Blewett Shows his Metal at New Egypt Speedway
New Egypt, NJ (August 23, 2014) – Jimmy Blewett of Howell, NJ showed what he was made of Saturday night as he captured his first win of the season in the 30 lap Modified feature at New Egypt Speedway. Blewett roared to the front and then ran down Neal Williams, grabbing the lead with just five laps remaining to take his second career win.
PJ Oliver took the lead at the start of the 30 lap event and set the early pace over Tim Apgar and David Van Horn. Neal Williams soon got into the act as he raced into second position and began to challenge Oliver. On lap 10 Williams took over the top spot as Blewett bested Van Horn for the second position after a short battle. Williams led into lapped traffic as Blewett quickly closed the gap on the leader. The duo now hooked up in a hard fought battle thru lapped traffic while Ryan Godown and Billy Pauch put on a crowd pleasing duel for the fourth position. Godown finally wrestled the spot away from Pauch and then charged into third and began to run the leaders down. With five laps remaining Godown was with 3 car lengths of the top two, when Blewett made his move into the lead. Godown caught and passed Williams with two laps remaining and then gave a valiant try to catch the leader to no avail. Blewett took the checkered by 5 car lengths over Godown, with Williams a close third. Pauch came home fourth and David Van Horn rounded out the top five.
Mark Bitner of Trenton, PA won his first ever Sprint race at NES in the New Egypt RaceSavers 305 Sprint Car 20 lap feature. Bitner, who had last visited NES victory lane in a Modified 12 years ago, had the Nixon Racing #202 on a rail on this night as he led the event wire to wire defeating former winner Bobby Devault. Phil Meisner Jr. was third followed by Jeff Geiges and David Brown Jr.
The Sportsman 20 lap feature event was won by defending champ and point leader Bob Lineman Jr. Lineman drove around Mike Butler with 7 laps remaining and went on to claim his 3rd win of the season. Johnny Cornell came home second with Butler settling for third. JT Trstensky finished in fourth and Mike Hendershot was fifth.
