Another 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.

Mike 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.

Gabe 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.

Rob 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.

The Garden State Vintage Stock Car Club was on hand and competed on the track with two 10-lap exhibition races.


Next Saturday, Sept. 26, is the third and final stop of the NJ Extreme Off-Road Racing Series.  Competitors from all over the east and Canada are expected to be on hand to compete in the events which get underway at 5pm.  The on Wed. Sept. 30, NES will make up last Saturday’s program of Modifieds, Sportsman and Outlaw Stocks. This will be the final point race for the Modifieds of 2009.  For more information, call the speedway office at (609) 758-1900 or visit our website at www.newegyptspeedway.net.
