Ben Rowe Enters The Atlantic Cat 250

(Halifax, NS, July 28, 2010) Ben Rowe of Turner, Maine will compete at the Atlantic Cat 250 at Scotia Speedworld on August 6th and 7th – A crown jewel event of the CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour. Rowe is a five-time PASS Champion, four on the PASS North Tour and as well as the 2009 PASS South Champion. He won the 2003 Atlantic Cat 250 beating Larry Gelinas, Scarborough, ME and Johnny Clark, Hallowell, Maine to the checkered flag.

A second generation driver, Ben and his father Mike make up the Turner, Maine Rowe family duo who have been so successful on the short tracks of Eastern seaboard. The addition of Ben Rowe on the list on entrants for the Atlantic Cat 250 has just made it more difficult for the other drivers to win the race. He had legendary on-track battles with the late Scott Fraser at speedways all over the eastern seaboard, providing fans with exciting racing action. Rowe would like nothing better to win the Atlantic CAT 250 and take home the Scott Fraser Memorial trophy, named after his old race buddy, for his display case.

Rowe will drive the # 10 Chevrolet out of the Steven Henderson shop in Truro, NS. Henderson fields the Dexter Construction / Municipal Contracting sponsored Chevrolet of current CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour point’s leader Shawn Turple. The # 10 car is a sister to Turple’s # 0, which means it will be stout.

The Atlantic CAT 250 runs at Scotia Speedworld August 6th and 7th. The prestigious two-day event attracts the best stock car drivers from Canada and the US, and boasts an impressive list of past champions. The Atlantic CAT 250 is part of the CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour's Triple Crown mini-series. Drivers and crews will be vying for a purse of over $50,000.00 Saturday evening on the 3/10-mile oval, located adjacent to the Halifax Stanfield International Airport.
