New Egypt, NJ – In a year plagued by rainouts, New Egypt Speedway has been forced to cancel its 2018 Modified Points Finale. It will not be rescheduled and David VanHorn is the 2018 New Egypt Speedway Modified champion worth $10,000.
“This championship is just as much for my team as it is me, they worked their tails off weekly for this”, said VanHorn.
It is his first career New Egypt Speedway track championship and he did so without winning a weekly points event, his only win on the season came during the Garden State Gunfight on Wednesday night June 27th.
