SWEDESBORO, NJ – The Bridgeport Speedway introduced several new events to its fans and competitors last season and none was more popular than Pack the House Night!
On Saturday, June 17, the Bridgeport Speedway will feature its second annual Pack the House Night. Race fans are admitted FREE and will be treated to a full show of racing on both the 5/8th mile speedway and the Spirit Auto Center quarter mile track.
“Pack the House night was an event that we put together last year that had dual purposes,” explained Bridgeport’s Directory of Marketing, Kolby Ramey. “One purpose was to show appreciation to all of our loyal fans that support us week in and week out by letting them into the grandstands for FREE for an event. The secondary purpose was to attract a new crowd of people that have never been introduced to the sport in hopes that we can show them what dirt track racing is all about.” And the event was a huge success among both regular attendees and new fans as well. “Pack the House was a resounding success last year! We had almost 4,000 people in the grandstands and the place was absolutely crazy. After that show we saw customer retention for the remainder of the year with those new fans coming back to see other shows at the track.”
Pack the House Night was also popular with the competitors – especially the supporting divisions that were now the headliners on Pack the House Night. The drivers spent extra time with the many fans who came to offer their congratulations following each of the night’s feature events.
The Stewart Stainless Crate/Sportsman, PennCo Tech Outlaw Stocks, DA’s Auto Body & Repair Rookie and MASS Sprint cars will compete on the 5/8 mile speedway. The quarter mile action will feature winged 270cc Micro Sprints, wingless 600cc Micro Sprints, Four Cylinder Enduros and Xcel 600 Modifieds. That’s eight divisions of racing for FREE!!
And fans will be treated to all of the regular Bridgeport Speedway attractions including live music before and during the night’s activities,the great food provided at the Bridgeport Speedway concession stands for your Saturday meal or evening snack, rides on the Bridgeport Bandit bus which will take you and your family behind the scenes in the pit area to get an up close view of the action and preparation in the pits. Grab a Bridgeport T-shirt as a souvenir and a copy of the Bridgeport Bullet – the official program of the Bridgeport Speedway. Plus some additional fun things will be going on as well the Turbulence Monster Truck Ride Truck will be in the house courtesy of Monster Truck Throwdown, and Carazy Paint will be in the house doing face painting all night as well.
