(HALIFAX, N.S. March 6) - A track owners meeting has confirmed participation details for the facilities supporting the Maritime Pro Stock Tour (MPST). There will be 12 events at five tracks in the Maritime Provinces. In addition to those previously announced (Centre For Speed, Shediac, New Brunswick; Raceway Park, Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island; Riverside Speedway, Antigonish, Nova Scotia; and Scotia Speedworld, Halifax, Nova Scotia), New Brunswick International Speedway, located near Fredericton, New Brunswick, has signed up for three dates.

"We look forward to seeing this series get on the track in May," said Bas Gordon, General Manager of Scotia Speedworld, who will operate the MPST. All 12 events will see guaranteed purses posted as well as a guaranteed $50,000 points fund, with $10,000 to the season-long champion. Points will be accumulated for each event to determine the champion. More than 25 teams are expected to compete for the top honours.

All of the track owners agree the new series needs to be highly entertaining, realizing they are in the entertainment business. Good news for the fans. Not only will they see exciting action on the track, but a full slate of pre-race promotional activities, both on and off the track. The series will be very interactive between the competitors and the teams, a trait which has made stock car racing thrive all over North America.

Look for a new web site to be launched in the near future. The web site will contain fan and team information. Additionally, race teams will receive regular mailouts via either email or regular mail. Fans wishing to join the email list for the MPST should send their request to scotiaspeedworld@aol.com. <pre> 2001 MARITIME PRO STOCK TOUR SCHEDULE (REVISED 3/5/01) May 12 Scotia Speedworld, Halifax, Nova Scotia May 26 New Brunswick International Speedway, Fredericton, New Brunswick June 2 Centre For Speed, Shediac, New Brunswick June 16 New Brunswick International Speedway, Fredericton, New Brunswick June 23 Scotia Speedworld, Halifax, Nova Scotia July 1 Riverside Speedway, Antigonish, Nova Scotia July 7 Raceway Park, Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island July 21 Centre For Speed, Shediac, New Brunswick Aug. 5 Raceway Park, Oyster Bed Bridge, Prince Edward Island Aug. 18 New Brunswick International Speedway, Fredericton, New Brunswick Aug. 25 Scotia Speedworld, Halifax, Nova Scotia Sept. 2 Riverside Speedway, Antigonish, Nova Scotia
