the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour. The event is the first of the year for the facility which has been idle for all of its typical season due to COVID-19.

 When the facility was shortlisted by Nova Scotia’s Public Health authorities as one of four sports stadiums in the province being considered for larger gatherings, it was all hands on deck to have a Guest Management Plan approved and prepare the facility accordingly.

 The event tickets sold out in less than three days with a limited grandstand capacity of 1250, less than 15 per cent of a full house during pre-COVID times.

 Besides pro stock, fans will see the Napa 50 presented by Henry’s Auto Pro and the Nova Scotia debut of the Hot Rod Classics Vintage Race Car Series. The grandstand gates open at Noon on Saturday, racing starts at 2:30 p.m. Fans are encouraged to arrive early to allow extra time at entry for COVID-19 screening. Re-entry is discouraged unless absolutely necessary to lessen foot traffic so fans are also encouraged to bring everything they need for the afternoon at the time of first entry.
