DOPKE DOUBLES UP AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY
Bridgeport, NJ (August 3, 2013) – On Twin 15 Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Joe Dopke swept both main events for the 270cc Micro-Sprints. Andrew Locuson topped the field in the IPM Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. The 4-Cylinder Enduro Car race was won by Scott Dunn.

Joe Dopke made two visits to Bridgeport Speedway’s Victory Lane as he took the checkered flag in both 15-lap features for the 270cc Micro-Sprints. In the first main event, Dopke darted to the front on the opening lap from his third place starting position and paced the field for the entire distance. Chris Locuson captured the runner-up spot. Third place was taken by Justin Stillwagon with Lee Nardelli finishing fourth and Brian Morrill holding on for fifth.

With the top eight finishers from the first event inverted for the second 15-lap feature for the 270cc Micro-Sprints, Steve Coslop grabbed the lead at the start. Tyler Reinhardt motored by Coslop on the sixth circuit. Following a caution period on the seventh tour, Joe Dopke went from third to first on the restart and pulled away from the pack in the remaining laps to rack up his second win of the evening. Reinhardt and Coslop were the next to follow Dopke across the finish line. Justin Stillwagon and John Blanda rounded out the top five. Joe Dopke and John Blanda scored wins in the heat races for the 270cc Micro-Sprints.

In the 20-lap IPM Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprint feature, Andrew Locuson came from the sixth starting spot to take home the win. Jon Keller paced the field for the first nine circuits. Locuson, who had moved into second place on the fifth revolution of the quarter mile track, began to close in on the leader by the eighth circuit. As the top two began to encounter some slower competitors on lap 10, Locuson drove to the inside of Keller in turn three and escaped with the lead. Once in front, Locuson held off the competition on two restarts to preserve the win. Ernie Miles crossed the finish line in second place. Third went to Richie Keller. Bill Thomas and Lee Nardelli rounded out the top five. The IPM Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprint qualifying events were taken by Jon Keller, Ernie Miles, and Tim Iulg.

In the exciting 20 lap race for the 4-Cylinder Enduro Cars, Scott Dunn held off Warren Stradley to win his fifth feature of the season. After leading the pack for the opening three circuits, Dunn lost the lead as Joe LaClaire became the new pacesetter on lap 4. Following a sixth tour caution period, John Webster became the new leader when green flag racing resumed. Two laps later, Dunn took the lead for good and repelled several advances by Stradley in the final tours to gain the victory. Webster, LaClaire, and Art Knapp completed the top five behind the top two of Dunn and Stradley.
