Here is the schedule of events for this Saturday July 16th-2011 Schedule of Events
Pro Stock 150 and Sportsman 100
Hold onto your hats because this Saturday, Speedway 660 comes alive with another unbelievable night of action. The Best of the Best Pro Stock 150 is the scheduled event but because of a rain-out earlier in the season, we’ve added the Martins Home Heating Sportsman 100. Two blockbuster races on the same night, all for the price of one!
But wait, that’s not all. The Hanwell Village Mart Bandoleros, the 4 cylinders and the RV World Street Stocks will also be on track to entertain you. Because of all of this incredible action, please take note of the special start time of 6 o’clock. Starting an hour earlier will allow us to complete all of the racing and get everyone on the road back home at a decent hour.
Fredericton, NB – After watching Speedway 660 point’s leader Greg Fahey of St. Stephen lead the first 84 laps of the Parts for Trucks 100, Fredericton’s Shawn Tucker’s No. 52 car was good enough on the outside on the lap 83 restart to overtake Fahey en route to his first checkered flag of the Parts for Trucks Maritime Pro Stock Tour.
Starting ninth, Tucker moved quickly, but patiently to the front of the field. He was up to seventh by lap four, sixth by lap eight, and in the top five by lap 14.
Tucker continued his push towards the front, passing Maritime Pro Stock Tour point’s leader going into the race, Wayne Smith on lap 17 for fourth. He moved into third on lap 30 and by lap 48 he was directly behind Fahey.
The final 52 laps turned into a constant battle for first, with the caution on lap 83 bringing an end to Fahey’s dominance on the day.
The weather looks like it will move through by mid afternoon so we should have a great evening for racing tonight at Speedway 660. All systems go!

Fredericton N.B. – This weekend Speedway 660 will welcome the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour’s annual visit to the Geary Woods.
Upwards of 28 cars are expected to make the trip to Speedway 660 this weekend including some of our own weekly O’Leary Auto Group Pro Stock regular drivers. Locals expected include multi time champions Greg Fahey and Dave O’Blenis, as well as Kevin Moore and rookie Steve Halpin.
Everybody loves Pro-Stock racing. It’s the biggest, loudest, fastest and most prestigious brand of motorsports in our region. On Saturday night the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour visits Atlantic Canada’s most popular race track. Speedway 660 is proud to roll out the welcome mat for the Maritime Tour and excited to host race number five in that series.
Home Turf for Tucker
Fredericton driver Shawn Tucker must be happy to have a short haul this weekend. Not only that, he probably is looking at his home town 100 lapper as an opportunity to have a strong finish and move up in the standings. Tucker, currently sits a respectable 3rd, but has a lot of work to do to reel in point leader Wayne Smith.
July 2, 2011
On the eve of the third annual FanFest 2011 where upwards of 4,000 fans filled the bleachers at Speedway 660, St. Martins John Rankin made the podium for the first time this season winning the Martins Home Heating Sportsman feature.
The feature was dominated early on by Steve Seveck of Temperance Vale and Danny McNeill of Douglas, with Seveck holding onto first spot through the first ten laps before Seveck’s No. 44S and McNeill’s No. 80 got together in turn two giving Saint John’s Randy Moore the lead with Rankin moving up to second.
Both drivers battled over first through two cautions with Moore holding onto the lead until a caution on lap 27, which gave Rankin the outside line. On the final restart Rankin took Moore on the outside to take the feature with Moore having to settle for second.
