Antigonish, NS – (June 11, 2022) It was a tumultuous finish in the RJ Poirier Heavy Equipment 150 tonight at Riverside International Speedway.
With four laps to go Craig Slaunwhite (Terence Bay, NS), Greg Proude (Springvale, PE) and Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) were in the top three finishing spots when a caution came out on lap 147 and involved numerous leaders. On the restart Slaunwhite and Blenkhorn sat on the front row, the two tangled in turn-three which drew another caution as well as taking both drivers out of the race. Officials decided to call the race on lap 149. With few cars left on the track Kyle Reid (Fort McMurray, AB) was declared the winner, followed by Matt Vaughan (Bedford, NS) and Nicholas Naugle (Dartmouth, NS). All results for this event are currently unofficial and under review by Tour Officials.
