This spring we launched the new Speedway 660 website with the new look and feel. One part of the site that has yet to be converted is the Peterbilt 250 History section. For the interim we have posted the link below so fans can access the history info from 2001-2007.
Feel free to browse through the stories and results.
Peterbilt 250 History 2001-2007
Fredericton, NB – Normally we get excited about one racing event over the weekend , but having twice the action and double the racing is event better! Speedway 660 will hold its second double header race weekend of the 2008 season.
Fredericton, NB – After a relaxing weekend that gave fans, staff and drivers a chance to enjoy the hot summer weather, Speedway 660 will return to the Geary Woods with a big event to kick off the month of August. On Saturday, August 9th, Speedway will host the Firecracker 150, the second BIG Sportsman event of the 2008 season. Meanwhile, the Irving Lubricants Pro Stocks will return this week along with the Coast Tire Street Stocks who will provide the supporting cast for the event with points races of their own.
The Firecracker 150 should attract some of the best sportsman cars in the region and fans from all over. The event will be the perfect complement to ramp up the sportsman cars for the O’leary Pontiac Sportsman 150 during the 2008 Leisure Family RV Centers SPEEDWEEKEND and will provide some of the most exciting entertainment of the weekend. Expected entries for this weekend’s event include several teams from Speedway 660 along with other teams from surrounding New Brunswick racetracks.

Fredericton, NB – Speedway 660 has yet to hold an uneventful weekend for 2008 and this weekend isn’t going to be any different. This weekend, under the lights, fans will be treated to two of the biggest events of the year, twin 100 lap events featuring the Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman and Irving Lubricants Pro Stock divisions. 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!
