Speedway 660 Schedule Out, Registration Open for 2014

Story by Tim Terry; Tim’s Corner Motorsports

The 21st season of racing at Speedway 660 is set to get kicked off two weeks earlier in 2014.

Management at the Geary, New Brunswick oval has released the schedule for their upcoming season, which features a few new events. On the top of the schedule includes a new opening date, which is two weeks earlier than recent years and goes back to years ago when the track opened up on Mothers Day weekend. The first event, the Riverview Ford Lincoln Season Opener, will take place on Sunday, May 11th at 2pm. The day prior, May 10th, will feature a pre-tech and practice day. The track will also run a full card on Sunday, May 18th at 2pm before switching to the traditional Saturday night at 7pm time slot.

The track has also adopted Speedweekend qualifiers for the Westwood Estate Apartments Bandoleros, Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters and DMR Auto Sales and Service Street Stocks throughout the 2014 season. For those familiar with the Peterborough Speedway (ON) Chase for the Colours leading into Autumn Colours weekend, it works similar, with the winner of the select division races starting on pole for their Speedweekend event. The first of three takes place on June 14th with the Westwood Estates Bandolero Blast 30, the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters 30 will go green on June 28th with the DMR Auto Sales and Service Street Stocks shining for 50 laps on July 12th.

The Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division will have in-season extended races on June 21st (Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman 100) and August 9th (Firecracker 150). The RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock Best of the Best 150 will again return to the last weekend in July, with the 150 going green on the 26th. The winner of that event will lock themselves into a provisional for the Auto Value 250.

Speaking of the Auto Value 250, the 14th Annual Speedweekend will close off the season in 2014 with a similar layout to the 2013 season. The Harvey’s Corn Boil and RE/MAX Concert will kick off the weekend on Friday night, August 29th with the Irving Blending and Packaging Sportsman 150 opening up the racing portion of the weekend on Saturday, August 30th with the Fredericton Gun Shop Sharp Shooters. Traditionally one of the best races of Speedweekend, the Irving Blending and Packaging 150 boasted 36 entries in 2013 and included a Who’s Who of Sportsman drivers in Atlantic Canada in one of the deepest fields of talent anywhere in Atlantic Canada for the class.

The stock car portion of the season comes to a close with the climax of Speedweekend, the Auto Value 250. Last year, Shawn Tucker went to victory lane for the third time in the event, taking home over $25,000 in the balance.

The very popular Enduro class is back for 2014, with three events on June 29th, under the lights on Saturday, July 19th and September 1st. The team of Clifford and Chuck Mercer took the three race series in 2013.

The Pro All Stars Series (June 7th) and the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour (July 5th) will make Speedway 660 a crucial stop on each of their Super Late Model Tours in 2014. John Flemming edged out Dave O’Blenis and Shawn Tucker in the exciting, “lights out” 2013 edition of the Irving Blending and Packaging 100 for the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour.
