GODOWN RECORDS WINS IN THE EXCITING 358 MODIFIED FEATURE AND NORTHEAST WINGLESS SPRINT CAR MAIN EVENT AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY

New Egypt, NJ (July 16, 2017) – On Hammer Company Night at New Egypt Speedway, Ryan Godown recorded two feature wins by taking the checkered flag in the exciting 358 Modified race and the Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event. Cale Ross claimed the victory in the Hammer Sportsman.

When the 30-lap 358 Modified feature got underway, Kevin Vaclavicek was the leader with Rich Rutski, Rocco Infante, Steve Davis and John Pakenham next in line. With five tours in the books and the caution flag waving for a slowing PJ Oliver, the leader board showed Vaclavicek still on top with Rutski in second and Ryan Krachun in third. When racing resumed, Vaclavicek held on to first place with Krachun motoring into second. Krachun quickly moved closer to Vaclavicek and gained the lead on the ninth circuit. Behind the top two of Krachun and Vaclavicek, twelfth place starting Ryan Godown was continuing his march towards the top and reached third on lap eleven. On the twelfth circuit, the yellow lights illuminated for a slowing DJ Ruppert. Krachun maintained his advantage on the restart with Vaclavicek and Godown in his tracks. Godown surged to the runner-up position with fourteen tours completed. At the halfway point, the cars of Bryan Kuhl and Lou Cicconi locked bumpers and the caution flag was displayed. On the ensuing restart, Krachun and Godown engaged in a spirited side-by-side duel for the lead with Godown ascending to the front of the field. After two more caution periods and nine laps remaining in the contest, Godown was still on top with Krachun in second, nineteenth starting Danny Bouc in third and David Van Horn riding in fourth. On lap twenty-five, Krachun was in close proximity of Godown when the yellow lights illuminated for the final time for John McClelland. As the green flag waved, Godown maintained his advantage with Krachun feeling the pressure from Bouc for second place. With three laps to go, Bouc blasted by Krachun to take over the runner-up spot. Quickly, Bouc began to chase down Godown and was in striking distance as the white flag waved. On the final circuit, Bouc blasted down the backstretch and dove to the inside of Godown in the third corner to take the lead. Bouc’s momentum took him to the high side in turn 4 and Godown shifted to the lower lane of the final corner. Exiting the fourth turn, Godown drifted back to the upper groove as he regained the lead. As the top two sped to the finish line, Godown held off Bouc to become the sixth different winner over the past six 358 Modified features at New Egypt Speedway. After finishing second last week, Krachun came home in third. Van Horn was fourth and Vaclavicek’s strong run earned him fifth place. Rich Rutski, Ryan Krachun and DJ Ruppert were victors in the 358 Modified heat races.

After winning the heat race, Ryan Godown took the lead on the second circuit and cruised to his six checkered flag in the 20-lap main event for the Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars. Ninth place starting Billy Pauch, Jr. was the runner-up. Third place was claimed by Lee Nardelli. Fourth place went to Rich Mellor and Larry McVay came home in fifth.

In the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature, Cale Ross, the 2016 New Egypt Speedway Rookie Champion, scored his first career win. Jimmy Amato led the opening three tours before Ross took command for the rest of the event. Will Dupree finished in second. Billy Osmun, III, the current point leader, completed the race in third after starting the race in twelfth. Pat Wall was fourth and fifth was captured by JR Fulper. Qualifying races for the Hammer Sportsman went to Cale Ross and Will Dupree.

On Saturday, July 22, the Mr. Sportsman Classic takes place at New Egypt Speedway on Fan Appreciation Night. A 30-lap feature for the Hammer Sportsman will headline the racing card. The Crate Modifieds, Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars and Street Stocks will be in competition as well. An exhibition race featuring crew members from several race teams will close out the night.
