Current points leader Emmett Donahue (28) is shown racing against the defending points champion Nick Chaisson. Chaisson has been on a roll of late moving up the leaderboard and currently leads the Street Stock division in wins after capturing the first round of the Super Series Saturday night at the Oyster Bed Speedway.

For the first time in a very long time the Street Stock division at Oyster Bed Speedway was given top billing with the Modified division taking the night off. The division was kept at home to make way for both the Enduro one hundred and round one of the PEI Ford Dealers Street Stock Super Series.
Earlier in the night Ricky Myers continued his winning ways with a double win. Matt Boyle also captured his first win in the division as a rookie.
Defending points champion Nick Chaisson started off the season winning his opening two races, but was dogged by bad luck in the month of June. His best finish was fourth. Chaisson turned his fortunes around in July and by the time he headed into the feature he had won three out of five races.
A multiple car pile-up on the fourteenth of July saw Jamie Stewart get the worst of it. His highly dedicated team worked over one hundred hours over the week getting the car ready to race on the oval. Their hard work paid off as he was able to open up his night with a third place finish and a second.
The 50 lap feature did not get off to a good start. After two cautions flew on the opening three laps, race officials began to worry that drivers and fans were in for a long night. However the drivers proved everybody wrong going the next forty-seven laps without a single interruption. Jamie Stewart would lead the opening thirty laps before being overtaken by Nick Chaisson. Nobody was able to track down the points champion as he drove home to his sixth win of the season.
Gerald MacQuarrie was beginning to rein in Chaisson but in the end he ran out of laps and settled for second. Stewart capped his successful night off with a third in the feature.
Mike Macleod from Sydney, Nova Scotia may have had the best car on the night. In every one of his races the driver was forced to start at the back of the pack. Not letting this deter him he never finished any worse than fourth including driving past sixteen cars in the feature for a fourth place finish. If there had been a few cautions during the feature Macleod could have challenged for the lead.
Charlie Adams pulled off something that may never have happened at the Speedway before. While driving in the Mini-Stock division he completed a sweep of all three races he was involved in. He followed that up by capturing the Enduro one hundred for his fourth win of the night.
Troy Burke was able to snag two victories in the Outlaw division.
