and Experience Carry Pauch to 8th New Egypt Victory
New Egypt, NJ (August 15, 2009)
the eighth time this season, Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ was the
winner of the 30 lap Big-Block Modified feature at New Egypt Speedway
on Saturday night. Pauch charged from 17th starting spot and ran down
young Frank Cozze Jr. with just 3 laps to go to capture his 79th
career win on “Women on Wheels” night. Pauch had to use all of his
experience to catch and pass a very fast & determined Cozze Jr.
who came very close to posting his second career win in his rookie
tell you what, Cozze Jr. is really good!” exclaimed an excited but
winded Pauch in victory lane, “The second half of the race the track
had some wet spots where you could get a good bite, and that is where
my experience came in to play. I was searching for those spots and a
groove where I could pass him and fortunately I was able to figure it
out before the race ended.”
Jr. started on the outside of the front row, but had to settle for
running second in the early going and fourth starter John Miloszar
grabbed the early lead. Miloszar and Cozze Jr. showed the way as Kenny
Carberry and Richie Pratt Jr. moved into contention. Cozze Jr.
wrestled the lead away from Miloszar and the top four moved away from
the rest of the pack until a lap 10 restart closed up the field. Pauch
and NY invader Danny Johnson, who started side by side on row nine,
were now both knocking on the door and began to challenge on the
restart. Pauch replaced Miloszar in the top four, and again Cozze Jr.,
Pratt Jr who was now second, Carberry and Pauch pulled away. These top
four kept the crowd on the edge of their seats, with Pauch racing side
by side with Carberry for 5 straight laps. The final restart on lap 18
found Pauch finally getting by a tough Ken Carberry and then
challenging an equally tough Pratt. Another five laps and Pratt fell
victim to the four time champion and with five laps to go only a fast
Cozze Jr. stood between Pauch and victory lane. With the young Cozze
Jr. holding his line and not giving an inch, Pauch found the bite he
was looking for in turn one and drove under the rookie and on to his
fourth win in the last five weeks.
Infante of Robbinsville, NJ won his fifth Sportsman feature of the
season in the 20 lap event. Infante passed Pat Wall for the top spot
on lap 13 and drove to the victory over former Super Stock champ
George Quinlan. Jeff Geiges brought the Mongiello Racing #94M home
third ahead of Jeff Marcucci and JT Trestensky.
Bifulco won the 20 lap Outlaw Stock feature event for his first ever
win at the speedway after many years of trying. Bifulco charged from
8th starting spot to second only to spin on lap 3 and restart at the
tail of the field. He then roared back thru the pack, taking the lead
at halfway, and after a spirited battle with Shanon Mongeau took the
lead for good on lap 13 and went on to the popular victory.
Defending champion Rich Mongeau stole second from Shanon Mongeau on
the final lap, while Jason Saredy and point leader Vern McLaughlin
rounded out the top five.
the SS Sprint/Limited Sprint feature, Johnny Wyers once again topped
the competition to take the checkered flag first. John McClelland
finished second followed by Ian Borden, Dan Biggs and Jeff Davis.
