CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour Tears Through The Geary Woods!

Posted on July 23rd, 2008

Fredericton, NB - The roar of engines will return to the Geary woods this weekend with the CARQUEST Maritime Pro Stock as well as point’s racing for the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman and Coast Tire Street Stocks. This Saturday will be the second time the tour has rolled into Speedway 660 and will be the final time for most of the tour drivers to get practice time before Leisure Family RV Centers SPEEDWEEKEND and the Peterbilt 250.

The Maritime Pro Stock tour always puts on a fantastic show when they roll through the Geary woods and with this weekend’s event expecting an upwards of 30 cars, it’s sure to be another great event! Coming in with the tour are many familiar faces that call Speedway 660 their home track. 2007 Tour Champion, Shawn Tucker, along with drivers Brad Mann and Lonnie Sommerville will return to the Geary woods this weekend take part in the event. Fans can expect to see Speedway 660 regulars included in the car count for this weekend. Drivers such as Brent Wiggins, Greg Fahey, and Matt Harris will take the plunge into the Parts for Trucks 100 against the tour competition.

In addition to the Parts for Trucks 100, fans will be treated to points racing in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman (30-lap feature) and Coast Tire Street Stocks (20-lap feature). Two weeks ago in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman feature Dave Biggar took home the feature win but this wasn’t enough points to catch the current leader, Glyn Nott, who has a 23 point lead over Biggar. Matt Maillet isn’t too far behind the Nott and could easily catch him this weekend with a very good run throughout the evening. In the Coast Tire Street Stock feature Brian Fox, who is only a second year veteran to the sport, took home his first feature win since he started in 2007. Currently in the top contender in the Street Stock points is Jason Shannon with a four point lead over past champion Rick Cashol. This weekend could see a tightening of the points in both divisions and possibly some new points leaders.

It’s going to be another great weekend at Speedway 660 so make sure you check it out! It’s not just for race fans, anyone can come along because its WicKID family fun!
