The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Four Prince Ed­ward Is­land driv­ers fin­ished in the top 10 Satur­day at the IWK 250.

Dy­lan Gos­bee of Corn­wall was fifth; Kent Vin­cent of Cra­paud was sixth; Jonathan Hicken of Bru­denell was eighth, and Greg Proude of Spring­vale was 10th.

Dy­lan Blenkhorn of Truro, N.S., made a life-long dream a re­al­ity by win­ning the John W. Chisholm Memo­rial Cup at River­side In­ter­na­tional Speed­way near Antigo­nish, N.S.

Cole Butcher of Porter’s Lake, N.S., was sec­ond, while Craig Slaun­white of Ter­ence Bay, N.S., and Shawn Tur­ple of En­field, N.S., rounded out the top four, re­spec­tively.

Other P.E.I. driv­ers in the race were Rob­bie MacEwen of Char­lot­te­town (15th), Dar­ren MacKin­non of Char­lot­te­town (20th) and Terry Dougay of Al­bany (27th).

Twenty cars qual­i­fied for the event via heat races. Two more were added through the 25-lap last-chance race while the re­main­ing eight po­si­tions were de­ter­mined by pro­vi­sional, as set in the event pro­ce­dures.

NASCAR leg­end Mark Martin had a rough start to the day af­ter hit­ting the wall hard dur­ing af­ter­noon prac­tice, and do­ing sig­nif­i­cant dam­age to the car. The crew bat­tled and was able to get the car into the start­ing grid, but their is­sues con­tin­ued into the evening. Martin pit­ted on Lap 57, but was un­able to re­turn to the race due to ex­ten­sive me­chan­i­cal is­sues.

The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is in Satur­day for the Irv­ing Oil Blend­ing and Pack­ag­ing 150 at Petty In­ter­na­tional Race­way, lo­cated just out­side of Monc­ton.
