Riverside 300 Entry List Features Chisholm, Flemming and Collins
The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series returns to Riverside International Speedway on Saturday, August 15th and amongst the 16 early entries are three Atlantic Canadians.
Donald Chisholm, winner of the Riverside 300 last season, five-time Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour champion John Flemming and last Saturday’s winner at Eastbound Park in Newfoundland Josh Collins have all submitted entries for the race. While Flemming and Chisholm will field their own entries, Collins is entered with Canada’s Best Racing Team with the #87, which was driven in the first half of the season by Erica Thiering. Collins will be a teammate to Joey McColm at Riverside.
Only 18 points separate Scott Steckly, Andrew Ranger, Jason Hathway and reigning champion L.P. Dumoulin heading into the ninth round of the series at Riverside International Speedway.
We’ll have more on the race this week as it nears.
