Renegade Sprints Joining Storied History at Bedford Speedway in 2015

250x190-mN4A5ueO62fYjLx232672Inside Line Promotions – FINDLAY, Ohio (Dec. 6, 2014) – Bedford Speedway is one of the most historic race tracks in the United States.

Racing has been contested at the 5/8-mile oval in Bedford, Pa., since 1936 and the Renegade Sprints will join that prestigious list in 2015.

“We are very happy to have the Renegades at Bedford,” Bedford Speedway Promoter Joe Padula said. “Shane (Helms) and his crew are putting together a fantastic series. The drivers that have committed to them are some of the best in the business and we are thrilled to welcome them to Bedford. Bedford has a long history of sprint car racing and we are looking forward to expanding on that in 2015 with the Renegades.”

Bedford Speedway spent its first three decades as a special event track before weekly programs began in the mid-1960s.

“Racing at Bedford Speedway dates back almost 80 years,” Renegade Sprints President Shane Helms said. “As a fan of the sport it’s really neat to look at the history of the track. I’m proud that the Renegade Sprints will be added to that next season.”

Bedford Speedway is the sixth track in Pennsylvania to book a Renegade Sprints event in 2015.

Past Photo of the Week

Everett's Gerald Chamberlain with the C & F (Chamberlain & Frear) #31 pavement modified Mustang, circa 1970, at Langhorne. This car could also be run in pavement late model events by adding the front fenders, hood and other modifications, a practice several teams did during this time period, before the advent of specialty built cars. Mostly known for their Hall of Fame dirt careers, Chamberlain along with his long time crew chief, Gus Frear from Bedford, competed in two NASCAR Grand National (Sprint Cup) events and three NASCAR Sportsman-Permatex events at Daytona along with other NASCAR events and non-sanctioned pavement races in the mid to late 1960's.
