Speedway 660 is taking a break this weekend. The long-weekend in August is traditionally an off-weekend to allow our fans, race teams and staff an opportunity to spend time with their families away from the race track. Wade Wilson recently caught up with Michelle Roy to talk about the season to date, the challenges that come with running one of Canada’s best short-tracks and the final month of Speedway 660’s 2013 season.
Well here we are heading into the long holiday weekend in August. At this point of the season, we usually are anxious to have a little break and get ready for a busy August. But this year, we’ve lost several races to rain-outs, so it’s going to be easy to look past this weekend in anticipation of what’s to come in August.
The Best of the Best 150 was one of our most exciting Pro Stock races of the year. Speedway 660’s RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock Division drivers put on a great show for our fans. There was also awesome action in the Martins Home Heating Sportsman, DMR Auto Sales & Service Street Stock, Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter and West Wood Estate Apartments Bandolero Divisions. Check out this week’s photo album.
Dave O’Blenis is the 2013 Best of the Best Pro Stock 150 champion. But it wasn’t easy for Speedway 660’s RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock points leader. He came from deep in the field and swapped the lead several times with two-time Auto Value 250 champion Lonnie Sommerville before claiming the win.
One of Speedway 660’s biggest races of the season will take place at 2PM today (Sunday, July 28th). The Best of the Best 150 winner will earn a guaranteed starting position in the Auto Value 250 on SpeedWeekend. In addition to watching some of our region’s best Pro Stock teams compete, race fans will also see exciting action in four other divisions. It’s our last race before we take a break for the August Holiday Weekend.
Races have been postponed to Sunday 2pm Sunday 28th July

Speedway 660 is home to the only weekly Pro Stock series in Atlantic Canada. We’ve had Pro Stock racing since day one, way back in 94 and sometimes I think some of us take it for granted. I like all of our awesome divisions, but the RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock Division sets racing in the Geary Woods apart from any other track in our region.
We have cancelled the ENDURO race scheduled for tonight. The weather forecast calls for severe thunder & lightening as well as heavy showers and because of our concern for fan safety, we have decided to cancel the event. There is no rain date for this ENDURO. The next ENDURO is scheduled for Sunday, August 11th at 2PM. Next Saturday night at 7PM Speedway 660 hosts the Best of the Best Pro Stock 150.
