Mods And Sportsman To Debut On Colortyme Night at Ocala

. Posted in Racing News

OCALA,FL-  Modified and Sportsman fans and racers have had a frustrating year so far at Ocala Speedway, as weather has targeted the nights where those divisions were scheduled to race.  And in fact, neither division has managed to take a green flag at Ocala Speedway in 2010 so far!  But that should change this Friday, April 16th, as the long term weather forecast is good and the racers are ready to attack the toughest 3/8ths mile in the southeast.

Colortyme Rent-To-Own Night will be the setting for the $1500 to win Colortyme Open Wheel Modified Spring Fling that is expected to draw an overflow field of top Modified racers to Ocala, and should provide an awesome debut of the Colortyme Modifieds at Florida's oldest speedway.  In addition to the mods, the Ocala Speedway Sportsman Division will hope that the third time is the charm, as the weather canceled their first two outings this season so far.  The Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks and the Gladiators will also be racing.

While the Colortyme Mods and Sportsman divisions have been battling the weather instead of each other at Ocala Speedway, there has been at least one Gladiator race which was won by Casey Feaster.  Feaster is in a new race car for 2010 and has been making waves wherever he races.  In addition to his win at Ocala, the 20 car has gained a total of 26 positions in two weeks of racing at Volusia Speedway Park, as Feaster started races in the rear of the pack and turned that adversity into top 5 finishes.

Last Friday's victory in the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks gave Daniel Miller Jr. the points lead over Hillbilly Racing's Joe Boyd.  But Boyd is only one point shy of Miller, and both Heath Walker and Dean Jarvis are tied at 5 points short of number one.  With a points race this tight, every move on the track could easily have a major bearing on who gets the championship this season, and everyone will be giving it their all to put themselves on top of the others.

Ocala Speedway's pit gate opens at 2PM with "hot laps" scheduled for 6:45PM.  The grandstand gates open at 5PM with heat races beginning at 8PM.  Admission prices and a complete schedule of events can be found at www.OcalaSpeedway.com, or call the speedway at 352-622-9400.

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
