Kids Get In Free Beginning This Saturday at Speedway 660
In an effort to make coming to the races more affordable for families, Speedway 660 has raised the age of kids who get free admission. Beginning with this Saturday’s Weekly Championship Point racing event, all youngsters 12 and under will be admitted free. And that goes for every Speedway 660 event.
“Our racing events provide incredible family entertainment and we wanted to do something to make it a little easier on the pocket book and encourage more families to come out to the races” said Speedway 660’s Max Roy. “With school out and the summer vacation period just beginning, we thought it would be a great time to begin providing free tickets to more of our younger fans.”
This Saturday night fans of all ages will see exciting racing in the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooter, DMR Auto Sales Street Stock, Martins Home Heating Sportsman and Re/Max Group Four Realty Pro Stock Divisions. With points on the line, drivers in every division will race hard to keep their championship or rookie of the year hopes alive.
“The standings are tight in every division and the rivalries are really starting to heat up so this will be a great night of racing” said Roy. “With warmer weather in the air, the arrival of the summer vacation season and free tickets for kids 12 and under we encourage everyone to come out for a great night of racing.”
Adult ticket prices for Saturday’s event are $14, Youth tickets (13 to 15 years of age) are $10 and pit passes are $2. The Family Pass, which includes tickets for two adults and two youths, is $38. Children 12 and under are now admitted free to every Speedway 660 event.
There is no rain date for this weekend’s event. If the weather is unsettled on Saturday morning fans and race teams are encouraged to call the Speedway 660 race line at 506-454-7223 or visit www.speedway660.com for race day status updates.
