New Egypt, NJ – The race to the chase for the 2015 New Egypt Speedway May Modified Madness title has officially kicked off with Ryan Godown drawing first blood by thoroughly dominating the first two races of the season.
There is a small twist added to this year’s series”Win and you’re in.” If you win the feature in any of the three previous rounds, you are automatically qualified to be a part of the finals on May 30th. A maximum of six cars could take part in the final round, the three finalists along with the three feature winners from previous rounds (if they are not already of the final group).
Lap sponsorship’s for the 35-lap, double points May Modified Madness finale on May 30th, are now available at $20 per lap. Lap money will go to the driver who leads the most amount of laps throughout the four race series. If you wish to sponsor a lap e-mail [email protected] If all laps sell out we will double up. Last year Tim Apgar led the most laps over the course of the rain shortened three race series with 20 over Pat Wall who led 19. As of right now the lap leader bonus is over $300.
“With these each being handicap shows, all the guys that need extra money the most will be starting toward the front. If they can lead laps consistently this will help them out tremendously in the long run,” said series promoter Pete MacDonald.
