Tanner Wins Eleventh
of His Career at New Egypt
New Egypt, NJ (August 7, 2010)
– Tim Tanner, Jr. of Ivyland, PA picked up the eleventh feature
triumph of his career at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night as he
captured the 30 lap feature event sponsored by T&M Associates. Tanner
did something that most drivers have not been able to do at NES this
season, dominate the competition. Tanner won his heat by over a
straightaway and then proved it was no fluke as he charged to the lead
on lap 5 and never looked back. Despite several caution flags spread
out thru the race, Tanner would pull away from the field each and
every time. Tanner survived a last turn near miss with a lapped car to
take his second win of the year over 2 time champ Jimmy Horton.
“I want to thank my dad and crew for putting this car here,” announced
Tanner in victory lane, “Without their contributions and hard work
this isn’t possible.”
Tanner started 7th on the grid and wasted
no time as he was up to third by the completion of lap one. He was
obviously dialed in as he flew past Tad Cox for second on lap 2 and
set his sights on leader Gary Butler. Butler, the outside pole
starter, had opened up a healthy lead however Tanner would only need a
mere 3 laps to catch and pass him for the lead. At the same time 12th
starting Jimmy Horton and 18th starter Billy Pauch moved into the top
five and everyone in attendance thought that it was now just a matter
of time. Tanner had other ideas though as he pulled away from the pack
and ran uncontested thru several double file restarts. Halfway through
the event Horton made a great move and passed both Butler and Pauch to
move into second with Pauch on his bumper. This didn’t phase Tanner
though as he steadily pulled away from these two multi-time track
champions. The final caution of the event flew with just 10 laps
remaining as Pauch’s motor let go in turn number four. Horton stayed
2-3 car lengths behind Tanner for several laps before Tanner started
to pull away again, and was about 8 car lengths ahead on the final
turn when he had to slow as he attempted to pass the lapped car of
Brian Crammer. Tanner moved to the far outside as Horton gave it one
last ditch kamikaze move on the very bottom of the speedway. The move
was almost successful until Horton ran out of racing room and slammed
into Crammer’s lapped car. Horton bounced off and continued to cross
the line second. Fourteenth starter Frank Cozze came home third,
followed by Johnny Guarino in fourth and Bobby Drayton in fifth who
both also came from deep in the pack.
Bryan Kuhl took sole possession of the Crate-1 Sportsman Point lead as
he finally won his first feature of the season and of his career. Kyle
Borror continues to be fast every week as he finished a close second
chased home by Chris Allen Jr. in third. Bobby Dmuchowski and John
Aumick rounded out the top five.
Jeff Geiges won his second Sprint car feature of the season as he
captured the 20 lap Tri-State RaceSavers 305 Sprint car event. Geiges
dedicated the race to the late John Romano, Jr. who was the former
driver of the Pietrofitta #175. Johnny Wyers, who had won the last two
races on the tour settled for second on this night, followed by early
leader Bruce Kindberg, Ryan Smith and two time NES winner Chuck
The Fastrak Late Models ran two 12 lap features with Darrin Henderson
of Pasadena, MD taking top honors in the first one for his second win
in a row. Henderson was trailed by Mick Search and Skip Syester who
was competing at NES for the first time. Former Super Stock racer Tony
Giglio, who had finished second or third in fie of the last seven
events, captured his first ever feature win in any division in the
second event. Bobby Dmuchowski finished off a successful night with a
second place run in only his second race in a Late Model while PJ
Oliver cruised home third.
Next Saturday night, August 14th, New Egypt Speedway will present the
always popular Powder Puff Night as the wives and girlfriends of many
drivers will take to the track at the end of the evening. Before these
events, the mighty Big-Block Modifeds will headline a racing card that
also features the Sportsman and the Outlaw Stocks. Gates will open at
4:00 p.m. with the first race starting at 6:00 pm. For more
