July 6th, 2015
 On the third try, Bedford finally got its Late Model Speedweek event completed Sunday night.  The event, rained out both during original speedweek as well as the rescheduled night on Friday,  was a $4000 40 lap win for Bedford regular  Jeff Rine.   Rine’s second win of the season was the  19th of his  Bedford career, tying him with track legend Scott Rhodes at 7th on the all time list.  In other action on the Sunday card, Brian Lowery dominated the field for his first Limited win in almost a year, while Jim Sayler and Ed Vogel rallied late to take the Semi Late and Pure Stock mains.
    DJ Troutman took off at the start to lead the 26 car field.  He had Rine in tow with Matt Cosner in hot pursuit.  The front three received a scare on lap 13 as Eric Zembower spun in front of the leaders in turn 4.  On the restart the battle at the front resumed but many eyes were on Gregg Satterlee, making a run forward after starting 12th in the field, and already up to fifth.

BEDFORD TRIES BUT LOSES TO RAIN

June 20th, 2015
For the fourth time in the last five events,  rain was the story at Bedford Speedway Friday night.  Before the stoppage, Wayne Brenize won his first career 4 Cylinder event in a makeup of the June 5 show, and Jesse Snyder took the Semi Late main.  As the ARDC event was lining up, the on and off drizzle intensified and the remainder of the program was eventually stopped.
    With the makeup 4 Cylinder event being spun off first on the program, the class, which usually runs last each night, was dealt with a fast heavy track surface for the first time.  Wayne Brenize was up to the challenge as he shot by Dave Harclerode at the start and led the distance.  He had a huge lead wiped out when the caution flew on lap 10 and then survived a last lap restart, holding off both Dacron Powell and Darren Howsare to preserve the historic win.  Casey Fleegle came from 11th to finish 4th, followed by Ryan Peer and Bailey Johnson.  Brenize and Peer won the heats back on June 5.

BEDFORD GETS RAIN AFTER GROUP WINS MAKEUP

June 14th, 2015
 For the third time in the last four weeks Bedford Speedway was weather affected Friday night.  Completed was the Pure Stock makeup from the week prior and all the qualifications for the new show, but a big storm blasted into the area during the kids candy toss, postponing the feature events until a later date.
     Travis Group was the Pure Stock winner after John Howsare failed his trip through the tech line,  his first of the season.  Howsare had started on the front row and led the distance.  Beau Aikey and a mob put on a great battle for second for the duration of the event, with Group securing that spot on lap 5.  Group was no match for Howsare who was on a rail and won easily.

STICKLEY ENDS DRY SPELL BEFORE BEDFORD FALLS TO THE RAIN

June 7th, 2015
 Travis Stickley ended a long long dry spell when he scored the big Limited Late Model win at Bedford Friday night.  Three more events on the card were completed before the remainder of the program was ended by a heavy rain shower.  Vic Vandergrift  led a home team sweep of the Mid Atlantic Emod event,  Greg Dobrosky won his first ever Bedford event in the 305 Sprints and Rick Hulson repeated in the All American event.   Rain began during the pace laps for the Pure Stocks, postponing that and the 4 Cylinder events to a future program.
     Stickley fought his way by both front row starters to lead the first Limited lap, but had Troy Swindell on his tail almost instantly.  In a race which went all the way green,  Swindell was all over Stickley but could not get by.  Ralph Morgan ran down the lead pair and the three ran under a blanket for the duration.  At one point mid race,  Josh Berrier and Robby Black joined in the lead pack,  but eventually they fell back to continue their personal battle.
