World of Outlaws Highlight New Egypt Sked

New Egypt, NJ (Jan. 4) -- Mark a big, red circle around July 30 on New Egypt
Speedway's just released 2001 racing schedule -- and make sure you don't
miss "The Greatest Show on Dirt."

New Egypt Speedway owners Rick and Nancy Grosso and Lebanon Valley's Howard
Commander have teamed up to bring the high-profile Pennzoil World of Outlaws
sprint series to the Garden State for a truly wild $51,600 one-shot on
Monday night, July 30. And you can bet the hot-ticket event will attract an
overflow crowd to see "The King,"16-time WoO series champ Steve Kinser, take
on Sammy Swindell, Danny "The Dude" Lasoski, Mark Kinser, Jac "Wild Child"
Haudenschild, Stevie Smith, Andy Hillenburg, Donnie Schatz and a band of
other bona fide sprint stars in their only New Jersey appearance of the
year.

"We're thrilled, to say the least, to have the Outlaws at New Egypt," Rick
Grosso said. "This is a big opportunity for us."

"Many other promoters were vying to bring the Outlaws to this very popular
New Jersey facility," according to Howard Commander, Grosso's partner in the
venture and a former RPM Promoter of the Year who is behind 2001 Outlaw
dates at Talladega, Rolling Wheels, Lebanon Valley and two Midwestern
tracks, in addition to New Egypt. "I'm convinced this show will be a huge
success."

Rich Pallai, Vice President of Marketing for Carquest auto parts stores, is
equally confident. "We always try to align ourselves with a premier division
at a premier facility," Pallai said of Carquest's sponsorship of the event.
"From what I've heard about New Egypt, this certainly fits that bill."

A special hotline number will be set up to purchase advance tickets to New
Egypt's WoO show. The $30 reserved seats will go on sale the end of
February.

In addition to the eagerly-anticipated Outlaw invasion, New Egypt's 2001
schedule features an Advance Auto Parts Super DIRT Series 100-lap event for
the big-block Modifieds on Thursday, June 21; four appearances by the URC
sprint cars, including the club's season opener on April 14; the Medal of
Honor 50-lap Modified program on Memorial Day weekend; Ladies' Night, with
Powder Puff races for the women sponsored by Burnett Racing Engines, on
August 4; and Crew's Cruise Night, with a special crew chief challenge race,
on September 29. A variety of fan-interactive theme nights will include
Advantage Financial's Christmas in July blowout, **** Greenfield's Saturday
Night Fever disco inferno featuring vintage stocks, and Grand Slam Little
League Night, underwritten by Mid-State Communications.

New Egypt's 2001 campaign kicks off with an open daytime practice on
Saturday, March 24, and racing for real on March 31, with big-block Mods,
Sportsman, Street Stocks and Rookie Sportsman on the card. The central
Jersey speedway will be in action every Saturday night through September 29,
with a one-week breather before the big finale Legends of the Fall two-day
weekend on October 13-14.
