Fredericton, NB – Right on the heels of the first big sportsman race of the year, fans at Speedway 660 will be treated to the first big Pro Stock race this Saturday night under the lights. The MAX 1 Advanced Synthetic Pro Stock 150 is a highlight of the early part of the season as regional Pro Stock teams make their way to Speedway 660 in search of a checkered flag and the coveted provisional starting spot in the 10th Annual Pro Stock 250 on Labor Day weekend. Saturday night’s winner will not only receive a trophy and a cheque but also a provisional starting spot in the “250”.
“Pro Stock teams are looking to take a lot of stress out of their Labor Day weekend by capturing the Max 1 Advanced Synthetic 150 and being awarded the 250 provisional” said Speedway 660 Co-Owner Steve Burns. “The Max 1 event is always an awesome race against our local Saturday night heroes and the outsider invaders that make their way from the Maritimes and Maine”.
The second most important pro stock event of the year lights up Speedway 660 on Saturday night. The Max 1 Advanced Synthetic Pro Stock 150 will attract a lot of interest from competitors and fans alike. That’s because the winner of the 150 is guaranteed a starting position in SPEEDWEEKEND’s Pro Stock 250.
Our regular stable of pro stockers will have some tough competition because we expect several CARQUEST Pro Stock Tour teams to head to Speedway 660 this weekend. And a few strong state-side competitors are likely to cross the border to try to seal the deal.
With so much at stake, we can expect one of the best races of the year. After all, the winner will secure a spot in our region’s biggest and most prestigious event of the season. With about 50 pro stockers expected to try to qualify for 28 spots in the 250, winning the 150 this weekend is huge.
