FREDERICTON: Entertaining a new generation is the focus of one of Canada’s top stock car racing facilities for the 2008 season. A new name and a commitment to a new era of entertainment had race teams and fans excited at the annual awards banquet at the Fredericton Inn on Saturday night.
Speedway 660, located on Route 660 near Geary, will be the home of “Wic-Kid family fun” when the racing season begins in May. Entertaining long time racing enthusiasts and a new generation of fans will be the focus every week of the upcoming season.
“Our drivers and crews provide an on-track product unequalled in Canada, but now we are going to raise the bar on the entertainment value of that product” said Speedway 660 co-owner Steve Burns. “We are repackaging the entire racing program with a focus on entertainment for the kids and families who come to visit us.”
