Fredericton N.B: After winning the Firecracker 150 last week, Glyn Nott of Burton won his first feature for points this season tonight at Speedway 660.

Points, Points, Points! Wade’s Weekly Issue #12

Posted on August 16th, 2011

Focus on Points Racing

For the next two weeks Speedway 660 drivers will concentrate on championship point racing. Some are contending for one of our five divisional titles, while others are trying to hold onto or get into the top five or top ten positions. And don’t forget the Rookie of the Year battles.

Sometimes we get a little pre-occupied with the big events at Speedway 660. But any hard core fan knows there is nothing “regular” about a regular night of points racing in the Geary Woods! We have five exciting divisions and a total of about ninety race teams competing.

Chasing Points
Winning a championship at Speedway 660 is a big deal. There are several strong competitors, who have been racing for years, who have never been able to win one of our titles. So, for the next two weeks everyone will be giving it all they’ve got to win a championship or move up in the standings.
