(BEDFORD, NS – June 2nd, 2022) – The Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour heads down the Trans Canada Highway to Petty International Raceway this Saturday afternoon, June 4th. The C.A.R.S. Automotive 50 is Round Two of 12 on the 2022 season and the second race in three consecutive weekends to kick start the new racing season. Racing action begins at the River Glade, New Brunswick oval at 4pm on Saturday.
Danny Chisholm (Canning, NS) enters with the championship point lead after his win in the Samuel, Son & Co. 50 at Speedway 660 last Sunday. Chisholm was in firm control for most of the event but had to keep rising star and fellow EIT Race Radios Heat Winner Gage Gilby (Enfield, NS) at bay in the second half to nail down the win. Speedway 660 was the third Maritime track Chisholm was able to win at in 2022 with local division victories in May at Scotia Speedworld and Petty Raceway – two tracks the Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour will visit in June.
Gilby led the rookie class at Speedway 660 and will look to do the same on Saturday during the C.A.R.S. Automotive 50. Over half of the 12 car field last Sunday were rookies with two of them, Gilby and Summerside, Prince Edward Island’s Tanton Wooldridge, finishing in the top five. With rookie drivers hailing from all three Maritime Provinces from all different racing backgrounds, this battle is sure to be as hotly contested as the overall championship on the Series.
Owen Mahar (Hubley, NS) will be one to watch on Saturday at Petty Raceway. While Chisholm has been writing a lot of the headlines, Mahar has a local win at Petty Raceway in May in his Legend car and has put his No. 66 Steele Volkswagen Legend on the podium in every race in the Maritimes he has competed in so far in 2022. Owen’s father, and former East Coast International Pro Stock Tour driver, Daryl Mahar (Hubley, NS) also got some laps at Speedway 660 last week and finished as the top Masters driver in the field.
Grandstand admission prices for Saturday’s event are $30 for adults and $10 for youth aged eight to 18 with children aged seven and under admitted for free. Pit admission is $35 and is restricted to those 16 years of age and older. New in 2022, all those entering the pit gates must complete their insurance waiver online prior to heading to the track.
