DUPREE DRIVES INTO VICTORY LANE AS LINEMAN IS CROWNED HAMMER SPORTSMAN CHAMPION AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY

DUPREE DRIVES INTO VICTORY LANE AS LINEMAN IS CROWNED HAMMER SPORTSMAN CHAMPION AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY

New Egypt, NJ (September 16, 2018) – At New Egypt Speedway’s Championship Night presented by the United States Air Force, Will Dupree scored the win in the Hammer Sportsman feature as Bob Lineman Jr. was crowned the 2018 division champion. In the Crate Modified class, Joe Toth topped the field while Kyle Kania won the points title. Lee Nardelli took the checkered flag in the main event for the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars and the championship was captured by Karl Freyer. The point finale and championship in the Street Stock division went to Jon Meyer. Joe Garey Jr. was the victor in the 4-Cylinder contest while his dad, Joe Garey Sr., won the division championship.

As the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman got underway, Marty Resnick grabbed the lead with David Burns in second. Will Dupree motored into third with two laps completed. Cale Ross, who was trailing Bob Lineman Jr. by ten points in the title chase, moved into fourth place just before the first of three appearances of the yellow flag on lap seven. On the second attempt to resume the contest, the fifth place running Lineman Jr. made accidental contact with Ross. The incident resulted in Ross spinning in turn four and Lineman Jr. was sent to the rear of the field. When green flag racing returned, Burns sped past Resnick to assume the front running spot with Dupree shuffling into second. At the halfway point, Burns was still on top as Dupree was within striking distance. With seven laps remaining, Burns began to slow down on the backstretch and Dupree inherited the lead with Ryan Heim advancing into second and Art Liedl taking over third. Over the final tours of the race, Dupree went unchallenged and drove to his first win of the year. Heim, the 2018 rookie champion, was the runner-up. With Liedl finishing third, Ross came from the back to take fourth. Fifth went to Resnick. By finishing eighth, Lineman Jr. was able to win the 2018 Hammer Sportsman championship by two points over Ross. The Hammer Sportsman heat races were taken by Art Liedl and Will Dupree.

After a mid-race battle with Steve Desmelyk in the 20-lap Crate Modified contest, Joe Toth was able to pull away in the latter stages to win his second feature of the season. Desmelyk lead the first nine laps before Toth became the leader as the halfway sign was given to the field. On lap eleven, Desmelyk returned to the top running position. Following a good clash between the top runners, Toth regained the lead for good with seven laps remaining. With a strong second place finish, Kyle Kania was able to secure the Crate Modified title for 2018. Jeremy Martino was third. After his car was damaged in a heat race accident, Ryan Simmons steered Rob Mancini’s ride from the rear to a fourth place finish. Desmelyk held on to complete the top five. Steve Desmelyk and Aaron Weaver scored wins in the Crate Modifieds qualifying races.

In the non-stop 20-lap main event for the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, a dominant green to checkered performance put Lee Nardelli in the winner’s circle for the first time in 2018. Heidi Hedin was second. Third was grabbed by Joey Biasi and fourth went to Rich Mellor. Karl Freyer, the division champion for the season, completed the race in fifth. In addition to winning the feature, Nardelli was the victor in the heat race for the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars.

In the 15-lap Street Stock race, Jon Meyer led from start to finish to win the feature and claim the 2018 title. The victory was Meyer’s fifth of the year. Bill Liedtka came home in second. Third was taken by Lee Allen. Jerry Stanzione and Jim Avery rounded out the top five.

Joe Garey Jr. took the lead from Neil Rutt with three laps remaining in the 15-lap 4-Cylinder feature and paced the pack the rest of the way to snare his third checkered flag of the season. Joe Garey Sr. finished in second and won the 4-Cylinder championship. Rutt, who led the opening eleven circuits, held on to finish third. Fourth was JC Duvall and Charlie Lauble was fifth.

On Saturday, September 22, the 2nd Annual Legends of the Fall takes place at New Egypt Speedway. The Modifieds (Small Blocks vs. Big Blocks) will be competing in a 75-lap feature that will pay $7,500 to win and $500 to start the race. In addition, the racing program will be rounded out by a 35-lap affair featuring the Crate Modifieds vs. Sportsman and an exhibition race staged by the Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club.

