Carquest Pro Stock Tour Points Battle to Come Down
to Saturday's Season Finale at Scotia Speedworld
Six Drivers Still Have Mathematical Chance at Title
Series PR Report

The CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour Championship battle comes to a head this Saturday at the Season Finale Parts for Trucks 200.  After 10 races, 57 drivers, four tracks in three provinces it all comes down to the final event of the season. On Saturday afternoon at Scotia Speedworld someone will be crowned the 2010 CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour Champion, a prestigious title that every stock car driver wants on his racing resume.  To add some additional drama to the day, NASCAR legend Ken Schrader will go head to head with the Pro Stocks at the 3/10 mile oval, Schrader will be driving the #10 Parts for Trucks sponsored Chevrolet.  Grandstands open at 1:00pm; Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials will begin at 3:10pm with racing action slated to start at 4:00pm.

Mathematically six drivers are in contention for the Championship; however four drivers have emerged as the real contenders.  Fredericton NB’s Shawn Tucker is the current points leader and holds a slim 16 point margin over his closest competitor and reigning Champion Shawn Turple of Enfield NS.  Timberlea NS’s Wayne Smith is 29 points behind Tucker and Donald Chisholm of Antigonish NS is just 3 markers behind Smith. Chisholm may be the dark horse of the four contenders as the three drivers ahead of him are all former or reigning CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour Champions.  These drivers will be battling a talented field of 26 drivers in an attempt to lead as many laps as possible and gain maximum points in order to clinch the elusive and illustrious title…and of course the $10,000.00 Champions cheque.

Also on the line at the Season Finale is bonus money for the top point-getters in the four Parts for Trucks sponsored races.  Shawn Turple currently leads the way in the Parts for Trucks challenge with 599 points, followed closely by Donald Chisholm with 586 points and Shawn Tucker six markers back at 580. Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell PE) and Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay NS) round out the top five with 566 and 563 points respectively.

Saturday's event will also feature a 50 lap Maritime League of Legends race and an on-track autograph session where fans can meet the stars of the CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour and NASCAR driver Ken Schrader.
