(August 18, 2012 - Antigonish, NS)
– Riverview, NB’s Mike Stevens set sail from the pole position on Saturday night at Riverside International Speedway to lead all 100 laps in the caution-free Lucas Oil 100. The win is Stevens’s second of the season, both coming at Riverside. The victory gives Stevens’s his third career win in the #4 R. Stevens Mechanical Impala. Second on the night was John Flemming (Halifax), who had point leader Shawn Turple (Enfield) and Daryl Mahar (Hubley) dueling it out behind him at the stripe. Flemming now sits eight points back of Turple with just two races to go. Completing the top five was the #29 car of Greg Proude (Springvale, PE).  

By dominating the event, Stevens pocketed the Linde Most Laps Led Award, the King Freight Lines Halfway Award and the Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials (14.336 seconds). The Fast Eddie Racewear Dash for Cash was picked up by local favorite Donald Chisholm (Antigonish), who faded to ninth in the feature event. Dartmouth Dodge Heat Races were won by Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) and Jerome Kehoe (Sydney), who edged out George Koszkulics (New Glasgow) in an exciting finish to Heat Two. Brad Eddy (Lower Sackville) captured his best finish of the season by taking 8th place and the Exide Batteries Rookie of the Race Award. Kent Vincent (Crapaud, PE) received the Absolute Traffic Services Hard Charger Award. The Lucas Oil 100 took 25 minutes to complete.

The Napa Sportsman Series kicked off the show with a 50 lap feature, which saw Lakeside’s, NS’s Russell Smith Jr pick up the victory.
