(August 17th, 2016 – Fredericton, NB) – Speedway 660 is pleased to announce a continuation of their partnership with McLaughlin Roof Trusses Limited which will see the company become title sponsor of the Pro Stock 250 event on Sunday, September 4th. The race, which enters its 16th season in 2016, will now be known as the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250.
The McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 is the culmination of Speedweekend 2016, a four day racing event that draws teams and fans from across Eastern Canada and the North East corner of the United States. Thousands converge at the Geary, New Brunswick oval to enjoy exciting racing action from the Bandolero division all the way up to the high powered Pro Stock class. The McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 is also one of the richest races in Canada, boasting a $100,000 purse with a guaranteed $15,000 to the winner.
“McLaughlin Roof Trusses is proud to sponsor the Pro Stock 250 race this year,” said Andy Fox of McLaughlin Roof Trusses. “Speedweekend is a very exciting time and we look forward to seeing all the participants. I’m sure they’ll put on a great show for the fans!”
“We are very happy to continue this great partnership with McLaughlin Roof Trusses,” stated Max Roy of Speedway 660. “We have had amazing support from this great New Brunswick company over the past couple years with the Best of the Best Pro Stock 150, but this year they stepped up to the plate and have once again shown their unwavering passion for the sport. We look forward to having one of our best Speedweekend events to date, headlined by the McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250!”
The McLaughlin Roof Trusses 250 has already created quite a stir in the local racing community. When registration opened for the event, 37 teams filed their intentions to compete in what is expected to be the biggest Pro Stock event in Atlantic Canada on the year. The latest to file an entry is Re/Max Group Four Realty Pro Stock championship contender Kevin Moore of Fredericton.
