All-Star Field Set for $1,000 Winner Take All
Xtreme Graphics "Rogie Rumble III" on Friends of Mike Night


New Egypt, NJ (July 23, 2012)The fans of New Egypt Speedway have voted and once again their voices have been heard loud and clear.  Forget the points this time!  It’s all about who the fans wanted to see battle it out one lap at a time.  For the third consecutive year the ‘xtremely’ popular modified one on one match races will take center stage on Friends of Mike Night July 28.

Xtreme Graphics has stepped up to the plate and once again will sponsor the ‘Rogie Rumble III’.  Adam Huff and Dan Fleming of Asbury, NJ have operated the full service graphics/design company since 2005.  They offer everything from custom logo design, signs, banners, to vehicle graphics and wraps.

“Designing and lettering race cars is a big part of our business and we thought sponsoring this event would be a great opportunity to give back to the sport we all love and have been involved with,” offered Fleming. “Our customers include Ryan Godown, Billy Pauch and Willie Osmun,” Fleming added.  For more information you can visit Xtreme Graphics at
www.xtremegraphicsnj.com.

NES fans casted over 400 votes as 73 different drivers received votes this past Saturday at the track. The top 5 New Egypt regulars and top 5 ‘Outsiders’ that received votes have been locked into the Rogie Rumble III.

For the second straight year the driver leading the way in the voting ballots was Neshanic Station, NJ’s Jimmy Horton. Horton, always a fan-favorite where ever he races, is looking to continue his solid and successful 2012 season. Teaming up with long-time car owner Dieter Schmidt, Horton has been a force to be reckoned with all season long no matter what venue he races at. The ‘Sensational One’ has done more traveling during the first half of this season then all of 2011 which has got this crafty veteran all pumped up for the ‘big money’ races that await during the second half of the season.  A win in the Rogie Rumble III could lead to a great finish in the 100-lap F.O.M. feature as Horton is always a threat in extra-distance races.

Finishing second behind Horton was Frenchtown, NJ’s Billy “The Kid” Pauch. Pauch, the all-time feature winner at NES, righted his ship last weekend breaking a two month winless spell at the speedway.  Pauch has been dubbed the ‘king’ of the match races since its inception almost a decade ago. Trailing Pauch by a single vote was his son Billy Pauch Jr.  Whether you call him ‘The Legacy,’ ‘The Kid’s Kid,’ or ‘Little Billy’ he has turned heads all season long at his new home track NES.  Driving for the potent Petruska/Atlas Paving Team, Pauch Jr. already has two feature wins this year at New Egypt. Two-time NES track champion and former winner of F.O.M. Rick Laubach was the fourth highest in the voting statistics from this past weekend. ‘The Quaker Shaker’ may not be a regular at NES in 2012 but he certainly has not forgotten the quick route around his former stomping grounds.

Current point leader Ryan Godown rounded out the top 5 in the overall voting for the Rogie Rumble III. The ‘Ringoes Rocket’ has been solid all year long, racing to four victories while padding his comfortable point lead.

Rochester, NY’s Danny Johnson finished sixth in the balloting. ‘The Doctor’ will be looking to make a ‘house call’ when the Rogie Rumble III stages in the infield on July 28.

2012 Race of Champions Cabin Fever 60 winner Stewart Friesen received plenty of votes which locked him into Saturday’s match races as did 2007 modified track champion Matt Sheppard.  Rounding out the field for next week’s Rogie Rumble III will be two NJ hot shoes who have had stellar seasons thus far in the competitive weekly wars at NES.  Hometown Hero Ron John Koczon and Sammy Martz rounded out the top 10 in all of the votes that were casted.  Koczon has one victory this season while Martz has been knocking on the door all year long.

Defending Friends of Mike winner Tim McCreadie is automatically locked into Saturday’s Rogie Rumble. ‘T-Mac’ came into town and conquered NES last year for a $20,000 pay day.  McCreadie also came within three laps of winning this year’s R.o.C. Cabin Fever race back in March. Two more drivers will be added to the field on the night of July 28 as they will start off the eliminations against each other in the first match race. Those two slots will be filled by the two drivers turning the quickest laps in their respective heat races.  $1,000 awaits the ‘Xtreme Graphics’ Rogie Rumble III winner along with a beautiful trophy and life-sized check compliments of Xtreme Graphics of course.

All gates open at 2pm on Saturday, July 28.  Adult admission is $30, students 12-15 are $15, and children 11 and under are FREE. Pit admission is $40 no license required.  For more information please call the speedway at 609-758-1900 or log on to www.newegyptspeedway.net.
