HOWARD, BALLARD, CONAWAY AND DEVAULT CLAIM WINS ON DAY TWO OF BRIDGEPORT’S BRAY MEMORIAL

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (November 20, 2011) – On day two of the Charlie Bray Memorial, Duane Howard earned $3000 by winning the Big Block Modified feature. Brett Ballard took the checkered flag in the Bridgeport Modified event. The Fallen Friend Fifteen for the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Cars was won by Pat Conaway. Bob DeVault scored the victory in the TSRS Sprint Car main event.

At the start of the 25-lap Big Block Modified feature, Mike Barone pedaled to the front with Craig Von Dohren, Billy Pauch, Jr., Duane Howard and Jack Swain in pursuit. Howard was on the move early as he motored into third with two laps in the books. On the third circuit, Von Dohren tried to grab the lead from Barone but nearly spun out and Howard advanced into the runner-up spot. Howard became glued onto Barone’s bumper until the yellow lights flickered on lap 6 for Sammy Piazza’s stopped car. On there start, Howard had a strong run and brushed by Barone for the lead entering turn one. As Barone fought back, he spun and Pauch, Jr. was caught up in the tangle. When action got back underway, Howard was now in front of Jimmy Horton and Dominic Buffalino. With ten laps in, Howard had half a straightaway lead over Horton. Horton was beginning to chip away at Howard’s lead when a caution period occurred for Sean Gunther on lap 13. On the single file restart, Howard maintained his advantage over Horton. For the remainder of the race, only two caution flags in the final ten laps would slow down Howard as Horton and the rest of the field could not muster a strong challenge. As the checkered flag waved, it was Howard comfortably in front for his third victory of the year at Bridgeport Speedway. Horton held on for second with Buffalino’s strong run resulting in a third place finish. Richie Pratt, Jr finished fourth with fifth going to Jack Swain. Heat race winners in the Big Block Modified division were Billy Pauch, Jr., Jesse Hill and Richie Pratt, Jr. Ron Robert was the victor in the consolation race.

Brett Ballard led every step of the way to take the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature. Ballard started on the pole and drove a smooth race to claim the $1000 first place check. For Ballard, it was his second win of the weekend after Saturday’s victory in the open Modified race on the quarter mile track. Second went to Jordan Watson with Dominic Buffalino claiming third. Ryan Watt and Matt Budd rounded out the top five.

After grabbing the lead from Ralph Gargiulo with two circuits to go, Pat Conaway went onto win the Fallen Friend Fifteen race for the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Cars.  Spider Ensinger led the opening lap before Vern McLaughlin took command. McLaughlin’s mechanical failure on lap 7 turned the lead over to Gargiulo. Starting at the  alfway point, Gargiulo and Conaway waged a multi-lap battle for the top spot until Conaway took over on the thirteenth tour. Gary Klimeczak wound up in second with Billy Wroble finishing in third. Completing the top five were Jeff Dirkes and Ensinger. Brian Ludwig and McLaughlin picked up wins in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car
qualifying events.

Bob DeVault led all twenty laps to win the TSRS Sprint Car main event. Ryan Taylor finished in second place with third taken by Scott Flammer. John Wyers came on late to finish in fourth and Kyle Reinhardt held on for fifth. Victors in the TSRS Sprint Car heat race were John Wyers and Scott Flammer.

STONE, WATT AND BALLARD COLLECT FEATURE WINS ON DAY ONE OF BRIDGEPORT’S BRAY MEMORIAL

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (November 19, 2011) – On day one of the Charlie Bray Memorial, Dan Stone took the checkered flag in the Super Late Model event. The Wingate Classic Bridgeport Modified feature was won by Ryan Watt. Brett Ballard bested the field in the open Modified race on the quarter mile.

Dan Stone led every step of the way in the 25-lap Super Late Model feature to collect the $3000 check. At the start, the polesitting Stone, who set the second fastest time in dash qualifying, out gassed Ricky Elliott for the lead. With five laps recorded, Stone had a half a straightaway advantage over Elliott with Ross Robinson in third place. On the tenth circuit, Stone’s lead was diminishing slightly when the first caution of the event came out for a slowing Matt Murphy. When action got back underway, Stone began to pedal away from Elliott and the rest of the pack. With ten laps remaining, Stone had a comfortable lead over Elliott and Jim Yoder. The final caution of the event occurred on the sixteenth tour of the track as Murphy’s car stopped on the front stretch. Stone held off Elliott on the ensuing restart and quickly began to re-build his lead. Stone continued to pace the lead and crossed the finish line in first. With Elliott taking second, Jim Yoder took third. Dylan Yoder wound up in fourth with Robinson holding on for fifth.

Ryan Watt, the 2011 Bridgeport Modified champion, added $2500 to his bank account by winning the previously postponed 25-lap Wingate Classic for the Bridgeport Modifieds. At the drop of the green, Ron Roberts grabbed the lead with Watt moving into second after starting in fourth. Following a good two lap battle for the lead, Watt scooted by Roberts for the lead on lap 8. Once in front, Watt began to pull away from Roberts with Jordan Watson and Chad James a little further back. With a long stretch of green flag racing, Watt was able to build up a large lead until the first yellow flag appeared for a slowing Ken Eckert, Jr. on lap 18. After the green flag waved again, Watt maintained his lead over Roberts with James climbing into third. On the twentieth circuit, James maneuvered into the runner-up spot. With Watt having a healthy advantage, the final caution period of the race occurred when Travis Hill stopped on the track in the second corner.

On the single file restart, Watt was able to keep his lead over James and began to pull away. As the checkered flag waved, it was Watt in front with James in second.  Roberts, Watson and Keith Hoffman completed the top five.

In the 25-lap open Modified feature on the quarter mile dirt track, Brett Ballard grabbed lead from Rick Wegner, Jr. on lap 5 and went on to score the victory. Richie Pratt, Jr. completed the event in second place. Third went to John Stangle. Jack Swain and Sean Gunther rounded out the top five. Ron Roberts, Rick Wegner, Jr. and Richie Pratt, Jr. were winners in the open Modified heat races. The consolation event went to Jack Swain.

MOTHER NATURE SETS A FINE FORECAST FOR BRIDGEPORT’S BRAY MEMORIAL ON NOVEMBER 19 AND 20

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (November 17, 2011) - Finally, Mother Nature does seem to be a fan of racing. After a season filled with unfavorable forecasts and wet conditions, the weather outlook for Bridgeport Speedway’s Charlie Bray Memorial event on November 19 and 20 is looking fine. With seasonal temperatures predicted and no rain on the horizon, the final racing weekend of the year should be pleasant for teams and fans. This annual season finale at the southern New Jersey dirt track facility honors the late Nazareth Speedway Promoter and Bridgeport Speedway Official who passed away suddenly on December 8, 2008.

The two day event gets cranked up on Saturday, November 19 with qualifying for the Super Late Models and Bridgeport Modifieds on the big 5/8th mile dirt track. A 25-lap main event for the Super Late Models with $3000 granted to the winner and the previously postponed $2500 to win 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature from the Wingate Classic show will be staged. On the quarter mile, a complete show for open Modifieds takes place with heat races and a 25-lap main event paying $1000 to the victor. An Allied Recycling Demolition Derby finalizes Saturday’s activity at the Charlie Bray Memorial.

On Sunday, November 20, Big Block Modified heat and consolation races occur prior to a $3000 to win 25-lap feature. After Saturday’s qualifying contests, another 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature occurs with a potential of $1200 going to the winner if more than 30 cars attempt to compete. The Fallen Friend Fifteen will feature the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock cars in honor of Proformance Cuts owner Marty Kulesza who passed away suddenly on October 25. Rounding out the program will be the TSRS Sprint Cars and Vintage Stock cars. All of Sunday’s action occurs on the outer oval.

LUKE THOMAS AND CHARLIE LAMANNA ARE BIG WINNERS AT BILL THOMAS
MEMORIAL MICRO-SPRINT NATIONALS AT BRIDGEPORT

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (October 9, 2011) - At the Bill Thomas Memorial
Micro-Sprint Nationals at Bridgeport Speedway, Luke Thomas was the
victor in the $1000 to win main event for the 600cc Micro-Sprints. The
$1000 to win feature for the 270cc Micro-Sprints was won by Charlie
Lamanna. Ron Roberts triumphed in the open Modified race.

In the 30-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint main, Luke Thomas held off a furious
charge by Jeff Hartman on the last lap to take home the $1000 check.
After being the fastest in the timed dashes and winning the first heat
race, the polesitting Thomas grabbed the lead as the green flag waved.
Three times during the first half of the race, the front running
Thomas would just be approaching lap traffic when a caution flag would
fly and he would be granted a clean racetrack with each ensuing
restart. With a long stretch of green flag racing occurring in the
latter portion of the race, Thomas would encounter his stiffest
challenge of the contest. In the final five laps of the event and in
lap traffic, Thomas’s advantage over Hartman began to diminish. As the
white flag waved, the top two were in tight quarters. With Thomas
hugging the wall and Hartman using the outside groove upon the exit of
turn four, Thomas held on for the narrow one second victory over
Hartman. Tyler DeVault won the long race battle for third over Lee
Nardelli and Shane Lewis. Along with Thomas, Jeff Hartman and Lee
Nardelli were victors in the heat races for the 600cc Micro-Sprints.
The consolation race was won by Carl Locuson.

Charlie Lamanna survived the caution plagued 30-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint
feature to gain the victory. After taking the lead at the start of the
$1000 to win main event, Lamanna would control the race for the entire
distance. After swapping second place with Randy West throughout the
course of the contest, Jeff Hartman finished in the runner up spot.
With West taking third, Nick Walton wound up in fourth and Dave Brown
finished in fifth. Charlie Lamanna, Jeff Hartman and Randy West scored
wins in the 270cc Micro-Sprint qualifying events.

In the 25-lap open Modified race, Ron Roberts led from start to finish
to score his first victory of the year on the quarter mile speedway.
Rick Wegner drove a strong race to finish in second place. Third place
went to Kevin Vaclavicek. Dave Dissinger and Corey Andersen rounded
out the top five. The open Modified heats went to Ron Roberts and John
Miloszar, Jr.

won by Jeremy Doerr. Pat Conaway was crowned the 2011 Proformance Cuts

At the start of the 25-lap double point season finale for the
Bridgeport Modifieds, Matt Budd bolted to the front with Keith Weber,
Frank Dorry, Jr., Jesse Hill and Jordan Watson in tow. Watson motored
into third with two laps completed and became the leader on lap 3
after a restart. With five circuits recorded, Watson was pulling away
with Brett Kressley, Ryan Anderson and Ryan Watt next in line. By lap
7, Watt had worked his way into third and was closing in on Kressley
for the runner-up spot. After a good battle for second, Watt took over
the spot on the ninth tour as Watson was building up his lead.
Watson’s big advantage over his rivals evaporated when the caution
flag flew for Ken Eckert, Jr. on lap 11. On the ensuing restart, Watt
sped around Watson to take over the lead. Once in front, Watt broke
free from Watson with Chad James running in third. Watt’s advantage
over his rivals was a full straightaway lead when Keith Weber’s spin
brought out the final caution flag of the race on lap 23. Watt held
off Watson on the final restart and crossed the finish line in first
to win his fifth Bridgeport Modified feature of the season. With

finale, Jeremy Doerr grabbed the lead at the start and built up a full
straightaway lead at the halfway point. Broschard, who started the
feature in eleventh place, moved into second place with nine circuits
completed. After a lap 13 restart, Doerr and Broschard battled for
the lead. On the last lap, Broschard took the lead after he scooted
below Doerr on the exit of turn two. With Doerr taking second, Brian
Ludwig’s strong run resulted in a third place finish. Tommy Beamer and
Billy Wroble completed the top five.

