David VanHorn Blitzes the Field on Youth Football Night at NES

(July 27, 2019):  David VanHorn of Ringoes, NJ won his second Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season on Eastern Auto Parts Warehouse Youth Football Night Saturday at New Egypt Speedway. The 2018 Modified champion, DVH charged to the front quickly and never looked back as he recorded his 8th career victory in the 30 lap non stop event, which was completed in just 9 minutes and 14 seconds.       

“I have to thank the guys up at DKM Fabrication, This car was on rails tonight!”, stated an elated VanHorn in victory lane, “I also want to thank my Dad for all of his help and Fred Vahlsing for giving me the opportunity to drive this car and all of his support” 

JR Fulper and Pat Wall brought the field to the green flag with Fulper taking command. This was short lived as Wall drove under Fulper on lap 3 to take over the lead. Wall had his #5w glued to the inside guardrail as he tried to open up a little breathing room on the field. Danny Bouc, who started in fifth, was on the move racing into second on lap 5. Meanwhile VanHorn was charging thru the field using the top groove and was suddenly in third closing in on the leaders.  Before Bouc could mount a serious challenge on Wall for the lead, DVH flew by on the outside sweeping to the front. Bouc quickly switched to the outside and followed VanHorn by Wall and into second. Bouc set his sights on reeling in VanHorn, however this was not to be as VanHorn’s #323 drove off into the night, while Bouc did everything he could to keep pace. With just 10 laps remaining lapped traffic came into play, but DVH handled it masterfully and cruised to the victory. Bouc settled for a solid and well-earned second place finish. Point leader Billy Pauch Jr. marched thru the field from his 13th starting position to come home third, Pat Wall used the inside groove to perfection finishing fourth and Mike Butler, who fell back in the pack early, came on strong late to finish in the top five.             

Rich Mellor of North Hanover Twp., NJ padded his point lead by scoring his 5th victory of the season in the Larry’s Hot Rods and Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint cars. Mellor took the lead before the halfway point of the 20 lap event and drove to his 7th career win. Brian Spencer came home second in his new car, followed by Heidi Hedin, Duane Nixon and John Brammell. 

David Burns of Flemington, NJ was victorious in the Hammer Sportsman 20 lap feature event, as he led his car owner and teammate Marty Resnick for most of the event when the races only caution flew on the final lap.  Burns kept control on the restart and scored his first win of 2019. Three-time champion Bob Lineman Jr. grabbed second on the final turn as Resnick settled for third. JT Trstensky and Art Liedl rounded out the top five.   

Brian Spencer outdueled point leader Billy Liedtka in just his second start for the 15 lap Street Stock victory. Spencer raced side by side with Liedtka over the final laps, beating the all-time leading Street Stock winner by a bumper at the stripe. Todd Dige finished third in his first time out this season, followed by Billy Wroble and Jim Avery.  

Next week Sat. night August 3rd, it is Scout night & Jeep Night 2 at New Egypt Speedway. All Scouts in uniform will get in for free & everyone who brings their Jeep will receive ½ price general admission and there will be a Jeep parade on the track at intermission. The Vahlco Wheels Modifieds will once again headline the event, and they will be joined on the track by the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harleys NEWS Sprint Cars, the Crate Modifieds and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-cylinders.  Gates will open at 5pm, with warm-ups at 6pm and the first race taking place at 7pm.

Sammons Links Up Win Number Two On Premio Foods Night At New Egypt Speedway

New Egypt, NJ – Bordentown, NJ’s Davey Sammons picked up his second career and second Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event win of the season at the New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night on Upper Freehold/Hamilton Township night presented by Premio Foods. Also earning victories on Saturday night were Ricky DiEva in the Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Cars, Matt Miller in the Crate Modifieds and Bill Liedtka in the Street Stocks.

Milford, NJ’s JR Fulper led the Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event to the green flag with Davey Sammons in tow. After some yellow flag fever to start the Modified feature, Fulper would set a torrid pace and appeared to be on his way to his first career Modified win until lap 16 when Fulper entering turn three would tangle with a lapped car ending his night. Fulper’s mishap would then hand the lead to Davey Sammons who would go on to win his second career and second Modified win of 2019 at NES. Following a lap two tangle that sent him pit side with a flat tire Billy Pauch Jr. rallied to finish second, further extending his point lead. Brandon Grosso, Rich Rutski and Ryan Krachun would round out the top five. Sammons would dedicate his win to long time supporter John Chemedlin who recently passed away.

“This one is for John, I thought about that with two laps to go, I had a tear running down my eye”, said Sammons post race. “It’s a shame, JR was running a good race, I thought I would be able to get to the lead on the top early but I couldn’t get off of two so I just fell in line and rode behind him for a little bit. I got a little tight early and I thought he would come back to me but he wasn’t. I thought I would get a shot at him in lapped traffic and it’s unfortunate what happened to him but we had a good car.”

It was a pair of young guns dueling in Crate Modified action between Matt Miller and Anthony Tramontana Jr. Miller would control the distance over Tramontana until Tramontana had a driveline issue under caution. Miller would then hold off a hard charging Joe Toth to pick up his first career Crate Modified victory. Toth would take over the point lead with his runner-up finish. Miller’s best career finish prior to this Saturday was a 12th. Steve Davis, Ryan Simmons and Johnny Bangs completed the top five.

Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Car Rookie Ricky DiEva led wire-to-wire in the 20 lap main event picking up his first career Sprint Car win. Mark Bitner was a man on a mission trying to catch DiEva in the late stages of the event but it would be to no avail. Bitner, Jeff Geiges, Tim Tanner Jr. and Eddie Wagner rounded out the top five.

Bill Liedtka just keeps adding to his all time leading Street Stock win total, picking up the win on Saturday night over a fast Brian Spencer, Jimmy Avery, Joe Reid and Billy Wroble.

Six AMA Flat Track Motorcycles took part in three exhibitions throughout the evening in anticipation of next Sunday’s AMA Garden State Flat Track Classic.

New Egypt Speedway is back in action this Tuesday night with the Jersey Rush VIII featuring the 410 Sprint Cars, Modifieds and Crate’s. Pit gates will swing open at 3:30pm, Grandstands at 5pm, with Hot Laps at 7pm and Sprint Car time trials hitting the Speedway at 7:15pm. Adult admission is $30, Children 6-11 are $10, with Kids 6 & Under are FREE. Pit admission is $35.

New Egypt Speedway will showcase two days of racing action next Saturday and Sunday as well with the Mr. Crate Classic & Scout Night presented by Eastern Auto Parts Warehouse. The Crate Modifieds will be the main attraction in a 30-lap feature event. The Hammer Sportsman, Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders will round out the racing card next Saturday. Pit gates will open at 4pm, Grandstands at 5pm with hot laps hitting the speedway at 6pm and racing at 7pm.
