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.

HITENER CATCHES AIR TO VICTORY IN NeSMITH LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER

(Photos By Trace.com)OCALA, FL – Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL bounced his way to victory on Wednesday night in the 40-lap NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series season opener at Bubba Raceway Park driving the Dave’s Towing Special. Whitener had to hold on through adverse track conditions to bring his race car home in one piece to take the win. Several inches of rain earlier in the week gave track owner Bubba Clem and his crew a challenge just to even have the track with a new clay surface ready to race on Wednesday night for the Rock Auto.com Winternationals season opener. A deep hole in the turn four surface developed with ten laps to go that sent the dirt late models airborne coming off the corner. “I race here a lot and Bubba and his crew do a great job to always have the best track conditions, so tonight was an exception because of all of the rain we’ve had here,” Whitener said. “I thought they did great just to give us a track we could race on early, but when the hole developed in turn four, we just had to get through it as best we could.” As the rut deepened in turn four, Whitener had a big lead over Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, WV in the Bland’s Towing Rocket. After Whitener bounced through the hole a couple of times, he… read more
