Bedford Speedway To Continue Racing With New Promoter

Bedford County Agricultural Society and the Bedford Fairgrounds are excited to announce a new partnership with race promoter Joe Padula Jr. of Hagerstown,

Md. The announcement comes as good news to the southcentral Pennsylvania racing community after speculation that there may not be racing in Bedford in 2012. Now it appears the show will go on, and weekly Friday night racing will continue in Bedford!

Padula is currently the promoter of the Thunder Valley Raceway in Central City. His father, Joe Padula Sr., promoted racing in Bedford from 1988-1999 during the heyday of the historic track. The Bedford County Speedway celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2011, and officials are excited to begin the next chapter in the Speedway’s future.
