We look forward to the Propane Plus 150 ACT race becoming an annual ‘must see’ event at Seekonk and the other tracks involved in the ACT Southern New England Tripleheader.”
Propane Plus is a leading regional full-service provider of propane and HVAC services, with locations in Rehoboth, MA and East Greenwich, RI. The company also sponsors several weekly programs and initiatives at the speedway, including the Propane Plus Driver Autograph Session and the digital edition of the Seekonk Scene racing magazine.
The Propane Plus 150 will be the eighth event on the 13-race 2016 ACT Late Model Tour schedule. The 25th season of ACT Late Model racing opens Sunday, April 10 with the New Hampshire Governor’s Cup 150 at Lee USA Speedway.
