It has been confirmed today that Coast Tire in Dieppe (see bottom of page for contact details, or our links page for website details) has signed on for the 2006 season. "We are very happy to have Coast Tire back for the third year in a row. I couldn't be happier." said driver "Crazy" Chris Powers, "Last year we got Coast Tire a 2nd place finish in the points, this year we hope to better ourselves into 1st for the points.
Confirmed Rides
Sources have confirmed two other drivers for the 2006 season. Ovide Brun is apparently building another car for 2006. Whether it is a ThunderCat or a TIGERcat hasn't been cleared up yet, but rumour has it he'll try again for the ThunderCat division. Also Rodnew Pettigrew is back in '06 with a new ride as well. Nothing confirmed yet, but rumour also has it that the car he has, is a former winner of the Centre for Speed.

2006 Will Be "Year of the ThunderCats"

After a year and a half of taking a backseat to other divisions, the Thundercats are going to be recognized as more than "just a time filler", and PTR's very own "Crazy" Chris Powers is going to be the one to do it.
After nothing but great racing from the ThunderCat division, including wrecks, great racing, and close points racing, PTR and Chris Powers are stepping up to the plate and are going to make the ThunderCat division thrive.
he first piece of good news is PTR coming in with 4 proposed new cars for 2006, 2 of which being part time, and 2 being full time rides. "I'm building a new car for next year, one that will win me the championship, and make me look good while doing so!" quoted "Crazy" Chris Powers, who is bringing in a brand new #26 car to capture the championship that was unreachable to him in 2005 by one position.
But that's not all, to add to the PTR stable, James Powers (car owner and manager of PTR) is building two more rides, one for himself, and one for his wife, Linda Powers, as part-time rides. "I drove the car fr an invitational in 2005, and I'd be lieing if I said I didn't enjoy it. Plus the wife is begging to get in a ride, so I'll have a ride for her too."
The 4t car is the mystery car that may overshadow the whole PTR operation together. "I'm hiring a driver for the 4th car" said James Powers, who is building the 4th car with intentions of giving his son and prized driver a run for his money. "I can'tname names, as I don't have a definate driver, but I am hoping to land a very 'interesting' driver that I believe has great skills behind the wheel."
Oh there's more folks! Chris Powers has taken it apon himself to guide 3 more drivers to build cars aswell. Not only that, news has it that Ovide Brun, Wayne Spicer, and Kevin Skerry may be returning with new rides aswell.

Out with the old, and in with the new

As PTR gets ready to debut the new #26 that will replace the old #26 that was wrecked June 19th, PTR has had several changes in the sponsor department.
This week, PTR has finished it's 4 race deal with Truman's, and due to lack of interest, has not negotiated with truman's to pursue a full-year sponsorship. However, PTR has picked up several new sponsors for the rest of the 2005 year. Kioti Tractor, Gaudet's Chalets & Motel, and Gaudet & Fils Supermarket have signed on and are happy to support PTR through the 2005 season. Also pending sponsorship is Captain Dan's of the Pointe du Chene Wharf.

PTR: You ain't seen nothin' yet!

After the wreck that appeared to end PTR's year with a devastating crash, PTR has announced that a new car has been purchased and has been claimed to be "better than before". Although not much information has been released, Chris Powers has said "the new car is neither a stranger to the Molson Centre for Speed, nor a stranger to myself and my old #26. It will take probably a month to iron out the kinks, but we will be back on the track within 2 to 3 weeks." Be sure to look for the new PTR #26 in the coming weeks.

PTR Hits the Wall

June 16, 2005 was a roller coaster day for Powers Team Racing. "Crazy" Chris Powers captured his first feature win early in the day, wining the hold-over feature that was rained out the previous week. Powers continued an impressive run taking second and first in the following heat and semi-final. It was the final feature of the night, however, that would prove to be costly.
On the 4th lap in turn 2, Powers bumped the 44 car, which sent the 44 down the track, and then back up into Powers in the 26. The two then collided with Mark Ramsey in the 22 car and all three hit the wall at 60mph. Although there was no one hurt, all three cars were demolished.

Test and Tune: PTR A Miss

The Test and Tune is this weekend on the 14th. However, PTR will not be able to show up. During a test of the engine this week several problems arose and have made it increasingly difficult for us to show up at the Test and Tune. So to insure a top performance for the beginning of the season, PTR will not appear at the Test and Tune. However, you can see PTR at the season opener of the Molson Centre for Speed Motorsports Park on Monday, May 23rd, 2005. We apologize for the delay and look forward to see all our fans at the season opener.

News: April 14th, 2005

Today a meeting was held with the owner of Truman's Tavern and as of today Truman's has agreed to a 4 race deal, with a possible full season extension, with Powers Team Racing. We are happy to have Truman's and are looking forward to their involvement in the future.
