TIGHT POINT BATTLES SET TO CONTINUE ON AUGUST 3 AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY
Bridgeport, NJ (July 30, 2013) – On Saturday, August 3 at Bridgeport Speedway, two tight championship point battles will continue as an enhanced card of racing is presented. On this night, two 25-lap Big Block Modified features will be held. Along with the regular feature, the postponed Big Block Modified main event from Saturday, July 20 is set to be held.

With two opportunities for points on this Saturday, Ryan Watt will be seeking to increase his narrow advantage in the Big Block Modified rankings. Watt, aided by his fourth feature win of the season on Saturday, July 27, has regained the points lead and sits atop of the championship standings with 720 points. The Boyertown, PA wheelman has a slim five point edge over Jimmy Horton. Horton has collected two feature victories this year. Behind Horton, Richie Pratt, Jr. sits in third place with 683 points. Rick Laubach, the 2012 Big Block Modified champion, resides in fourth with 659 markers and Mike Barone completes the top five with 616 tallies. The winner of the regularly scheduled feature will earn a guaranteed starting spot in the Short Track SuperNationals race that is scheduled for Saturday, October 12 at Five Mile Point Speedway.

The chase for the Crate/Sportsman championship is even closer than the pursuit for the Big Block Modified title. During this Saturday’s 20-lap Crate/Sportsman feature, Matt Budd, a three-time winner in 2013 with 817 markers, will be looking to enhance his three point lead over Mike Cogdill. Third place belongs to Brad Roberts with 746 markers. Marc Herman is in fourth with 707 points and Ricky DiEva rounds out the top five with 669 points.
