THE JERSEY RUSH VIII IS A NO GO FOR 2018, EVENT TO RETURN TO NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY IN 2019

NEW EGYPT, NJ (August 1, 2018) – For seven years, the Pioneer Pole Buildings Jersey Rush thrilled race fans with an exciting double header of 410 Sprints and Modifieds however, the forecast of threatening weather on Tuesday night, July 24 stopped the eighth running of the event. After scrambling to find a date that would accommodate race teams, tracks, and fans, the Jersey Rush promotional team announced today that the 2018 running of the event will not be rescheduled.

"We hoped to find an opening in the racing schedule that would make things easy for both the race teams and race fans," Co-Promoter Bob Miller stated. "With the amount of midweek shows it was difficult to find a date that didn't conflict with another event."

The Jersey Rush will return to New Egypt Speedway in 2019 and will carry the sponsorship of Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Jersey Rush is co-promoted by Lenny, Danny, and Davey Sammons and special event promoter Bob Miller.

We thank everyone for their past support of the Jersey Rush and we especially want to thank the many drivers that were pre-entered for the event. The show was sure to deliver one of the strongest roster of competitors in the history of the event. We’re looking forward to doing it again in 2019 at New Egypt.

RAIN STOPS PIONEER POLE BUILDINGS JERSEY RUSH VIII AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY NIGHT, MAKE-UP DATE SOON TO BE ANNOUNCED

A weather front stuck in New Jersey for three days with more to come has forced the postponement of the Jersey RUSH VIII set to take place at the New Egypt Speedway on Tuesday night, July 24.

Rain and thunderstorms, which entered the area on Saturday forcing postponement of many racing events including a program slated for New Egypt, failed to leave the area on Monday producing wet grounds. With the front expected to stay through Wednesday, promoters Bob Miller, Len, Dan and Davey Sammons decided it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel the event ahead of time to save unneeded travel expense and loss of work.

“We are especially disappointed losing this race date as we may have assembled the strongest car count and name drivers since the start of the Jersey Rush back in 2011,” said Len Sammons. “We were hoping to see some possibility of a break in the weather, but heavy storms continued on Monday night giving the track crew no chance in producing the excellent racing surface the drivers and fans deserve.”

Jersey Rush VIII combines the only New Jersey appearance of 410 Sprint Cars, plus Modifieds and Sportsman for a full night of action on the racy D-shaped clay oval. The promotional group is actively looking for a make-up date to ensure that we do not have a conflict with other special events.

THUNDER ON THE HILL RACE RESULTS

HOT SUMMER NIGHT LANDS KYLE LARSON IN GRANDVIEW SPEEDWAY VICTORY LANE, POCKETS $7,000

JEFF STRUNK STUNS THE FIELD WINNING MODIFIED MAIN FROM 23RD PLACE STARTING SPOT

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 3, 2018) – It was an Independence Day celebration of speed as a capacity crowd witnessed the NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series action at the Grandview Speedway will star filled field of local and national driving stars. NASCAR Cup Series driver Kyle Larson invaded to claim the Pennsylvania 410 Sprint Car Speedweek victory – round five of the 10-race stretch, while Jeff Strunk picked up the win in the NASCAR 358 Modified main event. The event was presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings as Larson collected $7,000 for his win and Strunk earned an attractive $3,000 first place prize in the modified feature.

“Such an awesome crowd tonight,” Larson said in Victory Lane celebrations. “It seemed like a pretty exciting race, at least from my seat, every time I went to the top I’d see Greg Hodnett pull to my inside.”

A blind re-draw put James McFadden and Greg Hodnett on the front row of the 35 lap main event. Hodnett – a 9-time Thunder on the Hill winner – quickly jumped to the lead. Larson, who started in the fourth position, moved into contention on the third circuit.

With a 24-car starting field on the one-third-mile, lapped traffic became a factor on the sixth lap, with Larson taking the low-groove and Hodnett taking the high-side to split a lapped car. Larson powered around the bottom claiming the top spot.

The race’s first caution flew on lap 9, while circling the track under yellow James McFadden – running in the third position – pulled pitside to change a right rear flat tire.

Larson took command on the restart with Hodnett giving chase, the two diced high-and-low ticking off laps one-by-one, with Larson riding right up against the outside wall.

“It was such a fine line running right up that high, there’s such a risk of getting into the wall. I was a little nervous,” Larson offered.

With Larson running an extreme outside groove, Hodnett peeked to the inside of Larson’s No. 57 machine – before the two swapped lanes with Larson moving to the bottom and Hodnett on the top.

Then came Christopher Bell.

The 23-year-old Sprint Car ace turned NASCAR driver, used momentum and lapped traffic to close on the leaders forming a three-car fight for the win – but ultimately Bell’s night would end drastically bunching up the field with a right rear flat and collecting Trey Starks.

Larson outgunned Hodnett on the Lap 32 restart leading the final three circuits and collecting a $7,000 payday and his second consecutive NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Series Speedweek victory.

