Bridgeport's May 13th show moved to Big Track

Bridgeport, NJ - The final 'Preseason' event at Bridgeport scheduled for this upcoming Sunday has been relocated to the 5/8 mile track.  Originally scheduled for the all-new Design for Vision/Sunglass Central 3/8 track, after much deliberation and strategy, track management felt best to host the event on the 5/8 mile.  "It's much easier to sit back in January and make a plan or schedule on paper however, it's a totally different ball game to execute that plan when that moment comes," offered General Manager Danny Serrano.

 

"For starters, we're really pleased with most aspects of our new endeavor, the 3/8, although we will continuously make efforts to improve upon it. We can certainly see the areas where it can shine.  That being said, there's much more work that goes into preparing for the necessary transition between the two tracks than we anticipated.  Our original plan of three races in a row had to be abandoned because of our 1/4 mile Poker Series event this past Sunday (avoiding conflict with Action Track).  So, we kicked off the 5/8 point season and were going to have to switch back to the 3/8 this Sunday, only to transform the 5/8 back into racing shape in two short days for the Super DIRTcar Series event.  Unfortunately, that's way to much work in a 48 hour window...and that's without any unforeseen weather issues. Also, in the process we have uncovered, created and discovered new opportunities for improvements. Our mission remains the same and we are committed to tackling all opportunities presented. But, at this juncture, we must ensure the 5/8 mile is the best it can be for the upcoming DIRTcar show next Wednesday & then our attentions will return to the 3/8.  We apologize to the fans and race teams that were looking forward to the 3-race finale on the new track.  However, it's in the best interest for us to maintain the integrity of the 5/8 track in order to host the best event possible for the Super DIRTcar race," Serrano summarized.
