(Halifax, NS – September 21, 2022) The East Coast International Pro Stock Tour will close out another season this Saturday at Scotia Speedworld with the Tirecraft 200. After 12 events in four cities, we are down to the final 200 laps of the 2022 Pro Stock Tour season. You will not want to miss any of the high-octane action and the crowning of the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour Champion – who will also receive a cheque for $10,000.00! Championship action gets underway 4:00pm with Atlantic Tiltload heat races. Grandstand gates will open at 1:00pm.

Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS) remains at the top of the championship points standings, where he has been all season, and only needs to take a pace lap to secure the title. If Slaunwhite can secure the championship it will be his second consecutive season as the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour Champion. John Flemming (Halifax, NS) is the only other driver in Series history to win back-to-back championships, which he accomplished twice in 2002/2003 and 2013/2014.

Russell Smith Jr (Lakeside, NS) and Matt Vaughan (Bedford, NS) sit second and third respectively in the point standings. Ryan VanOirschot (Antigonish, NS) has wrapped up the 2022 Rookie of the Year award and currently sits fourth in points. Steve Lively (Shubenacadie, NS) made a terrific return to the Series and enters the Tirecraft 200 in fifth.

The East Coast International Pro Stock Tour $50,000 points fund will be on the minds of many drivers entering Saturday’s finale. Although the championship may be out of reach, there is still lots of cash on the line for other competitors who will be looking to improve or secure their year-end standing.

The Tirecraft 200 will be broadcast on REV TV – Canada’s Motorsports destination, which is available in over 6 million households across Canada. The Tirecraft 200 is scheduled to premiere on REV TV in prime time on Sunday, October 2nd with the two-hour broadcast being re-aired at least six times.

The Cross Roads Maritime League of Legends and the East Coast Mini Stock Tour will take centre stage prior to the Tirecraft 200.

Tim’s Corner Motorsports TV will have a video crew at Scotia Speedworld to provide full event coverage. You can watch the race LIVE or On-Demand by heading to www. and getting your Event Pass.
