NEW EGYPT, NJ – At New Egypt Speedway’s Central Paint Night, Danny Bouc blasted to his second 358 Modified feature win of the season. Mike Lyons scored the victory in the Hammer Sportsman contest. Ryan Godown took the checkered flag in the Northeast Wingless Sprint Car main event. The Crate Modified feature was taken by Tommy Tanner.
As the 30-lap feature for the 358 Modifieds began, PJ Oliver hopped to the front of the pack with John McClelland in second. Seventh place starting Danny Bouc was rapidly on the move and motored into third with two laps completed. After a caution period on the second circuit, Oliver was still in front when racing resumed with Bouc taking second from McClelland. Quickly, Bouc engaged Oliver in a battle for the lead with Bouc coming out on top on lap four. After two additional yellow flags on laps ten and eleven, Bouc was still the leader with Billy Pauch, Jr., David VanHorn, McClelland and Oliver next in line. Bouc tried to distance himself from Pauch, Jr. and the field but two red flag incidents on the fourteenth and sixteenth circuits slowed his progress. Once action returned on lap seventeen, Bouc remained in front with Pauch, Jr., McClelland and VanHorn trying to maintain the pace. On lap twenty-one, Bouc was beginning to pull away from his rivals when Oliver and Ryan Krachun, who were engaged in a spirited battle for fifth, caused the last caution of the event. On the final restart of the event, Bouc repelled a challenge from Pauch, Jr. to remain in front with VanHorn driving into third. For the remainder of the race, Bouc stayed in control to collect his second win of the 2017 season. Pauch, Jr., the current point leader, came home in second place. VanHorn’s strong run netted him third. Fourth went to McClelland and Ryan Godown finished in fifth.
PJ Oliver, Danny Bouc and Bryan Kuhl won the 358 Modified heat races.
Mike Lyons won for the second time this year after taking the checkered flag in the 20-lap Hammer Sportsman feature. Steve Desmelyk paced the opening two circuits before the sixth place starting Lyons took over. Following a caution and restart on lap thirteen, Bob Lineman, Jr. grabbed the lead from Lyons. With five laps remaining, Lyons regained the top spot after a vigorous duel with Lineman, Jr. Lyons held on to his advantage in the final tours for the win. The runner-up position was snared by JR Fulper. Cale Ross took third. Pat Wall was fourth and fifth was captured by Billy Osmun, III.
