The Swap meet on November 20th is canceled
The monster truck spooky smash Saturday, November 6th & November 7th due to the impending weather forecast for this weekend. We look forward to seeing you all next weekend!
(Sept. 28, 2021): This Saturday evening the 9th annual All-Star Cup Shootout for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds will take place at New Egypt Speedway, and a star studded field will be on hand to compete for the $10,000 top prize. The 100 lap event will pay $1000 for tenth and $500 to start, plus additional lap money. Confirmed entries from across the Tri-State area have already been received, and continue to come in.
Leading the list is newly crowned New Egypt champion Mike Gular, as he will be looking to capture his first All-Star Cup title. Former track champions David Van Horn & Rick Laubach, and 2017 All-Star Cup winner Brandon Grosso plan to defend their home turf. The trio accounted for 5 feature wins this season between them at the central Jersey track. The task will not be easy as many potent invaders will be in attendance, several of which have had previous NES success.
Due to the inclement weather forecast for today, speedway management has decided to cancel tonight's 2nd Annual Ron John Koczon Classic. We will be back in action next Saturday, September 4th for Back To School Night!
(June 5, 2021): Rick Laubach of Hellertown, PA took top honors Saturday night in the 30 lap Vahlco Wheels Modified main event on Rat Rod/Hot Rod Night at NES. The two time champ took full advantage of his front row starting spot to lead all 30 laps of the feature, the final 25 being run non-stop. It was the 17th win of his career at NES, his first in almost 5 years.
“A lot of people have asked me why I came back to run here (NES) because the competition is so tough, there are 6 STSS winners that compete here regularly!” stated Laubach in the winner’s circle, “My answer is because I enjoy running here, It’s a great track to pass on and you can be proud when you are standing here at the end of the night.”
Laubach, after a forgettable last three weeks, started on the pole for the 30 lap event and brought the field to the start. After a couple yellows in the opening five laps, including one on the initial start, the race would get going and would not be stopped again. Laubach jumped out in front and quickly stretched his lead to a full straightaway by the halfway mark. Back in the pack, Billy Pauch Jr who won the last event here on May 15, and Mike Gular, also a winner in April, were storming to the front. Gular made a great move to get by Pauch and Mike Butler to move into second only to see Pauch Jr. return the favor with ten to go. The final 8 laps saw Laubach move into and thru heavy lapped traffic bring Pauch Jr. closer, but Laubach masterfully handled the back markers and cruised to his first win since 2016 at New Egypt. Pauch Jr. settled for the runner-up spot, and Gular came home third and by virtue of this take’s over the division point lead. Mike Butler held on for his second 4th place finish this year, and Bryan Kuhl grabbed fifth from Jim Housworth on the final lap to complete the top five.
Tom Princiotta, of Columbus, NJ, broke thru for his first ever victory in the Sportsman 20 lap main event. Since he started running these cars in 2015, Princiotta has been very close on numerous occasions, but had never cracked the win column. That all changed on Saturday night as he used his Brandon Solarski Racing #32 Crate to dominate the second half of the race. After a good battle with Paul Mancini during the first half, he pulled away to a big lead in the second half only to have a late race yellow bring the field back to him. However, on this evening he would not be denied, as he once again pulled away from all competitors to post the very popular victory. Two time winner Anthony Tramontana came home a distant second, followed by Ryan Heim third, Ryan Simmons fourth and Justin Grosso fifth.

NEW EGYPT, NJ - 2020 New Egypt Speedway Vahlco Wheels Modified champion Danny Bouc took the lead from Ryan Krachun on lap 77 and sped off into the Central Jersey night picking up the win in the All Star Cup 100 worth $10,000. It was Bouc’s third win of the season after the Pennsylvania driver won the season opener on July 4th and a Twin 20 on September 5th.

On Friday afternoon Bouc was unsure he would even be able to make it to the track on Saturday night after suffering trailer problems that kept him on the sidelines on Friday night. Bouc was able to borrow an open trailer for Saturday and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
Brandon Grosso redrew the pole position for the 100 lap Modified main event, however the first yellow flag of the event would fly less than a lap in when Dakota Kessler was facing the wrong way in between turns one and two.
