Howard Holds Off Pauch Jr. For $6,000 New Egypt All Star Cup Victory

New Egypt, NJ – Oley, PA’s Duane Howard held off a hard charging Billy Pauch Jr. to pick off his second career All Star Cup victory at New Egypt Speedway worth $6,000 on Saturday night. It was Howard’s fourth career NES win.

“I’ve been around this game a long time and to beat Billy here at his home track is something special. We came here a little under-motored but we freed the car up and got some momentum up in the feature. I got to thank Norm with the 357, he gives us great equipment to come and race with. It’s really fun to come here and race and beat the weather tonight. Thanks to the fans for sticking this out tonight, what a great-prepared racetrack, you can run the bottom and the top”, said Howard post race.

Ryan Simmons led the field to the green flag but it would be Duane Howard leading lap one. Howard would lead the first 11 laps with third place starter Brandon Grosso in tow. The first caution of the event would fly on lap twelve when Stan Frankenfield came to a stop on the backstretch. Grosso would jump out to the lead on the restart and would pull away from the field at will. It would all come undone for Grosso as the yellow fell for the halfway break, it appears the motor broke and he headed to the pit area handing the lead back to Howard. On the ensuing restart from the halfway break Cale Ross would spin in turn two to bring out the caution. 12th place starter David VanHorn would enter the picture as he reached the third position on lap 33. Following the restart Howard would again jump out to the lead with fifth-place starter Billy Pauch Jr. on his back bumper on lap 34. Pauch Jr. would work the bottom to perfection while Howard rim-rode on the top of the speedway. On lap 35 the caution would fly again for Cale Ross who spun again in turns one and two. As leaders choice, Howard chose the outside for the restart and again jumped out to the lead with Pauch Jr. inching ever so closely lap after lap on the back of Norm Hansell’s No. 357. Pauch would appear to be faster but just couldn’t manage to pull even with Howard to complete the pass. Pauch Jr. would try the top of the Speedway on lap 50 in turns three and four but would lose a bit of ground as Howard would pull out to a four car length lead. Pauch Jr. would make one last effort on Howard but it was to no avail as Howard would pick up his second All Star Cup victory. Pauch Jr. would come home second with Wade Hendrickson, David VanHorn and Frank Cozze completing the top five.

Brian Spencer would hold off a hard charging Joey Biasi to win his fourth straight Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car event. 2019 track champion Rich Mellor, Heidi Hedin and Larry Drake would complete the top five.

Pennsylvania invader Branden Edgar picked up his first career New Egypt Speedway Sportsman win in just his second start. Art Liedl would come on late in the going to finish second with Jim Housworth Joseph Brown and Bill Liedtka completed the top five.

Joe Toth would win the rain shortened Crate Modified event. Toth who took the lead from Johnny Bangs on lap 10 said he would rather be lucky than good as he told Nick Leach post race had something break in the driveline and had to be pushed to Victory Lane. Ryan Godown Jr., Bangs, Jeremy Martino and Ryan Simmons rounded out the top five.

The final event of the 2019 schedule will be held on Saturday December 7th with our 22nd Annual Fall Swap Meet and Flea Market. Gates open to sell at 7:30am, it is free to browse and $15 to sell. Anything automotive is welcome to be sold.

New Egypt, NJ – 2019 Track Champions in all weekly support divisions were crowned on Saturday night at New Egypt Speedway during Hammer Electric Championship Night.

Brian Spencer (Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars), Art Liedl (Hammer Sportsman), Eric Palmer (Crate Modifieds), Bill Liedtka (Street Stocks) and Joe Garey Sr. (Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders) were winners on the evening. Rich Mellor (Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars), Steve Davis (Hammer Sportsman), Joe Toth (Crate Modified), Bill Liedtka (Street Stocks) and Joe Garey Sr. (Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders) all earned season-long point championships.

Brad Schaale led the early going in the 20-Lap Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature with Larry Drake in tow. Schaale would continue to lead past the halfway point where the caution would fly for a spinning Drake. Brian Spencer who was in search of his third straight win in the division would line up third and steal the lead from Schaale on the restart. Spencer would flat out dominate the last 1/3 of the event scoring his third consecutive win in the class. Heidi Hedin would come home second, Duane Nixon third with Drake rebounding to finish fourth and Brad Schaale completing the top-5. After clinching the title in the previous race, 2019 track champion Rich Mellor would suffer a blown motor in his heat race and would be unable to start the main event.

Art Liedl picked up his first New Egypt Speedway win of the season aboard the Mongiello No. 94m which saw the 2019 track championship decided on the last lap. Virtue of his rough past couple races Bob Lineman Jr. started the Hammer Sportsman feature from the pole position. Lineman would lead the event until the halfway point where Art Liedl would pass him on inside lane coming off of two on a lap 10 restart. Jim Housworth who was in control of the points race most of the event came home 2nd with Steve Davis finishing third quintessentially scoring the 2019 Hammer Sportsman championship when Bob Lineman Jr. slipped up coming off of turn two on the last lap. Ryan Heim completed the top five.

