RECORDS FALL AS BACON TAKES BRIDGEPORT BY STORM

Records fell and milestones were reached as Broken Arrow, OK driver, Brady Bacon raced to his first ever win in the Garden State to pick up the victory in the second night of the 2024 Eastern Storm.  The Bridgeport Motorsports Park hosted a double header show of the USAC National Wingless Sprint Cars and the Danny’s Pizza Pizzazz Modifieds sponsored by JPA Masonry.

Bacon led from the green flag to the checkered to become the first USAC driver this season to hold the lead throughout the entire thirty lap race.  Bacon started from the pole after timing sixth overall and finishing second in his heat race.  

Kevin Thomas, Jr. quickly moved into second and began his race-long chase of Bacon.  Justin Grant wasted no time into getting into third.  At times Bacon, Thomas and Grant were nose to tail with a single car length separating each position.  

With just ten laps to go, Brady and Thomas were able to pull away from the field as Grant, Robert Ballou and Mitchell Moles completed the top five.  

That’s the way they ran to the checkered with Bacon taking the win over Kevin Thomas Jr., Justin Grant, Robert Ballou and Mitchell Moles.  CJ Leary finished sixth over Kyle Cummins, Anton Hernandez, Ricky Louis and the highest finishing East Coast driver, Joey Amantea.

Bacon admitted that he had never looked at the track prior to the feature and didn’t realize the amount of preparation that had been done to the track.  However, as the race wore on, Bacon got better.  Kevin Thomas, Jr. showed his nose and once Bacon realized where the driver from Alabama was running, he was able to take away that line from Thomas.

It was a big turnaround for Bacon and the Dynamics No. 69 crew who had suffered an engine failure during Tuesday night’s action.

Coming into the night’s competition, CJ Leary held the one lap record which he broke during his pair of timed laps.  Then two cars later, Mitchel Moles broke the record again and this one stood throughout the event at a time of 14.685 seconds.  Matt Westfall broke the eight lap record in the first qualifier only to have Anton Hernandez set the new mark in the second heat race with a time of 2:03.44.

Bacon’s win moved him to the top of the All Time Winner’s List for the Eastern Storm.  It was Bacon’s seventh Eastern Storm victory, moving him ahead of Bryan Clauson, Levi Jones and Chris Windom.

In Danny’s Pizza Pizzazz Modified action, it was Brian Papiez who raced to the win in just his third outing with the Dave Adams owned No. 37 Modified.  Papiez competes weekly in Adams’ car in the Ice Less 602 Sportsman but a second car with a Modified engine was prepared for some special shows this season.

Frank Cozze and Papiez led the field to the start but a first lap incident off of turn two, had the field scrambling for evasive action, sidelining several cars before the green flag.  Neal Williams had his night end prematurely as well as current Modified point leader, Matt Stangle who tried to restart the race but exited after just a few laps.

Papiez grabbed the lead on the start and was able to hold off the challenges from Cale Ross to pick up the win.  Ross finished second with Dillon Steuer taking third after a battle with Sammy Martz, Jr. who finished fourth.  Danny Bouc rounded out the top five at the end of thirty laps.

Alex Yankowski finished sixth followed by Cozze, Jordan Watson, Billy Osmun III and Jim Gallagher, Jr.  

The win marked the first Modified feature win for Papiez on the High Banks of the Bridgeport Motorsports Park.  

Wednesday night’s race provided the final tune-up for the Modifieds before the $8,000 to win Doug Olsen 44 lap Memorial Race scheduled for this Saturday night.

BRIDGEPORT DRIVERS HONOR JOEY KAY WITH SUNDAY COMPETITION

BRIDGEPORT DRIVERS HONOR JOEY KAY WITH SUNDAY COMPETITION

Wagner & Weaver Pick Up First Wins of the Season​

The Bridgeport Motorsports Park presented a six division show on Sunday this weekend.  Race results saw some new winners in addition to several repeat winners making the trip to the Champion Brands Victory Lane sponsored by John W Kay Electric.

