NEW EGYPT, NJ (March 3, 2016) – The start of the 2016 racing season is right around the corner and New Egypt Speedway kicks off 2016 in style this weekend with two unique events designed for competitors and fans.  On Friday, March 4 the annual Winter Jam takes place at the newly renovated Gamblers Ridge Bar and Grill in Cream Ridge, NJ followed by the annual Sprint Swap Meet at the Ocean County oval on Saturday, March 5.
At the Winter Jam, racers will be able to purchase licenses, pit parking spots and register for upcoming special events, while track officials will be on hand to answer questions about the 2016 racing season.  Race Fans are also encouraged to come out and party with the New Egypt crowd as the track’s 2016 racing schedule will be available along with giveaways including apparel, stickers, and a few surprises.
The pricing for pit licenses, parking spots and other competitor items will remain the same as previous years – with a discounted rate for crew members purchasing a license on or prior to the scheduled Saturday, March 26 practice day.
An exclusive ticket package highlights the Winter Jam. The offer includes: two general admission tickets, two hot dogs and two sodas for a price of $45 – a nearly $15 savings. This package, valid for any 2016 regularly priced Saturday Night event, will be available for purchase along with food and drink.
