FREES AND SEAROCK RUMBLE INTO BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAYS VICTORY LANE AS BIG BLOCK MODIFIED FEATURE IS POSTPONED
Bridgeport, NJ (July 21, 2013) – At Bridgeport Speedway, Ron Frees rumbled back into victory lane as he collected the Outlaw Stock Car feature. Following a weather delay due to a thunderstorm and prolonged lightning, Steve Searock topped the field in the Crate/Sportsman contest. Due to the weather interruption in the program and ensuing curfew, the Big Block Modified feature was postponed and will be held on Saturday, August 3.
In the 15-lap Outlaw Stock Car feature, Ron Frees racked up his seventh checkered flag of the season. Frees took control of the race on the second circuit following a restart and was never challenged the rest of the way. Jeremy Doerr, who started the contest in twelfth, finished in the runner-up spot. Third place was taken by Tom Wills, Sr. with fourth going to Jimmy Avery and fifth claimed by Brian Ludwig. The Outlaw Stock car heat race victors were Jimmy Hughes and Tom Wills, Sr.
Following a delay due to a thunderstorm and lingering lightning in the area, the 20-lap Crate/Sportsman contest saw Steve Searock rocket to his second victory of the year. Jesse Bonaduce grabbed the lead at the start and led the opening nine revolutions. In a three way battle for the top running position, the eighth place starting Searock scooted to the front of the pack on lap 10 and led the balance of the event. Ricky DiEva ran a strong race and finished in second. The top five was completed by Mike Cogdill, Marc Herman, and Dave Damiano. Ian Humphreys and Dave Damiano won the Crate/Sportsman qualifying events.
As an outcome of the weather delay, the Big Block Modified feature could not be contested on this night due to curfew. This main event has been added to the program slated to occur on Saturday, August 3. The winners of the Big Block Modified heat races were Bob Sarkisian, Dave Witte, and Dom Buffalino. The consolation race was taken by Don Cogdill, III.
