Looking for his second Rislone URC Sprint Series Championship, JJ Grasso will lead his fellow competitors to the New Egypt Speedway this Saturday night. In addition to that second title, Grasso is also looking for his fifth URC win of the season. There is no doubt that no one drives the New Egypt Speedway like JJ and Saturday night, he’ll be gunning for that victory. Some say, just watching JJ at New Egypt is worth the price of admission. Along with the Rislone URC Sprints will be the FASTRAK Crate Championship, the Sportsman and the Vintage cars. URC will continue their salute to the late Kramer Williamson and race fans are encouraged to wear pink in honor of the familiar “Pink Panther” #73 driven by Williamson. New Egypt Speedway will also hold Fan Appreciation Night. Gates will open at 4 PM with race time set for 6 PM.
Race fans are invited to take part in the pre-race Fan Fest from 4 to 5 PM. Come out early and see the cars and meet the drivers in the New Egypt Speedway pit area. Just enter the pits by the fourth turn picnic area. Face painting, a craft project, games and free ice cream will highlight the Fan Fest.
Kevin Darling was the URC feature winner at New Egypt on July 6 and JJ Grasso was the winner of the $5,000 payday in the 410 sprint Jersey Rush in August. Grasso leads the Rislone URC point chase followed by Josh Weller and Davie Franek. Randy West and Chad Trout round out URC’s top five in the point chase.
Adult admission is $20, seniors 65 and older are $18, teens 12 to 15 and active military and their spouses are $10. Children 11 years of age and younger will be admitted for free.
