Race fans are getting ready for double header action in the Geary Woods this weekend. At 7PM on Saturday night Speedway 660 hosts the Firecracker 150, one of our region’s biggest Sportsman races of the season. Then at 2PM on Sunday, the second Enduro of the season will take center-stage.
“The Firecracker 150 for Martins Home Heating Sportsman drivers is always a great race and after taking last weekend off, everyone is ready for an intense night of racing” said Speedway 660’s Michelle Roy. “I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few out of town drivers head our way this weekend for the Firecracker and to get some seat time here before the Irving Blending and Packaging Sportsman 150 on SpeedWeekend.”
Race fans will also see the Westwood Estate Apartments Bandolero, the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters and the DMR Auto Sales and Service Street Stocks in action. Sportsman and Street Stock heat races gets underway Saturday at 7PM, but the Bando and Sharp Shooter heats run at 6:20.
Matt Maillet (right) is congratulated by Richard Martin after winning the Martins Home Heating Sportsman 100 earlier this season at Speedway 660. Maillet hopes to put the #29 back in the Riverview Ford Lincoln Victory Lane on Saturday night, but the competition is going to be stiff in the 2013 edition of the Firecracker 150!
“On Sunday afternoon the Enduro race teams will be anxious to shake things up with their unique brand of racing” said Roy. “After getting rained out a few weeks ago the Enduro drivers and their fans can’t wait for the green flag to fly for their second race of the season.”
