Racers Working with Racers...  Support those business that support our sport!

Remembering Mike Rogie and Barbara Towels

...Lot's of modifieds...


Possibly the most exciting driver in the Northeast these days, Stew Freisen.

Jeff Strunk was piloting the Blewett #76

Bob Drayton's been running a limited schedule this year.  Always great to see Mr. Bob and the "Doo Crew."

"Racer Friendly", give Mr. Bob's a call for all your Septic Service/Portable Toilet Rental needs.

Neal Williams has had some strong runs in his rookie Modified season driving the Vahlsing #323

Twin Jets...

The "Flight Crew"....

The Pilot.

Triplets.  Mike McAleer, Duane Howard and Kenny Brightbill each had a red Down's Ford/C&S Equipment Company #6!

Kenny get's ready for qualifying action.

Charlie Gunther works a tire for his son Sean's #307 Racer...

And here's Charlie Gunther in the mid 70s at Flemington with his Corvair bodied racer.

T-Mac's #4

Chris Grbac has the #47 running well

Here's David Van Horn, ...and's Carl Van Horn! (Late 70's - Paul Irving photo)  Both cars hand lettered by Dennis Smith!

Tim McCreedie only runs NES once or twice a year, but he always finishes up front...

Wade Hendrickson in the Leach Racing Associates #99

"Pauch X 2"

Bobby Drayton wearing his "TCB" Racing Goggles

Asphalt racer turned dirt tracker, Tommy Farrell has the Reid Sod Farm #54 running near the front

Willie Osmun knows how to pace himself in the extra distance events

Jimmy is quietly having a great year in 2012 driving the Lincoln Auto Body #5 with a win and a ton of top 5's at a bunch of different tracks.

Billy Pauch heads out for his heat race in the K&A Excavating/Ling Trucking #1

Dave Hunt was back in the hunt.

Let's see... So far this year I've seen him win at Penn Can, Lincoln, New Egypt... and I've only seen him race 4 times!

Danny always has a knack for winning the big ones....  Here's Danny on the gas at Flemington in the late 80's.

Iron Maiden, right? - Mike Iles in the #711

Despite rain all around the area, 49 modifieds and 27 Sportsman ignored the weatherman and came to race.

Strong running Sportsman racer Kevin

Sportsman racer Chad Barney heads out in the Ling Trucking/Barney's Service Center #84.  Speaking of "Barney's Service Center:

Here's the Dick Barney owned #14 at Wall from the late 60's/early 70's with Richie Massing behind the wheel.

...and 100 laps later, it was Danny Johnson in victory lane... the looks of the right rear tire, good thing for Danny that it wasn't a 105 lapper!

Lot's of smiles in victory lane

....a Danny Johnson fan for sure.

Danny gives us the thumbs up as he heads out of victory lane after winning the 2012 "Friends of Mike" event.
