Rocco Infante & Jon
Haegele Share Spotlight in New Egypt Finale
New Egypt, NJ (November 12, 2011)
Infante of Robbinsville, NJ and Jon Haegele of
Ivyland, PA both visited the winner’s circle this
Saturday afternoon in the season finale at New Egypt
Speedway sponsored by Spike-N-Go. Infante pocketed
$1500 for winning the 42 lap John Romano Jr. Memorial
event for the second straight year. Haegele meanwhile
took home $2000 for his win in the 50 lap Friends of
Mike "Gritty 50" Crate-1 Sportsman feature.
At the drop of the green it was Brian Roemer charging
out to the early lead. Roemer lead the way for the
first 4 laps before Paul Kline worked his way by for
the lead. However, Kline’s turn in the top spot was
short lived as on the very next lap Danny Bouc flew
around Kline on the outside in dramatic fashion to
assume command. Bouc was flying around the outside and
he stretched his lead as Infante worked his way into
second. It appeared that Infante didn’t have enough to
catch the high-flying Bouc as he was not making up any
ground at all, when suddenly Bouc’s mount broke ending
a great effort. From this point on it was all Infante,
as the 3-time reigning champ pulled away at will and
cruised to his 6th win. Mike Lyons was a solid but
distant second, chased across the line by Mike
Howardson. Dave Witte finished fourth and Bob Lineman
Jr. rounded out the top five.
Jon Haegele posted his third feature victory of the
season in the Crate-1 Sportsman "Friends of
Mike" Gritty 50 lapper. Neal Williams took the early
lead in the event. 10 laps into the race he was being
heavily challenged by both Haegele and Bryan Kuhl when
he spun in turn #2. With Williams rejoining the field
at the rear, Kuhl and Haegele put on a nice duel for
the lead, exchanging the top spot a couple of times.
At the halfway sign Williams had climbed all the way
back to sixth and he quickly made himself noticed as
he charged into second by lap 35. Williams ran down
Haegele quickly, but despite pulling alongside of him
almost every lap, he could not make the pass. With the
white flag waving, Williams finally pulled it off and
grabbed the lead. But Haegele would not be denied as
he ran him down in turn 3, dove under him and out
dragged Williams to the line with the crowd on their
feet! Williams settled for second in a
tremendous run, while Bryan Kuhl crossed the finish
line third. Brian Papiez came home fourth and Jordan
Henn, the Rocktoberfest winner, finished fifth.
In the 100 lap Enduro, Scott Dunn took the lead on lap
7 and never looked back to take the win. Tom Wolf
chased down Steve Wilson and got by him on lap 73 for
2nd which also made him the winner for the 8cylinders.
Wilson finished 3rd, Jim Watkins was 4th and
last week’s winner Randy Nelson rounded out the top 5.
Chuck Dunn beat out "Captain Crash" to win the record 18
car Demolition Derby and take home the $500 top prize.
This completes the 2011 racing schedule at New
Egypt Speedway. NES Management would like to thank
everyone for their support and patronage this season.
