Carnesville,GA (Nov-4) In an unprecedented move in an area where big block modifieds are king and have enjoyed a storied and rich history spanning generations, the FASTRAK Racing Series announced today the addition of New Egypt Speedway in New Egypt NJ to the growing network of tracks sanctioned by the Carnesville, GA based national sanctioning body. Not only will New Egypt Speedway, located between Philadelphia and New York City feature FASTRAK Racing Series Late Models in 2010, but in the years to follow as well according to New Egypt Speedway track manager Danny Serrano.
“We are committed to this long term” said Serrano. ‘While many tracks look for instant results when going in a new direction, we’ve done the exact opposite here at NES. Our big block modifieds will always be our marquis headliner, but we feel that based on the growth of the FASTRAK Racing Series, and the overwhelming success of the level playing field environment FASTRAK maintains for all its teams, we felt the addition of the FASTRAK Racing Series here at New Egypt is a win- win not only for the competitors, but our fans.”
Serrano went on to add “as racy as our facility is, the addition of a class where everyone has the same motors and the same tires should produce some pretty exciting racing. FASTRAK is pretty adamant when it comes to the rules and it seems they have succeeded in this area where others have struggled.”
“We think there is a place in this area for the crate late models” said Serrano. We’re definitely going to stick with this program; in fact we’re planning on a worst case scenario. We have a five year plan in place. We know the number of cars that start the 2010 season will be slim. We’re looking for at least five to begin the year and expect it will grow. Hopefully, before the fourth year in, we’ll have a full field each night. We vow to remain committed and patient.”
“From a race fan standpoint, our goal is to offer our fans different classes of race cars that are not similar in looks.”
New Egypt Speedway is the first track to be sanctioned in the new FASTRAK Racing Series North Atlantic Region and Regional Director Michael Sweet. The FASTRAK North Atlantic Region is comprised of Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont.
“New Egypt Speedway is a first class facility” said Sweet. “I’m looking forward to working with Danny and everyone at NES. We’re proud to be involved with them. The FASTRAK concept allows a racer the opportunity to put together a competitive piece at a reasonable cost. The rules mandated by the series are as fair and balanced as any I know of anywhere in the country. Once the drivers get to know us and how FASTRAK operates, they’ll love it.”
Sweet is hoping the early New Egypt Speedway announcement will help sway tracks currently on the fence in terms of plans for the 2010 racing season. “If we can get four or five tracks in this region, we can then schedule regional touring races as well as create a FASTRAK North Atlantic Touring Series complete with a point championship earmarked exclusively for those who compete in this region.”
“This is just the beginning” says Sweet.
