Pauch Collects 7th Win, Godown Locks Up His Second Championship at New Egypt Speedway
New Egypt, NJ (September 6, 2014) – Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won his 7th feature of the season Saturday night as he captured the 30 lap Modified feature at New Egypt Speedway on First Responders night. On a night when the start was delayed by several thunderstorms in a row that passed close to the speedway, Pauch took full advantge of the opportunity to race by sweeping his qualifying heat and the main event in dominating fashion. Ryan Godown settled for second in this event, but took home his second NES Modified championship in 3 years.
DJ Ruppert led PJ Oliver at the start of the event as Pauch immediately charged up from his 7th starting spot into 4th. Pauch was third the next time around and two laps later was the runnerup to Ruppert. It took him only one more lap to charge under Ruppert for the lead by lap 5. Numerous caution flag periods slowed the next 10 laps with Pauch easily powering away every time. Over the final 10 laps, Jimmy Blewett moved into second, and then Godown, but no one had anything for the powerful Pauch as he cruised to his 123rd career win at New Egypt. Godown came home second locking up the 2014 track title. Blewett finished third, Gary Butler 4th and Billy Pauch Jr. completed the top five.
Jeff Geiges of Hamilton, NJ won his first feature of the season in the 20 lap NERS 305 Sprint feature. Geiges led all 20 laps holding off 4 time winner Mike Haggenbottom for the victory. Phil Meisner, Jr. finished third ahead of Adam Carberry and Dave Brown, Jr.
The Sportman 20 lap non-stop feature event saw Mike Hendershot win for the third time this season. Hendershot ran away and hid from the competition during the course of the event as he won by almost a full straightaway. Mike Howardson finished second, Alan Bleacher finished third trailed by Johnny Cornell and Art Leidl.
