D.J. Shaw has a busy weekend planned, with a pair of races on his schedule Saturday and Sunday.

First, Shaw heads across the border to Autodrome Chaudière in Vallée-Jonction, Quebec for the American-Canadian Tour’s Claude Leclerc 150. After competing in that event on Saturday, Shaw heads back to his home state of New Hampshire to compete with the Pro All Stars Series at White Mountain Motorsports Park.


It’s the kind of thing Shaw has grown more accustomed to doing in recent years. A five-time PASS North champion and two-time ACT champion, Shaw has embraced running both series.

“We’re going to continue with the both-series thing,” said Shaw on Racing America’s ‘The Bullring.’ “There’s usually about seven races on the same day at the same track, we pull a double. It’s very hectic in the moment, but it gives you a day to recover unlike this weekend.

“There’s not too many of these [doubleheaders]. The schedules work pretty well, and ACT and PASS have done a great job of working together to allow us the last several years to pull this off. There are a few more guys each year doing this, it seems. We’re going to try to make it work as long as we can and as long as we have the cars and teams to do so.”

As taxing as it may be to travel between the two tracks and race on back-to-back days, Shaw also admits it’s a good bit of old-school fun.

“It’s kind of like the old-school way it used to be. Everybody did this stuff back in the 80s and early 90s, stuff like that. We don’t get to do it often. I see why they don’t, but it’s a lot of fun to hopefully have a couple of good races at two of my favorite race tracks, really. That helps the driving seem not so long throughout the night.

“White Mountain’s actually our closest track. It’s about 45 minutes from us. We’ll drive to Quebec, it’s probably close to six hours for us. We’ll leave right after the race, come home and get the truck and trailer for Sunday.”

Shaw has raced at Autodrome Chaudière many times over his career, including two PASS wins. However, it had been several years since he had been to the Quebec bullring before returning with ACT in 2022 and 2023.

That came with an adjustment period, as he finds there are many more racing grooves available now in the ACT car than there were in years past.

“We raced there a lot years ago with the PASS cars and it never did that. These last couple of years, we’ve been able to use all the lanes. I feel like it puts a lot more in the driver’s hands. You can hustle the car. The race starts on the bottom. The first person who can get out there and make it work sets the tone for the day and usually has a pretty good day of it.

“Hopefully we can be up front like we have been, try to keep it clean and get ready for another action-packed day at another quarter-mile bullring the next day.”
