Replica Ken Brenn Sr coupe as driven by Stan Ploski

One sharp vintage car..

Nice group of cars in the Rotondo Weirich (RW) booth.  (They make precast concrete modular buildings...)  I looked it up!:

Beautiful custom chopper featuring a 9/11 tribute paint scheme in the New Egypt Speedway booth.

Brett Hearn and long time crewman Rob Maxwell with New Egypt Speedway's Fred Vahlsing.

Excellent display from Crower showing how the internals work without the block and heads....  What a great teaching prop for a vo-tech class!

Keith Hoffman (center with black shirt) and Danny Serano (left with gray shirt) talk to folks at the Bridgeport booth.

In addition to Keith and Danny, Dave Adams will be a big part of the promotions and marketing efforts at Bridgeport in 2013.

After running a few races in 2012, Erika Palmai will run the full season this year in the Tri State Race Saver Sprint Series.  Sponsorship Erika's #5 comes from from Pathway Car Care Inc of Trenton NJ, Lawrence Collision of Lawrence Twsp NJ, E&G Tire & Auto of Dayton NJ, PACKRAT, Joe's Signs of Robbinsville NJ, Dephi Coatings, Medford Speed, and 3 Wide Picture Vault Sponsors: Palmco Race Car Repair of Allentown NJ and Hamill Flooring of Piscataway NJ.

Lot's of NJ racing history here...

Frankie's Sedan

It's beautiful, and it's for sale...

If I had the money, I'd buy it... put it in my garage... sit in the seat with both hands on the wheel... and just sit there for days making motor noises...  It is absolutely perfect.

Mike Feltenberger makes a test run at the "Alley Racing" Speedway

Looks like a pile up down track as folks of all ages enjoy the action.

The detail of the cars is really something... (Thanks for the website mention at the finish line)

How many can you recognize?

For the actual competition, rules are in place to keep it even including a scale to make sure everybody is at the right weight.

A few more including some full fendered Alley Racers, just like the full size cars looked in the early 60's.

Lot's of work goes into these, and making them roll perfectly straight down the track is pretty tricky

4 Star Lettering's tag line:  "When in doubt, wrap it." (I think they're talking about racecars, right?)

What's everybody lined up for by the Coastal 181 booth? see 1963 Indy 500 winner Parnelli Jones.  Parnelli was signing his new book from Coastal 181 called, "As a Matter of Fact, I am Parnelli Jones."

The "Dirty Jersey 60 (New Egypt Speedway - June 18th) will have Frank Cozze in the #357 and 2013 NES Track Champion Ryan Godown in the John Chemidlin #747.

Indy cars are cool.

News Flash:  Billy Pauch, Kenny Brightbill, Fred Rahmer, Craig Von Dohren and many others will be running for $2k to win at the mid week shows at Kutztown this year... Could be interesting...

"Hey Ace!"....  (I had trouble getting legendary racing photographer Ace Lane's attention....)

Nevermind Ace... (lol...)
