Sprint Car Racing / TURNER BROTHERS LEAD SOS INTO DOUBLEHEADER WEEKEND
« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on August 17, 2018, 11:39:10 AM »
TURNER BROTHERS LEAD SOS INTO DOUBLEHEADER WEEKEND
 
 
 
By Tommy Goudge (August 17, 2018) – London, Ontario – The 23rd season of Southern Ontario Sprints racing continues this weekend when the tour heads to Ohsweken Speedway and South Buxton Raceway for rounds six and seven of the 2018 schedule.

Cory Turner leads the SOS championship points standings heading into this weekend's events, while Cory's brother Ryan Turner is just 22 points behind. 2013 champ Chris Jones is third in the standings, followed by 2016 & 2017 champ Dylan Westbrook, Jamie Turner, Shawn Sliter, Steve Lyons, 2001 & 2006 champ Warren Mahoney, Frank Baranowski, and Paul Pekkonen. Both Cory and Ryan Turner have already scored SOS wins this season, along with Dylan Westbrook.

The Friday, August 17 event at Ohsweken pits the SOS tour regulars against Ohsweken's weekly 360 racers, though many drivers can be found in the championship points standings for both the SOS and Ohsweken. The SOS tour has competed 104 times at Ohsweken since the banked 3/8 mile oval opened on June 16, 1996. Keith Dempster and Glenn Styres are tied atop the all-time SOS feature win list at Ohsweken with eight victories each. Dylan Westbrook was the victor in the 2017 SOS vs. Ohsweken event. Along with the SOS, Friday's event is in support of the Canadian National Autism Foundation Kids Race program, and also features Crate Sprint Cars, Thunder Stocks, and Mini Stocks.

The Saturday, August 18 event at South Buxton will find the SOS tour back where it all began; the inaugural SOS race was held at the unique D-shaped 1/3 mile track on May 18, 1996. The SOS tour has competed at South Buxton 37 times since that first event, with Mike Ling still leading the all-time SOS feature win list there with five victories. Dylan Westbrook swept both SOS visits to South Buxton last season. Along with the winged 360 Sprint Cars of the SOS tour, Saturday’s event will also feature South Buxton's Late Models, Modifieds, Thunder Stocks, and Mini Mods.

Salute To You! Fan Appreciation Night Honors Speedway 660 Fans on Saturday Evening

 

(GEARY, NB – August 16th, 2018) – The Speedway 660 25th Anniversary Season continues on Saturday, August 18th with Fan Appreciation Night. Not only will all four Speedway 660 house divisions put on a show as they fight for valuable championship points with two point races remaining, fans will have the chance to meet their favorite drivers, see the cars up close and win a number of door prizes throughout the evening. Fans will be able to meet their favorite drivers with an on track autograph session beginning at 5:30pm with racing beginning at 6:30pm.

 

After a two week break, the RE/MAX East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock division will resume their tight championship battle. Dave O’Blenis (Boundary Creek), the five time Pro Stock division champion, has a one point lead over sophomore driver Ryan Messer (Harvey). Messer has championships in every stock car discipline he has raced leading to his Pro Stock debut last year. Should they stumble, Greg Fahey (St Stephen) and Brent Roy (Hanwell) sit only 17 and 29 points behind the championship battle with just two point races remaining. Ashton Tucker (Lyttleton), 30 points out of O’Blenis, completes the top five in the standings. All five at the top of the championship chase have won at least one feature event this season and will make for an excellent showcase to the finish of the season.

 

With two races to go in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division, Drew Greenlaw (Eastport, ME) and Curtis Collins (Saint John) are hoping to settle this championship battle amongst themselves. Greenlaw was in the same place last year and he battled back and forth with John Rankin (St. Martin’s), only to be edged out by Rankin on the final race day of the year. The 2018 Firecracker 150 winner has a six point edge on the sophomore Collins heading into Fan Appreciation Night. The O’Blenis sisters, Courtney and Alexandra, are 22 and 24 points back and will need to make tracks in the final two races if they want to crack into the champagne on Night of Champions. Jacob Logan (Harvey) sits fifth in the standings, 39 points off the leader Greenlaw.

