Saturday's Open Practice at Bridgeport & Spirit Auto Center Speedway Cancelled Due to Rain


Bridgeport, NJ - After already losing March 18's open practice, 'Mother Nature' decided to rear her ugly head again for the second scheduled practice at the Bridgeport/Spirit Speedway's South Jersey complex.  Heavy rains from this past Tuesday, along with today's all-day rain have both tracks and pit areas saturated for this weekend's practice.  "It's unfortunate that we've had to cancel both our practices this year, as we know guys like the extra seat time dialing in their race cars before the season starts," offered general manager Danny Serrano.  "Technically we dodged a big bullet last weekend with our Doug Hoffman Memorial event, as we even had to fight off the weather that day too.  We've even had to cancel the Kenny Wallace Driving Experience that was going to take place on this Sunday.  Hopefully the weather will be cooperate much more next week and we'll have another great racing weekend for the drivers and fans," Serrano added.


Anyone that was signed up for the KWDRE on Sunday should contact them at 855-722-3347 or visit about rescheduling.  The Kenny Wallace Dirt Racing Experience will be back at Bridgeport on Sunday, June 11.


Next weekend will see both the Spirit Auto Center Speedway and Bridgeport Speedway in action.  The 1/4 mile Spirit Speedway will have its opening night on Friday, April 7 featuring the wingless 600 micros, winged 270 micros, I2M Solutions Four-Cylinders, and the Speedway All-Star Bagel Stop Slingshots.  The first green flag will wave at 8pm.  Gates will open an hour early at 4:30pm for safety inspection.


Then on Sunday, the 5/8 mile Bridgeport Speedway will roar back to live with the invasion of the URC Sprint Cars.  The winged warriors will make their first of four appearances on the 5/8 next Sunday, April 9.  Joining the 360 Sprints will be the Spirit Auto Center Big Blocks, Stewart Stainless Crate/Sportsman, and the D.A.'s Auto Body Rookies.  Pit gates will open at 1pm, hot laps at 4pm, and racing at 5pm.
