SMITH AND COSLOP GAIN FIRST BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY FEATURE WINS
Bridgeport, NJ (July 27, 2013) – At Bridgeport Speedway, a pair of drivers gained their first wins on the quarter mile track. Matt Smith grabbed the checkered flag in the Integrated Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprints with Steve Coslop making his inaugural visit to victory lane after winning the 270cc Micro-Sprint contest. In the 4-Cylinder Enduro Car race, Warren Stradley was the victor.

In the 20-lap main event for the Integrated Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprints, Matt Smith led every step of the way to gain his first feature victory. After the original start was marred by an incident that resulted in two cars flipping, the race went non-stop as Smith jumped out to the lead from his outside pole position and never looked back. In the final five circuits, Smith navigated through heavy lap traffic to preserve the win. Jermain Godshall completed the race in second with Steve Bracall taking third. After starting tenth, Lee Nardell finished in fourth and twelfth place starting Chris Locuson came home in fifth. The Integrated Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprint heats were captured by Richie Keller and Jon Keller.

Steve Coslop held off Tyler Reinhardt in the second half of the 20 lap 270cc Micro-Sprint feature to earn his first win at Bridgeport Speedway. Coslop started fourth and set the pace for the entire distance. With Reinhardt taking the runner-up spot, Dave Nelson finished in third. John Blanda and Justin Stillwagon completed the top five. Justin Stillwagon and John Blanda won the qualifying events in the 270cc Micro-Sprint division.

Warren Stradley rolled to his fifth consecutive checkered flag in the 20-lap contest for the 4-Cylinder Enduro Cars. Stradley wrestled the lead from Todd Francis on the third circuit and led the balance of the event. Joe LaClaire drove a strong race to claim the runner-up spot on the last lap. Francis, John Gray, and newcomer John Webster rounded out the top five.
