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.

“I’m so happy, when I was going to work this morning something told me that we would be here tonight. I can’t believe it. We were able to put everything together,” said Fulper post race.

Kory Fleming led the Vahlco Wheels Modified feature to the green flag and would lead the first five laps of the event before giving way to JR Fulper. 

With Fulper out in front the man on the move in the early stages was Dakota Kessler racing up to second from his seventh place starting spot by lap eight. 

The first yellow of the event flew on lap 11 when Eric Engstrom broke and veered into traffic, clipping Kessler severely damaging the right rear corner of his No. 449 and ending his promising night.

The first 20-lap main event for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds saw Chris Grbac lead the field to the green flag. Grbac led the field down the backstretch when the battle for the lead picked up in a hurry. Wade Hendrickson shot to the outside of Grbac while Davey Sammons shot to the inside as the lead trio hit turn three. Grbac pushed up the race track ever so slightly washing him and Hendrickson up the race track allowing Sammons to scoot through on the bottom and take the lead to complete lap one bringing Opening Night winner Danny Bouc with him in tow.

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.

“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).”

When green replaced yellow Cozze shot to the outside of Fleming in turn one and emerged the leader on the backstretch. Debris was the cause of caution number three on lap seven.

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. Pauch Jr. finished a close second, early leader Oliver came home third, followed by Cale Ross and Mike Butler.

“I got to hand it to all my family, Pat (Michael) and my entire crew. Everyone worked so hard. My daughter and her boyfriend had to go up to Bickell because the two-by-fours were bent up like a foot to get a new frame. These guys built this car in a week,” said Hendrickson following the event.

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.

Howard Holds Off Pauch Jr. For $6,000 New Egypt All Star Cup Victory

“I’ve been around this game a long time and to beat Billy here at his home track is something special. We came here a little under-motored but we freed the car up and got some momentum up in the feature. I got to thank Norm with the 357, he gives us great equipment to come and race with. It’s really fun to come here and race and beat the weather tonight. Thanks to the fans for sticking this out tonight, what a great-prepared racetrack, you can run the bottom and the top”, said Howard post race.

Ryan Simmons led the field to the green flag but it would be Duane Howard leading lap one. Howard would lead the first 11 laps with third place starter Brandon Grosso in tow. The first caution of the event would fly on lap twelve when Stan Frankenfield came to a stop on the backstretch. Grosso would jump out to the lead on the restart and would pull away from the field at will. It would all come undone for Grosso as the yellow fell for the halfway break, it appears the motor broke and he headed to the pit area handing the lead back to Howard. On the ensuing restart from the halfway break Cale Ross would spin in turn two to bring out the caution. 12th place starter David VanHorn would enter the picture as he reached the third position on lap 33. Following the restart Howard would again jump out to the lead with fifth-place starter Billy Pauch Jr. on his back bumper on lap 34. Pauch Jr. would work the bottom to perfection while Howard rim-rode on the top of the speedway. On lap 35 the caution would fly again for Cale Ross who spun again in turns one and two. As leaders choice, Howard chose the outside for the restart and again jumped out to the lead with Pauch Jr. inching ever so closely lap after lap on the back of Norm Hansell’s No. 357. Pauch would appear to be faster but just couldn’t manage to pull even with Howard to complete the pass. Pauch Jr. would try the top of the Speedway on lap 50 in turns three and four but would lose a bit of ground as Howard would pull out to a four car length lead. Pauch Jr. would make one last effort on Howard but it was to no avail as Howard would pick up his second All Star Cup victory. Pauch Jr. would come home second with Wade Hendrickson, David VanHorn and Frank Cozze completing the top five.

Brian Spencer would hold off a hard charging Joey Biasi to win his fourth straight Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car event. 2019 track champion Rich Mellor, Heidi Hedin and Larry Drake would complete the top five.

Pennsylvania invader Branden Edgar picked up his first career New Egypt Speedway Sportsman win in just his second start. Art Liedl would come on late in the going to finish second with Jim Housworth Joseph Brown and Bill Liedtka completed the top five.

Joe Toth would win the rain shortened Crate Modified event. Toth who took the lead from Johnny Bangs on lap 10 said he would rather be lucky than good as he told Nick Leach post race had something break in the driveline and had to be pushed to Victory Lane. Ryan Godown Jr., Bangs, Jeremy Martino and Ryan Simmons rounded out the top five.

