Management for the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour (PST) is proud to announce the return of RJ Poirier Heavy Equipment & Repair as one of the series race sponsors for ’23. They will be the presenting sponsor of the RJ Poirier Heavy Equipment 150 at Riverside International Speedway on June 10, the first of four stops this year for the series at the iconic high-banked 1/3-mile oval.
The race will be round three of 11 as top super late model/pro stock car racers in the Maritimes contest their skills at five tracks in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island en route to the series championship. 2023 marks the 22nd season of the series.
Kyle Reid (Fort McMurray, AB, and native of Sydney, NS) is the defending champion of the RJ Poirier Heavy Equipment 150. The spring PST race at Riverside dates back to 2001; until 2012 it was contested as a 100-lap event and has since been a 150.
Fans attending the RJ Poirier Heavy Equipment 150 on June 10 will also see the Auto World Allstar Sportsman Series and the Dulux Paint Street Stocks. Tickets for the event will be available approximately four weeks in advance at www.riversidespeedway.ca.
