Gary Butler Wins Emotional Mothers Day Race at New Egypt
New Egypt, NJ (May
8, 2010) – Gary Butler of Phillipsburg, NJ drove to an
impressive victory at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night as he
captured the 30 lap Mothers Day Weekend feature event. Butler, who started 8th, used the outside
groove on the smooth but slick surface to grab the lead by lap 13 from
young gun Tommy Carberry Jr. and cruise to the fourth feature win of
his career. Butler was then overcome with emotion in victory lane as
he dedicated the win to his
“I lost my mom just 3 weeks ago,” an
emotional Butler stated, “I can’t think of a better way to honor her
than this.” Butler then explained his charge to the front, “I moved up
to the outside groove early, and the car just drove great up there,
even thru the slick spots. My crew did a great job preparing the car
all week for this.”
With a very strong wind blowing keeping
the track quite slick, Tim Tanner Jr. grabbed the lead at the start
and paced the field in the opening laps. Tanner, who had lost 2 motors
in the first 3 weeks this season already, looked strong early on and
led till lap 7 when Modified rookie Tommy Carberry Jr. to command.
Carberry Jr. began to
pull away from Tanner as Butler was on
the move and grabbed second.
By lap 13 Butler had caught Carberry Jr.
and completed what would be the winning pass. Butler checked out over
the second half of the race till about 7 to go, when Tanner got back
by Carberry Jr. and began to reel-in the leader. With the laps
clicking off Tanner was able to erase Butler’s sizeable lead but just
ran out of time at the end as he finished a close second. Carberry Jr.
added his best big-block finish to the story as he crossed the line in
third. Tommy Beamer and
Modified rookie Ryan Forte were fourth
and fifth across the line.
Racer-X himself, Dan Mazy won
the Crate-1 Sportsman 20 lap feature Saturday. Mazy had everyone
covered on this evening as he charged to the lead and never looked back.
Bobby Dmuchowski was second, followed by Harry Marlin, Gabe Fox and Bryan Papiez.
