Covers Competition at New Egypt
Egypt, NJ (Aug. 2, 2008)
– Tom Carberry of Hopewell, NJ won his first event of the season
Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap Modified feature at New Egypt
Speedway. Carberry took advantage of a second row starting spot and
then sped away to victory on Cray Electric/Motorsports Night. The win
was the sixth if Carberry’s career at NES.
wasted no time when starter Warren Alston dropped the green flag on
the event as he quickly charged to the front from his fourth starting
position. Once in front Carberry stretched his lead as eighth starting
Bob Drayton battled with Mike McAleer for the second position. A lap
11 caution for a frontstretch tangle involving 2-time champ Frank
Cozze and one of last week’s winners Tad Cox tightened up the field,
but Carberry again took control on the restart. Setting a torrid pace,
only Drayton was able to keep Carberry’s familiar yellow #23 in his
sights as the two of them left everyone racing for third. Drayton
appeared to be closing in on the lead in heavy lapped traffic when the
third & final caution was displayed with just four laps remaining.
This put fifteenth starter Rick Laubach in position to challenge as he
had just moved into third place. However, Carberry proved it would be
his night as he sped away to claim the victory by five car lengths as
Drayton and Laubach battled over second. Drayton was successful
holding off the persistent Laubach over the final four circuits as he
equaled his best finish of the year in second. Laubach settled for a
strong third, followed by three-time champ Billy Pauch and Tim Tanner,
Jr. who both utilized a great final restart to complete the top five.

chased across the line by McClelland in third. Former champion Gary
Butler posted another top five in fourth while John Romano, Jr.
rounded out the top five.
two-time champion Rob Ormsbee of Wall, NJ picked up his third win of
2008 in the 20 lap Super Stock feature. Ormsbee held off Bill Liedtka
