Billy Pauch Reaches Milestone with 75th Career Big-Block Win at NES

New Egypt, NJ (June 6, 2009) - Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won his
75th career Big-Block Modified feature at the New Egypt Speedway
Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap Cray Electric sponsored main
event. Pauch took the lead just before halfway and was never headed
enroute to his 4th win of the season.

Young hot shoe Johnny Guarino, Jr. took command at the drop of the
green flag over Jim Robertson leading the first three laps of the
event. Dominick Buffalino, who started fifth, was on the move and
quickly grabbed the lead on lap four from Guarino and looked fast in
the early going. Buffalino lead for 7 laps until Pauch, who started
18th, burst on the scene and charged into the top spot on lap 11.
Rick Laubach was in hot pursuit at this point and quickly took over
second and the chase was on. Despite trying different grooves and
lines, Laubach had nothing for Pauch on this night as he cruised to
his second win in a row. Laubach settled for second followed by a
great run by Mike McAleer, who once again impressed by finishing
third. Frank Cozze rebounded back from a mid race spin, rim riding
all the way back around heavy traffic to finish fourth while Sam
Martz finished a solid fifth.

Todd Cray of Trenton, NJ, shined very brightly on his sponsor’s night
as he took the title of Mr. Super Stock for the second time in three
years, capturing the 25 lap title race sponsored by Cray
Electric/Cray Motorsports. Cray got to the front quickly from the
back of the pack to lead, but was run down by 2 time champ Rob
Ormsbee. His lead was short-lived as a few laps later, Cray raced
back by and took command, going on to win to the delight of his
friends and family. Ormsbee crossed the line in second but was
disqualified after failing the post race inspection. Jason Bubeck
drove a nice race to finish second, followed by George Quinlan, Billy
Bauer and Marty Derr.

John Micek held off the hard charging Jon Haegele over the final half
of the race to win a popular victory in the 20 lap Crate-1 Sportsman
feature. Haegele had to settle for second followed by Gabe Fox in
third. Bryan Kuhl finished fourth with Pat Wall in fifth. .

In the Advantage Financial/Cradle Rock Developers Rookie Sportsman
series, D.J. Ruppert won his fifth in a row, capturing the 8 lap
feature event. Ruppert defeated Brian Roemer again, who won the first
three Rookie features this season. Matt Vaillancourt brought his
entry home in third.
