Bridgeport Drivers To Benefit For FOM Finale

Bridgeport, NJ – In less than 6 weeks, the 12th and final Friends of Mike event will be held on Tuesday, May 16 at Bridgeport Speedway.  The stars and cars of the Big Block Super DIRTcar series will be towing south to the Garden State for the first time in over a decade.  Event organizer Danny Serrano wants the final F.O.M. race to be one that will be remembered.  “We’ve had all kinds of formats and purses for this race, but this will be the first time that it will D.I.R.T. sanctioned.  One of the disconnects that Big Block modified racing suffers is the separation from the NJ/PA/DE drivers and the D.I.R.T. racers that mainly hail from NY.  I wanted all the best drivers at this race and I’m confident that will happen here at Bridgeport in early May,” explained Serrano.

Racers are required to purchase a DIRTcar membership license for race competition in the Super DIRTcar Series.  “We realize that most of our drivers don’t have a DIRT license which is needed to compete for Friends of Mike,” pointed out the General Manager.  “We want to encourage everyone to be part of F.O.M VII, so we decided to offer a loyalty reward heading into this race.  If any of our drivers compete in all of our four ‘point’ shows leading up to F.O.M., Bridgeport will then purchase their DIRTcar license for May 16,” added Serrano.  The four shows consist of two ‘traditional’ point shows (April 15 and May 6) and two ‘show up’ point events (April 23 and April 30).

All Big Block drivers who compete in these four races will earn their DIRTcar membership courtesy of Bridgeport Speedway.  “We know it’s hard enough to come to the track and compete, let alone adding another expense for the racers.  Hopefully, this well help out Bridgeport’s own for this big race.”  The Friends of Mike Finale will take place at 7:15pm on Tuesday, May 16.  Joining the Big Blocks will be the Stuart Stainless Crate/Sportsman, which will race under the track’s ‘Poker Series’ rules that evening.  For more information you can log onto, call the track office at 856-467-4408, or call Danny Serrano at 609-433-4487.
