CENTRE For Speed Kicks Off Stock Car Season Sunday

The 2021 season for stock car racing finally kicks off this Sunday, July 18th at the Shediac CENTRE for Speed. Races begin at 3 pm. There will be six divisions racing throughout the season contesting for both the Maritime Super Series (MSS)and CFS Track Championship titles. The divisions racing in the MSS kickoff event on Sunday include Sportsman, Street Stock, Mini Stock, Bombers, Ironmen and Bandoleros.

Track Operator Tim Wile noted’ “ We are excited to finally get going with Stock Car Racing after last weeks big demolition event. With travel restrictions and vandalism at the facility it has been a trying year so far. It will be nice to see the cars, drivers, team members and fans enjoy the passion many of us share for this motor sport!”

Tom Nicholls who has been overseeing the promotion of the street stock division and commented “ Its been a long wait but with 22 registered drivers it will be a very good show if the majority are able to show up and race. Covid and travel restrictions has saw most tracks alter their schedules with many racing on the same dates and /or nights. With a limited number of weekends to go around we are hopeful that we can get a strong car count to kick off the MSS”.
