Fredericton, NB – Just like a brand new car, Speedway 660 has been re-vamped to get a whole new look that is held out to be WicKID!! Speedway 660, formerly known as New Brunswick International Speedway is ready to entertain families and fans alike. After a long winter, with much snow, a long anticipated season is finally underway with the season opener for the 2008 season opening with a bang to a brand new era of racing entertainment.
The 2008 season is going to be host to some new events that have never been seen at Speedway 660. “Chris and I had the opportunity to talk to other fellow track owners and brainstorm some very good ideas to provide some laughs and add a little excitement to those long awaited sun breaks” said co-owner Steve Burns. …..
Speedway 660 has also added some highly anticipated events on their 2008 schedule that are sure to be repeats for following years. Some of these events include the Drive for Cancer on June 14th and the Night of Destruction on July 19th, not to mention the other events such as the two “Best of the Best” races and the Enduro Series. Aside from the scheduled racing events for the 2008 season there will be crowd entertainment such as Food Bank Bingo, crowd pleasing games, Tomato night and frozen t-shirt contests. There will also be group nights such as Fire/Rescue/Police night, Support our Troops night, Scouts night and minor baseball/soccer night.
To add another twist to the changes, Speedway 660 has a new mascot in town, Speedway the Moose! Speedway will be onsite every day throughout the year for various games, events, and pictures with the race fans. As if you couldn’t add anymore excitement to the 2008 season, Speedway will have a new toy, the t-shirt cannon!! The t-shirt cannon will make numerous appearances to deliver t-shirts to the crowd from a longer throwing distance than just a normal person.
To kick off the season, Riverview Ford Lincoln will host the season opener with points racing in every division, the Coast Tire Street Stocks, the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman, and the newly sponsored Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks. This event will go underway at a 6pm race time with heats, dashes ad features all adding on to the events of the evening.
