Mother Nature Shuffles Final Point Races of Season at New Egypt Speedway

New Egypt, NJ (September 24, 2012) – New Egypt Speedway’s second half of 2012 season has been plagued by rainouts and inclement weather which have shuffled the racing schedule around on a continued basis starting back as far as July. This past weekend, the ARDC midgets, TSRS 305 sprint cars, and the big block modifieds were all set to thrill the fans at NES. Unfortunately, heavy thunderstorms arrived shortly after the traveling midget series had just finished their extremely exciting main event. The modified and sprint car features were postponed to this coming Saturday, September 29. The Rislone URC Sprints were originally scheduled to make their second appearance of the year at New Egypt on September 29. Due to the rescheduled events from last weekend, track management has regrettably decided to cancel the URC portion from this coming Saturday’s racing card. “It was a tough decision to make but, the weather has really hurt us over the past two months,” offered track manager Danny Serrano. “We talked to Bob Miller and URC this morning and they completely understood our situation which is all you can ask for. The URC sprints put on a great show when they are in town and we will try to make it up to Bob and the club next season,” Serrano added.

Originally the modifieds were scheduled to compete in ‘Twin 20s’ this coming Saturday to decide the 2012 championship. The ‘Twin 20’ format has been scrapped and replaced with a traditional 30-lap feature that will carry double points. The modified lineup is set for the first 30-lap event which will be held earlier in the evening before going into the regularly scheduled heat races for the night’s second 30 lap race. Ryan Godown currently leads last week’s winner Willie Osmun, Ron John Koczon, Tad Cox, and defending track champion Billy Pauch. In an event of another weather related postponement, the same format will be held on Saturday, October 13th during Rocktoberfest.

The TSRS 305 Sprints will follow the same format as the big blocks. Their held over 20-lap feature will take place early Saturday evening. The a complete show of heat races followed by a second 20-lap encore will round out the TSRS racing season at NES.

The Outlaw Stocks will still be a part of the show on Saturday. However, there will be no qualifying for the 25-lap feature. All starting positions will be based on a pill draw prior to the race.

Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with the first race starting at 6:00 pm. For more information, call the speedway office at (609) 758-1900 or log on to www.newegyptspeedway.net
