Lucas Oil 100 to Open Petty International Raceway Saturday
The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will rechristen Petty International Raceway this Saturday, June 4th with the Lucas Oil 100. The ¼ mile oval located in River Glade NB, just outside of Moncton will once again see cheering fans in the grandstands and racecars on the asphalt for the first time since 2000. The LUCAS OIL 100 will open the season at the newly refurbished Petty International Raceway, round 2 of twelve for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour. Racing action starts at 6:00 pm, with Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials set to begin at 5:10 pm. Box office and grandstands open at 3:00 pm.
Petty Raceway was first opened in October 1983, the track was owned an operated by Jerry Campbell and saw weekly racing along with several special events including MASCAR. The track, then know as Petty Raceway, saw its last event run on September 23, 2000 – a race which was ironically won by future owner and multi-time Pro Stock Tour champion Wayne Smith.
Fans and drivers alike will see a totally renovated facility at Saturday's Lucas Oil 100. In the fall of 2010 Brett Benoit, Craig McFetridge, and Wayne Smith purchased the facility and quickly got underway with major renovations on and off the track. Fans can expect ample seating, parking and a very fast oval! This will be a historic event that no Maritime stock car racing fan should miss.
Opening for the Lucas Oil 100 is the Atlantic Open Wheel Tour and 4-cylinders. Weather permitting; fans will also be treated to an on track autograph session featuring the stars of the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour.
Admission for the Lucas Oil 100 is $25.00 for adults; $10.00 for youth aged 8-15; children 7 and under are admitted free. All children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Pit admission is $30.00 and restricted to those 16 and older. Tickets are available at the gate on race day (cash only) or in advance at Ticket Atlantic outlets (Atlantic Superstores), by phone 1.877.451.1221 or www.ticketatlantic.com. Advance tickets are available for grandstand adult and youth admission; advance ticket holders will have a special entrance to expedite entry.
