Billy Pauch Adds Another
Milestone to Resume, Wins 100th at New Egypt
New Egypt, NJ (Aug 6, 2011)
– Billy Pauch
of Frenchtown, NJ has reached yet another milestone in
his storied career by winning the 100th Big-Block
Modified feature victory of his career at New Egypt
Speedway Saturday night sponsored by Perone’s Auto
Service and Salvage. In an event that only had one
caution flag slow the action on lap #3, Pauch started
eighteenth and was as dominate as ever chasing down
Richie Pratt Jr. from over a straightaway back in the
final half of the event. Pauch finally got by Pratt
with just over a lap remaining and raced home to a
popular victory to the fans who were on hand to watch
history being made.
“This win is really special to me.” stated an
exuberant yet relieved Pauch. “This track is like
Flemington was for us, they do a great job here making
the surface racey and you can actually come from the
back to win. There is always 3 and 4 wide racing and
you need to be on top of your game each week to race
here. So I am very proud of our team for this
Third starting Richie Pratt
Jr. grabbed the lead on the opening lap and looked to
be very fast early as he opened up a good size lead
when the first yellow waved on lap three. He then
picked up where he left off as he charged out front
and pulled away from the field over the next 10 laps.
Pauch, who was 12th on the restart, pulled into the
top five by lap 7 and went to work on the
frontrunners. As the halfway signal was displayed
Pauch pulled into second spot only to find that leader
Pratt was long gone and off the radar! With
Pratt flying out front over a straightaway in the
lead, Pauch went to work and slowly began chipping
away at the lead. But with 7 laps to go Pauch was
still about ¾ of a straightaway back and time seemed
to not be on his side. That is when heavy lapped
traffic appeared in front of Pratt. Pauch ran him down
in jut three laps and the two put on an excellent show
for the fans with lapped cars all around. As the white
flag was displayed Pauch got by Pratt in turn four and
never looked back on his way to the historic 100th
career win at NES. Pratt settled for second, while Ron
John Koczon raced home third, fourth was Tad Cox and
two-time winner Gary Butler rounded out the top five.
Doug Urbano of Hillsborough, NJ took home his first
feature victory of his career in the Crate-1 Sportsman
20 lapper. Urbano got to the front quickly and then
held off several challengers to record the victory.
Jordan Henn drove a fine race to finish second,
defending champ Jim Housworth raced home third
followed by Steve Hicks and Chuck Buchman.
In the TriState RaceSaver 305 Sprint Series race,
Jahnny Wyers of Mamora, NJ. won the 20-lap event.
Chris Allen Jr., the current point leader was second,
Brian Carber was third in his first ever visit to the
speedway, while Kyle Reinhardt and Joe Lord completed
the top five.
In the twin Fastrak Late Model 12-lap features, Tony
Giglio of Collingswood, NJ and Darin Henderson of
Pasadena, MD were the winners. Giglio beat Henderson
and Skip Syester in the first one, while Henderson
bested Rob Ormsbee and Syester.
Aug. 13th it will be Summer Slam at New Egypt
Speedway. Sportsman will get their chance to headline
as they are joined by the Outlaw Stocks, Fastrak Late
Models, and Crate-1 Sportsman will join in to complete
the racing card. There will also be an Enduro and a
