Bear Ridge Speedway is gearing up for their 55th year of consecutive racing with an “Elms at the Helm”. The Ridge continues to be the best source of great inexpensive high-quality entertainment for families. What makes the entertainment? Some of the best drivers in New England, fierce competition, and the return of drivers who know “there’s no place like home”

The DIRTcar Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds drivers are hoping they can dethrone the past two seasons champion Jason Gray as they get set to welcome two DIRTcar Eastern Series events. The competition in this division continues to be edge of your seat excitement as anyone in the top ten for the past couple of years could easily see themselves crowned as the champ. Will this be the year that Richie Simmons finally gets the crown, or with Robert Tucker make it happen while holding of the likes of DJ Robinson, Ryan Christian, Jeremy Huntoon, or Matt Lashua. Don’t rule out Jordan Fornwalt a past champ who is more than anxious to reclaim the crown! Returning in 2022 to the Ridge will be TC Forward and Tim Tucker, be sure to visit weekly to see if they can be the sleeper who mixes up the pot for everyone!

In the DIRTcar Wells River Chevrolet Sportsman Coupes Tad Kingsbury is hoping he can make it three in a row, but will have to accomplish the feat while holding off the hard fought challenges of Thomas Placey, Matt “Hoss” Ellsworth, Ricky Sanville or Tim Hodge to name but a few of the drivers who anyone on a given night could grab the checkers putting them in position for the crown.

The USAC DMA Midgets numbers are looking strong this year, with several drivers already talking about being the one on top at the end of the season. Will this year’s champion once again come from the Matzack stable or will the new young guns from the Miller Stable be able to have a banner year and claim the gold for their car owner? Don’t rule out one of the long-time competitors like Jeff Horn who has knocked on the door several times only to fall short.

Also returning of course are the Late Models under a new sponsor banner R&L Auto Towing & Recovery along with the LaValley Building Supply Dirt Stockers, the Peanut’s Auto Ridge Runners and the Joe Mama’s Sporting Goods 4/6 Cylinder Enduro Series.
