NARDELLI NABS FIRST CHECKERED FLAG OF THE YEAR AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY
Bridgeport, NJ (August 10, 2013) – On the quarter mile track at Bridgeport Speedway, Lee Nardelli nabbed his first checkered flag of the year by topping the field in the IPM Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. RJ Magyari was the victor in the 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. Cheri LaClaire collected her first career win in the 4-Cylinder Enduro Car race.

In the 20-lap IPM Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprint feature, Lee Nardelli came from his eighth starting position to win his first race of the season. When the contest got underway, Sam Locuson hopped out to the lead. In the opening moments of the event, a terrific battle for second place was occurring with Stephen Kemery, Jon Keller, and Nardelli in tight quarters. Following a caution period on the third circuit, Sam Locuson was still setting the pace with Nardelli in the runner-up spot. On lap 11, the top two were side by side when the yellow lights illuminated the track as Sammy Lamothe’s ride stopped in the fourth corner. As action got back underway, Sam Locuson and Nardelli held onto their positions. With five tours remaining, the top two were distancing themselves from the pack and Nardelli was inching closer to the leader. On lap 18, Nardelli darted below Sam Locuson at the entrance of the third corner and escaped with the lead. In the final two revolutions, Nardelli sped away to claim his first win of the year. With Sam Locuson taking second, Jon Keller finished in third. Fourth place was taken by Andrew Locuson and Bill Thomas completed the event in fifth. The heat races for the IPM Pest Management 600cc Micro-Sprints were won by Lee Nardelli and Andrew Locuson.

RJ Magyari took advantage of some misfortune to win the 20-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. After the original start was hindered by a multi-car tangle, Jon Keller took the lead on the second try with Magyari and John Blanda in tow. At the halfway point, Keller had an advantage that was greater than a full straightaway. Unfortunately on the white flag lap with a huge margin, Keller clipped the inside wall in turn two and spun out. After the mishap, Magyari inherited the lead and held off Blanda on the ensuing restart to gain the win. Tyler Reinhardt finished in third. Andrew Locuson and Joe Dopke rounded out the top five. Tyler Reinhardt and Richie Keller recorded victories in the qualifying events for the 270cc Micro-Sprints.

In the 20-lap feature for the 4-Cylinder Enduro Cars, Cheri LaClaire claimed her first career victory after leading the race from start to finish. The runner-up spot went to Warren Stradley. Todd Francis, John Webster, and Art Knapp completed the top five finishers.
