Attention Race Fans of ALL types:  You have to be pretty pumped up for this Mid-Week Classic! For the first time ever, the Super Late Models, URC 360 Sprints, and 358 Small Blocks will be sharing the limelight at the South Jersey oval known at Bridgeport Speedway.  Whether you are a fan of the ‘hometown’ modified style race cars, or a fan of the ‘winged warriors’ known as the URC Club, or even a fan of the low-slung high speed Super Late Models, you won’t be disappointed come Wednesday night.

 

The full-fendered-methanol breathing Super Late Models will be making an extremely rare appearance this week.  Even though these 900 plus horsepower beasts don’t frequent the Garden State very often, that doesn’t mean they aren’t ridiculously popular around the rest of the country.  The last visit by the Late Models was in the fall of 2012.  Many of the top regional drivers are looking to capitalize on Wednesday’s $3,000 payday which also boasts $500 for a 10th place finish.  Drivers like the ‘Delaware Destroyer’ Austin Hubbard will be trekking north.  Rest assured, this 2010 World of Outlaw’s Late Model Rookie of the Year driver will have you guys sitting on the edge of your seats with his ‘wide-open, hammer-down’ style of racing.  35-time Bridgeport Big Block winner Ricky Elliott will be lookiricky elliott_2ng to nail down another win at his former home-track.  Don’t count out the ‘The Rocket’ as he knows his way around the 5/8’s more than anyone.  Nascar Xfinity driver C.J. Faison just received clearance from Nascar to participate in this event and will be in the pits on Wednesday.  Faison’s Delaware Auto Exchange have also jumped on board to sponsor and help bring the Super Lates to New Jersey for this event.

 

‘Big Brother’ Dan Stone won the last Late Model race held at the speedway and is lookinDan Stone 21d_2g for a repeat.  This multi-WoO LM winner hails from northeast Pennsylvania is looking to take first place cash.  Former Delaware International track champions Donald Lingo and Kenny Pettyjohn will be in house on Wednesday.  Three young females will be turning some heads too, when it comes to Staci Warrington, ‘The Wild Child’ Amanda Whaley, and Kellie Lewis as they all plan on invading the Bridgeport Speedway.  Ross ‘The Boss’ Robinson, who is fresh off his WoO Great Northern Tour successful swing, is one of the fan-favorites that will be unloading in the pit area on Wednesday.  A full-field of Super Late Models is expected that will also include the likes of Andy Haus, Andrew ‘Rowdy’ Mullins, Danny Snyder, the Bernheisel boys, the Yoder boys, Chuck Schutz, Allen Brannon, Tyler Emory, Al Cheney, and several other regional drivers.  This will mark the Super Late Models only appearance in New Jersey in the 2015 season so make sure that YOU make an appearance Wednesday night.

 

The URC 360 Sprints have been around for what seems like ages and now they’re back in full-force in 2015.  A strong group of racers led by drivers such as multi-champion Curt Michael, Josh Weller, Davey Franek, Robbie Stillwaggon, Randy West, and Mark Bitner will all be in the house on ‘Three for All’ Wednesday.  A host of 305 competitors will be trying to steal the lime light as they have been offered bonuses for qualifying for the event.

 

The 358 Spec-Headed Small Blocks will be making their first of two appearances of the season. Drivers from local surrounding tracks will be bringing their mini-version of a Big Block to Bridgeport for this mid-week special.  Bridgeport regular Ryan Watt won this race in 2014 over a very determined Wade Hendrickson and will be looking to repeat his efforts as will Wade on Wednesday.  Other Bridgeport drivers looking to keep the BLEWETT_2‘money at home’ will be Dominic Buffalino, and Richie Pratt Jr.

 

New Egypt Speedway should be well-represented for the 25-lap main event as recent winner’s and asphalt moonlighters Jimmy ‘Showtime’ Blewett and ‘Liquid’ Lou Cicconi have confirmed they’ll be in attendance on Wednesday.  Throw in the all-time leading feature winner in Bridgeport history in Jimmy Horton, this year’s ’60 Over Special’ winner Ryan Godown, along with Neal ‘The Wheel’ Williams, PJ Oliver, Andrew Bohn, Ryan Krachun, and J-Mac Johnny McClelland and you’re sure to see some outstanding racing.

 

Not to be outdone by any means Grandview & Big Diamond Speedways will be represented by ‘CVD’ Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Steve Searock, Brian Kressley, and Kyle Borror along with a host of other racers.  Delaware’s Shawn Ward and Brad Trice are towing north to try and steal the $$$ to take back down to the ‘First State’.  Throw in Wall Stadium’s Andrew Krause and rest assured Bridgeport Speedway will have a tremendous field on hand come Wednesday.

 

Bridgeport’s also offering all the 602 Crates and Open Sportsman some incentive to come playon Wednesday.  The highest finishing Crate/Sportsman (as long as 5 attempt to qualify) will receive a $500 bonus for the mid-week special.  That could hypothetically result in a $700 last place finish for one of these drivers.
