Bridgeport, NJ (July 15, 2013) – There will be plenty of action on and off the track this weekend at Bridgeport Speedway. The quarter mile track will see action on Friday night with racing moving over to the 5/8 mile oval on Saturday evening.

After having off the past three weekends, the Friday night racers are itching to get back to action. This weekend marks a big day for the inner oval racers as there will be a full night of racing with a five feature show on July 19. The 600cc Micro-Sprints will compete for a hefty $500 first-place prize courtesy of S&D Racing and the 270cc Micro-Sprints and 4 Cylinder Enduro Cars will be in action. Joining the regular three divisions will be the 8 Cylinder Enduro Cars. This will mark their third appearance of the year on the “little track” as they compete in their normal 50-lap event. The 8 Cylinder Enduro Cars will not start before 9:30 p.m., thus allowing any of the traveling teams plenty of time to arrive before their feature event. Also on the agenda will be the first appearance of the “Wingless” 600cc micro sprints as the drivers will shed their wings for this bonus race.

Saturday will have three themes all in one night of racing as it will be Banner, Bike, & Pennsylvania
Resident Night at Bridgeport Speedway. The mighty Big Block Modifieds, Crate/Sportsman, and Outlaw Stocks will all be in action on the 5/8 mile track. All fans are encouraged to show their creative and artistic side by making a banner of their favorite race car drivers for the banner contest. There will be three age groups with prizes for all the winners. Age groups will be Adult (16 or older), Teen 10-15, and children 9 and under. This will also be Bridgeport’s third “Bike Night” of the season. All motorcycle riders (driver) will be admitted free entrance to the grandstands and will get to display their bike in the midway throughout the night. June’s bike night saw over 30 fabulous motorcycles on display for all the fans to admire.

Last but not least Saturday will be the first ever “Pennsylvania Resident” Night. Anyone with a valid ID of PA residency will be admitted for only $10 to the grandstand for Saturday’s Big Block Modified, Crate/Sportsman, and Outlaw Stock show. “We wanted to switch it up a little this week and reach out to our neighbors across the bridge,” offered promoter Keith Hoffman who wants to give his home-state fans a taste of what Bridgeport is all about. “We appreciate everyone’s support this year but we know it’s a little harder when coming from out of state with the tolls and extra fuel costs. Hopefully this will show that we’re always thinking about our fans and thinking of ways to make it a little easier to get to the track.”

Bridgeport Speedway provides a safe and secure family atmosphere, free parking, giveaways and fan participation games. Billed ‘The Fastest Dirt Track in the East’, Bridgeport Speedway is a banked 5/8th mile dirt oval, featuring a dirt 1/4 mile oval embedded in the center, and is located in Southern New Jersey -- just minutes from Pennsylvania and Delaware at exit 14 off of I-295.
