Billy Pauch Two-for-Two At New Egypt

NEW EGYPT, NJ- April 14, 2014- Defending champion Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ won for the second time in as many weeks Saturday as he captured the 30 lap Modified main event at New Egypt Speedway. Pauch started 15th and charged to the front halfway through the feature in route to his 118 th win at the central Jersey speed plant.

Tim Apgar and Willie Osmun brought the field to the start with Apgar taking command. Apgar lead the first 8 laps, surviving several restarts with Osmun glued to his back bumper applying relentless pressure. Meanwhile, everyone was watching a very quick David Van Horn charge around the outside of everyone as he moved from his 12 th starting spot into third, with Pauch right behind.

The lap 8 restart proved to be a pivotal moment in the event as Osmun fired before the new turn 3 starting point causing him to be penalized 2 spots for jumping the start. Under the track’s new 2014 rule designed to keep the show moving for the fans, jumping the start will not cause a caution flag to appear, but rather the driver will be penalized the next time the event is slowed or stopped. Osmun charged into the lead recing under a 2 car penalty as Pauch quickly darted into second followed by Van Horn.

Osmun and Pauch slowly pulled away from the field as Pauch worked the outside groove around Osmun, whittling away at his lead. Each lap Pauch would appear to have made the pass, only to have Osmun shoot back by him coming off of turn 4.  Finally at halfway Pauch found enough momentum to make the pass and took control og the race. Osmun stayed within 5 car lengths of Pauch, but was still racing under the two car penalty as the race remained green.

The race went non-stop the final 22 laps with Pauch winning for the second straight week recording his 8 th career Small-Block Modified win at NES. David Van Horn made a late race charge catching and passing Osmun on the final turn to finish second. Osmun crossed the line third, however with the end of the race being the first stoppage, his two car penalty was finally enforced causing him to officially finish fifth. Ryan Godown ran a very steady race thru traffic ending in a third place finish, and Billy Pauch Jr. came home fourth.           

Tim Tanner, Jr. of Ivyland, PA won his first ever season opener in over 20 years of racing as he took top honors in the New Egypt RaceSavers 305 Sprint Car 20 lapper. Tanner started 6 th and battled thru some of the most intense racing of the evening as 8 different drivers battled for the top three spots, many times racing 3-wide as they changed up the first 8 starting spots every lap! The one constant throught all of this great racing was Jimmy Carpenter as held off every challenger for the first 14 laps. With 6 laps remaining Tanner went to the outside and completed the winning pass around Carpenter as he took the lead. Once in Front Tanner drove away, winning by almost a full straightaway. The racing behind for second remained intense until the checkered flag fell with Jimmy Carpenter holding off challenges at every turn to finish second. 11 th starting Joe Lord, 14 th starting Chuck Palmucci and Rick Stief completed the top five.

Justin Haers earns first career Super DIRTcar Series win

BARBERVILLE, FLA. - Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - There's a first time for everything. For Super DIRTcar Series driver Justin Haers, of Phelps, N.Y., that time was Wednesday night during DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment. Haers picked up his first-ever series victory in a 30-lap nail-biter at Volusia Speedway Park.

"I'm so excited. This has been a long time coming," said the Super DIRTcar Series regular of ten years. "We've been close so many times, even down here last year. It's just awesome to get a win down here. We came down here just to be competitive, and to get a win is just awesome."

Haers started his night out right, timing second-fastest overall and picking up the win in his heat, claiming the top starting spot for the 30 lap feature. The Phelps Cement Products No. 3 took the lead at the green flag over Big-Block Modified rookie Anthony Perrego.

A lap-2 caution slowed the pace early in the race with Mario Clair off-pace. Clair pulled into the pits and Haers reclaimed the lead when the field returned to green. He quickly started to pull away from the pack, leaving Dale Planck, Pete Britten and defending series champion Brett Hearn in a three-wide battle for third.

Britten charged ahead from the battle in lap 4 and pulled up beside Perrego in second. He made the pass in lap 6, and by the lap 7 "Batman" Britten was closing in on Haers in the lead. Behind them, Billy Pauch darted between teammates Matt Sheppard and Jimmy Phelps for sixth.

In lap 9, Britten swung around Haers in turn two and cruised ahead of pack. Haers learned his lesson, and, with Britten high on the outside, Haers slid past him in lap 12.

"Peter passed me for the lead. He passed me on the top and I said, man, I've got to get up there and get up on the wheel," said Haers, who garnered two podium finishes out of four races last year during DIRTcar Nationals presented by Summit Racing Equipment. "When I got up there, there was just so much more traction on the top. I was able to reel him back in, and I was able to roll him on the bottom of one and two and clear him on the back stretch."

With the rest of the race caution free, Haers was left battling lapped traffic as he pulled further away from his runners up. Perrego, who sat behind the wheel of a Big-Block Modified for the first time Tuesday during practice, fell to third mid-race, but kept his cool and deftly maneuvered lapped traffic. He closed in on Britten in lap 19 and slid to the outside to pass him in lap 20. Perrego fumbled with 5 laps to go, but recovered quickly enough not to lose his position.

