Opening Night New Egypt
April, 26th 2008
Car owner John Larsen found victory lane in the Krate Class with driver Darrell Delnero in the #7L
Rookie to watch Chris Allen (Micro Sprint standout) appeared to have pulled off the win in his first ever race in a full size car only to come up 6lbs light at the scales...
Bobby Sandt has quietly qualified for both Sportsman Mains so far in 2008... Definitely a rookie to watch.
And the winner is: Rob Stump and crew in victory lane after winning the Rookie Feature
After winning his heat race, sportsman racer Tom Carberry brought the #28 out for fans to get a close up!
Here's a good view of the black shoe-ed #28 sponsored by IZZI Trucking & Rigging of Edison, Integrity Auto Body of Ringoes and Shear _____ from Scotch Plains (haircutting place that I can't remember the name - help!)
Former Modified competitor Joe Zuczek went back to his roots with his new car # for this season (#27z).
...not sure if the fellow in the center was working on the engine, or just trying to keep his hands warm!
Consistent runner Donnie Kline comes in after his heat in the Cray Electric sponsored #1.
Keep your eye on this kid... Chuck Palmucci. He got upside down last night, but when he keeps it right side up, he runs the wheels off it! One of the Vault's Favorite Young Drivers!
Anybody got a ladder?
With the addition of Todd Cray to the Super Stock class, this could be the toughest division of all!
Team Marin had some work to do...
I saw a few folks in the stands that would've liked to had this blanket!
URC Sprints were on the card. Here's Modified driver Dom Buffalino getting ready to head out for his first ever URC heat race while the crew makes last minute adjustments.
Mark BItner's #15 prior to heat race action
Modified driver's Cozze, Drayton, Koczon, Hoffman, Kell, Keller, Cox and others near the pit shack
Tim Hogue won his heat in a strong performance in John Pinter's #92. TIm's dad is Fran Hogue who drover the modified #239 before driving sprinters himself. Some of the fans of The Vault will also remember John "Pinter" and his blue #92 from East Windsor and other tracks back in the 70's & 80's.
Brian Godown's modified sponsored by "Champion Tire"
...from out of the darkness...
Birthday boy Billy Bauer in victory lane after a great battle with Mick Search and then Todd Cray!
JJ Grasso proved once again that he is the man to beat in URC action at New Egypt surviving a last lap shootout with Davey Sammons and a very determined Becca Anderson - Great feature guys (and girl!)
The Romano's! (We think we'll be seeing John in victory lane again in the #84R Sportsman (above) and in the #175 SS Sprinter.) John brought the #84R (# fixed smart azz'es!) from way back in the pack for the win.
Billy Pauch battled Frank Cozze lap after lap and pulled off the win in the modified feature. He then hopped in the #56 Sprinter only to get upside down on the first lap, and then climbed back into the #1Modified for a visit to victory lane.
... and we're glad he did.
