SCOTIA SPEEDWORLD:  An Enfield racer came home with a second-place finish during the recent round of the Cross Roads Cycle Maritime League of Legends Tour race at Scotia Speedworld on June 25.

Gage Gilby, who initially finished third, was bumped up to second after another East Hants racer Colton Noble had a tech issue post race.

Owen Mahar picked up his first tour win of the 2022 season capturing the CKG Elevator 50, presented by Samuel, Son, and Co. He picked up the lead just before the halfway point on a lap 22 restart and never looked back en route to the win.

Gilby, who’s no. 25 has a The Laker News decal on his car, showed impressive speed but Mahar just got away so he couldn’t reel him in before the checkers flew.

Nathan Blackburn of Timberlea finished third, while Coldbrook’s Josh Langille was fourth.

Summerside’s Tanton Wooldridge completed the top five. The Tour saw 21 cars take the green flag.

Mahar, Langille and Noble took home EIT Race Radios Heat Race victories.
