Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour will close out another sensational season this Saturday at Scotia Speedworld, Nova Scotia with the Dartmouth Dodge 200.

After 12 events in five cities, over 40 competitors and 1,650 feature laps, it all comes down to the final 200 circuits to decide who will be crowned the 2013 Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour Champion – and who will cash the $10,000.00 cheque!

Qualifying for the Dartmouth Dodge 200 gets underway at 3:10 pm with the Atlantic Tiltload Time Trials followed by championship racing set for 4 pm. Grandstand gates open at 1 pm.

Three-time series champion John Flemming (Halifax, NS) enters the Season Finale Dartmouth Dodge 200 with a 49 point lead over fellow three-time series champ Shawn Tucker (Fredericton, NB).

Tucker has been dominating the second half of the season but even if he is able to pull off his fifth win of the season and take the Linde Most Lap Led Award, it would give him the maximum 210 points, meaning Flemming will still only need to finish 19th or better in order to take home his fourth title.

The Exide Batteries Rookie of the Year title will also be decided on Saturday at the Dartmouth Dodge 200. What started as four contenders has come down to just two. Dylan Blenkhorn (Truro, NS) currently leads the rookie title chase and sits eighth in the series standings. Blenkhorn has a solid 44 point lead over his closest competitor Cole Butcher (Porter's Lake, NS) who ranks 10th in standings heading into the season finale.

The Dartmouth Dodge Sportsman, Scotia Speedworld's Weekly Racing Series premier division, will take centre stage to determine their champion in a 50-lap feature prior to the Dartmouth Dodge 200. Darren Wallage (Oakfield, NS) enters the race with a 25 point lead over reigning Sportsman champion Aaron Boutilier (Porter's Lake, NS).

The Hydraulics Plus Bandolero cars will also decide their champion on Saturday afternoon. Adam Meehan (Rawdon, NS) enters the final race of the season with a significant 30 point spread over Braden Langille (Shubenacadie, NS).

Admission for Saturday's Season Finale Dartmouth Dodge 200 is $30 for adults; $5 for youth; pit admission is $35. Two day passes are also available - adults are $35, two day pit passes are $40 and include admission to the Weekly Racing Series Season Finale, Friday at 7 pm. Children 7 and under are admitted for free all weekend.
