About The tour
The Maritime Pro Stock Tour was founded in the spring of 2001 to provide a regional forum offering exciting door-handle to door-handle stock car racing entertainment.
Parts for Trucks came on board as title sponsor for the series in 2011. CARQUEST Auto Parts was the Tour's title sponsor from 2001- 2010. The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is considered the highest level of stock car racing in Canada and recognized as one of the healthiest touring series in North America. We are very proud to say the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour draws the largest audience of any summer sport in the Maritimes.
Maritime Canadian stock car racers have long been recognized as some of the best in short track racing. The Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour not only provides a forum for some of the best racing action you'll see anywhere, but also a competitive environment for racers, newcomers and veterans, to sharpen their skills.
Racecars driven on the Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour have bodies that closely resemble their streetcar counterparts. Body styles must be approved by Tour Officials and must meet strict measurement regulations.
As goes progress in any industry so does it in stock car racing. As with other industries new technology is largely unproven and usually costly. While each competitor strives to be on the cutting edge not all can afford it so in an effort to provide a level playing field for all the Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour is constantly reviewing the latest products and making determinations regarding their use to benefit the majority.
The Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour visits five different race tracks in the three Maritime Provinces on the east coast of Canada: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Facilities are required to meet specific criteria for the Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour shows, ensuring quality shows for the audience and the competitors.
