Mascots Strut Their Stuff this Week at Speedway 660!

Posted on June 17th, 2009

Fredericton N.B - Saturday night under the lights in the Geary woods will be Fredericton Inn’s Weekly Points racing  + Mascot Night. Points are heating up in all divisions. Local Mascots will be out in full swing strutting their stuff in some crazy events to capture bragging rights for another year!  If any organisation has a mascot, that would like to register for the Mascot Challenge, please contact Angela @ 454-RACE (7223) for more information.  The more the merrier!


It is going to be hard to top last weekend Coast Tire Street Stock feature race. It was a story telling night for sure. The points in the Coast Tire Street Stock division are very close there are only twelve points separating the hope five. Shawn Hyslop is leading the points after the first feature of the 2009 season. Brian Fox is a close second only four points behind and has also had some good finishes with a second place podium finish last week. Jason Shannon, Robert Raynes and Bill Belleville, round out the top five in points. All of the drivers in this division have a chance each week of picking up a race win.

In the always exciting and competitive Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division, we see some new names on top of the points this season. Young gun, Brent Roy, is leading the points for two weeks in a row now. Roy just turned 19 years old a couple weeks ago and you would never know it by seeing him race. This young guy is running as hard and as well as the veteran drivers.  Young Matt Maillet, is second, with six points separating him and Roy. Michael Banks is third and he is also having a pretty good season with a podium finish in last week’s feature.  It is really nice to see Richard Atkinson’s name close to the top of the leader board as well.  Atkinson is a veteran driver at the speedway and has found his way to the podium too. He is nineteen points behind the leader.  Wade Harris who won a feature at the season opener and last year’s rookie of the year Derek Christie are tied for fifth, only twenty-three points behind. This division of racing is one of the best classes of racing in Atlantic Canada.

Seven is the number of points that separates point’s leader Glenn Rasmussen’s Big Black Dodge from 5th position’s Big Kevin Moore in the Irving Lubricant’s Pro Stock division. Glenn already has a feature win this season. After only racing a few races in the 2008 racing season, Glen is back for a full season to try and add another points championship to his resume. Glenn is a multi-time points champ at Speedway 660. Second in points and only one point behind is the inaugural points champion at Speedway 660, Chris Duncan. Duncan has been having a good season. Winning back to back features in the 2009 season, Matt Harris is having an outstanding season, third in points only three points behind the leader..  Last year’s points Champion Greg Fahey is only four points out of the lead, in the fourth position.

Each of these divisions of racing is exciting to watch. So don’t miss is it. Also available for the 2009 are newly designed Speedway 660 t-shirts. Come on out to the Geary woods this weekend and check out Speedway 660 for some WicKID Family Fun!
