HORTON TAKES BIEVER'S MODIFIED TWICE TO VICTORY LANE AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY
BRIDGEPORT, NJ (August 2, 2009) - On Bike Night at Bridgeport
Speedway, Jimmy Horton took Dick Biever's Alpha Mills Modified to
victory lane twice as he captured both 25-Lap Big Block Modified
features. Frank Dorry, Jr. was the victor in the 358 Sportsman
contest. The GM Sportsman feature was won by Eric Kormann.

Stan Frankenfield, Jr. took the lead at the drop of the green in the
regularly scheduled 25-Lap Big Block feature with Steve Durand, Ryan
Watt and Jimmy Horton in pursuit. Horton began his drive to the front
as he passed Watt for third on lap 5 and motored by Durand on lap 7 to
move into the runner-up spot. Also on lap 7, Wade Hendrickson, who
started the feature in the ninth position, swept by Durand to gain
third place. Horton hounded Frankenfield, Jr. for a few laps before
taking over the lead on lap 11. Once in front, Horton successfully
negotiated the lap traffic in the caution free event to win his second
feature of the year. Hendrickson worked his way up to second place on
lap 16 and finished in the runner up spot. Third place went to Watt
with Chad James finishing in the fourth position. Frankenfield, Jr.
and Chic Cossaboone battled for fifth position in the final laps with
Frankenfield, Jr. regaining the spot at the finish line. The Big Block
Modified qualifying races were won by Horton, Frankenfield, Jr. and
Cossaboone.

In the makeup Big Block Modified feature from Saturday, July 25th,
Mike Franz took the lead at the start with Ryan Watt, Ron Roberts and
Jimmy Horton in the chase. After multiple cautions and restarts
following the completion of one lap of racing, Watt escalated to the
front with Horton jumping into second place on lap 2. One circuit
later, Horton was leading the pack. After Stan Frankenfield's ride
stopped in turn 2 on lap 4, Steve Durand, Steve Bottcher and Wade
Hendrickson were all able to get by Franz on the resumption of action
to take third, fourth and fifth respectively. Hendrickson charged past
Bottcher and Durand to take third place on lap 8. One tour later,
Bottcher got past Hendrickson following another caution and restart.
At the halfway point, Horton had built a comfortable six second lead
over the pack. On lap 15, Hendrickson's machine billowed smoke causing
the yellow lights to flicker again. When the green waved again, the
second and third place cars of Watt and Bottcher tangled briefly and
caused Watt to lose a few spots. Durand took advantage of the
situation and became the new man in second place. Durand's second
place run came to an end on lap 18 as he slowed down in turn four to
bring out the final caution of the event. On the last restart, Horton
fought back a strong challenge from Bottcher to keep his lead and went
on to claim his second checkered flag of the evening and third of the
year. With the two victories on this night, Horton now has 117 career
wins at Bridgeport Speedway. Bottcher finished in second place with
Chad James coming home in third. Watt fought his way back to a fourth
place finish and Scott Irwin wound up in fifth place.

Frank Dorry, Jr. outgunned Sean Gunther at the start of the 358
Sportsman feature and led every lap of the 20-Lap feature to claim his
first career 358 Sportsman checkered flag at Bridgeport Speedway.
Dorry, Jr. was able to fight back a late race challenge from Gunther
on his way to victory lane. Gunther held on for second with third
place going to to Travis Hill. Brett Ballard and the veteran Ron
Roberts completed the top five. Chuck Hopkins and Jesse Hill each won
a 358 Sportsman heat race.

In the GM Sportsman event, Eric Kormann took the lead from Neal
Williams on lap 7 and went on to win his first feature of 2009 at
Bridgeport Speedway. The win was Kormann's ninth career victory in the
GM Sportsman division. Williams finished in second place with third
going to Corey Anderson. The top five was rounded out by Kyle Borror
and Michael Cogdill. The GM Sportsman heat winners were Chuck Buchman
and Kormann.

Nelson Outten III was the winner in the Demolition Derby presented by
Smashmasters.