The final event of the 2019 schedule will be held on Saturday December 7th with our 22nd Annual Fall Swap Meet and Flea Market. Gates open to sell at 7:30am, it is free to browse and $15 to sell. Anything automotive is welcome to be sold.

Janine Seeley September 21 2019 9

Brad Schaale led the early going in the 20-Lap Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature with Larry Drake in tow. Schaale would continue to lead past the halfway point where the caution would fly for a spinning Drake. Brian Spencer who was in search of his third straight win in the division would line up third and steal the lead from Schaale on the restart.

Sammons Scores Third While Pauch Jr. Wraps Up 2019 Title At New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ – Davey Sammons and Dakota Kessler led the 30-Lap Vahlco Wheels Modified feature to the green.

Sammons would jump out the early lead and led the first six laps when Johnny Guarino, Cale Ross and Wade Hendrickson tangled in turn three. Sammons would jump back out to the lead on the ensuing restart with Kessler in tow. The second caution of the event would fly on lap ten when Kevin Vaclavicek, Dominick Buffalino and Blaine Bracelin got together in turn four. Sammons would again take command of the field on the restart. Brandon Grosso would take over the runner-up spot from Kessler after starting 10th on lap 13. The only slight hiccup that Sammons would have would be on lap 15 when his right side sail panel came loose and folded over which would not phase him one bit as he continued to set a torrid pace. Billy Pauch Jr. who started 12th would now be in the third position as him and Grosso battled for second while they chased after Sammons. 2018 track champion David VanHorn had now raced up from his 13th starting spot while him and Mike Butler put on a crowd-pleasing duel running side by side for the fourth position lap after lap toward the end of the event. They would all be no match for Sammons and he would lead wire-to-wire scoring his third Vahlco Wheels Modified main event of 2019 at New Egypt Speedway. Brandon Grosso would come home second with Billy Pauch Jr. third, David VanHorn fourth, and Mike Butler completing the top five.

“Two weeks ago we changed something on the car and had a motor issue, we got everything back in time for last week and found out we had a bent valve. So, we found something and it took us two weeks to run it. I drove as hard as I could. The track was really fun, I’ve won races where I had to run the bottom and it’s nice to win one where you have to get up on the wheel. We fought for this and we’re just happy to be here”, said Sammons post race.

After clinching the 2019 Vahlco Wheels Modified title the week prior, Billy Pauch Jr. was officially crowned champion this week, for Pauch Jr. it is his second championship in three years and four straight seasons where he hasn’t finished worse than second in points.

“It was a tough and challenging year, we really got going there. We really wanted to win tonight but hats off to Davey (Sammons), Our guys are awesome, this means a lot, I grew up here as a kid, we’ve had a good couple of years here and we have a lot of fun”, Pauch Jr. said following the race.

Brian Spencer picked up his second straight Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature over Rich Mellor, Larry Drake, Duane Nixon and Heidi Hedin. With his second place finish Rich Mellor has clinched the 2019 Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car championship.

Robbie Holzwarth scored his second Crate Modified win of 2019 and the second of his career over Ryan Heim, Sammy Martz Jr., Matt Miller and Johnny Bangs. The point battle is closer than ever with Joe Toth leading Johnny Bangs by just two points and Ryan Simmons 10 out of the lead in third heading into next week's final points race. The Crate Modified results are currently unofficial.

Rob Longo won the 15-lap feature for the Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinders over point leader Mike Fox, Joe Garey Sr., Dom Antonelli and Scott Dunn.

(Aug. 24, 2019):  Danny Bouc of Plumsteadville, PA broke his win drought Saturday night by taking his first Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season at New Egypt Speedway. Bouc took command on a lap 4 restart and never looked back as he posted his 11th career win at NES.       

 

“It’s been a tough season and it is good to finally breakthrough,” exclaimed Bouc in victory lane, “I have a great crew and they changed a lot of things on this car and it was great tonight!” 

 

Pat Wall took command at the start of the 30 lap affair over PJ Oliver, Kevin Vaclavicek and Bouc.  Wall was strong in the opening laps until the yellow came out on lap 4 for Jim Martin who got into the turn four fence.  The restart was the turning point of the event as Bouc used the cushion to charge around the outside into second in turns 1-2, then flew by leader Wall in thurn 3 & 4 to be recorded the leader of lap 5. Bouc immediately opened up a half straightaway lead and as the race now stayed green he continued to set a fast pace as PJ Oliver gave chase. Just after halfway Bouc hit lapped traffic but he didn’t let this slow him down as he masterfully sliced his way thru it maintaining his advantage. With 6 laps to go the caution appeared for only the second time as Vaclavicek slammed the first turn fence and came to a stop. Bouc didn’t let this phase him as he powered away on the restart, and all eyes turned to point leader Billy Pauch Jr. who had only advanced to 7th before the caution. The 2017 champion grabbed fifth on the restart and then split the next two cars in close quarters in turn three to claim third. A lap later he was second and began to close in on Bouc who was more than half-straightaway in front. At the checkered Pauch got within 6 car lengths and settled for hard earned second, clinching his second NES Modified title a week early.  Mike Butler turned in another solid performance for third, Oliver held on for fourth and Brandon Grosso fought back late to complete the top five. 