In the first ever Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car event on the
quarter mile track, Jeremy Doerr was the victor. Doerr set the pace
from start to finish to win the 20-lap non-point contest. Second place
went to Tommy Beamer as he held off a hard charging Billy Wroble. Pat
Hires took fourth with Bob Hopely finishing in fifth.

Ryan Watt won his second feature of the evening by claiming the 25-lap
Big Block Modified race on the quarter mile. Making his first start on
the inner dirt oval, Dave Dissinger took the lead at the start and
began to encounter lap traffic with five laps completed. In the midst
of lap traffic, Watt wiggled his way past Dissinger to take over the
front running spot on lap 6. Watt held off Richie Pratt, Jr. on
several second half restarts to win his second race of the year on the
inner oval. With Pratt, Jr. securing second, Dissinger’s good run
resulted in a third place finish. Rick Wegner and Darren McCaughey
rounded out the top five. Big Block Modified qualifying events were

WITTE WINS HIS THIRD FEATURE OF THE YEAR AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (September 18, 2011) – On Quarter Midget and Scout
Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Dave Witte won the Bridgeport Modified
feature for the third time this year. Pat Conaway topped the field in
the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car event. In the Big Block Modified
race on the quarter mile track, Ryan Watt took home the top prize.

For the third time in 2011, Dave Witte steered his Ford powered
Bridgeport Modified into victory lane. In the non-stop 25-lap affair,
the veteran Witte took the lead at the start. Five laps into the race,
Witte began to feel the pressure from Travis Hill with Brett Kressley
closing the gap in third. For the next few tours, Witte repelled
Hill’s challenges for the lead. After the scoring counter showed ten
laps had been completed, the top five of Witte, Hill, Kressley, Sean
Gunther and Ryan Watt were in tight quarters with plenty of positional
battles continuing throughout the field. Watt, the current Bridgeport
Modified point leader, motored into third with eleven tours completed.
The top three were in a tight formation with ten laps remaining and
Watt was inching closer to Hill. When flagger Kenny Golden showed the
five to go sign, Witte had pulled away slightly with Hill and Watt
continuing to battle for second. As the checkered flag waved, Witte
was in front with Hill and Watt following him across the finish line.
Jordan Watson, who sits in second place in the point standings, wound
up in fourth. Sean Gunther finished the race in fifth. Watson and
Gunther were the Bridgeport Modified heat winners.

For the ninth time in 2011, Pat Conaway bested the competition in the
Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race. Jeremy Doerr became the leader
at the start with Conaway assuming the runner-up spot on the second
tour in the 15-lap contest. Conaway inherited the lead and went onto
victory when Doerr spun off the track in the second corner on lap 13.
Terry Griffin followed Conaway across the finish line. Bob Dooley had
a strong run to complete the race in third. Doerr came back from the
late race mishap to come home in fourth. Fifth place went to Tommy
Beamer.

In the special 25-lap Big Block Modified feature on the quarter mile,
Ryan Watt sailed his way to victory lane. After starting in third
place, Watt led every lap to win his first race on the inner dirt
oval. Throughout the second half of the event, Watt successfully
managed his way through lap traffic to gain the top prize. Mike Iles,
racing for the first time on Bridgeport’s smaller track, concluded the
contest in second place. Richie Pratt, Jr., Rick Wegner, Jr. and Ron
Roberts rounded out the top five. Pratt, Jr. and Watt were the victors
in the heat races.

NARDELLI NETS 2011 600CC MICRO-SPRINT CHAMPIONSHIP AFTER WINNING THE FEATURE

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (September 17, 2011) - Lee Nardelli netted the 2011
600cc Micro-Sprint championship after winning the final point race of
the season. RJ Magyari scored the victory in the 270cc Micro-Sprint
feature as Richie Keller was crowned the point champion. The
4-Cylinder Stock Car main event and season championship went to Warren
Stradley. Lou Cicconi took the checkered flag in the open Modified
contest.

After becoming the leader on lap 14, Lee Nardelli set the pace for the
remaining distance to score his first 600cc Micro-Sprint feature of
the year. At the start of the 20-lap affair, Richie Keller jumped out
to the front with Jermain Godshall in close pursuit. Coming from the
tenth starting position, Nardelli had motored into third by lap 6. By
the halfway point, Godshall and Nardelli were racing side-by-side in
their pursuit of the front running Keller. On lap 12, Godshall had
inched away from Nardelli and was tracking down Keller. One lap later
with Keller still in front, Godshall clipped the leader and sent him
spinning. Due to the contact, Godshall was sent to the rear of the
field and Nardelli was the new man in front of the pack. Once on top,
Nardelli survived three restarts in the final laps to secure the win.
Driving Eric Brobst’s car, Bill Thomas finished in second. Jim Tippin
wound up in third place with Rick Stief in fourth place and Tom
Fraschetta in fifth place. The qualifying events were won by Stephen
Kemery, Richie Keller and Chris Locuson. Nardelli narrowly won the
season point championship over Bob DeVault.

RJ Magyari led wire-to-wire to win his first ever 20-lap 270cc
Micro-Sprint main event. Second place went to Charlie Lamanna. John
Blanda, Richie Keller and Randy West rounded out the top five. Justin
Stillwagon and Jonathan John each picked up a heat race victory in the
270cc Micro-Sprint division. Keller’s fourth place finish helped him
clinch the 270cc Micro-Sprint title for the year.

For the twelfth time this season, Warren Stradley was the victor in
the 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature. With the win in the 25-lap race,
Stradley wrapped up his sixth championship in the division. Justin
Dunn completed the race in second. Kate Raively, Art Knapp and Scott
Dunn completed the top five.

In the 25-lap open Modified race on the quarter mile speedway, Lou
Cicconi, driving a Mike Iles owned small block Modified, led every
step of the way to claim the checkered flag. Brett Ballard worked his
way back from an opening lap spin to finish in second place. Neal
Williams held off Jesse Hill in a photo finish for third place. Fifth
place was taken by Ron Roberts. Cicconi and Richie Pratt, Jr. were the
heat race victors.

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (September 11, 2011) – On Soccer Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Ryan Anderson collected the checkered flag in the Bridgeport Modified feature. The Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car victor was Pat Conaway.

Ryan Anderson took charge of the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature as the green flag waved with Jesse Hill, Sean Gunther, Ron Roberts and Neal Williams in pursuit. With Anderson beginning to pull away, Gunther motored into second on lap 3 and Roberts escalated into third on the following tour. With ten laps recorded, Anderson had extended his advantage to a full straightaway over Gunther. With the leader in the middle of heavy lap traffic, John Bilofsky’s flat tire caused he first caution of the event on lap 15. When action got back underway, Anderson remained in control with Gunther, Roberts,Williams and Ryan Watt in the hunt. The second and final yellow flag of the ace occurred on lap 17 due to a multi-car incident. Once again, Anderson maintained his lead as racing resumed. In the final moments of the contest, Anderson reestablished his big lead and cruised to his first victory of the season. Gunther’s strong run resulted in a second place finish. Roberts wound up in third with Watt fourth and Williams fifth.
The Bridgeport Modified heat winners were Watt,Williams and Gunther.

In the 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race, Pat Conaway tallied his eighth victory of the year. Terry Griffin paced the field for the opening five circuits before Jeremy Doerr scooted to the front. Doerr’s lead and night came to end on lap 8 as he lost a tire. Conaway bolted by Griffin on the ensuing restart and he remained on top for his second consecutive win. Second place went to Griffin. Tommy Beamer, Bob Hopely and Jeff Dirkes completed the top five.

After a pre-race pit area incident involving TSRS Sprint Car team members, the TSRS Sprint Car drivers voted to cancel their scheduled race.

WATSON CHALKS UP HIS SECOND WIN OF THE SEASON AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (September 4, 2011) – On Back to School Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Jordan Watson chalked up his second Bridgeport Modified win of the season. In the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car feature, Pat Conaway was the victor. Mike Lyons took top honors in the 358 Sportsman race.

In the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature, Jesse Hill grabbed the early lead with Corey Andersen, Chad James, Jordan Watson and Brett Kressley in tow. By the third circuit, Watson had moved into second place as Hill had a comfortable early advantage. Also on lap 3, the first yellow flag of the race waved as Justin Hoffman stopped in turn three. When action got back  underway, Hill and Watson remained in order with James gaining third. With eight laps in the books, Watson was cutting into Hill’s lead and the two became locked into a battle for the lead. Hill and Watson were side by side over the next few laps until Watson took over the top spot on lap 11. Quickly, Watson began to pull away from Hill and the rest of the pack. With ten laps to go, Watson had built up a half-straightaway lead. Watson’s sizeable margin disappeared on lap 18 as Travis Hill was slowing down due to a left rear flat. On the restart, Watson maintained his lead with James gaining second and Ryan Watt scooting into third. For the remainder of the event, Watson went unchallenged to gain his second feature win of the season. Second place went to James. Watt finished in third after starting the race in eleventh. Brett Kressley and Neal Williams completed the top five. Neal Williams and Jordan Watson won the Bridgeport Modified heat races.

In the entertaining 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car feature, Pat Conaway regained the lead in the final laps to capture his seventh feature victory of the season. Rick Broschard led the opening three circuits until Conaway zipped into the lead. At the halfway point, Broschard was reeling in Conaway and became locked on the leader’s bumper with five to go. Broschard reclaimed the top spot on lap 11. One tour later, Broschard bobbled out of the exit of turn two and Conaway took back the lead. Conaway successfully navigated lap traffic in the final two circuits to secure the win. With Broschard taking second, Jeremy Doerr claimed third. Terry Griffin and Bill Miller finished fourth and fifth respectively.

Mike Lyons became a four-time winner by capturing the 20-lap race for the 358 Sportsman. Rick Wegner took control at the start of the competition. On a lap 7 restart, Lyons outgunned Wegner to gain the lead. Lyons guided the field in the remaining laps for the victory. Wegner held on for second. Dave Dissinger, Dan Lorenzi and Bruce Davis filled out the top five.

RAIN SHELVES SATURDAY, AUGUST 13 PROGRAM. BIG BLOCK MODIFIEDS ADDED TO SUPER LATE MODEL SPECTACULAR AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (August 13, 2011) – An early afternoon brief downpour and a weather outlook of additional rain prompted Bridgeport Speedway management to shelve the race program slated for Saturday, August 13.

With the rainout, the Super Late Model Spectacular event scheduled for Thursday, August 18 will now be enhanced. The Big Block Modifieds, which were to race on Saturday’s cancelled card, have been added to this Thursday’s lineup. The victor of the 25-lap Big Block Modified main event will receive $1200 if more than thirty cars are entered. If the field of Big Block Modifieds is less than thirty, the winner’s share will receive $1000.

This Thursday’s mid-week special will showcase the powerful and popular Super Late Models. Following timed hot laps, a 25-lap main Super Late Model event will pay $3000 to win, $1000 for fifth and $200 to take the green. A star-studded lineup is expected to included Ricky Elliott, Kenny Pettyjohn, Jim Bernheisel, Brandon Bernheisel, Hal  Browning, Lou Johnson, Staci Warrington, Mark Byram, Al Cheney, Dale Lingo, Andrew Mullins, Rob Schirmer, Matt Murphy and Tim Murphy

Also on Thursday, the Bridgeport Modifieds will be performing in double duty with two strong payouts available for competitors. The postponed 25-lap feature from the Wingate Classic in June will reward the victor with $2500 in cash. In addition, a complete program of qualifying will occur with another 25-lap finale that will pay $1500 to win with more than thirty entrants or $1200 to win with thirty or less competitors. Bridgeport Modified competitors may use any track stamped American Racer tires that conform to the current Bridgeport  Speedway permitted compounds.

