Greg Proude Wins IWK 250

Series Release

(Antigonish, NS – July 23, 2022) Greg Proude (Springvale, PE) picked up the biggest win of his career tonight at the iconic IWK 250 and will pocket over $25,000 in purse and contingency funds. Not only can Proude add IWK 250 Champion to his racing resume his name will also be etched on the revered John W. Chisholm Memorial Cup.  This was Proude’s second win of the season but it didn’t come easy as he had a hard charging Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) to contend with for the final laps.  Blenkhorn, a former IWK 250 Champion, had to settle for second. Cole Butcher (Hantsport, NS) was back in Victory Lane with a third place finish. Ashton Tucker (Lyttleton, NB) finished just off the podium in fourth with Chris Reid (Fort McMurray, AB) in fifth.

Proude (Springvale, PE), Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS), Cole Butcher (Hantsport, NS) and Chris Reid (Fort McMurray, AB) won their respective Atlantic Tiltload heat races which set the field for the IWK 250.

Tucker won the Kenny U Pull Hard Charger award picking up the most spots on the field. Jarrett Butcher was the Fleet Brake Atlantic Lucky Dog award winner. Proude takes home the R&D Performance Most Laps Led (213 laps) and was the Half-way leader.

The race was slowed by 15 cautions and took two hours and forty minutes to complete.

The East Coast International Pro Stock Tour returns to Prince Edward Island next Saturday for the BJ’s Truck Centres 150.
