John Keller's #54X will be the talk of the town on opening day at New Egypt!

The car has been totally wrapped in vinyl and has the appearance of having a chrome base throughout the entire car with orange, black, white and yellow worked in to kind of a smokey flame pattern.  Easy to see the #s, and its also easy to see the sponsor names of J.S. Keller Construction and Valley Brook Construction on the car.  Former Motorcross racer turned Modified racer John tells us that the car was lettered by Thornton Graphix (570-562-2740).  When we asked where the"The Jersey Squirl" was this year (we featured a picture of the back of John's 2006 car that featured a crazed looking squirl), he said this year it looked too much like a badger, so they are going "squirl-less" in 2007.  (Just as well...  Without the squirl along for the ride this year, I look for John to find the smooth and fast way around early in the season at New Egypt Speedway.

John, please go around the mud, ok?  It's just too pretty!

We were talking to both of the "Hackettstown Hendershots" while visiting the mall and I never checked to see if this was Mike's Modified or Bob's Sportsman.  These guys make the long tow down to New Egypt Speedway and it'd be nice to see each capture a feature win this year in their #80 racer... whichever one it is!   (update 3/11/07:  Found out this is Mike's Modified and that Bob's Sportsman will have similar sheet metal to last year car.  Good luck in 2007.)

Archie Myers' #111 was looking sharp.  The car is lettered up to reflect when Glenn Fitzcharles took a turn behind the wheel.

Want to race and don't have the time or the place to field a competitive Champ Kart?   Give Danny a call!

Sprint cars, 1/4 midgets, Champ Karts...  lots to look at.

Micro Sprints...

... are popular all over.  Many find a good ratio between $'s spent + hours invested = a very, fun... and fast time running Micros.

Not sure where this one runs (Island Dragway in nearby Great Meadows?), but it was a looker for sure!

The old shoe box Nova or Chevy II as some call it.  Still one of my favorite hot rods.
