We are starting to see some good, old fashioned rivalries rise up at Speedway 660 this season. In case you haven’t noticed, racing is a competitive sport and when the competition heats up, racers are going to lean on each other, try to intimidate each other and do whatever it takes to get over to the Speedway 660 Victory Lane!
Rick Cashol, the defending RV World Street Stock champion, is no stranger to rivalries at Speedway 660!
Richard Atkinson is still looking for his first Speedway 660 feature victory of the year. But the popular Geary driver is making a habit of finishing on the podium in the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman Division. On Saturday night Atkinson finished second for the second straight week in the 30 lap Sportsman feature. Two weeks ago Atkinson finished third. Brent Roy won the race over Atkinson, while Glyn Nott came home third. Mark Harris won his sportsman heat and the dash, while Dave Biggar won the other heat.
“I really don’t know what to say, this is an unbelievable run for the third straight week” said Atkinson. “Three podium finishes at Speedway 660 is a big accomplishment for us and we hope to have another one next week at the Martin’s Home Heating hundred lapper.”
Racing is on tonight at 7PM at Speedway 660. Weather conditions are great and the pit gate opens for race teams at 2:30 this afternoon. The grandstands open at 5PM and the Bandolero and Four-Cylinder Division heat races begin at approximately 6:20. Heat races in the other divisions begin at 7PM.

Fredericton, NB: Race teams in five exciting divisions head to the Geary Woods on Saturday evening to hunt for championship points.

Ken MacKenzie has won the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division championship for the last two years. He took us all by surprise winning the title in 2010, but no-one was shocked when he repeated the feat in 2011. But MacKenzie won’t win it again this season! Wade Wilson, Speedway 660’s announcer, talked with Kenny about his 2012 season.
Ken MacKenzie has become a real fan fave at Speedway 660. The 2010 and 2011 Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman champ has jumped into an A.L. Gullison Disaster Kleenup Pro Stock in 2012 and is having the time of his life! Continue reading
Johnny Clark’s third straight PASS 200 win at Speedway 660 reminded me of that old MeatHead, I mean MeatLoaf song: “Two out of Three Ain’t Bad”. Only in Johnny’s case it’s four out of five.
Yup, Clark’s win on Sunday was the fourth in his last five trips to the Geary Woods. In 2010 Johnny won our PASS race and the Auto Value 250. In 2011 he won the PASS 200 again and finished a disappointing, for him at least, 9th in the Auto Value 250. And of course this past weekend Clark made it four out of five by taking his third straight PASS 200 at Speedway 660…and please excuse my English, but that ain’t bad!
Here’s Johnny! Johnny Clark wins his 3rd consecutive PASS 200 at Speedway 660 and 4th race in his last five appearances in the Geary Woods!
Fredericton, NB: Speedway 660 has become Johnny Clark’s home away from home. The Hallowell, Maine driver led the field to the checkered flag, winning his 3rd straight Pro All Star Series 200 in the Geary Woods. The 2010 and 2011 race winner dominated the second half of Sunday’s race to take the victory in car 54.
“I love this place and we took a big swing at the car at the mid-race break and the boys in the crew did an awesome job” said Clark. “We’ll definitely be back here for SpeedWeekend and try to become the first driver to win three Auto Value 250 races.”
The PASS 200 is on for 2pm today. Weather conditions are great and the pit gate opens for race teams at 9:00am this morning. The grandstands open at 12PM. Heat races in all divisions begin at 2PM.
