CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – Big Poppa’s Multi Services (BPMS) is pleased to announce that the second running of the Discover KIA Maritime Street Stock Showdown will take place at Oyster Bed Speedway on Saturday, June 23.  The inaugural event held in 2017 was won by PEI Driver of the #27 car Nick Chiasson. Twenty-nine cars from across the Maritimes competed in the 100 lap showdown. For his win, Chiasson took home a cheque for $1500.00.

“I am thrilled to be able to host this event at Oyster Bed Speedway in co-operation with track ownership and to have Kent and his staff from Discover KIA return as the title sponsor,” said BPMS owner and race promoter, Tom Nicholls. “We are hoping for even more cars to come to the race this year. The street stock class is very popular and we are seeing more big lap events each year and the importance and trust in working together with all tracks is what makes it work for this event on PEI.”

Discover KIA General Manager/Dealer Partner Kent MacLeod shared his thoughts on the event.

“We were so encouraged by the wonderful reception from the racing community to the inaugural Maritime Street Stock Showdown that we just had to make sure we returned for year two. Our entire team is tremendously excited for and quite honoured by the opportunity to be a part of another incredible event this June at Oyster Bed Speedway.”

Event promoters are hoping to add Bandoleros to the event this year, asking that interested teams contact them to indicate their level of interest.

Work has already started on this year’s edition of the race with notable changes including no cap for entries and the registration date will be open until June 16.

Nicholls expects to be announcing early entry incentives as the event draws closer.

Lap sponsorships will supplement the event purse; while the total has yet to be determined first place will pay $1,500.00.
