On Saturday, June 20 C&M Automotive Warehouse will proudly host
"Xtreme/Father's Day Night". Joining the Big Block Modifieds, Super
Stocks, Crate-1 Sportsman, SS Sprints and Rookies will be the annual
"Father's Day Races." The Sportsman and Outlaw Stock divisions are
not on the racing card, however they are more than welcome to bring
their race cars on Saturday and put 'Pop' behind the wheel.
The SS Sprints will make their 2009 debut as well. A 20-lap main
event is on the agenda with a special twist involved. At the half-way
mark, the field will stop on the track while the leader draws a
numbered pill to invert the field for the remaining 10 laps. Rounding
out the race program will be an intermission exhibition of races put
on by the NJXOR. The off-road racers will demonstrate just what they
will be doing for their upcoming July 11 race at NES. "Cruise Night"
will be rescheduled later in the season. Gates will open at 4pm
while the first green flies at 6pm. Adults are $20, Kids 12-15-$10
and Children 11 and under are FREE.
The rained out "Mechanics' Races" will now take place on Saturday,
June 27. "Many of the drivers were planning on letting their crewmen
jump behind the wheel of the car that they turn the wrenches on. We
certainly wanted to reschedule these races as mechanics were already
registered and more were planning on signing up this past Saturday,"
offered track manager Danny Serrano. Also on the racing card that
night is the Rookie Graduation for all of the Advantage
Financial/Cradlerock Developers rookie drivers. Five-time winner DJ
Ruppert currently holds on to a 12 point lead over three-time winner
Brian Roemer. In recognition of the Rookies graduating, NES is
offering any students (with copy of diploma) of a 2009 middle school,
high school, or college graduating class free admission to the races
The anticipated "Big Wheel Races" for the children will now be held
