Local short track racing personality Bill Miscoski has jumped on board to sponsor the August 12 program at Bridgeport.  “I like what Bridgeport has been doing the past few years and I just wanted to bring some of my racing and business friends to be part of one of their weekly shows,” Miscoski offered.  “I also wanted to do something for my good friend Ron John Koczon, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity.”  

Aug 12 - Racing for Ron John:  Last summer local dirt track racer Ron John Koczon was unfortunately diagnosed with cancer.  After going through surgery last fall, Koczon has had his ups and downs and continues to be a fighter in this long process to recovery.  The treatments and doctor visits are continuous which can certainly wear on a family’s every-day routine.  Ron John’s infectious smile and positive attitude are just a couple of things that race fans and friends have come to know him for.  “He’s got so many friends that want to support him and wish him the best of luck.  I’ve already received over $1,500 pledges to help take some of life’s everyday burdens off of Ron and his family, and I know we can raise a lot more at Bridgeport that night.  Ron John and his family are just great people and this is how I thought we could help them out a little,” added Miscoski