After joining the 600cc Micro-Sprint field just a few weeks ago, Tom Fraschetta led very circuit to win his first career 20-lap feature. Fraschetta, who returned to racing after  an eight year absence, put his Dave Orange powered 600cc Micro-Sprint to the front at the start. By the halfway point, Fraschetta was using his past racing experience to wisely weave his way through lap traffic. In the second half of the race, three caution periods, including one on the final lap, forced the field directly behind Fraschetta. After each restart, Fraschetta was able to maintain his advantage to gain the win. Coming from eleventh pace on the starting grid, Lee Nardelli finished in second place with third going to Rick Stief. Bob Devault came from eighteenth to come home in fourth. Fifth place was taken by Eric Brobst. Tom Fraschetta, Carl Locuson and Richie Keller each picked up a 600cc Micro-Sprint heat win. Bob DeVault took the checkered flag in the consolation race.

For the third time this season, Richie Keller won the 20-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint feature. Keller inherited the lead on lap 6 after an accident eliminated the top two of Nandi Palmai and Jon Keller. Second place went to John Blanda. Dave Brown, RJ Maryari and Jonathan John completed the top five. The 270cc Micro-Sprint qualifying events were won by Nandi Palmai and Jon Keller.

Scott Dunn was the victor in the 20-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car race. Setting the pace for the entire distance, Dunn became a first time winner at Bridgeport Speedway. Brian Crisman finished second. Rounding out the top five was Justin Dunn, John Crosby and Kate Raively. Crisman was victorious in the heat race.

Andrew Locuson took the lead at the start and led all 20 laps to win his second 600cc Micro-Sprint feature of the year. The former 270cc Micro-Sprint driver jumped to the ront to set the early pace over Bryant Davis and Chris Panczner.

With six laps remaining, the leader was in the midst of heavy lap traffic when the final caution came out for a spin by Panczner. With a clear racetrack, Andrew Locuson was unchallenged in the latter stages of the event to cross the finish line ahead of Davis, DeVault, Jim Tippin and Lee Nardelli. The 600cc Micro-Sprint qualifying events were won by Andrew Locuson, Chris Panczner and Bryant Davis. Mike Rutherford bested the field in the consolation race.

WATT CASHES IN AGAIN AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 31, 2011) – On Kid’s Money Scramble and Deptford Township Night, Ryan Watt won the Bridgeport Modified feature for the fourth time this season. The Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race was won by Jeremy Doerr.

The original start of the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature was blemished by a multi-car incident that saw Ryan Wozunk’s car flip at the beginning of turn three. When green flag racing did get underway, Frank Dorry, Jr. scrambled to the front with Brett Kressley, Tom Miller, Corey Andersen and Chad James in tow. By lap 7, Dorry was pulling away from the field with Andersen in second and James in third. Ryan Watt, who started the event in tenth place, was continuing his way to the front by motoring into fourth with nine circuits completed. By the midway point, Dorry had built up a full straightaway advantage over Andersen with James and Watt engaged in a tight tussle for third place. On lap 14, Watt shifted by James to gain third. Two tours later, Watt became engaged with Andersen in a battle for the runner-up spot. On lap 20 just as Watt had advanced into second, Dorry’s big lead went away as the caution flew for a spin by Don Cogdill, III. After one misfired restart due to a tangle between Steve Durand and Sean Gunther, Watt headed the group of Andersen, James, Neal Williams and Brett Ballard by Dorry to assume the lead on lap 21. A flat tire caused Dorry to slow down on the dirt oval one revolution later for the final caution of the event. Watt maintained his edge when racing continued and led the remaining laps for his fourth checkered flag of the year. Williams gained two spots off the last restart and wound up in second. James placed third with Ballard in fourth and Andersen in fifth. The winners in the heat races were Chad James, Brett Kressley and Sean Gunther. Don Cogdill, III took the checkered flag in the consolation event.

After taking the lead on the seventh lap, Jeremy Doerr held off Pat Conaway for his second 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car win in 2011. After Joe Robinson and Richie Burns, Jr. paced the field for one lap each, Terry Griffin became the new leader on the third tour. With five laps completed, Conaway took over the top spot with the
fourteenth place starting Doerr progressing into the runner-up position on lap 6. After Doerr secured the lead, Conaway remained in close pursuit. Griffin, Nick Gargiulo and Burns completed the top five.

THOMAS ENDS DROUGHT AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 30, 2011)  Bill Thomas won the 600cc Micro-Sprint feature on Bridgeport Speedway’s quarter mile to end his winless drought of over two years. Charlie Lamanna collected his third victory of the year in the 270cc Micro-Sprint Class. The 4-Cylinder Stock Car event went to Warren Stradley.

After the original start of the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint feature was scrubbed due to a multi-car incident, Bryant Davis drove out to the front and was followed by Bill Thomas, Chris Locuson, Stephen Kemery and Ryan Stillwagon. After two more cautions in the first five laps, Davis was able to maintain his front running position over the pack following the ensuing restarts. By the time the contest reached the midway point, Davis had built a half straightaway advantage over Thomas while closing in on lap traffic. On lap 14, Davis was trying to put a slower moving car a lap down when he clipped the inside wall in turn two and spun out. After inheriting the lead due to the Davis  incident, Thomas set the pace for the remainder of the race to post his first win of the year and he returned to victory lane for the first time since May 2009. Second place was captured by Kemery with Bob DeVault finishing in third after starting the race in ninth. Chris Locuson and Lee Nardelli completed the top five. The heat winners in  the 600cc Micro-Sprint division were Bryant Davis, Chris Locuson and Lee Nardelli. The consolation race was won by Eric Brobst.

In the 20-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint main event, Charlie Lamanna grabbed the lead on the eleventh circuit and went onto claim his third checkered flag of the year. After leading the opening ten laps, RJ Magyari held off Richie Keller to finish a career best second.

BRACALL SCORCHES THE FIELD AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July, 23 2011) - On a hot summer night, Steve Bracall scorched the competition to win his second 600cc Micro-Sprint feature of the year. Megan Kay snared her first career checkered flag in the 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. The 4-Cylinder Stock Car race was captured by Josh Lovett.

After the original start of the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint feature was aborted by Joe Kay’s flip, Steven Bracall took the lead on the opening lap and was followed by Eric Brobst and Luke Thomas. With one circuit completed, the red flag flew as Chris Panczner took a tumble following a multi-car tangle. When green flag racing resumed, the top three of Bracall, Brobst and Thomas remained intact as Lee Nardelli shifted into fourth place. Nardelli continued his charge to the front as he moved past Thomas to gain third on lap 5 just before the caution appeared for a slowing Kevin Massey. Bracall maintained his edge over Brobst on the next restart but the yellow lights were illuminated on lap 7 for a spin by Dan Massey. Bracall remained in front as action got back underway again. A twirl by Jim Tippin slowed down the racing once more with ten tours completed. On this restart, Bracall beat back a very strong challenge by Brobst to narrowly keep his advantage. The final yellow of the contest occurred on lap 11 as several cars including Bryant Davis, Tyler DeVault and Andrew Locuson were involved in a skirmish. When the green flag waved for the final time, Bracall kept the upper hand over Brobst again. In the final five laps, Bracall was able to gain some breathing room and he crossed the finish line head of Brobst. Nardelli wound up in third with Thomas in fourth and Sam Locuson in fifth. The heat winners in the 600cc Micro-Sprint division were Steve Bracall, Eric Brobst and Bryant Davis.

Megan Kay held off Charlie Lamanna to score her first career victory in the 20-lap main event for the 270cc Micro-Sprints. Kay led all twenty laps with Lamanna applying pressure during several phases of the event including the final two circuits. Behind the top two of Kay and Lamanna, Ernie Miles completed the race in third. John Blanda and Jonathan John completed the top five. Kay was the victor in the qualifying event.

Josh Lovett made his return to Bridgeport Speedway worthwhile as he was victorious in the 20-lap feature for the 4-Cylinder Stock Cars. Racing for the first time this season at the quarter mile speedway, Lovett grabbed the lead from John Crosby on lap 7 and held off Warren Stradley in the final laps for the win. Blake Silvestein, Crosby and Art Knapp rounded out the top five. Stradley won the 4-Cylinder Stock Car heat race.

HOWARD TAKES HOME $6500 AFTER THE JAM IN JERSEY AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 21, 2011) – At the Jam in Jersey at Bridgeport Speedway, Duane Howard swept both Big Block Modified features and took home $6500 in winnings. Richie Pratt, Jr. was victorious in the Bridgeport Modified main event.

In the 25-lap Jam in Jersey Big Block Modified feature, Ryan Watt outgunned the pack to grab the early lead and was initially pursued by Chad James, Billy Pauch Sr., Jimmy Horton and Duane Howard. By the second circuit, James was closing in on Watt with Howard climbing past Horton to gain fourth. After a good tussle for the top spot, James was scored as the new leader of the race with three tours recorded. Howard continued his drive to the front and he reached second place by lap 5. Slowly, Howard began to close in on James. With the top two in heavy lap traffic on lap 10, Howard was able to navigate the slower cars with ease and shuffled by James to ascend to the top spot. Right after Howard grabbed the lead, the first caution event occurred on lap 10 as Pauch, Sr. slowed down on the track while running in third. On the ensuing restart, Howard maintained his lead with James, Watt and Wade Hendrickson in tow. The caution flag flew again on lap 11 when Larry Solomon and G.R. Smith tangled near the starter stand. When action got back underway, James tried valiantly to regain the lead but Howard held on as Hendrickson grabbed third and Rick Laubach motored into fourth. With ten laps remaining, Howard was separating himself from his foes when the final yellow flag of the contest waved for Scott Hulmes. On the single file restart, Howard maintained his edge. As the laps clicked off, Howard began to pull away again from the field. With the checkered flag out, it was Howard comfortably in front of James.  Hendrickson fought off a late race challenge by Laubach to wind up in third. With Laubach taking fourth, Richie Pratt, Jr. placed fifth. Rick Laubach, Chad James and Duane Howard each picked up a victory in the heat races for the Big Block Modifieds.

After the original start of the 25-lap George Wingate Big Block feature was marred by a multi-car incident, Duane Howard blasted out to the front at the onset of the race with Jimmy Horton settling into second. On the second circuit, a flat on Larry Solomon’s ride brought out the yellow flag. When racing began again, the top two of Howard and Horton stayed intact with Rick Laubach wheeling into third. By the seventh trip of the outer dirt oval, Howard was clearly the dominant car. At the halfway point, Howard’s advantage over Horton was a full straightaway. Over the second half of the competition, Howard kept a firm hold of the lead and guided the field across the finish line to score his second win of the evening. With the two wins, Howard claimed the $1000 bonus for being the victor in both features and collected a total of $6500 for his accomplishments. Second place went to Horton and third was taken by Laubach. Ryan Watt and Wade Hendrickson finished in fourth and fifth respectively.

Richie Pratt, Jr. hopped into teammate Brett Ballard’s back-up Bridgeport Modified and triumphed in the 25-lap Jam in Jersey Bridgeport Modified main event. Pratt, Jr. led every step of the way and was rewarded with the winner’s check worth $1000. After starting the race in fourteenth, Ryan Watt finished in second place. Neal Williams, Travis Hill and Brett Ballard completed the top five. The Bridgeport Modified qualifying events were won by Dan Cogdill, Jr. and Travis Hill.

