New Egypt Speedway By The Numbers
By: Pete MacDonald
41 Drivers have attempted to qualify for a 358 Modified Feature at NES so far in 2015, the most diverse out of the seven divisions at the speedway.
Seven different drivers have won the eight Sportsman races through June 1st, the only repeat winner is Clay Butler.
The NERS 305 Sprint Cars have four different winners in as many races through June 1st.
The Crate Modifieds also have five winners through six events with Brian Papiez being the only repeat winner.
172 drivers have attempted to qualify for an event at NES in 2015 across seven divisions.
John McClelland is having a career year in the 358 Modifieds, he currently sits seventh in points.
The most surprising driver by far in 2015 is Billy Osmun III. After only running slingshots prior he has hopped in to a Crate Modified and has already his first career podium with a third on May 23rd.
May Modified Madness champion Billy Pauch is slowly creeping in on Ryan Godown’s point lead which is down to 28 points heading into June.
David VanHorn just needs a little bit of luck and you’ll see him in Victory Lane soon.
As of June 1st the Street Stocks have run 11 features to date.
76 drivers have perfect attendance so far in 2015 at NES in their respective divisions.
Since bringing out his own number six, John Stangle has shown alot of improvement the last few races.
Brandon Grosso has also showed big strides running both his Crate Modified and Sportsman week in and week out, he currently sits sixth in Sportsman points.
16 year old phenom Ryan Krachun fresh off of his first career 358 Modified feature win in only his second start on May 9th is only nine points out of the Top-20 despite missing four shows.
Jimmy Horton has shown flashes of consistency this year but just can’t put the finishes together, he seems to be getting better each week in the Cicconi 43.
The top four in NERS 305 Sprint Car points are only separated by ten points, the same goes for the Crate Modifieds.
The Crate Modifieds have four races between now and June 13th.
