PICTOU – Cassius Clark continues to hold the lead driving the No. 13 entry owned by Rollie MacDonald of Pictou in the Parts for Trucks Maritime Pro Stock driver standings.

Clark, who is from Farmington, Me., has amassed 1,010 points and will be looking for his third win this season when the circuit resumes on July 16 at Riverside International Speedway in James River for the annual IWK 250 feature.

Clark has won both races at Scotia SpeedWorld that took place on May 21 and June 18.

Dylan Blenkhorn of Truro has also won two races and is 18 points behind Clark in second place with 992 points.

Blenkhorn won the first feature of the season at Riverside on June 11 and also won on June 25 at Petty International Raceway in River Glade, N.B.
Greg Proude of Springvale, P.E.I. won the fifth and most recent race last Saturday at Speedway 660 near Fredericton, N.B.

Clark has kept the lead by contending in other races.

He was second last Saturday when Proude was able to hold him off over the last 20 laps after passing pole-sitter Donald Chisholm of Antigonish. Chisholm was forced to retire after 80 laps.

Clark finished third behind Blenkhorn and Chisholm on June 11 at Riverside.

He was third behind Blenkhorn and runner-up Cole Butcher of Porter’s Lake, N. S. at the Petty race.
