2013 Weekly Race Reports

Races rained out May 11

Seymour, May 11 – With an immenant threat of weather forecast, N.E.W. DIRT  set up shop for their second program of the season Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway.     A field of 80 hopeful teams checked in and an equally optimistic crowd turned out and watched three heat races before the rains came and washed out the balance of the nights activities.

Rain checks will be honored either of the next 2 weeks.  If anyone uses them for the first race of the Summer Holiday Classic series race on Memorial Day weekend, May 25, the Special Event price will be in effect and the difference will be charged at the gate.

N.E.W. DIRT would like to THANK all those that made the trip out to the Seymour Speedway Sunday and hope to see you next week when we will try again.


WILD finish at Seymour Opener

Seymour, May 5- N.E.W. DIRT opened their 30th Anniversary season Sunday night at the Seymour Speedway with a stout field of 121 cars checking in to do battle on the 1/3 mile banked clay oval.

The Street Stocks opened the feature portion of the program with Jon Ashcraft of Oshkosh settling into the top spot  on the first lap.   Following a lap 7 caution, Jerry Kope and Mert Summers joined the leader and the trio pulled away from the field in a tight battle for the lead.   Kope dove to the inside and there was a three wide battle for most of the nest lap, with Kope emerging as the leader on lap 16.

Kope was able to hold off the challenge and took the feature win for the first win of the season and first at Seymour since May 28, 2006.   Summers held off Ashcraft for the runner up spot with Dan Davister taking fourth and Jeff Jungwirth rounding out the top 5.
