Cozze Cashes In at New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ (September 22, 2007) - Frank Cozze of Wind Gap, PA
captured his fifth main event of the season on Saturday night at New
Egypt Speedway as he won the Big Block Modified 30 lap DIRTcar
Modified feature. Cozze cashed in for a $3000 payday as he went wire
to wire to post his 22nd career victory at NES.

"We were lucky enough to draw the pole" stated Cozze in the winner's
circle, "We have lost numerous times from the pole, so there are no
guarantees, but tonight it was our turn."

Cozze, who won the last point show back on September 1st, drew the #1
pill and lead the field to starter Warren Alston's green flag. Cozze
looked strong from the start, and he left no doubt in anyone's mind
that he was the man to beat on this night. Keith Hoffman tried to
stay with Cozze during the first 10 laps, but was unable to challenge
before a mechanical failure brought an end to his night. Sam Martz
and Bob Drayton then took up the chase but they were no match for the
stout #44 of Cozze. Ryan Godown then entered the scene with 12 laps
to go, and although he was able to keep Cozze in view, he was unable
to mount any kind of a challenge in the late stages, even thru two
late race restarts. It was all Cozze on this night as he cruised
under the checkered flags for his fifth win of the season. Godown ran
a strong second while invader Jeff Strunk came to life late to finish
third. Drayton raced home in the fourth position, while Ron John
Koczon finished a solid fifth.

The 25 lap Sportsman season finale was won by Glenn Hisko of
Bridgewater, NJ. Hisko put it all together on this night holding off
a fast John Romano, Jr. to collect his first victory of the season.
Early race leader Lou Farina put in an excellent effort finishing
third, followed by Dave Hunt and Mike Howardson. Willie Osmun of
Bloomsbury, NJ finished sixth to claim his first ever NES track

Matt Kall of Lambertville, NJ won his first ever feature in the 25
lap Super Stock event holding off many challenges from numerous
drivers throughout the event. Mick Search finished right on Kall's
bumper to take second, with Kory Fleming posting a solid third. Steve
Davis and former champ Billy Bauer rounded out the top five. George
Quinlan rebounded from last year to become the 2007 Super Stock

The 20 lap feature for the Lucas Ford SS Sprints saw another first
time winner as Rich Janney of Halifax, PA captured his first feature
of his career. Five time winner Ken Carberry finished a close second,
followed by early leader Dave Martin, Tom Wyckoff, and Art Liedl. By
virtue of his fifth place finish, Art Liedl claimed the 2007 SS
Sprint track championship, his fourth in a row.    

The Outlaw Stock 12 lap feature went to Brian Ludwig for the fourth
time this season, chased by 7 time winner Gary Klimeczak and Rob
Longo across the line. Klimeczak became the first ever Outlaw Stock
Champion at NES. This was true in the Crate 1 Sportsman race also, as
E.J. Harrington not only won the 12 lap event, but was crowned the
first ever Crate 1 Sportsman champion at the speedway. Scott
Cranstoun and Richie Cass, Sr. finished in second and third

The Run What You Brung show scheduled for next Saturday night,
September 29th, has been cancelled.  The next events at New Egypt
