Everyone loves a good fireworks show, but I also like firecrackers, especially when Sportsman race teams are involved! This Saturday night at 7PM, Speedway 660 will host one of the most anticipated Sportsman races of the season. It’s the Martin’s Home Heating Firecracker 150 and it’s going to be a blast!
Remember earlier in the season when the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 100 got washed out? I sure do. Fans always like the longer Sportsman races and everyone was disappointed we got rained-out on June 23rd. But Speedway 660 officials and Richard Martin put their heads together and came up their version of the Big Bang Theory.
The Martin’s Home Heating Firecracker 150 is scheduled for 7PM this Saturday. Sportsman racing at Speedway 660 is always exciting but this weekend’s race should take that excitement to a whole new level.
The count-down is on for one of Atlantic Canada’s biggest Sportsman races of the season. Race teams are working over-time this week to prepare their cars for the Martin’s Home Heating Firecracker 150 which goes this coming Saturday night at Speedway 660.
It will be dark and quiet in the Geary Woods this Saturday night. That’s because Speedway 660 and its fans, sponsors, race-teams, employees and volunteers are taking the weekend off.
“Everyone deserves a break before we head into the stretch run because after this weekend we’ll being going wide-open until the season ends on SpeedWeekend” said Speedway 660′s Steve Burns. “2012 has been a fantastic season and we know with championships on the line and the Auto Value 250 just around the corner it’s going to be a great finish to the racing year.”
After the New Brunswick Holiday Weekend, race fans will be headed back to Speedway 660 for an exciting final month of the 2012 racing season. The Martin’s Home Heating Firecracker 150 for Sportsman cars is scheduled for August 11th and racing continues every weekend until SpeedWeekend wraps up the season on September 3rd.
Speedway 660 is taking this weekend off. The long weekend in August is a time for race teams, fans and Speedway 660 employees and volunteers to take a break before the stretch run. Wade Wilson recently sat down with Speedway 660′s Chris Johnston and Steve & Tracey Burns to have a Conversation about racing in the Geary Woods.
