Celebrate Canada Day Weekend at Petty With Pro Stock Tour and More
RIVER GLADE, NB (June 26, 2013) - There is no better place for Maritime race fans to spend this coming Canada Day weekend than Petty International Raceway. With two shows scheduled, one for Saturday and one for Sunday, fans can sit back and enjoy seven different divisions of high octane stock car racing - and then when it's over - a festive fireworks display to celebrate Canada's 146th birthday.
Centre-stage on Saturday will be the Lucas Oil 150 for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour - the first race of 2013 in New Brunswick for the popular touring series. A full field of pro stocks are expected including series point leader and three-time champion John Flemming, along with reigning series champion Shawn Turple - both from Nova Scotia, and defending race winner Jonathan Hicken from Prince Edward Island. Local favourites Shawn Tucker, Mike Stevens, and Brad Mann are hoping to defend New Brunswick pride against other Tour favourites. Joining the pro stocks for Saturday's show are the Mister Transmission Mini Stocks and a twin 25-lap feature for the Leisure Days RV Bandoleros.
