Charlottetown, PE. Oyster Bed Speedway, in Oyster Bed Bridge, PE will host the largest Street Stock total purse payout ever in Atlantic Canada this summer. Included in the purse payout is a lofty $1,500 to the race winner. The event itself with the total purse payout and numerous sponsored gifts will exceed $10,000. The 100 lap showdown will go Saturday, June 24th at 6 pm. The event is open to all Street Stocks and Scotia’s truck class and is expected to attract cars from all across the Maritimes.
The event is being put on by Tom Nicholls of BPMS (Big Poppas Multi-Services) in conjunction with OBS. When reached for comment; he had this to say “The details on this event will be released as soon as I have the Major Sponsor locked down. All I can say at this point is if you have a Street stock or a Scotia truck, or one you are looking to buy, or one you can dig out of the bone yard or you are thinking of putting one together, then get it ready as this will be the can’t miss race of 2017 and into the future for this class.”
TCM Note: This race is in addition to the David Lambe Memorial. The prestigious event that presents the Piston Cup to the winner traditionally boasts a $1,000 to win prize and the hope of Nicholls is to help increase car count in that race by hosting this early season Maritime Street Stock Showdown.
More information on this is expected to be released in the near future.
