Pauch Wins Career #65 in New Egypt Dual Track Event
New Egypt, NJ (April 19, 2008) - Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ had
all the answers on Saturday night as he captured the 65th win of his
career at the New Egypt Speedway in the 2008 season opener. The 30
lap event, which was the second race of the new "NJ Dual Track
Series," saw Pauch beat a field that boasted the best that both New
Egypt and Bridgeport Speedways had to offer.
"This is a great deal," stated Pauch in victory lane, "The fans get
to see their favorite drivers all together 8 times during the season.
It feels great winning the second leg of the series."
Pauch started on the outside pole by the luck of the draw and went
wire to wire for the victory, which saw Mike Isles finish second in
as many races in the series giving him the point lead. Keith Hoffman,
who was fast during the early stages of the race, settled for third.
Billy Pauch Jr. came from his tenth starting spot to finish a fine
fourth and Wade Hendrickson had a nice run coming up from the middle
of the pack to grab fifth.
Willie Osmun of Bloomsbury, NJ picked up right where he left off in
2007. The defending champ charged to the front quickly and then held
off a late race challenge from young hotshoe Clay Butler to claim the
victory in the 20 lap A1 Racing Products Sportsman feature. John
McClelland grabbed second in the final laps with Butler coming home
Todd Cray claimed his fifth career feature win in the 15 lap Super
Stock feature event. In the 2008 opener of the Advantage
Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman series, Gabe Fox, a
crew member for Modified standout Tim Tanner, Jr. won the 8 lap
Ed Hughes jumped behind the wheel of the Miscoski Racing SS Sprint
for the first time and took it to victory lane. Race long leader John
Romano finished in the runnerup slot. The 15 lap Outlaw Stock Feature
