Petty Ready For Grand Re-Opening
RIVER GLADE, NB (June 4, 2011) - Petty International Raceway is ready for its grand-reopening later today - the first racing at the facility in more than a decade.
Friday's practice session was planned for the racers but a good trial run for track management as well.

Wayne Smith was second quick, followed by John Flemming, Dan MacKay, Mike Stevens, Marty prevost, Shawn Turple, Greg Proude, Jerome Kehoe, and Daryl Mahar.
The teams were testing in preparation for today's headline act, the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Lucas Oil 100. The race card will also feature the Atlantic Open Wheel Tour and 4-cylinder racing.
Grandstand tickets are available at the track box office starting at 3 p.m.; the pit area opens at 12:30 p.m.
Weather permitting; fans will also be treated to an on track autograph session featuring the stars of the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour.
