Butcher stays hot
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.
