NJXOR Extreme Racing Ends Season At New Egypt Speedway


New Egypt, NJ (September 26, 2009) – The NJXOR Extreme Racing series ended its
season Saturday, September 26, at New Egypt Speedway. Pro Buggy driver Bob Klaus of Freehold, NJ dominated the division all night to claim the victory and the division’s season championship. Klaus led for all but one lap of the feature event surrendering the lead briefly to second place finisher Dave Lofland after the only battle for the lead all evening on lap four. After recapturing the lead on lap 5, Klaus went on to pull away from Lofland and dominate the remaining laps of the event. Rounding out the top five in the Pro Buggy feature was Dustin Pittman of Jefferson Hills, PA; Tom Suralo of Mays Landing, NJ; and Tom Hood of Ashland, PA.


Also in action on Saturday night were the 8 Cylinder Trucks, 4 and 6 Cylinder Truck, and Rock Buggy divisions. Michael Chavette of Ellington, CT visited Victory Lane for the 8 Cylinder Trucks after then-leader Jeremy Crone lost the lead on the final lap after hitting the last jump with his front bumper and breaking going into the final turn. Chavette had been fighting Crone for the top stop for the final 5 laps of the event and took over the lead after Crone’s troubles.


In the 4 and 6 Cylinder Truck division Scott Morrison of Browns Mills, NJ dominated the event taking the lead in the first turn on the first lap and never looking back. While facing no serious challenge for the lead in the 10-lap feature event, Morrison finished a full straight away ahead of runner-up JW Scherm of Beachwood, NJ. As Morrison captured the victory, Jeff Semmelrock of Willington, CT was crowned the 4 and 6 Cylinder Truck champion.


After a hard fought battle in their second heat event that turned into their feature event, Doug Bigelow captured the victory and championship in the Rock Buggy division. Bigelow was challenged for the lead briefly by competitor Lou Levy who found himself stuck in the final rock hurdle and on fire. However, Levy quickly got out of his buggy and extinguished the fire himself, but was done for the evening.
