Grosso Captures First of the Season at New Egypt Speedway

(May 1, 2021):  Brandon Grosso of Belle Mead, NJ won the 40 lap Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event at New Egypt Speedway Saturday night. Grosso took the lead from Brian Papiez then had to out run previous race winner Mike Gular to the checkered of the extra distance affair on Little League Night.    

Kevin Vaclavicek and John McClelland led the field at the start of Saturday night’s 40 lapper as Brian Papiez gave chase.  These three put on a spirited battle for the top spot in the opening laps as Papiez tried to no avail to sneak by Vaclavicek. Finally Papiez found a groove to get by on lap 8 and took command, and once in front he began to open up on the field.  Once in front Papiez appeared to be the fastest car on the track as he ran away from the field until a yellow on lap 14 closed everyone back up.  The restart saw Papiez continue to control things as he powered away from the pack as Brandon Grosso and Mike Gular moved into second and third. As the race passed halfway no one seemed to have anything for Papiez until a restart on lap 26. Grosso used this opportunity to get under Papiez and grab the lead with Gular following suit.  Gular stayed with Grosso, getting under him several times. With 5 laps remaining Grosso began to slowly open up some breathing room, and despite a final caution on lap 38, went on to post his sixth career Modified victory.  Gular, winner last time out, settled for second with opening night winner Dominick Buffalino coming home third.  Wade Hendrickson and Billy Osmun rounded out the top five. With the win Grosso takes over the championship point lead as point leader Billy Pauch Jr. did not make the call for the feature due to an electrical problem in the #96.

The Larry’s Hot Rods and Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars 20 lap feature event was won by Brad Schaale, as he became the fourth different NEWS Sprint winner in four races. Mick D’Agostino took over the point lead with his runner-up finish, followed by Rich Mellor, Brian Spencer and Heidi Hedin.      

The Racersguide.com Crate Modified 20 lap feature was won for the third time by Pat Wall, making him 3 for 4.  Justin Grosso, trying to make it a brother sweep, had to settle for second with his best run so far of 2021 in the Crates. Johnny Bangs raced home third chased by Joe Nappi and Nick Van Wickle.

Gular Conquers New Egypt Speedway in Just Three Weeks

(April 17, 2021):  In just his third start as a NES regular, Mike Gular of Boyertown, PA won his first ever Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event at New Egypt Speedway Saturday night. Gular, who also won his heat, made it a clean sweep of the evening when he passed Brandon Grosso in the latter stages of the 30 lap event and went on to claim the victory.

“We decided to run New Egypt this year because we like new challenges”, stated Gular to track announcer Nick Leach, “Terry (Fasnacht) gives us great equipment and I am happy we were able to break thru so quickly.”

Frank Venezia & Kory Fleming brought the 26 car field to the start with Fleming assuming command. Fleming opened up a comfortable lead in the early going with PJ Oliver and John McClelland battling with Venezia for second. Tenth starter Brandon Grosso was the fastest car in the early going as he wasted no time slicing his way into the top five and quickly began to pick off cars each lap. By lap 6 he had taken over second and quickly reeled in the speedy Fleming, with Fleming leading the duo away from the pack. Meanwhile Gular was getting faster as he took over third from Oliver but found himself more than half a straightaway behind the two leaders. However it only took Gular 5 laps to run them down and make it a three car race for the lead. Grosso, feeling the pressure from Gular, finally made a move past Fleming, and Gular followed him by the next time around. It was now a crowd pleaser as Gular looked for a way by with Grosso holding him off at every turn. Gular finally found the line he was looking for flying around Grosso for the lead.  With just five laps remaining heavy lapped traffic loomed just ahead of Gular, and as he approached it the following lap, two of those cars tangled directly in front him.  Gular took quick evasive action darting out to the fence in turn four and barely missing the incident thus retaining his lead as the yellow lights flashed on for the final time.  This final restart gave Grosso renewed hope, but Gular proved to be too much to handle on this night as he went on to win by 1.9 seconds. Grosso, who has been fast in every event so far this season, settled for a hard earned second. First heat winner PJ Oliver finally put things together to come home third, chased by last week’s winner Billy Pauch Jr. and early leader Fleming, placing all three heat winners in the top five at the finish.