 

It remains a four horse race in the DMR Auto Sales Street Stock division but there is a new leader of the pack. With help from a feature win last Saturday, Shawn Hyslop (St. Stephen) vaulted his way to the top spot in the championship hunt. His lead is two points, or the difference in one feature race position, over last week’s leader Riley Goodwin (McAdam). Only seven points back is feature win leader in the class Justin Cole (Harvey) and falling back to 16 points off the mark is Roger Slocum (Chipman). The 30-lap feature and 10-lap qualifiers will be key on Saturday night to set the stage for Night of Champions on August 25th.

 

Bryan Suttie (Keswick) leads the three way tug of war for the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters championship with just two races to go. Brody Levesque (Fredericton) took home another feature win last Saturday and pulled himself to within one point of Suttie for the championship lead. Scott “Bat Hubby” Kennie (Fredericton) finds himself just six points away from what would be his first championship. The class sees the most intriguing racing on a Saturday night at Speedway 660 and with some of the highest car counts of any class in Geary, the chances for this championship battle to turn unpredictable are high over the final two weeks.

 

Returning for 2018, children aged 15 and under will be admitted to the grandstands for free to every stock car event at Speedway 660. The admission structure makes it easier for families to attend race events at the track and received positive feedback from fans when implemented mid-season in 2017.

 

Adult grandstand admission price for Saturday evening’s Fan Appreciation Night is $14 (aged 16 and up). Pit admission is $16 and is restricted to those 16 years of age and older. Tickets are available at the gate on race day. Pit gates for competitors will open at 1pm, grandstand gates open for spectators at 5pm, the on track meet and greet autograph session begins at 5:30pm with racing getting underway at 6:30pm. A complete race day format will be available via Speedway660.com later in the week.

 

Fans are reminded that SpeedWeekend 2018 tickets and campsites are now available. An order form for both can be found on the front page of Speedway660.com or on the SpeedWeekend page on the website. Those that would like to order in person can order at the Speedway 660 office when they visit the race track this Saturday night for the races. Registration is now open for teams that are intending to compete in both the McLaughlin Roof Trusses Pro Stock 250 and the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 150 by heading online or visiting the Speedway 660 office.

Andre Fiorini Sweeps Trailers Plus Ontario Legends Events at Sunset Speedway

By Jim Clarke, Clarke Motorsports Communications/First Draft Media

 

The motorsports community has always had a soft spot for a first-time main event winner. Whether it comes in a drivers first season or after years of trying, that initial checkered flag in an unforgettable memory that no one can take away. Saturday, August 11th Andre Fiorini joined a special fraternity with a pair of Trailers Plus Ontario Legend Series victories at Sunset Speedway.

 

Even though he’s still only running a limited schedule, the 19-year-old former go-kart racer from Port Hope, Ontario had turned-in some impressive finishes during the 2018 schedule, including a 9th place effort Saturday, July 28th at Peterborough Speedway. Running well always gives a driver an extra-shot of confidence and Fiorini says he’s been pleased with his team’s performances this year.

 

“Going back to karting, racing was supposed to be fun and I’ve been lucky to maintain that same attitude with the Legends Series,” Fiorini said. “All the other teams and drivers have been a big help since I got started and they’re always ready to answer any questions I might have and help me find a quicker way around the track.”

 

Fiorini says his car was quick right off the trailer and after a few adjustments, it was rails. In the opening ‘A; main, he started on the pole and kept his focus throughout the race. In the night’s second feature, he had to deal with getting around Robin Jongen and Wes Cuthbertson – a couple of drivers with much more experience – to make it a clean sweep of the weekend.

 

“I owe a huge vote of thanks to Cory Hall and Cory Hall Racing for their help with set-up information and tips all through the season.”

MINI STOCK TOUR FLOORS IT TO RIVERSIDE FRIDAY NIGHT

 

(DARTMOUTH, NS – August 15th, 2018) – The cars and stars of the MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour roll up the Trans Canada Highway to Riverside International Speedway on Friday, August 17th for the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50. The 50-lap feature is Round Four of Seven on the 2018 season and first of two stops at the James River, Nova Scotia oval on the year. The Passione Flooring and Interiors 50 is the opening round of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series Bumper to Bumper 300 weekend and will join the NAPA Sportsman Series on Friday night’s card. Racing begins on Friday at 7pm.

