DELAWARE AUTO EXCHANGE MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES TO MAKE EIGHT APPEARANCES AT THE ALL NEW BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY IN 2020
BRIDGEPORT, NJ

By ERIKA PALMAI WAGNER

With the off season in full effect, that doesn't slow things down for the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series officials who have been strategically planning for the forth upcoming season of operations for Racesaver Sprint Car Racing in the tri-state area.

"Jeff and I have been really excited to start planning for the 2020 season after another exciting and successful year has ended in 2019," Eddie Wagner, Regional Director of MASS stated. "After many conversations with the new Bridgeport Speedway management, we are excited to announce that we will be on the card for the March 29th grand opener of the all new Bridgeport Speedway!"

"We also have agreed on scheduling eight races total on the newly configured half mile, and these dates will be announced at Motorsports when the full schedule is released".

For 2020, an enlarged purse will be put forth at all eight races scheduled on the South Jersey Oval, making it $500 to win, with an increase in payout to the top ten and $150 to start from eleventh on back.

"Doug Rose and Danny Serrano have been a pleasure to work with thus far, and we appreciate their hospitality and appreciation for Racesaver Sprint Car racing, and it shows with this purse increase," Wagner said. "I believe our teams that have been with us from the start, as well as the teams that will be joining us in 2020 will be grateful for this new purse as well".

In 2019, the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series visited Bridgeport Speedway four times, with two events happening on the 3/8 mile and the other two on the 5/8 mile super speedway. Jeff Geiges would win twice there, once on each track, with Andy Best grabbing the other 3/8 mile victory in early June an 2019 MASS Champion, Ricky DiEva taking his first ever Sprint Car victory on "Pack the House Night" later in the month.

To tie up the 2019 season, teams, drivers, and sponsors with gather at the annual Championship Banquet held on Saturday, January 11th, hosted by the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ. Tickets will be on sale until December 29th and if there are any questions about the event, contact the Series Officials by email at midatlanticseries@gmail.com.

CHERRY HILL, NJ February 12, 2019....Cherry Hill, NJ native and Big Block Modified competitor Ricky DiEva is looking forward to a full schedule assault with the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series in 2019. The twenty-two-year-old versatile wheelman is looking to split his time behind the wheel of his #85 Body Shop by DiEva Big Block Modified – which he regularly runs at Bridgeport Speedway – and his identically lettered and sponsored #85 Racesaver Sprint Car this season, putting focus on running the full 2019 MASS schedule.

“I am looking forward to going to Grandview Speedway this year with my Sprint Car,” DiEva stated. “I have always loved watching the 410 Sprint Cars run on the high banks that track has, so I’m really excited to be able to try it out for myself!”

Beginning at a young age racing Motocross, and then Quarter Midgets at ATCO Speedway starting at the age of nine, DiEva moved up to racing Micro Sprints in the Junior division hosted by Airport Speedway by the time he was eleven years old. After reaching the right age to advance into the regular 270cc Micro Sprint Division, DiEva began racing weekly at Bridgeport Speedway on the quarter mile speedway where he acquired one win and then after moving into the 600cc division, where he would see victory lane again, this time at Airport Speedway.

“When I turned fifteen, my dad and I thought that it was time to move into a full-sized car, so we purchased a Crate Modified that we ran in Delaware until I was approved to run in New Jersey at the age of sixteen,” DiEva recalled. “Then when I turned nineteen, we took the leap and got a Big Block Modified and have been running them ever since”.

In 2018, Ricky purchased a Mach 1 chassis Sprint Car and a Racesaver 305 engine that has been looked over by series sponsor Bitner Automotive. He competed in just two shows last year, once at his home track of Bridgeport Speedway and once more at New Egypt Speedway.

“I’ve known Eddie Wagner since my Micro Sprint racing days, so he helped me get together a car without having to spend a lot of money, which was appealing to me”, DiEva said. “I’m excited to able to race with my friends, as MASS has a great friendly atmosphere where everyone can race hard while having a great time together. My dad and I are definitely looking forward to running a full season this year, while also still competing at Bridgeport in the Big Block on off weeks and weeks when the Sprints are at Bridgeport so that I can do double duty”.

Ricky is looking forward to kicking off his Sprint Car season on April 13th, when MASS begins their third running season at New Egypt Speedway.
