Martz Magnificent in New Egypt Modifieds

New Egypt, NJ (June 28, 2008) - Sam Martz of Whitehouse Station, NJ
won his first event of the season Saturday night as he captured the
30 lap Modified feature at New Egypt Speedway. Martz led wire to wire
to take the checkered in the non-stop event sponsored by K&A
Excavating and Agin Signs.

"We have had some really bad luck lately," stated an exuberant Martz
in victory lane, "Maybe this will turn things around for us again!"  

Martz started on the outside pole and immediately grabbed the lead at
the onset. Martz set a fast pace early as the last two winners, Frank
Cozze and Keith Hoffman moved quickly into the top ten. Although
Martz never dominated, he drove a flawless race hitting his marks on
every single lap as he led all 30 laps. The field seemed very even on
this night, as Martz only lapped one car during the non-stop event,
and that was with 5 laps to go. This is even more impressive
considering that 22 of the 25 cars that started finished the event.
Modified Rookie Bill Paulmenn impressed all in attendance as he held
off tad Cox to record his best finish ever at NES with a second. Cox
came home third, with former winner Dominick Buffalino fourth and
Brian Godown  fifth.

In the Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman
series, Andy Visinski has turned it on late in the series as he won
for the second straight week. Two-time winner Gabe Fox tried
everything he could think of but could not complete the pass for the
win. Fox however, may have lost the battle, but won the war as he
became the 12th driver in NES history to be able to be called "Rookie
Champion." Kevin Vaclavicek finished right behind Fox in third,
followed by Bobby Sandt Jr. and Chris Allen Jr.

In the Sportsman division John Romano, Jr. of New Egypt, NJ won his
third event of the season, as he slipped past Frank Cozze Jr. with
just 2 laps to go. Romano picked up a $300 bonus from Rick Agin of
Agin Signs, tonights sponsor. Cozze settled for his best finish to
date, taking second.  Clay Butler crossed the line in third, followed
by Gary Butler and point leader Willie Osmun.

The first ever appearance at NES for the Tobias SpeedSTRs saw
Modified standout Billy Pauch do what he does best to take the
inaugural event. Nick Pecko finished a strong second ahead of Toby
Tobias Jr.  Billy VanInwegen was fourth and Jim Scherer finished

The Super Stocks ran two features tonight, making up their postponed
feature from May 3rd before running their regularly scheduled feature
event.  George Quinlan won the make up feature, his first of the
year, chased across the line by Kory Fleming, Rob Ormsbee, Billy
Bauer and Tod Cray. Mr. Super Stock 2008 Bob Vaccaro took the
nightcap over Bauer, Cray, Fleming and Kenny Hammond.

Art Liedl of Flemington, NJ took the 15 lap SS Sprint feature as he
outpaced Ed Hughes and Rick Cozze.

Next Sat. night, June 5th, it will be the fourth leg of the 8 race
Dual track series at New Egypt Speedway sponsored by Hoffman Bros.
Speed and Performance. Headlining the card will be the big-block
Modifieds in the 40 lap Dual Track series race, along with the Fan
Favorite Match Races for the Modifieds. Joining the Mods on the card
are the Sportsman, Super Stocks, Outlaw Stocks and the Crate-1
Sportsman.  Fireworks will also be on tap to close out the night.
Gates open at 4:00 p.m. with first green at 5:30 pm. For more
