(Geary, NB – July 31st, 2018) – Speedway 660 officials are excited to announce a new program that will see five drivers punch their tickets into Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 150 on Saturday, September 1st. The top five drivers in the Firecracker Sportsman 150 on Saturday, August 11th will receive a guaranteed starting position in the September classic.
With $7,500 going to the winner of the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 150, starting positions will be at a premium with more cars expected to qualify than there are starting positions in the race. This allows drivers to take some of the SpeedWeekend pressure off should they finish in one of the top five positions in the August 11th Firecracker Sportsman 150.
SpeedWeekend 2018 is fast approaching and is headlined by the McLaughlin Roof Trusses Pro Stock 250 on Sunday, September 2nd and the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 150 on Saturday, September 1st.
