New Egypt, NJ (July 26, 2014) – Six-time champion Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won the 30 lap Modified main event at New Egypt Speedway Saturday on National Parts Supply Bike Night. Pauch raced to the front by lap 7 and then cruised to his sixth victory of the season. Sammy Piazza tried to stay close but lost ground in lapped traffic finishing about half of a straightaway behind the winner.
“I want to dedicate this win to Paul Kuhl,” stated Pauch after the race, “He was very important to my success at Flemington and a good friend, he will be missed.”
PJ Oliver grabbed the lead at the start and led the first lap before Sammy Piazza got by him. Piazza looked strong as Pauch made his way up to second from his 7th starting spot. By lap six Pauch was trying to duck under Piazza in the corners and on lap seven he got the bite he was looking for and took over first place. Once in front Pauch cruised with Piazza and now Tad Cox in hot pursuit. Jimmy Blewett battled with Billy Pauch Jr. for a top five spot, as Ryan Godown began to make his presence known. The trio battled hard over the final 10 laps but could not run down the leaders. At the finish, Pauch was about half of a straightaway out in front of Piazza, who held off Cox for the runner-up spot. Cox was third followed by Blewett and Godown.
Thank you again for everything!
