    Due to weather, it took three tries to get a racing program in during the 2017 Great Bedford Fair, but it finally happened Sunday night.  It was a unique event as the third try produced three first time Bedford winners, each coming in unique ways, and almost produced a fourth first timer.
   Second generation racer Mark Watkins led pole to pole in the headline 305 event, Taylor Farlling won the Limited event in the tech line and Josh Frankenberry rallied late to snare the Pure Stock win.  Chris Reckner was enroute to a first ever 4 Cylinder win until his engine expired with two to go, allowing Wayne Brenize to end the evening with that win Read more »

On a night when Bedford Speedway honored all the past Late Model winners, Chuck Clise rose to the occasion to score the big 25 lap victory.  Clise’s win was his first at the track since July of 2016 which had ironically come on another historical moment, the track’s 80th anniversary event.  It was Clise’s fifth career trip to the Bedford stage in the track’s 602nd ever event.
   In other action, Jonathan Taylor came from deep in the field to score another EMod win, Jesse Snyder took another Semi Late win and big 2017 class stars Wayne Brenize and Darren Howsare split the 4 Cylinder twin 10s.
    On a track wet and fast after a rain delay, Chuck Clise shot around pole sitter Dave Troutman at the start and ran off to a lead he never relinquished.  DJ Troutman emerged in second on lap two and chased Clise for the duration, alternately closing then falling back over the first 20 laps.   A quick caution for Dave Troutman on lap 20 closed the field but Clise ran away from Troutman on the restart to score the win.
