    Gamble's problems left Michael Stalnaker and Augie Burttram in front, and those two spent most of the rest of the race trading paint, position, and probably a few choice words and gestures as well.  Both drivers dominated the race, and while Burttram maintained the upper hand early, Stalnaker managed to swipe the lead later on.  Meanwhile a string of cautions for this and that behind them only added to their frustrations with each other, and their battle finally ended when Michael Stalnaker spun on the front stretch and wound up on the rear of the field.

    It was all Augie Burttram from that point as he cruised to a victory, followed by Eddie Lentz for the second spot.  Sean Babcock placed third and Brian Shea wound up fourth, with Jerrid Bennett overcoming all sorts of misfortunes to take the fifth position at the checkers.

    ocala-rew_5119_.jpgA strong field of late models took the green with Shane Williams leading the way, but Keith Nosbisch had the car to beat on the night.  Nosbisch drove the 101 machine out front and dominated the race while everyone else battled for position behind him, including Ivedent Lloyd Jr.  Lloyd started in the 5th position and picked his way up to the second spot by lap 8, then began stalking Keith Nosbisch lap after lap.

    Despite the best efforts of the hometown favorite, Ivedent Lloyd, it looked as if Keith Nosbisch was simply too tough to tame.  Lloyd made several attempts to pass, but each time was rebuffed by the race leader.  But in the final laps as the two frontrunners began lapping some stragglers, both cars ended up nose to tail with traffic, and on the white flag lap Ivedent Lloyd used a slower car as a sort of rolling pick to steal the lead from Nosbisch and win the race.  Mark Whitener also managed to sneak past the 101 car and grab the second spot as Keith Nosbisch settled for third.  Joe Kump and Christian Augspurger rounded out the top five.

    The Gladiators were the final division to race and inherited a dry-slick track from the late models.  Casey Feaster pounced on pole sitter Ann Moon at the start and grabbed the lead, as a determined Tony LaPorta fell in behind him.  Feaster and LaPorta had quite a battle, albeit a civil one with next to no pushing and shoving, as LaPorta tried continually to make his way around the 20 car.  ocala-rew_5144_.jpgBut Feaster's Ford focus proved to be more than LaPorta could manage and Casey Feaster placed himself as the division points leader with a win.  LaPorta earned second place, followed by the 55 of Devin Walker in the third spot.  Troy Sullivan and Steve Johnson were fourth and fifth, respectively.

    Next Friday night Ocala Speedway presents a special event, featuring action from the Top Gun Sprint Car Series.  The Top Guns feature a competitive field of top 360 sprint cars and are respected as the top dirt sprint car touring series in the region.  In addition to the sprint cars, fans will also be treated to action from Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, The Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks, and the Mini Stocks.  Visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com for more details, or call the speedway at 352-622-9400.
