Petty Nabs Third Pro Stock Tour Date for 2013
RIVER GLADE, NB (January 3, 2013) - Management at Petty International Raceway are pleased to announce the facility will see a third Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour (PST) date in 2013, increased by one event from the past two seasons when Petty saw two PST championship races.
"This is big for us," said Craig McFetridge, co-owner at Petty Int'l Raceway. "We've been hoping for three Pro Stock Tour events since we re-opened the track two years ago, but it didn't work out. We're glad to be able to offer Maritime race fans another Tour-sanctioned race this year, especially those closest to us in New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island."
The Petty Pro Stock Tour dates for 2013 are June 1, June 29, and August 24. These are three of 12 championship points events that will determine the 2013 Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour champion. The August 24 date will be the highlight of the 49th River Glade International - the longest running stock car race in Canada."We are pleased that Petty International Raceway has picked up an additional date in 2013 when one became available," said Ken Cunning, general manager of the series. "The folks ay Petty do a good job of promoting their events and we look forward to working with them."
Prominent New Brunswick racers who compete on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour are three-time series champion Shawn Tucker (Fredericton), multi-time winner Mike Stevens (Salisbury), and 2012 PST rookie of the year Steve Halpin (Saint John).
