TCM Notes: Like Valley Raceway, Speedway 660 was washed out last Sunday and will take a second crack at opening up their season this weekend.
New Brunswick’s only race track offering racing weekly throughout the Summer opens with a full card of five divisions, including a growing Pro Stock division which sees Lonnie Sommerville and Greg Fahey returning to try to topple five time champion Dave O’Blenis.
The Martin’s Home Heating Sportsman division will include at least three rookies going at it for the top freshman honors, including Street Stock standout Justin Cole, Blackville teenage drag racer Braxton Stafford and reigning Atlantic Modified Tour titlist Ryan Messer. Veterans Richard Atkinson and Randy Moore are amongst the returnees to the class.
The race is the first for new Race Director Brent Dunphy, new flagman Tim Elliott and lead scorer Jessica White. The event also marks the dissolution of the “Dash” races for Pro Stock, Sportsman and Street Stocks. These 10 lap races have been essentially rolled into the feature, giving us 50, 40 and 30 lap races, respectively, for each of those classes.
