New Egypt, NJ (June 21) -- New Egypt Speedway fans and competitors will get into the spirit of the season -- the Christmas season, that is -- when mortgage banking firm Advantage Financial presents a festive Christmas in July program at the Central Jersey raceway on Saturday, July 1.

"I enjoy the sport so much, we've combined our annual company outing with a night of fun and big prizes for the fans," said Advantage Financial president Gene Stravinsky, who 's in his rookie season of racing at New Egypt. The Robbinsville, NJ-based Advantage Financial, specializing in residential mortgage loans throughout the tri-state area, also supplies insurance and investment brokerage services through two affiliate companies.

Stravinsky's generosity will be evident on July 1. It starts with "Santa" Nick Leach and his helpers, who will be distributing candy canes and other giveaways at the gate, where Stravinsky's #7a Sportsman car will be on display.

In conjunction with the U.S. Marines' charitable Toys for Tots program, Advantage Financial will also be giving away a sleigh-ful of valuable prizes, including five bicycles, CD players, televisions, VCRs, stereo systems, boom boxes and Walkmans. In order to get a shot at the big Christmas loot, fans must donate a new, unwrapped toy or cash to the Marine representatives organizing the Toys for Tots drive. For every donation made that night, fans will receive one chance to win a big-ticket prize from Advantage Financial's bounty of giveaways -- the more you give, the more chances you get!

And fans will receive an extra gift on the speedway, too: double features for the big-block Modifieds, at no extra charge. Sportsman and Street Stock action are also on the three-division racing card, which commences at 6:30 pm.

Adult admission is $12, children ages 7-12 are $4, and kids 6 and under are free. Come meet "Santa" and win big prizes while helping the Toys for Tots drive -- and see some of the best side-by-side racing this side of the South Pole! For more information, call (609) 758-1900.
