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

Bridgeport Speedway







Wade Hendrickson has always considered the Bridgeport Speedway 5/8th mile his home track. Since his first feature win there in May of 1999, Hendrickson has done some of his best racing on the Logan Township surface.

On Thursday night, Hendrickson earned his 60th Bridgeport feature win in the Spirit Auto Center Big Block Modifieds, moving him one win closer to third place , Billy Pauch, on the All Time Feature Winner's list. "I learned to race here," Hendrickson told the crowd of fans, "It's been a special place in my heart. I had to win one last one here," Hendrickson said, referencing the changes coming to the Bridgeport Speedway next season.

Hendrickson's daughter, Brooke, drew the pole for her dad and his Pat Michael owned No. 51m. Hendrickson is not known for having any luck when it comes to drawing for position.

Hendrickson led every lap of the NAPA Auto Parts sponsored event. Danny Bouc, driving Hendrickson's former ride - the Craig and Lesley Pondish owned C&S Equipment No. 6 - who offered Hendrickson's biggest challenge as he raced from his thirteenth place starting position to challenge for the win. Bouc picked off the competition in the top five, one by one, until he got to Hendrickson. A caution with two laps to go gave Bouc his final shot on the single file restart. Hendrickson used his experience on the restart, slowing down the field, knowing that he would have the jump on the challenger's small block engine. And he was right.

Hendrickson took the win over Bouc who was all smiles after the race. The second place finish marked Bouc's best attempt at Bridgeport this season and he was well pleased with his car's performance.

Billy Pauch finished third in a throwback paint scheme of the L car on a night that he Cimpko family paid tribute to the late Tom Cimpko who played an important role in Pauch's career.

Dominick Buffalino finished fourth in the Horton No. 76, edging out Jimmy Horton at the start/finish line. Richie Pratt, Jr. finished sixth followed by Neal Williams, Jim Britt, Rick Laubach and Roger Manning.

The Cimko Family added an additional $1,000 to the winner's purse plus and additional $500 for fifth (Horton) and $800 for eighth place (Britt).

The win was worth $5,000 for Hendrickson in addition to an Ace for this 2019 Poker Series hand. The three Poker Series events have been won by three different drivers - Pauch, Horton and now, Hendrickson.

Travis Hill drove the Cogdill No. 98H to victory for the second time this season in the South Jersey Overhead Door 602 Crate Sportsman feature.

Hill led every lap of the twenty lap main event to claim victory over Tom Sherby Jr. Wayne Weaver finished third followed by Matt Peck and Eric Kormann. James Hill, Jim Gallagher, Jr., Bobby Bracall, Ernie Miles III and Rick Wegner.

Rich Stinson, Jr. raced to his second consecutive win and fifth of the season in the Sunbelt Rental Outlaw Stock feature event.

Brian Ludwig led the way for the first two times around the track before Stinson raced into the lead after starting third at the green.

It was all Stinson for the remainder of the race as Tom Wills, Jr. picked off positions one by one from his eighth place start. Wills was racing for third at half way.

Stinson took the win with a healthy lead over Wills who edged out Ludwig at the finish line for second. Lee Allen finished fourth with Jeff Dirkes rounding out the top five.

The next race at the Bridgeport Speedway will be Scout Night on Saturday, August 24th when racing returns to the 5/8th mile track.
