Advantage Puts Up $5G New Egypt Legends Bonus
New Egypt, NJ (September 21) -- Advantage Financial, the mortgage banking
firm headquartered in Robbinsville, NJ, is making a tantalizing offer to
drivers participating in New Egypt Speedway's Legends of the Fall weekend,
sponsored by Advanced Wireless and Sprint PCS: Win both the Samsung
Sportsman 50 on Saturday, October 13 and the Sprint PCS Modified 50 on
Sunday, October 14 and Advantage will write you a big $5,000 bonus check.
The "Big Advantage" $5,000 challenge was announced this week by Advantage
Financial president Gene Stravinsky, who also heads up two affiliate
companies providing insurance and investment brokerage services. By offering
the bonus, Stravinsky is, in a sense, throwing down the gauntlet: As a
second-year Sportsman driver himself, Stravinsky knows just how competitive
the division is -- and he believes a Modified racer won't necessarily find
it "easy pickings."
"With weekly car counts between 45-60 and the rules so tight, the
competition in the Sportsman division is already the toughest in New Jersey,
and this end-of-the-year show is certain to attract even more cars,"
Stravinsky stated. "I think even a more experienced Modified driver will
find it hard to sweep both races. But if anyone can pull it off, I'm
certainly prepared to reward him for his efforts."
Even putting the $5,000 "Big Advantage" aside, there's some serious money on
the line in the October 13 Samsung Sportsman 50. With a first-place payoff
of $3,000, and a Modified-style break down the line, the 50-lapper is sure
to entice drivers from throughout the area, both Modified and Sportsman. And
if a driver can sweep the weekend, winning both the Sportsman race on
Saturday and Sunday's Modified 50 -- that man will waltz home with $13,000
cash in his pockets for a mere 100 laps around the New Egypt half-mile.
All Sportsman entries must meet New Egypt rules for the division. Mod and
Sportsman competitors can run any brand 13x92-inch tire; Sportsman must have
Gates open at 12 noon on both days and racing gets underway at 2:30 pm when
Advanced Wireless and Sprint PCS present New Egypt's Legends of the Fall
weekend on October 13 and 14, featuring URC Sprints and Sportsman on
Saturday and Mods and Street Stocks on Sunday. Adult admission is $18 on
Saturday, $20 on Sunday. Adults can purchase a two-day ticket for $35.
Children ages 7-12 are $7 both days; a two-day children's ticket is $12, and
