(FREDERICTON, NB – March 21, 2022) – Speedway 660 and Riverview Ford Lincoln have announced an expansion of their marketing relationship. Riverview Ford Lincoln is one of the longest standing promotional partners at the track and one of the most prominent brands at the Geary, New Brunswick oval. In addition to their current activations at the Speedway, Riverview Ford Lincoln branding will adorn the SpeedWeekend Sportsman Showcase on Saturday, September 3rd.
The automotive dealership on Hanwell Road in Fredericton has been the longtime provider of the official pace vehicle for the track and has welcomed dozens of drivers into Riverview Ford Lincoln Victory Lane over the past decade. Both will continue to be Riverview Ford Lincoln branded in 2022 along with the Riverview Ford Lincoln Season Opener, which will take place on Sunday, May 15th. The Riverview Ford Lincoln Season Opener will be highlighted by a 100-lap kickoff for the RE/MAX East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock divisions, along with racing action in the Late Model Sportsman, Shur-Fit Auto Parts and Bumper to Bumper Street Stock and Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter divisions.
The SpeedWeekend Sportsman Showcase will also have Riverview Ford Lincoln branding on it. The Riverview Ford Lincoln 150 is expected to attract drivers from across the region with the new “Dry Tire” format that is used at several tracks in Nova Scotia and Southeastern New Brunswick. The marquee Late Model Sportsman race of the season at Speedway 660 on the track’s biggest weekend will pay $2,000-to-win with further payout and contingency awards to be announced ahead of SpeedWeekend. In 2021, Alexandra O’Blenis (Boundary Creek, NB) added to her already vast Late Model Sportsman resume with a win in the SpeedWeekend Sportsman race.
“Riverview Ford Lincoln has been one of our longest standing partners and they truly get how racing impacts the community and fans,” said Brent Roy of Speedway 660. “The 2022 season is shaping up to be one for the record books! We’re excited to see Riverview come on board and help us boost SpeedWeekend into an even better event!”
