Pauch Jr., Bright & Spence Set To Chase East Coast Dirt Nationals Win With Hummer Motorsports
Story By: LEN SAMMONS PRODUCTIONS – TRENTON, NJ – The level of competition for the East Coast Dirt Nationals 600 Micro Sprint race increased dramatically Monday with the receipt by Indoor Auto Racing Series officials of a three car team from Hummer Motorsports.
Bob Hummer, Jr., whose Belvidere, NJ-based team has fielded cars nationally, will have Billy Pauch, Jr., Alex Bright, and Kyle Spence in the seats of his three state-of-the-art cars on February 24-25 inside CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, NJ for the two day BELFOR Property Restoration races.
The East Coast Indoor Racing Dirt Nationals will be returning after a two year Covid-19 virus gathering restrictions.
In 2020, Jon Keller, 36, left fans speechless and wanting more as he ran the alphabet soup advancing from the E-Main to win the A-Main event.
Pauch, Jr., a near winner of the 2020 race, Bright, who contended victory in the two previous East Coast Dirt Nationals, and Spence who has also been a threat in past races, will be battling for a first win and not just among one another.
Miller, who lost the lead to Kenny Keller on the final lap in 2020, has entered the race looking for redemption in 2023 driving a car owned by Lou Cicconi, Jr.
The most notable challenger might very well be Owings Mills, MD standout Stephen Snyder Jr., who won more Micro Sprint features, 13, than any other driver in 2022.
Four drivers going to post in the East Coast Indoor Racing Dirt Nationals will have raced indoors already this year.
Kyle Lick, who will be driving his father’s Micro, Tim Buckwalter will be driving the highly touted Barry Greth Micro, Tyler Lindsay will be driving the Lindsay family Micro, and Briggs Danner will be hustling a Micro owned by Dave Bodine.
Friday night presented by Turps Coates Law will feature heat races and A-Main Qualifiers for all entries, with passing points earned for each position gained. The three A-Qualifiers will pay $1,000 to win.
On Saturday night presented by Custom Built Products, the top point performers from Friday will be locked into the A-Main with the remaining competitors slotted into mains E through B with a chance to advance and lock themselves into the main event.