 

Matthew Warren (White’s Lake, NS) has moved to the point lead on the Series after his first career MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour victory. Warren battled with Jesse Deveau (Greenwood, NS), his brother Andrew Warren (White’s Lake, NS) and Darren Flemming (Belnan, NS) for the win in the Bruce Honda Showdown on the Shore at Lake Doucette Motor Speedway on August 5th.

 

Warren, a multiple time champion at Scotia Speedworld, has a two point advantage on Dave Matthews (Kennetcook, NS). Matthews won the opening round for the Tour in May at Petty International Raceway. Andrew Warren, who won the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50 at Scotia Speedworld in June, sits only three points back from his brother in the championship chase.

Andrew Warren finished second in this race one year ago driving the car currently campaigned by his brother. The Honda CRX that now has the No. 85 on it went to victory lane two years ago at Riverside in an invitational four cylinder race, then driven by Matt Watson (Miscouche, PE). Watson, still in search of his first MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour victory, will be in the field looking to drive his Honda Civic to victory lane.

 

Tim Webster (Beaver Bank, NS), who won the inaugural MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour race at Riverside International Speedway en route to the 2017 championship, sits fourth in the standings heading into Friday night. Webster had an uncharacteristic “off night” at Lake Doucette Motor Speedway where he finished eleventh after having to pit late in the race. Expect Webster to be back into top form on Friday and not only race to defend his Riverside win but close the 16 point gap between himself and Warren for the championship with four races to go.

Flemming has had a breakout season of sorts when it comes to Mini Stock racing. While he has yet to win an MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour event, he has three wins on the season in weekly competition throughout the region. This will be Flemming’s second Riverside start after finishing 17th here one year ago.

 

Deveau and “The Ironman” Drew MacEachern (Dartmouth, NS) come into Friday with a head of steam. In addition to his podium runs in the last two MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour events at Scotia Speedworld and Lake Doucette Motor Speedway, he was a winner last weekend at Scotia Speedworld in the Thunder division. MacEachern has also seen success at Scotia Speedworld with two podium finishes over the last month and looks to turn around another trophy Friday night in the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50.

 

Cody Byrne (Orwell Cove, PE), Taylor McLean (New Glasgow, NS) and Neil Miousse (Kentville, NS) have competed in all three events thus far on the MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour and are looking for strong runs during the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50.

 

With Scotia Speedworld, Petty International Raceway and Oyster Bed Speedway idle this weekend, a number of their weekly competitors are expected to make the trek to Riverside International Speedway on Friday evening. Chris Garnett (Havelock, NB), Jason Pickles (Meaghers Grant, NS), Greg McKay (Eastern Passage, NS), Jerome Tracey (Port Hawkesbury, NS), Nic Baker (Upper Sackville, NS) and Chris Hatcher (Beaver Bank, NS) will all make their third starts of the MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour season in the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50.

 

Gerald Gallant (Miscouche, PE) and Tyler Larkin (Montague, PE) will make the haul from Prince Edward Island while David “Hibby” Hibbs (Lower Sackville, NS) and former Island Speedway champion Chris Drover (Lower Sackville, NS) will look to add to their trophy cases Friday night. Petty International Raceway regulars JR Lawson (Shubenacadie, NS) and Chantel Ackles (Shubenacadie, NS) will look to transfer success from one high banked oval to another. Alex Landry (Antignonish, NS), driving for James Sample, will make his Riverside debut in the No. 37 car.

 

The Passione Flooring and Interiors 50 starts a busy four week stretch that will boomerang back to Riverside International Speedway on September 8th to crown a Tour champion. The Series heads to Petty International Raceway next Saturday, August 25th before heading to Speedway 660 for the Pub’s Drive Thru Bottle Exchange 50 on Saturday, September 1st. A champion will be crowned at Riverside International Speedway in a 50-lap feature on Saturday, September 8th.

