(August 13, 2016) Kyle Boudreau picked a great time to win his first feature race at Speedway 660 in over two years. Boudreau held off all challengers to take the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter 40 Saturday night. Brody Levesque drove home second, while Kyle MacKinnon had to settle for third.
“It’s been a long time between feature wins for us, but the wait was worth it because it’s pretty special to get to victory lane in the biggest sharp shooter race of the season” said Boudreau. “We won the championship last season without winning a feature race and we were beginning to wonder if we would ever win another one, so this victory tonight makes this entire race team pretty happy.”Kyle Boudreau spent most of Saturday night’s Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter 40 running side-by-side with Kyle MacKinnon.