WITTE RIDES BACK TO BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY’S VICTORY LANE FOR HIS SECOND WIN OF THE YEAR

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 17, 2011) – On Bike Nike at Bridgeport Speedway, Dave Witte rode back into victory lane after capturing the Bridgeport Modified feature. Jeff Schall won the TSRS Sprint Car main event while Pat Conway took the checkered flag in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race.

After the original start of the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature was scrubbed by a spin in the first turn, Tom Miller jumped out to the lead over Dave Witte, Dan Cogdill, Jr., Brett Kressley and Steve Durand. Witte began to track down Miller and took over the top spot on lap 3. While Witte was increasing his advantage, Kressley was motoring into third place on lap  with Ryan Watt advancing into fourth after starting the event in twelfth. Witte’s lead was half the length of the frontstretch when the yellow flag flew on the seventh circuit for a flat on Ryan Wozunk’s car. As action got back underway, Watt flew by Miller and Kressely to gain the runner-up spot. With ten laps in the books, the top two of Witte and Watt began to move away from the pack and Watt became glued onto Witte’s bumper on lap 12. On the next circuit, Watt used the outside lane and exited the second corner with the lead. Quickly, Watt began to pull away from the field and had a comfortable margin over the field with only ten laps remaining. Watt’s secure lead evaporated on a lap 18 caution for a slowing Chuck Buchman. Using the outside pole on the ensuing restart, Watt’s car abruptly slowed down on the backstretch due to a fuel pump problem and Witte reassumed the lead over Kressley and Cogdill, Jr. Once in front, Witte went unchallenged in the final laps as he collected his second victory of the year. The runner-up spot was claimed by Kressley with Cogdill, Jr. taking home a season best third place finish. Ron Roberts wound up in fourth after starting sixteenth and Jordan Watson ompleted the race in fifth. The Bridgeport Modified heat winners were Travis Hill, Chuck  Buchman and Jordan Watson.

In the entertaining 20-lap TSRS Sprint Car main event, Jeff Schall topped the field to snare his first win in the series. Schall grabbed the lead on the nineteenth circuit of the big clay oval after a side by side battle with Chuck Palmucci. After leading the opening eighteen laps, Palmucci finished in second place. Kyle Reinhart, Bob DeVault and Jimmy Carpenter rounded out the top five. Chris Allen, Jr. and Bruce Kindberg were victors in the TSRS Sprint Car qualifying events.

Pat Conaway won his sixth Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race of the year in thrilling fashion. Conaway took over the lead from Jeremy Doerr on the seventh circuit of the 15-lap feature. Conaway and Doerr remained in tight quarters throughout the final half of the race. On lap 14, Conaway’s car jumped out of gear and he nearly lost the lead to Doerr. Back under full power, Conaway was able to hold off Doerr at the finish line by only a tenth of a second. Third place went to Terry Griffin with Ralph Gargiulo in fourth and Richie Burns, Jr taking fifth.

KELLER CAPTURES A 600CC MICRO-SPRINT VICTORY AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 16, 2011) - Richie Keller captured the checkered flag in the 600cc Micro-Sprint main event at Bridgeport Speedway. The 270cc Micro-Sprint contest was taken by Charlie Lamanna with Warren Stradley topping the field in the 4-Cylinder Stock Car division.

In the 20-lap feature for the 600cc Micro-Sprints, Richie Keller sprinted out from his pole starting spot to lead the opening lap over Joe Kay, Jermain Godshall and Shane Lewis. The caution flag came out on the first lap due to a multi-car tangle in turn one. When action got back underway, it was Keller setting the pace over Kay with Lewis motoring into third. With five circuits recorded, Keller had a half straightaway lead over his rivals. On lap 8 with the leader in lap traffic, Bryant Davis began to slow down along the backstretch and the yellow flag appeared. The ensuing restart was scrubbed after Bob DeVault clipped the inside wall in turn four and several cars were collected in the incident. When green flag racing did resume, Keller was still in front with Lewis gaining second and Sam Locuson scooting into third. Lewis was reeling in Keller when Mark Landwher’s spin brought out the final yellow of the event on  lap 13. On the restart, Keller kept his advantage over Lewis and Sam Locuson. With only three laps remaining, Keller’s lead over Lewis was diminishing. Over the final tours, Keller was able to hold on and he beat Lewis to the finish line by one full car length. Sam Locuson wound up in third. After starting sixteenth, Lee Nardell completed the race in fourth place with fifth going to Kay. Richie Keller, Stephen Kemery and Jermain Godshall were the 600cc Micro-Sprint heat race winners.

For the second time this year, Charlie Lamanna won the 20-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. Lamanna became the leader of the race on lap 2 after a mechanical failure forced Megan Kay to the pits. Erika Palmai finished second. Ernie Miles, Richie Keller and Dave Nelson rounded out the top five. The qualifying races were won by Megan Kay and Ernie Miles.

In the 20-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car race, Warren Stradley rolled to his eighth win of the year. Stradley, the heat race winner, dominated the race after securing the lead from John Crosby on the fifth circuit. With Crosby in second, Kate Raively wound up in third. Art Knapp and Bob Hartman rounded out the finishers.

GRASSO, WATT, CONAWAY AND LYONS NET WINS AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (July 10, 2011) – On Camera and Autograph Night at Bridgeport Speedway, JJ Grasso took the checkered flag in the Rislone URC Sprint Car main event. Ryan Watt was the victor in the Bridgeport Modified feature race. The Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race was won by Pat Conaway while Mike Lyons grabbed top honors in the 358 Sportsman contest.

At the start of the 25-lap Rislone URC Sprint Car main event, Rory Janney took the lead with Jonathan Swanson and JJ Grasso in his tracks. Grasso took over the runner-up spot on the second circuit and became the leader of the race on lap 3. One tour later, the caution flag came out as Swanson and Dave Ely tangled in the first corner. Following the ensuing restart, Randy West and Robbie Stillwagon, the third and fourth place runners, made contact in turn four and the red lights illuminated as West flipped. After an Ed Aiken spin, action did finally resume with Grasso continuing to set the pace over Curt Michael, Janney and Josh Weller. By the halfway mark, Grasso had a very comfortable advantage over Michael, Weller, Janney and Mark Bitner. On lap 15, smoke appeared from Michael’s ride and he pulled off into the infield. As Grasso was continuing to set a torrid pace, Ely was still roaring back from his earlier spin and he motored into third on lap 18. With the top three of Grasso, Weller and Ely in the midst of lap traffic with less than five laps to go, Ely was closing in on Weller. Ely took over second on lap 23 with Weller fighting back to gain the spot on the next revolution. As the checkered flag waved, Grasso crossed the finish line first for his third Rislone URC Sprint
Car win of the year. Ely wrestled second place away from Weller on the last lap. Janney and Bitner completed the top five. The Rislone URC  Sprint Car qualifying events were won by Ed Aiken, Chris Coyle and Dave Ely.

After the original start of the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature was scuttled by a caution flag, Jack Hartnett became the leader when action did get underway with Tom Miller, Dave Witte, Dan Cogdill, Sr. and Ron Roberts in the chase. Quickly, Hartnett began to pull away from the pack with positional battles happening throughout the rest of  the field. On lap 5, the red flag was displayed as Witte, Cogdill, Sr. and Chad James were involved in a hard-hitting accident in turn four. When racing resumed, Hartnett was still on top and was followed by
Roberts, Jordan Watson, Miller and Ryan Watt. With eight laps recorded, the yellow lights lit up the speedway for Keith Weber and Steve Durand. After Kenny Golden waved the green flag again, Watt zipped his way by three cars and into second place behind Hartnett. Only two laps were completed before another caution period occurred for a spin by Weber in turn one. On the ensuing restart, Watt scurried around Hartnett to take over the top spot. A five car accident on lap 11 brought out the final yellow flag of the event. When the green lights illuminated, Watt remained in front with Hartnett and Roberts as his closest pursuers. As the laps clicked off, Watt was in firm control of the race and he went unchallenged the remaining distance to chalk up his third win of the season. Hartnett finished second after missing a few weeks of racing. Roberts celebrated his birthday with a third place finish. The top five was rounded out by Watson and Travis Hill. Watt, Jesse Hill and Dan Cogdill, Sr. were winners in the Bridgeport Modified heat races.

Pat Conaway notched his fifth Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car win of the season. Conaway led all fifteen laps after starting the race from fifth place. Nick Gargiulo came back from an early race incident to finish in second. Ken Watson, Jr. was third with Andy Whittaker taking fourth. Newcomer Richie Burns, Jr. ran a strong race to finish fifth.

After taking over the lead over on the fourth tour of the speedway from Rick Wegner, Mike Lyons rolled to his third consecutive victory in the 15-lap 358 Sportsman feature. Craig Whitmoyer came home in second while Dave Dissinger wound up in third. Fourth place was taken by Wegner and veteran Roy Wiest crossed the finish line in fifth.

GUNTHER GETS HIS SECOND WIN OF THE YEAR AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 26, 2011) - On 70’s Night, Sean Gunther won the Bridgeport Modified feature for the second time this year. The TSRS Sprint Car main event was taken by John Wyers. Terry Griffin was the victor in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race.

Tom Miller took advantage of his pole starting spot and grabbed the lead at the start of 25-lap feature for the Bridgeport Modifieds. As many positional battles were occurring throughout  the field behind the leader, Corey Andersen began to close in on Miller with five laps in the books and Sean Gunther had sliced his way into third on lap 6. On lap 7, Miller pulled into the infield with an unknown mechanical issue and Andersen became the new top man. Slowly but surely, Andersen began to pull away from the field while Ryan Watt was moving into contention as he scurried into third place with nine circuits completed. A tussle for the runner-up position between Gunther and Watt was just heating up when a spin on lap 10 by Brett Ballard caused the yellow lights to illuminate. On the restart with the leader Andersen choosing the outside pole, Gunther was able to get a good jump as the green flag flew and took over the lead as Watt followed to gain second place. With only ten laps remaining, the top two were in tight quarters and began to break away from the pack. Another spin by Ballard initiated
the second caution period of the event on lap 16. When the green flag waved again, Watt seemed to have gained the lead but a tangle between Ballard and Weber occurred before the lap was scored. On the ensuing restart, Gunther was able to repel Watt’s challenge to remain on top. After back to back cautions on lap 17, the top three of Gunther, Watt and Andersen was still intact with Chad James advancing into fourth. With Watt still eyeing Gunther, the final yellow flag of the contest flew on lap 20 as a result of a tangle between Neal Williams and Keith Dolan. On the final resumption of racing, Gunther kept his edge over Watt and Andersen. As the final laps clicked off, Gunther was able to cross the finish line ahead of Watt by less than a second. James was able to scoot by Andersen with only two tours remaining to pick up a third place finish. With Anderson in fourth, Frank Dorry, Jr. took home a fifth place finish. Ballard, Miller and Dorry, Jr. were the heat race winners with Matt Budd scoring the victory in the consolation race.

John Wyers used a sweeping last lap pass to win the 20-lap TSRS Sprint Car main event. Ryan Maisenhalter, who had led from the start, began to approach lap traffic with only four circuits remaining and Wyers was able to close in on the leader. As the white flag waved, Wyers had Maisenhalter in his crosshairs and took over the lead as the top two exited turn four. Chuck Palmucci finished in third and was followed by Bob DeVault and Mike Esposito. The TSRS Sprint Car qualifying events were won by Palmucci, Wyers and Chris Allen.

In the 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock car race, Terry Griffin earned his first career checkered flag. Bob Dooley set the pace for the first three laps before Griffin took over and led the remaining distance. With Dooley taking second, newcomer Ralph Gargiulo wound up in third. Andy Whittaker and Russell Wurst completed the top five.

