The Maritime League of Legends Tour will crown its 2017 champion on Saturday afternoon at Scotia Speedworld in the R&D Performancenter 50 presented by Scotia Tire. The 50-lap feature is the ninth and final event of the season and third stop to Scotia Speedworld on the year and part of the season finale weekend at Scotia Speedworld. Racing starts Saturday at 4 pm.

Waylon Farrell (Conception Bay South, NL) enters as the championship point leader by 19 markers heading into the season finale. Farrell can clinch the championship with an eighth place finish, regardless of what any other driver does on the race track. Justin MacNeill (Bedford, NS) has had an impressive season and sits second in the standings with a 28 point cushion on third place. Adam Meehan (Rawdon Gold Mines, NS) and  Darren Sherwood (Cambridge Narrows, NB) are separated by just two points in fourth and Emily Meehan is fifth, 17 points out of fourth.

Kyle Shipley (Spryfield, NS) has a healthy 41 point lead on Kody Quinn (Sydney, NS) in the Rookie of the Year battle. With this race being the final for the INEX Legend division in the Maritimes for the 2017 calendar year, most will be gunning for the win in search of bragging rights as much as championship points. A number of Halifax based drivers will be out in full force in hopes of taking the final Legend checkered flag until May 2018.

Admission for Saturday’s event at Scotia Speedworld is $30.00 for adults; $8.00 for youth; pit admission is $35.00. Tickets for the R&D Performancenter 50 presented by Scotia Tire can be purchased at the gates of Scotia Speedworld on race day.
