The Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter Division is the fastest growing form of racing at Speedway 660. A few years ago the division barely got off the ground with a half a dozen cars, but today the racing is exciting and the car count continues to grow. Wade Wilson recently caught up with Jeremy Doran, one of our top sharp shooters!

It was a tough weekend for stock car racing families in the Maritimes. Mike Stevens died after a crash with just two laps to go, in a Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour race at Oyster Bed Speedway on Prince Edward Island. Mike was well-known here at Speedway 660. I’m pretty sure he ran a Sportsman car with us before competing in our Pro Stock division and then moving on to the Maritime Tour.
