FINDLAY, Ohio – official series release —
Bedford Speedway is one of the most historic race tracks in the United States.
Racing has been contested at the five-eighths-mile oval in Bedford, Pa., since 1936 and the Renegade Sprints will join that prestigious list in 2015.
“We are very happy to have the Renegades at Bedford,” Bedford Speedway Promoter Joe Padula said. “Shane (Helms) and his crew are putting together a fantastic series. The drivers that have committed to them are some of the best in the business and we are thrilled to welcome them to Bedford. Bedford has a long history of sprint car racing and we are looking forward to expanding on that in 2015 with the Renegades.”
Bedford Speedway spent its first three decades as a special event track before weekly programs began in the mid-1960s.
“Racing at Bedford Speedway dates back almost 80 years,” Renegade Sprints President Shane Helms said. “As a fan of the sport it’s really neat to look at the history of the track. I’m proud that the Renegade Sprints will be added to that next season.”
Bedford Speedway is the sixth track in Pennsylvania to book a Renegade Sprints event in 2015.
