Milestone for Pauch, Wins 80th career feature at New Egypt
New Egypt, NJ (Sept. 19, 2009)
– Saturday night
at New Egypt Speedway marked another milestone in the long and storied
career of Billy Pauch. Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ visited Modifed
victory lane for the 80th time in his career on Red, White and Blue
Night sponsored by C & S Equipment. Pauch raced from 17th starting
spot to the lead in just 8 laps and then held off several challenges
from Rick Laubach over the second half of the race to record his 9th
win of the season.
Hendershot took the lead at the start of the 30-lap event, however it
was short lived as 11th starter Dominick Buffalino was on a rail in
the low groove moving up to second by just the second lap. Buffalino
wasted no time grabbing the lead on lap three, and one lap later, 17th
starter Pauch blasted thru for second as he was following Buffalino up
thru the field. Buffalino showed he may be the car to beat on two
consecutive restarts as he pulled away from Pauch with relative ease,
however his night was short lived as he coasted to a stop on lap #8 in
turn one, ending his great run. Puach then inherited the lead
and all eyes focused on the next challenger coming thru quickly, one
time winner Rick Laubach. Laubach would challenge on several
restarts, but on the long runs, he had just enough to stay with Pauch.
One final restart with 3 laps to go set up a final shootout between
the two, but Pauch was too strong on this night as he posted the
victory by 2 car lengths. Laubach settled for second and lost 4
more points to Pauch in the championship chase, as Pauch now holds a
32 point advantage entering the final point race of the season which
will be held on Wednesday night Sept. 30th. Bob Drayton had
another strong showing finishing in third, followed by Kenny Carberry
and Mike McAleer.
Fox of Penndel, PA scored his first victory of the season in the
Crate-1 Sportsman feature. Fox lead early, then rallied back
past leader Bryan Papiez to cross the line first. Finishing second was
Harry Marlin, followed by Pat Wall in third, John Micek fourth and
Bobby Dmuchowski fifth.
Ormsbee of Wall, NJ won for the second straight race, defeating point
leader and defending champ Todd Cray in the 20 lap Super Stock
feature. Shawn McCaughey , Jason Bubeck and George Quinlan chased
Ormsbee and Cray across the finish line to complete the top five.
Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club was on hand and competed on the
track with two 10-lap exhibition races.

Off-Road Racing Series. Competitors from all over the east and