Weaver has recorded many wins at Bridgeport – mostly on the old 5/8th mile track.  His first win on the High Banks came in 2022 in a late season non-winners event.  Last season, Weaver earned a win in the Topless event for the 602 Sportsman.  Sunday’s win was his first win in regular competition.

The ageless veteran, Wayne Weaver, raced to his first win of the season on the High Banks, leading every lap from the green to the checkered with a red hot Ethan Bill just a few car lengths behind the leader.

Weaver took the lead on the start with Bill racing from his eighth place start and into the top five almost immediately.  Ethan Young raced in second for the first handful of laps with Jax Yohn taking over the spot until Bill raced into second on lap fourteen.  Matt Peck raced from deep in the pack to take over third on lap fifteen.

Weaver raced to the win ahead of Bill, Peck, Yohn and Young who recorded his best finish of his young career, racing within the top five throughout the twenty-five lap event.  Joe Toth finished sixth followed by Billy Chester, Michael Beckett, Thomas Prychka and Brian Rogers.

Ashley Therien snapped Michael Beckett’s win streak in the DA’a Auto Body & Repair Rookies, taking her first win of the season.  Beckett finished second after several challenges for the lead.  Kenny Ott finished third with RJ Witcraft finishing fourth.

Eddie Wagner raced to the flag-to-flag win in the DCB’s Plumbing & Heating Mid Atlantic Sprint Series (MASS).  The MASS teams spent the day honoring Joey Kay whose life was lost a week earlier in a tragic traffic accident.  Everyone knew Kay, not only as a competitor but as a friend.  Joey Kay was just one of those people who never met anyone who wasn’t a friend.

Kay was honored during opening ceremonies.  Friend, Brian Carber put Kay’s No. 12 wing on his No. 8c sprint car for Sunday’s race.  Stickers honoring Kay were sold throughout the day and the MASS drivers went through the grandstands to take a collection for Kay’s wife, Rachel and the Kay family.  Carber paced the field before the start of the feature and then the pole was left open as Wagner took the field to the green.

Wagner was on a mission, leading the way over Ryan Stillwaggon, Bob DeVault, Jon Brennfleck and Larry McVay.  Tim Iulg raced the Ale No. 19A into the top five before halfway and wasted no time moving into second as defending MASS Champion, Buddy Schweibinz took over third.  As Wagner caught the back of the field, Iulg and Schweibinz cut into his lead.  Iulg was pressuring for the lead when the caution waved with just a few laps remaining.

Wagner had a clear track on the restart and raced to the victory over Iulg, Schweibinz, Dave Brown and Stillwaggon.  Brian Carber finished sixth followed by Dan Leaper who scored his best finish to date.  Hard Charger, Jared Kreider finished eighth after advancing fourteen positions followed by Brennfleck and Troy Betts.

Chris Allen, Jr. raced to his third consecutive Victory Fuel Wingless Sprint win on the High Banks, bringing his season win total to five.

Larry Drake led the first three laps before sprint rookie, Matt Peck took the lead on lap four.  Peck led a pair of laps before Allen took the lead.  Mike Thompson raced through the field to run second, taking the position from defending champion, Brian Spencer late in the race.

Allen took the win over Thompson and Spencer with David Swanson and Dan Leaper completing the top five.  It was season bests for both Swanson and Leaper.  Jonathan Swanson finished sixth followed by Rich Mellor, Shea Wills, Matt Peck and Larry Drake.

TJ Henry made his first appearance of the season and went right into the lead in the John W Kay Electric Street Stock feature.  As Henry headed to the stripe to complete lap ten, a tire went down on the No. 57.  Lee Allen led the field to the restart with a lot of pressure from Mike Hughes.  Allen and Hughes scored lap thirteen side by side.  Hughes pulled ahead on lap fourteen and scored his second win of the season.  Allen finished second followed by Nick Sandone III, Jeff Dirkes and Tracey Appleby.

Eric Degler made it two wins in a row as he capture the win in the Four Cylinder competition.  Former champion, Ed Ford finished second followed by Joe Garey, Sr., John Parker and Colin Gale.

Richie Pratt, Sr. led the way in the Vintage Cars in the sheetmetal class with Ted Grieves taking the coupe division.
