TURPLE TAKES SECOND PRO STOCK TOUR VICTORY OF SEASON SPEEDWAY 660

(Fredericton, NB, July 12, 2014) Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS) won his second race of the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour season Saturday night at Speedway 660 in Geary, New Brunswick. Turple, a two-time series champion, inherited the lead on Lap 72 when then leader Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) was relegated to the back of the field after jumping his third restart of the caution filled race. Tucker managed to make his way back to finish third behind John Flemming (Halifax, NS), who also came from the back of the field after a flat tire forced him to pit in the first half of the event. Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) and Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell, PE) dodged a last lap melee in turn three to take the fourth and fifth place spots at the finish.  

To start the day, Blenkhorn became a four- time Atlantic Tiltload Time Trial Winner after a quick 13.635 second lap. It was Flemming that earned the right to start the Main Feature on the pole after crossing the line first in the King Freight Dash For Cash. Two exciting Dartmouth Dodge Heat Races determined the starting positions for the remainder of the field which saw Darren MacKinnon (Charlottetown, PE) best Turple  on a last lap pass and Dave O’Blenis (Boundary Creek, NB) win a three wide battle to the checkers over Matt Harris (Fredericton Junction, NB) and Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS). Tucker led 51 laps to take home the Linde Most Laps Led Award. Turple improved his starting position by 8 spots to take the Exide Batteries Hard Charger Award.

After five events, Flemming will maintain the point lead by five points over Tucker. Turple, Blenkhorn, and Proude complete the top five in the standings after leaving Speedway 660.

The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is back in action next Saturday, July 19 at Riverside International Speedway for the first extended feature of the 2014 season – The IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body.
