Fredericton, NB - The temperature hasn’t been the only thing rising at Speedway 660 this past week. The excitement for Leisure Family RV Centers Speedweekend along with the Peterbilt 250 has grown since the opening of the reservation hotline last Wednesday. The Peterbilt 250 is a race where various Pro Stocks from all over Canada and the United States take part in a 250 lap event. This weekend at Speedway 660, the Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks will get a very good practice run with the Coast Tire “Best of the Best” 100 on tap for Saturday.
The “Best of the Best” Pro Stock Series is a two-race mini-series featuring 100 lap events. Position points accumulated during the “Best of the Best” are not added to the season long CARQUEST Pro Stock Division Points Championship. Instead, each driver who runs a “Best of the Best” event receives 30 points towards the overall points championship as well as individual race points that are tabulated to crown the Best of the Best Champion. This will be the final “Best of the Best” for the year however the Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks will get another chance to shine at Speedway 660 with the Peterbilt 250 during Leisure RV Family Centers SPEEDWEEKEND.
This weekend fans can expected entries from the CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour with drivers Lonnie Sommerville and Shawn Tucker, and Dave O’blenis, along with track regulars Greg Fahey, Brent Wiggins and many more are expected to take part in this weekend’s “Best of the Best”. Inaugural Peterbilt 250 winner, Kirk Thibeau, will return to defend his last win in the Irving Lubricants “Best of the Best” on May 31st.
Aside from watching the high flying Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks entertain for 100 laps, fans will also be on the edge of their seats watching the Coast Tire Street Stocks and Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman for another amazing weekend of points racing. This season Speedway 660 has seen many first timers sitting in the Auto Pride Victory Lane.
Could Kirk Thibeau sweep the 2008 “Best of the Best” series and take home the bragging rights as the series winner? Will there be a points lead change in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman and Coast Tire Street Stock division? Make sure you make your way to the Geary woods this Saturday for some edge of the seat action. With this much action it is sure to be WicKID!
