Slingshot Double Header this Weekend offers different flair

The Slingshots are gearing up for the Garden State 100 weekend!


The racing for the Slingshots will be a double header weekend.


Saturday the All Star Slingshots Slingshots will compete in the “Slinger Derby” running 12 laps on the big track while the junior Slingshots will run the ¼ mile track. Both classes will run hot laps, heat races, and the A Main.


The recommended starting gear for Saturday will be a 46.


On Sunday the Slingshots will take on the “Roval” that will mix both the ¼ mile track and the big track at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in a road course type event. To run this race drivers will need to use the Aluminum wheels on both the right and left rear of the car.


Recommendations for the race include a 52-54 gear, 20lb of air pressure in both rear tires, and moving the rear wheels out.


There is a planned practice on Saturday night for the Roval event on Sunday following the Saturday show.


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.


On Sunday racing will return with warmups again starting at noon. The 602 Sportsman will once again be running topless and will be joined by the 4 Cylinders for the second day in a row on the big track. The ¼ Mile track will return to racing Sunday as well with the Wingless 600 Micro Sprints, Junior Slingshots, and All Star Slingshots on the “Roval”.


Sunday will also include the $10,000 to win 100 Lap “Garden State 100” for the All Pro SpeedSTRs. This is the first time a long-distance open wheel race has been run in New Jersey in many years.
