(Dartmouth, NS) – After over a month between races, the cars and stars of the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Tour are chomping at the bit to get back on the track. They will get the opportunity to thrill fans again this Friday night, July 17th at Riverside International Speedway when they hit the track for the Brycon Construction 50. The event, which begins at 7pm, will serve as the kick off to the IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body weekend.

The opening round of the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Tour was a showcase between two of the younger, up and coming talents in this sport. While Nicholas Naugle (Dartmouth, NS) led the most laps in the 50-lap opener at Scotia Speedworld in late May, it was a last lap altercation with a lapped car combined with pressure from behind that produced Cory Hall (Jolicure, NB) as the winner in the first round of the series. Defending series champion Justin MacNeill (Bedford, NS), who was quick to commend the 16-year old Hall on his driving prowess, finished second at Scotia Speedworld with 2014 INEX Canada East Masters champion Paul Goulden (Shelburne, NS) in third.

After leading laps in the season opener, “Miss Rawdon Rocket” Emily Meehan (Rawdon Gold Mines, NS) sits fourth in the series standings with “The Legend” Cy Harvey (Elmsdale, NS) in fifth. Harvey has had a nagging shoulder problem plague him since early June and will be a race time decision on whether he is in the #37 car for the Brycon Construction 50.

Riverside International Speedway fans will have some hometown content to cheer for this weekend, with Craig Chisholm and Kevin MacDonald, both of Antigonish, expected to make their second start on the series on Friday night.

Hall leads the Rookie of the Year battle after one race, followed up by Adam Meehan (Rawdon Gold Mines, NS) and Cole Tanner (Shubenacadie, NS). Chisholm, Dustin Tucker (Fredericton, NB), Dylan Rumbolt (Deer Lake, NL) and MacDonald were amongst the seven rookies that took part in the season opening event.

Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS), Tony Gaudet Jr (Sherwood Park, AB), Jeff Cruickshank (Hantsport, NS), Brad Brown (Williamswood, NS), Joey Lawson (Porter’s Lake, NS), Tylor Hawes (Porter’s Lake, NS) and Arnie Spinney (Coldbrook, NS) will look to better their respective finishing positions from the first race of the year. A total of 19 cars took the green flag at Scotia Speedworld in May.

With the Brycon Construction 50 being a part of the biggest racing weekend of the Summer in Nova Scotia, the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends field will feature at least a pair of part-timers looking to steal the Friday night spotlight. Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour drivers Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) and Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) will be bringing their talents to the series Friday night while both will also race in the IWK 250 presented by Steve Lewis Auto Body on Saturday night. Both have two wins on the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour this season and both are previous Maritime League of Legends Tour titlists.

Pit gates open for competitors on Friday at 2pm with practices at 4pm, 4:45pm and 5:30pm. Grandstand gates for fans open at 4pm with racing beginning at 7pm. Complete information on the event can be found on the race track’s website at www.RiversideSpeedway.ca.

The race is one of two stops at the high banked James River, Nova Scotia track for the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Tour in 2015, with the second taking place on Saturday, August 15th as the undercard for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and is presented by Cummins. Round Three of the series will take place on Saturday, August 1st, when the series makes its return to Oyster Bed Speedway at Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island for the Action Car and Truck Accessories 50.
