Protinick and Wall brought the field to the start of the extra distance event with Protinicj grabbing the early advantage. Wall chased after him but Protinick was hooked up and had every one covered thru the opening laps. Sixth starter Anthony Tramontana quickly moved into third and methodically ran down the front running duo challenging Wall for second by lap 12. As Wall and Tramontana battled they quickly closed in on the leader and the fans suddenly had a three car battle for the lead to watch. Tramontana grabbed second from Wall and almost got by Protinick with the same move, when suddenly Wall came back by both of them for the lead. Lapped traffic began to come into play as Tramontana finally slipped by Protinick and went back after Wall.  STSS Crate winner Johnny Bangs and the winner of the race the last 2 years Ryan Simmons now entered the top five and were battling for fourth half of a straightaway behind the leaders. At the front Wall held off the persistent Tramontana thru lapped traffic to post his 4th win of the season. Tramontana was a close second with Bangs grabbing third in the closing laps.  Protinick finished his great run in fourth followed by Simmons.  5-time winner Justin Grosso, Tom Princiotta, Ryan Heim, Will Dupree and Jon Meyer completed the top ten,

(June 26, 2021):  Billy Pauch Jr. won for the second time this week at New Egypt Speedway as he captured the Graduation Night 30 lap event.  Pauch Jr. took the lead from Cale Ross on lap 17, and then held off 2018 track champ David Van Horn to win his 33rd career Modified feature at NES. 

NES

“My crew works very hard to give me a fast car every night, and this car has been really hooked up the past week,” complimented Pauch in the winner’s circle, “My hats off to the track crew, they have been working very hard on the surface here and it is better each week.”

Pauch worked his way to the front from his 14th starting position during the first 10 laps of the race and then chased Cale Ross for the lead. On lap 17 he powered by a quick Ross and took control of the 30 lap event that he would never relinquish.  David Van Horn continues to get faster every week, coming home second, chased by point leader Mike Gular who again finished third for the 3rd straight Saturday night event.  Ross held on for fourth and Brandon Grosso rounded out the top 5.  

Adam Buchel was crowned the Lyons Construction/MetalFAb Pro Race Shop Rookie champ for 2021, as he won his fifth feature of the season to clinch the title.  Ricky Moran had his best finish of the season coming home second in the 12 lap affair, followed by Tommy Klimkowski third.

Billy Pauch Jr. is “Quickest Gun” at New Egypt’s Garden State Gunfight 4

(June 23, 2021):  Billy Pauch Jr. took top honors Wednesday evening in the fourth annual Garden State Gunfight presented by Creston Hydraulics. Pauch Jr., who waged a crowd pleasing duel for almost 20 laps with 4-time NES champ Ryan Godown, grabbed the lead right at the halfway point of the 60 lap main event and went on to score his 3rd victory at NES in 2021.

 “Ryan (Godown) and I had a great battle there for the fans,” exclaimed Pauch Jr. in victory lane, “We raced very close on all grooves of the track for many laps, and never touched once.  That was a lot of fun!” 

Matt Stangle and DJ Hunt would bring the field to the start of the 60 lap event with Stangle putting his Danny Sommeling Motorsports #51 into the early lead.  Stangle was fast in his new ride and opened up a nice lead as Wade Hendrickson, Danny Bouc and John McClelland battled with Hunt for the second position.  It did not take long for 7th starter Ryan Godown to quickly move into the mix, and soon he won the battle for second and set his sights on the Stangle. As he ran down the leader, Pauch Jr., who started 11th, was quickly on his heels as a caution flag reset the field.  The restart saw Stangle fight hard to hold on to the lead, but Godown finally wore him down and got around him to take the lead, bringing a very fast Pauch Jr. with him. PAuch Jr. quickly caught Godown, but then could only match the speed of Godown, as they both raised their game and put on a crowd pleasing side by side battle each lap and thru several restarts.  David Van Horn, who had fallen back early in the event, had now moved to third after battling with Stangle and was looking to make it a three car race. Godown and Pauch Jr. battled side by side thru turns lap after lap with Godown’s momentum taking back out front each lap. The two swapped grooves as well a couple times, and finally, as the crossed flags were being displayed to the duo, Pauch roared into the lead.  At this point, point leader Mike Gular was in 4th and really working well in the bottom groove, despite a broken sail panel that had been dangling since lap 5.  Gular continued to move up until he was second, and would challenge Pauch on the last two restarts only to watch him pull away each time.  Pauch Jr. would win the event by 1.795 seconds over Gular to score the 32nd Modified win of his career at NES.  Godown came on strong again during the closing laps but settled for third, chased by Van Horn and Stangle.  Sixth thru tenth went to Bouc, Hendrickson, Rick Laubach, Brandon Grosso and first year Modified competitor DJ Hunt.

