Former Champions, Fresh Faces Highlight 2019 TCM Stock Car Shootout Round One Entry List

NOTE – Cory Hall is a scratch for this evening’s event. In his place will be 2018 Round Four winner Shane Lively.

The Tim’s Corner Motorsports Stock Car Shootout at Kartbahn Racing returns for a third season with a trio of events scheduled, beginning with Tuesday night, January 15th.

The first event of the 2019 off-season will feature a number of familiar faces collide with some new blood to the fun Series. In all, eleven A Main races have been run during the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, with eight of those wins expected to be represented on the indoor track on Tuesday evening. Craig MacDonald and Andrew Lively are the only two drivers with multiple victories in the past two years. MacDonald has four wins, two from each season, while Lively has a pair of wins, scoring one in each of the last two years. Kyle Gammon and Cory Hall each have one A Main win to their credit, with Gammon also taking the TCM Trophy Dash last March. The quartet, along with Brandon Crawford, were winners in the third TCM 250 at Kartbahn Racing back in November.

Brad Brown and Kyle Shipley lead the list of TCM Stock Car Shootout regulars looking for their first A Main win within the Series. Brown made the TCM Trophy Dash in 2018, finishing seventh in the Season Finale. Scotia Speedworld Sportsman feature winner Megan Parrott has a number of starts at the TCM Stock Car Shootout including a podium finish in 2017. Brad Eddy, who has a previous A Main appearance on the Series in 2017, returns for the opening race in 2019, while Tony Arsenault of The Sign Crew will look to improve on his start from 2018. Craig Doucette, one of the first to sign up for the event once the dates were released last week, is a former C Main winner from last year. Dale Holman, who manned the TCM Content Camera at Scotia Speedworld this season, will also make a return with the hopes of cracking the A Main on Tuesday.

While he couldn’t race last season due to injury, Valley Raceway Modified champion Rick Balsor will make his debut in the Series as a driver on Tuesday. He will be joined by a few of his crew, drivers to be announced, in Round One.

The TCM Stock Car Shootout will see a number of new drivers take to the grid on Tuesday night. A number of whom, such as Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour star Nicholas Naugle, Maritime League of Legends Tour winner at Speedway 660 Nathan Blackburn, INEX standout Adam Meehan, Scotia Speedworld Lightning front runner David Jollimore and multi-time Scotia Speedworld Thunder car champion Dave Matthews, have competed in the TCM 250 Team Endurance races in the past. Isabelle Getson, the 2018 TCM Most Popular Driver Award winner, will make the long haul from Prince Edward Island on her birthday to run in her first TCM Stock Car Shootout. Nova Scotia’s eNASCAR Peak Antifreeze iRacing Series star Keegan Leahy will also take his first shot at the Series.

Derek Gates, Arron Webb and Chris Nieforth round out the expected entry list for Tuesday evening. The entry list is expected to change without notice and is expected to include 24 drivers, a pair of those are to be announced once confirmed.
