The Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour and Speedway 660 have released the practice and race day schedule for Saturday, July 6th.
July has arrived with Canada Day and the summer season. School is out and the vacation period is in full swing. Everybody loves to “come home” to the Maritimes during the summer and part of that homecoming includes a trip out to Speedway 660.
Clifford and Chuck Mercer took the checkered flag in Speedway 660’s first Enduro 200 of the racing season. But it wasn’t easy for the boys from Norton. After building a huge lead after 150 laps, Chuck Mercer who drove the first and third segments of the race, got rear-ended and spent several laps in the pits. That allowed Brody Seveck to close within six laps of the leader. But somehow Team Mercer got their machine back on the track and held on for the win.
Due to the weather, racing on Saturday (June 29th) is cancelled. There is no rain date for this event. However the Enduro 200 is still on the schedule for 2PM on Sunday (June 30th).
