BIKE NIGHT & POKER SERIES #3 ON THE 1/4 MILE HIGHLIGHT BRIDGEPORT WEEKEND

     Mother Nature interrupted the racing program on May 16th before several lucky youngsters could be selected to receive bicycles as part of the Bridgeport Speedway’s first Bike Night of the season.  As a result, Bike Night #2 will see twice as many bikes delivered to new owners this Saturdaynight at the Bridgeport Speedway!

     And anyone who rides a motorcycle to the track on Saturday night will be admitted free to see all of the action on the 5/8 mile track as the Hilborn Tri State Race Saver Sprint Cars join the Spirit Dodge Big Block Modifieds, the Stewart Stainless Crate/Sportsman and D.A.’s Auto Body & Repair Rookies!

     The racing action has been intense this season at the Bridgeport Speedway with Wade Hendrickson and Eric Kormann picking up their first wins of the season this past weekend.  Young Steve Kemery not only picked up his sixth win in the Rookie division but went on to win his first ever Crate/Sportsman feature event later in the evening as he was chased to the checkered flag by Pat Wall and Jim Britt.  Stefani Palmai picked up her first ever win in a Spring Car when TSRS last visited Bridgeport as Palmai wrote her own page in the Bridgeport Speedway history. 

     After sitting idle on Friday night, the action switches to the quarter mile track on Sunday for the running of the third hand of the Poker Series for the small cars.

     270 & 600 Micros, Slingshots, Stage 1 Modifieds and 4 Cylinder Enduros will all see action on the Bridgeport quarter mile with racing getting underway at 5:30pm on Sunday

     Tim Buckwalter won the battle with James Morris for the win in the wingless 600 feature during the second hand of the Poker Series while Jacob Hendershot was the winner in the 270 Micro feature.  After Dylan Swinehart won his first ever Bridgeport race during the first hand of the Poker Series, Dylan Hock picked up the Slingshot win in hand number two.  Joel Smith was the most recent winner in the Stage 1 Modifieds while Joe King, Jr. was the big winner in the 4 Cylinder action. 

     The Bridgeport Speedway is a family oriented facility.  In addition to some great eats – from Italian Ice to Steak Sandwiches – the Speedway provides activities for the whole family.  There’s a Bounce House and Slide for the kids in addition to musical entertainment starting when the main gate opens.  The Speedway mascot, the Bridgeport Bandit is on hand throughout the night’s activities and extends an invitation to all to ride his Bandit Bus for a look at the behind the scenes action as they ride through the pit area or even around the 5/8 mile speedway.  The Bridgeport Bullet, the official program of the Bridgeport Speedway, provides you with all of the latest news and information about the competitors as well as driver rosters to keep you involved in the night’s racing action.
