Bridgeport Speedway To Pay Up To $1000 Weekly To 602 Sportsman

Bridgeport, NJ - With the start of the 2020 season around the corner, Bridgeport Speedway has been dilligently peparing for the upcoming season. From creating a brand new race track, to securing essential sponsorships, to filling in key employee roles, to coming up with ways to make Bridgeport even more appealing to the race teams, track owner Doug Rose and his team has been hard at work for the past four months.

Doug Rose had the following to say; "The Ramey family was gracious enough to allow Brittany and I to follow along last year and watch their weekly operation. When doing so, the plans were to roll into the 2020 season trying to keep things as much the same as possible knowing that their formula over the last seven years was a success stated rose."

"Danny Serrano and I have been bouncing around the idea of doing something with the 602 Sportsman payout while not trying to put ourselves in a position not to succeed."

"We’ve sat down a couple times looking at different scenarios and what we could do or not do and still feel it would be safe for the well-being of the speedway."

"With the number of drivers that we feel Will be competing at the speedway in 2020 for the weekly point shows we feel comfortable making a couple concrete changes while putting a twist in there to compensate the drivers when we have excellent car counts for the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Sportsman."

"We have decided to add three things to all points shows at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in 2020. We will be offering a tiered weekly payout with the base pay being the normal pay that the Ramey Family has been using which will be for 29 cars and under which has paid $500 to win with now $75 to take the green which has been raised since 2019.

When we have 30 plus cars we will bump up to the next purse, which will see the winner receive 750 to win with additional positions receiving extra purse money as well. On top of this purse adjustment, we are going to add in a gamblers program, which will add an additional $250 to the win regardless if we are over or under the 30 cars. So, on a weekly basis a driver who chooses to take the gamblers will be racing weekly for 750 or $1000 to win. We feel that this is huge for the growth of the 602 Sportsman division."

The non-point shows at Bridgeport will pay substantially more than the weekly purse; i.e. the winner of the "Kingdom of Speed Weekend" could possibly go home with $1,500! March 21 will serve as the track's 'practice day' with the following weekend being the grand opening for the 2020 season.
