Halifax, NS – (March 27, 2017) – The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is pleased to announce King Freight Lines will return to sponsor the King Freight Future Winner Award. King Freight Lines has been a marketing partner with the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour for many years and became the inaugural Future Winner Award sponsor last season.
The King Freight Future Winner Award is presented to the highest finishing driver in each Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour main feature that has never won a series race (2001 to present). The highest finishing driver without a win on the Series will take away a $300 cash award. Once a driver scores their first career feature victory, he or she becomes ineligible to win the award in future events.
Eight drivers divided up the $3,600 awarded to Future Winners during the 2016 Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour season. DJ Casey (Prospect, NS) lead the charge of Future Winners collecting the award three times, with Russell Smith Jr. (Lakeside, NS) and Jarrett Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS) both cashing in twice. Nevin Scott (Marshfield, PE), Robbie MacEwen (Charlottetown, PE), Matt Rodgers (Smithtown, NB), Steve Ross (Waverly, NS) and Harry Ross White (Kennetcook, NS) all collected the award once last season.
The first King Freight Future Winner Award of 2017 will be presented at the Lucas Oil 150 on May 20th at Scotia Speedworld. Racing action begins at 4:00pm with Atlantic Tiltload Heat Races. Tickets available at the gates on race day.
