Bridgeport, NJ (October 23, 2013) – A successful year of racing at Bridgeport Speedway will conclude with the second annual Wild Card Weekend set for Friday, November 15 and Saturday, November 16.

To start the season ending special program, the 358 Small Block Modifieds will invade the 5/8th mile oval on Friday, November 15 with a 30-lap feature paying $3000 to the victor, $500 for tenth and $225 to start the main event. The fourth round of Black Flagged Racing’s Outlaw Stock Car Shoot-Out Series will reward the winner of the 20-lap feature with at least $500. After timed dashes, the TSRS Sprint Cars will participate in an invert/pill draw to set the stage for a 20-lap main event.

On Saturday, November 16, The Gone But Not Forgotten 40-lap feature will see the Big Block Modifieds close out their Poker Series. A $4000 payday awaits the winner of the finale with $500 going to the tenth place finisher and $300 to take the green. This event will be held in memory of Doug Hoffman, the late promoter of Bridgeport Speedway. The fifth hand of the Crate/Sportsman Poker Series will be contested with a 25-lap race.
