PAUCH CONTINUES WINNING WAYS; NOTCHES NUMBER NINETY EIGHT
by Bill Baumann

New Egypt, NJ (July 9, 2011) When your hot your hot and there is no hotter driver on the dirt modified circuit at this time than Frenchtown's Billy Pauch. The four time champion once again showed his strength as he won the thirty lap feature sponsored by Jaspar Transmissions.

The win was his ninth of the season and aided his already healthy points lead as he looks to become not only the first ever driver at the speedway to win one hundred features, but the first to record five titles.

Stan Frankenfield and Tommy Farrell III lead a strong field of twenty eight into action with Frankenfield holding the upper hand. The red flag flew with the completion of lap two for a horrendous front stretch crash.

The incident started when there was a slight bobble by one of the drivers running near the front of the field. The chain reaction which ensued saw Jimmy Horton flip down the frontstretch ending up not only on his roof, but on the rear deck lid of Willie Osmun's #14.

The crash also saw heavy front end damage on Sam Martz's #3 and Bob Drayton's #09. Richie Pratt Jr. and Jimmy Blewett were also involved as was the Mike Mamanna #71M.

Out of all those drivers involved, only Drayton was taken to the local medical center as he was complaining of a slight headache. He would be released from the center later that evening and other than a few bruises was unscathed.

Frankenfield continued to hold the upper hand as the race restarted with Farrell still very much in pursuit. The former pavement driver finally made his move into the number one spot on lap five behind the wheel of the Reid's Sod farm #54.

Beginning to show his hand, Pauch finally cracked the top five on lap nine and was quickly challenging Gary Butler for third by lap ten. He accomplished that fete on lap fifteen and then disposed of Wade Hendrickson in second on lap eighteen.

Farrell tried his best to keep the K & A Excavating #1 in check but to no avail as he zipped into the lead on lap twenty. Once out front is was all but over as Pauch captured his ninth win of the year. Defending track champion Rick Laubach had a solid outing coming home second with Butler, Hendrickson, and Mike McAlear rounding out the top five.

In Crate 1 action it was Kyle Borror who took the lead on lap eleven and held off the stiff challenges of Jim Housworth to win his first feature of the season. Glenn Knell came across the line in third followed by current points leader Bryan Kuhl and Steve Hicks.  Harry Marlin actually crossed the line in fifth, but failed the post race inspection.

Veteran Bruce Kindberg drove to victory in the TSRS Sprint twenty lap main event which went none stop. Kindberg lead the event from start to finish with Kyle Reinhardt second and defending champ Jeff Geigis third.


Rob Ormsbee recorded his ninth win of the year and Tony Giglio his second in Fastrak late model action.
