SMITH WINS THE CARQUEST 100
AT RACEWAY PARK

 

Wayne Smith won the CARQUEST 100 at Raceway Park, PE, located in Oyster Bed Bridge, near Charlottetown, PE on Saturday night. Smith took the lead on a lap 90 restart and held off a late charge from Chris Hughes of Brackley Beach, PE to take his second Halcraft Print Checkered Flag of the season. Hughes battled Lonnie Sommerville of Saint John for second place. Shawn Turple of Enfield, NS and Craig Slaunwhite of Halifax, NS rounded out the top five.

Hughes won the Coast Tire Most Laps Led Award. Over 3000 fans saw five lead changes during the course of the event. Only six cautions slowed the race, which took fourty eight minutes to complete.

None of the top five cars opted to take the Hipertech Pole Challenge.

Kent Vincent of Crapaud, PE, Robbie MacLean of Winsloe, PE and Donald Chisholm of Antigonish, NS won heat races. Hughes won the Dash for the Pole, featuring the top nine finishers in the Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials. He also had the fastest time on the 1/4 mile oval, with an average speed of nearly 67 miles per hour.

Twenty eight of the Maritimes top drivers attempted to qualify for the Main Feature.
