(BEDFORD, NS – September 1st, 2022) – The Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour is heading back to New Brunswick and Speedway 660 for two races as a part of SpeedWeekend 2022. Saturday’s CYV Chevrolet 40 and Sunday’s Sherwood Sawmills 40 serve as Rounds Nine and 10 on the 2022 Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour and are sure to play a pivotal role in determining a Series champion. Saturday’s action at the Geary, New Brunswick oval begins at 5:30pm with Sunday seeing cars on track for a 2pm start.
After the night cap MacDonald Automotive 50 at Scotia Speedworld over two weeks ago, Gage Gilby (Enfield, NS) has vaulted to the top of the championship standings with four races remaining. Gilby was the winner in the visit to Nova Scotia’s Capital Region and will look to carry that momentum to Speedway 660, a track where he was second during the Samuel, Son and Co. 50. The Cross Roads Rookie leads the overall championship by a slim three point advantage over Owen Mahar (Hubley, NS). Mahar scored a breakthrough win on the Series one year ago during SpeedWeekend 2021 and will look to return to victory lane twice this weekend during the CYV Chevrolet 40 and the Sherwood Sawmills 40.
Only 13 points behind in the championship hunt is Danny Chisholm (Canning, NS). Chisholm started off the season with a victory at Speedway 660 and followed it up with four more for five in eight races so far on the Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour. Chisholm is still trying to dig out of a hole from the Redline Sport and Cycle 50 at Riverside where battery issues sidelined the No. 87. Chisholm is coming off a runner-up finish at the MacDonald Automotive 50.
Tanton Wooldridge (Summerside, PE) and Daryl Mahar (Hubley, NS) complete the top five in championship standings after eight races. This battle of youth and experience is not only evident on paper but has showed itself several times on track as the Cross Roads rookie in the No. 0 and the Masters driver in the No. 66M have found themselves dueling it out more often than not. They will look to pick up where they left off in May at Speedway 660 over 80-laps of competition this weekend.
Before drop races, Wooldridge leads the Cross Roads Rookie standings over Kelsey Hann (New Glasgow, NS) and local fan favorite Teagan Dempsey (Fredericton, NB). With drivers able to drop their three worst finishes at the end of the season, Gilby should be well within the hunt after missing two races in July. In total, 12 rookie drivers have competed in at least one Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends Tour event in 2022.
Following the Cross Roads double header featuring the CYV Chevrolet 40 and the Sherwood Sawmills 40, the teams will have only two races remaining on what has been a busy Summer. The Series will visit Petty International Raceway (September 17th) and Scotia Speedworld (September 24th) on back-to-back Saturday afternoons to close off the 2022 season and crown a champion.
