DIRTcar Northeast is adding the “East Region Series” for the DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds. The Ridge will be hosting the the first event of four on May 9th. Additional races will be held at Utica Rome, Albany Saratoga and Glen Ridge. Promoters C.V. “Butch” and April May are very excited to be able to be a part of this series with the hosting of an event, and know that several of the Ridge drivers will be strong contendors for the overall championship of this series.

For the 2020 sponsor line up “99ROCK wfrd” is back as Bear Ridge Speedway’s weekly racing series sponsor, Chris is very excited to be returning to Ridge and looks forward to promoting the best weekly racing in the region!
Along with the return of the series sponsor the following division sponsors are signing on once again:
Sabil & Sons will be billed as the premier sponsor with their name waving on the DIRTcar Sportsman Modifieds. Sabil & Sons has had a long relationship with the Ridge, and still is proud to be the sponsor of the Old Timers race night and lap counter sponsor.
Wells River Chevrolet will be returning as the sponsor of the other premier division featured at the Ridge, the DIRTcar Sportsman Coupes. These two divisions will once again be sanctioned by DIRTcar and are setting up to offer some great racing action for the fans.
Everyone knows that the Sportsman Coupes are the exclusive signature division of the Ridge, having been born and raised here, and we are looking forward to a strong car count once again in 2020. Will their numbers exceed 20 on a weekly basis as they have in the Sabil & Sons Sportsman Modifieds? Mark your calendars for every Saturday night starting May 2nd to find out for yourself!
C.A. Miller will once again be sponsoring the Limited Late Models, with Peanut’s Auto LLC of Canaan returning as the sponsor of the Four Cylinder Division. We are also very pleased to have State Farm Mike Estrada on board again for the 4/6 Cylinder monthly Enduros.
