Saturday July 12, 2014
For the third season in a row, the Bridgeport Speedway will present its Night of Wings racing program. Night of Wings III is coming your way this Wednesday, July 16th with a new look and a new twist to the previous two events.

The 360 Sprint Cars will headline this year's show instead of the 410s from past seasons. Sprint car teams from many different venues have shown their support for this year's event. Fresh off his two wins during PA Speedweeks will be Greg Hodnett in Mike Heffner's #27. Eight time URC Champion, Curt Michael out of Oceanview, DE will be wheeling the Bill Gallagher #5G in Wednesday night's action.

URC will be well represented with the likes of Davie Franek, Josh Weller and Michael at the top of the list. There has also been support out of the Empire Super Sprint organization from New York. ESS representation will be headed by Jason Barney and Jeff Cook.

An added incentive has been offered to encourage the support of the Hilborn Tri-State Race Saver 305 Sprints. While at somewhat of a cubic inch disadvantage in the engine compartment, the $500 to take the green plus an additional $300 bonus to the best finishing 305 should entice some of the TSRS race teams.

Co-promoter, Mike Heffner has also announced plans to raise funds to benefit Charlie Leffler through this year's event with another silent auction.

Added to this year's Night of Wings III are the 358 Small Block Modifieds - complete with sail panels! The top names in both Big Block and Small Block Modifieds are expected to compete - including Bridgeport regulars Jimmy Horton, Ryan Watt, Rick Laubach, Richie Pratt Jr., Wade Hendrickson and Mike Iles. This event is also attracting the best of the invaders, headed by the likes of Craig VonDohren, Duane Howard, Ryan Godown, Jimmy Blewett and Lou Cicconi.

Racing gets underway at 7:30 Wednesday evening. Thursday, July 17th has been set aside as a rain date for this event, should it be needed.
