Bridgeport Speedway Pack The House Crowd (Wheels of Speed Photo)



The Bridgeport Speedway’s fourth annual Pack the House Night was a huge success as fans filed through the gates from four o’clock until well after the start of the night’s racing action. Fans enjoyed the free musicial entertainment, camera and autograph day, the many food concessions and the Bandit Bus before the start of the night’s events.

Fans were treated to a night of racing action among six different divisions. The South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman, Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stocks and the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid Atlantic Sprint Series (MASS) raced on the lightning fast 5/8th mile track while the Ace Overhead Door 600 Micro Sprints, the JS Weld-Rite/Mongoose Chassis 270 Micro Sprints and Slingshots raced on the Spirit Speedway quarter mile track. There was also a hot lap session for the Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds held on the 5/8th mile track.

The South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman opened the night of racing with their twenty lap feature event. Polesitter, Eric Kormann led the first eleven laps around the 5/8th mile track before Steve Kemery drove into contention from his tenth place start. Kemery caught up to the leader and then made his pass for the lead with a move to inside off turn three on lap twelve. Kemery then drove away from the competition to claim his third victory of the 2019 season.

Kormann finished a strong second followed by Jim Gallagher, Jr.in third. Matt Peck added a fourth to his collections of top fives this season with last week’s feature winner, Tom Sherby rounding out the top five. Travis Hill finished sixth followed by Tommy Errico, David Crossman, Howard Huepfel and Bobby Bracall completed the top ten in the running order at the checkered flag.

Tom Wills, Jr. turned his 2019 season around with his third win of the season in the Sunbelt Rentals Outlaw Stocks.

Polesitter, Nick Sandone led the first lap as the field raced three wide behind the leader for the runner-up position. Andrew Joslin won that battle and then took the lead as he raced Sandone off of turn two on the second lap. Wills, Jr. drove through the pack, taking the lead as he raced Joslin to the start finish line on lap three.

Wills, Jr. pulled away from the competition as Lee Allen took over second followed by Mike Creamer, Gary Klimeczak and Brian Ludwig through lap five.

Creamer raced by Allen on a lap eleven restart to take over second while Klimeczak and Ludwig continued the battle for fourth right down to the checkered flag.

Wills, Jr. took the win over Creamer and Allen with Ludwig edging out Klimeczak at the finish line.

Ricky DiEva, a former Big Block Modified competitor at the Bridgeport Speedway, moved into full time competition with the MASS 305 sprint cars this season and picked up his first victory in front of a packed house on Saturday night. DiEva led from the wave of the green flag to the finish to capture the victory over Andy Best who has already won a MASS event earlier this season.

This was the third race for the MASS Sprint Cars at Bridgeport this season but the first on the 5/8th mile track.

DiEva led Best to the finish with Rick Stief finishing third. Eddie Wagner, who has played an integral role in DiEva’s sprint car experience, finished fourth with Jason Dunn taking fifth. Larry McVay finished sixth followed by Tom Carberry, Joe Kay, Tyler Brehm and Scott Frack.

Bridgeport invader, Jacob Hendershot debuted a new car and immediately put the No. 27 into Victory Lane in its maiden voyage in the JS Weld-Rite/Mongoose Chassis 270 Micro Sprint feature.

Pole sitter, Johnny Trendler led the first two times around the Spirit Speedway quarter mile. Hendershot, who started third in the twenty lap feature raced into the lead on lap three and never looked back. Three time feature winner, Alex Swift finished second followed by Brandon Shipley who recovered from an earlier incident, restarted at the rear of the field and drove back to a third place finish. Kyle Weiss finished fourth with Glenn Macomber taking fifth. Tom Landwher, Shea Wills, Ross Holler, John West and Ken Andreas completed the top ten at the end of twenty laps.

2017 Track Champion, Matt Smith, drove to his third win of the season in the Ace Overhead Door 600 Micro Sprint Feature.

Polesitter, Jon Keller led the first five circuits around the quarter mile before Smith made his way to the front from his eighth place start. Gary Bozowski quickly raced into second on the first lap and held off any challengers to cross the finish line behind Smith for second. Luke Thomas finished third with PJ Williams in fourth and Jon Keller finishing fifth.

