The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Greg Fahey of St. Stephen, N.B., dom­i­nated the Canada Day 150 edi­tion of the Cum­mins 150 on Sun­day af­ter­noon at Speed­way 660.

Fahey, in his #29 McLaugh­lin Roof Trusses Ltd Chevro­let, took the lead from Dy­lan Gos­bee of Corn­wall, P.E.I., on lap 34 and never looked back.

The Speed­way 660 reg­u­lar led by half a lap at the end of the race over Gos­bee and Dy­lan Blenkhorn of Truro, N.S. Cole Butcher of Porter’s Lake, N.S., and Shawn Tur­ple of En­field, N.S., com­pleted the top five.

At­lantic Tilt­load Heat Races de­ter­mined the start­ing grid for the Cum­mins 150 which saw Gos­bee, Greg Proude of Spring­vale, P.E.I., and Butcher vic­to­ri­ous. Even­tual win­ner, Fahey, led a to­tal of 117 laps to take home the Linde Most Laps Led Award.

The King Freight Lines Fu­ture Win­ner went to Devin Snell of Saint John, N.B. af­ter his ca­reer high sixth-place fin­ish. The Ex­ide Bat­ter­ies Rookie of the Race Award was taken home by Ni­cholas Nau­gle of Dart­mouth, N.S., af­ter fin­ish­ing in 10th place.

Blenkhorn ex­tended his point lead on Tur­ple by points at the Cum­mins 150, while Gos­bee closed the gap on Tur­ple by 12 points af­ter a strong fin­ish and gain­ing valu­able bonus points by lead­ing the first 33 laps of the race. Butcher and Proude re­main in po­si­tions four and five in the over­all stand­ings.

The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is off next week­end as the drivers and teams pre­pare for the IWK 250 on Satur­day, July 15 at River­side In­ter­na­tional Speed­way.
