COVID-19 stay in place orders forces the Ridge to cancel week three of season Vermont Food Bank Benefit rescheduled to 8/22
As COVID-19 progresses, and we continue to monitor Governor Scotts softening of his executive orders we to make those hard decisions on what we need to do with our regular schedule and special events.
Knowing that everyone’s safety is of the upmost importance it is still hard to have to pull another plug on a race night. Week number three sponsored by Dad’s 4 By Tool and Supply are now cancelled. Dad’s 4 By Tool will be coming back as the sponsor on September 12th. As you know Bear Ridge Speedway does everything it can to help a nonprofit each month. May 16th was supposed to be the Vermont Foodbank Benefit Night. Knowing that in normal times this night is important, in today’s atmosphere it is even more important, therefore we have rescheduled the very important benefit to Saturday August 22nd.

Knowing that everyone’s safety is of the upmost importance it is still hard to have to pull the plug on opening night, and the second week of the season. Everyone is more than anxious to have things get back to the new normal (whatever that might be), but it is first and foremost more important to do everything we can to keep us all safe and healthy.
When the 53rd consecutive season finally opens it will not be under the banner of F.M.S. NAPA of Bradford, we have moved Mike Olsen and his team to our 4th of July Extravaganza night, which this year will also include the first ever DIRTcar Eastern Series Sportsman Modified Event. This event has been rescheduled from May 9th. F.M.S. NAPA in conjunction with VP Racing Fuels are excited to be sponsoring what is sure to be a history making evening. The DIRTcar Sabil and Sons Sportsman Modifieds Madness night has been moved to July 18th.
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!
