Butcher picks up first career Riverside victory

SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. —

Three P.E.I. drivers finished in the top five of the Parts For Trucks Pro Stock Tour’s Ceilidh Honda Triple 50’s event in Antigonish, N.S., on Saturday.

Dylan Gosbee of Cornwall was third, Greg Proude of Springvale finished fourth and Brudenell’s Jonathan Hicken had a fifth-place showing.
Cole Butcher of Hantsport, N.S., picked up his first career Riverside International Speedway victory. The unique triple-50 format provided a thrilling race for drivers and fans alike.
Proude paced the field for the first 50 laps prior to the Riverside roulette wheel being spun, which resulted in an inversion of the top five cars, placing Nicholas Naugle of Dartmouth, N.S., on the pole for the second 50 laps.
Naugle proceeded to lead laps 51 to 100 when the Riverside roulette wheel inverted the top-10 cars, placing Butcher in front of the field for the final 50 laps and he never looked back. Dylan Blenkhorn of Truro, N.S., finished second.
Atlantic Tiltload Heat Races set the field for the Ceilidh Honda Triple 50’s. Proude, Gosbee and Shawn Pierce of Bridgewater, N.S., all picked up victories in their respective heat races. Ashton Tucker of Miramichi, N.B., won his second Rookie of the Race Award this season with a seventh-place finish. Blenkhorn took home the Kenny U-Pull Hard Charger award after picking up 12 positions during the feature. Proude, Naugle and Butcher all tied for most laps led.
The NAPA Sportsman Series entertained fans for an exciting 75 lap feature prior to the Triple 50’s. Darren Price (Main-A-Dieu, NS) took home the first victory of the season on the Series. Price had to battle Matt Vaughan (Fletcher Lake, NS) and Brad Eddy (Lower Sackville, NS) who finished second and third respectively.
The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour is off next weekend, but returns to Scotia Speedworld for the Nova Truck Centres Make A Wish 150 on Saturday, June 22, at 4 p.m.
