BUTLER REGISTERS HIS SECOND VAHLCO WHEELS MODIFIED FEATURE WIN OF THE YEAR

New Egypt, NJ (August 11, 2019) – On Toms River Night at New Egypt Speedway, Mike Butler registered his second Vahlco Wheels Modified feature win of the year. The Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series main event went to Tim Tanner Jr. John Criscione was the victor in the Hammer Sportsman feature. Brian Spencer topped the field in the Street Stock race.

As the 30-lap feature began for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds, Billy Osmun grabbed the lead with Cale Ross, Pat Wall, Rich Rutski and Blaine Bracelin next in line. By the third circuit and just before the first yellow flag waved for a multi-car tangle, Wall passed Ross for second with eighth place starting Mike Butler advancing into fifth. On the ensuing restart, Osmun maintained his edge with Butler motoring to the runner-up spot. Following another caution period on the fourth tour, Butler bolted to the front as action resumed with Wall in second and Osmun in third. Just as action was beginning to heat up on the fifth lap, Dakota Kessler’s ride came to a stop near the pit entrance and the yellow lights illuminated for the final time. When green flag racing returned, Butler fended off Wall to keep the lead with Osmun running in third. At the halfway point of the contest, Butler was increasing his margin over Wall and Osmun with Ryan Krachun in fourth and Danny Bouc in fifth. On lap sixteen, Bouc slipped by Krachun to move into fourth. With ten circuits left, the top two of Butler and Wall had pulled away from their rivals with Butler having a comfortable advantage. Over the final moments of the contest, Butler went unchallenged as he scored his second career Vahlco Wheels Modified feature win. Wall’s strong run netted him second place. With Osmun finishing third, Bouc came home in fourth after starting eleventh. Fifth place was claimed by Krachun. The winners in the Vahlco Wheels Modified heat races were Blaine Bracelin and Cale Ross.

In the 20-lap main event for the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series, Tim Tanner Jr. powered by Tyler Brehm on a lap six restart to take his second checkered flag of the season. With Brehm finishing second, Mark Bitner completed the race in third. Eddie Wagner’s last lap pass earned him fourth place over Ricky DiEva. Jason Dunn and Mark Bitner won the Delaware Auto Exchange Mid-Atlantic Sprint Series qualifying events.

John Criscione led from start to finish to win the non-stop 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature. The victory was the first for Criscione in the division. Tenth place starting Bob Lineman Jr. finished in second place. With Joseph Brown in third, fourth place was captured by David Burns. Will Dupree completed the top five. John Criscione and Art Liedl were victorious in the Hammer Sportsman heat races.

After taking the lead from Vern McLaughlin on the seventh circuit, Brian Spencer paced the field the rest of the way to snare the victory in the 15-lap Street Stock race. The win was the second in a row for Spencer. Ninth place starting Mick Search took the runner-up spot. Third place went to Bill Liedtka. McLaughlin crossed the finish line in fourth. After an early race visit to the pits, Todd Dige came back through the field to take fifth.

Grosso Gets Job Done At New Egypt; Simmons Mr. Crate Modified 2019

New Egypt, NJ – Belle Mead, NJ’s Brandon Grosso picked up his first New Egypt Speedway victory of 2019 on Saturday night during Jeep Night 2. Ryan Simmons was crowned Mr. Crate Modified for 2019 by winning the Mr. Crate Classic while Rich Mellor picked up his sixth Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature with Dominick Antonelli scoring his first career Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinder feature.

Blaine Bracelin jumped out to the early lead and would lead the first five laps of the Modified feature with Danny Bouc in tow after getting to the second position on lap two with Brandon Grosso following him up through the field. Grosso would wrestle the lead away from Bracelin on a lap five restart with Bouc now in second followed closely by Billy Pauch Jr. and last week’s winner David Van Horn. Pauch Jr. would move in to the runner-up spot on lap six and began to chase down Grosso. Pauch Jr. would officially lead lap nine by a bumper over Grosso with an outside pass but a yellow would fall negating the pass before the field was past the stripe handing the lead back to Grosso. On the ensuing restart Grosso would take the outside lane and pulled away to a five-car length lead over Pauch Jr. The field would encounter lapped traffic at the halfway mark, as Brandon Grosso’s lead would fluctuate as they diced through the back of the field. Finally with just three laps to go Pauch Jr. would shrink the lead to just a couple car lengths closing even more with two to go, but it would be to no avail as Brandon Grosso would take the win by just two car lengths over Pauch Jr. David VanHorn would come home third with Danny Bouc and Davey Sammons rounding out the top five.

“On that restart I picked the top after he was trying to play games, I just had to play some of my own games and I got away from him and that was it”, said Grosso post race. “These guys that race here are tough no matter where you start, its tough to beat these guys. Once I got the lead I felt comfortable up top so I just stayed there.”

