BRADFORD, VT – The Spencer Rocke memorial night sponsored by Shaker Valley Auto offered the fans great racing excitement, over 40 active members in the Bear Ridge Speedway Kids Club a brand new bike, and a song courtesy of the last man standing with a bike from the Timberwolves Hockey team on hand to support their driver Trever Rocke

The finish almost couldn’t have been any better in the DIRTcar Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds, who put on a whale of a show for the fans only being slowed for a spit one time. With twenty four cars on the track the drive to the front can be challenging and for the fans you gotta pay attention to keep up with your favorite driver when the fast paced action isn’t slowed by caution. This also gives the guys in the front, if up to the challenge, the opportunity to hopefully pull away from the pack. Tommy Kimball led the first 10 circuits before handling problems saw him fade to the back over the next 30 laps. Trever Rocke son of Spencer found himself taking over the point and held on for the next 16 before being over taken by his friend Todd Buckwold. Buckwold has been strong all season and like Rocke not quite able to hold on till the end, but tonight he was not going to let it happen again. Buckwold held on to the lead to grab the win, his first of the season, helping to solidify his rookie points standings and to make him eligible to compete in the second annual Growler event held on the last night exclusively for the Sportsman Mod winners. Rocke came home in second and Matt Lashua with his best finish of the season crossed the line in third. Adam Pierson and Jordan Fornwalt completed the top five. (more…)

BRADFORD, VT – With several new faces to the Sabil & Sons DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds 2016 is looking to offer some of the best modified racing in New England. A record thirty two machines showed up to take the green for the main event. This meant a B-Main was set to happen with eleven cars projected to compete. Five cars unfortunately would scratch and be unable to compete for the night. With the top four in the b-main moving up to the main the field was set with twenty five machines for the first race of the 2016 season on opening night sponsored by FMS Auto Parts NAPA of Bradford. Adam Pierson doing double duty again in 2016 was the man on the move coming from the thirteenth place spot to the front of the field taking the lead from Alan Hammond on lap twenty two. Pierson would go on to win the feature with Midget team mate Josh Sunn coming home in second. Tom Forward would claim the final spot in victory lane grabbing third place his best finish since his return to racing at the Ridge. Returning to action in 2016 are Wayne Stearns and Arnold Stygles. Stearns came across the line fourth with Jordan Fornwalt coming home fifth.
