BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 19, 2011) – Heavy rains pounded the grounds at Bridgeport Speedway as cars and fans were filing in on July 19 for the Jam in Jersey. Due to the wet weather, the Jam in Jersey race was postponed and will now take place on Wednesday, July 20 at 7:30 PM.

At the Jam in Jersey, two thrilling 25-lap Big Block features will be staged including the postponed $3000 to win George Wingate Classic main event from June 16. The top four non-qualified finishers in the first 25-lap Big Block race will be added to the field for the George Wingate Classic contest. If a driver can win both Big Block Modified events on this night and is pre-entered, he will receive $6500 that includes a $1000 bonus for winning both Big Block Modified features.

Also, the Bridgeport Modifieds are on the schedule with heat races and a 25-lap feature. The victor of the Bridgeport Modified feature event will take home $1,200 if the number of entries in the Bridgeport Modified class exceeds thirty. If the car count in the Bridgeport Modified class is thirty or under, the winner will receive $1,000. The $2500 to win Bridgeport Modified feature postponed on June 16 will be held on Thursday, August 18 as part of the mid-week special show to include the Super Late Models.

Unaltered GM 602 engines, 604 engines with a Bridgeport Speedway supplied restrictor plate and 347JR Ford motors with a Bridgeport Speedway supplied restrictor plate will be allowed to compete in the Bridgeport Modified race.
