SCOTIA SPEEDWORLD: A Fall River Pro Stock racer had an impressive showing during the Make A Wish 150, presented by Nova Truck Centres at Scotia Speedworld on June 25.

In his first start of the year, Marty Prevost wheeled the no. 11 MEGA-sponsored hot rod to a fourth-place finish, one spot off the podium during the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour’s second visit to the track near Halifax Stanfield Airport.

Shubenacadie’s Steve Lively earned one of the Atlantic Tiltload heat race checkers and would have started provisional pol. However the no. 30 East Coast Financing-sponsored machine practiced during the week, so he started further back in the field.
