As first announced on Facebook this morning, Speedway Miramichi management and organizers of the Maritime Street Stock Showdown at Oyster Bed Speedway have struck a deal which will raise the stakes for some upcoming big Street Stock events!
On May 26th, Speedway Miramichi will host the Brunswick 100 event, with the winner of this race being guaranteed a top 5 starting position in the Discover Kia Maritime Street Stock Showdown on June 23rd. This driver will start no worse than 5th, but will be able to improve their starting position through time trials.
