June 12, 2021): Justin Grosso of Belle Mead, NJ continued his recent dominance at New Egypt Speedway, as he won both the Sportsman and the Racersguide.com Crate Modified features on Saturday evening. Grosso led wire to wire in the 20 lap non-stop feature event for the Crates, then drove from the eighth starting position to the lead in 10 laps and went on to capture the Sportsman 20 lap event, which was not slowed by caution until 3 laps remained. It was Grosso’s first ever Open Sportsman triumph, whereas it was his 4th straight Crate Modified victory at the central Jersey speedway.
Grosso combined skill and luck for his Crate Modified victory, as he drew the pole for the feature event and took full advantage of it for his 4th straight win. Grosso sliced thru lapped traffic masterfully in the non-stop race, as Ryan Simmons was the only car that could keep pace with Grosso’s family owned j24, settling for a well deserved second place finish. Pat Wall, Johnny Bangs and Anthony Tramontana rounded out the top five in a rare sweep of the top five spots by the top five in points!
(June 5, 2021): Rick Laubach of Hellertown, PA took top honors Saturday night in the 30 lap Vahlco Wheels Modified main event on Rat Rod/Hot Rod Night at NES. The two time champ took full advantage of his front row starting spot to lead all 30 laps of the feature, the final 25 being run non-stop. It was the 17th win of his career at NES, his first in almost 5 years.
“A lot of people have asked me why I came back to run here (NES) because the competition is so tough, there are 6 STSS winners that compete here regularly!” stated Laubach in the winner’s circle, “My answer is because I enjoy running here, It’s a great track to pass on and you can be proud when you are standing here at the end of the night.”
Laubach, after a forgettable last three weeks, started on the pole for the 30 lap event and brought the field to the start. After a couple yellows in the opening five laps, including one on the initial start, the race would get going and would not be stopped again. Laubach jumped out in front and quickly stretched his lead to a full straightaway by the halfway mark. Back in the pack, Billy Pauch Jr who won the last event here on May 15, and Mike Gular, also a winner in April, were storming to the front. Gular made a great move to get by Pauch and Mike Butler to move into second only to see Pauch Jr. return the favor with ten to go. The final 8 laps saw Laubach move into and thru heavy lapped traffic bring Pauch Jr. closer, but Laubach masterfully handled the back markers and cruised to his first win since 2016 at New Egypt. Pauch Jr. settled for the runner-up spot, and Gular came home third and by virtue of this take’s over the division point lead. Mike Butler held on for his second 4th place finish this year, and Bryan Kuhl grabbed fifth from Jim Housworth on the final lap to complete the top five.
Tom Princiotta, of Columbus, NJ, broke thru for his first ever victory in the Sportsman 20 lap main event. Since he started running these cars in 2015, Princiotta has been very close on numerous occasions, but had never cracked the win column. That all changed on Saturday night as he used his Brandon Solarski Racing #32 Crate to dominate the second half of the race. After a good battle with Paul Mancini during the first half, he pulled away to a big lead in the second half only to have a late race yellow bring the field back to him. However, on this evening he would not be denied, as he once again pulled away from all competitors to post the very popular victory. Two time winner Anthony Tramontana came home a distant second, followed by Ryan Heim third, Ryan Simmons fourth and Justin Grosso fifth.
Today’s racing event has been canceled due to rain. Please join us next week for our Rat Rod II / Motors & Music Night. REMINDER: Racing begins at 7 pm starting Saturday, June 5th. Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend.

(May 15, 2021): Billy Pauch Jr. won for the second time at New Egypt in 2021 as he took top honors in the 30 lap Vahlco Wheels Modified main event on Jeep Night Saturday. The two time champ raced from 14th starting spot on the grid to take the lead from early race leader Jack Swain at about the halfway mark, and then outran Jimmy Blewett to the checkered by .935 seconds. For Pauch Jr it was his 31st career Modified win at NES. Blewett, who was a heat winner earlier in the night, settled for second. Mike Gular came home third, followed by point leader Brandon Grosso & 2018 champion David Van Horn. John McClelland, Bryan Kuhl, Davey Sammons, PJ Oliver and Swain rounded out the top ten.
Justin Grosso posted his first career Racersguide.com Crate Modified victory in the 20 lap feature. Grosso drove thru the field from 11th starting position, grabbing the lead from race long leader Matt Miller with less than 2 laps to go and went on to collect top honors. Miller settled for second, chased by young George Garies Jr, who posted his best finish of the season. Jon Meyer and Anthony Tramontana completed the top five at the checker.
Kevin Nagy again drove a flawless race with the MASS 305 Sprints to win the A Main for the second straight time at NES. Nagy started 7th and had to catch and pass leader Eddie Wagner during the second half of the event to win for the 4th time in five MASS events in 2021. Wagner held on for second, followed by Rick Stief, Jon Brennfleck and young hot-shoe Zack Bealer.
We apologize for the delay in making a decision regarding tonight’s racing program as we were waiting to see the weather pattern for tonight. Unfortunately, we are forced to CANCEL tonight as the weather is expected to be wet and chilly over the next few hours. Sorry for the delay! We will be back in action next Saturday night, May 15th for Jeep Night! Happy Mother’s Day!
(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.
(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.
(April 10, 2021): Billy Pauch Jr. of Milford, NJ captured his 30th career Vahlco Modified win at New Egypt Speedway Saturday on Country Western Night. Pauch took the lead from Mike Butler on a lap 13 restart and cruised to his first victory of 2021. The win breaks a tie with Kenny Brightbill and places Pauch Jr. in sole possession of third place on the all-time overall Modified win list.
“We got lucky in turn 4 ealy in race when I was able to miss that wreck and picked up about 8 spots!” laughed Pauch in victory lane, “My crew did a heck of a job getting the car turned around after we struggled in our heat race.”
Due to the wet weather conditions we have faced the last few days and the frigid temperatures expected overnight, we do not feel comfortable with hosting a practice with these track conditions for the safety of our drivers and crews, therefore we, unfortunately, are forced to cancel our open practice session scheduled for Tomorrow, March 20th. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next open practice session next Saturday, March 27th. Thank you for your understanding!

NEW EGYPT, NJ - 2020 New Egypt Speedway Vahlco Wheels Modified champion Danny Bouc took the lead from Ryan Krachun on lap 77 and sped off into the Central Jersey night picking up the win in the All Star Cup 100 worth $10,000. It was Bouc’s third win of the season after the Pennsylvania driver won the season opener on July 4th and a Twin 20 on September 5th.

On Friday afternoon Bouc was unsure he would even be able to make it to the track on Saturday night after suffering trailer problems that kept him on the sidelines on Friday night. Bouc was able to borrow an open trailer for Saturday and as the saying goes, the rest is history.
