Rain Sweeps Bedford Doubleheader.

May 11th, 2014

Mother Nature was the winner on both Friday night and Saturday night this week as rain washed out both nights of racing action at the Bedford Speedway. Friday nights racing program was delayed by a brief shower before warmups, then again during the first session of heat races. Both times the track crew ran the track back in and had it ready to race. As racing resumed following the second rain delay the Late Models took to the track for their first heat race, before the field could take the green heavy rains began, finally forcing the track to cancel the nights racing activities.  Bedford’s first “Speedy Saturday” show the next night fared no better, as heavy storms moved into the area during the afternoon, forcing another cancelation.

Bedford Speedway will resume racing action this Friday, May 16th, with a special visit by the URC Sprint Series, for the first of two 2014 visits to the track. In their previous visit last June Robby Stillwaggon took the victory from 12th starting spot in a feature that went 25 laps all green. Joining the URC Sprints will be the Late Models, Semi Lates, Modifieds and Four Cylinders. Gates will open at 5:00 with warmups at 7:00 and racing beginning at 7:30. General admission will be $18, with kids 12 and under free. Pit admission will be $25.