 

In addition to the Giles Auto World Pole Challenge and the EIT Race Radios Hard Charger Award being up for grabs, the Passione Flooring and Interiors 50 is a qualifying race for the United Rental Dash for Cash. The top four drivers in Friday night’s 50-lap feature will qualify to race for a $100 bonus courtesy of United Rentals at the August 25th event at Petty International Raceway.

22 RACING HITS THE ROAD TO RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY IN
ANTIGONISH NOVA SCOTIA
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Wednesday August 15, 2018, Milverton, ON:  It’s race number nine on the thirteen race NASCAR Pinty’s Series 2018 schedule and it will take place this Saturday at Riverside International Speedway just outside of Antigonish Nova Scotia.
 

Alex Tagliani driver of the #18 EpiPen/Rona/St-Hubert Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, fresh off his win at the Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres last Sunday hopes to keep the momentum going and to continue to add to his podium finishes.  In the first eight events of 2018, Tagliani has posted five podium finishes but at Riverside this weekend he will have his work cut out for him as he has only recorded two top tens in his two visits to this track.

 
“Looking forward to Riverside as it is a fantastic track to race on”, said Tagliani.  “The Chisholm family has done a great job with the track and facility and are very passionate about what they do there.  Over the years they have contributed to the IWK hospital in Halifax where I have done a visit before.  It is important for us as a series in Canada to go there and support this family and facility. As a team, a back to back race where the team is coming off winning the pole and the race it is always good to get right back on the track.  Then another race the week following where I feel that the track owes us one so a very busy three weeks.  The new Camaro ZL1 has been in the winner’s circle and collected a lot of podiums as well and we look forward to continuing that for the remainder of the season starting with this weekend at Riverside.”
 
 
Marc-Antoine Camirand driver of the #22 GM Paille Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, will return to a track he really likes this weekend at Riverside.  In 2015 when he last competed full time in the NASCR Pinty’s series he finished second to his now team owner Scott Steckly and they were the only two drivers on the lead lap when the checkered flag waved at lap 300.  Coming off his pole win and fifth place finish at the Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres and no finish this year outside of the top six he hopes to keep the momentum going.


“It is exciting to go back to Riverside as I am really looking forward to this race,” said Camirand.  “It is a great place and nice track and when I was last there in ’15 I finished a strong second place behind the #22 car of Scott’s.   I am hoping the 22 car will be back on top this weekend.”
 

Donald Theetge driver of the #24 Mercedes-Benz/Circuit Acura Chevrolet Camaro is looking to get back on the oval track this weekend where he is always a contender to win.  After a great showing at the Grand Prix de Trois Rivieres, finishing 7th he looks to come up with a strong showing here to get back in the championship points hunt.
 

“For us this weekend is going to be the most important race of the year,” said Theetge.  “If we want to get back in the point championship battle we will have to win and lead laps to make maximum points.  My team looks forward to the challenge.”
 

The Bumper to Bumper 300 takes place at Riverside International Speedway this Saturday August 18th, with gates opening at 12:30 p.m.  and the green flag at 8 p.m. Atlantic time.  For more event information and tickets please visit www.riversidespeedway.ca
 

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series has held events at this .333 high banked oval since it’s inception in 2007. This will be the 12th straight year the teams have made the trip east.

JAMES RIVER, NS (August 15, 2018) - NASCAR Pinty's Series (NPS) officials released a revised entry list late Tuesday for Saturday's Bumper to Bumper 300 showing North Carolina's Brandon McReynolds as the driver of the No. 28 car as a teammate to Ontario's D.J. Kennington, a two-time Bumper to Bumper 300 winner.

McReynolds, the son of Fox NASCAR TV analyst and former NASCAR Cup Series legendary crew chief Larry McReynolds, will make his NPS debut at Riverside on Saturday. Brandon McReynolds is an established racer in the United States with wins in the NASCAR K & N Pro Series and in the ARCA series and starts NASCAR's Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series. It is ironic he will drive the No. 28 car in the Bumper to Bumper 300 as it is the number his father is perhaps most well-known for as crew chief for the late Davey Allison.

