New Egypt, NJ – New Egypt Speedway has been forced to postpone its opening weekend scheduled for Friday and Saturday April 6th and 7th due to the facility grounds still being wet from the winter.
“It’s the same scenario as last weekend, we need three our four dry days in a row to get it where we can work on the race track so that it is safe for our competitors. We don’t want to see anyone tear anything up this early in the season”, said New Egypt Speedways Joey Liquori. “So far the forecast looks good for next week so we will try it again.”
The free-to-the-public Open Practice session has been rescheduled for Thursday night April 12th. Pit gates will open at 3PM for inspection and practice will run from 5-9PM. Any racecar that is New Jersey legal is welcome to take part in the practice session. Pit Admission will be $25.
Then on Saturday night April 14th New Egypt Speedway will fire-off its 21st Season as a dirt track when Oliver Communications Group presents the return of the Modifieds who will compete in a 40-Lap, $2,750 to win, Double Points affair along with the Mid Atlantic 305 Sprint Cars, Hammer Sportsman, Street Stocks, 4-Cylinders and Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman.
