Scott Alexander of Dartmouth Nova Scotia earned the biggest win of his career Saturday
night, taking his Uncle Reg/Mighty Mufflers Ford to the $4,000.00 (US) victory in The
Forbes Chev Olds 150, race number two in the 2001 Pro All Stars Series schedule.
The Pro All Stars inaugural Canadian event saw 27 cars take the green on the
flat 1/3 mile oval at Scotia Speedworld in Halifax Nova Scotia. Alexander wrestled the
lead away from rookie David Avery on lap 47 and never looked back, despite repeated
challenges from Pro All Stars regular Ben Rowe. Rowe came home in second, with Maritmer
Wayne Smith third, New P.A.S.S. overall points leader Sam Sessions fourth and Adam Friend
a solid fifth after starting near the back of the pack.
Time trials were cancelled due to on and off showers that halted the
action on four occasions. Heat winners were Andy Shaw, Louis Mechalides, Alexander and
Thomas Oliphant earned the Northern Race Tires Rookie of the Race
award, coming home in the 11th spot.
