Wow that video brings back memories! It was the best and most memorable race I've ever attended in person.
I was in the covered grandstand, sitting around some very upset Tour mod fans from New England. I think they felt like their favorite Tour pros were upset by a dirt driver nicknamed after a wild west outlaw. Perhaps they felt like he had a hometrack advantage. Yes, it was a place where Pauch had been dominant, but never on the pavement. In the one year he ran there full time ('91), I think he won 4 features, in a different division - the DIRT/asphalt mods.
By and large though the fans were ecstatic. Billy Pauch WON the ROC at Flemington on asphalt coming from 43rd!
