NEW EGYPT, N.J. – In 2014 New Egypt Speedway will be running its own RaceSaver Sprint division titled the New Egypt RaceSaver Sprint Series.
After the TSRS club management and New Egypt Speedway management mutually decided to part ways, the speedway began negotiations with the RaceSaver Series and its founder French Grimes to become a RaceSaver sanctioned track to preserve RaceSaver Sprint racing at the speedway for many years to come.
Under the leadership of New Egypt Speedway, the NERS series will race 14 times in 2014 with the rules, handicapping, and point payout remaining the same as it was under the TSRS banner. Speedway tech officials will work closely with French Grimes to keep the integrity of the RaceSaver name while the division races with the speedway.
New Egypt tech officials will seal new motors with a RaceSaver seal and will honor motors sealed by a RaceSaver legal organization. Tech officials will place numbered destructible tape over all previous seals that will show evidence if it is tampered with.
The 2013 purse will remain intact while drivers vote to decide how they would like the payout to be distributed. Those finishing in the top 10 in points at the conclusion of the 2014 season will be honored at the annual Awards Banquet at the end of the season.
The NERS series will also be given several practice seasons at the beginning of the year to try to establish a wingless rules package. This is a goal of the Speedway to produce safe and cost effective wingless racing within the RaceSaver division during the 2014 season. The speedway would like to debut the wingless NERS during the Military Heroes 30 event on July 5. A special payout will be devised for all NERS wingless events.
The 2014 addition of the All Star Cup Shootout will also add the NERS series to its schedule. Much like the Modified and Crate divisions series, any RaceSaver Sprint can enter for their home track or tracks for a $50 per track fee to be entered into the season long point standings.
The 25-lap feature will pay $3,005 to win and $200 to take the green. The Sprint All Star Cup point standings will pay $3,005 to win. With the addition of sponsors, both the race payout and the point payout may increase. The Sprint All Star Cup entry forms can be found on the Speedway’s website www.newegyptspeedway.net under the 2014 Forms section.
