October 2021

October 7, 2021 - Our Covid crippled 2021 trackside season ended last weekend, October 1, 2 and 3 at Scotia Speedworld near Halifax. Congratulations to all of the champions crowned in each of the divisions competing. Craig Slaunwhite #99 became the 2021 East Coast International Pro Stock Tour Champion with his 3rd place finish in the Cummins 150 last Saturday afternoon. Deven Smith #94 won the Fleet Brake Atlantic Sportsman Championship with his 3rd place run on Sunday afternoon. We're already looking forward to 2022.

September 2021

September 15, 2021 - Craig Slaunwhite #99 made it 3 in row last weekend at Riverside Speedway in the ECIPST Cat 150 race Saturday afternoon. Craig and 30 other teams are on the entry list for next weekends big Mike Stevens Memorial 200 lap event at Petty International Raceway near Moncton, NB. This will be the last big weekend of racing in the Maritimes now that Nova Scotia has extended covid restrictions until October 4th.

September 1, 2021 - Last weekend's Cummins 150 at Petty Raceway in New Brunswick was canceled due to Covid border restrictions imposed by the Nova Scotia government on Wednesday morning. The plan is to reschedule the event when more reasonable border rules are in effect.

August 2021

August 24, 2021 - There was another low car count last Saturday for the Wilson Equipment Twin 75's at Riverside Speedway and the grandstands were still in lockdown keeping the crowd to a minimum and services non-existent.. Craig Slaunwhite #99 dominated the event and got his second ECIPST win in a row this season. Pete Miller #75 took the Napa Sportsman series 75 lapper. GET VACCINATED! and we'll see you at the races.

July 2021

July 21, 2021 - The East Coast International Pro Stock Tour ran a season opener at Scotia Speedworld last Saturday night and many think it was a mistake. The ECIPST season opener should have been at Petty Raceway on July 10 (originally scheduled as an ECIPST race) where the Covid rules are reasonable and the car count and racing was excellent. Last Saturday night July 17, 2 other tracks in the Maritimes ran scheduled Pro Stock races. Congratulations to the 3 winners - Cole Butcher #53 at Scotia Speedworld (8 car field), Ashton Tucker #2 at Speedway 660 (17 car field), and Dylan Gosbee #91 at Oyster Bed Speedway (6 car field). It would have been nice to see the 3 winners and the rest of the teams competing together in the same race on that night preferably at a New Brunswick track where the Covid rules make sense and everyone could have enjoyed the event.

June 2021

June 30, 2021 - The NS border opened with the rest of Atlantic Canada this morning at 8:00. Let the regional racing begin. Fans are permitted with reasonable protocols in place in New Brunswick. PEI and Nova Scotia are still severely limiting attendance at race events which may limit racing activity in those provinces until changes are made.

September 17, 2020 - The Jim Hallahan 250 ran last Saturday at Scotia Speedworld for a very limited number of fans. Covid rules in Nova Scotia required that metal fencing separated the sparse crowd into the necessary groups of no more that 250 fans. With that in place it was not possible to setup on the grandstand side or provide radio services to grandstand spectators. Cole Butcher # 53 won the event, with Ashton Tucker #2 a strong second followed by Nicolas Naugle #08 completing the podium.

September 11, 2020 - Last weekend marked another very successful Speedweekend for Speedway 660 despite Covid 19.

June 2020

June 25, 2020 - The regional borders are opening and that means racing can happen here again. The first event we will attend is the Brycon Construction 150 Bubble Buster at Petty Raceway on July 4, 2020. This will be the first Pro Stock / Super Late Model race in Canada since the pandemic shut everything down in March.

June 8, 2020 - What a difference a few months can make. In February, we were contemplating an exciting 2020 race season with action from all our usual touring and track series and a new Hot Rod Classics series. We were preparing to order in new inventory and gear up for the track-side season. Now with the global coronavirus pandemic, we are wondering if it will be possible to have live racing with fans at all this season in the Maritimes. We are still open at the shop and some race teams have been taking advantage of the situation to send in all of their radio equipment for service, repairs or upgrades and we are thankful for that. We hope they get to use their equipment yet this season and hope to be in attendance. Until then everybody, stay healthy and do what you can to crush this Covid-19 pandemic.
