“We expect between 80 and 100 race teams to invade the Geary Woods on Saturday to get the short-track stock car racing season off to a roaring start” said Chris Johnston, one of Speedway 660’s owners. “The Riverview Ford Lincoln Season Opener is always exciting and after a long off-season our fans, sponsors, race teams and staff are all ready to get going.”
It’s been over eight months since Shawn Tucker became the third two time AutoValue 250 winner at the 2011 SpeedWeekend. Between now and SpeedWeekend 2012, Speedway 660 will be busy providing fans with the best racing in Atlantic Canada.
“We are proud of the brand of racing that has developed at our track over the last two decades” said Steve Burns, another Speedway 660 owner. “Our race teams and sponsors deserve a lot of credit for helping us grow stock car racing in the Fredericton area and our dedicated employees and volunteers make it possible for us to deliver great entertainment to our fans.”
On Saturday night at 7PM Speedway 660 comes to life and the 2012 season will more exciting than ever. Awesome competition in five divisions means there will be continuous action during the weekly 3 hour show.
“Fans have asked to see more of the Hanwell Village Mart Bandoleros and 4 cylinder division racers and we are happy to accommodate that request” said Johnston. “This year the BandoKids and the 4 cylinder teams will race at every event except the Pro-All Star Series tour, the Parts for Trucks tour and Enduros.”
