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

Ours is a Fair-Weather Sport: Wade’s Weekly 15 #5

But stock car racing is dependent on the whims of He who controls the weather! Such was the case this past weekend when an unfavourable forecast caused the cancellation of the PASS event here.