"I almost spun around there. I was a little nervous," Perrego said about the incident. "We got into (turn) one there, I was just trying to keep up with the lapped cars, and I got into one a little hard."

"It was just an awesome race. I'm so excited. It's just a great way to start the season," said Haers of Wednesday's race, the 2014 debut for the Super DIRTcar Series. "Tonight we were really good and, I told my guys, 'we're going to get a gator this year, we came so close last year."

Perrego came in second, and was pleased with his first Big-Block Modified feature race finish.

"This is amazing, to come out here and finish second out of the gate," said Perrego, who successfully battled veteran racer Hearn in his heat race.

Pauch, another seasoned driver, made the right moves to finish third. In lap 27, he swerved to the outside around Planck for the position and held on for the final three laps.

"We moved up pretty good, and for my team, coming all the way down and running with these guys, that's a pretty good finish," said Pauch, who hails from Frenchtown, N.Y. "My guys worked at it hard and I think we have some notes to go from tomorrow."

Matt Sheppard, of Waterloo, N.Y., took his new Heinke-Baldwin Racing / FX Caprara Car Companies ride from its starting spot in tenth to fourth by the end of the feature race's 30 laps. Planck, of Homer N.Y., finished fifth. Rounding out the top ten are Stewart Friesen in sixth, Peter Britten in seventh, Brett Hearn in eighth, Jimmy Phelps in ninth, and Jamie Mills in tenth.

David Clark Wins Australian Championship

Queensland V8 Dirt Modified racer David Clark is the 2014 Australian V8 Dirt Modified Champion after his victory on Australia Day at the Lucas Oil Lismore Speedway.

Clark, 23, made the most of his front-row starting position for the Herne's Freight Service-backed 35-lap main event, passing top-qualifier Jai Stephenson on the opening lap, maintaining the lead position throughout the entire race. Not only was the win Clark's first Australian Championship, it also marked the first success for the Canadian-built Bicknell chassis at Australian Championship level.

"It hasn't really sunk in yet, because I know how big it is" said Clark. "I've been racing for 16 years and to finally win a National title is pretty big. We've finally cracked it!

" This weekend has been smooth, we took a few risks in the heats when we had to to make sure we got the points and were able to start up the front for the Final because anything can happen when you start down the back."

Grafton racer Jai Stephenson finished a close second, with NSW Champion Geoff Phillips coming home in third. Lismore racer Ray Eggins was the first local home in Fourth.

An unexpected shower of rain midway through the night presented competitors with challenging track conditions for the Championship decider, with Victorian driver Daniel Scott bringing on the red lights with 13 laps to run after executing a nasty roll-over along the front stretch. Scott was uninjured, although his Troyer race car sustained substantial damage.

Lismore's defending Champion Mark Robinson was forced to the infield after completing just under half race distance with a flat left-rear tyre, ironically the same fate that befell former three-time Champ Peter Britten just a handful of laps later. Robinson was mounting a serious challenge inside the top ten at the time of his withdrawal, while Britten was in second at the time of his retirement.

Former duel Australian Champ Andrew Pezzutti was also expected to challenge for the lead, however a broken shock on the opening lap eliminated his Title hopes.

Queensland Champion Kevin Britten crossed the line in fifth, narrowly holding out Toowoomba veteran Ray Klarich (6th), 2001 Australian Champion Scott Cannon (7th) and Pezzutti (8th).

The infield was littered with hard-lick stories, with Western Australian Champ Travis Kennedy forced out with differential failure, B-main winner Dallas Czerwinski retiring after losing a right-rear wheel, while the Consol Racing duo of Brandon Rawlings (ignition failure) and Mitchell Gee (steering box) were both forced out of the main event.

It was a successful night for runner-up Jai Stephenson, who was awarded the Steve Robinson Silver Fox Award at the completion of qualifying for his top-qualifying efforts. Stephenson also accumulated enough points throughout the Championship to take out the opening round of the National Five Star Dirt Series, held in conjunction with the weekends' Championship.

Industry Leaders share experience in Panel Discussions during BRP Open House

St. Catharines, Ontario – (January 22, 2014) - By Jim Irvine- Bicknell Racing Products Public Relations

A snowy day didn’t keep an overflow crowd from attending the 2014 Bicknell Racing Products Open House and the Open Panel Discussion hosted by Industry Leaders Saturday January 18th.

“It was definitely a new concept for us … but the race teams had some great questions and provided positive feedback for next year,” said (Bicknell Racing Products co-owner) Randy Williamson, “thanks again to everyone for attending and to our hosts who made the day a success.”

“It was a little different … being on the panel and answering questions instead of asking them,” admitted Billy Dunn who owns Number 1 Speed when not racing, “it was great to see the interest and I think everyone might have picked up something that will help them at the track or in the shop.”
