Wet Weather Forces March Meltdown Cancellation

New Egypt, NJ – After a soaking rain that fell all day on Thursday and is forecasted into Friday afternoon, New Egypt Speedway management has been forced to cancel the 2019 version of the March Meltdown.

“It’s a shame, we have been working night and day to get ready for this, we would have had a great field of cars in the pit area and our fans were excited about it too but unfortunately the weather just isn’t cooperating with us”, said New Egypt’s Joey Liquori. “This rain soaked everything and even more, Saturday has temperatures in the 40’s at race time with 30 mile per hour wind gusts. It’s just not favorable for anyone.”

Attention now turns to New Egypt Speedway’s Open Practice session next Saturday March 30th. Pit gates will open at 10AM for tech inspection with cars hitting the track from 12-4PM.

New Egypt Speedway will then begin its 22nd season as a dirt track on Saturday night April 6th when Oliver Communications Group presents the Cabin Fever 40 for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds that will pay $3,000 to win and $300 to start. The Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, Crate Modifieds, 4-Cylinders and the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman will all be in action as well. Pit gates will open at Noon for early tech inspection, Grandstands at 4PM with Hot Laps scheduled for 5PM and the first green flag of the 2019 season flying at 6PM. Adult admission will be $22, Seniors (65+) are $20, Teens & Military w/ID are $12 while Kids 11 & Under are FREE.

VanHorn Celebrates $10,000 New Egypt Speedway Championship During Annual Night Of Champions

VanHorn Celebrates $10,000 New Egypt Speedway Championship During Annual Night Of Champions

New Egypt, NJ – David VanHorn celebrated his first career New Egypt Speedway Modified Track Championship worth $10,000 this past Saturday night in front of a packed ballroom at the Clarion of Toms River.

“If you look at some of the names that have won track champions at New Egypt, you have guys like Roger Laureno, Billy Pauch, Jimmy Horton and Frank Cozze. That’s some good company to be in”, said VanHorn. “The competition at New Egypt weekly is about as tough as it is anywhere, they have a lot of talent through out the field and a lot of young talent coming up through the ranks.”

A regular at the Ocean County D-Shaped oval since 2010, DVH notched his title on a base of consistency. VanHorn ended the 2018 NES points race without a points-paying win, nine Top-5’s and 13 Top-10’s in 15 points paying races. The only time VanHorn failed to finish out of the Top-10 was on May 9th following a flat tire and August 18th with a blown motor. David’s only win of the season came in the Non-Points Garden State Gunfight held in June.

“I can’t thank Fred Vahlsing enough for what he has done for me, a few year’s ago he called me while we were on our way to a Deyo race and he asked me to drive his car and I told him I wanted to win championships for him and I’m glad that I can make good on that”, revealed VanHorn. “This all wouldn’t be possible without my family either, they support me no matter what, this one is for them as much as it is me.”

The ageless Karl Freyer was officially crowned the 2018 Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car champion and announced some exciting news that the legendary Stan Ploski would be driving his car during the 2019 season at New Egypt Speedway.

Bob Lineman Jr. was crowned the Hammer Sportsman champion on the evening. For Lineman, it was his third career NES Track title after winning it previously in 2013 and 2016.

Like VanHorn, Kyle Kania won the 2018 Crate Modified championship with out winning a feature event. Kania announced on Saturday night that he intends on moving up to the Modified ranks at New Egypt Speedway in 2019.

Jon Meyer picked up his first career Street Stock title in 2018 after just a few seasons of racing. He indicated that he would be back to defend his title again in 2019.

Joe Garey Sr. will go down in the history books as New Egypt Speedway’s first ever 4-Cylinder track champion. Garey will also be back to defend his title in 2019.

Ryan Heim was crowned the 2018 Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman champion.

The Top-10 in each division were honored with trophies, while specialty awards went to Brandon Grosso (Best Appearing Car), Kevin Vaclavicek (Most Improved Modified Driver), Brian Spencer (Most Improved Northeast Wingless Sprint Car Driver), David Burns (Most Improved Sportsman Driver), Johnny Bangs (Most Improved Crate Modified Driver) and Ryan Freshneck (Most Improved Street Stock Driver. Noted engine builder Gary Bouc was named the 2018 Overall Track Champion due to his generosity in loaning engines out so that many drivers could keep returning to NES weekly.
