NEW EGYPT, NJ – They say it’s a Fan’s Favorite but a Drivers Nightmare. Twin 20 lap Modified Features. Two races in one night for the Vahlco Wheels Modifieds, and it is this Saturday night, April 27th at New Egypt Speedway.
Billy Pauch Jr. leads the Modified points chase after three races followed closely by Plumstedville, PA’s Danny Bouc, Milford, NJ’s Mike Butler, and young gun’s Ryan Krachun and Brandon Grosso.

The Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars will be in action for their third event of the 2019 season. Can Rich Mellor or Jermain Godshall keep up their winning ways or will Heidi Hedin or the ageless Stan Ploski pick up their first wins of the 2019 campaign?
