With the 2016 Bedford Speedway racing season in the books, work begins preparing for the 2017 racing season. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who supported racing at the Bedford Speedway this year. The positive response from racers and fans throughout the season has been absolutely amazing, and it is very much appreciated. We would also like to send a special thank you to the Bedford County Agricultural Society for providing us with a fantastic facility to race at. The speedway completed 20 shows this season, losing only six to Mother Nature.
Moving forward to next year, many plans are in the works to continue to provide our fans and racers with a fantastic racing experience.
Tickets are currently on sale for the Annual Bedford Awards Banquet. The banquet will be held on Saturday night, January 28th 2017 at the Bedford Elks Ballroom. Awards will be distributed to the top ten in points in the Late Models, LM Sportsman, Semi Lates, Modifieds, Pure Stocks and Four Cylinders. Tickets are $37.00 per person and must be ordered from the speedway office in advance, the banquet is always a sellout and no tickets are sold at the door.

The new season is tentatively scheduled to kick off with the annual pre-season car show on

Opening Day will be the following weekend, on Friday night April 7th. Friday night racing will continue throughout the summer, concluding at the end of September with the annual Fall Fest. The new schedule has 30 races on it, which include some surprises for fans and racers alike.
