Latest Race Results


    Jeff Rine started 2019 the way he ended 2018 at Bedford as he cruised to the big win in the first Late Model event of the season.  It was his 27th career win at the track, tying him with Gary Stuhler for third on the all time win list.  Joining Rine in Victory Circle was David Stremme, who came from North Carolina and devastated the talent loaded Renegades Modified field.

     In other action, Bob Jay led the distance for the Semi Late victory and Ryan Peer rallied late to claim the 4 Cylinder finale

     Jeff Rine and Matt Sponaugle were the front row starters in the Late Model 25 lapper, and Sponaugle got the jump at the start.  Sponaugle led Rine and third place runner Andy Haus easily as the field was slowed several times for minor incidents in the early laps, the oddest of which occurred on a lap 7 restart as Justin Kann hit the restart cone and ended up dragging the long  cone rope until he was sent to the pits.
