New Egypt May 12 Modified Feature Finish Results in Pauch Disqualification

New Egypt, NJ (May 14, 2012) – Billy Pauch was the first driver across the finish line in the regularly scheduled 30-lap main event last Saturday night. The record books will still state that Pauch was the winner of the event however, the Frenchtown, NJ driver has been penalized to a last place finish for an NES rulebook violation in the “Ballast Weight” section.

Pauch will receive last place points and last place money, but will retain the win. The drivers finishing second on back will receive their earnings for the places they finished in. The remaining $2,325 of Pauch’s winnings will be divided evenly to the winner’s of the Twin 20s that will be held on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26. A traditional 20-lap feature pays $1,500.  The winner of each of the 20-lap event will now pay $2,662.


Bouc Wins Career First, Pauch Back in Victory Lane at NES

New Egypt, NJ (May 12, 2012)
– Danny Bouc of Pipersville, NJ & Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ were Modified feature winners at New Egypt Speedway Saturday night in the Mother’s Day events sponsored by K & A Excavating. Bouc won his career first in the make up 20 lap feature held over from April 28th. In the regularly scheduled 30 lap event, Pauch broke his string of bad luck by getting to the front quickly and holding off several challenges for his 106th career win at the speedway.

“Finally I have won a regular feature event, exclaimed a very happy Bouc in victory lane, “I won all those Rookie features (8 in 2007) when I was champion, but I always wanted to win a regular feature and now I have done it in a Big-Block (Modified).”

Bouc started fifth in the rained out 20 lap event and wasted no time getting to the front grabbing the lead from Tommy Farrell on lap 3. By lap five Dominick Buffalino and Tim Tanner Jr. were hot on Bouc’s trail and chasing the leader but Bouc continued to set a torrid pace. Pauch, who started 14th was up to 8th on lap 14 when he broke the birdcage in the rear and retired from the race. Tanner ran hard after Bouc but to no avail, as Bouc just had too much for everyone and cruised to his first ever Modified win in his Modified rookie season. Tanner settled for a hard earned second with David Van Horn crossing the line third. Tad Cox continued to be fast and posted his second straight top five finish in fourth and Sammy Piazza had his best finish at NES so far finishing in fifth.

In the regular 30 lap feature, Billy Pauch lined up fifth due to his two DNF’s in his last three races.  Pauch took full advantage of this as he quickly marched to second by lap four.  However, second is where he would stay as Mike McAleer was flying high and pulling away from the field at will. McAleer led by over half of a straightaway in lapped traffic when his car suddenly slowed on lap 11 and pulled into the infield with mechanical woes, done for the evening. Pauch assumed command and led John Stangle, Mike Iles and his son Billy Pauch Jr. At this point all eyes now turned to last week’s winner Ron John Koczon as he charged thru the field. Koczon had started 17th, and moved into the top five at halfway, and by lap 19 he was in 2nd and chasing the leader. Several restarts then ensued over the next few laps and 18th starter and current point leader Ryan Godown joined the battle on lap 21. Koczon was beginning to challenge Pauch when the final yellow flew on lap 24, setting up a six lap dash. These six laps found Godown and Koczon really battling it out for the second spot, allowing Pauch to slowly pull away. At the checkered it was Pauch winning by 1.5 seconds. Godown pulled off a pass on the final turn to beat Koczon out of the runner up spot by half of a car length. Koczon settled for third, followed by David Van Horn and Dominick Buffalino. Following the event a protest for an alleged technical violation on Billy Pauch’s #1 was logged with track officials. As of press time there was no further information available with regards to this situation.

Brain Roemer of Flemington, NJ won his first ever feature event at New Egypt in the Sportsman 20 lap feature. Roemer withstood numerous yellow flags to post the impressive win. DJ Ruppert came home second followed by Jim Housworth, Mike Hendershot and Clay Butler.

Bill Liedtka of New Egypt, NJ won the 20 lap Outlaw Stock feature for his first win ever as well, keeping the theme of first time career winners going. Liedtka led early, then passed Doug Debray back with 9 laps to go and drove to victory. Dan Collamer got to second on the final lap but ran out of time to pressure Liedtka. Brian Ludwig was third followed by Jarrod Burdge and Ron Freese.

The HCI/SpikeNGO Rookie Sportsman feature event was won tonight by Marty Saxton. It was Saxton’s first win too. Jesse Dill came home second, with Kimee Ling finishing third.
