OCALA, FL- Fans and racers at Florida's oldest race track will have a shot at getting a cash bonus this Friday night as Ocala Speedway presents the debut of Pepsi Wheel of Fortune Night.  A lucky fan will spin the wheel to determine who gets a hefty cash bonus from Pepsi, the official soft drinks of Ocala Speedway.  The cash could be distributed to one racing division, plus some lucky fans, depending on where the Pepsi Wheel of Fortune indicates.

Ocala Speedway's Late Model Division is currently running in the shadow of champion racer and local favorite, Ivedent Lloyd Jr.  But Lloyd is sometimes lured away by major races in other locations, so his points lead is merely 2 over Mark Whitener.  Whitener drives for another local stable, wheeling the 58 Big Frog Motorsports, Dave's Towing machine, within rock throwing distance from the speedway.  Just five points back stands Keith Nosbisch who has been strong in 2010, and Lake Helen's Joe Kump is only 9 points behind Ivedent Lloyd.  With the race this close, a lot could change depending on who shows up on Friday night, and what transpires on the track.

With a week off to think about it, the Amsoil Synthetic Lubricants Thunder Stocks will be back in action with an equally tight points race unfolding.  Jerrid Bennett of Palatka holds onto the points lead, but Ocala's Michael Stalnaker is only 6 points shy and gaining fast as he continues his winning ways.  Stalnaker needs to watch his back as well, as Eddie Lentz is within two points of tying him for second, and Brian Shea is just a point behind Lentz.  And if you add Jason Gamble, Augie Burttram, and Sean Babcock to the mix, that makes seven racers all within 20 points of first place.
