The 3 day 2022 Bedford fallfest ended Saturday night and produced two new first time Bedford feature winners.    Ethan Dotson made his long commute  worthwhile as he easily claimed the EMod event and Andrew Yoder took the Limited win as each added their names to the list of Bedford winners.   The wins were worth over $12000 for Dotson and $2000 for Yoder

Dotson made it look easy in the EMod 39 lapper.  He got by fellow front row starter  Drake Troutman at the drop of the green and pretty much never looked back, holding a 4 second lead by the time of the first caution on lap 30.

Troutman held on to second ahead of  Joel Watson   until he dropped out on lap 22.  Watson inherited that spot at that point but he had his hands full with 2022 track champion Mike Altobelli.  Altobelli  several times drew along side Watson but could not effect a pass. Read more »

Kyle Strickler made the long tow to Bedford worthwhile as he swept to the big EMod win  at Bedford Friday night.   It was a repeat performance for Strickler as he won  one of the annual Fallfest events at the track last year.    Strickler made it look easy as he led flag to flag in the 39 lap event  honoring DJ Troutman.

In the companion event,  Bill Replogle rallied late and emerged from a wild finish to take the dramatic Semi Late event. Read more »

The annual Bedford Fallfest, this year a 3 day event, opened Thursday night at the track.   After perhaps the best  Pure Stock race of the season, Kevin Weyandt held off Kyle Beckett for the exciting win.  Although  possibly the most experienced driver in the field, it was Weyandt’s first Bedford win in over ten years.  Unlike Weyandt, who survived a dog fight,  Kevin Van Horn rallied late to take the CrateMod win and Colin Welsh led late to win the 4 Cylinder finale.

Kevin Weyandt  started on the front row in the 20 lap pill draw Pure Stock event.   He wrestled the lead from pole sitter Denver Dishong at the start, but his battle was not over.      Kyle Beckett also got  by Dishong on lap one and instantly set upon Weyandt at the front.  For the first nine laps the pair ran pretty much side by side,  with Becketts  inching ahead in the turns but Weyant  shooting by on the straights.  Read more »

The 2022 version of the Bedford Labor Day 55 featured something for everyone: great racing, lots of green flag laps, late race drama and a  late race rally by the winner, Matt Cosner.   It was Cosner’s third 2022 win at the track and he became the first Bedford regular to win the event since 2017/    The win was worth over $12.000 to the happy winner.

Mason Zeigler and Rick Eckert led the stout field to  the green flag and it was Zeigler with the early lead.  Eckert hounded Zeigler lap after lap until he finally effected a pass for the lead on lap 22.   While the lead duo captured the main attention, many were watching Gregg Satterlee climbing through the field slowly.    Without the aid of a caution in the early laps,  Satterlee was up to fourth by the time of Eckert’s pass, and kept climbing.

After a season of mostly frustration, Kyle Weyant rose to the occasion and grabbed a big Semi Late win on Muss Weyant tribute  night at Bedford Friday night.  It was Weyant’s first win of the season and was worth over $2000 including bonus money  from the Weyant family.  Mike Altobelli scored yet another EMod win, Jason Haggerty won the Pure Stock event and Colin Welsh took the 4 Cylinder closer in the exciting program.

After a forgettable 2022 season, Kyle Weyant’s low point average awarded him the pole for the Semi Late 30 lapper.  He made the most of his luck and led from lap one.  But he was hounded from the start,, first by Jesse Snyder, who actually got by for the lead on lap two before his car broke  and he retired.

In an event dedicated to former Late model star and car builder Gary Martz, Matt Cosner dominated the Late Model event at Bedford Friday night.  It was Cosner’s second Bedford win of the season and 13th of his career at the track and he pocketed over $4000.  In other action, Brian Weyandt Jr took the Semi Late win while Austin Burt claimed the 4 Cylinder finale.

After a season  of starting deep in the pack after poor qualifying events, Cosner nabbed a front row start in this pill draw event.  He made good in his luck and blasted into the lead on the very first lap.  Matt Sponaugle gave chase early until Jeff Rine slid by for second on lap 11, just before the caution flew when Shawn Jones banked off the wall in turn one.

The 148th Bedford Fair opened with a bang Sunday night and four happy feature winners graced the stage.  Spike Moore came from deep in the field and rallied late to grab a decisive win in the headline Limited Late Model event.  Evan Taylor, denied a win the previous week held off Mike Altobelli to take the EMod win.   Kyle Beckett took the Pure Stock event before  Derek Long  finished the evening with a 4 Cylinder win.

The annual five dollar night at Bedford produced a huge crowd, fireworks and four happy winners Friday night.  Jesse Snyder led off the action with a popular win in the Semi Late event.  It was his first win at the track in almost two years and he earned it,     The Taylor family monopolized the front of the EMod event with Jonathan winning,  before Dalton Weyandt and Darren Howsare completed the evening with wins.  To mark the year, all the feature events went 22 laps with fireworks to follow.

Jesse Snyder took the Semi Late lead at the start,  but was heavily hounded by  first Travis Calhoun and later  Brian Weyandt Jr who arrived from deep in the pack.     Several early cautions slowed the beginning laps, but no one really threatened the top two.  But while they held sway on every restart, all eyes were on Tont Catlett, who was knifing through the field after starting dead last.
