“Petty International Raceway is pleased to welcome Eastern Powder Coating to our racing family with the Legend division,” said Wayne Smith of Petty International Raceway. “This year will see the Eastern Powder Coating Legends with stacked fields including some of the top running cars and best drivers in the Maritimes. We have a bunch of young, hungry drivers who will use this class as a rung in the ladder through the divisions of racing in the Maritimes. We also have veteran drivers who call the Eastern Powder Coating Legends home and want to outrace the young guns every time the green flag drops. This is a great fit for both Petty International Raceway and Eastern Powder Coating and we look forward to a great season!”
