||BILLY PAUCH & J&M MOTORSPORTS TEAM UP TO CHALLENGE 410 SPRINT FIELD IN THE JERSEY RUSH AT NEW EGYPT SPEEDWAY TUESDAY, AUGUST 30
It's a team that worked very well together in the past, and without a doubt, they will again be a threat on Tuesday night, August 30 when the 410 sprints invade the New Egypt Speedway for, The JERSEY RUSH.
Billy Pauch of Frenchtown, NJ and winner of one-hundred feature events at New Egypt will pilot the J&M Motorsports 410 sprint. Car owners Scott Mertz and Gene Jenkins are just thrilled about their return to New Egypt Speedway. "New Egypt was the first race track where we teamed with Billy Pauch and we won that race the first night out in 1999", commented Scott Mertz. Along with one win at New Egypt, Pauch and the J&M Motorsports Team won the Grandview King of the Hill in 2001, the Hagerstown Octoberfest in 1999 and a CRA non-wing event at Grandview. This team just clicks when they come together. "Billy is a top notch competitor no matter what he's driving", added Mertz. The J&M Motorsports Team is out of Milton, PA and they are already very busy preparing their #55 410 sprint car for their return to New Egypt Speedway.
Pauch will be shooting for the $5,000 first place prize in the 30 lap JERSEY RUSH 410 Sprint feature. He will also doing double duty as well, competing in the $3,000 to win 30 lap Big Block Modified feature that will share the headline billing for this block-buster first time event on Tuesday night, August 30 know as, The JERSEY RUSH.

The 410 Sprints and the Big Block Modifieds in a "double trouble" Twin 30 lap feature events will be the highlight.