LOCUSON AND JOHN EARN FIRST WINS AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 25, 2011) – On a beautiful summer evening at Bridgeport Speedway, Carl Locuson earned his first victory in the 600cc Micro-Sprint class. In the 270cc Micro-Sprint race, Jonathan John collected career win number one. Warren Stradley continued his winning ways by taking home the checkered flag in the 4-Cylinder Stock
Car class.

In the 600cc Micro-Sprint main event, Carl Locuson took advantage of his pole starting position and grabbed the lead with Chris Panczner and Eric Brobst in tow. With six circuits completed in the 20-lap race, Locuson was just beginning to stretch out his lead when the yellow flag flew for Rick Stief who lost a wheel and came to a stop on the outside of turn three. When action resumed, Locuson kept his lead with Bob DeVault climbing into fourth after starting the race in ninth. At the halfway point, Locuson was building up his lead over Panczner while Brobst and DeVault were dueling for third. After a multi-lap tussled, DeVault motored into third on lap 13. As the final laps clicked off, Locuson continued his steady pace to grab the win. DeVault used a last lap pass to gain the runner-up spot over Panczner. Brobst and Chris Locuson completed the top five. Panczner, Carl Locuson and Brobst each snared a heat win in the 600cc Micro-Sprint division.

Jonathan John snared his first ever win in the 20-lap Micro-Sprint feature. After starting from the pole, John led every tour of the non-stop race on the quarter mile speedway. Justin Stillwagon finished second after John Blanda clipped the inside wall in turn two on the last lap. With Blanda taking third, Richie Keller and Brian Morrill rounded out the top five. The qualifying events were won by Blanda and John.

After winning the 4-Cylinder Stock Car heat race, Warren Stradley put on a dominating performance in taking the 20-lap main event for the seventh time this season. Second place went to John Crosby with Scott Hulmes finishing in third. Filling out the top five was Justin Dunn and Art Knapp.

WATSON WHEELS INTO VICTORY LANE AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 12, 2011) – On Law Enforcement Night, Jordan Watson wheeled into victory lane after winning the Bridgeport Modified feature. The ARDC Midget main event was won by Ryan Smith. Ryan Wozunk closed out the Rookie series with a victory. Pat Conaway notched another feature win in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock car division.

At the start of the 25-lap feature for the Bridgeport Modifieds, Mike Cogdill scurried to the lead with Larry Lippincott, Corey Andersen and Chad James in the hunt. On the second revolution of the big 5/8th mile speedway, Lippincott passed Cogdill to gain the top spot. With Lippincott looking to distance himself from his rivals, Jordan Watson was slicing his way towards the front as he took over third on lap 4 and set his eyes on Cogdill for second. On lap 8, Watson had just taken over the runner-up position when the yellow flag waved for a multi-car scramble in turn four. When action got back underway, Lippincott held off Watson to maintain the lead with James climbing up to third. After back to back cautions on laps 10 and 11, Lippincott remained on top as green flag racing returned with Watson and James dueling for second over numerous laps. On lap 14, another caution period occurred as several cars tangled. Also, track officials warned Lippincott about jumping the restart through in-car communications. Before the green lights flickered on, Lippincott hit the gas pedal and the yellow lights illuminated quickly for the final time. As a penalty for the false start, Lippincott was moved back to third place by management and Watson inherited the lead. When racing resumed, Watson kept the lead and ran away from his foes in the final eleven tours to claim his first win of the year. James finished in second with Lippincott holding onto third. Ron Roberts went home with a fourth place result. Travis Hill came back from an opening lap incident to finish in fifth. The winners of the Bridgeport Modified heat races were Ryan Watt, Brett Ballard and James. Don Cogdill, III was victorious in the consolation event.

Ryan Smith grabbed his second ARDC Midget win of the year. In the 20-lap contest on the quarter mile speedway, rookie Keith McIntyre, Jr. led the opening twelve circuits of the race. After gaining second from Greg Fitzpatrick on lap 8, Smith began to apply heavy pressure on McIntyre, Jr. After several failed moves to gain the lead, Smith used the outer groove to sweep into the top spot on lap 13. Alex Bright came on strong at the end to finish in second place. PJ Gargiulo, the former Bridgeport Speedway Micro-Sprint racer, wound up in third
place. Drew Heistand and McIntyre, Jr. finished fourth and fifth respectively. The ARDC Midget heat races went to Fitzpatrick, Andrew Hannula and Drew Heistand.

In the double point finale for the Bridgeport Modified Rookies, Ryan Wozunk led from start to finish as he won his second race of the year. With a second place finish, Dan Cogdill, Jr. claimed the Rookie title for the year. Bradley Roberts finished in third place and was followed by Keith Dolan and Don Cogdill, III.

Pat Conway secured his fourth win of the year by taking the checkered flag in the 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car feature. Conaway took over the lead after Terry Griffin had set the pace for the opening five circuits. Griffin ran well to take the runner-up spot. Nick Gargiulo fought back from a spin on lap 6 to go home with a third place finish. Josh Denny and Andy Whittaker completed the top five.

ANDREW LOCUSON LOCKS UP FIRST 600CC MICRO-SPRINT WIN AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 11, 2011) - On the quarter mile speedway, Andrew Locuson won his first career 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. Richie Keller was victorious in the 250cc and 270cc Micro-Sprint races. The 4-Cylinder Stock Car contest was captured by Warren Stradley.

In the 20-lap main event for the 600cc Micro-Sprints, Eric Brobst grabbed the lead at the start and was followed by Jermain Godshall, Joe Kay, Andrew Locuson and Stephen Kemery. By lap 2, Locuson motored into third with Kemery shifting up to fourth. One lap later, Jim Tippin brought out the first caution as his ride came to a stop in the middle of turns three and four. When action got back underway, Brobst kept his edge with Locuson gaining the runner-up spot and Kemery elevating himself into third. As the race approached the halfway point, Locuson was inching closer to Brobst. On lap 11, the top two were just entering lap traffic. One circuit later, Charles Colbourn spun just in front of the leaders and Brobst was involved in the
incident. With Locuson as the new man in front, he held off Kemery and Bryant Davis as the race resumed. Bob DeVault, who had steadily migrated towards the front from his tenth place starting spot, scooted into third on lap 14. The yellow lights came on again during the seventeenth tour as Ryan Stillwagon and Joe Kay tangled on the backstretch. After one failed attempt to resume racing, Locuson kept his lead on the clean restart with DeVault bolting his way by Kemery for second. Just after Locuson received the two to go sign from starter Gary Buzby, the final yellow flag of the event appeared for a turn four spin by Chris Panczner. After the final restart, Locuson maintained his control of the race for the final two laps to win his
first career 600cc Micro-Sprint race. DeVault finished in second with Kemery in third. Davis and Lee Nardelli completed the top five. Qualifying events in the 600cc Micro-Sprint division were won by Andrew Locuson, Bill Thomas and Joe Kay. The consolation race was taken by Jim Tippin.

Richie Keller visited victory lane twice as he won the 250cc and 270cc Micro-Sprint races. In the 15- lap 250cc Micro-Sprint contest, the heat race winning Keller led from start to finish. Colin Milry and John Reuter followed Keller across the finish line. In the non-stop 20-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint feature, Ernie Miles grabbed the lead at the start with Keller in second. During the second half of the race, the advantage that Miles had on Keller began to diminish. With only three laps to go, Keller was glued to the bumper of Miles. As the top two
entered the final turn on the last lap, a slip by the leader allowed Keller to scoot beneath him and gain the narrow win. Nandai Palmai, John Blanda and Erika Palmai rounded out the top five. Keller and Miles were victorious in the 270cc Micro-Sprint heat races.

Warren Stradley won the 4-Cylinder Stock Car race for the sixth time this year. In the thrilling 20-lap affair, Scott Dunn set the pace for the opening four laps with Stradley and Bob Hartman in close pursuit. On lap 5, Stradley used a daring outside move to the gain the lead and he was unchallenged the rest of the way. Scott Dunn and Hartman waged a terrific battle for second throughout the final half of the race. Hartman gained the spot on lap 15 only to lose it to Dunn on the next circuit. Eventually, Hartman finished second after retaking the
position with two laps to go. Scott Dunn, Justin Dunn and Kate Raively filled out the top five. Stradley was the heat race victor.

BRETT KRESSLEY HOLDS ON FOR FIRST BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY WIN OF THE SEASON

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 5, 2011) - For the second time in six days, second generation modified driver Brett Kressley went home to Orefield, PA the victor, backing up his Sunday win at Georgetown (DE) Speedway by taking the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature event at the South Jersey 5/8th mile oval. Mike Lyons grabbed his second win of he season in the 358 Sportsman feature, while 2010 Outlaw Stock Champion Pat Conaway continued his dominance of the class charging to the win in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock main event.

The youth movement at Bridgeport Speedway continued, with 2011 Rookie contender Ryan Wozunk and 2010 Rookie Champion Matt Budd pacing the field to begin the Bridgeport Modified feature race. The two charged around the raceway for the first five laps in first and second place, until a turn two miscue caused Wozunk to spin, bringing out the first yellow of the race. Delaware’s Jordan Watson had moved into fourth place from his ninth starting spot, and on the restart used the outside groove to power his way into the lead through turn two. A
five-car pile up canceled out Jordan’s exciting move up behind him, causing a complete restart. With Budd leading the field to the green, Frank Dorry Jr. pushed his #31 to the outside of turn one to take the lead. Dorry held down the point for the next three laps, while Brett Kressley was now on the move, taking over the runner up spot on lap eight. One lap later Kressley moved into the lead as Dorry was suffering from mechanical problems, bringing out the yellow and pulling into the pits on lap ten. Kressley led the rest of the race, but never had a moment to relax as Jordan Watson never let the leader out of his sights, pulling along side the leader numerous times for the rest of the way. With Starter Ken Golden waving the double-checkered flags, the top three of Kressley, Watson, and Chad James crossed the finish line nose to tail, with Travis Hill and Budd rounding out the top five. Kressley, Brett Ballard, and Budd won the Bridgeport Modified qualifying heat races.

Blasting out from his fourth starting spot, Mike Lyons charged to his second win of the season at Bridgeport Speedway, going wire to wire leading all twenty laps of the 358 Sportsman feature. Lap thirteen was unlucky for outside pole sitter Dave Dissinger, as the motor let go entering turn three. With heavy smoke coming from the car, Dissinger rolled to a stop on the front stretch, bringing out the caution flag. PA’s Craig Whitmoyer pulled into second place, coming out of turn four as Lyons was getting the five to go signal. Lyons had a comfortable lead at the finish, with Whitmoyer, Marc Herman, Bill Liedtka and veteran Roy Wiest filling out the top five.

The Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock 15 lap feature was an action filled event that saw Pat Conaway use every inch of the raceway to propel himself from his fourteenth starting spot to eventually get the win. The 2010 Champion charged his way to third place by lap four, powering his way on the outside lane past Terry Griffin in turns three and four. Rick Broschard was holding down first place in his #30 hile Conaway was chipping away at his lead, after taking over the runner up spot before halfway. With five to go, Broschard was still holding off Conaway’s charge, but one lap later the pace proved to be too much and the #30’s motor expired, relinquishing the lead to Conaway’s US1. Conaway’s teammate, Nick Garguilo took over second place from Jeremy Doerr with just two to go, and that’s how they finished, with Griffin and Ken Watson Jr. rounding out the top five.

BRACALL BREAKS INTO BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY’S VICTORY LANE

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (June 4, 2011)  On Unemployment Night, Steven Bracall collected his first career win in the 600cc Micro-Sprint feature at Bridgeport Speedway. In the 270cc Micro-print class, Ryan Stillwagon was the victor in the main event. Warren Stradley won the 4-Cylinder Stock Car event.

