(TX} THE RACE: The Whelen 150 is the IPSC debut in the province of Quebec. Probable entries will include the top pro stock drivers from New England and Eastern Canada. The Whelen 150 is the richest pro stock race ever to be contested at Autodrome Montmagny, thus drawing the strongest field of competitors ever assembled at the facility. The Whelen 150 is the second race in 2000 of the six scheduled combination races for the IPSC and NEPSA. The 1999 NEPSA event at the track saw Mike Rowe the winner, Kenny Wright second and Gary Smith third. Look for Mike Rowe to pass on tips to his son, Ben Rowe - a regular on the IPSC circuit.
