@MaritimeLegends • @ButcherRacing • @TweetTimsCorner • HALIFAX, NS – The Maritime League of Legends Series is pleased to announce that Atlantic Tiltload Limited will be the new primary sponsor for the popular stock car touring series. Atlantic Tiltload has been a longtime supporter of the series, through multiple event and car partnerships. The series will now be known as the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Series.
Atlantic Tiltload has been the presenting partner for the Atlantic Tiltload Challenge Series at Petty International Raceway for the past two seasons. The series will visit the River Glade, New Brunswick track once this coming season, on Saturday, August 22.
The series has also recently added a seventh event, as the series will be traveling to Oyster Bed Speedway for the first time since 2010. Prince Edward Island fans will be treated to a full night of racing on Saturday, August 1, which will not only feature the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Series 50, but also the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Lucas Oil 100 and the Oyster Bed Speedway Street Stocks for 50-laps. Post-time for the event at Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island is set for 6pm.
The Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Series will carry a championship point fund for drivers who compete in all seven series races in 2015. Drivers are permitted one “drop race” during the season, meaning their best six finishes will be the results that count towards the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Series championship point standings and subsequent point fund.
The highly anticipated green flag for the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Series is set for Saturday, May 23 at 4pm for a 50-lap event at Scotia Speedworld. For more information on the Atlantic Tiltload Maritime League of Legends Series can be found at www.maritimelegends.ca.
