Tylor Hawes (Porters Lake, NS) jumped in by winning his first race in his first start in July at Petty International Raceway in “The Hugger,” a tribute to Jim Hallahan. Same song, different dance for Stacey Clements (Timberlea, NS) in his Junior Hanley throwback as he drove to victory lane at Riverside International Speedway. Jeff Ainslie (Halifax, NS) put “The Hound” back on top in the first stop to Prince Edward Island for the Series in August at Oyster Bed Speedway.

The three day festival of speed starts on Friday, September 3rd with the SpeedWeekend Kick Off Show featuring racing action from the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters, Atlantic Modified Tour and a “Turn Five Concert” featuring Hazzard.
