Story By: KOLBY RAMEY / BRIDGEPORT SPEEDWAY – BRIDGEPORT, NJ – It may have taken an extra year, but the winged warriors from the World of Outlaw NOS® Energy Drink Sprint Car Series are set to invade Bridgeport Speedway’s 3/8-mile Design for Vision/Sun Glass Central Speedway on Tuesday, May 21.
This year will mark the first time since 2003 the Outlaws have raced at Bridgeport. The previous seven races at Bridgeport were on the track’s 5/8-mile oval, where Sammy Swindell won five times, Steve Kinser won once and Johnny Herrera won once. This year’s event will be on the track’s 3/8-mile surface, more conducive to the high-speed, side-by-side, wheel-to-wheel action that fans can’t see enough.
“One of the reasons we built the 3/8-mile track was to have big events, and there’s nothing bigger than a World of Outlaws race,” Bridgeport’s Kolby Ramey said. “We can’t wait to see drivers like Donny Schatz and Brad Sweet and all of the Outlaws come to Bridgeport and take on our local racers plus the top stars from Pennsylvania.”
