New Egypt Speedway Results 8/9/2008  


I attended New Egypt Speedway again last night and saw some excellent racing. You can find the complete results in this post here at, and also at

Joe at has some great "off track" photos from New Egypt, which can be found here. I want to thank Joe at for allowing me to use a few of his photos.

Outlaw Stocks-Vern McLaughlin makes a last lap, last turn pass through lapped traffic to take his 1st win at New Egypt Speedway over Gary Klimecheck, who has so far dominated the season.

Modified - First time winner Kenny Meisner holds off big dogs Billy Pauch and Frank Cozze. They were running hard. No lapped cars, no mistakes, Kenny just flat outran them. Wanna see something cool? Go over to and scroll to the bottom and you will see photos of both Kenny Meisner, along with a picture of his father Phil Meisner in Victory Lane at Flemington Speedway.

SS Sprint - Former Modified driver, and full time URC Sprint car driver Mark Bitner was flying around the top to win the feature in a borrowed car. Early leader Lee Taylor Jr. got caught up with a lapped car and flipped violently, but walked away.

Sportsman - Track was getting dry and slick, but there was plenty of three wide racing, and Willie Osmun just charged to the front. He had everyone covered. Very exciting to watch.

Super Stock - They ran as well, but I missed most of the feature and don't have any photos from victory lane. Billy Bauer won the feature.

There were several serious accidents tonight. Lee Taylor Jr. flipped while leading the SS Sprint feature, but was reportedly OK. There was also a pileup and wreck in the Sportsman consi, with at least one car, I believe it was Chad Barney, flipping. Finally, there was a large pile up in the Modified feature, which sent Modified driver John Keller to the hospital to get checked out. Word is that he suffered some neck and back injuries. Hopefully John will be OK and back racing soon.

What next?
