THE JERSEY RUSH 2 AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY
THE ULTIMATE DOUBLE HEADER. . . . .
410 SPRINTS & MODIFIEDS RETURN FOR ROUND TWO OF THE JERSEY RUSH AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, AUGUST 21
Itís coming back, the return of the JERSEY RUSH, only at the New Egypt Speedway.
Tuesday night, August 21 the 410 sprints make their one and only visit of the year to the New Egypt Speedway in a popular double header with the modifieds. This event proved to be a thriller with JJ Grasso scoring his first career 410 sprint win and collecting $5,000 along the way in the 2011 inaugural running of the Jersey Rush. Grasso beat out an impressive field that included Mark Smith, Daryn Pittman, Lance Dewease and Fred Rahmer. In the modified feature, Billy Pauch was the winner, taking the victory in dramatic style. The event last year drew a huge crowd even with threats of rain and lingering debris left behind by Hurricane Irene.
The Jersey Rush 2 is building with excitement as well as a roster of talented 410 sprint drivers already planning to take part in the event. Fred Rahmer, Lance Dewease and Daryn Pittman are just some of the drivers who plan to be in the field. The question is, will defending winner JJ Grasso have a 410 sprint ride for the Jersey Rush 2? Grasso of Pedricktown, NJ is hot off a URC sprint feature win Saturday night at New Egypt Speedway.
In the event of rain, Wednesday night, August 22 will be the rain date for the Jersey Rush 2 with gates opening at 5 PM and race time set for 7:30 PM.
Also returning as part of the Jersey Rush 2 will be the Pre-Race FanFest, when race fans are welcome to enter the pit area (5 PM to 6 PM) to view the cars and meet their favorite 410 sprint drivers and modified drivers.
More details to come on the 2012 JERSEY RUSH 2 at New Egypt Speedway on Tuesday night, August 21. Gates open at 5 PM with race time set for 7:30 PM.
The Jersey Rush 2 is a co-promotion between Lenny, Danny and Davey Sammons and special events organizer Bob Miller.
