EDDIE WAGNER LEADS THE DELAWARE AUTO EXCHANGE MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES TO DELAWARE INTERNATIONAL SPEEDWAY SATURDAY MAY 5TH
DELMAR, DE

Eddie Wagner of Newfield, NJ is beginning the 2018 season just where he left of in 2017, currently leading the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series points chase as they head south to Delaware International Speedway on Saturday, May 5th. Wagner, who has won the last two MASS events at Bridgeport Speedway, on the 5/8th mile and most recently on the 3/8th mile track, is the currently defending his 2017 MASS Championship title. He is usually the force to beat at the South Jersey facility and hopes to bring his success to a different track, starting this weekend.

“Last weekend was honestly one of the most fun races that I have ever been a part of,” Wagner said. “Hopefully we can build off of that finish, and have a strong run at Delaware, a track that I love and have been to a lot when I raced URC. Mark Cathell and his staff at DIS do a great job and have been a pleasure to work with, so I hope we can put a good show on for them, and of course the fans!”

Tim Tanner Jr., last year’s Delaware International Speedway winner, is looking to defend his 2017 victory after a top ten finish last week at Bridgeport.

“I am excited to be heading back down to Delaware this weekend,” Tanner explained. “My family will be with me and I’m really happy to be able to have them in the pits area with us! I learned a lot from last year’s show, so I look forward to applying what we know now, and we’ll see if we can make it to victory lane again!”

Bordentown, NJ’s Larry Mc Vay, who earned the hard charger award for his efforts in going from 20th to 3rd at Bridgeport, is slated to join the hefty field of drivers committed to make the tow to the Southern Delaware ½ mile oval. Jeff Geiges, Tyler Reinhardt, Rick Stief, Bryant Davis, Joe Kay, Scott Frack, Brendon Poff, Zack Burd, David Graber, Harris Kohen, Austin Bishop, John Yanek, along with rookies Jason Dunn, Chad Connor, Dan Leaper, Dom Melair, Cj Faison, and Reid Mitchell are all entries to expect this Saturday night with more showing support in the coming days.

In addition to the advertised purse, MASS’ associate sponsor Engler Machine and Tool will be sponsoring the front row starters for the feature events with two free raffle tickets for the $3,800 injection. Thayer Performance will be handing out a BRAND NEW Hoosier Racing Tire Racesaver Spec Right Rear tire to the Hard Charger of the night. Also, Kelly Racing Fuels, the official Fuel sponsor of the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series, will be beginning their “Hard Charger of the Month” campaign this weekend at DIS, and information on that will be released this week.

Additional contingency awards include $50 cash to each heat race winner presented by Professional Design Services, Freiberger Excavating and Bruce’s Auto Body, a $50 gift certificate to Keizer Sprint Wheels for the worst pill drawl of the night, the $25 Bitner Automotive 'Lightning Fast Time of the Night' bonus, 5 gallons of fuel to the winner of the A-Main courtesy of Kelly Racing Fuels, a $25 Todd's Performance gift certificate, and the CRC Industries Brakleen feature redraw concludes the list of extras up for grabs for members of the Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series.

PAUCH IS VICTORIOUS AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY'S 2018 SEASON OPENER

New Egypt, NJ (April 15, 2018) - On Opening Night at New Egypt Speedway,
presented by Oliver Communications Group, Billy Pauch, Jr. was victorious in
the extra distance 40-lap Modified feature. Pat Wall topped the field in the
Hammer Sportsman race. The Street Stock feature was won by Bill Liedtka.
Ryan Heim took the checkered flag in the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie
contest.

As the 40-lap double point Modified feature got underway, polesitter Steve
Davis sped to the front with JR Fulper and Billy Pauch, Jr. next in line.
With three tours completed, Pauch, Jr. had motored into second with Brandon
Grosso advancing to third. On lap four, Pauch, Jr. was just about to take
command of the race when the yellow flag waved for Brian Papiez. On the
ensuing restart, Pauch, Jr. used the outside groove to drive by Davis and
into the lead. After several caution periods and ten circuits in the books,
Pauch, Jr. was still in control with Danny Bouc, Grosso, Dominick Buffalino,
Jimmy Horton and Davis in tow. Due to the total amount of circuits under
green and yellow flag conditions, a fuel stop took place at lap seventeen
with Pauch, Jr., Grosso, Bouc, David VanHorn and Kevin Vaclavicek in the top
five positions. When racing got back underway, Pauch, Jr. retained his edge
with Grosso holding onto second and VanHorn zipping into third. While
cleanup of a lap eighteen multi-car tangle was occurring, Grosso went
pitside and relinquished second place to VanHorn. Pauch, Jr. repelled a
strong bid by Van Horn for the top running spot as action resumed. By the
twenty-fifth tour, Pauch, Jr. was beginning to pull away from the pack with
Bouc in second and VanHorn in third. As the leader was approaching the back
of the field and with only six circuits remaining, the yellow lights
illuminated for a slowing Ryan Krachun. On the ensuing restart, Pauch, Jr.
kept his lead with Bouc and VanHorn trying to track him down. Over the final
laps, several minor incidents brought out the yellow flag including the
final caution of the contest with one circuit to go. During this period, the
second place running Bouc went to the pits with a right rear flat. On the
last lap shootout, Pauch, Jr., the 2017 division champion, held off VanHorn
to earn the win. With VanHorn taking second, Modified rookie TJ Lilly
finished in third place. Grosso rebounded to take fourth and Vaclavicek's
strong performance earned him a fifth place finish. The Modified heat
winners were Steve Davis, David VanHorn and Brandon Grosso. PJ Oliver was
the victor in the consolation race.

