Billy Winn Classic…

This Friday night, July 14th the Bedford Speedway will be celebrating 81 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 $8100, 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 following night our friends at Winchester Speedway will also be celebrating their 81st Anniversary with an identical $8100 to win 50 lap program. Between Bedford and Winchester there will be over $70,000 up for grabs for our area Late Model drivers this weekend. Read more »

Latest Race Results

CLISE SCORES IN FRONT OF THE STARS AT BEDFORD.

On a night when Bedford Speedway honored all the past Late Model winners, Chuck Clise rose to the occasion to score the big 25 lap victory.  Clise’s win was his first at the track since July of 2016 which had ironically come on another historical moment, the track’s 80th anniversary event.  It was Clise’s fifth career trip to the Bedford stage in the track’s 602nd ever event.
 
   In other action, Jonathan Taylor came from deep in the field to score another EMod win, Jesse Snyder took another Semi Late win and big 2017 class stars Wayne Brenize and Darren Howsare split the 4 Cylinder twin 10s.
 
    On a track wet and fast after a rain delay, Chuck Clise shot around pole sitter Dave Troutman at the start and ran off to a lead he never relinquished.  DJ Troutman emerged in second on lap two and chased Clise for the duration, alternately closing then falling back over the first 20 laps.   A quick caution for Dave Troutman on lap 20 closed the field but Clise ran away from Troutman on the restart to score the win.
