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