Alex Bright is no stranger to big races and winning big races. This weekend the Collegeville driver will embark on a new challenge and chase the $10,000 prize at the end of the Garden State 100 for the All Pro SpeedSTRs fueled by Vp Racing Fuels.
Bright finished strong in the previous $10,000 to win race held at Selinsgrove Speedway with a podium finish for car owner Ralph Rehrig. Now Bright will pilot a car for Robert Hummer of Hummer Motorsports that is normally driven by Billy Pauch Sr. Bright is fresh off a USAC East Coast Sprint Car title with Hummer as the car owner.
This season Bright won eleven times in twenty-two races with the Sprint Cars plus USAC National Series starts with success.
Bright has quite a few big micro sprint wins to on his resume, was the high point car at the Dirt Track at Indianapolis Motor Speedway’s BC 39, and of course has been a preliminary night winner at the Chili Bowl in a midget.
The Garden State 100 weekend at Bridgeport Motorsports Park is this weekend.
Saturday November 13th warmups will start at noon for the 602 Sportsman running topless, 4 Cylinders, Slingshots, and SpeedSTRs on the big track and the Wingless 270 and 600 Micro Sprints and Junior Slingshots on the ¼ Mile track.
