Latest Race Results


For the fourth time in the last five events,  rain was the story at Bedford Speedway Friday night.  Before the stoppage, Wayne Brenize won his first career 4 Cylinder event in a makeup of the June 5 show, and Jesse Snyder took the Semi Late main.  As the ARDC event was lining up, the on and off drizzle intensified and the remainder of the program was eventually stopped.
    With the makeup 4 Cylinder event being spun off first on the program, the class, which usually runs last each night, was dealt with a fast heavy track surface for the first time.  Wayne Brenize was up to the challenge as he shot by Dave Harclerode at the start and led the distance.  He had a huge lead wiped out when the caution flew on lap 10 and then survived a last lap restart, holding off both Dacron Powell and Darren Howsare to preserve the historic win.  Casey Fleegle came from 11th to finish 4th, followed by Ryan Peer and Bailey Johnson.  Brenize and Peer won the heats back on June 5.
