Bridgeport adds "Underdog 20" for Crate/Sportsman division on Friday night

Friday and Saturday November 4 & 5 will mark the first ever Big Track Classic Weekend for the URC Sprint Cars and Crate/Sportsman. The 360 sprints will compete in the Midge Miller Tribute Races on both nights while the Crate/Sportsman will face off in the "Showdown" on Saturday. Just added to the Friday night schedule will be the "Underdog 20" for the Crate/Sportsman racers.

The "Underdog 20" is an open invite for any drivers that have not won a feature event in 2016. If a driver has visited victory lane in 2016 at Bridgeport, New Egypt, Grandview, Big Diamond, Georgetown, Delaware Int., OCFS, or any other speedway they are not eligible for the "Underdog 20". "Quite a few drivers have asked us over the years about having a race of this format for the racers. I think this is a perfect time to hold an event like this on Friday night," offered General Manager Danny Serrano. "There are so many drivers that have been so close in getting to victory lane but unfortunately have just missed out. So Friday's their chance to stand tall in the spotlight on the night before their big race," Serrano added. The top 3 finishing positions will place in the cash along with the winner receiving a trophy.

The Crate/Sportsman will still go on the clock as scheduled several times throughout the evening as the fastest 602 Crate and the fastest Sportsman will lock into Saturday's "Showdown" redraw. The timed hot laps will be open to ALL competitors. Gates open 4pm Friday with hot laps starting at 6:45. The first green flag will wave at 7:15.