The Crate Modifieds had the closest point battle heading into Championship Night. Eric Palmer led wire-to-wire in the Crate Modified event but it didn’t come easy. Palmer jumped out to the early lead with 2019 rookie graduate Nick VanWickle in tow. The pair would run side by side virtually the entire distance of the 20 lap event with VanWickle rim riding around the top with Palmer using a variety of grooves to keep VanWickle at bay. At one point Palmer even clipped the inside guardrail coming off of turn four late in the going. Palmer would pick up his second win of the 2019 season at NES with VanWickle coming home second, a hard-charging Ryan Simmons came home third, coming up just shy of the Crate Modified points championship with Jeremy Martino and Joe Toth completing the top five and picking up his first career NES track championship. For Toth he wins the 2019 Crate Modified crown without winning a points paying race.

Following clinching the 2019 Street Stock title a few weeks back, Bill Liedtka picked up his eighth Street Stock win of 2019 over Mick Search, Todd Dige, Brian Spencer and Joe Reid.

Following an exciting last lap in where Dom Antonelli took the white flag as the leader in the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders. Antonelli and Joe King Jr. headed down the backstretch on the final circuit with King to his inside. King then made contact with Antonelli putting him backwards in turn four and taking the checkered flag first but due to his contact with Antonellli, New Egypt Speedway officials deemed that King was over-aggressive with his move handing the win to Joe Garey Sr. Garey who was the 2018 NES 4-Cylinder champion would win the 2019 championship by just two markers over Mike Fox.

New Egypt Speedway will be dark on Saturday September 28th but will be back in action in a big way on Saturday October 5th with the 3rd Annual Legends of the Fall 75 for the Big Block vs. Small Block Modified event that will pay $7,500 to the winner and $500 just to start the main event. A plethora of invaders are planning on coming into try and steal the money on October 5th. The Crate vs. Sportsman will also be on the docket in a 25-lap feature paying $1,000 to win. Pits and Grandstands will open at 3pm on the 5th, Hot Laps are scheduled for 5pm with the first green flag of the evening flying at 6pm! Adult admission (16+) is $28, Seniors (65+) are $25, Teens (12-15) & Military w/ID are $18 with Kids 11 & Under being FREE! Pit admission will be $40.

Sammons Scores Third While Pauch Jr. Wraps Up 2019 Title At New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ – Davey Sammons and Dakota Kessler led the 30-Lap Vahlco Wheels Modified feature to the green. Sammons would jump out the early lead and led the first six laps when Johnny Guarino, Cale Ross and Wade Hendrickson tangled in turn three. Sammons would jump back out to the lead on the ensuing restart with Kessler in tow. The second caution of the event would fly on lap ten when Kevin Vaclavicek, Dominick Buffalino and Blaine Bracelin got together in turn four. Sammons would again take command of the field on the restart. Brandon Grosso would take over the runner-up spot from Kessler after starting 10th on lap 13. The only slight hiccup that Sammons would have would be on lap 15 when his right side sail panel came loose and folded over which would not phase him one bit as he continued to set a torrid pace. Billy Pauch Jr. who started 12th would now be in the third position as him and Grosso battled for second while they chased after Sammons. 2018 track champion David VanHorn had now raced up from his 13th starting spot while him and Mike Butler put on a crowd-pleasing duel running side by side for the fourth position lap after lap toward the end of the event. They would all be no match for Sammons and he would lead wire-to-wire scoring his third Vahlco Wheels Modified main event of 2019 at New Egypt Speedway. Brandon Grosso would come home second with Billy Pauch Jr. third, David VanHorn fourth, and Mike Butler completing the top five.

“Two weeks ago we changed something on the car and had a motor issue, we got everything back in time for last week and found out we had a bent valve. So, we found something and it took us two weeks to run it. I drove as hard as I could. The track was really fun, I’ve won races where I had to run the bottom and it’s nice to win one where you have to get up on the wheel. We fought for this and we’re just happy to be here”, said Sammons post race.

After clinching the 2019 Vahlco Wheels Modified title the week prior, Billy Pauch Jr. was officially crowned champion this week, for Pauch Jr. it is his second championship in three years and four straight seasons where he hasn’t finished worse than second in points.

“It was a tough and challenging year, we really got going there. We really wanted to win tonight but hats off to Davey (Sammons), Our guys are awesome, this means a lot, I grew up here as a kid, we’ve had a good couple of years here and we have a lot of fun”, Pauch Jr. said following the race.

Brian Spencer picked up his second straight Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature over Rich Mellor, Larry Drake, Duane Nixon and Heidi Hedin. With his second place finish Rich Mellor has clinched the 2019 Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car championship.

Robbie Holzwarth scored his second Crate Modified win of 2019 and the second of his career over Ryan Heim, Sammy Martz Jr., Matt Miller and Johnny Bangs. The point battle is closer than ever with Joe Toth leading Johnny Bangs by just two points and Ryan Simmons 10 out of the lead in third heading into next week's final points race. The Crate Modified results are currently unofficial.

Rob Longo won the 15-lap feature for the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders over point leader Mike Fox, Joe Garey Sr., Dom Antonelli and Scott Dunn.

New Egypt Speedway is back in action next Saturday night when Hammer Electric presents Championship Night along with ¼ Midget Night. Track champions in the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, Hammer Sportsman, Crate Modifieds, Street Stocks and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders will all be crowned.
