Wade Hendrickson Flies
to Second Win at New Egypt
New Egypt, NJ (Sept.
– Wade Hendrickson of Lawrenceville,
NJ, known to his fans as “The Flying Farmer”, posted
his second win of the season at New Egypt Speedway
Saturday night as he won the 30 lap feature event on
Back-To-School night sponsored by Buhler Auto Group.
Hendrickson started 7th and wasted no time getting to
the top spot by lap seven and cruising to the victory.
At the drop of the green heat winner Dave Hunt lead
the first lap before giving way to second starter Rick
Holsten. Holsten was strong in the early going as he
showed the way till Hendrickson, who had been steadily
advancing to the front, dove under him entering turn
one for the lead on lap #7. Once in front Hendrickson
quickly showed everyone that he was the man to beat on
this night as he pulled away at will thru several
early caution flags. The first of which on lap 7 was
caused by a 4 car tangle in turn two involving
Dominick Buffalino, Jimmy Horton, Jimmy Blewett and
13-time winner Billy Pauch; all of which restarted at
the rear. At the halfway point Hendrickson found 11th
starter Sam Martz right behind him for what became the
final restart followed by John Miloszar, Holsten and
19th starting Rick Laubach. This did not phase
Hendrickson who picked up where he left off and ran
out to over a straightaway advantage over Martz. With
only 8 laps remaining Pauch, who had restarted at the
rear just 15 laps before, moved past Martz for second
and tried to find Hendrickson. However this night
belonged to Wade as he easily drove to his first ever
30 lap victory at New Egypt Speedway (his first win
was a 20 lapper). Pauch settled for a hard earned
second while Martz held off a persistent Laubach for
the third position. Laubach and John McClelland
rounded out the top five. Danny Bouc had a nice run
finishing in sixth.
Bobby Drayton beat out
David Van Horn for seventh. Drayton was piloting Van
Horn’s back-up car due to a great act of Sportsmanship
on Van Horn’s part. After a qualifying crash found
Drayton looking for a ride, David Van Horn (who is
fifth in points) gave his back up car to Drayton (who
is fourth in points) to race for the rest of the
night. Van Horn, Miloszar and Willie Osmun rounded out
the top ten.
John Micek of Flemington, NJ posted his first feature
victory of the season in the Crate-1 Sportsman 20
lapper. Micek grabbed the lead from young Jordan Cox
on lap five and then held off a late race challenge
from defending champion and current point leader Jim
Housworth to post the popular win. Housworth settled
for a strong second after starting 18th followed
by Cox, Kyle Borror and Steve Ramsey.
In the twin Fastrak Late Model 12-lap features, PJ
Oliver of Cream Ridge, NJ and Rob Ormsbee of Wall, NJ
split the two features for the third straight time.
Ormsbee took top honors in the first one beating Tony
Giglio and Skip Syester for his 11th victory this
year. Oliver then won the nightcap holding off Ormsbee
and Syester for his third win of the season.
This Monday evening, Sept. 5, it will be the second
annual John Romano Memorial Sportsman championship
event presented by Spike-N-Go. The 84-lap affair will
pay a cool $4,000 to the winner and also have lap
money paid for every lap of the feature event. Many
