Austin Hubbard, Amanda Whaley, Donnie Lingo and Ricky Elliott. Ryan Watt, Neal Williams, Frank Cozze and Rick Laubach. Curt Michael, Curt Weller, Dave Franek and Mark Bitner. And many, many more. All in the same place, at the same time and competing in the same racing program. That’s what the Bridgeport Speedway’s Three For All has to offer.
On Tuesday, July 11th,the Bridgeport Speedway will host the third running of the Three For All – Super Late Models, Small Block Modifieds and United Racing Club (URC) Sprint Cars all on the same racing card on the lightning fast 5/8 mile track.
During the running of the inaugural event, after Glenn Elliott dominated the Super Late Model feature, a late race caution pitted Andrew Mullins and Elliott against each other for the final two laps with Mullins picking up the win. Mullins raced to the checkered ahead of Elliott, David Zona, Ricky Elliott and Brian Bernheisel.
On the same night, former Crate/Sportsman Champion, Neal Williams earned his first ever Modified victory as he held off the challenges of Jimmy Blewett to pick up the Small Block Modified portion of the show. Ryan Watt, Rick Laubach and Brett Kressley trailed Williams and Blewett at the finish.
As he’s done on many other occasions, Curt Michael came up with the win in the URC feature event, after taking the lead from Art Leidel on the fifth circuit of the twenty-five lap feature event. Michael raced to the checkered ahead of Robbie Stillwaggon, Josh Weller, Mark Bitner and Davie Franek.
The competitors had nothing but praise for the speedway and so the tradition continued and the event returned on the 2016 schedule.
After a three wide race for the lead at the wave of the green, Donnie Lingo took the lead in the Super Late Model feature over Amanda Whaley and Ricky Elliott. And Lingo never looked back as he led from the green flag to the checkered for the win over Ross Robinson, Brian Bernheisel, Matt Jester and Danny Snyder.
Young Matt Stangle raced with the Small Block Modifieds and took the lead at the green. Stangle was impressive, holding off Ryan Watt until a second restart lined the two drivers up side by side and Watt propelled into the lead from the outside. Stangle trailed Watt to the finish line followed by Jeff Strunk, Dominick Buffalino and Brett Kressley.
In previous seasons, Josh Weller had never won more than one URC Feature in a season. During last year’s Three for All, Weller drove to his third win of the 2016 season after Mark Bitner led the first three laps. Weller took the win over Franek, Michael, Adam Carberry and Troy Betts.
These drivers and many more will return to the Bridgeport Speedway on Tuesday, July 11th for the third running of the Three for All – something for every racing fan. The Bridgeport Speedway is known for their time efficient racing programs. This one gets underway at 7:15pm. (A Wednesday rain date is scheduled if needed.)