Ryan Simmons was the eventual winner of the 30-lap Mr. Crate Classic after Steve Davis took the checkered flag first but was found illegal in post-race tech inspection. The $750 victory was Simmons’ second win of the 2019 season after picking up the win on opening night. Jeremy Martino, Steve Hicks, Eric Palmer and Anthony Tramontana Jr. completed the top five,

“Ill take it, I’m happy to be here and we did it the right way”, spoke Simmons after the races.

Rich Mellor picked up his sixth Larry’s Hot Rods and Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car win of 2019 on Saturday after an epic battle at the front of the field throughout the closing laps of the event. Brian Spencer would come home second for the second straight week, Larry Drake, Duane Nixon and Brad Schaale were the rest of the top five.

Dominick Antonelli would finally shake the monkey off his back and win his first career Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinder win at the New Egypt Speedway. Joe Garey Sr., TJ Graves, Justin Dunn and Joe King completed the top five.

New Egypt Speedway is back in action next Saturday night August 10th with Toms River Township night. All Toms River and area township residents will be admitted free in to the grandstands with proof of residency. The Vahlco Wheels Modifieds will be the headlining division. The Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Cars will make their final 2019 NES stop next Saturday as well. The Hammer Sportsman and Street Stocks will round out the racing card.

Adult Admission (16+) is $20, Seniors (65+) are $18, Teens (12-15) & Military w/ID are $10 while Kids 11 & Under are FREE. Pit gates will open at 4PM with the grandstands opening at 5PM. Hot Laps are scheduled for 6PM with racing scheduled to begin at 7PM next Saturday.

David VanHorn Blitzes the Field on Youth Football Night at NES

(July 27, 2019): David VanHorn of Ringoes, NJ won his second Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season on Eastern Auto Parts Warehouse Youth Football Night Saturday at New Egypt Speedway. The 2018 Modified champion, DVH charged to the front quickly and never looked back as he recorded his 8th career victory in the 30 lap non stop event, which was completed in just 9 minutes and 14 seconds.

“I have to thank the guys up at DKM Fabrication, This car was on rails tonight!”, stated an elated VanHorn in victory lane, “I also want to thank my Dad for all of his help and Fred Vahlsing for giving me the opportunity to drive this car and all of his support”

JR Fulper and Pat Wall brought the field to the green flag with Fulper taking command. This was short lived as Wall drove under Fulper on lap 3 to take over the lead. Wall had his #5w glued to the inside guardrail as he tried to open up a little breathing room on the field. Danny Bouc, who started in fifth, was on the move racing into second on lap 5. Meanwhile VanHorn was charging thru the field using the top groove and was suddenly in third closing in on the leaders. Before Bouc could mount a serious challenge on Wall for the lead, DVH flew by on the outside sweeping to the front. Bouc quickly switched to the outside and followed VanHorn by Wall and into second. Bouc set his sights on reeling in VanHorn, however this was not to be as VanHorn’s #323 drove off into the night, while Bouc did everything he could to keep pace. With just 10 laps remaining lapped traffic came into play, but DVH handled it masterfully and cruised to the victory. Bouc settled for a solid and well-earned second place finish. Point leader Billy Pauch Jr. marched thru the field from his 13th starting position to come home third, Pat Wall used the inside groove to perfection finishing fourth and Mike Butler, who fell back in the pack early, came on strong late to finish in the top five.

Rich Mellor of North Hanover Twp., NJ padded his point lead by scoring his 5th victory of the season in the Larry’s Hot Rods and Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint cars. Mellor took the lead before the halfway point of the 20 lap event and drove to his 7th career win. Brian Spencer came home second in his new car, followed by Heidi Hedin, Duane Nixon and John Brammell.

David Burns of Flemington, NJ was victorious in the Hammer Sportsman 20 lap feature event, as he led his car owner and teammate Marty Resnick for most of the event when the races only caution flew on the final lap. Burns kept control on the restart and scored his first win of 2019. Three-time champion Bob Lineman Jr. grabbed second on the final turn as Resnick settled for third. JT Trstensky and Art Liedl rounded out the top five.

Brian Spencer outdueled point leader Billy Liedtka in just his second start for the 15 lap Street Stock victory. Spencer raced side by side with Liedtka over the final laps, beating the all-time leading Street Stock winner by a bumper at the stripe. Todd Dige finished third in his first time out this season, followed by Billy Wroble and Jim Avery.

Next week Sat. night August 3rd, it is Scout night & Jeep Night 2 at New Egypt Speedway. All Scouts in uniform will get in for free & everyone who brings their Jeep will receive ½ price general admission and there will be a Jeep parade on the track at intermission. The Vahlco Wheels Modifieds will once again headline the event, and they will be joined on the track by the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harleys NEWS Sprint Cars, the Crate Modifieds and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-cylinders.

