Jeff Strunk Wins Cabin Fever 60 at New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ (March 26, 2011) Jeff Strunk of Bechtelsville, PA captured the Race of Champions Modified Tour Cabin Fever 60 at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night. Strunk took the lead on lap 50 when leader Danny Johnson got a left rear flat. Strunk then raced to his first ever Modified win at New Egypt Speedway ahead of a hard charging Jimmy Horton. Strunk took home $10,185 for his efforts with lap money and also gained a guaranteed starting spot in Big Diamond Raceway's ROC Anthracite Assault on June 22.

Jimmy Horton, using a provisional and his back-up car, charged from 25th starting postion to finish second. Billy Decker had a strong run for third, early race leader Stewart Friesen came home fourth and Ryan Watt came back from an early race incident to round out the top five.

Completing the top ten were Bobby Varin, Danny Johnson, Brett Hearn, Pat Ward and Frank Cozze Jr.

In the ROC Sportsman feature event Bob Lineman Jr. of Doylestown, PA also won his first ever event at New Egypt Speedway. Lineman won a race long battle with Kyle Borror and then held off defending ROC Sportsman champ Jeff Crambo of Throop, PA for the popular victory. Crambo finished second in his first ever trip to the central jersey oval. Clay Butler charged to third followed by early leader Mike Lyons in fourth, as both returned to the front after an early race tangle with two-time NES champ Rocco Infante while battling for the lead that sent all three of them to the tail. Mike Butler rounded out the top five.

Kyle Borror, Rocco Infante, Brad Szulewski, Nick Petrilak and John Aumick completed the top ten.
