Tops New Egypt Mods, URC Main to J.J. Grasso
New Egypt, NJ (April 26, 2008) – Billy
Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ made it two in a row Saturday night as he
captured the 30 lap Modified feature event at New Egypt Speedway.
Pauch grabbed the lead just before halfway from Frank Cozze and went
on to record his 66th career win at NES on CMX Engineering Night.
"I want to thank all of my sponsors for their support,"
stated Pauch in victory lane, "I am glad to be back at New Egypt
in 2008 & I could not do it without them."
Brian Godown led the event early before giving way to a very fast
Cozze. Cozze appeared that he might be the man to beat until Pauch
drove up to challenge him for the top spot on lap 10. Cozze tried
valiantly to hold Pauch back,but it was to no avail as Pauch just had
too much for everyone on this night. Pauch picked up the top prize as
he cruised home 6 car lengths ahead of Cozze, who settled for the
runner-up spot. John Keller had one of his best finishes ever at New
Egypt crossing the line in third, followed closely by a very fast Tad
Cox. Keith Hoffman drove hard the entire event to place fifth after
starting in 18th starting spot.
J.J. Grasso of Pedricktown, NJ claimed only the second win of his
young career in the Rislone URC Sprint Series 25 lap feature event.
Both of Grasso’s wins have come here at New Egypt Speedway as he won
his first career feature back in September of last year. Grasso
started on the outside of the front row, and after chasing early
leader Tim Hogue for several laps, Grasso made what proved to be his
move and never looked back. Davey Sammons posted his best ever finish
at NES finishing a strong second. Becca Anderson charged home
third ahead of Brian Seidel and Chris Coyle.
the Sportsman division John Romano Jr. of Cream Ridge, NJ won his
fifth career feature event, holding off a persistent Rocco Infante.
19th starter Ray Woodall impressed everyone as he came through
traffic to finish third, followed by last week’s winner Willie Osmun
and Tommy Carberry Jr.
Billy Bauer of Flemington, NJ won the 21st feature event of his
career in the 20 lap Super Stock feature. Bauer, the track’s
leading feature winner in the Super Stock division, had to withstand
a strong challenge from last week’s winner Todd Cray. Cray settled
for second, followed by Rob Ormsbee who came back in and finished
3rd. Bill Leidtka finished fourth, with Steve Davis rounding out
In the second race of the
Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers
Rookie Sportsman series, Rob Stump won his first event when Chris
Allen Jr. came up light on the scale. Bobby Sandt Jr., finished in
second followed by last week’s winner Gabe Fox.
