YOUNG GUNS READY TO MAKE AN ASSAULT ON NES MODS
For the first time in many seasons, the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds will welcome four rookie drivers when the 2022 season kicks off on Saturday, April 2nd.
Heading the foursome will be second generation driver Justin Grosso. The recently crowned Sportsman champ had a banner year capturing five wins in the Marty Resnick #13R. In addition, he recorded six wins in the family-owned Crate #J24.
The Belle Mead resident will be teaming up with brother Brandon in a Bicknell chassied machine with sponsorship coming from Grosso Homes, Metal Fab, York Fence, and Dave Yaros Paving.
Our 2018 rookie champion, Ryan Heim will be ready to meet the tough competition in a Teo chassied car sponsored by A Plus Insulation and Cramers Metal Recycling.
A seven-time winner in the rookie division, the Parkertown resident captured a big sportsman win in 2019. The team ended their 2021 season early in preparation for the big move, but still managed a ninth-place finish in the final sportsman point standings.
Anthony Tramontana Jr. notched four feature wins on route to capturing the 2019 rookie championship. A tough campaigner week in and week out, the Vineland driver was able to win his first crate feature last season on September 18th.
Finishing fourth in the 2021 crate point standings, the second-generation driver is anxiously awaiting the start of the season sitting behind the wheel of a 2022 Bicknell machine powered by a Morgantini built motor. Sponsorship will come from Mancini Custom Homes and J Mears Home Improvement.
A co-champion in the 2020 rookie points race, Paul Mancini will be another young chauffer looking to make his mark when the green flag drops on opening night.
Posting two big crate victories in 2021, the talented New Gretna driver will be driving a 2022 Bicknell powered by a potent Morrrison motor. Mancini Custom Homes will serve as the primary sponsor with additional sponsorship coming from 84 Lumber and Better Housekeeping.
The track surface is readily being prepared for the start of the season and the four rookies along with a host of others will be looking for a spot in the modified Cabin Fever 40. The nights action will begin promptly at 6PM with warmups scheduled for 5PM. Joining the modifieds will be the Crates, NEWS, 4-Cylinders, and the Crate Rookies.
