NEW EGYPT–With 30 days until racing returns to New Egypt Speedway, another piece of the 2013 season has been put into place. Today speedway management has introduced Mike Fattori as the new Race Controller.
Mike has been a dirt track racing enthusiast from a young age, attending weekly events at East Windsor Speedway and Flemington Speedway with his parents before ultimately calling New Egypt Speedway his “home” track after their transition to dirt. In 2001, Mike made his own transition, from fan to driver, and for seven years raced in the Sportsman and Crate Sportsman divisions at New Egypt Speedway, East Windsor Speedway and Bridgeport Speedway. For the past three seasons, Mike has been employed by New Egypt Speedway as part of the corner flag team, directing traffic at the back gate of the speedway.
“I’m honored that New Egypt Speedway has chosen me as the Race Controller,” said Fattori. “New Egypt Speedway is a first class facility offering the highest quality and most exciting short track dirt racing in the Northeast region.”
In his new role, Mike’s primary focus will be ensuring an orderly and time-efficient flow of the racing program throughout the night. With his extensive background in racing, both in the stands and as a track employee, Mike will be instrumental in establishing a more effective lineup procedure and utilizing the new instant replay system to make more accurate race decisions.
“I look forward to working with the staff at New Egypt Speedway,” concluded Fattori. “It will be nice to catch up with old friends I’ve met through the years, as well as meeting the drivers and fans.”
Mike’s first order of business will be attending Winter Jam 2013, scheduled for Friday, February 22 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. at Gamblers Ridge Golf Club in Cream Ridge, New Jersey. Mike will be on-site to introduce himself to speedway staff, drivers, crew and fans. Be sure and stop by to say hello and congratulate Mike on his new position.
