A Spectacular Season: Wade’s Weekly 17 # 18

(Sept. 7, 2017) This is the last Weekly of 2017, so I thought it would be nice to look back at the season that was. Since SpeedWeekend is still fresh in our minds, I’ll focus on the “regular season”. Yes we had a lot of rain that cancelled some events and forced us to use rain-dates on other occasions, but we saw some phenomenal racing and several drivers recorded huge wins. Continue reading

You Gotta Be Here: Wade’s Weekly 17 #17

(Aug. 28, 2017) Most people, who come to the 660 web site, are looking forward to the biggest and most exciting racing event of the year. But some of you have never been to SpeedWeekend and likely want to know what all the fuss is about. So in this edition of the “Weekly” I’ll attempt to put into words what you’ll see, hear and experience and why everyone gets all fired-up about SpeedWeekend. Continue reading

Six little words: Wade’s Weekly 17#15

(Aug. 14, 2017) “That’s why I love to race.” That’s what Greg Fahey said on Fan Appreciation Night after winning the RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock feature. Greg has won plenty of features in the past, in Street Stock, Sportsman and Pro Stock, but none more dramatic than the door-to-door finish he had with Dave O’Blenis last Saturday night. The margin of victory, according to our electronic transponder scoring system, was .047 seconds. That’s less than half a tenth! Continue reading

For the love of the fans: Wade’s Weekly 17 #14

(Aug. 7, 2017) Every year, when August rolls around, I always ask myself where did the racing season go? In a month the gates at Speedway 660 will be locked up and another long off-season will begin. But we’ve got some pretty exciting things happening between now and then. Fan Appreciation Night, the Night of Champions and SpeedWeekend are the remaining entrees on our 2017 racing menu.

We Needed That: Wade’s Weekly 17 #12

(July 24, 2017) Last Saturday truly was an amazing night at Speedway 660. The Sportsman Firecracker 150, the Pro Stocks, Street Stocks, Sharp Shooters combined with an incredible Christmas in July promotion was just what the doctor ordered. Everybody, I mean everybody I ran into in the Geary Woods had a big smile on their face. That’s because the weather was finely fine, the racing was superb as always and with Santa in attendance you couldn`t help but sport a big grin! Continue reading

12 Year Drought is over: Wade’s Weekly 17 #9

(July 4, 2017) Where were you on Sunday, July 2nd, 2017? I hope you were in the stands at Speedway 660, because if you were you saw something special. Those of us who hang out in the Geary Woods know that Greg Fahey is a great driver. Four RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock titles, two DMR Auto Sales Street Stock championships and one Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman crown is an impressive resume. But Sunday he did something that hasn’t happened here since 2005.  Continue reading
