Bridgeport, NJ (April 27, 2013) – On Bridgeport Speedway’s quarter mile dirt oval, Joe Kay conquered the competition to win the 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. Tyler Reinhardt repelled his foes as he captured the 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. Scott Dunn was the victor in the 4-Cylinder Enduro Car race.

After starting in second place, Joe Kay led every circuit to win the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. In the first half of the contest, Kay staved off his rivals on several restarts. Due to a long period of green flag racing in the second half of the contest, Kay was slowed by lap traffic in the final circuits with Richie Keller and Jay Hartman charging closer to the leader. As the checkered flag waved, Kay was able to claim his fourth career victory at Bridgeport. Jay Hartman nipped Richie Keller to finish in second place. Lee Nardelli wound up in fourth with Sam Locuson coming home in fifth. Ernie Miles, Joe Kay, and Jon Keller were the 600cc Micro-Sprint heat race winners. The consolation event was taken by Tim Iulg.

In the 20-lap main event for the 270cc Micro-Sprints, Tyler Reinhardt survived a restart with two circuits left to capture the win. Derek Krum led the opening tour before Reinhardt gained control for the remaining laps. The runner-up spot went to veteran John Blanda. Justin Stillwagon, Charlie Lamanna, and Joe Dopke completed the top five. The qualifying events in the 270cc Micro-Sprint division were won by Joe Dopke and Tyler Reinhardt.

Scott Dunn was the victor in the exciting 20-lap 4-Cylinder Enduro Car race. John Gray paced the field for the opening two circuits. Todd Francis sped past Gray on lap 3 and lost the top running spot to Warren Stradley on the seventh revolution. Dunn motored past Stradley with six tours to go. After losing the lead, Stradley remained very close to Dunn. On lap 18, the cars of Dunn and Stradley were hooked together briefly and Stradley’s night of racing ended as he collided into the inside wall on the front stretch. Behind Dunn, the running order to the finish line was Francis, Mike Dunn, Gray, and Art Knapp.
