New Egypt Speedway Modified Heat video: May 22, 2010  


Jimmy Horton in Victory Lane

Last night was a decent night of racing at NES, with the show moving along quickly due to the threat of rain. Rain did finally come at 9:30, cutting short the Speedster feature, which I wasn't watching anyway. It kind of felt like a two division night since the Speedsters and Late Models didn't really do it for me. NES needed the Sprint class running last night to complete the package. The Sprint cars were running at Bridgeport last night, and I'm sure they put on a good show. Congrats to Jimmy Horton on a well deserved win in the Modified feature.

Here's a video of Heat number 2 in which Mike McAleer suffered a bad flip down the backstretch. Mike took an ambulance ride but was reportedly released before the night's events were complete. Johnny McClelland had a bit of luck fall his way in this one. Johnny Mac got was caught up in the first wreck and didn't make it out in time. McAleer's wreck, and subsequent red flag, allowed Johnny Mac to return to the track without losing a lap, eventually finishing 6th for the last qualifying spot.

What next?