Hodnett would finish in second position, followed by a pair of NASCAR Cup Series superstars Kasey Kahne and Tony Stewart in third and fourth respectively. Danny Dietrich finished in fifth moving from a 12th place starting position.

From a 23rd starting position, Jeff Strunk led the Glenn Hyneman-owned No. 126 to a $3,000 NASCAR 358 Modified payday.

Ryan Watt jumped to the early lead from his front row starting position followed closely by Jared Umbenhaue.. A lap 3 yellow flag slowed the field for the first time.

On the restart, Watt continued on in the top spot with Umbenhauer in second and Craig VonDohren moving into the third position.

The top-three competitors battled side-by-side for the lead, with Umbenhauer slipping past Watt on multiple occasions but unable to hold the top spot.

Lap-by-lap Watt maintained a command on the field with Umbenhauer and VonDohren forming a three car chase for the checkered.

A lap 21 restart offered Strunk an opportunity to pounce, first on VonDohren and then on Umbenhauer one lap later.

Strunk raced outside Watt’s No. 14W on the 23rd lap and finally completed the pass after multiple attempts. Strunk would go on to claim his 13th NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series win and his first since 2015.

Watt settled for second place, Craig VonDohren finished in third, Jared Umbenahuer in fourth, and Doug Manmiller in the fifth position.

Thunder Notes

31 410 Sprint Cars and 27 Modifieds were signed in for competition.

Anthony Macri set the 410 Sprint Car Quick Time with a lap of 12.553. Macri set the time on his first circuit around the Speedway, before flipping during his second lap. Macri would go on to get the car repaired for the first heat race.

This marked Kyle Larson’s third Grandview Speedway appearance. Larson finished in 3rd at the 2012 Speedweek event that Greg Hodnett won and was the defending race winner after a 2017 victory. Larson was joined in victory lane by his son, Owen.

Former NASCAR Cup Series Champion Tony Stewart was the first 410 Sprint Car to take Time Trials. Stewart clocked in at 7th on the speed charts with a 12.751

Sprint Car Heat Races were won by Aaron Reutzel, Trey Starks, Tony Stewart, and Kasey Kahne

Modified Heat Races were won by Brian Papiez, Ron Kline, and Ryan Watt.

The Ben Moyer Memorial Hard Charger award was presented to Danny Dietrich collecting a $750 payday. NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Officials matched the $750 payoff and awarded it to Brandon Rahmer for gaining the most spots in the A-main event.

Jeff Strunk maintains his position as the winningest driver in NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series Modified history scoring his 13th Modified feature event win.

NAPA AUTO PARTS THUNDER ON THE HILL RACING SERIES CONTINUES. . .

410 SPRINT CARS ROLL INTO GRANDVIEW ON TUESDAY, JULY 3; CAN KYLE LARSON DEFEND HIS RACE WIN?

BECHTELSVILLE, PA (July 2, 2018) – The stage is set, the biggest ten days in Pennsylvania Sprint Car racing is in full swing and a stop at the ‘The hill in Bechtelsville,’ is on the agenda for the 410 Sprint Car racers, known as the Pennsylvania Posse.

NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series brings Pennsylvania Sprint Car Speedweek presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings to Grandview Speedway on Tuesday, July 3 – a prelude to a huge holiday celebration. The 410 Sprints and 358 NASCAR Modifieds make up this huge Doubleheader that gets underway at 7:30 PM

After the first three races, 22-year-old, Trey Starks sits at the top of the Speedweek series standings -- after scoring the opening night victory at the Williams Grove Speedway – holding the lead over Brock Zearfoss, Freddie Rahmer, Greg Hodnett, and Lucas Wolfe.

Invaders like NASCAR Cup driver Kyle Larson – the winner of last year’s Grandview Speedway Speedweek event – and Christopher Bell are well known for their Sprint Car prowess and plan to knock down the Posse regulars. Christopher Bell will be driving the Kevin Swindell sprint car.

You can’t count out 410 favorites like Ryan Smith and Danny Dietrich, who are heading to Berks County in full force searching for a NAPA Auto Parts Thunder on the Hill Racing Series checkered flag.

The Sprint Cars will compete in a 35-lap event with $7,000 winner’s share and will be joined by the NASCAR 358 Modifieds – Grandview’s mainstay weekly division for a 30-lap, $3,000-to-win double main event. Modified drivers Craig VonDohren, Jeff Strunk, Brett Kressley, Ryan Watt and Billy Pauch Jr., have indicated their intentions to compete on Tuesday evening.

As a bonus for the evening, the Low Down and Dirty Radio Show in partnership with the Beerhill Gang have created a 410 Sprint Car Hard Charger bonus, named after friend and fan of Grandview Speedway Ben Moyer. The Ben Moyer, Hard Charger award, will be presented to the 410 Sprint Car driver advancing the most positions in Tuesday Night’s A-Main. Race fan donations raised money for the prize.
