Everyone in Atlantic Canada’s racing community is excited about SpeedWeekend 2012. Lots of folks from Quebec and New England are also on their way to Speedway 660 for the biggest event of the racing season.
Before focusing on SpeedWeekend, let’s look back at one of the most eventful Fan Appreciation Night of Champions in the history of Speedway 660. First off congrats to all of the champs: Cole Boudreau, Luc McLaughlin, Shannon Brake, Glyn Nott and Dave O’Blenis.
They deserve the accolades and recognition that goes with winning Speedway 660 championships. Two division titles were especially hard fought this year. Glyn Nott went into the final point night in fourth place, 17 points out of first. Glyn controlled his own destiny by winning the heat, dash and feature to take the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman title by four points. Shannon Brake started the night nine points behind the leader and won the RV World Street Stock championship by two points.
Shawn Tucker is the defending Auto Value 250 winner and one of the favourites heading into the 2012 race. This weekend Tucker will attempt to become the first three time winner of the race. More than thirty other top Pro Stock drivers from Atlantic Canada, New England and Quebec will visit Speedway 660 for this year’s Auto Value 250.
