Bouc Captures his Third Win of the Year while Pauch Claims the 358 Modified Title at New Egypt Speedway

New Egypt, NJ (September 6, 2017) – At New Egypt Speedway’s Championship Night presented by the Flemington Family of Dealerships, Danny Bouc captured his third 358 Modified feature of the year while Billy Pauch, Jr. claimed the 358 Modified title. Billy Osmun, III won the Hammer Sportsman feature and championship. The Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event was won by the 2017 champion, Ryan Godown. Ryan Simmons scored the victory in the Crate Modified feature and Tommy Tanner took home the division championship. Bill Liedtka wrapped up the Street Stock title by winning the feature.

As the 30-lap 358 Modified feature got underway, John Pakenham motored to the lead with Bryan Kuhl and John McClelland in his tracks. McClelland was quickly on the move and slipped into the runner-up spot with three circuits completed. On the fifth lap, Billy Pauch, Jr. ascended into third and Danny Bouc climbed into fourth just before the only yellow flag of the contest waved for a multi-car tangle. When action resumed, Pakenham remained in control but Bouc raced into second with McClelland, Ryan Godown and Pauch, Jr. next in line. Quickly, Bouc began to pressure Pakenham for the lead and took command of the contest on lap seven. On the next circuit, McClelland raced into the runner-up spot with Godown advancing into third. On lap nine, Pauch, Jr. passed Pakenham to gain fourth place. By the halfway point, Bouc was still on top with McClelland closing and Godown, Pauch, Jr and David VanHorn trying to track down the leader. With ten laps to go, Bouc’s
advantage was only a quarter of a straightaway over McClelland as the top two were approaching the back end of the field. By lap twenty-seven, Bouc was beginning to lap some competitors to put some distance between him and McClelland. When the checkered flag waved, it was Bouc in front of the pack for his second consecutive feature win and his third victory of 2017.

McClelland’s strong run resulted in a second place finish. Third spot went to Godown. By completing the race in fourth, Billy Pauch, Jr. was able to secure his first 358 Modified championship at New Egypt Speedway. Fifth was taken by David VanHorn. Bouc and PJ Oliver were victorious in the 358 Modified heat races.

(Sept. 6, 2017) – Evan Hallstrom ended his rookie season strong, earning three more top fives during the final two weekends of the season to capture the Rookie of the Year Award and the runner-up position in the championship standings at Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

Two weeks ago Hallstrom and the Hallstrom Motorsports team took to the half-mile asphalt oval for the final points night of the season, which featured two 25-lap feature events.

“We made several good practice laps before the race to get the car dialed in for the night’s twin-25 races,” he said. “The car was really, really good. We only made a small adjustment before the heat races and feature events.”

In the first feature, Hallstrom scored a third-place finish.
