Pauch Picks Up
Where He Left off in New Egypt Opener
New Egypt, NJ (April 7,
2012) – Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ started off 2012 as if
it was still 2011 capturing the first event at New Egypt Speedway
Saturday night winning the 30 lap opener sponsored by C & S Equipment.
Pauch took the lead from Danny Bouc on a lap 15 restart and then
cruised to the victory.
John Stangle and first heat winner Tim
Tanner Jr. brought the 25 car field to the start with Stangle taking
the early lead. Stangle showed the way for the first 4 laps before a
hard charging Danny Bouc raced around the outside of him for the lead.
Bouc looked impressive as Billy Pauch Jr. took up the chase in
second. Pauch Jr.’s dad was also quickly moving up as he raced into
third two laps later and began to challenge his son for second. David
Van Horn and Ryan Godown now joined in and made it a spirited 4 car
battle for the second spot as Bouc raced away. Pauch and Van Horn
finally took over the second and third spots on lap 10 and took up the
chase for the lead, however Bouc had built up a half of a straightaway
advantage. As Bouc took the halfway sign and was just entering lapped
traffic the yellow flag was displayed for Mike McAleer who had spun in
turn two. On the restart Pauch wasted no time as he dove to the bottom
hard in turn one and pulled off the slider in turn two for the lead.
Once in front Pauch pulled away and took the checkered by a
comfortable margin for career win number 104. Ryan Godown got by Danny
Bouc with two laps to go to finish second, Bouc settled for third,
John McClelland raced from 14th starting spot to finish fourth and
Johnny Guarino came home fifth. Van Horn, Willie Osmun, Ron John
Koczon, Sam Martz and Stangle rounded out the top ten.
John Aumick of Highland Lakes, NJ posted his second feature
victory of the season in the Crate-1 Sportsman 20 lapper. Aumick, who
shocked everyone two weeks ago driving this same Crate car to the NES
RoC Sportsman tour event, showed that it was no fluke as he scored his
third career win. Bryan Kuhl crossed the line a close second, chased
by Jordan Henn, newcomer Eric Palmer and Steve Ramsey.
In the TriState RaceSaver 305 Sprint Series race, Brian Carber won the
20-lap main event that was slowed by only one caution. Third starter
Carber led the race from the start with sixth starting Kyle Reinhardt
charging thru traffic to catch him on lap 17. Reinhardt’s tremendous
run came to an end as he spun trying to dive under Carber for the lead
in turn three bringing out the event’s only yellow. Carber raced away
on the restart and posted his second straight tour win at NES as he
won the final event of 2011. Mike Haggenbottom raced up from 8th to
take the runnerup spot, while Jeff Schall crossed the stripe in third.
Joe Lord came home fourth followed by Jonathan Swanson in fifth. Four
heats for the 40 Sprints in the pits were won by Haggenbottom, Phil
Meisner Jr., Reinhardt and Jimmy Carpenter. The two B Mains were taken
by teammates Bill Case and Chris Allen.
In the first HCI/Spike-N-Go Rookie Sportsman race of 2012, Matt
Carman of Flemington, NJ took top honors in the non-stop 8 lap event,
besting the field of 11 Rookies. Will Trstensky finished second and
Matt’s brother Mike Carman was third.
In the twin Fastrak Late Model 12-lap features, Rob Ormsbee of Wall,
NJ and Tony Giglio of Collingswood, NJ were the winners. Ormsbee beat
Cody Dawson and PJ Oliver in the first one, while Giglio bested Oliver
and Ormsbee in the second.
Next Saturday Apr. 14th it will be Cray Motorsports night at New Egypt
Speedway. Modifieds will headline the show joined by the Sportsman,
the HCI/SpikenGo Rookies and the Outlaw Stocks. There will also be a
NEETS small car enduro at the end of the show. Racing gets underway at
6pm, with gates opening at 4pm. For more information, call the