After the original start of the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint feature was called back, Steven Bracall hustled to the front when the green flag waved again and was followed by Stephen Kemery,Sam Locuson and Eric Brobst. On lap 3, Sam Locuson scurried by Kemery and set his sights on Bracall. Four laps later, Bracall and Locuson were in a tight battle for the top spot.Just as the top two were beginning to engage lap traffic, Ed Barber’s spin on the front stretch caused the yellow flag to appear on the ninth tour. On the restart, Bracall and Sam Locuson remained in order with Lee Nardelli jumping into third. Bracall and Locuson remained in tight quarters over the next few laps allowing Nardelli inch closer. As Gary Buzby gave the signal for five laps to go, Bracall had finally established some breathing room over Sam Locuson. With two laps remaining, the yellow lights illuminated when Chris Locuson’s ride stopped on the backstretch. On the restart, Nardelli immediately passed Sam Locuson to motor into second. With one lap remaining, Barber spun again in almost the identical spot and the caution flag waved for the final time. When action got back underway, Nardelli seemed to have a charge on the outside but shifted back low as he and Bracall entered the first turn. Bracall remained steady through the remainder of the final lap to hold off Nardelli to clinch his first career 600cc Micro-Sprint win at Bridgeport. Sam Locuson finished in third with Bob DeVault and Kemery completing the top five. Joe Kay, Andrew Locuson and Sam Locuson were victors in the 600cc Micro-Sprint heat races.

In the 20-lap main event for the 270cc Micro-Sprints, Justin Stillwagon blistered the field for his fourth checkered flag of the season. Jonathan John led the opening two circuits until Stillwagon passed John and Charlie Lamanna to get to the front. Once on the point, Stillwagon was unchallenged. Second place went to Lamanna. John finished in third with Megan Kay in fourth and Richie Keller taking fifth. Qualifying events in the 270cc Micro-Sprints were won by Lamanna and Dave Nelson.

Warren Stradley used a daring move in the 20-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature to gain his fifth victory of the year. Bob Hartman set the pace for the opening five laps with Stradley in second. On lap 6, Hartman and Stradley began to approach the slowing car of Art Knapp. As Hartman began to pass Knapp around the outside in turn four, Stradley squeezed between the retaining wall and Knapp to take over the lead. Although Hartman would remain fairly close throughout the remainder of the contest, he failed to muster any serious challenge to Stradley. With Hartman holding on for second, John Crosby finished in third. Kate Raively and Scott Dunn rounded out the top five. The heat race in the 4-Cylinder Stock Car class was won by Stradley.

GUNTHER IS TOP GUN AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 29, 2011) – On Armed Forces Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Sean Gunther topped the field to win the Bridgeport Modified feature. In the TSRS Sprint Car main event, Brittany Tresch was the winner. Jeremy Doerr was the victor in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race while Dan Cogdill, Jr. snared the checkered flag in the Rookie feature.

After two failed attempts, the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature got underway with Tom Miller in front and being chased by Brett Kressley, Sean Gunther and Ryan Watt. With the field in very tight formation and positions changing rapidly, Gunther took over the lead on the second circuit with Miller dropping back to second and Jordan Watson scooting into third. Brett Ballard got by Watson for third on the third circuit of the spacious 5/8th mile oval. With Gunther pulling away, a terrific five car battle between Miller, Ballard, Watt, Kressley and Watson for second ensued for several laps. On lap 6, Ballard gained the runner-up spot with Watt inching into third. As Gunther’s margin over the rest of the field was approaching a full straightaway, Watson’s ride stopped in turn one with nine laps recorded. On the restart, Gunther began to rebuild his lead with Ballard and Watt dueling for second place. The Ballard and Watt battle continued until the yellow came out on lap 15 for the slowing car of Ryan Woznuk. Action resumed for only one lap as Chad James made hard contact with the outside wall. After a failed restart, Gunther began to pull away again with Ballard and Watt resuming their positional tussle. On lap 18, Watt managed to get by Ballard for second place. As the final laps clicked off, Gunther maintained his advantage over the pack to clinch his sixth career victory at Bridgeport Speedway. Watt finished in second place with Ballard taking home a third place run. Steve Durand and Kressley finished fourth and fifth respectively. The heat winners in the Bridgeport Modified division were Watson, Ron Roberts and Dave Witte. Durand took the win in the consolation event.

Brittany Tresch led from wire-to-wire to claim the 20-lap non-stop TSRS Sprint Car main event. In her first start at Bridgeport, the young racer from Middletown, NY looked like a veteran in the final laps as she worked her way through lap traffic and held off John Wyers for the win. Behind Tresch and Wyers, Bob DeVault finished in third place. Mike Esposito and Christopher Allen, Jr. filled out the top five. Jeff Geiges and Allen, Jr. were victorious in the TSRS qualifying events.

Jeremy Doerr regained the lead on lap 12 and staved off Terry Griffin to win his sixth career Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car feature. In the 15-lap race, Pat Conaway came back from a late race spin to take third. Josh Denny and Jeff Dirkes completed the top five.

In the 6-lap Rookie race, Dan Cogdill, Jr. took over the lead from his cousin Don Cogdill, III on the second circuit to gain his third win of the season. Cogdill, III wound up in second and was followed by Keith Dolan, Ryan Wozunk, Bradley Roberts and Mike Hewko.

TIPPIN NABS HIS SECOND WIN OF THE YEAR AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 28, 2011) - Jim Tippin nabbed his second Bridgeport Speedway win of the year by topping the field in the wingless 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. Charlie Lamanna took home the checkered flag in the 270cc Micro-Sprint event. The 4-Cylinder Stock Car race was won in thrilling fashion by Ian Wray.

In the 20-lap feature for the wingless 600 Micro-Sprints, Jermain Godshall grabbed the initial lead with Jim Tippin, Jeff Hartman and Ryan Stillwagon in tow. Godshall’s lead was eliminated when the yellow flag waved for Stephen Kemery’s spin on lap 3. On the restart, Godshall remained in front with Tippin moving alongside the leader. The top two battled side by side until Tippin motored by Godshall on lap 5. One tour later, Hartman advanced into the runner-up spot and pushed Godshall into third. The caution lights illuminated for the final time when Rob Vivonna looped his car on lap 7. As action got back underway, Tippin and Hartman remained in order with Stillwagon gaining third. Just past the halfway point, the two front runners were  distancing themselves from the pack. With less than five laps remaining, Hartman began to close in on Tippin. Tippin was able to fend off Hartman at the end to score his second win of the year. Shane  Lewis finished third in his first Bridgeport Speedway start of the year. Stillwagon and Godshall completed the top five. Tippin and Godshall were the heat race winners.

Charlie Lamanna led all 20 laps to capture his third career victory in the 270cc Micro-Sprint feature. Lamanna started third and was unchallenged during the event. Justin Stillwagon drove up from his  sixth starting spot to finish in second. With Erika Palmai finishing  third, Alex Swift was fourth and Craig Martin wound up in fifth. Erika  Palmai and Swift won the qualifying events for the 270cc Micro-Sprints.

In the 20-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature, Ian Wray collected his sixth career checkered flag. Newcomer Scott Dunn was the early race  leader until Bob Hartman took over on the second lap. With a large  lead, Hartman’s car began to slow down at the midway point and Wray  became the new man on the point on lap 11. Hartman’s car quickly came  back to full power and he regained the lead with six laps left. With  less than two to go, Hartman developed a flat on the left rear tire  and he began to slow down again. The charging Wray was able to slip by  Hartman on the final turn to gain the victory. Justin Dunn finished in  third place. John Crosby and Kate Raively rounded out the top five.  The heat races were won by Scott Dunn and Hartman.

HARTNETT SCORES A WIN AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 22, 2011) – On Little League Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Jack Hartnett scored the win in the Bridgeport Modified feature. In the ARDC Midget event, Alex Bright was the victor. Mike Lyons took the checkered flag in the 358 Sportsman race and Pat Conaway topped the field in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car event. The Rookie feature was claimed by Bradley Roberts.

In the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature, polesitter Dan Cogdill, Sr. led the opening lap and was followed by Ron Roberts, Ryan Anderson and Brett Kressley. Roberts wrestled the lead away from Cogdill, Sr. on the second circuit. One lap later, Jack Hartnett continued his march to the front as he advanced into third and began to stalk Cogdill, Sr. Both Hartnett and Kressley were able to motor by Cogdill, Sr. on lap 5 to gain second and third place respectively. Back up front, Roberts was opening up a comfortable margin over the field as the laps clicked off. Robert’s lead evaporated on lap 11 as Keith Dolan’s spin brought out the first caution of the event. When action got back underway after a failed restart attempt, Hartnett  sped around Roberts to take the lead with Chad James, Roberts, Kressley and Ryan Watt in tow. Watt slapped the outside wall in turn three on lap 12 and forced the yellow flag to be displayed again. Another attempt to get racing resumed was scrubbed as a multi-car scuffle occurred and Kressley’s night came to end. On the ensuing single file restart, Hartnett held off the hard charging James to remain on top. On lap 15, Hartnett remained in front after he and James made contact a few times while they were jostling for the frontrunner position. Two tours later, Travis Hill moved into contention as he swooped into third place. Just as Hill was inching in on the top two, Jordan Watson’s ride paused near the flagger stand on lap 18. When the green flag waved again, Hartnett still held the edge over James and Hill. Four more circuits were finalized before the yellow lights lit up for a slowing Chuck Buchman. Once more, Hartnett repelled a challenge by James to keep his advantage when racing returned. James remained close and was looking to gain the lead when Dolan spun again with only one lap remaining in the race. On the final restart, Hartnett remained steady and he crossed the finish line ahead of his rivals for his first win of the season. James fought off Hill to capture second. With Hill in third, Neal Williams finished fourth with teammate Brett Ballard taking fifth. Jack Hartnett, Ryan Watt and Neal Williams were victors in the Bridgeport Modified heat races. The consolation contest was won by Tom Miller.

Alex Bright took over the lead with two laps remaining to capture the 20-lap ARDC Midget main. In the caution plagued race, Dusty Heistand grabbed the lead at the onset and set the pace for the first fifteen tours. After a restart on lap 15, Heistand spun in turn two and several other cars were collected in the accident. Following this accident, Steven Drevicki inherited the lead with Bright advancing into second. After another yellow flag incident on lap 17, Bright scurried around Drevicki to take over the top spot. Brett Arndt finished in second place with third going to PJ Gargiulo. Shane Penny and Parker Evans completed the top five finishers. The ARDC Midget qualifying races were won by Shawn Jackson, Tim Buckwalter and Bright.

In the 15-lap Profomance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car feature, Pat Conaway survived battles with Jerry Ellingsworth and Nick Gargiulo to win his fortieth feature in the division. Second place went to Gargiulo. Russell Wurst wound up in third place. Andy Whittaker returned after breaking a motor on opening day to finish in fourth with Anthony DiBenedetto taking home fifth. Ellingsworth and Jeremy Doerr were winners in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock heat races.

Mike Lyons led wire-to-wire to win the 15-lap 358 Sportsman race. Teammate Marc Herman finished in the runner-up spot. Rocco Infante, who won the season’s opening race two weeks go, completed the event in third place. Craig Whitmoyer and Dave Dissinger rounded out the top five finishers.

Bradley Roberts led all six laps to claim his first Rookie race of the year. Roberts was followed by Don Cogdill, III, Keith Dolan, Dan Cogdill, Jr. and Ryan Wozunk.

FAST AND FURIOUS FRIDAY NIGHT RACING AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 20, 2011) - On and off rain showers throughout the day caused Bridgeport Speedway management to cancel the Fast and Furious Friday night program slated for Friday, May 20. The 2011 Fast and Furious Friday season on the quarter mile dirt oval resumes on May 27th with a special show.

