Bedford Banquet Date Change.

Due to a series of mistakes on the part of the Bedford Elks, the speedway has been informed that the originally agreed upon date for the banquet is no longer feasible. As a result unfortunately the banquet will be moved a week earlier to Saturday night, January 24th 2015. We regret having to make this change, but are left no choice. We are very sorry for this inconvenience.

Receiving awards will be the top ten in LM, LMS, SL, PS & 4c points, as well as the top five in e-mod points. Doors will open at 5:30, with dinner being served at 6:30, followed by the awards presentation, and concluding with music and dancing provided by a DJ. Tickets are $37.00 per person and must be ordered in advance, as space is very limited. No tickets will be available at the door. To order tickets please send a check made out to “B.A.C. Inc.” to P.O. Box 16 Maugansville, Md 21767.

Thank you again to all of our wonderful racers and fans for a tremendous 2014 racing season.
