Jimmy Horton Has Banner Night at New
Egypt, NJ (May 22, 2010) – Jimmy Horton of Neshanic, NJ picked up his first victory of the
season at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night as he captured the 30
lap Banner Night feature event sponsored by Roma Bank. Horton, who
started 7th, grabbed the lead on lap 14 from David Van Horn and never
looked back. The victory was the 17th
at New Egypt for Horton.
“We had to come up with a new
gameplan,” stated Horton very matter of factly, “We have had a very
slow start. I think we changed everything on the car but the number.”
David Van Horn grabbed
the lead at the start of the event driving Brian Truppi’s #02 and
controlled the early part of the event chased by Ron John Koczon,
Frank Cozze Jr. and Horton. Thru the first ten laps Van Horn pulled
away at will, but then Horton began to track him down and finally on lap 14 a
turn 4 slider put him in the lead. Once in front, It was all Horton as
he pulled away with ease leaving everyone else to battle for second.
The final five laps saw Van Horn’s car start to go away as he began to
fade, as a late race charge by Keith Hoffman put him second at the
checkered. Billy Pauch, who looked like he would not crack the top
five did was he does best,
that is get the most he can get out of
what he has and still make it work as he ended up third by pure
determination. Bobby Drayton had a
great run all night long and ended up
fourth followed by Van Horn who hung on for a top five finish.
Jim Housworth won the Crate-1
Sportsman 20 lap feature, taking the lead with 3 laps to go, then
surviving a late race restart holding off Bill Martino to capture the
victory. Martino was second followed by John Micek, Dan Mazy and Kyle
In the Tobias Speedsters,
Richie Tobias won easily as he had everyone covered on this night.
The race was shortened to 16 laps when Rain hit the speeday. Former
NES hotshoe Mario Page did a great job finishing 2nd while
358-Modified standout Rick Schaffer drove home third. Tyler Potts and DJ Marci
rounded out the top five.
The Fastrak Late Models saw Mick Search
his first of the year by a slight margin. PJ Oliver finished second,
followed by Steve Davis, Tony Giglio and Alessa Young.
