Bridgeport, NJ (November 8, 2017) – With record-breaking low temperatures (for this time of the year) on the horizon, Bridgeport Speedway has postponed this week’s Wildcard Weekend to the following weekend (Nov 17 & 18). A much more favorable forecast is predicted for next weekend thus allowing Bridgeport to utilize their ‘rain date’.
‘We hate to pull the plug when it’s not going to rain but this cold weather is not good for the drivers or the fans,’ expressed general manager Danny Serrano. “We reached out to roughly 50 teams on short notice, and all but a few were in favor of moving the entire weekend back a week. Friday night’s temperatures had already made up some of the drivers’ minds on not competing. With better temps in store next weekend, they were in favor to race next week,” Serrano added.
Starting times remain the same for November 17 & 18 for both Friday and Saturday. All the extracurricular activities planned for the fans will still be in affect on Saturday, including the ‘Party under the Pavilion’ on Friday night. Weekend campers will still be out in full affect along with a ‘weekend combo pass’ for the fans. A stellar field of Big Blocks, Small Blocks, Crate/Sportsman, and Outlaw Stocks will be in action all weekend long fighting for the 811 Dig Safe Poker Series championship.
