Housworth Highlights New Egypt Speedway Championship Night; Takes Two Track Championships

NEW EGYPT, NJ - In 2019, Jim Housworth lost the Sportsman championship by a scant two markers, the equivalent to just one position on the race track. Housworth who picked up Crate Modified championships in 2010 & 2011 came back with a vengeance in 2020 and earned not one, but two New Egypt Speedway track championships in the Sportsman and Ice Less LLC Crate Modified divisions respectively, becoming the first driver to win two different titles in the same season at NES.

“It’s good to be the first to win two titles in one season, I can’t thank my crew enough, these guys, both cars, two championships, everybody makes it possible. My sponsors make it so if we need something we can get it. It was a lot of hard work and dedication by those guys. It means alot, New Egypt is my home track, this year things just rolled our way,” said Housworth post race.

In the Ice Less LLC Crate Modifieds it was Robbie Holzwarth and Aaron Weaver bringing the field down to the green flag with Holzwarth jumping out to the early lead before fourth place starting Robby Dunn would make his move, taking the top spot on lap three. Trouble would strike on lap 11 when Glenn McIntyre would end up getting stuck on top of the turn one fence. When green replaced yellow Dunn continued to lead the way over 10th place starting Johnny Bangs. The red flag would fly on lap 14 when Holzwarth made hard contact with the frontstretch wall and then rolled over, he would be ok. When racing resumed Dan Fleming was able to wrestle the lead away from Dunn on lap 15 bringing Bangs back with him into the runner-up position just three laps later. The final yellow of the event flew on lap 18 when Aaron Weaver crept to a stop in turn four. Over the final two laps Bangs would take his shot at Fleming but it would be to no avail. Fleming went on to dedicate the win to his mom who is doing better in the hospital after being involved in a car accident on her way to the track last week. Bangs came home as the runner-up, Robby Dunn third with Jeremy Martino fourth and Sammy Martz Jr. fifth. Crossing the line sixth and picking up the 2020 Ice Less LLC Crate Modified title was Jim Housworth.

Brandon Grosso’s Motor Lasts Just Long Enough to Become Sixth Winner in Six Races at New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ - Brandon Grosso of Belle Mead, NJ became the sixth different Vahlco Wheels Modified feature winner in as many races on Ladies night at New Egypt Speedway. Grosso had a comfortable lead when his engine began to lose power in the final laps, allowing runner-up Steve Davis one final shot at him on the final turn, but his motor had one last gasp in it which was just enough to drive back under Davis and beat him to the line by half a car length. The engine then expired heading into turn one requiring a push truck to take him to victory lane.

PJ Oliver and Steve Davis brought the 25-car field to the drop of the green with Oliver powering his way out in front. Cale Ross and Buffalino quickly moved into second and third and took up the chase of the leader during the first half of the race.  After lap 5 the race ran 21 laps before the next caution, and during this period Billy Pauch Jr., Ryan Krachun, Mike Butler and Davey Sammons charged up thru the tough field. At the halfway mark Pauch and Krachun battled for several laps side by side for the fifth position as Buffalino moved into the runnerup position and chased after leader Oliver. With ten laps remaining Pauch suddenly surged forward racing up to third. Buffalino at this point had caught Oliver and on lap 22 he made what would be the winning pass. Pauch grabbed second as the five to go signal was given to the field however Buffalino was more than a half of a straightaway in front.  One lap later the red flag was displayed for Brandon Grosso who had flipped in turn three, erasing the sizeable lead Buffalino was enjoying and setting up a four lap shootout. Buffalino controlled the restart but Pauch stayed with him and made one last bid on the outside in the final two turns, but Buffalino was up to the challenge and posted the popular win.

Simmons Clutch In Second Straight New Egypt Crate Classic Win

Simmons Clutch In Second Straight New Egypt Crate Classic Win

For Immediate Release

New Egypt, NJ - Cream Ridge, NJ’s Ryan Simmons picked up his second straight Mr. Crate Classic victory at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night in the 4th Annual event held for the Ice Less LLC Crate Modifieds. Simmons held off a mid race charge from Jim Housworth and was able to pull away to his fifth career Ice Less LLC Crate Modified win in the extra distance event at the Ocean County D-Shaped oval.

HarryMeeks 26

Aaron Weaver led the field of Ice Less LLC Crate Modifieds to the green flag with Robby Dunn on the outside pole. Dunn would lead the first trip around the speedway and held the lead for the first four laps until he would catch the inside guardrail in turn two with his left front wheel pushing him up the race track allowing third place starter Ryan Simmons to get underneath him down the backstretch with Simmons prevailing with the lead. Simmons would click off consistent laps building his advantage to up to 10 car lengths when the only caution of the event flew on lap 15 when Joe Nappi came to a stop in the second corner. When green replaced yellow Simmons jumped back out to the lead but the man on the move was Jim Housworth who had now settled into the second position. Housworth would stalk Simmons through lapped traffic mounting a challenge for the lead at one point. Once Simmons hit clean air and was able to change his line he would stretch out his lead over Housworth running away and hiding for his second straight win in the Mr. Crate Classic. Housworth held on for second with Ryan Heim, Jeremy Martino and Joe Toth rounding out the top five.

“I knew if I just kept my nose clean for the first few laps that I would have a shot there at the end, thirty laps is a long race for us, I was pretty proud of Robby (Dunn), he was holding his own. Once he clipped the inside wall he gave me an opening. As soon as I saw it I wasn’t going to lift because I got to beat him, he’s one of my best friends. After that lap 15 restart I had to pick a new lane because I knew Housworth was coming and where I was running was starting to kill me, once I moved down a lane I started to pull away those last five or so laps. We did a great job as a division tonight with only one caution in 30 laps, we showed that we deserve to be in the spotlight,” said Simmons post race.
