The New Brunswick Day holiday weekend is coming right up in a few days. This weekend Speedway 660 will sit silent - giving fans, race teams, sponsors, volunteers and employees a mid-summer break.

Sharpe Lands on Roof Before Winning First Enduro of the of the Year!

Posted on July 22nd, 2012

Pat Sharpe got off to a great start in defense of his Enduro championship at Speedway 660 on Saturday night. Sharpe claimed the first Enduro 200 of the racing season with a dramatic win. The Woodstock driver was leading late in the race when second place Chuck Mercer spun him out and rolled him over with just two laps to go. The red flag came out, Sharpe’s car was rolled back onto its wheels and went into the pits where a windshield was replaced and a flat tire replaced. The defending Enduro champ had a five lap lead on the field at the time and got back on the track in time to claim the first Enduro of the year.

“My pit crew is an amazing group, they never give up and when I went into the pits they flew into action and got me back on the track for the win” said a jubilant Pat Sharpe. “We are going for our fourth Enduro championship in a row and this is a great way to start the season.”

Patience is a Virtue - Wade’s Weekly # 10

Posted on July 16th, 2012

The racing sure is intense this year! All five divisions at Speedway 660 are extremely competitive and drivers are going as fast as they can, for as long as they can, to earn as many championship points as they can! And championships are a big deal in the Geary Woods, just ask any driver who hasn’t won one!

Over the years, from my vantage point, it seems that patience is an important part of racing’s big picture. Remember Brain Gillespie’s five Martin’s Home heating Sportsman Championships? On at least one and maybe two occasions, the Nackawic Night Train won the title without winning a feature race!

Mild-mannered Randy Moore is quietly going about his business in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division this year. Last Saturday night Moore, who leads the Sportsman championship points race, got a third place finish in the feature - his first Speedway 660 podium of 2012!
