The D.A. Auto Body & Repair Rookies and PennCo Tech Outlaw Stocks had completed their feature events.  The Stewart Stainless Crate/Sportsman had just taken the green flag but the action came in to a quick halt with one lap scored when a multi-car incident on the backstretch brought out the caution and then the red flag.  And then, the rain came!   The Bridgeport Speedway management team did everything in their power to deliver a complete show to their loyal fans but Mother Nature refused to cooperate.


Steve Kemmery picked up his third win of the season with a last lap pass by race leader, Bryan Olsen.  Olsen led the first seven laps of the feature event but got out of shape while executing turn two on the final lap.  Kemmery had closed in on the leader and was able to move quickly by Olsen on the inside to take then lead and drive on to the checkered flag.  Roger Gaskill picked up second as the field came down the homestretch.  Olsen finished third followed by Tom Holding and Jonathan John.


The PennCo Tech Outlaw Stock feature again, came right down to the wire as Tom Wills, Jr., Brian Ludwig and Tom Wills, Sr. contested the win to the checkered flag.  Wills, Jr. led the first six laps before Ludwig took over on lap seven.  Ludwig led through lap ten.  Wills, Jr. and 3 time winner, Jeramy Doerr, raced for the lead on lap eleven but Doerr got out of shape in turn four one lap later.  Ludwig slid by to lead the field to the green on the restart.  Ludwig and Tom Wills, Sr. battled side by side on lap twelve before Wills, Jr. slid by to retake the lead on the inside.  Wills, Jr. led the way to the checkered flag for his first win of the season.  Ludwig bested Wills, Sr. for second with Ed Bishchoff finishing fourth.  Jim Avery rounded out the top five.


The Stewart Stainless Crate/Sportsman were led to the start by Melissa Scarpatti and Nick Nicotra but it was Scott Hulmes who quickly moved out in front to take the lead from his third place start.  Hulmes raced to the line to complete lap one with 2014 Bridgeport Rookie Champion, Matthew Peck racing wheel to wheel for the top spot.  A multi-car incident on the backstretch saw Kevin Belmont take a wild flip on the backstretch bringing out the caution and then the red flag.  With the cars stopped on the track, the safety crew was on the scene when the rains came.  Belmont was not injured.   The field was then sent to the pits and the decision was made to cancel the rest of the show due to all of the rain in the area.


The rained out Crate/Sportsman feature will be added to the Saturday night show on May 30th.  Fans will see a complete show of Big Block Modifieds, Crate/Sportsman, Outlaw Stocks and Rookies plus the rained out Crate/Sportsman feature event all for the low price of $15.  The rained out Big Block Modified Feature event will be run in conjunction with the June 13th show, again for the low admission price of $15.


The rain prevented six lucky boys and girls from winning brand new bicycles on Saturday night.  The next Bridgeport Bike Night is scheduled for June 20th when a total of ten bicycles will be given away.  All bikes are donated by Bridgeport drivers for these events.