In the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature, Pat Wall took the lead from Bill
Liedtka on the eighth circuit and paced the field for the remaining distance
to score his fifth career victory. Bob Lineman, Jr., who chased Wall over
the final half of the race, was the runner-up. Cale Ross drove up from his
twelfth place starting spot to come home in third. Billy Osmun, the 2017
Hammer Sportsman champion, completed the race in fourth while Kyle Kania
finished in fifth. David Burns, Cale Ross and Pat Wall won the qualify
events for the Hammer Sportsman. The consolation race winner was Shaun
Ratchford.

Bill Liedtka, the 2017 Street Stock Champion, opened up the defense of his
title by taking the 15-lap Street Stock feature. Jimmy Avery came home in
second. Third place was grabbed by Lee Allen. Jon Meyer and Mick Search
rounded out the top five.

In the 8-lap Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie feature, Ryan Heim led
every step of the way to record the win. Sam Martz, Jr charged from his
sixth starting spot to claim the runner-up spot. Third went to Bobby
Holzwarth. Eric Conk finished fourth and fifth was taken by Kevin Borden,
Jr.

Due to a curfew, the Mid Atlantic Sprint Series and 4-Cylinder feature
events were postponed and will be completed at a future date. The
Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series heat races were claimed by Jeff Geiges, Mark
Bitner, Ryan Stillwagon and Austin Bishop. Logan Diehl took the checkered
flag in the consolation event.

Racing continues at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday, April 21 with the
Modifieds, Larry's Hot Rods & Harley's Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars,
Hammer Sportsman, Crate Modifieds and the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab
Rookie Sportsman in competition. Pit gates unlock at 3:00 p.m. with the

SIXTEEN-YEAR-OLD DAN LEAPER LOOKS TO GET ROOKIE SEASON UNDERWAY AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY WITH THE MID-ATLANTIC SPRINT SERIES

DOUGLASVILLE, PA ... Douglasville, PA’s Dan Leaper will pilot his number 24L Triple X Race Components chassis at the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series season opener on Saturday, April 14th at New Egypt Speedway. This will be the first race of Leaper’s 2018 Geiswite Creations Rookie of the Year campaign with MASS, as he joins the growing list of novice teams joining the series this season.

“We plan on running the full MASS schedule, and I hope we can learn some as well as prove myself this year,” Dan says. “After getting some decent finishes under my belt, I hope we can eventually win some heat races, and ultimately the Rookie of the Year honor”.

Leaper began his career at the ripe age of five-years-old, racing quarter midgets at Honeybrook Speedway. At age ten, Dan stepped up into a 270 Micro Sprint and then a year later a 600 Micro Sprint, competing at Linda’s Speedway, Greenwood Valley Action Track, and Hamlin Speedway before graduating to a full-sized Racesaver 305 Sprint Car in 2017.

“We really didn’t plan on racing 305’s or a full-sized Sprinter as soon as we did,” Leaper admitted. “Pat and Zack Bealer offered us a really great deal however, by trading all of our 600 Micro Sprint equipment for all of their 305 stuff, and my dad couldn’t refuse it, so here we are!”

Participating in two MASS events last season, each taking place at Grandview Speedway Inc. in 2017, Leaper is excited to return to the famous 1/3-mile-high banked oval because he enjoys the banking and the thrill of the car getting around the speedway as it does.

“This year we have some returning as well as some new sponsors who I would like to thank for helping us out this season,” Dan recalls. “APS Powdercoating, Rick’s Service Center, Carfagno Chevrolet, Tri-County Performance, Tri-County Chiropractic, Christman Remodeling, KB Bradshaw, West Fabrication Inc., Birdsboro Napa, Tim’s Shock Lab and my crew which consists of my parents, Steve, Andy Anderson, and Toot will help make this year possible.

Leaper, along with five other committed 2018 rookies, Jason Dunn, Chloe Andreas, Chad Connor, Dom Melair and Cj Faison will all be present on April 14th at New Egypt Speedway, for the start of MASS’ second operating season. 2017 Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series Champion Eddie Wagner, 2017 Rookie of the Year Tom Carberry and additional talents including Mark Bitner, Tim Tanner Jr., Jeff Geiges, Craig Pellegrini Jr., David Bonner, Brendon Poff, Samantha Lieberman, and Robert Burd are all planning on attending the season opener.
