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 »

Cosner Takes Bedford Sunday Special

BEDFORD, PA – August 13, 2017

After losing three consecutive Friday’s to Mother Nature, Bedford Speedway took advantage of a rare Sunday raindate for the annual Muss Weyant Tribute Show. Matt Cosner was the beneficiary, claiming his third Bedford Late Model win of the year. Bill Replogle won the special 30 lap Semi Late portion of the Weyant Tribute, with Barry Weyandt winning the 20 lap Pure Stock portion. Invader KC Burdette claimed his first ever Bedford modified win in his first career Bedford start and Chris Reckner won the Four Cylinder nightcap.

Nathan LaSalle and DJ Troutman led the Late Model field to the green for their 25 lap feature. Immediately on the start Troutman and Chad Hollenbeck made a move around LaSalle to go to the front. A quick yellow for debris on lap one then slowed the field. Following the restart Cosner passed Hollenbeck on lap five, setting his sights on the long gone Troutman. With no yellows to help him, Cosner tracked down Troutman setting the stage for a multi lap, side by side battle for the lead. With Cosner and Troutman using the entire track they raced hard through lapped traffic. Behind them Jeff Rine and Hollenbeck were racing just as hard for the third position. Cosner finally cleared Troutman on lap 18, leaving Troutman to deal with the fast closing Rine in lapped traffic. The second yellow fell on lap 23 when Nathan LaSalle got into the turn one wall very hard. Troutman and Rine were unable to challenge Cosner on the two lap shootout to the finish. At the end it was Cosner, Troutman, Rine, traveller Colten Burdette, in his first Bedford start, and Chuck Clise rounded the top five. Troutman and Cosner won the heats. Read more »
