2021, though a struggle in many ways was a big success for our team. We reached some goals, ran the full East Coast International Pro Stock Tour, finishing 6th in the 9 race series. We also made an invitational at Petty International Raceway, giving us 10 races for the season.
Because of Covid restrictions we were unable to make it to 2 races, one was rescheduled and the other we could not attend due to border rules. One was cancelled when Tim Wile, owner of Center For Speed in Shediac New Brunswick, lost his father and for that we pass on our condolences and prayers to Tim and his family.
Our team was fantastic this year. I only got stressed once because I was struggling trying to make the car better. This was the first and only time I got upset with myself. However, by the end of that day we turned our fastest laps ever at Scotia Speedworld.
Special thanks to Shannon Riley, Bob Landry, Jeff DeCoste, Chris White, Tyler Hallahan, Jack Lynds and Aidan Fry for all their help. Aidan posted updates on Instagram for our team, much appreciated.
I also want to thank my very valued sponsors for this season:

We will start redoing our car for 2022 soon. There is lots to do as we reach out to existing sponsors for 2022 and get our car finished early so we can do some shows preseason. My Message Board is still not working properly for me to do updates on Diary of a Season 2021, hoping that gets fixed soon.
Thank you for visiting our site.
This weekend we will reach our 1300th night of racing since 1969. The milestone will take place at Riverside International Speedway on September 11th in the Toromont Cat 150. It has taken tremensous help from, family, friends and sponsors to reach this level of nights raced. I thank God for all His provisions and giving me a great loving family and sending me awesome
Here is the breakdown:
October 2nd will be the 9th of 9 East Coast International Tour events and our 10th for 2021. We are currently 6th in points and should be able to hold on to 6th in our first Maritime points chase.
Special thanks to my crew Bob Landry, Chris White, Tyler Hallahan, Jeff Decoste, Shannon Riley and Jack Lynds for all their help in 2021. We may have one more race in New Brunswick depending on the border situation with restrictions.

We raced Scotia Speedworld on Saturday night, the 25th of September. I wasn’t able to update the Message Board “Diary of a Season 2021” yet, but soon I hope.
We were determined to beat our best lap time at this track and were successful in our heat race. We started 7th, finished 7th but for a change, we didn’t fall too far back from the pack. The leaders were in the 14:3’s and we turned a 14:536, our best ever at Scotia.
We are still 6th in the standings, it pays to make every race.
Our next race will be our 10th of the season, and the 9th of the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour. We will have one final race in New Brunswick in October, but confirmation on that race will come after our next most important race in the Tour series.

This Saturday, September 11th, we will reach our 1300th night of racing since 1969, and our 857th consecutive night at Riverside International Speedway in the Toromont Cat 150.
The milestone was achieved by the support many people. My family, friends, crew members, sponsors, competitors, track owners and fans.
I thank God for blessing me so much in this awesome sport that really is all about the people we meet and get to know.
Here are numbers from each class I ran to reach 1300
* 32 Mini Stock
* 869 Canadian Vintage Modifieds}
We will compete in our 1300th night of racing since 1969 in the East Coast International Pro Stock Tour at Riverside International Speedway September 11th.
I have many to thank for this milestone. I thank God for giving me a great supportive family, great friends, faithful crew members, excellent sponsors, hard working promoters who have supported our team, many competitors, their families, crew and of course our dedicated fans.
We also just passed 2900 races since 1969. But we’re not finished. Our biggest goal to reach is 50 years with Quaker State and possibly 900 consecutive nights…we’re at 856 not including this coming race event. It will be our 8th of the season.
More on our 1300 nights in Diary of a Season 2021 next week.
Thanks for visiting our site.
We’ve lost a few races due to Covid restrictions but looks like we are getting a few more so we really might only lose one race of the 12 our team had scheduled.
We will lose one in New Brunswick due to border issues but we should be good with the remaining schedule we planned.
September 11th Riverside International Speedway
September 25th Scotia Speedworld
October 2nd Scotia Speedworld….to replace the race we lost at Petty on August 28th
October 10th Shedica, Center For Speed, our 11th race of 2021.
If these 4 races do get completed we will hit 860 consecutive nights at the end of 2021.
Our team will be doing at least 3 more shows this season, one at PYE Chevrolet, and two at Canadian Tire Truro.
