Gary Butler Honors Mom's
Again at New Egypt
New Egypt, NJ (May 7, 2011)
– Gary Butler of Phillipsburg, NJ captured his
first feature of the season and 5th of his career at New
Egypt Speedway Saturday night as he won the 30 lap
Modified event sponsored by Infante Sod Farm. Butler,
whose last win came one year ago tonight, won on Mother's
Day weekend for the second straight year.
my mom 3 weeks before last years race and I was so happy
to be able to win that one”, stated an emotional Butler,
“To be able to repeat it again this year is beyond words.
This win is dedicated to her.”
John Stangle brought
the 28 car field to the start and set the pace for the
first two laps ahead of Mike McAleer and Tommy Farrell
III. David Van Horn was really flying as he raced from his
seventh starting spot into the lead before the completion
of lap 3. Once in front, Van Horn pulled away at will
while 8th starter Butler also moved to the front, getting
by Stangle for second on lap 13. Butler raced hard but was
never close as Van Horn led by more than a straightaway
throughout the second half of the event. That is, until
the yellow was displayed for a Willie Osmun flat tire with
just 4 laps to go. The restart saw Butler, 14th starter
Jimmy Horton, 15th starter Billy Pauch and 18th starter
Richie Pratt, Jr. all lined up on Van Horn’s bumper. As
the green flag flew Butler had renewed life and he took
full advantage of it as he pulled off the slide job in
turn four to lead lap #27 over Van Horn, whose car looked
to have tightened up. Pauch then quickly got by Van Horn
and glued himself to Butler’s rear bumper for a last lap
assault. But as hard as Pauch tried, Butler had him
covered on this night as he raced to the checkered flag
first by a car length. Point leader Pauch raced home
second while Van Horn had to settle for third. Horton
completed another strong run in fourth and Rick Laubach
edged Pratt for fifth at the line.
John Aumick of
Highland Lakes, NJ captured the first feature victory of
his career in the Crate-1 Sportsman 20 lapper. Aumick took
the lead with 8 laps remaining and then withstood a strong
challenge from 2009 Crate Champ Jon Haegele to take the
win. Harry Marlin bounced back after a slow start to
finish second on his sponsors night. Dan Mazy, early
leader Kyle Borror and defending champ Jim Houseworth
rounded out the top five.
In the TriState RaceSaver
305 Sprint Series race, John Wyers of Mamora, NJ won the
20-lap. Dan Massey crossed the line second, but was
disqualified when his car came up light on the scale
following the event. Opening night winner Chuck Palmucci
finished second, followed by Jeff Geiges, Chris Allen Jr.,
and Phil Meisner Jr. Former two-time champion Rob Ormsbee
of Wall, NJ picked up where he left of last month as he
won the first 12-lap Fastrak Late Model feature event.
Ormsbee bested Mario Page and Steve Davis for the checker.
Davis bounced back and won the second one, over Ormsbee
In the Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock
Developers Rookie Sportsman series, Jordan Cox won his
second 8 lap feature event in three tries. Jeremy Martino
was second and Mike Everett was third.
