Heavy Mist & Fog Postpones New Egypt Main Events
New Egypt, NJ (May 3, 2008) - A increasingly heavy mist during the
running of Saturday nights program forced New Egypt Speedway
officials to postpone all of tonight's feature events except for one.
After a cloudy start, fog began rolling in about an hour into the
show accompanied by a light mist which steadily became heavier
throughout qualifying. As the feature events began, the mist became
too heavy to allow competition to continue safely and management was
left no choice but to pull the plug.
"We met with the drivers and they felt that the conditions had become
unsafe," stated co-owner Bill Miscoski, "The last thing we wanted to
do was send the fans, who braved the elements, home before the show
was complete; however the weather was beginning to adversely effect
the safety and quality of the racing on the speedway and we were left
with only one choice."
The SS Sprint feature event was under a red flag just 2 laps into the
15 lap event when the decision was made. This feature will be
completed next Saturday night along with the postponed 20 lap A-1
Racing Products Sportsman feature event. The 15 lap Super Stock
feature will then be run in two weeks on Saturday, May 17th, along
with the postponed Modified B Main & 30-lap Modified feature. These
will all be in addition to the scheduled events at no increase in the
The Outlaw Stocks did run their 15 lap feature event with defending
champion Gary Klimeczak taking his first victory of the season, the
ninth of his career. Veteran Spider Ensinger Sr. finished second,
followed by Rich Smith, Whitey Miller and Dan Collamer.
The Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman
Series 8 lap feature saw Gabe Fox win for the second time in three
tries. Kevin Vaclavicek drove a strong race to finish second and last
week's winner Rob Stump was third.
Tomorrow afternoon, Sunday May 4th, New Egypt Speedway will be back
in action with the second show for the 600cc Micro Sprints. Legend
Cars, Crate-1 Sportsman and the Garden State Vintage Stock Cars will
