FLEMMING WINS SECOND IWK 250
AT RIVERSIDE SPEEDWAY

(Antigonish, NS, July 19, 2014) John Flemming (Halifax, NS) captured the IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body at Riverside International Speedway by besting Donald Chisholm (Antigonish, NS) on a restart with three laps remaining in the race. It is Flemming’s second IWK 250 win. Chisholm, who dominated and led 218 laps of the event, had to settle for the runner -up spot for the second consecutive season in the biggest race of the year at his home track. Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) edged out Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) for third with veteran George Koszkulics (New Glasgow, NS) rounding out the top five.

Flemming, in the #97 Happy Harry’s Affordable Building Center Dodge Charger, started off his day by winning a Dartmouth Dodge Heat Race. Chisholm and Koszkulics also picked up heat race qualifier victories. Reigning NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Matt Crafton (Tulare, CA) paced the field in both the King Freight Dash and the Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials, putting up a 14.197 second lap in qualifying. Brad Mann (Glen Levit, NB), in his final Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour start of his 30 year career, took home the Exide Batteries Hard Charger, picking up 12 positions in the IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body to finish 14th in the 29 car field.

Prior to the IWK 250 feature Ken Farrell delivered a moving tribute to track owner John Chisholm. Chisholm passed away on July 4th at the age of 68. Chisholm opened Riverside International Speedway in 1969 and was also responsible for the rebuild in 2006 which produced the magnificent facility we all enjoy today. Tonight’s IWK 250 was dedicated to John’s memory.

The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour doesn’t race next weekend, but returns to action on Saturday, August 2nd when they travel to Oyster Bed Speedway on picturesque Prince Edward Island. Visit www.maritimeprostocktour.com for complete event details and coverage.
