Bear Ridge Speedway “the fastest dirt track in Vermont” is proud to announce the return of Sabil & Sons as part of the 2017 “99ROCK wfrd” weekly racing series sponsoring the DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds. Sabil & Sons has had a long relationship with the Ridge, first as the Old Timers race night sponsor, Lap counter sponsor and now as a premier division sponsor.

Wells River Chevrolet will be returning as the sponsor of the other premier division the DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes. These two divisions will once again be sanctioned by DIRTcar and are setting up to offer some great racing action for the fans.

Not only will there be new faces, as well as last year’s contenders on hand, there will also be the return of some “seasoned” veterans, who will once again be seen doing battle in this division. The Coupes have always called Bear Ridge Speedway their home, and this year will be no exception. Will their numbers exceed 20 on a weekly basis as they have in the Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds? Mark your calendars for every Saturday night starting May 6th to find out for yourself!

Laquerre’s Sports will be returning as the USAC DMA Midgets division sponsor, as well as Weglarz Property Service sponsoring the Four Cylinders.

Everyone is anxious to see the 2017 season, the Ridge’s 50th consecutive to kick into gear, which will begin this year with the 16th annual Upper Valley car show on April 29th 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 annual car show at the Jiffy Mart ~ Bradford Mini Mart on Saturday May 6th 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 6th. Racing will kick into gear at 6:00 pm(ish), based on track conditions.
