Bridgeport, NJ (May 14, 2013) – Colonial Pipeline, the owner of a network of pipelines connecting Gulf Coast refineries with markets across the South and Eastern United States, is proud to sponsor Bridgeport Speedway’s Wingate Classic. This event, slated for Sunday, May 26, will be the second hand of the Big Block Modified Poker Series. A $4000 payday will be awarded to the victor of the 40-lap feature with $300 for taking the green flag in the main event. Along with Bridgeport Speedway regulars such as Ryan Watt, Jimmy Horton, Richie Pratt, Jr., Eric Kormann, Mike Iles, Rick Laubach, Matt Harrell, and a host of others, plenty of invaders are expected to be on hand for this race. Bobby Varin, the victor of the 60 Over Special, is planning to be on hand. Billy Pauch, Sr. has informed management of his intentions to race at the Wingate Classic sponsored by Colonial Pipeline.

As they did in May 2012, Colonial Pipeline has collaborated with Bridgeport Speedway to draw focus on the national call before you dig 811 system. 811 is the national phone number to be called prior to any excavation work. Colonial Pipeline is an Atlanta based interstate common carrier of petroleum products and has a vast pipeline system that stretches from Houston Texas to New York Harbor. Colonial Pipeline's local Woodbury, NJ team will be on hand with information on the importance of using the free and easy to use 811 system.

In addition to the Wingate Classic for the Big Block Modifieds, extra distance events with added cash are on tap for the Crate/Sportsman and Outlaw Stock Cars on May 26. The Crate/Sportsman class will compete in the second hand of their Poker Series with $1000 going to the winner and $100 minimum going to the starters of the 30-lap feature. The second round of Black Flagged Racing’s Outlaw Stock Car Shoot-Out Series takes place with plenty of extra incentives including lap money and a gambler’s bonus. All three divisions will have qualifying races and consolation events before their main events. Through their gracious sponsorship, Colonial Pipeline is offering a cash bonus to the heat race victors in each division. The winners of the Big Block Modified qualifying events will receive $150. Victors of heat races in the Crate/Sportsman and Outlaw Stock Car divisions will be awarded $50.
