Lockhart Truck Center 150 Up Next for Parts for Trucks Tour (Updated W/Race Day Format)
(Halifax, NS, June 16, 2014) The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour heads to the tight, 3/10-mile Scotia Speedworld oval, located just outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia for the Lockhart Truck Center 150 this Saturday, June 21st. The Lockhart Truck Center 150 marks the second of four stops at Scotia Speedworld on the 2014 schedule and round three of 12 for the popular stock car racing series. Grandstand gates for the Lockhart Truck Center 150 open at 3:00 PM; Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials will get underway at 5:10 PM with racing slated for 6:00 PM.
The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour was slated to run the Ron MacGillivray Chevrolet Buick GMC 150 at Riverside International Speedway last weekend but got washed out by two days of wet weather. The championship points picture remains unchanged following the Irving Oil Blending & Packaging 100 which ran on May 31st. Current series champion John Flemming (Halifax, NS) sits atop the standings, followed by our most recent race winner Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell, PE). Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS), Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) and Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) round out the top five respectively.
Also on the Saturday racing card with the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour are three of Scotia Speedworld’s Weekly Racing Series divisions. Joining the Tour for the first time ever are the four-cylinder Thunder & Lightning cars who will each run 25 lap features along with the Coors Light Trucks. All three divisions are sure to light up the track prior to the Lockhart Truck Center 150.
Admission for Saturday’s Lockhart Truck Center 150 is $25.00 for adults; $5.00 for youth; pit admission is $30.00. Children 7 and under are admitted for free. Adult weekend passes are also available and include admission to Friday Night’s Weekly Racing Series at 7:00 PM. Adult weekend passes are $30.00 or $35.00 for pit access. Tickets and weekend passes will be available at the gates on race day (Cash Only).
