Defending ACT International winner Joey Polewarczyk, Jr. of Hudson, NH has filed the first entry for the 2014 edition of the event to be held at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY on Sunday, July 20. Polewarczyk's historic win in the inaugural event in 2013 earned him $25,000.

Last year Polewarczyk bested Brian Hoar by just one point by winning the first two segments and taking second in the third segment to pocket the big paycheck. This season Polewarczyk sits atop the ACT standings with four events completed to date. He has to be one of the early favorites for the second running of the ACT International event.

"Last year's win ranks right up there with the Milk Bowl, and the Invitational (at NHMS). It's a huge race and last year being the inaugural made it even bigger," said Polewarczyk. When asked about his confidence heading into the event Polewarczyk commented, "We're pretty confident. We had a good car at the 100-lapper at Airborne and I like the style of the segments with the inversions. We've had a lot of practice working through traffic and coming through the field so far this season." In the first four events this season, Polewarczyk's average starting position is 14 with his average finish position at 2.75.

The winner's share for this season is $25,000 plus $50 for each lap lead, and a $1,000 bonus for the Bond ACT Invitational qualifier. The purse guarantees a minimum of $1,000 for all 36 qualifiers for the three segment event, 200 lap main event.

Polewarczyk's entry arrived to the ACT office just minutes after it was released. It was soon followed by entries from Matt Anderson of Franklin, NH, Jason Corliss of Barre, VT and Emily Packard of Montpelier, VT.

The 2014 edition of the ACT International at Airborne Speedway in Plattsburgh, NY will be held on Sunday, July 20 with a 1:00pm post time.
