CHAMPION TO BE CROWED AT SEASON FINALE DARTMOUTH DODGE 200

The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will make one final stop this summer at Scotia Speedworld on Saturday, September 10th for their season finale where a champion will emerge. Five of Canada’s finest stock car drivers remain within striking distance of the coveted championship as well as the $10,000.00 championship cheque. They will have to battle each other as well as 25 other talented teams from across the Maritimes before they can claim the title. Qualifying for the Dartmouth Dodge 200 will begin at 4:00 p.m.; feature racing is expected to get underway at 6:00 p.m. Gates and Box Office open at 1:00 p.m.

Championship points will be the only thing on the minds of many teams participating in Saturday’s season finale. Only 13 points separate Wayne Smith (Timberlea, NS) who currently sits atop the standings, from current Tour champion Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB). Smith entered the penultimate CARQUEST 100 at Petty International with a single point lead. Smith gained his 13 point advantage by leading the most laps which garnered him 10 bonus points, Smith also finished one spot ahead of Tucker when the checkers flew for an additional 2 points. Tucker is coming off a big win last weekend at Speedway 660 and will be looking to carry that success into the finale. Both Drivers are former and multi-time Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Champions and all in attendance can rest assured these two drivers will be leaving everything on the asphalt at the Dartmouth Dodge 200.

Also in the hunt are veterans John Flemming (Halifax, NS) and Kent Vincent (Crapud, PE), both of whom have wins on the Tour this season. Flemming and Vincent enter Saturday’s Dartmouth Dodge 200 in third and fourth respectively with just 3 markers separating the two. Flemming is a three-time champion and remains the only back-to-back champion earning the title in 2002 and 2003. Flemming got his first win in over 4 years at the Air Show Atlantic 100 at Oyster Bed Speedway in July. Vincent is the Tour’s most recent winner, picking up the checkers at Petty International less than two weeks ago in the CARQUEST 100. Vincent has never won the title and has been competing on the Tour since its inception in 2000. Vincent is just 24 points behind Smith and has an opportunity to become the first Island champion in series history on Saturday night.

Hoping to upset the foursome of veterans is Darren MacKinnon, (Charlottetown, PE) who blasted his way onto the scene this season with 2 wins, 7 top fives, 9 top tens and now sits just 37 points behind Smith in fifth position. MacKinnon picked up his first career victory this season in front of his hometown fans at Oyster Bed Speedway back in June. MacKinnon and his team have carried that momentum through the entire season with impressive finishes. MacKinnon suffered 2 DNF’s, one of which came at Scotia Speedworld in the season opener CARQUEST 100. The team will be looking to leave the season finale on an entirely different note – as the 2011 Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Champion.
