New Egypt, NJ – Due to moisture left over from back-to-back Nor’easter’s New Egypt Speedway has been forced to postpone its Open Practice until Friday night April 6th. Pit gates will open at 3PM for inspection and practice will run from 5-9PM.
“Everything is still really wet. We need a few days of sun to help dry everything out,” said New Egypt Speedway’s Joey Liquori. “We want to give our guys a chance to test their equipment before we start racing and after looking at the forecast for early next week we decided that Fridaywould be the best option.”
Any racecar that is New Jersey legal is welcome to take part in the practice session. Pit Admission will be $25. Opening night re-draw positions will still be up for grabs.
