Driver Spotlight: John Flemming
Each Friday on TimsCorner.ca, we will spotlight one driver who runs Tim’s Corner Motorsports stickers on their cars throughout the season. Drivers who run Tim’s Corner Motorsports stickers can fill out the form at the bottom of the Driver Profiles page to get their listing on that page. In addition, we will pull one file each Friday and give them their extra spotlight here in the Driver Spotlight section.
Driver Spotlights each week are brought to you by Imaginit Designs and Signs at 202 Brownlow Drive in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia’s Burnside Industrial Park.

With this weekend looking quite wet, let’s take a look back a few days and profile the big winner from Opening Weekend Presented by MacKinnon’s Trucking. John Flemming of Halifax, Nova Scotia is a multi-time Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour champion and knows how to work over a field. He had to do just that last Sunday after he and Marty Prevost made contact with 25 to go, sending Flemming to the rear of the pack. Following a quick caution which put him back on the lead lap, he drove his #97 Action Car and Truck Accessories Dodge through the field at a blistering pace and into Victory Lane for the second consecutive time on the series, dating back to the 2012 finale.
With that impressive performance, Flemming receives our Driver Spotlight honors of the week!