Jersey Rush Canceled

JERSEY RUSH VIII

JERESEY RUSH VIII CANCELED AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, JULY 16, LOW CAR COUNT CITED

NEW EGYPT, NJ July 15, 2019 - After careful consideration and acknowledgement of likely low competitor participation, JERSEY RUSH event promoters Bob Miller, Len Sammons, Danny Sammons and Davey Sammons have been forced to cancel the event at New Egypt Speedway which had been planned for tomorrow night, Tuesday, July 16th. We always want to present the highest quality show and a great amount of effort went into the planning with over sixty sprint car team contacted. This is very disappoint for all involved, including competitors from all divisions who committed to race.

The promoters cited a shortage of anticipated entries of the 410 Sprint Cars as the reason for the postponement. Two prominent JERSEY RUSH Sprint racers who annually compete at the event, former winner Ryan Smith and recent PA Speedweek champion Lucas Wolfe are both sidelined with injuries suffered recently.

Smith, who has not raced since suffering a concussion at Selinsgrove Speedway on June 30th, has yet to be cleared by doctors to return to competition. Wolfe suffered back injuries this past Sunday, July 14 in the All Star Sprint Series race at Lebanon Valley Speedway.

Despite engine problems and crashes that had set back numerous other 410 Sprint teams in recent weeks, the promoters felt they had organized a strong enough field of entries for fans to enjoy the show until this past weekend problems forced other teams to cancel. Similar problems on the Modified side were also reported after a tough weekend for both divisions.

“None of us, me, Len Sammons or his sons Danny and Davey would be comfortable putting on a show with such a short field of cars,” said Bob Miller.

“We recognize the inconvenience a late cancelation may cause for those race teams that were planning to be at JERSEY RUSH and for fans who look forward to the event. But we would rather be up front about what was likely to occur and cancel than trying to put on a show that would not be up to the standard we believe race fans deserve.”

Due to the busy schedule, we will not look for an alternate date in 2019.

We thank the drivers of all divisions who did commit to the show as well as the outpour of interest in the event from race fans.

Sammons Links Up Win Number Two On Premio Foods Night At New Egypt Speedway

New Egypt, NJ – Bordentown, NJ’s Davey Sammons picked up his second career and second Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event win of the season at the New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night on Upper Freehold/Hamilton Township night presented by Premio Foods. Also earning victories on Saturday night were Ricky DiEva in the Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Cars, Matt Miller in the Crate Modifieds and Bill Liedtka in the Street Stocks.

Milford, NJ’s JR Fulper led the Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event to the green flag with Davey Sammons in tow. After some yellow flag fever to start the Modified feature, Fulper would set a torrid pace and appeared to be on his way to his first career Modified win until lap 16 when Fulper entering turn three would tangle with a lapped car ending his night. Fulper’s mishap would then hand the lead to Davey Sammons who would go on to win his second career and second Modified win of 2019 at NES. Following a lap two tangle that sent him pit side with a flat tire Billy Pauch Jr. rallied to finish second, further extending his point lead. Brandon Grosso, Rich Rutski and Ryan Krachun would round out the top five. Sammons would dedicate his win to long time supporter John Chemedlin who recently passed away.

“This one is for John, I thought about that with two laps to go, I had a tear running down my eye”, said Sammons post race. “It’s a shame, JR was running a good race, I thought I would be able to get to the lead on the top early but I couldn’t get off of two so I just fell in line and rode behind him for a little bit. I got a little tight early and I thought he would come back to me but he wasn’t. I thought I would get a shot at him in lapped traffic and it’s unfortunate what happened to him but we had a good car.”

It was a pair of young guns dueling in Crate Modified action between Matt Miller and Anthony Tramontana Jr. Miller would control the distance over Tramontana until Tramontana had a driveline issue under caution. Miller would then hold off a hard charging Joe Toth to pick up his first career Crate Modified victory. Toth would take over the point lead with his runner-up finish. Miller’s best career finish prior to this Saturday was a 12th. Steve Davis, Ryan Simmons and Johnny Bangs completed the top five.

Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Car Rookie Ricky DiEva led wire-to-wire in the 20 lap main event picking up his first career Sprint Car win. Mark Bitner was a man on a mission trying to catch DiEva in the late stages of the event but it would be to no avail. Bitner, Jeff Geiges, Tim Tanner Jr. and Eddie Wagner rounded out the top five.

Bill Liedtka just keeps adding to his all time leading Street Stock win total, picking up the win on Saturday night over a fast Brian Spencer, Jimmy Avery, Joe Reid and Billy Wroble.

Six AMA Flat Track Motorcycles took part in three exhibitions throughout the evening in anticipation of next Sunday’s AMA Garden State Flat Track Classic.

New Egypt Speedway is back in action this Tuesday night with the Jersey Rush VIII featuring the 410 Sprint Cars, Modifieds and Crate’s. Pit gates will swing open at 3:30pm, Grandstands at 5pm, with Hot Laps at 7pm and Sprint Car time trials hitting the Speedway at 7:15pm. Adult admission is $30, Children 6-11 are $10, with Kids 6 & Under are FREE. Pit admission is $35.
