Earlier this season, Joe Infante owner of Precision Hydraulic & Oil announced that the company would present a special race for the Crate Sportsman division at the new Bridgeport Motorsports Park but just like everything else in the world it was never able to be scheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic which delayed the season at the south Jersey dirt oval. After conversations with BMP owner Doug Rose, the race was set for November 7th as part of Wildcard Weekend.
The race will be officially called the “Precision Hydraulics & Oil Sportsman Invitational”. The winner of the 30-lap race will receive a $3,000 first-place prize. Laps for the race will be on sale at $30 per lap with all money going to the drivers. Henry’s Exhaust has also signed on to sponsor the hard charger award for the race. Other prizes and contingency’s will be announced as the race date draws closer.
Precision Hydraulic & Oil along with owner Joe Infante has been involved on the local racing scene for many years and you have seen the companies name and logo on many cars throughout the northeast over the years. Why the company’s logo has been on cars in many different divisions, it is the Crate Sportsman division that has always held a special place for owner Joe Infante.
“The Sportsman class has always been special to me,” cited Infante. “We wanted to do something and put on a show to give back to our racing family and what a better way to do it then to highlight the Sportsman division. I would like to say thank you to Doug and Brittany Rose for allowing us this opportunity at their new and unbelievable awesome track. The racing this season at Bridgeport Motorsports Park has been unbelievable in all divisions but especially in the Crate division. The cars race all over the track and it is not uncommon to see cars two, three and sometimes even four wide throughout the race. It is an honor to be a part of what Doug has done here and if you haven’t visited the track yet, you are missing out on something special.”

Drivers will have to be full-time crate sportsman racer (No Modified Drivers)
