(Halifax, NS – January 22, 2018) The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour (PST) is excited to announce their 2018 schedule of events. The schedule features 12 stock car racing events at four unique venues throughout the three Maritime Provinces from May to September. This year marks the 18th season for the popular Late Model touring series.

A number of small changes highlight the 2018 schedule. Petty International Raceway in River Glade, New Brunswick, will open the season on the Victoria Day weekend with a Saturday, May 19th event. The series will then head to Scotia Speedworld in Enfield, Nova Scotia for Round Two on the Series and the first of four events at the 3/10-mile oval.

While Petty International Raceway and Riverside International Speedway in Antigonish, Nova Scotia will each host three events on the 12-race schedule, Oyster Bed Speedway will regain an event in 2018. The high banked 1/3-mile oval will host two races on the series for the first time since 2012, taking place on Saturday, June 30th and Saturday, August 4th.

For the first year since Series inception, Speedway 660 will not host a Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour event.

Returning by popular demand, all feature races will be a minimum of 150-laps in length. There will also be numerous extended distance races including the prestigious IWK 250 on Saturday, July 14th at Riverside International Speedway.

Race sponsors, support classes and times for each event will be released in the coming weeks.
