Originally planned for June 14th was the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 100, however due to Mother Nature’s interference, Speedway 660 officials decided to add on another 100 lapper, the Irving Lubricant’s “Best of the Best” Pro Stock 100, which had been
rained out two weekends prior. With all this excitement the usual start time of 6pm has been moved to a special start time of 5pm!
