Dominick Buffalino is Modified Big Daddy Saturday at New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ (June 19, 2010) - Dominick Buffalino of Morganville, NJ
picked up his first victory of the season at New Egypt Speedway on
Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap Father's Day Weekend feature
event sponsored by B & B Towing and Auto Recycling. Buffalino took
command just after halfway and ran away and hid from the outstanding
27 car field. The victory marked the 5th win of his career, his first
in almost two years.
"The car was perfect in the feature," exclaimed Buffalino after the
race, "I knew the car was good at the start, and even though I
started fifth I took my time in the beginning. I'll tell you that I
didn't know how far ahead I was so I ran hard right till the end, The
way Rick (Laubach) & Billy (Pauch) have been lately I was expecting
them to come blowing by me so I never let up."
Buffalino started 5th and watched as Tom Carberry and John Miloszar
battled for the lead early with Miloszar taking control on the second
lap. Miloszar was fast and was easily pacing the field until
Buffalino took second on lap 10. All eyes at this point had turned to
David Van Horn, who was up to 4th already from his 16th starting spot
making his presence known. Buffalino quickly grabbed the crowds
attention back as he reeled in the leader and began applying the
pressure to Miloszar. One lap after halfway, Buffalino completed a
nice pass as he pulled a nice slider in turn four to assume command.
Once he front he wasted no time running away and hiding as Miloszar
tried to hold onto second. Van Horn and 2-time champ Jimmy Horton
were both coming on strong and put on a great 3 car battle with
Miloszar over the final 10 laps with both finally getting by. At the
finish, Buffalino won his first by an impressive 5 seconds over Van
Horn as he nipped Horton at the line. Horton settled for third, with
Miloszar matching his best finish again with his second fourth place
finish in a month. Tad Cox grabbed his first top five of the season
with a great run over the final 10 laps in the very bottom groove as
he stole fifth from Frank Cozze Jr. at the stripe.      

Defending champion Jon Haegele won the Crate-1 Sportsman 20 lap
feature, taking the lead early and never looking back. Chris Allen
Jr. tried in vain to win on his sponsor's night and settled for a
solid second. Brian Papiez got back on track with a nice third
followed by point leader bryan Kuhl and Kyle Borror.    

In the second appearance of the Tobias Speedsters, former NES Super
Stock standout Mario Page won his first event at NES in almost 8
years. Page finished second last month, but came out and improved
that by one spot this time. Steve Hicks crossed the line in second
chased by Gary Huber, Gary Hieber Jr. and Doug Sherwood.

The Fastrak Late Models saw Steve Davis sweep the twin 12 lap
features over the largest field so far for this brand new division.
For Davis it was the third time he has swept a night this year and he
now has 7 wins on the season. In the first race, Tony Giglio chased
Davis to the finish followed by Darin Henderson. In the second race,
Davis wasted no time as he had the lead by lap 3 after starting last
in the 8 car field. Former Sportsman driver Kenny VanDerveer was up
visiting from NC and brought his Fastrak Late Model with him and he
posted a second behind Davis followed by Mick Search in third.

The Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman
series saw Bill Lester win his fifth feature of the season, his third
in a row. Lester padded his point lead by beating Danny DeStefano &
Dave Damiano to the checkered.

The Father's Day races held at the end of the night for Dad's of the
drivers saw two former drivers pick up the victories in the 5 lap
exhibition races. Tim Tanner Sr. won the Stock car event, while
Richie Page Sr. grabbed top honors in the SpeedSTR event.
Next Saturday night, June 26th, New Egypt Speedway will graduate
their Rookie class into the Sportsman division. The Advantage
Financial/Cradlerock Developers Rookie Sportsman Series will crown
their champ at the end of their double point event. The Big-Block
Modifieds, Sportsman, & Outlaw Stocks are all also in action. Gates
