(Moncton, NB, May 19, 2018) – Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) recorded his first victory of 2018 by winning the Lucas Oil 150 on Saturday evening at Petty International Raceway. Blenkhorn held off Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) on numerous restarts, including the final one with seven laps remaining. Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS) finished third on the evening after fending off late race challenges from Dylan Gosbee (Cornwall, PE) and defending Series champion Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS)

Four Atlantic Tiltload heat races kicked-off an exhilarating night of racing. Darren Mackinnon (Charlottetown, PE), Kent Vincent (Westmoreland, PE), Cory Hall (Jolicure, NB) and Blenkhorn  all picked up wins in the 10 lap qualifying heats. Hall was the recipient of the King Freight Lines Future Winner Award and Exide Batteries Rookie of the Race Award with a seventh place finish. The race was slowed by 14 caution periods and took two hours and 27 minutes to complete.

Prior to feature racing three opening classes took to the track. Dave Matthews (Nine Mile River, NS) won the MJS and Prime Lift East Coast Mini Stock Tour 50 lap feature.
