Fredericton, NB – The Peterbilt 250 is only 9 years young and is looking to set a record for Pro Stock entries for the 2009 event. The event has grown in stature and prestige each and every year since its inception in 2001. The car count for the 250 has grown over the years also with the current record for car count was set in 2006 when 44 cars attempted to make the field.
Fredericton, NB – It was a beautiful day for racing in the Geary Woods. A great day for crowning champions. After being washed out on Saturday evening today’s Fan Appreciation day was a success.
In the Coast Tire Street Stock we saw a new champion being crowned. Brian Fox won his first Coast Tire Street Stock Championship. Going into the feature there were just a couple points between Fox and Rick Cashol. Unfortunately Cashol had a mechanical problem which forced him to the pits. He came back and was still on the lead lap but he ran out of time and laps. The rookie of the year was the # 4 of Richard Hartley. Kevin McKeen was the other big story in the Street Stock division taking home the Robin’s Inn Hat Trick Award. McKeen has been getting stronger each week. Matt Matheson finished a close second as Charles Gaddess rounded out the top three.
