Auto World Maritime Allstar Sportsman Series and East Coast International Pro Stock Tour headline Saturday, MetalCore and D.R. Scrap Metals Day of Destruction on Sunday
(RIVER GLADE, NB – August 25th, 2022) – Petty International Raceway will be the place to be for motorsport excitement this weekend as stock car and demolition will take to the track over two days at the River Glade, New Brunswick oval. The Saturday, August 27th card is anchored by the two top Late Model Tours in the region – the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour with the Cummins 150 and the Auto World Maritime Allstar Sportsman Series with the Morse Industrial 100 presented by C.B. Warren’s Auto Care. The Leisure Days RV Bandoleros and Four Cylinders play support on Saturday with the green flag for qualifying at 4pm. The Sunday MetalCore and D.R. Scrap Metals Day of Destruction, which is headlined by a 75-lap, $1,000 to win Enduro race and a $1,000 to win Demolition Derby, gets underway at 2pm.
The Auto World Maritime Allstar Sportsman Series will make a stop at Petty International Raceway on Saturday. The Morse Industrial 100 presented by C.B. Warren’s Auto Care is a makeup race for an event lost due to rain in July in Shediac, New Brunswick. With the race serving as the penultimate race of the season, major championship implications will play a role in Saturday’s 100-lap show. The race is also the first and only scheduled in 2022 for the new Tour outside the Province of Nova Scotia.
Brady Creamer (Miramichi, NB) enters as the championship point leader by just seven points over Colby Smith (East Point, NS). Deven Smith (Lakeside, NS) is third, nine points out of second place. Chris Reid (Sydney, NS), the winner of the last two Auto World Maritime Allstar Sportsman Series races, is fourth and could play a factor in the championship if his momentum ride continues through Saturday’s Morse Industrial 100 presented by C.B. Warren’s Auto Care. Eighteen drivers have been confirmed to compete on Saturday.

The Leisure Days RV Bandoleros will warm up the track for the Late Model divisions on Saturday night. In the Beginner division, it has been the story of Mandi Lee and Hudson Ruff.

Lee and Ruff are tied for the championship lead in the Beginner Bandolero class. In the more experienced Outlaw division, Chase MacKay has a slim five point advantage on Ayden Christensen as the Leisure Days RV Bandoleros enter the second half of 2022.
The previously scheduled Passione Flooring East Coast Mini Stock Tour event has been canceled. In its place is a 25-lap Mister Transmission Mini Stock event. This race is a non-point event and will be governed by Petty International Raceway rules.
