New Egypt Outlaw Tickets On Sale March 12
New Egypt, NJ (Mar. 2) -- For anxious fans who have been jamming up the
phone lines since Christmastime, hoping for first shot at what may be the
hottest ticket in town -- your wait is over. Monday, March 12, is the
official kickoff date for advance ticket sales for New Egypt Speedway's July
30 Pennzoil World of Outlaws blockbuster, sponsored by CARQUEST Auto Parts.
The high-profile event will bring the country's premier touring Sprint cars
and stars to New Jersey for the first time in over a decade, and Garden
State fans are simply swooning at the thought of seeing 16-time WoO series
champ Steve Kinser, Danny "The Dude" Lasoski, Mark Kinser, Jac "Wild Child"
Haudenschild, Stevie Smith, Andy Hillenburg, the Chesson boys and Donnie
Schatz in a high-speed showdown on Jersey turf.
"This show has been the topic of conversation all winter," said track owner
Rick Grosso Sr., who is partnering with Lebanon Valley Speedway promoter
Howard Commander to present the national event. "The fans are all excited,
and so are we. It's going to be great."
Reserved-seat tickets for New Egypt's "Greatest Show on Dirt" -- starring
the Pennzoil World of Outlaws with a Sportsman Invitational undercard on
Monday night, July 30 -- are priced at $30. A special hotline number has
been set up for advance ticket sales only: starting March 12, fans can call
(908) 359-1183, Monday through Friday from 10 am to 3 pm, to order tickets
by telephone. The track can accept payment by VISA or MasterCard, as well as
cash, check or money order.
Fans will also be able to purchase reserved Outlaw seats at the track on
Saturdays starting March 24, when New Egypt officially opens the gates to
unveil its newly enlarged track configuration to a waiting public. A noon to
5 pm practice session on March 24 will enable racers to get the feel of the
bigger, half-mile tri-oval before racing starts for real on Saturday, March
31. The groundshaking big-block Modifieds, Sportsman and Street Stocks are
on the opening day card. For more information, call the speedway office at
