Billy Winn Classic…

This Friday night, July 13th the Bedford Speedway will be celebrating 82 years of racing at the Fairgrounds oval. An exciting night of racing is planned with the Super Late Models racing 50 laps joined by the Modifieds and Pure Stocks. The winner’s share of Friday night’s Classic purse is $8200, with $600 to take the green, as part of a $35,000 total purse.

Friday’s racing program is dedicated to the memory of Billy Winn, one of the top dirt racers of the 1930’s and the winner of the first auto race at the Bedford on September 5th 1936. Winn, a 2003 inductee of the National Sprint Car Hall of Fame in Knoxville was one of the most outstanding racers of the depression era AAA circuit. Not limiting himself to dirt, Winn also competed eight times at the Indianapolis 500. Hosting its first race in 1936, Bedford is the oldest currently operating track in Pennsylvania, and one of the oldest in the country.

The Late Models will lineup using the group time trial format, with heats lined up based on each timed group. The top heat finishers will then redraw for their feature starting position. As this is a Bedford point race, the 25th and final starting spot in the field will be reserved for the high Bedford point driver who fails to qualify in the heats of B-Main.

As is Bedford policy there are no driver entry fees for the show. Drivers take note that regular Bedford rules and regulations will be in effect for this week.

Gates Open Friday night at 5:00 with warmups at 7:00 and racing at 7:30. General admission is $25, kids 12 and under are free, with pit admission $35

Latest Race Results

BEDFORD TRIES BUT LOSES TO THE WEATHER

  For the third consecutive event, Bedford Speedway officials dared the weather man, but this time the victory was only partial.   With all the heats complete and the fields qualified, rain appeared just as the visiting URc racers were lining up for their feature, postponing the remainder of the program.  

   Before the rain hit, all ten qualifying events were completed.  Those winners were Bill Replogle and Jesse Snyder (SL), Josh Wellar and Josh Whitall (URC),  Greg Moore, Mike Walls  and Shaun Jones  (Limited) and Jeff Miller, Dylan Shatzer and Steve Kennewell (305)

All the feature events will be made up at a future date yet to be determined.
