Friday May 18th Cancelled- Racing moved to Sunday May 20th

With heavy storms moving into the area, Bedford races for Friday May 18th have been cancelled. We will be racing instead this Sunday May 20th. Tonight’s entire program will be moved to this Sunday night, with starting time an hour earlier.

Sunday gates will open at 4pm with warmups at 6pm and racing at 6:30. In action will be the Late Models, Late Model Sportsman, Modifieds, Semi Lates and Pure Stocks.


Pit Parking Changes

For 2018 a new pit area has been constructed outside turn four for use by Late Models & Late Model Sportsman drivers. Due to their increasingly tall trailers blocking the view of the fans, they will be moved outside the track. All other divisions will continue to be parked in the infield. This will allow for better sightlines of the track by fans, as well as making the infield less congested and safer for racers.

When entering the speedway, all pit traffic will stop at the pit booth as usual, outside of turn three. At that point, race trailers utilizing the outside pit will turn right, while infield traffic will continue to go straight. Read more »

SPONAUGLE SNATCHES BEDFORD WIN

     Matt Sponaugle rose to the occasion and scored the big Late Model win at Bedford Speedway Friday night.   It was Sponaugle’s fifth career Lat Model win at the track but his first in almost two years.  In other action, chronic 2018 winners continued domination in two classes as Mike Altobelli Jr and Wayne Brenize continued Emod and 4 Cylinder domination.  Jesse Snyder rallied for a dramatic last lap win in Semi Late action while Josh Frankenberry won the wild Pure Stock event.

     After several weeks of road tripping, former track big winner Matt Cosner returned.  After hard luck in his  other two 2018 visits, Cosner’s low point average  earned him the Late Model pole and he took off at the start for the early lead. Read more »