 

Will Dupree of Somerset, NJ held off challenges from 5 different drivers to win his third event of 2019 in the John Romano Memorial 30 for the Hammer Sportsman. Three-time champ Bob Lineman Jr. led the early going and appeared poised to make the race a laugher as he ran away and hid, until his car broke at about the halfway point coasting to a stop. He was pushed into the pits ending his night.  Dupree inherited the lead and held off challenges from every top runner, sometimes 2 and three at once. But he was up to every challenge and went on to win a race very close to his heart, that honored his longtime friend and competitor John Romano Jr. Steve Davis took the point lead back by finishing second, John Criscione ran a smooth race coming home third, followed by Art Liedl and Ryan Heim. 

 

The Crate Modifieds 20 lap feature was won by Johnny Bangs for the second time this season. Bangs took the led before halfway from early race leader Andy Walko and never looked back. Dan Fleming bounced back from the big wreck two weeks ago to finish second as Ryan Heim posted his second top five of the night in third. The other two drivers involved in that big crash two weeks ago, Jeremy Martino and Robby Dunn, also bounced back in a big way to round out the top five.  

 

Billy Liedtka scored his sixth win and 32nd of his career in the 15 lap Street Stock victory. Liedtka held off a fast Brian Spencer for the popular victory. Todd Dige was third across the line coming back from an early race incident.     

 

Next Saturday, Sept. 14th will be Flemington Car & Truck Country First Responders/Modified Championship Night. All first responders w/ID will receive FREE General admission & there will be a parade of Emergency response vehicles at Intermission.  Pit Gates open at 3pm, Grandstand Main gates will open at 4pm, Hot laps on track at 5pm, and Racing begins at 6pm.

Billy Pauch Jr. is “the Man” on Ladies Night at New Egypt

(Aug. 24, 2019):  Billy Pauch Jr. of , Frenchtown, NJ won his fourth Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season on Central Paint Ladies Night Saturday at New Egypt Speedway. The 2017 Modified champion & current point leader powered around race leader Cale Ross on lap 16 and went on to his first win at NES since June 26th.

“We finally got one!” quipped a visibly relieved Pauch Jr. in victory lane, “We had a very good car tonight. These past two weeks are probably the toughest I have ever had racing and I was really down on myself, but we pushed thru and I am really proud of this whole team. This was a much needed win” 

Cale Ross, who ran away and hid in his heat race victory, looked to repeat that performance at the start of the 30 lap feature event. Ross with Blaine Bracelin in tow pulled away from the rest of the field when the yellow was quickly displayed with two laps in the books when Kevin Vaclavicek spun in turn 3 and Tuesday night’s winner David Van Horn slammed into him.  Despite the heavy contact, both cars were able to rejoin at the back of the pack for the restart which saw Pauch Jr. already up to 6th from his 10th starting slot. Ross again dominated the restart as Bracelin gave chase and Pauch Jr. battled with hard charger Danny Bouc as the duo sliced thru the pack. Pauch Jr. won this battle and quickly caught and passed Bracelin for second on lap 7 and then set his sights on Ross, who was 10 car lengths out in front. Pauch began to pound the outside of the race track as he tracked down and was the bumper of the leader by lap 12. Pauch appeared ready to fly by the leader, however Ross had found grip on the very bottom groove of the track and would power back past the point leader on every turn. Ross thwarted Pauch’s attempts to pass at every turn for 4 consecutive laps, until lap 16 when Pauch drove the car in deep into turn 3 and powered around the leader in turn 4. Ross moved up to the outside and kept up the torrid pace just five lengths back over the remaining distance. Some brief hope came in the form of lapped traffic in the final 5 laps, but Pauch Jr. handled it like the champion he is and went on to his 25th career Modified win at New Egypt Speedway. Modified rookie Ross continued to impress with yet another strong run for second. Bracelin posted his best finish ever at NES in third. David VanHorn rallied back from that lap 2 tangle to finish 4th and Davey Sammons rounded out the top five.   

