“After taking our annual break for the New Brunswick Day Holiday Weekend and then getting rained out last weekend, fans and race teams are anxious to return to the Geary Woods for a great night of racing“ said Speedway 660`s Max Roy. “The Sharp Shooter 40 and point racing in street stock, sportsman and pro stock will give everyone lots of exciting action as we enter the final month of the racing season.“Fans loved watching these little cars race under the lights in last year’s Sharp Shooter 40.

“Every sharp shooter driver has looked forward to this race all season long and wants to go to victory lane, but it will take a real effort in the shop to prepare our cars and on the track to get the win“ said MacKinnon. “We may be the entry level division of racing at 660, but we work as hard as anyone to put on a great show for our fans and that`s what we are going to do on Saturday night.“Kyle MacKinnon is having an awesome season at 660. He’s hoping to have another great night and take home the checkers from the Sharp Shooter 40.
