Pauch is the Master at New Egypt, Wins 2nd Straight

New Egypt, NJ (April 14, 2012)
– Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won his second straight feature of the 2012 season at New Egypt Speedway Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap Modified feature event sponsored by Cray Motorsports. Just like last week Pauch took the lead just after halfway and cruised to his 105th career feature win at the track, beating his son by 5 car lengths.

“My son has a good team this year (Petruska Motorsports) and is very tough, but a lot of these young guys are tough” stated Pauch in victory lane, “With young guys like Danny Bouc, Dave Hunt and Tommy Carberry out there, I think it is tougher to win here than last year!”

Mike McAleer and Tommy Carberry Jr. brought the 25 car field to the start with McAleer getting command. McAleer looked to be the class of the field over the first 10 laps as he ran away and hid from the rest of the field. However that all came to an end under yellow on lap 10 when McAleer suddenly retired from the event with mechanical problems while leading, giving the top spot to Carberry Jr. Carberry didn’t disappoint as he raced away on the restart while Pauch and his son Billy Pauch Jr. moved up into second and third respectfully. One lap past halfway, Pauch beat Carberry into turn 3 and took the lead for good. Meanwhile Pauch Jr. quickly grabbed second and was able to keep pace with dad over the final 10 laps of the event, but unable to get closer than 3 car lengths. For Pauch Jr. it was his best finish of the season at NES as he continues to get better every week. Ryan Godown, who seemed to struggle during the first half of the race came on strong in the final half to post a popular third. Gary Butler crossed the line in the fourth position and DVH David Van Horn rounded out the top five.

Rocco Infante of Robbinsville, NJ won his first feature event of 2012 at New Egypt. The three time defending Sportsman champion wrestled the lead away from leader Gene Stravinsky with just three laps remaining to claim the win. Stravinsky settled for second, while young DJ Ruppert continues to impress as he finished third. Newcomer Chris Lane was fourth and Mike Howardson was impressive coming home fifth.

John Carpenter of Howell, NJ won the 20 lap Outlaw Stock feature for his first win of 2012. Carpenter held off a persistent Jarrod Burdge for the win. Dan Collamer was third, followed by Gary Klimeczak and Ron Freese.

Next Saturday night, April 21, New Egypt Speedway presents Little League Night sponsored by Ocean Medical. The racing will feature a full card of Big-Block Modifieds, Crate-1 Sportsman, FASTRAK Late Models, Tri-State Race Savers 305 Sprint Cars and Rookie Sportsman.
