Registered Drivers For 2007
Halifax, NS (April 9, 2007) – The first registration forms are in for the 2007 CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour and Wayne Smith, Timberlea NS, is the first driver to register. Smith, a former champion, was the first to register his number 44 in 2006 as well.
Joining the Oval Outlaw in submitting their registrations by April 5th are two drivers who finished 2006in the top ten in points, Brad Mann, Glen Livet NB and Kent Vincent, Crapaud PE. Also returning is Kent Livingston, Charlottetown PE after a disastrous start to 2006, destroying his car in a pre-season practice. Livingston will pilot the Dwaine McKay owned Monte Carlo.
Two 2006 EIT Race Radio Rookie of the Year candidates, Mike Stevens, Riverview NB and Roger Crane, Montague PE are back, after completing successful inaugural seasons.
Five rookies have the potential to join the EIT Race Radio Rookie of the Year hunt on the CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour, led by Graham Spinney, Lower Argyle. Spinney, a lobster fisherman who raced a few races last year has changed his car number to 34 for 2007, the same number as the lobster district he fishes. Lonnie Sommerville, Saint John NB and Jonathan Hicken, Brudenell PE join Spinney as first year drivers. Fellow newcomers Wayne Chase, Lake George, NB and Al Snellgrove, Moncton NB certainly give the ROTY field a distinct New Brunswick flavour in the early going.
