GEAR RULE FOR OPEN SPORTSMAN CARS IN CRATE/SPORTSMAN CLASS HAS BEEN ADDED AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY
Bridgeport, NJ (June 10, 2013) – Starting on Saturday, June 15 at Bridgeport Speedway, a gear rule for Open Sportsman Cars competing in the Crate/Sportsman class will be in place. The final drive for Open Sportsman cars will need to be 5.24 or less. “As I stated at the beginning of the year, I was going to monitor this class and adjust the rules as necessary to level the playing field of the Open Sportsman and Crate Sportsman competing in the same class. I will continue to review the situation,” stated track operator Keith Hoffman.

The new rule goes into effect this coming Saturday as twin 20-lap features for the Big Block Modifieds are on tap. In addition, the Crate/Sportsman will have two features as they will compete in a regularly scheduled main event along with the postponed feature from Saturday, May 11. The Outlaw Stock Cars and the D.A.’S Auto Body and Repair Rookies will be in competition as well. On Saturday, June 15, the pit area opens at 4:00 p.m. with the grandstand gates unlocking at 5:00 p.m. Racing begins at 6:30 p.m. Adult (16 and older) admission will be $20 with students (10-15) being admitted for $10. Kids 9 and under are free. Pit admission is $30 for Bridgeport members and $35 for non-members.

A special mid-week show is set for Wednesday, June 12 as the mighty 410 Sprint Cars roar into Bridgeport Speedway for Night of Wings 2013. A 25 lap main event worth $7,000 to the winner is up for grabs. The “Take the Green” money for this very special race will be a cool $500. A $500 hard charger award is available as well. The top finishing 360 Sprinter will get an additional $1,100.
