Speedway 660 Announces 2017 Schedule

Track Release

(Geary, NB – March 6th, 2017) – The management of Speedway 660 is excited to unveil their 2017 schedule of events. The fast 1/3-mile stock car oval will see a total of 15 action packed racing cards produced between May and September. The events will see hundreds of drivers racing towards the ultimate goal of parking their car in Riverview Ford Lincoln Victory Lane. The 2017 season marks the 24th consecutive year of racing at the Geary, New Brunswick track.

Speedway 660 will be the first race track in Atlantic Canada to contest a stock car event in 2017 with the Riverview Ford Lincoln Season Opener slated for Sunday, May 14th at 2pm. An open practice and pre-technical inspection day for teams will take place on Saturday, May 13th. The busy month of May will close with two full point racing programs, including the popular Kids Day on Sunday, May 21st.

Sunday, May 28th will see the return of the Bandolero division with the Tim’s Corner Motorsports Spring Shootout. Fans will be treated to a 20-lap feature by the drivers aged eight to 16 years with the winner of the event receiving the pole for the Tim’s Corner Motorsports Bandolero Blast on Sunday, September 3rd.

The Pro All Stars Series makes their highly anticipated return to the Geary woods on Saturday, June 3rd with a 200-lap feature. The race is a part of “the Road to the Oxford 250” and will see six drivers lock themselves in to the marquee event in Oxford, Maine. Those Oxford 250 provisionals will go to the top three drivers from the United States and the top three drivers from Canada in the Pro All Stars Series 200.

The Pro All Stars Series 200 marks the shift to Saturday evening racing at Speedway 660 for 2017. All races from June to August will have a 6:30pm start time. The track will see off-weekends on August 5th and August 26th, while a non-stock car related event to be announced soon will take place on Saturday, July 15th.
