How Low Can Rowe Go?
When you have more than twenty great pro stocks and twenty great drivers the results are long green flag runs, few cautions, exciting lead changes and great racing through the entire field! That’s what we got last week when the Pro All Star Series pulled off one of those “Remember When” nights at Speedway 660.
Fredericton N.B – Saturday night under the lights in the Geary woods will be Fredericton Inn’s Weekly Points racing + Mascot Night. Points are heating up in all divisions. Local Mascots will be out in full swing strutting their stuff in some crazy events to capture bragging rights for another year! If any organisation has a mascot, that would like to register for the Mascot Challenge, please contact Angela @ 454-RACE (7223) for more information. The more the merrier!

Fredericton, NB – Seven odd years ago (2002) Speedway 660 fans were watching time trials for the PASS race when local favourite Dave O’blenis rolled onto the track to take his lap and see where he would start the event. To the pleasure of the fans in attendance O’blenis laid down a blistering lap that would have put him on the pole ….. with one exception! PASS favourite and multi-time PASS champion Ben Rowe laid down a lap that beat O’blenis’ by a mere one thousand of a second (and set a track record of 13.152)….. “When we laid that lap down in qualifying I could hear the fans screaming form inside the car, it was pretty awesome!” said O’blenis.
O’blenis leads Louis Mechalides around under yellow early in the 2002 event!
Expected entries for this weekends PASS 200: (as of Thursday night):
