Slaunwhite Captures Emotional Atlantic CAT 250

(Halifax, NS, August 10, 2013) – It was an emotional night for Terence Bay’s Craig Slaunwhite as he drove his #99 Halifax Glass and Mirror Chevrolet Impala to victory in the 14th Annual Atlantic CAT 250 for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour. This is Slaunwhite’s first Atlantic CAT 250 victory and had to battle another hometown favorite in Enfield’s Shawn Turple for the victory. Turple brought his Chevrolet home in second, followed by Fredericton, NB’s Shawn Tucker, Turner, Maine’s Ben Rowe and Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island’s Darren MacKinnon.

Rowe began his afternoon with setting the pace in the Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials with a 14.310 second lap. After a redraw for the King Freight Lines Dash for Cash, it was Slaunwhite who went to victory lane in the qualifier for the top eight Time Trial competitors and earned the right to start the 250 lap feature from the pole position. Donald Chisholm (Antigonish) and Exide Batteries Rookie of the Race Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro) took home Dartmouth Dodge Heat Races. Slaunwhite led 165 laps to take the Linde Most Laps Led Award. Springvale, PE’s Greg Proude gained 13 positions and finished in 6th position to earn the Absolute Traffic Hard Charger Award. Three leaders swapped the lead six times in a 250-lap race which featured eight caution periods.

The next event for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is the Parts for Trucks 150 at Petty International Raceway, a part of the 49th Annual River Glade International Weekend. The event marks Round 10 of 12 on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour, which was won in 2012 by series champion Shawn Turple. Ticket and event information can be found at
