Fredericton N.B. – This Saturday August 21, 2010, Speedway 660 will host a full day of excitement. Fans won’t just see excitement on the track, but the young races fans will have double the excitement with the rescheduled Kids Day festivities. DQ has hopped on board for another year with Speedway 660 to sponsor the kid’s day festivities.
The evening’s events will begin with an “In-the-Pits” pre-race autograph session from 6pm-7pm, where kids get to meet, have pictures taken and get autographs from their favourite drivers. This is a chance for the young race fans to talk to the drivers as they are not permitted to go in the pit area under the age of 16 during the races. The drivers especially look forward to the opportunity of meeting their race fans and sign autographs for the kids. This is a chance for the drivers to interact with their youngest fans for an extended period prior to the race. The drivers rarely get to leave the pit area as they are usually busy with pre-race meetings and the preparing their cars for the night’s events.
Some of the festivities will be the ever so popular candy scramble on the front stretch during intermission. This will give the youngsters an opportunity to fill their sweet tooth for the evening. Our Speedway 660 mascot Speedway the Moose, will also be on hand to meet and greet with the fans. Speedway has been a hit with the race faces each weekend. So if you see Speedway, don’t hesitate to give him a high five.
Aside from the DQ Kids Day festivities, the Leisure Family RV.com Street Stock will be running a 75 lap event that was rescheduled from last weekend. This will be the first big race for the Street Stocks, and they will get a chance to strut their stuff in a long race. Watch the #54 of Rick Cashol as he is the point’s leader in our Street Stock division at the moment, but Peter Gaddess, #20 and Mike Francis, #23 are hot on his tail. Also, the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman, Coastal Blending and Packaging Pro Stock, the 4 CYL division and the Bandolero division will be on track racing in the weekly points’ series. The point’s season is winding down, with only one week left after this one.
In the Martins Home Heating sportsman division keep your eyes on the #1 of Michael Banks and the #85 of Ken MacKenzie as there is only 3 points between them. Pro Stock drivers Greg Fahey #20 and Chris Duncan #97 are in a point’s battle as well in the Coastal Blending & Packaging division. Our new divisions are also a must to see. The 4CYL division is drawing new cars each week; Mike Weagle #60 of Peticodiac is currently leading the points, with local driver Kevin Dunster #16 running in second. Our youngest racers are driving in the Bandoleros. These young racers are between the ages of 9 – 15 and they put on a great show.
Race fans; be sure to bring your cameras and autograph books. It will be a night of racing that you won’t want to miss.
