Tom Carey III will be contending a busy schedule for the 2018 season as he will race for points full time in Late Model division at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park and run as many races on the American Canadian Tour as much as possible.

Carey III told 22News that he believes there is three schedule conflicts. The plan right now is to race in seven American Canadian Tour races.

The Late Model rules at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park are the same rules as the American Canadian Tour.

“I think more tracks if they went that way. You would see a lot more car counts at more tracks. Its good. We’re not building a new car this year. We did last year so that was really a struggle. Will never do that again build it during the season,” said Carey III.

The team is talking about Tom Carey, Jr running some races but the focus right now is on one car and hope to win some races.

“I think we jumped the gun on it. We wanted to do Loudon together even though that didn’t plan out as good as it should of been. Maybe you’ll see us both in the World Series,” said Carey III.

Cris Michaud and Pat Malone purchased the American Canadian Tour last season as they own Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT.  Tom Curley started the American Canadian Tour and passed away last May. Curley was always looking at the affordable cost for the competitors. 

“As long as he keeps to the formula that Tom Curley put in place. I don’t see how you could go wrong,” said Carey III.

Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park is racing a seven-race schedule this year. They already ran the Icebreaker last month ago. Carey, III likes the schedule as he has a family where hes like to take his two-year-old daughter Taylor out fishing. The American Canadian Tour will also be doing one race a month.

“Overall we get to race a couple times a month. We all get to hang out with our families,” said Carey III.

The American Canadian Tour will kickoff their 2018 season this weekend at Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT on Sunday.  Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park will be back in action on Sunday, May 20.
