PAUCH PICKS UP HIS SECOND NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY CHECKERED FLAG OF THE YEAR

 

New Egypt, NJ (April 22, 2018) – At New Egypt Speedway, Billy Pauch, Jr. picked up his second checkered flag of the year after beating his rivals in the Modified feature. Art Liedl was victorious in the Hammer Sportsman main event. The Crate Modified feature was won by Jordan Cox. Eric Jennings took top honors in the Larry’s Hot Rods & Harley’s Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars feature. Ryan Heim won the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie Sportsman race.

Polesitter Chad Barney grabbed the lead as the 30-lap Modified feature began with Richie Pratt, Jr. and Jim Bobbitt next in line. After several caution periods and eight tours recorded, Barney was still in charge with Steve Davis, Matt Stangle, Billy Pauch, Jr. and Pratt, Jr. completing the top five. At the halfway point, the front four of Barney, Davis, Stangle and Pauch, Jr. were racing in close quarters of one another. Shortly afterwards, Pauch, Jr., who started the event in twenty-fourth, began to use the middle racing lanes in the corners and motored into second place on the seventeenth revolution. Two laps later, Pauch, Jr. scooted past Barney to take over first place. Once on top, Pauch, Jr. began to pull away from the field. Behind the leader and with nine circuits to go, Stangle edged up into third while eighteenth place starting David VanHorn continued his march forward as he moved into fourth. As Pauch, Jr. was beginning to approach lap traffic, his comfortable lead evaporated due to a caution period for Tim Apgar with four laps to go. On the ensuing restart, Pauch, Jr. held off Barney with VanHorn advancing into third, Davis riding in fourth and Stangle slipping back to fifth. Over the final laps, Pauch, Jr. distanced himself away from the pack and cruised to his second win of the year. Barney’s strong run netted him second place. With VanHorn finishing third, Davis was fourth and Stangle was fifth. Matt Stangle, Ryan Godown and Dominick Buffalino were the Modified heat winners.

PAUCH IS VICTORIOUS AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY'S 2018 SEASON OPENER

New Egypt, NJ (April 15, 2018) - On Opening Night at New Egypt Speedway, presented by Oliver Communications Group, Billy Pauch, Jr. was victorious in the extra distance 40-lap Modified feature. Pat Wall topped the field in the Hammer Sportsman race. The Street Stock feature was won by Bill Liedtka. Ryan Heim took the checkered flag in the Lyons Construction/Metal Fab Rookie contest.

As the 40-lap double point Modified feature got underway, polesitter Steve Davis sped to the front with JR Fulper and Billy Pauch, Jr. next in line. With three tours completed, Pauch, Jr. had motored into second with Brandon Grosso advancing to third. On lap four, Pauch, Jr. was just about to take command of the race when the yellow flag waved for Brian Papiez. On the ensuing restart, Pauch, Jr. used the outside groove to drive by Davis and into the lead. After several caution periods and ten circuits in the books, Pauch, Jr. was still in control with Danny Bouc, Grosso, Dominick Buffalino, Jimmy Horton and Davis in tow.

Due to the total amount of circuits under green and yellow flag conditions, a fuel stop took place at lap seventeen with Pauch, Jr., Grosso, Bouc, David VanHorn and Kevin Vaclavicek in the top five positions. When racing got back underway, Pauch, Jr. retained his edge with Grosso holding onto second and VanHorn zipping into third. While cleanup of a lap eighteen multi-car tangle was occurring, Grosso went pitside and relinquished second place to VanHorn. Pauch, Jr. repelled a strong bid by Van Horn for the top running spot as action resumed. By the twenty-fifth tour, Pauch, Jr. was beginning to pull away from the pack with Bouc in second and VanHorn in third. As the leader was approaching the back of the field and with only six circuits remaining, the yellow lights illuminated for a slowing Ryan Krachun.
