Carpenter Hammers Out Victory on Day of Destruction at New Egypt 

New Egypt, NJ (August 26, 2007) -  Jimmy Carpenter of Manchester, NJ
was flawless on Sunday afternoon at New Egypt Speedway as posted his
first ever feature win in the 20 lap 600cc Micro Sprint feature.
Carpenter proved he was the class of the field as he led every lap of
both his heat race and the feature event sweeping the Micro Sprint
portion of New Egypt's Day of Destruction. Second heat winner Tim
Iulg finished a close second but was unable to challenge Carpenter in
the late stages. John Carpenter came home third followed by Travis
Unglert fourth and Rich Mellor in fifth. Completing the top ten were
Rob Vivona, Kyle Newcomb, Stewart Carmicheal, Eddie Wagner and Bill
Unglert. 

The first ever Demolituion Derby held at New Egypt Speedway went to
Lane Hirschfeld as he survived the 9 car finale. Heats were won by
Matt Phillips, Steve Curlis, Katie Lyons and Jarrett Horner. The
field was then filled by taking a fans choice by applause out of each
heat along with an officials choice.

In the first ever Enduro at NES, Glenn Osborne of Howell, NJ took the
victory by 8 car lengths over Sean Elk. Scott Dunn finished in third,
followed by Joe Garey and Kenny Huchko.

The Vintage stocks raced in a 15 lap event, and Wayne Weaver again
showed he is the car to beat as he cruised to the victory. Doug Dial
and Ken Pullen finished second and third respectively.

This Saturday, September 1st, it will be Back To School Wing Night
and Modified Championship Night. The URC Sprints will make their
fourth appearance of the season while the DIRTcar Modifieds compete

Sheppard has a slim 10 point advantage over Ryan Godown. Sportsman
and Super Stocks will also be on the card. Gates open at 4 p.m. with