A non-point race for wingless 600cc Micro-Sprints will headline the card. Also, the 270cc Micro-Sprints will be on the program and each driver in this class will receive fifty bonus points for attending the show.

CHRIS LOCUSON SNARES HIS FIRST 600CC MICRO-SPRINT VICTORY AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 14, 2011) – On Bridgeport Speedway’s quarter mile dirt oval, Chris Locuson snared his first victory in the 600cc Micro-Sprint class. In the 270cc Micro-Sprint  feature, Richie Keller was the winner. Warren Stradley claimed another checkered flag in the 4-Cylinder Stock Car division.

At the start of the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint feature, Jermain Godshall took the lead with Chris Locuson and Andrew Locuson in the chase. With three laps in the books and Chris Locuson beginning to reel in Godshall, the yellow flag was waved as Joe Kay’s car stopped in the second corner. After two failed restarts, Godshall maintained his lead and was followed by Chris Locuson, Ryan Stillwagon and Lee Nardelli. At the halfway point, Godshall held a half-straightaway lead over his rivals. Godshall’s comfortable advantage was wiped out on lap
12 due to a caution period for Bob DeVault’s spin. On the ensuing restart, Chris Locuson got underneath Godshall and exited out of turn two with the top spot. Fighting a tight race car on lap 13, Godshall lost control in turn two and the yellow lights illuminated again. When the green flag was displayed, Chris Locuson kept his lead with Stillwagon in second and Nardelli in third. Through the final quarter of the race, Chris Locuson inched away from his foes and crossed the finish line first over Stillwagon. With Nardelli in third, Bryant Davis and Nick Sapp completed the top five. The qualifying races were won by Andrew Locuson, Eddie Wagner and Chris Locuson.

Richie Keller chalked up his fourth career victory in the 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. RJ Magyari set the pace for the first six circuits of the 20-lap affair. On lap 7, Keller scooted by Magyari to ascend to the lead. John Blanda finished in second place after taking the position away from Magyari on lap 10. Charlie LaManna, Erika Palmai and Justin Stillwagon rounded out the top five. LaManna and Stillwagon were the heat race winners in the 270cc Micro-Sprint class.

Warren Stradley won his fourth 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature of the year. Bob Hartman, the heat race winner, finished in second after leading the first five laps of the race. Kate Raivley wound up in third and was followed by Art Knapp and Cheri LaClaire.

NOTES: Chris Locuson’s win marked the fifth different winner in five 600cc Micro-Sprint features this year. Track management has adjusted the Friday night schedule for the next two weeks. Friday, May 20 will be a regular winged point show for the 600cc Micro-Sprints. The following Friday will be an open tire, draw for position and non-point event for wingless 600cc Micro-Sprints. Also on May 27, the 270cc Micro-Sprints will be an open tire event with extra money on the line for competitors to be determined by a positional pill draw in the final five laps. A non-track regular in the 4-Cylinder division could win an extra $200 ($100 from Bridgeport Speedway and $100 from Black Flagged Racing) on May 20 if the competitor can beat Warren Stradley.

WITTE PEDALS TO A WIN AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 8, 2011) – On Mom’s Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Dave Witte wound up in victory lane after winning the Bridgeport Modified feature. In the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race, Nick Gargiulo was the victor. Rocco Infante won the 358 Sportsman event while Dan Cogdill, Jr. captured the Rookie race.

In the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature, Dave Witte grabbed the lead  at the start of the race with Matt Budd, Jack Hartnett, Neal Williams and Brett Kressley in the chase. With Witte edging away on lap 3,  Kressley slipped by Williams to gain fourth. Witte’s solid lead  evaporated on lap 6 when Jordan Watson’s spin brought out the first caution flag. When action resumed after an aborted restart, Witte was still the man to catch and was now followed by Kressley, Ryan Watt and Williams. Quickly, the top three of Witte, Kressley and Watt broke away from the field on lap 8. Four circuits later, Williams and Travis Hill joined them to create a five-car lead pack. On lap 15, Kressley and Watt tangled in the second corner after battling hard for the runner-up spot. Witte kept his top running position when racing got  back underway with Williams and Travis Hill tussling for the runner-up  pot. Travis Hill escalated to second on the eighteenth circuit with his older brother, Jesse Hill, gaining third. Also on lap 18, Watt’s ride stopped in turn two and flagger Kenny Golden waved the caution flag. Once again, Witte maintained his spot when green flag racing returned with Travis Hill and Jesse Hill trying to hold to off Williams. Williams got by Jesse Hill on lap 20 to motor into third.  Back at the top, Witte’s lead was being threatened as Travis Hill became glued to his bumper with three tours remaining. The veteran  Witte remained steady in the final stages to collect his first win of  the year. For Witte, the visit to victory lane was his first since August, 8, 1989. With Travis Hill taking second, Williams was third followed by Jesse Hill and Chuck Buchman. Heat races in the Bridgeport Modified class were won by Watson, Kressley and Watt. Dan Cogdill, Sr. won the consolation race.

Nick Gargiulo held off a hard charging Jeremy Doerr to win his second 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race of the year. Doerr set  the pace for the majority of the event until Gargiulo was able to take over on lap 13 while the top two were in lap traffic. Doerr reeled in Gargiulo during the final lap but was unable to regain the lead. Fast improving Jerry Ellingsworth wound up in third. Anthony DiBendetto completed the race in fourth and Russell Wurst was fifth.

In the 20-lap 358 Sportsman feature, Rocco Infante led the entire distance to snap up his third career win at Bridgeport Speedway. Craig Whitmoyer finished in second place with Dave Dissinger in third. Fourth went to Jack Hartnett and Mike Lyons took home fifth.

For the second week in a row, Dan Cogdill, Jr. was the winner of the Rookie race. Cogdill, Jr. led the final four laps after Brad Roberts led the first two of the 6-lap event.

TIPPIN IS TOPS AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 7, 2011) – At Bridgeport Speedway on the quarter mile track, Jim Tippin topped the field to take the 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. In the 270cc Micro-Sprint division, Ryan Stillwagon was the  victor in the main event. Warren Stradley captured the checkered flag in the 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature.

At the start of the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint feature, polesitter Jim Tippin scampered out to the front and was followed by Richie Keller, Steven Bracall and Carl Locuson. Just after Carl Locuson motored past Bracall to pick up third, the red flag came out on lap 2 as Marty Shurr rolled in turn three after losing a wheel. Tippin began to pull away on the post red flag restart with Keller, Carl Locuson, Rick Stief and Bracall in tow. On the eighth tour, Bracall’s ride began to slow and the caution flag was displayed to the competitors. When the green flag was shown, Tippin was able to keep his advantage over Keller. As the race entered the second half, Keller began to reel in Tippin. On lap 12 with Tippin in the low groove, Keller went high in
turn one but could not gain the lead. With five laps to go, Keller went back to the high side but Tippin still managed to keep the top spot. Keller remained on Tippin’s bumper when the white flag was shown with the leaders entering lap traffic. Tippin successfully migrated through the lap traffic to secure his second career win at Bridgeport Speedway. With Keller coming home in second, Carl Locuson finished in third. Stief and Ryan Stillwagon completed the top five. Keller, Carl Locuson and Tippin each won a 600cc Micro-Sprint heat race.

After taking over the top spot on lap 10, Justin Stillwagon survived a late race challenge to rack up his third win of the year in the 20-lap 270cc Micro-Sprint main event. Richie Keller set the pace for the first nine circuits before Stillwagon ascended to the lead. Charlie Lamanna moved by Keller for second place on lap 12. Lamanna inched closer to Stillwagon in the final laps but Stillwagon held on for the victory by three car lengths over Lamanna. Third place was taken by Keller. John Blanda won a side by side tussle with Dave Nelson on the final lap to finish in fourth. Keller was the victor in the 270cc Micro-Sprint qualifying race.

In the 15-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature, Warren Stradley took the lead on lap 2 from Kate Raively as he chalked up his third win of the year. Bob Hartman, the winner of the heat race, finished in second place. With Raively claiming third, Art Knapp was fourth and rookie Cheri LaClaire was fifth.

WATT SENDS HIS RIVALS PACKING ON SCOUT NIGHT AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (May 1, 2011) – On Scout Night at Bridgeport Speedway, Ryan Watt won his second consecutive Bridgeport Modified feature of the year. In the Tri-State RaceSaver(TSRS) main event, Christopher Allen, Jr. was the victor. Nick Gargiulo chalked up the win in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car contest with Dan Cogdill, Jr. taking the checkered flag in the Rookie race.

In the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature, Frank Dorry, Jr. darted out to the early lead with Ryan Watt, Chad James, and Travis Hill in pursuit. On lap 5, Watt began to reel in Dorry, Jr. but failed to gain the lead on the next circuit with a strong inside move. Watt continued to dog Dorry, Jr and finally ascended to the front on lap 9. Once on top of the field, Watt began to pull away with James gaining on Dorry, Jr. The first caution of the race occurred when an attempted pass of Dorry, Jr. by James went awry and sent both cars spinning into the infield between turns one and two. When action got back underway, Watt held off the challenge of Hill, now in second place, to keep his lead. After only two laps of green flag racing were completed, the yellow lights flickered again as Brett Ballard spun in the second corner. Watt fought off Hill and Dan Cogdill, Sr. to maintain his advantage and he quickly built up a sizablemargin over his foes. Neal Williams, the defending track champion, entered the fray as he motored by Cogdill, Sr. to take third on lap 13. Two tours later, Watt’s big lead dissipated when Ballard slowed on the track. When the green lights flickered on, Watt drew away from Hill and Williams with Jordan Watson advancing into fourth on lap 17. On lap 19, Ryan Anderson’s slowing car caused the yellow flag to re-appear. After one restart was scrubbed, Watt won another battle with Hill to retain the top spot. Williams scooted around Hill on lap 21 to gain the runner-up spot. On the following circuit, Watson swung by Hill to gain third. With only wo laps remaining and Watt firmly in control of the race, the red flag came out as Ryan Anderson’s car flipped in turn one. After one failed restart for Ron Roberts, Watt kept his lead and he pulled away from the field for the final two laps to secure his second win of the
year. Williams held off Watson in a good battle to secure second place. Hill wound up in fourth and Steve Durand took home a fifth place finish. Dave Damiano, James and Watt each won a Bridgeport Modified heat race. Jack Hartnett was victorious in the consolation contest.

Christopher Allen, Jr. led all twenty laps to win the TSRS Sprint Car main. John Wyers moved up four positions in the final five circuits to gain second. Jeff Schall was third followed by former ARDC Midget driver Stephanie Stephens and Bill Corsa. The race was marred by a hard crash by Dave Youtzy. On lap 7, the second place running Youtzy plowed into the outside wall on the exit of turn four after making contact with the inside retaining barrier. Fortunately, Youtzy was uninjured from the accident. The TSRS Sprint Car heats were taken by Stevens  and Wyers.

In the 15-lap Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car feature, Nick Gargiulo took over the lead from teammate Pat Conaway on lap 6 to capture his fourth career victory. Terry Griffin won  the battle for second place in the final five laps over Russell Wurst and Jeff Dirkes. Anthony DiBenedetto finished in fifth.

Dan Cogdill, Jr. led every step of the way to claim the 6-lap race for the Bridgeport Modified Rookies. Keith Dolan finished second with Don Cogdill, III coming in third. Ryan Wozunk and Shawn Weber completed the top five.

NOTES: In two Bridgeport Modified races this year, Watt has now won $2000 with a motor that cost approximately $3200. A strong turnout of children including many scouts participatedin the Easter Egg Hunt, which took place this week following the rainout from the previous Saturday.

