Scott Payea is back. The veteran Late Model stock car driver has joined champion car owner and crew chief Rick Paya for a full-season schedule on the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) with RPM Motorsports in 2016. The pairing marks a new era for the RPM team and a return to the driver’s seat for the Milton, VT racer after a two-year hiatus from the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
Scott Payea was a top ACT contender for several years before taking a break to spend time with his young family. Payea was an immediate force upon joining ACT in 2005, finishing third in the first start of his career. He went on to claim the Rookie of the Year title that season and was the championship runner-up three straight years in 2007-09, winning five ACT races during that time. Payea scaled back from touring in 2010 to race locally at Thunder Road Speedbowl in Barre, VT before hanging up his helmet at the end of 2013.
