Unlike the overall PASS North Super Late Model series, the PASS Northeast Super Late Model Challenge will allow drivers to compete for a separate title in the United States events only. For Kruczek, 2015 presented the perfect opportunity to race for his first PASS title.
“I feel like we are making a huge step in our program this year and look forward to stepping out of the shadows in 2015,” said Kruczek of his new opportunity.

ProStockTour(Fredericton, NB, July 12, 2014) Shawn Turple (Enfield, NS) won his second race of the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour season Saturday night at Speedway 660 in Geary, New Brunswick. Turple, a two-time series champion, inherited the lead on Lap 72 when then leader Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB) was relegated to the back of the field after jumping his third restart of the caution filled race. Tucker managed to make his way back to finish third behind John Flemming (Halifax, NS), who also came from the back of the field after a flat tire forced him to pit in the first half of the event. Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) and Jonathan Hicken (Brudenell, PE) dodged a last lap melee in turn three to take the fourth and fifth place spots at the finish.

 

To start the day, Blenkhorn became a four- time Atlantic Tiltload Time Trial Winner after a quick 13.635 second lap. It was Flemming that earned the right to start the Main Feature on the pole after crossing the line first in the King Freight Dash For Cash. Two exciting Dartmouth Dodge Heat Races determined the starting positions for the remainder of the field which saw Darren MacKinnon (Charlottetown, PE) best Turple on a last lap pass and Dave O’Blenis (Boundary Creek, NB) win a three wide battle to the checkers over Matt Harris (Fredericton Junction, NB) and Cole Butcher (Porter’s Lake, NS).
