Ocala Kicks Off Memorial Day Weekend With Four Divisions

. Posted in Racing News

OCALA, FL-  A long Memorial Day weekend awaits central Florida race fans and Ocala Speedway will kick it off on Friday night with four exciting divisions.  The Colortyme Modifieds will headline the show, and the Sportsman Division will be back in action.  Fans can also expect action packed racing from the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, and also the fast and furious Gladiator cars.

Things remain tight at the top with the Colortyme Modifieds as 16 racers are within striking distance of points leader Jeff Mathews.  Roger Crouse is just 6 points back, while Wayne Hammond and Kyle Bronson are just 9 and 10 points short of the lead spot respectively.  Wayne Hammond got the win the last time out as Mathews followed for second place and Roger Crouse was third.  And while Mathews leads the points standings at Ocala Speedway, he is currently ranked 6th in the DIRTcar UMP National Modified rankings.

While the Sportsman Division at Ocala Speedway came to be at the request of many racers, the division has suffered through some tough outings so far in 2010.  Kevin Mills currently holds onto the points lead, but "Big Frog" Augie Burttram is only two points shy of knocking him down a notch, while Tim Powers and Shane Nichols both lurk within 6 points of Mills.  The last outing for the Sportsman cars at Ocala was a brutal non points, $1000 to win, affair that was won by Alex Boerner.  Mills did not fare very well in that race, but Phillip Cobb was second while Shane Nichols posted a fourth place finish.

Dean Jarvis has the points lead in the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stock Division but Heath Walker is right on his tail and only 4 points shy of overtaking him.  And that is how it looked in the last outing at Ocala Speedway, as Jarvis and Walker battled almost the entire race before Jarvis managed to win.  Jonathan Appleby holds onto the third spot in the points race at 27 points in back of Jarvis.  And a look at the DIRTcar UMP National Stock Car standings shows three local racers in the top 20.  Bubba Christian holds the 9th place nationally, while "The Outlaw" Jody Wells sits in the 14th spot, and Mike Eubanks is ranked 19th.

It was not that long ago that Casey Feaster seemed to have the car to beat in Ocala Speedway's Gladiator Division, but in the last two outings Feaster has had to play second fiddle to EBD Racing's Matt Shea, who is going for three wins in a row this Friday night.  Shea is currently fourth in the 2010 points race and climbing fast, while Steven Johnson holds onto the top spot after a less than spectacular race this past Friday night.  Johnson had better not feel too cozy up there in the lead role as young Devin Walker is only 11 points shy of replacing him, and picked up a third place finish last weekend behind Shea and Feaster.  Casey Feaster, who is currently third in Ocala's points standings and still searching for a solution to Matt Shea, is currently 17th in the DIRTcar UMP National Sport Compact standings.

The grandstand gates will open at 5PM this Friday night with heat races scheduled for 8PM.  For more information, please visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com, where you can find everything from the complete rulebook to the current points standings, plus directions to the ONLY Friday night dirt track in Florida
