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.

After regaining the lead on lap thirteen, Billy Osmun, III paced the Hammer
Sportsman field to the finish line to win the 20-lap feature and the 2017
point title. The opening eight tours were headed by Shaun Ratchford. Osmun,
III, who started the race in eighth, grabbed the top running position on the
ninth circuit following a restart. After another yellow flag, Cale Ross
passed Osmun, III on lap twelve. One tour later, Osmun, III returned to the
front and sped away from his rivals to grab his second victory of the
season. With Ross finishing in second, Art Liedl came home in third. Pat
Wall and Bob Lineman, Jr. completed the top five. Ross and Will Dupree won
the Hammer Sportsman qualifying events.

In the non-stop 20-lap main event for the Northeast Wingless Sprint Cars,
Ryan Godown, the 2017 champion, took the lead from Larry Drake on the third
revolution to score his tenth victory of the year. Tim Buckwalter ran a
strong race to take second. Third went to Lee Nardelli. Larry McVay was
fourth and Drake finished in fifth. Godown was the heat race winner.

In the Crate Modified feature, Ryan Simmons took the lead from Jason Dunn on
the final circuit of the time shortened 15-lap affair to register his first
win of the year. Dunn, who had been the leader since the start of the
contest, finished in the runner-up spot. Dan Fleming, Matt Stangle and Aaron
Weaver filled out the top five. Seventeenth place finisher Tommy Tanner held
on to his advantage in the point standings to secure his first division
championship. The Crate Modified heat races were captured by Rob Mancini,
Jason Dunn and JD Cranstoun.

Following a restart with two circuits remaining in the 15-lap Street Stock
race, Bill Liedtka held off a final tour challenge by Jon Meyer to win his
fourth feature of the year. The victory secured the season title for Liedtka
who had last won the championship in 2014. Meyer came home in second. Darren
Cox was third and Spider Ensinger, Sr. finished fourth. Fifth was claimed by
Jeff Dirkes.
