Keith Hoffman Takes Over Bridgeport Lease
BRIDGEPORT, N.J. – Following up on his brother’s dream of developing Bridgeport Speedway into a premier racing facility, Keith Hoffman has assumed the remaining term of a two year lease and will operate the South Jersey complex in 2013 following the death of Doug Hoffman.
In addition, Dave Adams is returning to Bridgeport Speedway and will be the promoter for the upcoming season.
“I am honored to carry on Doug’s dream of running Bridgeport Speedway,” said Keith Hoffman.
Hoffman and Adams met with track owner Brian Ramey recently to complete the deal. A tentative schedule for the 2013 season has been created and will mimic the lineup from last year. On Friday nights, Micro-Sprints (270cc and 600cc) and 4-Cylinder Stock Cars will battle it out on the quarter-mile oval.
Action on Saturday nights will switch to the big 5/8th mile track and will feature big-block modifieds, crate sportsmen, and outlaw stock cars. Hoffman and Adams are in the initial phase of supplementing the tentative schedule with additional events.
The opening race for the season will be on Saturday, March 30 with “The 60 Over Special” Race of Champions big-block modified race in honor of Doug Hoffman. This 60-lap event will mark the first event of the Big Block Modified Poker Series for 2013. The crate sportsmen are on the card with the first hand of their Poker Series and will be joined by the full-fendered action of the outlaw stock cars.
Hoffman and Adams along with several Bridgeport Speedway employees will greet fans and racers alike at the upcoming 2013 Motorsports Show at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, Pa., on Jan. 18 through Jan. 20.
