pro stock tour(Halifax, NS, July 31 2013) The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will make its first and only visit to Prince Edward Island this Saturday for the Exit Realty PEI 100 at Oyster Bed Speedway; round eight of 12 for the Maritime based touring series. Eight Island drivers are expected to be in the field this Saturday, including Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell, PE) who won at his home track last summer. Qualifying for the Exit Realty PEI 100 gets underway with Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials at 5:10 PM, racing action at 6:00 PM.

John Flemming (Halifax, NS) continues to lead the point standings and has amassed a substantial point lead over current series champion Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS). Flemming sits in top spot with 1407 points, 81 markers ahead of Turple’s 1326. Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) sits in third just five points behind Turple but is carrying momentum having won the last two races, including the prestigious IWK 250 in which he beat out NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Brad Keselowski for the marquee victory.

Positions fourth through seventh belong to Island drivers. Greg Proude (Springvale, PE) leads the six full-time Island driver contingent, followed by Dylan Gosbee (Cornwall, PE) who won his first career Pro Stock victory just over a month ago which vaulted him to fifth in points. Darren MacKinnon (Charlottetown, PE) sits in sixth followed by Jonathan Hicken in seventh. Just 23 points separates these four drivers, all of whom will be looking to turn heads at their home track.

Rounding out the hometown favorites are Kent Vincent (Westmoreland, PE) who is currently 12th in the chase for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Championship. Vincent has five career wins, two of which have come at the 1/3 mile track he calls home. Terry Dougay (Albany, PE) has had some issues this season but continues to battle week in and week out and sits 17th in points. Making his third start this Saturday is Brodie MacQuarrie (Winslow, PE) who will be at the helm of the #63 Big Poppa Motorsports entry. Robbie MacLean (Winslow, PE) is expected to make his first start of the season.
