(June 28th, 2024) – The 6th annual Ricky Bobby Street Stock 150 is stealing headlines across Atlantic Canada heading into the Canada Day weekend – but the stacked entry list pushing 40 Shur-Fit Automotive, Bumper to Bumper Street Stock competitors won’t be the only drivers packing the pits to put on a show.

What has transpired into the biggest, prestigious, and richest race for a non-late model division, the Ricky Bobby 150 has transformed into a full blown event, and that prestige carries weight for all support classes given the respect and admiration for Ricky Bobby himself. On Saturday night, the Re/Max East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock and Changing Hands Thrift Shop Sharp Shooter divisions will contest points championship races as drivers seek to win on the illustrious night.

Two races have produced two different winners and five different podium finishers for the Re/Max East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stock division. The lone driver to finish on the podium twice is a driver who has found himself in the picture at the checkered flag both races – and now sits atop the point standings with a potential first championship looming. Devin Snell (#10) followed a runner-up finish at the Riverview Ford Season Opener with a feature win on Kid’s Day. Snell bested Kevin Moore (#88) and Ian Rasmussen (#81) last week – those three drivers make up the top three in points ahead of Clark Moore (#54) and rookie Marcel Leblanc (#30).

One driver has thrown his name into the ring this weekend, and is sure to be worth watching during the 75-lap feature as he looks to end a five year winless drought. Seven time track champion Greg Fahey (#20) paced the field for 106 laps during the Easy-Kleen Super Late Model Series Castle Building Centres 150 earlier this month, but drifted back to the back of the top five at the finish. Fahey’s first start with the Re/Max East Coast Elite Realty Pro Stocks could send shockwaves through the class if he can return to Riverview Ford Victory Lane.

The Changing Hands Thrift Shop Sharp Shooter division has been dominated by past champions thus far in 2024 – and one two-time champion in particular. BJ Gillespie (#69) has scored three out of four feature wins through four feature events contested – which has awarded him a sizable points lead as the halfway part of the season nears. The only other feature winner is reigning champion Darren Wilcox (#32), who finds himself sixth in points thanks to a boost from his win.

Averaging over twenty cars a race, the Changing Hands Thrift Shop Sharp Shooter division has been competitive and produced great racing, but everyone is aiming to stop Gillespie’s dominance. Curtis Tremblay (#00), Jason Duffield (#91), Terry Lawson (#14) and Todd Day (#4) all find themselves in the top five in points, and need to find their way to victory lane if they want to chip away at Gillespie’s lead.

When it comes to the 6th Annual Ricky Bobby 150 for the Shur-Fit Automotive, Bumper to Bumper Street Stock division, the stellar entry list is packed with storylines as the region’s top Street Stock talents look to battle for the win.

With the Ricky Bobby 150 of course being a memorial race for the late Rick Arbeau, one driver will be piloting a memorial car in what he hopes will be a trip to Riverview Ford victory lane. Shawn Hyslop (#17) has deviated from his typical #99 with a new number, and a special paint scheme in memory of his mother, Brenda Hyslop. In addition, Hyslop is honoring another longtime member of the Speedway 660 family in Wanda Campbell. Hyslop is a multi-time track champion, and will be carrying some special tributes with him as he seeks to add a Ricky Bobby 150 crown.

Kyle MacKinnon (#22) will be another Street Stock competitor worth watching. MacKinnon scored a podium effort in 2019, and has been having a relatively strong start to 2024 thus far. His third place result from 2019 was truly a breakout night for MacKinnon, and in 2024 he is showing he has star potential. One major gap sits on MacKinnon’s resume – he has never won a Street Stock feature. Could his first win finally come in the biggest race of them all?

Courtney O’Blenis (#87) should not be overlooked, as she will climb behind the wheel of Nick Cudmore’s car. O’Blenis was the winner of the Ricky Bobby 150 in 2019 – the second running of the event – and nabbed a runner-up finish in 2022. A Summit Dodge Sportsman star, O’Blenis loves the Street Stock division and the Ricky Bobby 150 and wants to score another big victory.

Evan Lane (#46) will be making his maiden voyage in the Ricky Bobby 150. Lane is a third generation talent who has consistently been a perennial contender at Petty International Raceway and at other tracks across New Brunswick.
