Butcher stays hot

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS - Re­sults, B2

Cole Butcher took the lead on Lap 42 from Dy­lan Blenkhorn and drove to his sec­ond ca­reer Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour vic­tory in three races Satur­day in Geary, N.B.

The Cum­mins 100 saw only one lead change, but had three ma­jor play­ers up front - Butcher and even­tual sec­ond- and third­place fin­ish­ers Blenkhorn and Char­lot­te­town’s Dar­ren MacKin­non, re­spec­tively.

Fourth place be­longed to Don­ald Chisholm, of Antigo­nish, N.S., with Hal­i­fax John Flem­ming round­ing out the top-five.

Qual­i­fy­ing ef­forts saw Spring­vale’s Greg Proude lay down a time of 13.717 sec­onds in At­lantic Tilt­load Time Tri­als. Af­ter the King Freight dash for cash, it was Blenkhorn who won the right to start the main fea­ture at the head of the field.

The re­main­der of the field was de­ter­mined through Dart­mouth Dodge heat races, which saw Cornwall’s Dy­lan Gos­bee and Chisholm take check­ered flags.

The tour’s nest stop is the IWK Satur­day, July 18, at River­side In­ter­na­tional Speed­way.