Brandon Pavel, Lee Nardelli, Richie Keller, Travis Hill and Mike Thompson who won the consolation event, completed the top ten in the running order.
Ryan Davey took the lead on the first lap of the Slingshot feature to earn his second win of the season at the Spirit Speedway. Dave McCullough trailed the leader to the finish with Ryan Harris finishing third. Dave Morrell finished fourth with Tomas Mowery rounding out the top five.

It was a beautiful June night for racing. It was a full night of racing action – the first for many in attendance. The Pack the House night continues at the Bridgeport Speedway.

There will be three nights of racing this weekend as the Spirit Auto Center quarter mile runs a regular show on Friday night with 270 & 600 Micro Sprints and Slingshots. The 270s will be featured in Twin 15 lap feature events. Racing gets underway at 8pm. The action moves to Bridgeport’s 5/8th mile track on Saturday night for Quarter Midget Night with the Big Block Modifieds, 602 Crate Sportsman, Outlaw Stocks and Rookies with racing getting underway at 7pm.

Then on Sunday, it’s Poker Series time on the Spirit quarter mile for the 270 & 600 Micro Sprints, Slingshots and Xcel 600 Modifieds. Racing starts on Sunday at 6:30pm.

USAC EASTERN STORM at BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY



CLICK HERE TO GET YOUR TICKETS NOW

You won’t need a weather map for this storm!

The Eastern Storm is headed to the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile track at the Bridgeport Speedway on Wednesday, June 12th.

Last year’s event was a huge success. The drivers found the track “racey”. The fans came in droves for the only appearance of the stars of USAC in the state of New Jersey and they did not go home disappointed. In the words of USAC’s Levi Jones, “There was a good crowd who got to see the greatest names in USAC. You can’t ask for it to be much better than that!”

At the end of the night, Kevin Thomas Jr. was the first to the checkered flag after laps of wheel to wheel racing with Chris Windom and Tyler Courtney. Windom and Courtney had swapped the lead back and forth. When the two made contact, Thomas saw his chance and raced into the lead. It was just the opportunity that he was looking for.

So far this season, Chris Windom is the only driver to have repeated in the win column, but it is CJ Leary who sits on top of the point standings , currently 29 points ahead of Kevin Thomas, Jr. and 38 points ahead of Windom. Justin Grant, Leary, Brady Bacon, Tyler Courtney and Chase Stockon have one win a piece coming into the Eastern Storm races.

In addition to the regulars on the USAC tour, race fans will be able to see several local drivers competing in these events.

Joey Biasi recently picked up the win in the USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Car event on the Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8th mile. Biasi has made it no secret that he really likes this track and his record shows it. In two events, Biasi has a win and a second-place finish.

Biasi is no stranger to Eastern Storm competition. He has competed in these event for several years because, as the driver explains, “You don’t have to have a million dollar engine to compete. Wingless competition is more about the driver driving the car.” Biasi’s sponsors are on board for the Eastern Storm, including B&F General Machine, Burns & Yost Engines, GME Steering, Calaman Radiator, Frank’s Truck Lettering, HG Block Lightning and Dyno, Larry’s Hot Rod & Harleys, Blinders restaurant, Shaup Brothers and Tito Juice. These sponsors are very important to Biasi for monetary as well as product support.

USAC East Coast Wingless Sprint Car Champion, Steve Drevicki will also be in this year’s line-up.

Drevicki is receiving support from Gene Franckowiak, who is supplying the engine. Drevicki will also be receiving some technical support from Clauson & Marshall in what will be his first endeavor in Eastern Storm competition. Drevicki will be using the same car that he uses in wingless competition. He and his team have already done all of the prep work to allow them to change engines with relative ease.

A former two-time ARDC midget competitor, Drevicki believes that the car with the 410-power plant will react more like the midget than the 360-sprint car so he isn’t expecting the change to be a big adjustment.

With the exception of the last event scheduled at Weedsport, the local talent has considerable experience in the tracks that will run during the Eastern Storm.

Grandstand admission for this event is $30, $10 for students 10-15 years old with children 9 and under admitted for Free. Racing will get underway at 7:30pm
