The last remaining Mini Stock Division on dirt is going through some changes at Ocala Speedway as racers and the track staff work to make this group a success again. And as the changes take shape, the points race has remained tight along the way, with Paul Combast currently holding the lead. But despite getting a win last week, Combast can't seem to shake Nick and Dan Kerr who are lurking just 4 and 5 points behind him. And Combast also is wary of Keith Briggs, who has battled everything from a bad back, to a broken race car, to plain old lousy luck. Briggs sits only 11 points shy of the leader in the forth spot, and seems to be having more success each week.
Casey Feaster has emerged as the man to beat in Ocala's Gladiator Division in 2010, but last Friday night his "win" lasted only as long as it took the tech officials to find an illegal part, so the 20 car earned a DQ and a goose egg in the points battle. That transgression sent Feaster plummeting in the points, 46 points out of first and 6th in line. And sitting on top of the points list is Steven Johnson who inherited a win after the tech officials finished their work on Friday, but his seat may not be as comfortable as it seems, as young Kody Fisher is in second place just 4 points out of first, and Lasoski Racing's Devin Walker is just 5 points shy of Fisher. So while an adult may be in charge for the moment, it looks like the youngsters may be taking over the game.
Race fans can enter the grandstand gate on Friday night at 5PM, and heat races will get underway at 8PM. Fans are also reminded to get their advance tickets to the Annual Monster Jam Summer Tour, featuring the most popular Monster Truck on the planet, Grave Digger! Monster Jam will take over Ocala Speedway on April 30th through May 2nd. For a complete schedule of events, or to check ticket prices, please visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com, for more information.
