Fredericton, NB - Saturday night under the lights in the Geary woods will be the Faster Pastor’s + Fredericton Mitsubishi 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!
We have several pastors registered for the Faster Pastor event. This is a good opportunity to come out and support your Pastor as they will have a chance to get into a Street Stock car and race.
A number of Mascots are ready to compete in the Mascot Challenge including Speedway the Moose from Speedway 660, Sparky from the Office of the Fire Marshall, A&W Root Bear from A&W Prospect St., Georgie Bear from George Street Middle School, Huggy Lion from the Nashwaaksis Lions Club, Curly Top from DQ, and Hugs and Kisses from Jim Gilbert’s Wheels and Deals.
Along with the Mascot Challenge and Faster Pastor race, fans will see weekly points racing in the Coast Tire Street Stocks, Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman, Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks and the AOW division. With just two weeks left of points racing, things are really tight. Who will win? Will there be a first time champ? Will there be a repeat champion? The next couple weeks will tell the tale.
In the Coast Tire Street Stocks, the top three in the points are Brian Fox, Shawn Hyslop and Jason Shannon. They have just 18 points separating them.
In the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division, this may be the year we see a first time champion. Michael Banks has been so close in past years and this year might be his year. John Rankin, one of the great stories of 2009, has had a lot of success and is definitely a contender for the championship. Wade Harris is also hungry for a championship.
In the Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks, last year’s points’ champion, Greg Fahey, is at the top of the charts once again. Three time points Champion Glenn Rasmussen is just 7 points behind and ready to take another championship after only racing part time last year. Don’t count out Kevin Moore who has also had a good year and is nicely sitting in third in the points.
The points are too close to call. So don’t miss it race fans, the next two weeks will be exciting.
If you want to register a Mascot or if you are a Pastor who wants to race, you can still register. You can do so by contacting the Speedway.
