Pauch Reaches Milestone with 75th Career Big-Block Win at NES
New Egypt, NJ (June 6, 2009)
Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won his 75th career Big-Block Modified feature
at the New Egypt Speedway Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap
Cray Electric sponsored main event. Pauch took the lead just before
halfway and was never headed enroute to his 4th win of the season.
hot shoe Johnny Guarino, Jr. took command at the drop of the green
flag over Jim Robertson leading the first three laps of the event.
Dominick Buffalino, who started fifth, was on the move and quickly
grabbed the lead on lap four from Guarino and looked fast in the early
going. Buffalino lead for 7 laps until Pauch, who started 18th,
burst on the scene and charged into the top spot on lap 11. Rick
Laubach was in hot pursuit at this point and quickly took over second
and the chase was on. Despite trying different grooves and
lines, Laubach had nothing for Pauch on this night as he cruised to
his second win in a row. Laubach settled for second followed by
a great run by Mike McAleer, who once again impressed by finishing
third. Frank Cozze rebounded back from a mid race spin, rim
riding all the way back around heavy traffic to finish fourth while
Sam Martz finished a solid fifth.
Cray of Trenton, NJ, shined very brightly on his sponsor’s night as
he took the title of Mr. Super Stock for the second time in three
years, capturing the 25 lap title race sponsored by Cray Electric/Cray
Motorsports. Cray got to the front quickly from the back of the pack
to lead, but was run down by 2 time champ Rob Ormsbee. His lead was
short-lived as a few laps later, Cray raced back by and took command,
going on to win to the delight of his friends and family. Ormsbee
crossed the line in second but was disqualified after failing the post
race inspection. Jason Bubeck drove a nice race to finish second,
followed by George Quinlan, Billy Bauer and Marty Derr.
Micek held off the hard charging Jon Haegele over the final half of
the race to win a popular victory in the 20 lap Crate-1 Sportsman
feature. Haegele had to settle for second followed by Gabe Fox in
third. Bryan Kuhl finished fourth with Pat Wall in fifth.
the Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman
series, D.J. Ruppert won his fifth in a row, capturing the 8 lap
feature event. Ruppert defeated Brian Roemer again, who won the first
three Rookie features this season. Matt Vaillancourt brought his
entry home in third.