"I'm really thankful to D.J. (Kennington) for this opportunity," said McReynolds from North Carolina on Wednesday morning. "He's a good friend. I totally respect everything he's done in racing in Canada and in the U.S. He's a racer so it's a thrill for me to be his teammate in my NASCAR Pinty's Series debut. We've talked about doing this for a while and it just worked out that I can make it this weekend. I'm looking for a good run, a solid finish, and that we can go for the win."

McReynolds will come to Nova Scotia from Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee where he will work with Gragson in Thursday's NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at the very same track that Riverside is a scale model of (0.333-mile for Riverside vs 0.533-mile at Bristol).

Other changes on the revised entry list for the Bumper to Bumper 300 include Kerry Micks in the No. 02 car, driving for Mark Dilley, the inaugural winner of the Bumper to Bumper 300 who was previously announced as the driver.

With 18 drivers from throughout Canada and the United States expected to enter the Bumper to Bumper 300, the field is stacked with talent including three series champions (Kennington, Andrew Ranger, L.P. Dumoulin) and 10 series race winners (Micks, Cole Powell, Kennington, Alex Tagliani, Donald Theetge, Ranger, L.P. Dumoulin, Donald Chisholm, Kevin Lacroix, and Pete Shepherd III).

L.P. Dumoulin leads the NPS point standings heading into Saturday's race with a slim 10-point advantage over Marc-Antoine Camirand. Tagliani sits third just one marker behind Camirand. Powell is two points behind Tagliani and Kennington is fifth and trailing fourth by just seven points. Only 20 points presently separate the top five championship contenders with the Bumper to Bumper 300 being round nine of 13 en route to the 2018 title.

Maritime League of Legends Cleared for Takeoff at Riverside Saturday

 

(BEDFORD, NS – August 15th, 2018) – The Maritime League of Legends Tour heads to Riverside International Speedway outside of Antigonish, Nova Scotia on Saturday, August 18th for the seventh round of the 2018 season. The Celtic Air Services 50 is the second stop for the Series to the high banked oval and is a part of the NASCAR Pinty’s Series Bumper to Bumper 300 weekend. Qualifying races for the Celtic Air Services 50 will take place at 4:30pm with the 50-lap feature going green at 6:15pm on Saturday evening.

 

Point leader Shelby Baker (Fall River, NS) kept his point lead in tact with a fourth place run at Scotia Speedworld during the Farrell’s Excavating Limited 50. The top five finish was Baker’s fifth in six races with the only “blemish” on his point tally coming at Riverside International Speedway in July. Baker will look to put that behind him as he searches for his first Maritime League of Legends Tour victory on the year Saturday in the Celtic Air Services 50.

 

A gain is a gain and Emily Meehan (Rawdon, NS) was able to chip three points off Baker’s point advantage last Saturday. Meehan leads a close pack including three-time feature winner on the year Craig MacDonald (Waverley, NS) and Fleet Brake Atlantic Rookie contender Sam Roger (Lower Onslow, NS). Meehan sits 27 points out of the lead but only eight points ahead of MacDonald and ten points up on Rogers with four races remaining in the year.

 

Michael Cormier (Grand-Barachois, NB) enters the Celtic Air Services 50 not only fifth in overall points but the leader by a wide margin in the Fleet Brake Atlantic Rookie of the Year chase. With Rogers missing the two races at Scotia Speedworld, it has allowed Cormier to build a 156 point advantage with just four races to go. Nathan Blackburn (Timberlea, NS) sits third in the freshman standings. Blackburn will enter the Celtic Air Services 50 looking to build on his best career Legend Tour finish of second from last week at Scotia Speedworld.

 

The Farrell brothers, Waylon and Will, are both pre-registered for Saturday’s 50-lap event. Waylon, the two time and reigning Series champion, was well in contention at Riverside in July before running out of fuel late in the feature. Will has had some strong runs as of late and with Riverside being one of his best tracks statistically, fans should keep an eye on the No. 31 Farrell’s Excavating Limited car Saturday.

 

Austin MacDonald (Pictou, NS) will make his racing return to the Maritimes with his Maritime League of Legends Tour debut at the Celtic Air Services 50. MacDonald has spent his summer racing down south with a focus on the Bojangles’ Summer Shootout at the Charlotte Motor Speedway and Thursday Thunder Presented by Papa John’s Pizza at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. After success in racing’s heartland, MacDonald returns to apply his lessons learned Saturday at Riverside International Speedway.

