VIDEO GALLERY: Gettin' Dirty at Bear Ridge

Bear Ridge Speedway in Bradford threw off a great night of racing on Saturday with close action in every division. In the first video, the Sportsman Coupes run for a few laps in the second segment of a three-round, Monza-style feature. The clip starts with Chris Carbee (#5) bouncing off the front stretch wall, ends with Billy Simmons (#16) spinning in Turn 4 to bring out the caution, and has lots of side-by-side action in between with eventual podium finishers Melvin Pierson (#33), Josh Harrington (#71), and Bryan King (#X).

In the second video, Chris Donnelly (#17) makes the winning pass for the Sportsman Modified feature win on lap 29 over Bryan King (#X) -- who finished third in both of the features he ran -- and Jack Cook (#1NH) gets past King for second place.

In the final video, the always entertaining SCoNE 360 Sprint Cars begin the second and final 15-lap segment of the their feature race with Anthony Cain (#15C) taking the lead, and some nice moves turned in by eventual winner Matt Tanner (#90) and runner-up Clay Dow (#59). (And special thanks to event sponsor Upper Valley Stove Co. for letting us perch on the roof of their truck for the SCoNE feature!)
