New Egypt, NJ (September 2, 2018) - At New Egypt Speedway's Twins Night
presented by Flemington Car & Truck Country Family of Dealerships, Bryan
Kuhl and Brandon Grosso each won a Modified feature. In the Mid-Atlantic
Sprint Series, Mark Bitner picked up the win in the scheduled feature while
Ryan Stillwaggon was victorious in the postponed main event originally
scheduled for April 14. The Crate Modified feature went to John Criscione
while Jermain Godshall took top honors in the main event for the Larry's Hot
Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars.

After several attempts, the first of two 20-lap features for the Modifieds
got underway with Rocco Infante on top. On the third revolution, Bryan Kuhl
slipped by John Pakenham to move into second. By lap five, Kuhl was
challenging Infante for the lead. At the halfway point with Infante still
in charge, the caution flag waved for a tangle between Rich Rutski and PJ
Oliver. On the ensuing restart, Kuhl bolted past Infante and ascended to the
front of the pack with Infante and Chad Barney next in line. With six laps
left, Barney drove by Infante for second as Kuhl was stretching out his
advantage. Although the margin between Kuhl and Barney would close in the
final laps, Kuhl went unchallenged to register his first career Modified
win. Barney's strong run netted him second. With Infante finishing third,
Pakenham came home in fourth. Brian Papiez was fifth after starting the race
in twelfth.

With the top eleven finishers inverted for the second 20-lap Modified
feature, polesitter Brandon Grosso grabbed the lead with Matt Stangle and
Kevin Vaclavicek in tow. Following a trio of cautions, Grosso was still on
top with seven circuits completed and Vaclavicek was in second. Stangle
regained the runner-up position on lap eight just before the yellow lights
illuminated for Rich Rutski. At the halfway point, Grosso was still pacing
the field with Stangle in second, Davey Sammons in third and David VanHorn
in fourth. On the eleventh revolution, the yellow flag waved for the final
time for an incident between JR Fulper and Ryan Krachun. When racing
resumed, the top two of Grosso and Stangle remained intact and VanHorn
advanced into third as a mechanical issue forced a slowing Sammons to drop
out of the race. With five to go, Grosso was cruising along as VanHorn was
reeling in Stangle. Grosso would lead every lap of the contest to score his
second win of the year. VanHorn got by Stangle with two circuits left to
finish in second. With Stangle taking third, Vaclavicek was fourth and Chad
Barney was fifth. The Modified heats were won by Brandon Grosso, Chad Barney
and Davey Sammons. JR Fulper won the consolation race.

Polesitter Mark Bitner led from start to finish to win the 20-lap main event
for the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Cars. The victory was the first of the year for
Bitner in the series and his eighth career checkered flag at New Egypt
Speedway. The runner-up spot was claimed by Andy Best. Austin Bishop
completed the race in third. Eddie Wagner came from his eighth starting
position to finish in fourth. Fifth was taken by Jason Dunn. Jeff Geiges and
Austin Bishop were victors in the qualifying races for the Mid-Atlantic
Sprint Cars.

In the 20-lap feature for the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Cars from April 14, Ryan
Stillwaggon overtook Jeff Geiges with two circuits remaining and pulled away
to capture his first career New Egypt Speedway checkered flag. The victory
was the second of the year for Stillwaggon in the series. Geiges, who led
the opening eighteen tours, finished second. Third went to Mark Bitner.
Austin Bishop was fourth and Eddie Wagner came home in fifth.

After taking the lead from Aaron Weaver on lap five, John Criscione motored
away from his rivals to claim the top prize in the 20-lap Crate Modified
feature. This was Criscione's third career victory. Weaver held on for
second with Joe Toth taking third. Twelfth place starting Connor King was
fourth. Eric Palmer completed the top five. John Criscione and Eric Palmer
took the Crate Modified heat contests.

In the 20-lap main event for the Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast
Wingless Sprint Cars, Jermain Godshall powered out of the final corner of
the last lap to edge out Duane Nixon for his second victory of the year.
With Nixon taking second after leading nineteen tours of the race, Brian
Spencer was third. Joey Biasi, the heat race winner, wound up in fourth and
Heidi Hedin was fifth.
