Series Release/Photo by Tanya Everett

(Moncton, NB – July 31, 2021) Cole Butcher (Hantsport, NS) picked up his second win of the season at the Irving Oil 150 Saturday night at Petty International Raceway. Ashton Tucker (Miramichi, NB) was hot on the heels of Butcher for the latter part of the race but came up just short at the checkers for a second-place finish. Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS) finished third and has been on the podium at every race this season. Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) and Cory Hall (Jolicure, NB) came home fourth and fifth respectively after battling hard for the final laps. The race marked round three of nine for the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour.

Kent Vincent (Crapaud, PE) and Cole Butcher won their Atlantic Tiltload heat races which set the field for the Irving Oil 150. Ashton Tucker took home the Kenny U Pull Hard Charger award, while Hall led the most laps (83). The race was slowed by only two cautions and saw four lead changes.

The Maritime League of Legends ran a 50 -lap feature prior to the main event. Austin MacDonald (Pictou, NS) was first under the checkers, followed by Craig MacDonald (Waverly, NS) and Brad Eddy (Lower Sackville, NS) who rounded out the podium.

Next up for the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour is a rare double header weekend at Scotia Speedworld on August 14th and 15th.  Saturday fans will be treated to the Cummins 150 followed on Sunday by the Nova Truck Centres 150. Ticket information for the event will be announced early next week.
