New Egypt Speedway
The NERS 305 Sprint Car 20 lap feature saw Kyle Reinhardt of Neptune City, NJ win for the first time in 2014 as he passed Stephanie Palmai with just two laps remaining. Reinhardt made the winning pass powering around the outside of Palmai coming off of turn four at the two-to-go signal, just before the Red lights appeared for Ryan Stillwagon, who had flipped down the pit entrance gate. Mike Haggenbottom took up the chase on the restart but had nothing for the leader as Reinhardt posted his 6th career 305 Sprint victory at the track…the most All-Time. Haggenbottom was a strong second followed by the point leader Tim Tanner, who came all the way from 18th starting spot. Palmai completed another strong run in fourth after leading for 17 laps, as she continues to get closer to that elusive first victory at NES. Previous winner Bobby Devault rounded out the top five.
