Enfield, NSís Shawn Turple continues to hold a slim lead in the championship pointís standings, 35 points ahead of Shawn Tucker of Fredericton, NB. Tucker has been lurking in second place trying to make up valuable ground between him and Turple. Kent Vincent of Crapaud, PE by virtue of his win at the Parts For Trucks 100 last weekend at Riverside Speedway, has moved into third place in the pointís standings. Wayne Smith of Timberlea, NS is in fourth spot and Chris Hughes, Winsloe, PE is in fifth. Only 77 points separate first to fifth in points in this competitive CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour.
Smith took the Marinus Verhagen Enterprises pole challenge in the last race and charged from 24th place to 2nd before a flat tire forced him to pit. He finished 15th on the day. Expect to see some of these drivers in the top rung of the points accept the pole challenge on August 18th to help reduce Turpleís point lead.