David VanHorn Scores First New Egypt Speedway Track Championship Worth $10,000

David VanHorn Scores First New Egypt Speedway Track Championship Worth $10,000

New Egypt, NJ – Ringoes, NJ native David Van Horn picked up his first career New Egypt Speedway track championship this past Saturday after Mother Nature washed out the New Egypt Speedway Modified points finale. It is VanHorn’s third career track championship as he won the Small-Block Modified championship in 2007 and backed it up with a Big-Block Modified title at the Orange County Fair Speedway in 2008, he is the ninth different Modified champion in the track’s 21-year history as a dirt track.

“It was a solid team effort, we were very consistent and that’s what it takes to win a championship. There’s a very talented field at New Egypt week in and week out. I have to thank Fred for giving me the opportunity to drive his car. Also if it weren’t for my dad and Jeff this season would not have been possible”, said VanHorn.

It was a duel between two of the most famous last names in New Jersey racing history in VanHorn and Billy Pauch Jr. as the pair finished one-two on opening night making it obvious from the onset of the 2018 season that it would be a two-car battle for the $10,000 New Egypt Speedway Modified crown.

After winning the first two races of 2018, Pauch Jr. led the points up until Memorial Day weekend where a mechanical failure relegated him to a 19th place finish handing the point lead over to VanHorn.

Consistency would be the key during the summer months, as VanHorn would not finish any worse than tenth but Pauch Jr. would not be far behind as following the June 16th event, VanHorn would hold just a two-point lead over Pauch Jr. after DVH finished to second to Pauch Jr. on the night

DVH would pick up his only New Egypt Speedway victory of 2018 in a show-up points only event during the Garden State Gunfight where he annihilated the field on his way to the $6,000 victory.

As the summer weeks clicked off the two would go tit for tat with each other, one week VanHorn would finish in front of Pauch Jr., the following week it would be vice versa and the week after that they would swap who finished in front of who yet again.

It all appeared to end though on August 18th as a blown motor would put VanHorn out of the feature with 22nd place finish handing the point lead back to Pauch Jr. who would finish second on the evening heading into Twin-20’s the next week with a 23-point lead.

The first Twin-20 on September 1st had VanHorn lining up in front of Pauch Jr. based off his handicapping from the previous three races. As the race went on Pauch Jr. made his way forward and around VanHorn running as high as sixth until disaster stuck with the Rick Holsten owned No. 96 running out of fuel on the last lap of the race forcing him to finish in the 13th position, seven spots behind VanHorn.

When the green flag dropped on the second Twin-20 due to the inversion, VanHorn already had a seven-position lead on Pauch Jr. heading into what would ultimately be the final Modified points race of 2018. DVH would work his way methodically through the field-finishing runner-up to Brandon Grosso with Pauch Jr. coming home in the sixth position.

Unfortunately Mother Nature would step in on Saturday September 9th ending the Modified points race handing the championship to VanHorn over Pauch Jr. by just five points.

“We overcame a lot this year, especially after that blown motor, I almost thought it was over. That goes to show you the perseverance and heart that our team has, our team never quits,” VanHorn said.

To tell you how close the two of them really were in 2018, VanHorn ends the 2018 NES points race without a points-paying win, nine Top-5’s and 13 Top-10’s in 15 points paying races, while Pauch Jr. had three wins, seven Top-5’s and 11 Top-10’s. 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.

VanHorn wins the 2018 championship with 795 points. Pauch Jr. would end the 2018 season second in points with 790 points followed by Danny Bouc in third with 743 points, Brandon Grosso fourth with 740 points after missing two races, John McClelland in fifth with 726 points, Kevin Vaclavicek in sixth with 693, Ryan Krachun seventh with 671, a trio of Modified rookies Davey Sammons eighth with 629 and JR Fulper ninth with 623 and Matt Stangle tenth with 616.

VanHorn also currently sits in the third place in the Short Track Super Series South Region behind Ryan Watt and Matt Sheppard.
