David Van Horn Breaks Thru at New Egypt Speedway

(August 14, 2021) David Van Horn captured his first Modified feature win of 2021 on Jeep Night at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday. Van Horn marched from 12th starting position, taking the lead from Louden Reimert on lap 18, and never looked back. It was the 11th victory of his career at NES.

Chris Grbac and DJ Hunt brought the field to the start of the 30-lap contest with Hunt opening up a nice half straightaway lead over the first 5 laps. Hunt withstood one restart but by lap 8 the Modified Rookie had heavy pressure coming from behind as newcomer Louden Reimert and 5-time winner Billy Pauch Jr. were making quick work of the competition behind him.  It took a couple laps for Reimert to find a way by Hunt, all the while holding off Pauch.  As Reimert grabbed the lead Pauch Jr. followed him by and continued to hound Reimert, now for the lead. Suddenly from seemingly out of nowhere, Van Horn burst onto the scene and raced side by side with Pauch for second. This battle was waged on Reimert’s back bumper for 4 laps, with Van Horn and Pauch trying to one up each other on every turn. Twice the duo attempted to make it three wide for the lead, but Reimert was up to each challenge.  Finally on lap 18, Van Horn got a tremendous bite on the low side of turn two and shot by both Pauch and leader Reimert.  Once in front DVH pulled away, as his car got faster with each passing lap.  With Van Horn out in front, Pauch picked up his battle with Reimert, trying every groove over the next 10 laps to no avail.  Finally as the field was shown the “two to go” signal Pauch found just enough room and squeezed by Reimert’s Fleuer #16. Van Horn cruised to the victory as Pauch Jr. earned a hard fought runner-up finish. Tenth starter Reimert settled for third, making a lot of fans at NES in the process, with his hard work and smooth driving throughout the 30 lap affair, as he got onto the podium for the first time in just his fifth start. Mike Gular, who looked to be the fastest car on the track in the opening laps, fought his way back to finish 4th, as he quickly closed on the leaders over the final five laps. Mike Butler crossed the line fifth for his second top five in the last 3 races.

It’s a Grosso Sweep Saturday at New Egypt Speedway 

(August 7, 2021):  The Grosso brothers took center stage Saturday night at New Egypt Speedway as Brandon won for the third time this season in a special 40 lap Modified event and younger brother Justin destroyed the field in the 20 lap Sportsman feature for his 4th win in a row. This marks the first time this year that the brothers have won a feature on the same night at the track.

26 cars took the green flag in the Vahlco Wheels Modified 40 lapper with PJ Oliver grabbing the lead over Chris Grbac.  Oliver was looking dominant in the early going as he opened up a sizable lead until two consecutive cautions flew on lap 6 & 8 to slow the action.   Oliver continued to lead when racing resumed as Rick Laubach took over the runner-up spot. Laubach quickly had his hands full as Oliver drove away from the field again, with 11th starter Grosso already challenging for second. Grosso quickly moved into second, bringing 2018 track champ David Van Horn with him, and took up the chase after Oliver who was more than a half straightaway in front. Grosso took only 5 laps to catch the leader and on lap 17 made what proved to be the winning pass.  As Grosso assumed command, last week’s winner Billy Pauch Jr. and point leader Mike Gular were hot on his heels and also passed Oliver.  This duo traded second spot back and forth a couple times as Grosso proved too strong, even thru two more restarts.  Grosso cruised to his third win of the season ahead of Pauch Jr. and Gular, with Van Horn coming home fourth. Some confusion occurred on the final lap when chief starter Terry Branson was hit by an object causing him to prematurely throw the checkered flag. He quickly realized his mistake and switched back to the white flag, however not before fifth place runner Dominic Buffalino, who had been battling to hold off a fast Louden Reimert, had seen it. This resulted in fifth place switching on the final circuit. Track officials, upon reviewing what had happened, decided that both drivers would be credited with finishing fifth in the final rundown, and would both receive fifth place money and points for the event.  Thankfully flagger Branson was uninjured. Mike Gular remains the point leader by just 2 points over Billy Pauch Jr.

Grosso and Mancini Earn Their Winners Badge on New Egypt Scout Night

(July 24, 2021):  Justin Grosso of Belle Mead, NJ and Paul Mancini of New Gretna, NJ drove to victory Saturday night in their 20 lap feature events on Scout Night at New Egypt Speedway. Mancini won for his second win of the year in the Crate Modified event. The Sportsman event marked the second time in a row Grosso won with that division, and the 7th time overall across both divisions this year for the young driver.

Grosso raced from 6th starting position to win the Sportsman 20 lap event.  Will Dupree led much of the event but Grosso proved to be too strong in the end as he ran Dupree down and went on to win by 1.9 seconds. Anthony Tramontana won the battle for third over Ryan Heim, with Tom Princiotta rounding out the top five.  

Paul Mancini won the Racersguide.com Crate Modified 20 lapper for the second time in three races.  The event was only slowed once for an early caution, and Mancini held off a persistent Johnny Bangs for the victory.  Point leader Pat Wall finished a close third, followed by Ryan Simmons and Anthony Tramontana.

Bouc And Blewett Best In New Egypt Double Dip

NEW EGYPT NJ - Danny Bouc and Jimmy Blewett bested the New Egypt Speedway Vahlco Wheels Modified field in the 2nd Annual Modified Double Dip on Saturday winning the Twin-20 lap main events for the division. After clouds and rain much of the day that finally cleared around 5:00 for good, the race fans in attendance saw a very competitive night of racing.

The first 20-lap main event for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds saw Chris Grbac lead the field to the green flag. Grbac led the field down the backstretch when the battle for the lead picked up in a hurry. Wade Hendrickson shot to the outside of Grbac while Davey Sammons shot to the inside as the lead trio hit turn three. Grbac pushed up the race track ever so slightly washing him and Hendrickson up the race track allowing Sammons to scoot through on the bottom and take the lead to complete lap one bringing Opening Night winner Danny Bouc with him in tow.
