Bridgeport Utilizes Wednesday Rain Date for “Three for All”

Bridgeport, NJ - Bridgeport Speedway has decided to push back Tuesday’s racing program to their original scheduled rain date of Wednesday, July 18. The Super Late Models, 358 small blocks, and USAC East Coast wingless 360 sprint cars will now thrill the crowd a day later on the all new Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8 mile.

“And the trend continues here for us,” offered general manager Danny Serrano. “We were off this weekend and it was gorgeous weather of course....come back Tuesday and the forecast says 100% chance of thunderstorms. However, the silver lining in all of this is that Wednesdaylooks picture perfect for racing. It’s gonna be a hell of show and we’ve got tons of drivers that can’t wait to try out the new 3/8. We’ve been out there prepping it all day and this way we’ll be ready for Wednesday now,” Serrano added. “It’s not often you can see guys like Austin Hubbard, Billy Pauch, Eddie Strada, Kyle Hardy, Jeff Strunk, Mike Gular, Mark Bitner, Ryan Godown, Amanda Whaley, Coleby Frye, and Bernheisel all in one night!”

Pit gates open at 3pm while grandstands open at 5pm. Hot laps take place at 6:15 and racing begins at 7:15 pm. For more information please visit or check us out on Facebook, Twitter, and instagram.

Winner Austin Bishop (Ralph Richards Photo)











Austin Bishop won his fourth feature event of 2018, but his first ever with Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series this past Saturday Night at Bridgeport Speedway. In front of a packed grandstands on account of the speedway's annual 'Pack the House Night' free admission to fans event, Bishop survived multiple restarts, pressure from a hard charging and fast Jeff Geiges and two red flags to take the $450 to win cash prize, thanks to race night sponsor Lin Bethman's Auto Center.

"In those final laps, all I could think about was a staying out front in the clean air and keeping my line straight because I knew Stillwaggon was close behind and he is usually fast at Bridgeport," Bishop mentioned. "I noticed the track started to take rubber in the middle groove, so the objective for me was to keep the car straight and in the rubber so that I could bring it home to victory lane!"

Bishop, who started on the inside pole along side Jeff Geiges after drawing the number one spot during the CRC Industries Brakleen redraw, quickly jumped out front of the twenty-four car field, and maintained the position all throughout the twenty lap feature, constantly facing a challenge from veteran driver, Jeff Geiges, who was all over the back bumper for the first half of the feature.

"Jeff and I were putting on an awesome race and we were both fast!" Bishop said. "At the half way point, I got caught up with the lapped car of Leaper, who was running the same middle line that I was, and coming out of turn two, I anticipated to get around Dan going low, and we came up to him quickly, and unfortunately he went low too, causing me to get into the back of him," Bishop explained.

"I tried to quickly unhook our bumpers by going around the outside of him, but it was just to late and we spun him around, collecting Geiges as well. I feel bad about the situation and how it happened, but I'm just glad that everyone walked away unharmed," Bishop said.

With Geiges now sidelined after the lap nine mishap, Bishop ran away with the win, with the battle for second gaining attention with Tim Tanner Jr. and Ryan Stillwaggon swapping positions, with Tanner eventually finishing up in the runner up spot, and Stillwaggon settling in third. Eddie Wagner and Dave Brown would round out the top five.

"Our season started off a little rocky, with us not being able to finish the first three races we've entered, but now, after running eight shows total in 2018, we've won four of them!" Bishop said. "We're running for National points and the MASS championship this year, so as long as we have twenty decent finishes, we should be in good shape."

Austin Bishop credits his success to the crew of the No. 11A (Parke Bishop, Tyler Rissler, and Frank Styer) and his sponsors Kozie Clothes, Sloan Ford, Doug's Welding, Classic Car Auto Mall, Frank's Shocks and Two Cousin's Pizza.

This weekend, the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series has off, but is scheduled to return to action next Saturday, June 30th Grandview Speedway Inc.. Information on this event will be released in the coming days.
