Koszkulics Wins Fifth Career Victory at Ron MacGillivray Chev Buick GMC 150

 

(Antigonish,NS, June 13, 2015) Hometown favourite George Koskulics (New Glasgow, NS) won his fifth career Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour victory in front of a capacity crowd at Riverside International Speedway Saturday night. He took the lead from Nova Racing teammate Donald Chisholm (Antigonish, NS) on lap 135 of the 150 lap main feature. Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS) finished third after a thrilling 15 lap battle in the final laps of the race against Brudenell, PE’s Jonathan Hicken. Porter’s Lake, NS’s Cole Butcher rounded out the top five of the Ron MacGillivray Chevrolet Buick GMC 150.

Chisholm used his hometrack advantage and laid down an impressive 14.335 second lap to take the Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials award and followed it up with a win in the King Freight Dash For Cash featuring the top eight cars from Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials. The remainder of the starting lineup was determined through the Dartmouth Dodge Heat Races which saw Greg Proude (Springvale, PE) and Robbie MacEwen (Charlottetown, PE) victorious. Exide Batteries Rookie of the Race Award went to Cornwall, PE’s Joel Hickox with an 18th place finish.

The NAPA Sportsman Series entertained fans for an exciting 50 lap feature prior to the Ron MacGillivray Chev Buick GMC 150 with Corey Breen (Antigonish, NS) crossing the line for the checkered flag ahead of Shawn Waterfield (Sydney, NS) and Brad DeCoste (Antigonish, NS).
