Opening Night Huge Success at Kingdom of Speed, Bridgeport Motorsports Park

Bridgeport, NJ – The Bridgeport Motorsports Park finally, waved the green flag on the 2023 season after several scheduled events fell to the weather.   

Joseph “Jojo” Watson drove the Auto Gallery Racing No. 21w to its first win of the season in the Danny’s Pizza Pizzazz thirty lap Modified feature event. Travis Hill was victorious in the Precision Hydraulic & Oil 602 Sportsman feature with the Cogdill No. 98 while Tom Wills, Jr. raced for the win in the Amwell Auto Body Street Stock feature event in his family owned No. 856 Street Stock.  Brian Spencer overcame a rough start to the night to pick up the win in the North East Wingless Sprint Car feature sponsored by Melton Industries while Joe Garey, Jr. got the season started off with a win in the Amwell Auto Body 4 Cylinder feature event.  

Watson was the fourth different leader in Saturday night’s Modified feature event but he led the most important lap of all – the last one!  

Mike Franz led the first lap before Cale Ross raced to the outside to take the lead on lap two.  Neal Williams raced into second on lap two while Watson took over third on the next circuit.  Ross found a great line and raced to a several second lead in the early going.  

Williams raced the Sal DeBruno owned No. 0 out in front on lap eleven but Ross was back in front the next time around.   

Watson raced into second just beyond the halfway mark and then took the lead on a lap nineteen restart.  Positions continued to change in the top five throughout the remaining laps.  

Watson raced to the win – his first on the High Banks since the 2021 season and the first for the Auto Gallery Team.  Williams raced home in second with Duane Howard and the Getz No. 15G taking third after a late race charge.  Cale Ross finished fourth while Richie Pratt, Jr. had a strong showing in the Joel’s Auto Technology No. 19 to finish fifth in his first race in this car.  Jordan Watson, Sammy Martz, Jr., Sam Martz, Sr., JR Fulper and Rick Laubach completed the top ten in the running order.  

Brian Papiez grabbed the lead at the green flag and then help off the challenges of Ethan Bill and later, Travis Hill in the twenty-five lap Precision Hydraulic & Oil 602 Sportsman feature event.  After several attempts, Hill finally secured the lead following a lap seventeen restart and then led the way to the checkered flag.  

It was Hill for the win over Papiez.  Hill used laps early in the race as well as caution laps to search for the best line on the track which ultimately allowed him the run for the lead.  Matt Peck used a late race charge to finish third followed by Ethan Bill and Scott Hulmes who turned in a great performance in his Wiked Motorsports entry.  Stephen Yankowski, Bryan Brobst, Howie Finch, Pete Serra and Danny Hulmes completed the top ten at the checkered.  

Tom Wills, Jr. had to call in the re-enforcements for help in the pits but that didn’t stop the Tabernacle, NJ driver from capturing his first win of the season over 2022 Track Champion, Lee Allen.  With his family on vacation, Mark and Jack Beaumont came to the track to help Wills from the pits and ended up in the Champion Victory Lane with Wills at the end of fifteen laps.  

Allen finished second followed by Drew Brocklebank in third.  Spyder Ensinger finished fourth with Rich Stinson taking fifth at the checkered flag.   

Over being towed from the track during his qualifying race, Brian Spencer came back with a vengeance to take the lead from Rich Mellor on lap fourteen and drive to his first victory of the season.  Mellor finished second with Shea Wills finishing third.  Al Cheney finished fourth, holding the advantage over fifth place Heidi Hedin.  

Joe Garey, Jr. led the 4 Cylinder feature event from green to checkered to capture the win over Tim Jones and Bobby Drayton.  John Parker finished fourth, crossing the line in front of Chris Gall.

Bridgeport Motorsports Park Kicks off Season with Open Practice this Weekend

Bridgeport, NJ – The Time Has Come!

We are just days away from the first glimpse of the 2023 season at the Bridgeport Motorsports Park as Doug and Brittany Rose prepare to open the track gates for Saturday’s practice.

Saturday’s open practice will give the race teams their first laps on the tracks new clay surface. The 200 loads of clay that have been added to the High Banks during the off season will equalize the playing field as everyone will be back to square one as they begin to collect data and prepare for the season to come.

Rose did his homework, searching for the right clay for the track that he designed and brought to life for the 2020 season. “Tony Lascaro and I had clay tested from 7 different locations before choosing the black clay. We weren’t looking for free stuff – we wanted the right clay for our new surface, ” Rose explained. “John Cavalaro has put in countless hours getting the new surface prepared with the help of Leroy and Rebecca Young.”

Racing at Rose’s facility has been second to none. It has provided a winning combination for the Modifieds, 602 Sportsman and Street Stocks – Bridgeport’s three regular Saturday night divisions. Sprint car racing has become a fan favorite on the 4/10th mile track whether it be one of the national series, winged or wingless, 305, 360 or 410 power-plants.

Many race teams are planning to start their 2023 season with Saturday’s practice and that is exactly what Rose is hoping for. Practice will start at 3pm to insure similar track conditions for the season opener – the @Short Track Super Series Doug Hoffman Memorial 60 Over just one week later. Rose is looking to keep the track open for practice for as long as the competitors wish to participate, running as many laps as possible.

A very busy 2023 season gets underway just one week from now with two days of racing. The second week of the season will see the Ron Faison Memorial on Saturday, March 31st with the Invasion of the PA Posse and the Danny’s Pizza Pizazz Modifieds on Sunday, April 1 (and this is no April Fool!)

Bridgeport will offer first time events for three national series – @High Limit Racing, American Flat Track and Xtreme National Midget Series. We will see the return of the Mid Atlantic Sprint Series for a dozen events in addition to USAC East Coast Wingless Sprints, United Racing Club as well as the return of the USAC National Sprints and the All Star Circuit of Champions. The Short Track Super Series will offer two events on the High Banks.

The Bridgeport Motorsports Park is where it’s at!! It is where YOU should start your 2023 season!
