John Flemming of Halifax, Nova Scotia will officially be crowned as the first four-time Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Champion on Saturday night in Moncton, New Brunswick.

The season will officially come to a close on November 23rd at the Crowne Plaza as the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will host their annual awards gala in the 'Hub City'.

The ballroom is expected to be packed with Tour teams, drivers, officials, sponsors and fans as they celebrate the accomplishments of the 2013 season. While Flemming will be the driver receiving the big trophy and the $10,000 share of the $50,000 Parts for Trucks point fund, the series will be honoring their 16 full-time teams for their standings finishes.

Drivers will also be recognized through a number of contingency awards and vendor programs they were eligible to compete for during the past season. New this season is the Irving Blending and Packaging Fan Favorite Award, which will see the driver selected by an online vote receive a cash bonus.

One of the most unique trophies in all of stock car racing in Eastern Canada is the Exide Batteries Rookie of the Year "battery" trophy.

Dylan Blenkhorn of Truro, Nova Scotia will officially receive the trophy on Saturday after edging out Cole Butcher (Porter's Lake, NS) and Denver Foran (Edmonton, AB) for the top freshman honor.

Also to be awarded on Saturday is the prestigious Cathy Ledwidge Memorial Trophy. The award is presented to the Most Sportsmanlike Driver in the series, as voted on by their peers. Last season, Flemming was voted as the recipient of the Cathy Ledwidge Memorial Trophy.

The festivities get under way at 7:00pm on Saturday at the Crowne Plaza Ballroom with dinner prior to the awards and dance.
