The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will make its third and final visit of the season to Riverside International this Saturday for the Lucas Oil 150. The high banks of Riverside’s 1/3 mile oval will play host to race 11 of 12 for the high-octane touring series. The event will also mark the third and final Lucas Oil presented race of the season. With local heroes and championship contenders all expected in the field on Saturday,
action in the Lucas Oil 150 is sure to be intense. Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials get underway at 5:10pm, with racing slated for 6:00pm.
With only two races remaining on the 2014 schedule the chase for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Championship is quickly coming to a close. Four-time series champ John Flemming (Halifax, NS) holds a 28 point lead over fellow three-time series champion Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB). Tucker has just a slim 12 point lead over Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell, PE) who currently sits in third. With two races remaining and a maximum of a 60 point gain per race the championship chase is far from over.
Also still in championship contention are the top two Exide Batteries Rookies from 2013, Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) and Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) who sit in fourth and fifth respectively with just one point between them. Blenkhorn is 71 points behind leader Flemming, but with the 60 point swing and trouble for any of the leaders these two could find themselves in the hunt at the Season Finale Dartmouth Dodge 200 at Scotia Speedworld on September 13th.
Hot on these sophomores’ heels and looking to improve their year-end standings are Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS) and Greg Proude who currently hold the sixth and seventh positions. Turple is just five points ahead of Proude and 12 points behind third place Hicken. Turple is a two-time champion of the series and Proude is looking for his first championship. Mathematically they are both still in contention heading into Saturday’s Lucas Oil 150.
The Napa Sportsman Series will kick off the show with the Highland Home Building Centers 75 lap feature prior to the Lucas Oil 150.
