BRIDGEPORT, NJ (April 11, 2009) - On the second weekend of April, weather played havoc again at Bridgeport Speedway. The 38th season of racing was scheduled to begin on Friday, April 10th. With a wet forecast in place, management cancelled the Friday night opener in order to save all participants and fans the expense of traveling to the speedway. On Saturday April 11th, rain pounded the speedway grounds in the morning and forced officials to cancel the Saturday night card, which was to feature race two of the BPG Tri-Track Big Block Modified Challenge Series and the season opener event for the URC Sprints. Due to the cancellation, race track officials have scheduled a make-up date of Saturday, July 11th for this 30-Lap BPG Tri-Track Big Block Modified Challenge Series race.

With the delays in the start of the season, the first green flag of 2009 racing action at Bridgeport Speedway will now wave on Friday, April 17th at 7:00 PM. The Slingshots by Tobias will make their first appearance at the Southern New Jersey complex. The 270cc and 600cc Micro-Sprints along with the 4-Cylinder Stock cars will complete the Fast and Furious Friday night program. Pit and Grandstand Gates will open at 5:00 PM. Grandstand Admission is $13.00. Pit Admission is $25 with a license and $30 without a license.

With no racing scheduled on Saturday, April 18th due to the BPG Tri-Track Big Block Modified Challenge Series making a stop at New Egypt Speedway, the 2009 season on the 5/8th mile oval will begin on Saturday April 25th at 6:00 PM during EMS/Fireman Night. A big racecard is on deck for the Starlit Saturday night opener featuring Big Block Modifieds, 358 Sportsman, GM Sportsman, Rookie Sportsman and Outlaw Stocks. Also, the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club will be in attendance with many fine race machines from years past. All EMS and Fireman personal will be granted a $3.00 discount for Grandstand admission with proper identification. Grandstand Gates will swing open at 4:00 PM. Adult grandstand admission is $20 with kids 12 and under admitted for free. Pit admission is $30 with a pit license and $40 without a license.

Bridgeport Speedway provides a safe and secure family atmosphere, free parking, giveaways and fan participation games. Billed ‘The Fastest Dirt Track in the East’, Bridgeport Speedway is a banked 5/8th mile dirt oval, featuring a dirt 1/4 mile oval embedded in the center, and is located in Southern New Jersey -- just minutes from Pennsylvania and Delaware at exit 14 off of I-295.
