For Immediate Release BRS-040619-1

With snow still on the ground, people are beginning to wonder if spring will ever come, and if tracks across New England will be ready to open. Have no fear Bear Ridge Speedway “the fastest DIRTcar track in Vermont” is moving full throttle ahead, as we finally are able to get into the track and start preparations for 2019 our 52nd consecutive season of racing.
The “99ROCK wfrd” Weekly Racing Series is taking shape as well with registrations coming in daily. If the number of applications already received is any indication of what they year holds in store for us, we can expect a banner year of competitors in all divisions. With a lot of drivers suddenly realizing they are out of time to get their cars ready, they often forget until practice day to get in those applications, so we are expecting a bumper crop of applications over the next few weeks. Drivers if you haven’t gotten your application in yet, why not take a break from getting your car ready and get your paperwork in, to save time and waiting in line on practice and opening days!
The 2019 line up of car shows is now set. First up will be a few of the cars and stars of the Ridge along with other racing organizations at Newport Chevrolet in Newport NH. We are really excited about adding this great location to our venue. Up next will be our 18th annual Upper Valley car show on April 278th located once again at the Fireside Inn in W Lebanon from 10:00 to 1:00. Weather permitting the track will be open for a practice session exclusively for the cars in attendance for the complete show. The final preseason show of the season located in Bradford VT will have a new location in 2019. This year we are happy to report the Bradford car show will be at a new location and new time. The Bradford Fairgrounds has reached out to us to have our stars and cars on display on opening day Saturday May 4th. The car show will be from 9:30 to 12:30, and will be followed by practice session in the afternoon. The 99ROCK wfrd weekly racing season will then see weekly competition in all five divisions starting that same night May 4th. Racing will kick into gear at 5:30 pm(ish), based on track conditions.
2019 driver and crew membership applications are now available on the website. Be sure to get yours sent in early to beat the lines on opening day. To be eligible for the Bear Ridge Speedway points fund, and recognized at the annual awards banquet, drivers must hold a 2019 Bear Ridge Speedway, DIRTcar, or SCoNE license, compete in the required number of events and run on track designated tires as indicated in the rule book.
The price of a regular show general admission (front gate) ticket for adults (ages 17 to 61) is $10.00 a person and children 11 and under $2.00. Teens 12 to 16 and seniors 62 and older is $8.00. Military Discounts are available at $2.00 off for those with a valid ID. The back gate (pit gate) ticket price for Bear Ridge Speedway and DIRTcar 2019 license holders is $25.00. Non-license holders are $30.00 (both prices are in addition to the front gate ticket.)
The 2019 kid’s club membership is only $12.00 per child, infant to 11 years old, ($10.00 with front gate ticket stub), and once you are a member you get in free the rest of the season!
