This Saturday Speedway 660 holds its final point race of the 2013 season. In addition to the great racing fans are invited out on the track before the races to meet the drivers. From 5:30 until 6:15PM all of the drivers, from all of the divisions, will be on the track with their cars. Fans will have the opportunity to mingle with the drivers, get some autographs, driver cards and treats for the kids.
Speedway 660 is on the verge of crowning its 2013 division champions. This Saturday night, titles will be awarded in five divisions. In the 20 year history of Speedway 660, Brian Gillespie is our most celebrated champion. He won DMR Auto Sales & Service Street Stock titles in 94 and 95 and Martins Home Heating Sportsman championships in 98, 01, 02, 07 and 08. Wade Wilson recently had a conversation with our seven time champ.
Right around this time every year, I look at the calendar and wonder where the racing season went. It’s kind of like being a kid all over again. I remember getting out of school in late June and looking forward to an endless summer, only to realize a few short weeks later that September was coming along much faster than I thought it would.
