EAST WINDSOR SPEEDWAY STOCK CAR RACERS HAVE A LOT
TO SHOOT FOR WHEN SEASON OPENS THIS FRIDAY (APRIL 20)

EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ~ Large fields of competitors in the Modified,
Sportsman and Street Stock divisions are expected when the East Windsor
Speedway opens the 2001 season this Friday evening (April 20) at 7:30 p.m.
and with good reason. In addition to lucrative weekly purses, a large array
of sponsors have stepped up for contingency awards and the end of the year
point fund.

Track officials, led by track owner Don "Butch" Jones, Jr. and promoter
Jack Simmons, have confirmed that Hoosier Tires will return as the official
tire at the track. A-1 Racing Products, Kramer Performance Engines, Jones
Racing Products, Nickerson Performance Racing Carburetors, Spin Trap
Performance Mufflers, Mudd Off, Nelds Steering, Fuel Safe, Outerwears and
Budd Olsen Speed Supplies are all on board as 2001 East Windsor Speedway
point fund and contingency sponsors.

The list of competitors is long and impressive. In the Modifieds where
Veteran Jimmy Horton was champion last year, drivers like Kenny Brightbill,
Billy Pauch and Doug Hoffman are all expected to be fighting for the crown
this year. In fact, competition will be stronger than ever since the
Big-Block Modifieds will be making a return to the track after an absence of
many seasons. The Big- Blocks will battle the Small-Blocks on a weekly basis.

Al Cheney is expected to try for his second straight Street Stock crown in
2001 and brothers Ryan and Bryan Godown are expected to return to wrestle for
the family's third straight Sportsman title.

Dirt track stock car racing action moves into the spotlight as the 2001
racing season begins on East Windsor's half mile clay oval on Friday evening
(April 20) weather permitting. The Big-Block and Small-Block Modifieds,
Sportsman and Street Stock racers are all scheduled for qualifying and main
event action.

Racing will then continue every Friday night at 7:30 p.m. through
September. For more information on the 2001 East Windsor Speedway schedule

EAST WINDSOR SPEEDWAY STOCK CAR SEASON OPENS
THIS FRIDAY NIGHT (APRIL 20)

EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ~ After one of the coldest, snowiest winters in recent
memories, fans and competitors are ready to welcome one of their favorite
signs of spring this Friday evening (April 20) when the East Windsor Speedway
swings open its gates for the 2001 dirt track auto racing season. The first
green flag waves at 7:30 p.m.

Perhaps the person most excited about the new season is Promoter Jack
Simmons.

"This has been a tough off season for a lot of people for a lot of
reasons," Simmons said. "The winter was cold and snowy and March and April
have been no better with record rainfall and cold temperatures. I hope that
this bad weather is getting out of the system so we have a nice spring and
summer.

"After the bad weather, I'm more than ready to get back to racing and I
know a lot of other people are. Judging by pre-season registrations, we are
going to have a strong field in all three divisions. I'm also looking forward
to the return of Big-Block Modifieds to East Windsor and to see how they
stack up against the Small-Block Modifieds."
