Bridgeport Speedway is a dirt speedway located in the community of Bridgeport in Logan Township, Gloucester County, New Jersey, that consists of a 3/8 mile 0.375-mile (0.604 km) high-banked oval and a 1/4 mile 0.25-mile (0.40 km) oval located within the bigger track. The Super DIRTcar Series races at the track. Jason Leffler died at an accident at the track.


Doug Hoffman owned the track until his death in 2013. A team ran the track until Doug Rose was named the owner in 2019. Rose saw the construction of a new 3/8 mile outer track before the 2020 season.

Weekly racing divisions

The speedway features big block modifieds, crate/sportsman modifieds, and outlaw stocks every Saturday night throughout the racing season. In addition, sprint cars race at Bridgeport Speedway on various dates during the racing season. Bridgeport Speedway features other racing divisions including slingshots, mod lites, stage-1 mods, and vintage cars.
