Swedesboro, NJ — Rico Abreu knew what he needed to do. He had to win.
Abreu did exactly that on Tuesday night at the High Limit Sprint Car Series race at Bridgeport Speedway. This is Abreu’s third win on the season.
“It’s really special racing at this track,” Abreu said after the win. “It’s a really fast track. Starting out in the front was really important for us. My guys, Ricky Warner, Zack Middlebrooks, and the rest of the team did an unbelievable job. They executed the balance of my car. I was very fortunate to get past the fast cars.”

The California native also won at Grandview Speedway in Bechtelsville, Pennsylvania on July 26th. Then, almost a month later, Abreu won at Huset’s Speedway in Brandon, South Dakota on August 15th.
Despite the win, Abreu still trails High Limits co-owner Kyle Larson, who is the points leader with 933 points. Abreu is second with 918 points.
Larson co-owns the promotion with World of Outlaws driver Brad Sweet.
The championship will be determined at Lincoln Park Speedway on October 10th. The season finale will take place in Putnamville, Indiana.
“I haven’t really followed the points a whole lot,” Abreu said. “Whatever happens, happens. I’m not too worried about it.”
