NEW EGYPT, NJ (July 7, 2017) – This is the date that Pioneer Pole Buildings present Jersey Rush VII – a thrilling double main event show featuring the region’s most popular racing divisions, plus a pre-race pit party – at New Egypt Speedway.
Billed as ‘The Ultimate Double Header,’ Jersey Rush VII combines the 410 Sprint Cars and the Modifieds for a full night of action on the racy d-shaped clay oval.
The 410 Sprint Cars will race for a $4,000 winner’s share, with $1,000 bonus available for the highest finishing pre-registered car. $1,000 will go to the tenth place finisher and $300 to start the A-main. The area’s fastest Sprint Car drivers will compete in 10 lap heat races – set from time trials, and a 12 lap B-Main before the 30 lap main event. Only approved Hoosier H-Series tires will be eligible for competition.
Entry for Sprint Car competitors is $50 and includes 3 FREE pit passes.
Previous Jersey Rush winners Greg Hodnett, Ryan Smith and JJ Grasso are among the first to enter the July 25 event. While fan favorites like Danny Dietrich and Lucas Wolfe are chasing their first victories at the Jersey dirt track.
The Modifieds will compete for a $3,000 top prize with $1,000 going to the fifth place finisher and $250 to start the feature event. The top-12 heat race finishers will redraw for feature starting positions. Modifieds MUST use American Racer tires with a left rear 44 compound and a right rear 48 compound. Competitors have the option of running a Big-Block with windows or a spec Small-Block with Sail Panels. Big-Blocks must weigh a minimum of 2,500 lbs.; Open Small Blocks must weigh a minimum of 2,450 lbs. and use windows; Spec Small Blocks on alcohol must weigh a minimum of 2,350 lbs. and on gas a minimum of 2,275 lbs. and have the option to run sail panels.
