For Immediate Release BRS-070420-1
Limited fans in the stands see some great racing and an outstanding firework show, courtesy in part by Noise R’ Us Fireworks, on F.M.S. NAPA of Bradford night. The evening winners were: Jason Gray in the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, Matt Ellsworth in the DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes, George Osgood in the C.A. Miller Limited Late Models, Lucas Wheeler in the LaValley’s Building Supply Dirt Stockers, and Jason Porter in the Peanuts Auto Four Cylinders.
In the DIRTcar Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds Jason Gray put on a whale of a performance coming from deep deep deep in the field. Gray took the lead on lap thirty and from there sailed on for the win. James Fadden picked up his tail on the way by making his way to a second place finish. Jordan Fornwalt joined the duo to claim the final victory lane spot. Richie Simmons with his best run of the season came home in fourth with Matt Lashua finishing in fifth.
It looked like the makings of a triple crown for Bob Shepard in the Wells River Chevrolet DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes, unfortunately after winning his heat and the semi feature, his pole starting position did not work out the way he had hoped. Midway thru the main event the handling started going away as did his sights on the coveted triple crown. Tonight, it would be Matt Ellsworth’s night to shine as he made his way to the front and the point midway thru the race and hold on to it for the win. Joining him in victory lane coming from deep in the pack was Tad Kingsbury and Tyler Stygles. Melvin Pierson and Thomas Placey finished out the top five.
The USAC DMA Midgets were off and will be back in action on July 11, 2020.
The C.A. Miller Limited Late Models and LaValley’s Building Supply Dirt Stockers had a combined field of fourteen cars, with thirteen taking the green for their main event. Lucas Wheeler in his first performance of the season grabbed the win for the LaValley’s Building Supply Dirt Stockers with Jesse Dunham and Troy Prentice coming home in third. George Osgood gets the win in the C.A. Miller Limited Late Models with Ryan Christian coming home in second and Tyler Tremblay in third. John Neddo and Kelly Miller rounded out the top five.
Once again, an impressive field was on hand for the Peanuts Auto Four Cylinders. Jason Porter coming from the eighth-place spot was able to jump to the lead in only two laps and cruise on to his first win of the season. Buddy Welch was the man on the move working his way from nineteenth to cross the line in second with Dennis Perry coming home in third. Kevin LaForest and Bobby Bell finished out the top five.
The Mike Estrada State Farm 4 Cylinder Enduro will return for racing action on Saturday July 25th.
The first appearance of the season for the WYKR Sprint Cars of New England had Chris Donnelly driving for the Fornwalt stable leading the way to the checkers for the field. Starting from the fifth-place spot it didn’t take him long to gain the point and cruise on for his first win. The battle for second was a tight one for several laps and at the end Scottie Holcomb was able to grab the bridesmaid position with Will Hull doing double duty, also driving in the DIRTcar Wells River Chevrolet Sportsman Coupes came home in the third-place spot. Jacob Williams and Travis Billington completed the top five. The WYKR Sprint Cars of New England are scheduled to return on August 1st.
Racing action will resume this coming Saturday July 11th with our David’s House Benefit night. The night will offer a full card of racing for the 99Rock weekly racing series, with the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds, Wells River Chevrolet DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes, the USAC DMA Midgets, CA Miller Limited Late Models, LaValley’s Dirt Stockers and the Peanuts Auto Four Cylinders.

Once you enter designated ticket area or the pits you will not be able to leave, (there will be no reentry), if you leave you will be required to leave the property immediately.
We are just as anxious as everyone is to get things back to our “new norm” until then we continue to work diligently within the Vermont State guidelines, to ensure that we are doing everything in our power to keep everyone safe, and sincerely appreciate your understanding.
