The Pioneer Pole Building Jersey Rush VII will return to the New Egypt Speedway Tuesday night, July 25 with many of the top drivers of the 410 sprints joining a long list of modified stars in this wildly popular 410 Sprint & Modified doubleheader. Gates open at 5 PM with racing taking the green flag at 7:30 PM. Be sure to come to New Egypt Speedway early and be of the pre-race Pit Party where YOU may visit the pits, meet the drivers and get an up close look at the race cars prior to racing action.
