New Egypt, NJ – Memorial Day weekend is upon us at New Egypt Speedway and we are back in action this coming Saturday night May 27th featuring the Remember Our Veterans 40 for the 358 Modifieds that will pay $2,750 to the winner and also serve as “The Dirty Dozen” Round of 12 for May Modified Madness. This race was originally scheduled to be double points as well as the finale for the May Madness Modified Series but Mother Nature had other plans and is no longer.
