BILLY PAUCH FINALLY NOTCHES 100TH WIN AT EAST WINDSOR SPEEDWAY FRIDAY NIGHT
EAST WINDSOR, N.J. ~ Billy Pauch of Frenchtown reached a milestone Friday
night as he won his 100th Modified stock car main event on the famous
half-mile clay oval. It was the popular veteran's second straight win of the
Mike McAleer of Browns Mills jumped to the front at the outset while
Pauch rocketed to the front from his 11th starting slot. Pauch took command
on the sixth lap and was off to the races. Kenny Brightbill of Sinking
Spring, Pa. moved in to challenge soon after, before Doug Hoffman of
Allentown, Pa. wrestled away second on the 14th lap. Hoffman then chased
Pauch the rest of the way, while Brightbill spun from contention on the 16th
Pauch and Hoffman were followed by McAleer, Ryan Watt of Phoenixville,
Pa. and Brightbill at the checker flag.
Al Cheney of Cranbury raced from 12th on the grid to win the companion
15-lap feature race for the Street Stocks. Cheney was the leader by the
halfway mark and then dealt with eventual second place finisher Rob Ormsbee
all the way to the finish. Billy Bauer of Flemington was third, while Paul
Marra, Jr. of Bordentown and Monmouth Junction's Art Bifulco were fourth and
Ryan Godown of Ringoes may have been taking his first ever ride in a
borrowed racecar, but that didn't faze him a bit as he raced to victory in
the Sportsman 20-lapper. Godown and the Rob Shuster No. 20 broke into the
lead on the fifth lap and were never headed. **** Robbins of Toms River was
second, while Rick Holsten of Dayton, Hurffville's Richie Pratt, Jr. and John
Romano of Englishtown were third through fifth.
Future racers were also in the spotlight Friday night as they raced down
the front stretch in the "Annual Kids' Big Wheel Races." While all youngsters
were awarded prizes, John Riley of Bordentown was the two to four year old
winner, Eric DeYoung of Old Bridge was tops in the five to seven year old
class and Mark Devos of Langhorne, Pa. won the nine year old class.
The East Windsor Speedway returns to action this Friday evening (July 20)
with the Modifieds in the spotlight in "Fan Favorite" twin 20-lap main
events. Sportsman racers have a 20-lapper planned, while the Street Stocks
will battle in a 15-lapper. Big Block Modified entries should note that they
are now allowed to run big dirt track tires as long as they are Hoosier Tires
and they can also use aerodynamic "sail panels" as long as they are no higher
than the highest peak of the roof. Big Block Modifieds must weight at least
Friday night's races begin at 7:30 p.m.
