Fredericton, NB – After watching Speedway 660 point’s leader Greg Fahey of St. Stephen lead the first 84 laps of the Parts for Trucks 100, Fredericton’s Shawn Tucker’s No. 52 car was good enough on the outside on the lap 83 restart to overtake Fahey en route to his first checkered flag of the Parts for Trucks Maritime Pro Stock Tour.
Starting ninth, Tucker moved quickly, but patiently to the front of the field. He was up to seventh by lap four, sixth by lap eight, and in the top five by lap 14.
Tucker continued his push towards the front, passing Maritime Pro Stock Tour point’s leader going into the race, Wayne Smith on lap 17 for fourth. He moved into third on lap 30 and by lap 48 he was directly behind Fahey.
The final 52 laps turned into a constant battle for first, with the caution on lap 83 bringing an end to Fahey’s dominance on the day.
