New Jersey Motorsports Park And Rally America U.S. Rallycross Series
Announce Saturday, May 19, 2012 Event Date
New event format this year offers a Rallycross Race and will also feature a Supermoto Bike Raceon a course made up of pavement and gravel
MILLVILLE, NJ – March 7, 2012 – New Jersey Motorsports Park (NJMP) and Rally America U.S. Rallycross Series are proud to announce that the 2012 NJMP Rallycross, presented by Tony Carbajal, will take place on Saturday, May 19, 2012 at NJMP located at 8000 Dividing Creek Road, Millville, NJ.
This new event format for 2012 offers a Rallycross Race, featuring Rally-style cars, where five drivers line up to start all at once piloting high horsepower compact cars jumping and sliding through race traffic over a challenging short road course, made up of pavement and gravel, featuring jumps, unbanked turns, hills and transitions. During the race, each car must also take a “joker” lap at some point during their heat. A “joker lap” is a small detour normally over a jump that adds a level of unpredictability to the heat’s outcome by changing a driver’s strategy in an instant.
Also racing on the seventy-percent tarmac and thirty-percent gravel Rallycross track, for this new event in 2012, will be a Supermoto Bike Race including 250, 450 and Open Class Bikes.
“This exciting new addition will add a new unique on-track twist and expanded fan experience,” stated Brad Scott, General Manager, NJMP.
Off-track during the event there will be Motorcycle Stunt Performances by TC Freestyle Entertainment, featuring Tony Carbajal, who has performed at last year’s NJMP events including the GRAND-AM and AMA Pro-Racing weekends. Carbajal is known for revlimiter coaster combos and long stoppies combined with a variation of straight-line combo wheelies – sure crowd pleasers!
“In addition to the racing at this popular family event, there will be Monster Trucks rides, Kids’ Activity Zone, Mechanical Bull Riding and more— all conveniently located within the Lightning Track Paddock at NJMP,” added Scott.
Tickets for the 2012 NJMP Rallycross, presented by Tony Carbajal, will go on sale Thursday, March 8, 2012 through the NJMP website, www.njmp.com. Individual adult tickets are $15 if purchased on-line, and will be $20 at the gate on the day of the event. For children under 12 years of age, tickets are $10 on-line and $15 at the gate. A Family 4-Pack (2 adults, 2 children) will only be $40 on-line and $60 at the gate.
