New Egypt Speedway Hosting Two Wednesday Practice Sessions

New Egypt, NJ – The start of the 13th racing season at the New Egypt Speedway is only a couple of weeks away.  But before the gates swing open on Saturday, April 17, NES will host two open practices for anyone wishing to shake their cars down before the season starts. 

The first practice will be held on Wednesday, April 7 and a second practice on Wednesday, April 14.  These two test and tune sessions will be free-to-the-public wishing to take in some action from the grandstands.  There will be a $30 entry for anyone that wants to enter the pit area.  The pit gates will open at 2pm with safety tech beginning at 3pm.  Race teams will be able to hit the track at 5pm for the first new laps of the 2010 season.

“We decided to go with a couple of Wednesday evening practices instead of the traditional Saturday before our opener,” track manager Danny Serrano explained.  “Bridgeport Speedway is opening that day and since they are dark on our opener we felt that it's only fair that we do the same for them.  It will also provide for a more racier surface for the drivers.  The night time conditions will be much closer to how the track usually is on a Saturday night.”

The Tri-Track big block modifieds will headline the 2010 opener on April 17 in the $3,000 to win ‘Cabin Fever’ 40-lap event sponsored by Roemer’s Paintless Dent Repair.   Defending track champion as well as Tri-Track Series champion Rick Laubach will lead a star-studded field into New Egypt Speedway on opening day that include multi-time track champions Billy Pauch, Jimmy Horton, and Frank Cozze.  The Bridgeport stars will be well represented as well with Wade Hendrickson, Richie Pratt Jr., Ryan Watt, Chic Cossaboone, and Jimmy Chester challenging the NES regulars in a fight to the end.  Also on the agenda that evening will be the Sportsman and Outlaw Stock divisions as they do battle in a pair of 20-lap events.  Not to be upstaged by the mightby big block modifieds, track champions Rocco Infante and Shanon Mongeau look to start off their title defense in 2010 by holding off a strong field of competitors on opening day.  The Advantage Financial/Cradlerock Developers Rookie Division will round out the racing card.