Ryan Heim of Parkertown, NJ won his first career feature in the Hammer Sportsman 20 lap event. Heim took command on lap 4 and led the remaining distance holding off a late race charge by Jim Housworth and Steve Davis, who finished second and third respectively.  JT Trstensky and Art Liedl rounded out the top five.

The Crate Modifieds also saw a first time winner in victory lane, for the seventh time this season, as Kevin Borden Jr. outpaced rookie Nick Van Wickle over the 20 lap distance. Veteran racer Steve Hicks came home third, followed by point leader Ryan Simmons fourth and Howie Finch in fifth.      

Billy Liedtka scored his fifth win and 31st of his career in the 15 lap Street Stock victory. Liedtka held off Mick Search & Brian Spencer for the popular victory.

The Central Paint Ladies night Powder Puff race winners were Daralynne McCaughey (Sportsman) & Ashley Wroble (Street Stocks).   

Next week Sat. night August 31st, it is New Egypt Speedway’s annual Labor Day weekend double dip, with Twin 20 lap features for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds. Also on the card will be the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harleys NEWS Sprint Cars, the Hammer Sportsman and the Mike’s Performance Center 4-cylinders.  Gates will open at 5pm, with warm-ups at 6pm and the first race starting at 7pm.

As the 30-lap feature began for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds, Billy Osmun grabbed the lead with Cale Ross, Pat Wall, Rich Rutski and Blaine Bracelin next in line. By the third circuit and just before the first yellow flag waved for a multi-car tangle, Wall passed Ross for second with eighth place starting Mike Butler advancing into fifth. On the ensuing restart, Osmun maintained his edge with Butler motoring to the runner-up spot. Following another caution period on the fourth tour, Butler bolted to the front as action resumed with Wall in second and Osmun in third. Just as action was beginning to heat up on the fifth lap, Dakota Kessler’s ride came to a stop near the pit entrance and the yellow lights illuminated for the final time. When green flag racing returned, Butler fended off Wall to keep the lead with Osmun running in third. At the halfway point of the contest, Butler was increasing his margin over Wall and Osmun with Ryan Krachun in fourth and Danny Bouc in fifth. On lap sixteen, Bouc slipped by Krachun to move into fourth. With ten circuits left, the top two of Butler and Wall had pulled away from their rivals with Butler having a comfortable advantage. Over the final moments of the contest, Butler went unchallenged as he scored his second career Vahlco Wheels Modified feature win. Wall’s strong run netted him second place. With Osmun finishing third, Bouc came home in fourth after starting eleventh. Fifth place was claimed by Krachun. The winners in the Vahlco Wheels Modified heat races were Blaine Bracelin and Cale Ross.

Grosso Gets Job Done At New Egypt; Simmons Mr. Crate Modified 2019

New Egypt, NJ – Belle Mead, NJ’s Brandon Grosso picked up his first New Egypt Speedway victory of 2019 on Saturday night during Jeep Night 2. Ryan Simmons was crowned Mr. Crate Modified for 2019 by winning the Mr. Crate Classic while Rich Mellor picked up his sixth Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Car feature with Dominick Antonelli scoring his first career Mike’s Performance Center 4-Cylinder feature.

Doug Miller 8 3 2019 78

Blaine Bracelin jumped out to the early lead and would lead the first five laps of the Modified feature with Danny Bouc in tow after getting to the second position on lap two with Brandon Grosso following him up through the field. Grosso would wrestle the lead away from Bracelin on a lap five restart with Bouc now in second followed closely by Billy Pauch Jr. and last week’s winner David Van Horn. Pauch Jr. would move in to the runner-up spot on lap six and began to chase down Grosso. Pauch Jr. would officially lead lap nine by a bumper over Grosso with an outside pass but a yellow would fall negating the pass before the field was past the stripe handing the lead back to Grosso. On the ensuing restart Grosso would take the outside lane and pulled away to a five-car length lead over Pauch Jr. The field would encounter lapped traffic at the halfway mark, as Brandon Grosso’s lead would fluctuate as they diced through the back of the field. Finally with just three laps to go Pauch Jr. would shrink the lead to just a couple car lengths closing even more with two to go, but it would be to no avail as Brandon Grosso would take the win by just two car lengths over Pauch Jr. David VanHorn would come home third with Danny Bouc and Davey Sammons rounding out the top five.
