OYSTER BED BRIDGE, PEI: A Lantz racer had a top six run during the BJs Truck Centre 150 in the second and final Pro Stock Tour race of the 2022 season at Oyster Bed Speedway in Oyster Bed Bridge, P.E.I.

While it was the no. 83 of Cory Hall leading a dominating top four placing for King Competition and grabbing the checkered flag, it was the East Coast International-sponsored no. 0 of Matt Vaughan coming home with a sixth-place finish in the Maritime Pro Stock Tour’s eight race of the season on July 30.

Vaughan was the last car on the lead lap in the 50-minute race as Hall and Craig Slaunwhite lapped all but the top six in the 18-car field, before a large crowd on hand. The race was slowed by two cautions—one for a spin and the second for a brief rain shower that hit the track as a weather system split around the track near Brackley Beach.

The Fletchers Lake native showed a good compete level throughout the race staying in the top 10 all race long after starting in fifth place after a strong Atlantic Tiltload heat race.

PEI Premier Denny King spoke with the Voice of the Pro Stock Tour Tim Terry before the race got going and was among those to say those magical words “drivers start your engines.”