 

A number of Maritime League of Legends Tour drivers that are currently not pre-registered for the event are expected to make the haul to compete in the Celtic Air Services 50. Josh Langille (Coldbrook, NS), Kyle Shipley (Spryfield, NS) and hometown favorite Kevin MacDonald (Antigonish, NS) are among those looking to race away with a checkered flag from the famed high banked oval.

 

The NASCAR Pinty’s Series Weekend kicks off Friday, August 17 with the Henry's AUTOPRO 100 for the Napa Sportsman Series and the Passione Flooring Mini 50 for the MJS Holdings/Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour. On Saturday, August 18 it's the NASCAR Pintys' Series Bumper to Bumper 300 and the Maritime League of Legends Celtic Air Services 50.

 

Racing starts at 7 p.m. on Friday and on Saturday NASCAR qualifying is set for 3:00 p.m., Legends heat races at 4:30 p.m., followed by a NASCAR autograph session at 5:25 p.m., the Legends feature race at 6:15 p.m., NASCAR driver introductions at 7:25 p.m. and the Bumper to Bumper 300 at 8:00 p.m.  The grandstand gates and box office opens at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday and 4:00 p.m. Friday. A detailed schedule for the weekend can be found at RiversideSpeedway.ca.

 

Reserved and general admission tickets are available online at www.RiversideSpeedway.ca as either a weekend pass or single-day tickets. Reserved seats are only available in advance. Advance ticket sales close Thursday at 5:00 p.m. General admission tickets will be available at the gate on race day.

« Last post by CanadianRacingOnline on August 17, 2018, 11:28:30 AM »
Payea, Sweet Lead ACT U.S. Stars to Chaudiere for Bacon Bowl

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                             ACT081418-39




<<ATTACHED PHOTO (IMG_0784.JPG): Former ACT Champion Nick Sweet, seen here competing at Thunder Road earlier this season, will make the trip to Autodrome Chaudiere this Saturday, August 18 for the Bacon Bowl. (Daniel Holben photo)>>

 

Waterbury, VT – Some of the biggest stars of the American-Canadian Tour (ACT) will be heading north of the border this Saturday, August 18. The Bacon Bowl 200 at Vallée-Jct., QC’s Autodrome Chaudiere is shaping up to be the biggest Late Model event of the year in Quebec and is expected to attract racers from throughout the province as well as the northeastern United States.

 

Colchester, VT’s Scott Payea and Barre, VT’s Nick Sweet, the two most recent ACT Late Model Tour champions, are among those who have committed to the high-profile event. The 200-lap affair will pay $10,000 CAD to the winner. With nearly $40,000 CAD in posted purse and point fund awards, it will be one of the richest events of the year for ACT-type Late Models.

 

Payea has had a superb season on U.S. soil with two wins and six podium finishes driving for RPM Motorsports. This record has given him a 41-point lead in the ACT Late Model Tour standings. Sweet has run a partial schedule in 2018, but finished third in the Summer Showdown Series opener at Oxford Plains Speedway. He will pilot a car from the Mad Dog Motorsports stable that Kyle Busch raced at Thunder Road in 2017.

 

“It’s going to be nice to get back in the seat,” Sweet said. “It’s a unique race that pays well. Chaudiere is a place that’s I’ve never had outstanding success at, but I like a challenge, and we’ll see if we can get in the show and have a good time.”

 

Payea and Sweet will be joined by a few other U.S. drivers in making the trek to Vallée-Jct. ACT rookie Christopher Pelkey of Barre, VT is another racer who has committed to the event. Pelkey has shown steady improvement throughout the season and also sits sixth in Thunder Road Late Model points. Thunder Road regular Mike Foster has also stated he will be heading to Chaudiere.

 

In addition to sporting a sizeable purse, the Bacon Bowl is also the finale of both the 2018 ACT Triple Crown and the Chaudiere Triple Crown. All drivers who make the trip to Chaudiere will combine their two best ACT Late Model Tour finishes so far this season with their finish in Saturday’s main event.

