Monster Jam Summer Tour Returns To Ocala

. Posted in Racing News

OCALA, FL- As is the tradition on the first weekend in May, racing has come to a halt at the historic Ocala Speedway in order to make room for the Monster Jam Summer Tour, featuring the most popular monster truck on the planet, Grave Digger.  Four shows will run over the course of the weekend and fans will travel from across Florida to see these internationally famous trucks perform.

Fans know these wildly popular trucks from the Monster Jam TV series on Speed, and from the large stadium shows that they perform across the country.  But what many fans may not know is that the Ocala Speedway shows offer a much more intimate look at these huge machines and their drivers, as the fans will be literally feet from the action.  Also, the trucks have the run of the entire infield of the Ocala Speedway complex, offering them more space to do their freestyle competitions.  This translates into longer slap wheelies, higher and longer jumps, plus faster races as well.  The trucks can open it up and go full throttle at Ocala, where that is all but impossible on the restricted space of a stadium floor.

Shows are scheduled for Friday night, Saturday afternoon and evening, and there will be a Sunday afternoon farewell show as well.  Gates open at 6:30PM for the evening shows with action beginning at 7:30PM.  Afternoon show gates open at 1 PM with the show beginning at 2 PM.  Admission is $15 per person at the gate.  Fans are encouraged to arrive early as seating is on a first come basis in the grandstands, plus the bleachers in turns one and four.  Fans are also reminded that due to strict insurance restrictions, no food or drinks can be brought into the speedway, but tailgating is allowed in the parking area as long as it does not obstruct access to parking for others.

Regular racing will return to Ocala Speedway on May 7th for the Night of Thousands, with $1000 to win feature races for the Sportsman, Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, and the Amsoil Synthetic Lubricants Thunder Stocks.  Ocala's competitive Gladiator division will also be racing.

For more information about the Monster Jam Summer Tour, directions to the speedway, or pricing information, please visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com, or call the track at 352-622-9400.

DARLAND STRETCHES NATIONAL WIN STREAK TO 23 YEARS WITH SUNDAY OCALA WIN

by BRP Media
Ocala, Florida…….Dave Darland added to the most impressive streak in USAC history on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park, as he added another AMSOIL National Sprint Car win to his list and made it 23 consecutive seasons with at least one win in a USAC National series. The Lincoln, Indiana veteran’s all-time record 54th National Sprint Car win came in flag-to-flag fashion aboard the Phillips Motorsports – Trench Shoring #71P DRC/Foxco. “My crew had to work their asses off just to get the car ready for the feature after some issues in the heat race and then gave me a great car even without having much chance to keep up with the track. We have just had some bad luck out of the gate, but tonight was a great way to rebound. It’s good to be down here while it’s snowing at home, and I can drink a beer to celebrate while it’s warm outside. And it’s good to get my first win in the state of Florida!” Darland said. Darland led at the start over polesitter Chris Windom, while Robert Ballou was the early man on the move, jumping into the top-five in just a few laps after starting tenth. A red flag on lap six brought things to a screeching halt as Brady Short flipped hard into turn three and collected Landon Simon. Neither driver was hurt. After a tangle on the ensuing restart, Ballou found himself bringing out the next caution as he slid to a stop in turn-three, giving up the fifth spot but restarting at the tail. Under that caution, defending champion and current point leader Brady Bacon… read more
