(April 19th, 2023) – One of the most iconic sponsors in Maritime racing will return to present one of the most unique stock car classes in 2023. Speedway 660 is thrilled to share the return of the Fredericton Gun Shop to sponsor the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter division for 2023!
Speedway 660’s four-cylinder and entry level division, the Sharp Shooter class is one of the healthiest divisions in Maritime racing – thanks in part to the long-time support from the Fredericton Gun Shop. Averaging well over 20 cars on track each race, 31 total competitors competed in the division one year ago, with BJ Gillespie becoming the two-time reigning champion of the division. With Gillespie moving up in 2023, the door is wide open for the 2023 championship!
Eleven events are penciled on the 2023 calendar for the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter division, kicking off on Saturday May 13th and wrapping up on Saturday September 23rd. The 5th Annual Fredericton Gun Shop Gunslinger 75 will be a highlight of the season for the Sharp Shooter division on Saturday August 12th.
Having been the title sponsor since 2013, the Fredericton Gun Shop is passionate about motorsports and the entry level Sharp Shooter division. A family owned and operated business located in Douglas, New Brunswick, the Fredericton Gun Shop offers full gunsmithing services on site, as well as sales of both new and used firearms with a diverse selection in stock!
“The action from the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter division is second to none. Consistently producing the largest car count and the most intense action, fans are always on the edge of their seat watching these drivers buzz around the track,” said Brent Roy on behalf of Speedway 660. “Continuing our alignment with the Fredericton Gun Shop vows to only strength and grow this class even more! The best is yet to come, and we look forward to the 2023 season – the 30th anniversary for Speedway 660 and the 11th season as title sponsor for the Fredericton Gun Shop.”
Speedway 660 will kick-off their milestone 30th season on Saturday May 13th with the Riverview Ford Season Opener! Opening day will be highlighted by the launch of the new Super Late Model Series, which will contest a 150-lap feature, with the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter division kicking off their season as an opening act for the Super Late Models.
