Slaunwhite Takes Summer Sizzler at Riverside Speedway
Antigonish, NS – August 21, 2021) Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS) picked up his second consecutive victory in the Wilson Equipment Twin 75 event at Riverside International Speedway this evening. Cole Butcher (Hantsport, NS) returned to the podium in victory lane with a solid second place finish. Nicholas Naugle (Dartmouth, NS) who won the first race of the season at Riverside came home third. Jarrett Butcher continued his season of consistency with a fourth-place finish, while Kyle Reid (Fort McMurray, AB) rounded out the top five. The race marked round six of nine for the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour.
Donald Chisholm (Antigonish, NS) started on the pole and paced the field for most of the first 75 laps of the race. At lap 76 the Riverside roulette wheel was brought onto the front stretch and after a quick spin determined the top 10 cars would be inverted for the final 75 circuits placing Chisholm in 10th position. Following the restart Chisholm was stuck in traffic and unable to make it back to the front of the field and finished the race in sixth.
Cole Butcher and Chisholm won their Atlantic Tiltload heat races which set the field for the main event. Gary Elliott (Truro, NS) took home the Kenny U Pull Hard Charger award. The race ran caution free and took 51 minutes to complete.
The Napa Sportsman Series opened the afternoon with the Henry’s AUTOPRO 75. Pete Miller (Kennetcook, NS) was first under the checkers in the AJK memorial car. Brady Creamer (Miramichi, NB) finished second, followed by Jeffery Breen (Antigonish, NS) in third.
The next event for the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour is the Cummins 150 next Saturday, August 28th at Petty International Raceway located just outside of Moncton in River Glade, NB. Tickets will be available at the gates on race day.
