Halifax, NS (June 13, 2007) – The Parts For Trucks 100 is set for Saturday, June 16th at New Brunswick International Speedway in Geary, NB, near Fredericton. The race is round three of the CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour 10 event summer series. It is also the first round of the Parts For Trucks Challenge, which sees drivers competing for bonus awards during the four Parts For Trucks Events.
Fredericton native Shawn Tucker is ready to defend his turf on his home track and hopes to take the lead in the CARQUEST Bonus Points Fund. $50,000.00 is paid out at year-end to the top 20 eligible competitors, with the winner taking home $10,000.00.
