DIRT TRACK STOCK CAR RACING RAINED OUT AT EAST WINDSOR SPEEDWAY FRIDAY (JUNE
1) - "RUN WHAT YA BRUNG" ACTION RESET FOR ALL CLASSES ON JUNE 8
EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ~ A light but steady afternoon rain, along with the
forecast for heavier showers during the evening and overnight, forced East
Windsor Speedway promoter Jack Simmons to throw in the towel for the third
straight week on Friday evening (June 1). That rained out program, featuring
"Run What Ya Brung" action, has been reset for this Friday evening, June 8,
at 7:30 p.m.
Action will be wide open when the famed half mile clay oval presents its
first "Run What Ya Brung" racing program when action resumes this Friday
evening at 7:30 p.m. Simply put, invaders from any speedway will be welcome
to bring their cars to the speedway for competition in the Modified,
Sportsman and Street Stock classes as long as they are equipped with speedway
legal tires. Mufflers are also a must. More information can be obtained by
calling either 609-448-8510 or 732-521-0910.
Doug Hoffman of Allentown, Pa., Jimmy Horton of Whitehouse Station and
Kenny Brightbill of Sinking Spring, Pa., all feature winners already this
season, will be trying to add to their win totals on Friday night. Still,
there are many other candidates for glory including Billy Pauch of
Frenchtown, Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville, Fred Dmuchowski of Neshanic
Station, Eddie Bohn of Freehold plus the host of invaders expected. The
Modifieds battle in a 25-lap feature.
The Sportsman division will return for a 20-lap main event, while the
Street Stocks compete in a 15-lapper. Again, all are welcome to enter this
"Run What Ya Brung" competition in both divisions.
This Friday night will also be "Going Fast for Gary" night at the
speedway as the racing community raises funds for a young man who is
suffering from leukemia. In addition to passing the helmet through the
grandstands, many drivers will be autographing photos in the mid-way area
before the races and donating items to be presented to the fans all in the
name of raising money for the youngster's needs.
Located just minutes from Exit 8 of the New Jersey Turnpike on Airport
Road, the East Windsor Speedway is easy to get to from anywhere. For more