HARTMAN AND STIEF SCORE WINS AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (April 30, 2011) - Jay Hartman and Rick Stief scored wins in the 600cc Micro-Sprint features at Bridgeport Speedway. In the 270 Micro-Sprint event, John Blanda  was the victor. Warren Stradley took home the checkered flag in the 4-Cylinder race while Richie Wilson triumphed in the Modified Lite race.

After a red flag incident scrubbed the original start, Jay Hartman bolted from his pole position to take the lead in the regularly scheduled 600cc Micro-Sprint feature with Bob DeVault and Kyle Reinhardt in the chase. Sam Locuson jumped into the fray as he advanced to third on lap 2. Locuson immediately began to pressure DeVault for second place and he eventually  passed DeVault to gain second on lap 7. Also on lap 7, Hartman’s pace was slowed down as the caution flag displayed for a slowing Dean Seeman. On the ensuing restart, Hartman kept his advantage with the Locuson and DeVault battle continuing directly behind him. After another red flag on lap 8, the top three of Hartman, Locuson and DeVault remained in order.  Just past the halfway point of the 20-lap affair, DeVault began to close in on Locuson for second and regained the spot with five tours remaining. DeVault was reeling in the leader when the final yellow  flag came out for Andrew Locuson’s spin on lap 17. When action got back underway, Hartman would face his stiffest challenge of the race. As the top two entered turn three  with DeVault on the inside, Hartman shut the door and kept his lead with only two laps remaining. When the checkered flag waved, it was Hartman in front to claim his first 600cc Micro-Sprint event at Bridgeport Speedway. DeVault wound up in second followed by Reinhardt, Sam Locuson and Bryant Davis. Qualifying events in the 600cc Micro-Sprints were won by Jay Hartman, Kyle Reinhardt, Bob DeVault and Ryan Wilson. The consolation race was taken by Stephen Kemery.

At the start of the postponed 600cc Micro-Sprint feature from Friday, April 22, polesitter Rick Stief grabbed the top spot with Sam Locuson in second and Luke Thomas in third. Quickly, Locuson and Thomas began a multi-lap tussle for second with Thomas grabbing the runner-up spot on lap 4. Two circuits later, the yellow lights illuminated for Ryan Stillwagon’s spin in turn four. Stief and Thomas retained their positions on the restart with Steve Bracall charging up into third on lap 7. Tyler DeVault, the opening day winner, wrestled third place from  Bracall on lap 12 just before Ryan Wilson’s spin brought out the second caution flag of the contest. After the green lights flickered on again, the top two of Stief and Thomas remained in order with Jim Tippin climbing up to third place on lap 14. A spin by Stephen Kemery brought out the final caution of the event with five laps remaining. When green flag racing got back underway, it was still Stief on top with Tippin challenging Thomas for second. With a brand new chassis for the 2011 season, Stief was able to snare his nineteenth career win at Bridgeport Speedway. Thomas repelled the advances of Tippin to secure second place. Tyler DeVault and Andrew Locuson completed the top five.

Following his win in the 270cc Micro-Sprint heat race, John Blanda continued his success by capturing the 20-lap main. Blanda led every step of the way and survived a late race restart to rack up his eighth career Bridgeport Speedway win. Second went to Justin Stillwagon with Richie Keller, RJ Magyari and Jonathan John rounding out the top five.

After missing last week’s racing, Warren Stradley returned to victory lane by leading every step of the way in the 20-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car feature race. Bob Hartman backed up last Friday’s win with a second place run. Filling out the top five finishers was Jay Sipple, Charles Hudson and Art Knapp. The heat race for the 4-Cylinder Stock Cars was won by Stradley.

Richie Wilson won the Modified Lite qualifying contest and the feature over Adam Weber.

NEW HANDICAPPING SYSTEM IMPLEMENTED FOR BRIDGEPORT MODIFIEDS

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (April 25, 2011) – As part of the new 2011 Bridgeport Modified division, track management has announced the implementation of a new handicapping system for this season. “We feel this will add additional excitement to our racing program,” stated Promoter Jessica James. “This new handicap system does benefit all drivers including our weekly competitors, semi-regulars and invaders.”

In the new system, heat race lineups will be set by a draw for position with a total of twelve drivers being handicapped for their starting spot in the feature event. Depending on the number of qualifying races, the twelve drivers will be determined by the top three or four finishers from each heat race. Also, the previous week feature winner will start no higher than twelfth.

As the new headlining class, the Bridgeport Modifieds are currently racing for a strong payout on a weekly basis based on the amount of cars in the pits. If the car count in the Bridgeport Modified class exceeds thirty, the feature winner receives $1,200. If the number of cars in the class is thirty or under, the victor of the feature will take home $1,000.

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.

STILLWAGON AND HARTMAN POST WINS BEFORE RAIN HALTS 600CC MICRO-SPRINT FEATURE AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (April 23, 2011) - On a chilly and damp night on Bridgeport Speedway’s quarter mile dirt oval, Justin Stillwagon won  the 270cc Micro-Sprint feature. The 4-Cylinder Stock Car event was  captured by Bob Hartman. Rain halted the 600cc Micro-Sprint feature  from being contested and this main will be completed on Friday, April  29.

In the 20-lap affair for the 270cc Micro-Sprints, John Blanda blasted  out from his outside pole position to take the lead with Justin  Stillwagon and Jonathan John in tow. For the first four circuits,  Stillwagon stalked Blanda closely. On lap 5 as the top two were about  to enter turn three, Stillwagon slipped below Blanda and became the  new leader. Quickly, Stillwagon began to pull away from the field.  With ten laps remaining, Stillwagon had a nearly a full straightaway  lead on Blanda. With Stillwagon enjoying a comfortable lead, John  began to reel in Blanda. On lap 19, Blanda’s ride suddenly slowed and  John advanced to second. When the checkered flag was waved, it was  Stillwagon in front for his second win in a row. John came home in  second followed by Kyle Newkirk and Blanda. Stillwagon was the victor  in the heat race.

At the drop of the green flag in the 15-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car  feature, Art Knapp grabbed the early advantage over Bob Hartman and  Kate Raively. Hartman, the winner of the qualifying race, rocketed  past Knapp on lap 4 to take over the top spot. Once in front, Hartman  set a blistering pace for the remainder of the race to claim his third  career win at Bridgeport Speedway.

The 600cc Micro-Sprint feature was postponed until Friday, April 29  due to the wet weather. The heat winners in the 600cc Micro-Sprint  class were Rick Stief and Sam Locuson.

TYLER DEVAULT GAINS HIS FIRST BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY WIN

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (April 16, 2011) - At the Fast and Furious Friday night opener on the quarter mile speedway, Tyler DeVault won the 600cc Micro-Sprint feature. Justin Stillwagon was the victor in the 270cc  Micro-Sprint event. In the 4-Cylinder Stock car race, Warren Stradley was the winner and the Modified Lite contest went to Adam Weber.

In the 20-lap 600cc Micro-Sprint race, Tyler DeVault took advantage of his pole start and rocketed out to the lead over Bill Thomas and Sam Locuson. Locuson took over the runner-up spot on lap 4 after Thomas bobbled in turn two of the inner dirt oval. DeVault had a comfortable lead eliminated when the red flag appeared on the seventh circuit as Eric Brobst flipped coming off of the second corner. On the restart, DeVault kept his lead with Locuson maintaining second. On lap 9, Bob DeVault motored past Thomas and into third. At the halfway point,
Tyler DeVault was about four car lengths ahead of Locuson. By lap 15, Tyler DeVault’s lead was diminishing as he was closing in on lap traffic. With only three tours remaining, the top three were under a blanket but Tyler DeVault navigated flawlessly through the congestion to win his first Bridgeport Speedway feature. Sam Locuson was second followed by late charging Lee Nardelli, Bob DeVault and Bill Thomas. Heat winners in the 600cc Micro-Sprint class were Tyler DeVault, Dean Seemans, Bill Thomas and Sam Locuson. Brobst scored the win in the consolation race.

After winning a qualifying race, Justin Stillwagon led all 20 laps to triumph in the 270cc Micro-Sprint feature. This was Stillwagon’s fourth career victory at Bridgeport Speedway. John Blanda, Richie Keller, Ernie Miles and Jonathan John completed the event in order behind Stillwagon.

In the 20-lap 4-Cylinder Stock Car main event, Warren Stradley scooted by Bob Hartman on the second tour and led the remainder of the race to secure his fortieth career win. Hartman, who won the heat race, finished in the runner-up spot. Kate Raviely wound up in third with Art Knapp taking home a fourth place run.

Adam Weber won the Modified Lite qualifying and feature race over Ashley Wilson.

WATT IS ELECTRIFYING AT BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY

BRIDGEPORT, NJ (April 10, 2011)  On the 40th season opening race at Bridgeport Speedway, Ryan Watt scored the win in the Bridgeport Modified feature. In the URC Sprint Car main event, Daryn Pittman was the victor. Pat Conaway bested the field in the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car race. The Rookie feature went to Ryan Wozunk.

In the 25-lap Bridgeport Modified feature, Ron Roberts took the lead at the start with Ryan Watt, Michael Cogdill and Larry Lippincott in the hunt. Watt quickly reeled in Roberts and took over the top spot on lap 2. Following two caution periods on lap 2, Watt maintained his lead with Roberts, Lippincott, Brett Ballard and Frank Dorry, Jr in pursuit. After one more lap was completed, Ballard had launched himself into the runner-up spot. On lap 8 as Watt was just beginning to stretch out his lead, Michael Cogdill spun in the middle of turn four and Lippincott collided into him. A red flag was displayed as Lippincott was experiencing some discomfort following the accident.

Shortly after the green flag was shown, a second red flag was waved when a big multi-car tangle occurred in turn two. As the result of this accident, several cars could not continue to race. When action got back underway, Watt was now being hunted down by Ballard, Travis Hill, Jordan Watson and Chad James. Watson scooted by Hill on lap 12 to take over third position. With 10 laps remaining, the top three had broken away from the pack and Watson began to close in on Ballard. With Watt firmly in control with a very comfortable lead, the final caution of the race occurred as Matt Budd spun on lap 24 in turn one.

On the single file restart with one lap to go, Watt held off his foes and won his first Bridgeport Modified feature. Watson squeezed by Ballard to win the battle for second. Hill and James rounded out the top five. Dorry, Jr., Lippincott and Brett Kressley were victors in the Bridgeport Modified qualifying events. The consolation event was captured by Corey Anderson.

Daryn Pitman registered his first career victory in the URC Sprint Car ranks. Polesitter Jonathan Swanson grabbed the lead at the start of the 25-lap main event with Ed Aiken and Pittman in his tracks. The leaders became engulfed in lap traffic by lap 8. Shortly afterward, Swanson bobbled in turn one and Aiken took over the lead with Pittman, Becca Anderson and JJ Grasso passing Swanson as well. On lap 12, Aiken’s night ended with a mechanical issue and Pittman inherited the lead. Once in front, the tenth place starting Pittman navigated the
final half of the race without an issue to collect the first prize check. Second place was taken by Anderson. Grasso, Curt Michael and Eddie Wagner completed the top five. The URC Sprint Car heat winners were Swanson, Wagner and Anderson. Josh Weller won the B-Main event.

In the Proformance Cuts Outlaw Stock Car 15-lap feature, Pat Conaway led from start to finish as he notched his 39th career victory. Teammate Nick Gargiulo completed the race in second followed by Bob Dooley, Jeff Dirkes and Joe Meron.

Ryan Wozunk, a former Micro-Sprint competitor, wired the field to win the 6-lap Rookie race.
