Martz Magnificent in New Egypt Modifieds


New Egypt, NJ (June 28, 2008) – Sam Martz of Whitehouse Station, NJ won his first event of the season Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap Modified feature at New Egypt Speedway. Martz led wire to wire to take the checkered in the non-stop event sponsored by K&A Excavating and Agin Signs.


"We have had some really bad luck lately," stated an exuberant Martz in victory lane, "Maybe this will turn things around for us again!”


Martz started on the outside pole and immediately grabbed the lead at the onset. Martz set a fast pace early as the last two winners, Frank Cozze and Keith Hoffman moved quickly into the top ten. Although Martz never dominated, he drove a flawless race hitting his marks on every single lap as he led all 30 laps. The field seemed very even on this night, as Martz only lapped one car during the non-stop event, and that was with 5 laps to go. This is even more impressive considering that 22 of the 25 cars that started finished the event. Modified Rookie Bill Paulmenn impressed all in attendance as he held off tad Cox to record his best finish ever at NES with a second. Cox came home third, with former winner Dominick Buffalino fourth and Brian Godown  fifth.


In the Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman series, Andy Visinski has turned it on late in the series as he won for the second straight week. Two-time winner Gabe Fox tried everything he could think of but could not complete the pass for the win. Fox however, may have lost the battle, but won the war as he became the 12th driver in NES history to be able to be called “Rookie Champion.” Kevin Vaclavicek finished right behind Fox in third, followed by Bobby Sandt Jr. and Chris Allen Jr.


In the Sportsman division John Romano, Jr. of New Egypt, NJ won his third event of the season, as he slipped past Frank Cozze Jr. with just 2 laps to go. Romano picked up a $300 bonus from Rick Agin of Agin Signs, tonights sponsor. Cozze settled for his best finish to date, taking second.  Clay Butler crossed the line in third, followed by Gary Butler and point leader Willie Osmun.


The first ever appearance at NES for the Tobias SpeedSTRs saw Modified standout Billy Pauch do what he does best to take the inaugural event. Nick Pecko finished a strong second ahead of Toby Tobias Jr.  Billy VanInwegen was fourth and Jim Scherer finished fifth.


The Super Stocks ran two features tonight, making up their postponed feature from May 3rd before running their regularly scheduled feature event.  George Quinlan won the make up feature, his first of the year, chased across the line by Kory Fleming, Rob Ormsbee, Billy Bauer and Tod Cray. Mr. Super Stock 2008 Bob Vaccaro took the  nightcap over Bauer, Cray, Fleming and Kenny Hammond.


Art Liedl of Flemington, NJ took the 15 lap SS Sprint feature as he outpaced Ed Hughes and Rick Cozze.


Next Sat. night, June 5th, it will be the fourth leg of the 8 race Dual track series at New Egypt Speedway sponsored by Hoffman Bros. Speed and Performance. Headlining the card will be the big-block Modifieds in the 30 lap Dual Track series race, along with the Fan Favorite Match Races for the Modifieds. Joining the Mods on the card are the Sportsman, Super Stocks, Outlaw Stocks and the Crate-1 Sportsman.  Fireworks will also be on tap to close out the night.
