FoM Rescheduled - New Egypt Heats up with Three BIG Events!
New Egypt, NJ (August 24, 2009) - After suffering its third (Saturday) rainout of the 2009 season, the New Egypt Speedway is ready to get back in the full swing of stock car racing.  "It was going to be a lot of fun Saturday if we had raced," GM Danny Serrano explained.  "The modifieds had the night off from NES and were going to be down at Bridgeport for the Series, but we still had big plans for Saturday.  The five support divisions were going to be in the limelight especially the Super Stocks and Crate-1 divisions.  They were competing in their 'Friends of Mike' Races with each feature paying $1,000 to win plus there was Heat Race money on the line.  We also had a '70s Night' theme planned where we had music from the 70s that was going to be played all night long.  Our employees were going to be dressed up as if we were all back in the 1970s and a constume contest for the fans was going to be held at intermission."  
The Friends of Mike Races for the Super Stocks and Crate-1 divisions will be rescheduled for Saturday, September 5th.  Meanwhile, the 70s theme night will be rescheduled for Saturday, September 19th. 
NES will be in action three times this coming week.  On Wednesday, August 26th the 'Summer Sizzler' starts off the first of the three races.  The BPG Tri-Track Modifieds will wage war in a 40-lap affair for all the bragging rights.  New Egypt hot shoes Billy Pauch, Rick Laubach, Frank Cozze, Bob Drayton, and Richie Pratt will be taking on plenty of outsiders on this hot summer night.  Danny Johnson, Jimmy Horton, Jeff Strunk, Wade Hendrickson, Ryan Watt, Chad James, Jimmy  Chester and a host of others are all expected to be in the house trying to steal the $3,000 top prize.  Along with the Modifieds will be the ever-popular ARDC Midgets.  ARDC makes their one and only appearance of the 2009 season and you can bet it will be a 'barn burner' as the midgets always fly around NES.  Pit gates open at 4:30 p.m. and the grandstands open at 5:00 p.m.  Pit admission is $30 with any track/club license and $40 w/o.  General Admission is $23 for adults, $21 for Seniors/Military, $10 for Kids 12-15, and children 11 and under are FREE.  The first green flag will drop at 7:15 p.m.
Then on Saturday, August 29th NES is back in action for "Bike Night."  Anyone arriving on a motorcycle will receive half-off admission into the grandstands.  There will also be a 'Biker Costume Contest' at intermission.  And to cap of intermission in style, the drivers themselves have donated 20 bicycles for giveaways for the kids.  The Modifieds, Sportsman, and Super Stocks will all be in action on Saturday evening.
On Sunday afternoon the second Demolition Derby of the will take place at the Speedway.  All the smashing and crashing will take place in the 'ring' in the middle of the track while there will be plenty of action on the racetrack.  Joining the Demo Derby will be a 50-lap Enduro, Outlaw Stocks, Crate-1 Sportsman, and the Vintage Cars.  All the action starts at 1pm.
