Rain Stops New Egypt After Qualifying
New Egypt, NJ (April 28, 2012) – Rain showers that
were forecasted for late night on Saturday moved into the New Egypt
area with just one lap remaining in the Modified consolation event,
forcing the postponement of all of the scheduled feature events. With
Twin 20 lap Modified features on the schedule, along with features for
the Sportsman and Outlaw Stocks still remaining, speedway management
waited for an hour before the persistent rain forced them to call the
rest of the show.
All four feature events, the two 20-lap
Modified features, the 20 lap Sportsman main and the 20 lap Outlaw
Stock feature, will be run as extra bonus events during regular
Saturday shows in the near future. An announcement will be forthcoming
soon as to exact dates for each race. The one lap of the Modified
Consi that is remaining will be run the same night as the first 20 lap
The HCI/SpikeNGo Rookie Sportsman did get their 8 lap feature in the
books as Will Trstensky of Flemington, NJ won for the second straight
week. Trstensky took the lead on lap 2 from Lauren Emmons and went on
to win by 4 car lengths over point leader Matt Carman. Mike Carman
finished third again, keeping his streak of finishing in that position
in all four events held so far.
In Modified qualifying, the
three heat races run for the 33 cars on hand were won by Billy Pauch,
Tim Tanner and Tad Cox. Willie Osmun was leading the B Main when the
race was stopped due to the rain. Sportsman heats were captured by
Rocco Infante, Jeff Marcucci and Mike Hendershot with Ryan Anderson
winning the B Main. In Outlaw Stock action heats went to Bill Liedtka,
Vern McLaughlin and Jarrod Burdge while Everett Taylor raced home
first in the Consi.
Next Saturday night, May 5th, New Egypt
Speedway presents Downs Ford night. Racing will feature a full card of
Big-Block Modifieds, Crate-1 Sportsman, FASTRAK Late Models, the
Tri-State Race Savers 305 Sprint Cars and the HCI/SpikeNGo Rookie
Sportsman. 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)
