(HALIFAX, NS - June 9th, 2015) - This Friday, June 12th, Scotia Speedworld hosts FanFest.

Josh Langille (Coldbrook) and Braden Langille (Shubenacadie) each took Hydraulics Plus Bandolero features for their age group. Along with Braden Langille, Dan Smith (Lower Sackville) and Dave Matthews (Kennetcook) each began their championship defenses in the Coors Light Truck and Chickenburger Thunder divisions, respectively, with a stop in victory lane. Freshman driver Cory Hall (Jolicure, NB) took home the Strictly Hydraulics Legends victory while Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour point leader Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro) picked up the checkered flag in the Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman Series.
