Proude Gets the Win
HALIFAX, NS (May 23, 2009) - The Lucas Oil 100 has just concluded with PEI's Greg Proude taking the checkered flag - his third series win.
Proude was chased to the end by Daryl Mahar, who finished second. John Flemming. Wayne Smith and Lonnie Sommerville rounced out the top five.
Proude set fast time in time trials, drew number one for the Dash start and won the Dash - to start first in the feature. He was
overtaken on the first circuit by Craig Slaunwhite, who led through lap 19 before Proude made the pass for the point, and as it turned out, the win on lap 20.
The race saw five caution periods and took right around 55 minutes to complete. Two-time series champion Shawn Tucker was
involved in a crash on lap 37 that saw him limping as he left the car. Donald Chisholm, who had been involved in an earlier wreck,
replaced Tucker to finish the race in the 52 car. Slaunwhite was also involved in the same wreck as Tucker, which happened as the two
were battled for the second spot going by lapped traffic on the backstretch.
Heat race winners were Dave O'Blenis, Robbie MacLean and Kent Vincent. Jonathan Hicken won the B Feature.
Ian Mollins and Scott MacLean won the Legends heat races; Justin MacNeill won the feature, followed by Chris Johnson and Cy Harvey. The race was
called complete on lap 49 of 50 after Jeff Atkinson barrel-rolled down the front straight; he walked away from the wreck.
Thirty cars entered the race; 26 started the feature.
NOTES: It was good to see veteran flagman Art Steeves on the starter's stand. Steeves, known all over the eastern seaboard for
his exciting style, has been in racing for more than 40 years, but plaguing back problems have kept him off the starter stand for the last
couple years. Steeves is back on a four-week contract training new series starter Bobby Nielsen...Another familiar face in regional
racing circles, Dan MacKay, was back on track Saturday behind the wheel of the CARQUEST Tour pacecar.
