Bear Ridge Speedway Readies for New Year

(From Bear Ridge Speedway press release)

Bear Ridge Speedway is undergoing its annual spring cleaning in preparation for opening day on Saturday, May 15. The VIP tower, pizza booth, scorers tower, and novelty booth will be ready for opening day with the finishing touches being worked on as the spring weather returns. Fresh paint will be applied at the beginning of the season to many surfaces, including the backstretch wall and buildings throughout the compound. Employees, competitors, and fans are showing up to help get as much done as possible before the doors officially swing open on 2010, the 43rd consecutive racing season at the Ridge.

Upcoming car shows are scheduled for Rutland, Vt., on March 19-21, Hanover, N.H., on March 26-28, and Bradford, Vt., on May 8 for the annual Bear Ridge Speedway car show crowning the three best-looking cars in each division. Following the car show on May 8 will be an afternoon practice session at the Ridge, with free grandstand general admission. A fee will be required to enter the pit area and/or to participate in the practice.

Opening night's "Thunder on the Ridge" sponsored by KDD NAPA of Bradford will include fireworks and double features for all five 99 ROCK Weekly Racing Series regular divisions: Bond Auto Sportsman Modifieds, Wells River Chevrolet Sportsman Coupes, A Notch Above Automotive Limited Late Models, Journal Opinion Fast Fours, and the KDD NAPA of Bradford Hornets. General admission is $10 for adults (ages 17 to 61), $8 for seniors (62 and older) and teens (12 to 16), and $2 for children 11 and under. Mastercard and Visa will be accepted at both ticket gates. Season passes are available for general admission at $150.00 for adults, or $130 for seniors and teens.
