With Covid vaccines being administered daily and the car show being located outside, we feel that we can successfully begin our reconnection with all our fans, families, and competitors as we get ready to kick off the 2021 racing season the 54th consecutive one at Bear Ridge Speedway.

Then the cars and stars will head to the Ridge for track side photos and 2020 awards presentations for those who were going to attend our 2020 banquet that had to be canceled due to Covid-19. Then the cars and stars will hit the legended quarter mile clay oval for their first round of practice for the 2021 season. From there the first green flag of the 54th season will take place at 5:30pm(ish). The events sponsored of course by F.M.S. NAPA Auto Parts of Bradford VT.
