NEW EGYPT, NJ – For Stewart Friesen, there are 13,000 reasons to make the trek from his New York State home to compete at New Egypt Speedway on Thursday, June 11.

The Sprakers, N.Y., 31-year-old has the opportunity to earn $13,000 by entering both the Modified and 360 Sprint Car events as part of the Lentini Auto Salvage ‘Dirty Jersey 3’ special at the Garden State facility. Short Track Super Series Fueled By Hi-Tek (STSS) big-block/small-block Modifieds race 40 laps for a $10,000 winner’s share, while the 360 Sprint Cars, in a United Racing Club (URC) points-paying race, do battle for $3,000 to win in the ‘Turnpike 25’ special.

Should Friesen pull off the Modified/Sprint Car sweep, it would mean more than 13k for just 65 feature laps!

In the Modified portion, Friesen will strap into Jeff Daley’s potent No. 44 small-block. This Teo-Pro mount has already shown prowess in STSS competition, winning the April ‘Hard Clay Open’ at N.Y.’s Orange County Fair Speedway, a score worth more than $5,600.

For 360 Sprint Car action, Doug Emery’s No. 33 Sprint Car will be at the ready. Emery has fielded a winning car for Friesen on a number of occasions during the last few years. Their successes as a team include a pair of $10,000 victories in the Cole Cup at N.Y.’s Utica-Rome Speedway among many ESS conquests.

“New Egypt is a premier facility and a racy track,” said Friesen, a past winner at NES in Modified competition. “I feel good about our chances in both classes. The 44 has been fast when we’ve run it and Doug always has a good piece for us for the Sprint specials.

“To be able to race in front of the New Jersey crowd with both cars is pretty big. I always look forward to the opportunity to race at New Egypt.”

Friesen knows both divisions will be loaded with talent.  The Modified field will boast competitors from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Delaware, Maryland and beyond, while a potent Sprint Car field from the Tri-State area is assembling.

“It’s not going to be easy, that’s for sure,” he said. “With that kind of money up, you know the best of the best will be there in both divisions.”

The Crate 602 Sportsman division joins the STSS Modifieds and 360 Sprint Cars for the program, running a 20-lap event for $750 to win and $75 to take the green flag. Timed warm-ups will set the top-18 starting positions for the main, while a B-Main will fill in the remainder of the feature grid.

Pit gates will open at 3 p.m., with grandstand gates swinging open at 4 p.m. Hot laps take the track at 6 p.m. and racing begins promptly at 7 p.m.

Adult grandstand admission is $29. Seniors (ages 65 and over with ID) and Military (with ID) pay $24.  Students, ages 12-15, pay $12. Kids 11 and under are FREE. Pit admission is $35, with no license required.

Fans can take part in the fun with a pre-race tailgating competition. Prizes will be given away by the roaming ‘Dirty Girls’ in the parking area.
