Danny Bouc Breaks Drought at New Egypt Speedway Will Dupree Captures John Romano Memorial Sportsman 30 

(Aug. 24, 2019):  Danny Bouc of Plumsteadville, PA broke his win drought Saturday night by taking his first Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season at New Egypt Speedway. Bouc took command on a lap 4 restart and never looked back as he posted his 11th career win at NES.       


“It’s been a tough season and it is good to finally breakthrough,” exclaimed Bouc in victory lane, “I have a great crew and they changed a lot of things on this car and it was great tonight!” 


Pat Wall took command at the start of the 30 lap affair over PJ Oliver, Kevin Vaclavicek and Bouc.  Wall was strong in the opening laps until the yellow came out on lap 4 for Jim Martin who got into the turn four fence.  The restart was the turning point of the event as Bouc used the cushion to charge around the outside into second in turns 1-2, then flew by leader Wall in thurn 3 & 4 to be recorded the leader of lap 5. Bouc immediately opened up a half straightaway lead and as the race now stayed green he continued to set a fast pace as PJ Oliver gave chase. Just after halfway Bouc hit lapped traffic but he didn’t let this slow him down as he masterfully sliced his way thru it maintaining his advantage. With 6 laps to go the caution appeared for only the second time as Vaclavicek slammed the first turn fence and came to a stop. Bouc didn’t let this phase him as he powered away on the restart, and all eyes turned to point leader Billy Pauch Jr. who had only advanced to 7th before the caution. The 2017 champion grabbed fifth on the restart and then split the next two cars in close quarters in turn three to claim third. A lap later he was second and began to close in on Bouc who was more than half-straightaway in front. At the checkered Pauch got within 6 car lengths and settled for hard earned second, clinching his second NES Modified title a week early.  Mike Butler turned in another solid performance for third, Oliver held on for fourth and Brandon Grosso fought back late to complete the top five. 


Will Dupree of Somerset, NJ held off challenges from 5 different drivers to win his third event of 2019 in the John Romano Memorial 30 for the Hammer Sportsman. Three-time champ Bob Lineman Jr. led the early going and appeared poised to make the race a laugher as he ran away and hid, until his car broke at about the halfway point coasting to a stop. He was pushed into the pits ending his night.  Dupree inherited the lead and held off challenges from every top runner, sometimes 2 and three at once. But he was up to every challenge and went on to win a race very close to his heart, that honored his longtime friend and competitor John Romano Jr. Steve Davis took the point lead back by finishing second, John Criscione ran a smooth race coming home third, followed by Art Liedl and Ryan Heim. 


The Crate Modifieds 20 lap feature was won by Johnny Bangs for the second time this season. Bangs took the led before halfway from early race leader Andy Walko and never looked back. Dan Fleming bounced back from the big wreck two weeks ago to finish second as Ryan Heim posted his second top five of the night in third. The other two drivers involved in that big crash two weeks ago, Jeremy Martino and Robby Dunn, also bounced back in a big way to round out the top five.  


Billy Liedtka scored his sixth win and 32nd of his career in the 15 lap Street Stock victory. Liedtka held off a fast Brian Spencer for the popular victory. Todd Dige was third across the line coming back from an early race incident.     


Next Saturday, Sept. 14th will be Flemington Car & Truck Country First Responders/Modified Championship Night. All first responders w/ID will receive FREE General admission & there will be a parade of Emergency response vehicles at Intermission.  Pit Gates open at 3pm, Grandstand Main gates will open at 4pm, Hot laps on track at 5pm, and Racing begins at 6pm.

Former Champs Pauch Jr. & VanHorn Split Twin 20’s at New Egypt Speedway

(Aug. 31, 2019):  2017 track champion Billy Pauch Jr. of , Frenchtown, NJ won his fifth Vahlco Wheels Modified feature event of the season in the first feature, and 2018 track champ David VanHorn of Harmony, NJ took his fourth win of the season in the nightcap at New Egypt Speedway on Saturday night. For Pauch Jr. it was career win number 26, tying him for 4th on the all-time Modified win list with Keith Hoffman and Frank Cozze.  VanHorn’s tenth career victory came in one of the most exciting feature events in track history, as he bested Mike Butler and Brandon Grosso in a torrid three car battle for the win.  

In the first event, heat race winner TJ Lilly grabbed the initial lead ahead of PJ Oliver, Rich Rutski and Cale Ross. Lilly looked strong in the early going as Rutski took over the runner-up position. Rutski was persistent and finally wrestled the lead away from Lilly on lap 9, but this was short lived as PJ Oliver roared back to life and raced from 4th to the lead on a restart to lead at the halfway mark. Oliver began to stretch his lead as fifth starting Kevin Vaclavicek raced into second and 13th starting Billy Pauch Jr. was now third.  Pauch Jr. wasted no time as he quickly charged into second and reeled in the leader. Lap 13 saw Pauch Jr. grab the lead before the caution flew for a tangle between top five runners Danny Bouc and Vaclavicek. The restart saw Pauch Jr. pull away with ease as he cruised to his third Modified victory this week. Ryan Krachun drove from his 9th starting spot to finish a very solid second, besting David VanHorn, Brandon Grosso and Rutski, who completed the top five. In victory lane, Pauch Jr chose the child holding the inversion number 11, meaning that the top 11 finishers would be inverted for the start of the second Twin 20.  

 Billy Osmun and Danny Bouc made up the front row for the second feature with Bouc racing out to the lead. Bouc quickly opened up a lead with the rest of the pack virtually on his heels racing 2, 3, and twice 4 wide for the top 12 positions in a wild and crowd pleasing battle. With positions changing radically on each passing lap in the top ten Bouc continued to lead each lap. Finally on lap 9 ground swell behind Bouc caught up to the leader as Mike Butler and three other cars passed him on both sides. Two-time winner Butler now had the lead at the halfway sign, but the pressure was relentless from behind as VanHorn and Brandon Grosso raced side by side on his back bumper. The following lap this duo caught the cushion riding Butler and brought the crowd to their feet as they raced under Butler to make it three-wide for the lead. Unknown to the crowd, they would stay on their feet for the remaining last half of the race, as VanHorn & Grosso would not give each other an inch, racing side by side around the speedway lap after lap, and pulling up under Butler to make it 3-abreast in every corner of the speedway. On lap 16 VanHorn showed that his relentless pounding on the bottom groove was paying off as he finally got the bite he was looking for off turn 2 and nosed ahead into turn three. Just as DVH grabbed the lead he got into a little fluid on the bottom of turn four forcing the car to push up the speedway as if he was diving into the pits directly in front of the leaders. VanHorn made an incredible save on the far outside of the track as Butler shot by with Grosso in tow. VanHorn had not only saved it, but was right on the back bumper of the leader down the frontstretch and tried to swing back under Butler, however Grosso was right there as well with the two making hard contact but immediately recovering and both picking up the chase once again. In one lap it was back to the three-wide battle again and as the white flag flew VanHorn grabbed the lead on the low side of turn 4. The final lap saw Butler and Grosso battling for second as VanHorn went on to capture the exciting 20 lap event. Butler came home second, Grosso third, followed by Billy Pauch Jr. and Cale Ross. 

Steve Davis of Jackson, NJ was victorious in the Hammer Sportsman 20 lap feature event. Early race leader and new point leader Jim Housworth came home second.  John Criscione, David Burns and last week’s winner Ryan Heim rounded out the top five.
