September 1st, 2014
Rick Singleton continued his stellar Bedford season as he swept to another win at Bedford Speedway on Sunday.  Singleton’s win in the special holiday show was his eighth Limited win of the season at Bedford, where he had already clinched the 2014 championship.  Jeff Miller Jr picked off his first ever Bedford  win in the accompanying 305 sprint event.  Scott Rickrode won the special vintage car race, Ed Vogel came from the pack late to snag the Pure Stock win before Cale Martin took the 4 Cylinder finale.
     Darrell Dick was the pole sitter in the special holiday weekend Limited event and easily led the early laps.  Dick had a large lead over Brian Lessley when the first caution flew on lap 10.  That caution closed the field but more importantly brought Singleton,  who had climbed from eighth to third, within sight of the leaders.
     It took two laps for Singleton to secure second place and he immediately set sail for Dick.  On lap 14 he took the lead which he held to the end.  Robby Black’s climb to the front was slower than Singleton’s.  He finally got to third by lap 19 and took second from Dick on the last lap.  But Singleton was well ahead and swept to the win.
