CHISHOLM TAKES EMOTIONAL VICTORY
AT IWK 250

 

(Antigonish, NS- July 16, 2018) – After many attempts and heartbreaking losses Donald Chisholm (Antigonish, NS) finally made it to Victory Lane at the IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body, taking home the John W. Chisholm Memorial Cup. Chisholm has been to Victory Lane 5 times during his career at his home track of Riverside International Speedway but the prestigious IWK 250 and Memorial Cup named after his Father had eluded him until tonight. Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS) gave chase until the checkers flew but came up just short taking second place. Two-time NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Champion Matt Crafton (Tulare, CA) had his best IWK 250 finish to date coming home third. Ron MacGillivray 150 winner Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) and Darren MacKinnon (Charlottetown, PE) completed the top five.

Competition got underway with five Atlantic Tiltload Heat Races for the 35 competitors vying to make the 31 car field. Heat races were won by Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS), Jeff Fultz (Troutman, NC), Greg Proude (Springvale, PE), Donald Chisholm and George Koszkulics (New Glasgow, NS). John Rankin (St. Martin’s, NB) won the Atlantic Tiltload B Feature.

The Exide Batteries Rookie of the Race went to Nevin Scott (Marshfield, PE). The King Freight Lines Future Winner Award was won by Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) who finished ninth. Chisholm pocketed the Linde Most Laps Led Award, pacing the field for 231 of the 250 circuits.

The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is in action next weekend for the Irving Oil Blending & Packaging 150 at Petty International Raceway, located just outside on Moncton NB.
