BLENKHORN PICKS UP FIRST VICTORY
OF THE SEASON AT RIVERSIDE

 

(Antigonish, NS, June 11, 2016) Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) picked up his seventh career Series victory at the Ron MacGillivray Chev Buick GMC 150 at Riverside International Speedway in front of a capacity crowd. Blenkhorn battled throughout the race with reigning Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Champion Donald Chisholm (Antigonish, NS) but it would be Blenkhorn getting the best of the hometown favorite on a final restart with seven laps remaining. Cassius Clark (Farmington, ME) brought the #13 car home in third, followed by George Koszkulics (New Glasgow, NS) and sophomore driver DJ Casey (Prospect, NS).

Atlantic Tiltload Heat Races began the racing action for the Ron MacGillivray Chevrolet Buick GMC 150. Chisholm, Blenkhorn, Greg Proude (Springvale, PE) and Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS) each picked up qualifying race victories. Blenkhorn and Chisholm split the Linde Most Laps Led Award after each leading 75 laps in the feature. For the second straight race, Casey was the recipient of the King Freight Future Winners Award. Harry Ross White (Noel Road, NS) took home the Exide Batteries Rookie of the Race Award by finishing 12th in the main feature. 

The NAPA Sportsman Series entertained fans for an exciting 50 lap feature prior to the Ron MacGillivray Chev Buick GMC 150 with Waylon Farrell (Conception Bay South, NL) crossing the line for the checkered flag ahead of Corey Breen (Antigonish, NS) and Dale Richardson (Stellarton, NS).
