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.

Former Champs Pauch Jr. & VanHorn Split Twin 20’s at New Egypt Speedway

(Aug. 31, 2019): 2017 track champion Billy Pauch Jr. of , Frenchtown, NJ won his fifth Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season in the first feature, and 2018 track champ David VanHorn of Harmony, NJ took his fourth win of the season in the nightcap at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night. For Pauch Jr. it was career win number 26, tying him for 4th on the all-time Modified win list with Keith Hoffman and Frank Cozze. VanHorn’s tenth career victory came in one of the most exciting feature events in track history, as he bested Mike Butler and Brandon Grosso in a torrid three car battle for the win.

In the first event, heat race winner TJ Lilly grabbed the initial lead ahead of PJ Oliver, Rich Rutski and Cale Ross. Lilly looked strong in the early going as Rutski took over the runner-up position. Rutski was persistent and finally wrestled the lead away from Lilly on lap 9, but this was short lived as PJ Oliver roared back to life and raced from 4th to the lead on a restart to lead at the halfway mark. Oliver began to stretch his lead as fifth starting Kevin Vaclavicek raced into second and 13th starting Billy Pauch Jr. was now third. Pauch Jr. wasted no time as he quickly charged into second and reeled in the leader. Lap 13 saw Pauch Jr. grab the lead before the caution flew for a tangle between top five runners Danny Bouc and Vaclavicek. The restart saw Pauch Jr. pull away with ease as he cruised to his third Modified victory this week. Ryan Krachun drove from his 9th starting spot to finish a very solid second, besting David VanHorn, Brandon Grosso and Rutski, who completed the top five. In victory lane, Pauch Jr chose the child holding the inversion number 11, meaning that the top 11 finishers would be inverted for the start of the second Twin 20.

Billy Osmun and Danny Bouc made up the front row for the second feature with Bouc racing out to the lead. Bouc quickly opened up a lead with the rest of the pack virtually on his heels racing 2, 3, and twice 4 wide for the top 12 positions in a wild and crowd pleasing battle. With positions changing radically on each passing lap in the top ten Bouc continued to lead each lap. Finally on lap 9 ground swell behind Bouc caught up to the leader as Mike Butler and three other cars passed him on both sides. Two-time winner Butler now had the lead at the halfway sign, but the pressure was relentless from behind as VanHorn and Brandon Grosso raced side by side on his back bumper. The following lap this duo caught the cushion riding Butler and brought the crowd to their feet as they raced under Butler to make it three-wide for the lead. Unknown to the crowd, they would stay on their feet for the remaining last half of the race, as VanHorn & Grosso would not give each other an inch, racing side by side around the speedway lap after lap, and pulling up under Butler to make it 3-abreast in every corner of the speedway. On lap 16 VanHorn showed that his relentless pounding on the bottom groove was paying off as he finally got the bite he was looking for off turn 2 and nosed ahead into turn three. Just as DVH grabbed the lead he got into a little fluid on the bottom of turn four forcing the car to push up the speedway as if he was diving into the pits directly in front of the leaders. VanHorn made an incredible save on the far outside of the track as Butler shot by with Grosso in tow. VanHorn had not only saved it, but was right on the back bumper of the leader down the frontstretch and tried to swing back under Butler, however Grosso was right there as well with the two making hard contact but immediately recovering and both picking up the chase once again. In one lap it was back to the three-wide battle again and as the white flag flew VanHorn grabbed the lead on the low side of turn 4. The final lap saw Butler and Grosso battling for second as VanHorn went on to capture the exciting 20 lap event. Butler came home second, Grosso third, followed by Billy Pauch Jr. and Cale Ross.

Steve Davis of Jackson, NJ was victorious in the Hammer Sportsman 20 lap feature event. Early race leader and new point leader Jim Housworth came home second. John Criscione, David Burns and last week’s winner Ryan Heim rounded out the top five.

The Larry’s Hot Rods and Harley’s NEWS Sprint cars saw a first time winner in victory lane, as Brian Spencer finally posted his first career win after being so close on so many occasions. Spencer got by race long leader Al Cheney, who was also looking for his first career win in a sprint car, and then held off point leader Rich Mellor for the victory. Cheney settled for third, trailed by Duane Nixon and Heidi Hedin.

Dom “the Bomb” Antonelli won his second straight Mike’s Performance 4-Cylinder 15 lap feature. Defending champ Joe Garey Sr. was second, Jim Avery third, Rob Longo fourth and Robby Dunn fifth.

This coming Saturday, Sept. 7th will be the John Romano Memorial 30 lap event for the Hammer Sportsman sponsored by 48Barriers.com along with G&M Dill Trucking and Amwell Auto Body. They will be joined by the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds, Crate Modifieds, and the Street Stocks.

Labor Day Double Dip On Tap For New Egypt Speedway This Saturday August 31st; Twin 20’s For Vahlco Wheels Modifieds

New Egypt, NJ – Like the saying goes, double your pleasure, double your fun. That is the case at New Egypt Speedway this Saturday night when the 2nd Annual Labor Day Double Dip is taking place for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds who will do battle in not one but two 20-lap feature events this weekend. Billy Pauch Jr. leads the points right now over Danny Bouc, Brandon Grosso, Ryan Krachun and Mike Butler and with two races this weekend, the points can certainly get shaken up. Also in action this Saturday will be the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, Hammer Sportsman and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders. Rich Mellor, Bob Lineman Jr. and Mike Fox currently lead the point standings in those respective divisions.

All sets of twins will be admitted free on Saturday night. Adult admission is $25, Seniors (65+) are $23, Teens (12-15) & Military w/ID are $15 with Kids 11 & Under being FREE. Pit gates will open at 4pm, Grandstands at 5pm with Hot Laps starting at 6pm and Racing beginning at 7pm! This will be our last 7pm start of the season as starting next week we will move back to a 6pm starting time.

As the points season starts to wind down, New Egypt Speedway still has some big events left in its 2019 season starting with the John Romano Memorial coming up on September 7th, Modified championship night coming up on September 14th, Championship night on September 15th, the 3rd Annual Legends of the Fall 75 on October 5th, AMA Flat Track Motorcycles on Saturday night October 19th and the 7th Annual All Star Cup Shootout on Saturday October 26th.
