THE JERSEY RUSH VIII IS A NO GO FOR 2018, EVENT TO RETURN TO NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY IN 2019

NEW EGYPT, NJ  (August 1, 2018) – For seven years, the Pioneer Pole Buildings Jersey Rush thrilled race fans with an exciting double header of 410 Sprints and Modifieds however,  the forecast of threatening weather on Tuesday night, July 24 stopped the eighth running of the event.   After  scrambling to find a date that would accommodate race teams, tracks, and fans, the Jersey Rush promotional team announced today that the 2018 running of the event will not be rescheduled.

“We hoped to find an opening in the racing schedule that would make things easy for both the race teams and race fans,” Co-Promoter Bob Miller stated.  “With the amount of midweek shows it was difficult to find a date that didn’t conflict with another event.”

The Jersey Rush will return to New Egypt Speedway in 2019 and will carry the sponsorship of  Pioneer Pole Buildings.

Jersey Rush is co-promoted by Lenny, Danny, and Davey Sammons and special event promoter Bob Miller.

We thank everyone for their past support of the Jersey Rush and we especially want to thank the many drivers that were pre-entered for the event.   The show was sure to deliver one of the strongest roster of competitors in the history of the event.   We’re looking forward to doing it again in 2019 at New Egypt.
