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.

“The car was great all night until three laps to go, when I felt it start to lose power,” a relieved Grosso related in victory lane, “Fortunately it had just enough to get me back by him (Davis).”
