The elite stock car racing series will make stops in five Maritime markets across three Provinces during the 12 event season. With 2017 marking Canada’s 150th birthday, the Series will celebrate the historic occasion by making every Parts for Trucks feature race a minimum of 150 laps!
The season kicks off at Scotia Speedworld, with a 150-lap event on Saturday, May 20th. The Series will make three additional stops at Scotia Speedworld, including a 150-lap feature on Saturday, June 24th, the prestigious 18th Annual Atlantic Cat 250 on Saturday, August 12th and the Series 200-lap season finale on Saturday, September 16th.
The Tour will also visit Riverside International Speedway. The high banked track will host two 150-lap races on Saturday, June 17th and Saturday, September 9th along with the much anticipated IWK 250, which will take place on Saturday, July 15th.
New Brunswick will host four events on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour’s 17th season. The first of which will take place on Saturday, June 10th at Petty International Raceway. The Tour will follow their first visit to the River Glade track with two more appearances, a 150-lap feature on Saturday, July 22nd and a special 200-lap event will highlight the 53rd River Glade International Weekend on Saturday, August 26th.

Fans on Prince Edward Island will be able to see their favorite drivers battle it out for 150-laps on the tight confines of Oyster Bed Speedway on Saturday, August 5th.
