BRIDGEPORT, NEW JERSEY (June 16, 2014) -- Tri-State Racesaver Sprint Series competitors participating in the Poker Series events at the Bridgeport Speedway now have another reason to be ‘all-in’ for the five-race series, as Thayer Performance of Trenton, NJ ups the ante offering contingency bonuses including a set of Hoosier rear tires.

In the five Poker Series events, each time a competitor finishes in the top eight their name will be entered into a drawing to win a right rear and left rear Hoosier tire courtesy of Thayer Performance. Drivers are eligible more than once, giving a competitor the possibility of having their name entered five times total. The drawing will take place on the last Poker Series event on November 14.

Thayer Performance will also offer $25 gift certificates to all heat race winners in the five Poker Series events, drivers will be eligible to cash in gift certificates towards the purchase of Aero Sprint Car Wings.

“We’re thankful for companies like Thayer Performance getting involved at Bridgeport,” speedway owner Brian Ramey said. “Our racers go above and beyond to help put on an excellent show and anything we can do to encourage them and help them is a win-win for everyone involved.”

One of Bridgeport Speedway’s most popular events, the ‘Poker Series’ offers competitors the opportunity to create ‘full-hand’ by collecting a card at each of the five races. The competitor with the best hand will take home a $1500 cash prize courtesy of Bethman Auto Center. The Poker Series events will take place at the famed five-eighth mile speedway on April 27, May 17, June 7, June 28 and November 14.

In this series, the action is hot -- and with the first three cards already dealt, everyone has their poker face on. Tim Tanner, Jr. of Newtown, PA currently has the top hand, but with the way this game is played you could easily go from ‘Ace’ to ‘Joker’.

The next event for the Hillborn Injection Tri-State Racesaver Series will be the fourth round of the ‘Poker Series’ on Saturday, June 28th.
