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.
The following night New Egypt Speedway will fire-off its 21st Season as a dirt track on Saturday April 7th when Oliver Communications Group presents the return of the Modifieds who will compete in a 40-Lap, $2,750 to win, Double Points affair along with the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars, Hammer Sportsman, Crate Modifieds and Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman.
