It’s Turple Time – Turple Takes Harry Poole Memorial 100 Presented by Lucas Oil at Scotia Speedworld

Series Release

(Halifax, NS, May 24, 2014) Enfield, NS’s Shawn Turple began 2014 the way he ended 2013 – in Victory Lane at Scotia Speedworld. Turple, driving the #0 Dexter Construction/Municipal Group Chevrolet SS, made the final pass for the lead on defending series champion John Flemming (Halifax, NS) on Lap 64 after the two battled in close quarters for many laps in the Harry Poole Memorial 100 presented by Lucas Oil. Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) picked up where he left off in 2013 by finishing third, ahead of a handful of cars battling for fourth and fifth behind him as Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS) and Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) got by Greg Proude (Springvale, PE) on the last lap to round out the top five.

Last season’s Exide Batteries Rookie Of The Year Dylan Blenkhorn of Truro, NS piloted his car around the 1/3 mile track in just 14.222 seconds to set the Atlantic Tiltload Fast Time, his first Time Trial award with the series. Following a shakeup of the top eight drivers and the King Freight Lines Dash For Cash, Antigonish, NS’s Donald Chisholm earned the right to start the first race of the season on the pole. Dartmouth Dodge Heat Races were won by Tucker and Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell, PE). Flemming paced the field for 61 laps to take home the Linde Most Laps Led Award. St. Stephen, NB’s Greg Fahey took home the Exide Batteries Hard Charger Award by picking up 10 positions from his 22nd place starting spot in the Harry Poole Memorial 100 presented by Lucas Oil. Sarah McKay made history by becoming the first female to ever start a Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour event and picked up the Exide Batteries Rookie.
