Kressley Picks Up Top Ten at Bridgeport


Brett Kressley recorded his third top-ten finish of the season this past weekend at his Saturday night home-track, Bridgeport Speedway.

After bad luck striking him early on in the season with a few engine losses, Kressley is satisfied with his top ten performance.

“We made some changes for the heat race,” he said. “It didn’t go as well as I expected it to but we were lucky enough to advance a little bit and hold our own.”

Kressley started eighth in his heat race and advanced two spots to cross the line in sixth.

Kressley rolled out in eleventh for the 25-lap feature. “Early on in the race we were a little too tight and backed it up to fifteenth,” Kressley noted. “We slowly worked our way back through. We kept the car in one piece. It’s not what we had hoped for but we’ll take it.”

After 25 laps around the 5/8-mile high-banked dirt oval, Kressley finished the main event in ninth.

Kressley will be at Big Diamond Speedway Friday, May 12th and tentatively Grandview Speedway on Saturday, May 13th.

“I’m trying to make sure I get all of my ducks in a row for the Super DIRTcar Series race,” said Kressley about the Friends of Mike race on Tuesday, May 16th at Bridgeport Speedway. “I want to make sure to go through the car 100% this week to try and be as prepared as possible.”
