COVID-19 forces Car Shows CANCELLED for the 53rd consecutive season of racing

Bear Ridge Speedway

With the talk of the town being COVID-19, people are beginning to wonder if we will be able to race opening night May 2nd, and if tracks across New England will be ready to open. Have no fear Bear Ridge Speedway “the fastest DIRTcar track in Vermont” is moving full throttle ahead, as we finally are able to get into the track and start preparations for 2020 our 53rd consecutive season of racing.

The “99ROCK wfrd” Weekly Racing Series is taking shape as well with registrations coming in daily. If the number of applications already received is any indication of what they year holds in store for us, we can expect a banner year of competitors in all divisions. With a lot of drivers suddenly realizing they are out of time to get their cars ready, they often forget until practice day to get in those applications, so we are expecting a bumper crop of applications over the next few weeks. Drivers if you haven’t gotten your application in yet, why not take a break from getting your car ready and get your paperwork in, to save time and waiting in line on practice and opening days!
