Theetge, Derrick O’Donnell, Cody Blake and Bobby Therrien.

Stars of the Série ACT will join the ACT US competitors at the biggest stock car race of the summer, the ACT International 500 next Sunday, July 21 at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY. The triple 100-lap segments will be no-holds-bar as $25,000 is up for grabs for the winner and there are no points on the line. The $140,000 event will be joined by twin 50s for the ground-pounding Airborne Modifieds.