 

The top drivers in the final Triple Crown standings will receive cash bonuses. This includes a $2,000 USD award to the champion. Payea currently is tied for the ACT Triple Crown lead with Jimmy Hebert, while Sweet sits fourth in the standings, 14 points behind Payea.

 

The U.S. contingent will join the best Quebec racers in chasing the $10,000 CAD top prize. Multi-time ACT champion Patrick Laperle of St-Denis, QC leads the Chaudiere Triple Crown standings and will go for the title on Saturday. Former Série ACT champions Karl Allard and Dany Trépanier are also in the top-5 in Chaudiere Triple Crown points. The track’s weekly Late Model class is expected to be out in force as well.

 

Qualifying for the Bacon Bowl 200 gets underway at 4:00pm on Saturday, August 18 with group time trials for the ACT Late Models. Heat races for all divisions begin at 5:00pm. The Late Models will be joined by the NASCAR Sport Compact Amateur, Slingshot, and Vintage divisions. The pits open at 12:00pm and the front gates open at 2:00pm. Admission is $42 CAD (appx. $32 USD) for adults and free for kids ages 17 and under.

Two Dozen Entries Filed for McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250

 

Five former race champions on early registration list

 

(Geary, NB – August 15th, 2018) – One week after registration opened for the 18th Annual McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250, the entry list sits at 24 for the $15,000-to-win Pro Stock event at Geary, New Brunswick’s Speedway 660. Entries have been filed from all three Maritime Provinces and the State of Maine for the Sunday, September 2nd classic.

 

The first to the registration window, much like the 2016 event, was the Rodgers team from Smithtown, New Brunswick. Andrew Rodgers will attempt to race his first McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 on Sunday, September 2nd. Rodgers is fresh off his first career 250-lap race after racing his No. 42 R.A. Lawrence Engineering Chevrolet in the Toromont Cat 250 at Scotia Speedworld on August 11th.

 

Nicholas Naugle (Dartmouth, NS), Matt Harris (Fredericton Junction, NB) and Steve Halpin (Saint John, NB) were close behind Rodgers for the top spot in the race to register for the 250.

 

Within minutes of each other, Dave O’Blenis (Boundary Creek, NB), Johnny Clark (Hallowell, ME) and Lonnie Sommerville (Barnesville, NB) entered the race. Inaugural 250-winner Kirk Thibeau (Presque Isle, ME) has filed an entry for September 2nd and King Racing has also entered two cars, one of which is expected to include reigning champion Cassius Clark (Farmington, ME). Between the five, they own nine of the previous 17 McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 victories.

 

The RE/MAX East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock division is well represented in the early registration list. Besides O’Blenis, 2018 feature winners Ryan Messer (Harvey, NB), Greg Fahey (St. Stephen, NB), Ashton Tucker (Lyttleton, NB) and Brent Roy (Hanwell, NB) have filed entries for SpeedWeekend. Roy and O’Blenis each took a Best of the Best Pro Stock 100 win earlier this season.

 

Five time Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour champion John Flemming (Halifax, NS) will look to complete his Maritime Triple Crown on SpeedWeekend. No driver has won all three major 250-lap races in the region. Flemming is missing the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 to go with his two IWK 250 wins and his Toromont Cat 250 to complete his crown.

 

Cushman Competition will return to the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 with one of Maine’s hottest young talents behind the wheel. Austin Teras (Gray, ME) made his mark on Legends racing where he raced to numerous titles including an INEX Winter Nationals and NELCAR championship. The 15-year old has made the jump to Super Late Model competition and is turning heads with every lap on track. Jay Cushman won the 2005 edition of the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 with Scott Chubbuck.

 

Chris Hughes (Brackley Beach, PE) will make his return to Speedway 660 on SpeedWeekend. Hughes, driving the No. 32C  for Subaru of Moncton, is a former pole winner at Speedway 660 in Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour competition and is looking forward to making the haul to the Geary woods to compete in the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250.

 

A complete pre-registration list, by the order of registration, is included below. Online registration for teams in both the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 and the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 150 are available now at Speedway660.com.
