Fredericton, NB – This Saturday night under the lights at Speedway 660 the Carquest Maritime Pro Stock Tour is heading to the Geary Woods for the Parts for Trucks 100. Once again there is another exciting night of racing coming up.
Upwards of 30 cars are expected to make the trip to Speedway 660 this weekend including some of our own weekly Coastal Blending & Packaging Pro Stock regular drivers. Fans are going to see some exciting competitive racing when the tour hits the track. Everyone is sure to be on the edge of their seats!
Some of the drivers you can expect to see include Fredericton’s Shawn Tucker, former track Champion Dave O’Blenis and Craig Slaunwhite, former Peterbilt 250 Champion. Also St. John’s, Lonnie Sommerville who had a great run in the PASS event, will be looking to make his way to victory lane. Some of the local drivers may include Brent Wiggins, Matt Harris, and Kevin Moore is who is having a great start to the 2010 racing season.
After four of the tour races are in the books, the points have shuffled around and the point’s leader in the Carquest Maritime Pro Stock tour is Shawn Turple. Wayne Smith is a close second in points while Jonathan Hicken is not far behind in third.
Last weekend was the first of three events in the Triple Crown Series. The first race was at Riverside Speedway for the IWK 250 where Kent Vincent picked up a win along with Wayne Smith and Shawn Tucker also having podium finishes. There were 31 cars at the event. The second race of the series will take place at Scotia Speedworld on August 7th for the Atlantic CAT 250 and the final race will be on September 65h at Speedway 660 for the Pro Stock 250 on SPEEDWEEKEND.
In addition to the Parts for Trucks 100, fans will get to see weekly points racing in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman and Leisure Family Rv.com Street Stocks. Fans will see heats and features in both of these divisions. These points series are heating up as the summer goes on and you don’t want to miss it.