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. 

Brandon Grosso

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.   

 174241648 1936221536529663 7176109765621217826 n

“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.

Housworth Highlights New Egypt Speedway Championship Night; Takes Two Track Championships

NEW EGYPT, NJ - In 2019, Jim Housworth lost the Sportsman championship by a scant two markers, the equivalent to just one position on the race track. Housworth who picked up Crate Modified championships in 2010 & 2011 came back with a vengeance in 2020 and earned not one, but two New Egypt Speedway track championships in the Sportsman and Ice Less LLC Crate Modified divisions respectively, becoming the first driver to win two different titles in the same season at NES.

“It’s good to be the first to win two titles in one season, I can’t thank my crew enough, these guys, both cars, two championships, everybody makes it possible. My sponsors make it so if we need something we can get it. It was a lot of hard work and dedication by those guys. It means alot, New Egypt is my home track, this year things just rolled our way,” said Housworth post race.

In the Ice Less LLC Crate Modifieds it was Robbie Holzwarth and Aaron Weaver bringing the field down to the green flag with Holzwarth jumping out to the early lead before fourth place starting Robby Dunn would make his move, taking the top spot on lap three. Trouble would strike on lap 11 when Glenn McIntyre would end up getting stuck on top of the turn one fence. When green replaced yellow Dunn continued to lead the way over 10th place starting Johnny Bangs. The red flag would fly on lap 14 when Holzwarth made hard contact with the frontstretch wall and then rolled over, he would be ok. When racing resumed Dan Fleming was able to wrestle the lead away from Dunn on lap 15 bringing Bangs back with him into the runner-up position just three laps later. The final yellow of the event flew on lap 18 when Aaron Weaver crept to a stop in turn four. Over the final two laps Bangs would take his shot at Fleming but it would be to no avail. Fleming went on to dedicate the win to his mom who is doing better in the hospital after being involved in a car accident on her way to the track last week. Bangs came home as the runner-up, Robby Dunn third with Jeremy Martino fourth and Sammy Martz Jr. fifth. Crossing the line sixth and picking up the 2020 Ice Less LLC Crate Modified title was Jim Housworth.

Brandon Grosso’s Motor Lasts Just Long Enough to Become Sixth Winner in Six Races at New Egypt

New Egypt, NJ - Brandon Grosso of Belle Mead, NJ became the sixth different Vahlco Wheels Modified feature winner in as many races on Ladies night at New Egypt Speedway. Grosso had a comfortable lead when his engine began to lose power in the final laps, allowing runner-up Steve Davis one final shot at him on the final turn, but his motor had one last gasp in it which was just enough to drive back under Davis and beat him to the line by half a car length. The engine then expired heading into turn one requiring a push truck to take him to victory lane.

PJ Oliver and Steve Davis brought the 25-car field to the drop of the green with Oliver powering his way out in front. Cale Ross and Buffalino quickly moved into second and third and took up the chase of the leader during the first half of the race.  After lap 5 the race ran 21 laps before the next caution, and during this period Billy Pauch Jr., Ryan Krachun, Mike Butler and Davey Sammons charged up thru the tough field.
