Father Mows Best At Ocala Speedway This Friday

. Posted in Racing News

OCALA, FL-  This Friday night brings something different and new to Ocala Speedway, as the "Father Mows Best" competition will put real fathers on real lawnmowers and turn them loose to race on the clay at Florida's oldest speedway.  In addition to the lawnmower event, expect high energy action from the Late Models, Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, and the Gladiators.

After the excitement of the 15th Annual Powell Memorial has died down it is time for Ocala Speedway's Late Model racers to get back to the business of winning the 2010 points championship.  Currently Mark Whitener is on top of the rankings with a 22 point pad over the newest Powell Memorial winner, Phillip Cobb.  JO Nobles remains within 6 points of Cobb, and Christian Augspurger trails Nobles by only 12 points.  In fact, no less than ten racers are within 100 points of first place, and many are making moves toward the top.

Dean Jarvis and Heath Walker have enjoyed battling for the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks points lead as much as fans have enjoyed watching them battle it out in feature races, but the last outing saw both racers make early exits and that opened the door for Bubba Christian to step up and grab a win.  Walker is a mere 10 points from replacing Jarvis as the points leader, but Jonathan Appleby and William Edwards are both within 40 points of doing the same, so neither Jarvis nor Walker can afford to concentrate on each other.

Ocala Speedway's Mini Stocks have had many ups and downs this season so far, but through it all the competition level has remained heated at the top.  Defending champion Paul Combast has a toe hold on the top rung of the points ladder with Nick Kerr just 3 points back and Dan Kerr is 12 points out of first place.  Depending on what happens on Friday night it is likely that there could be another change at the top, and the only question might be who ends up where.

Steven Johnson is still on top of the Gladiator points battle despite the best efforts of Casey Feaster and Matt Shea, who have both been outperforming him as of late.  Feaster grabbed the win last Friday while Shea wound up in the second spot, so both are still gaining ground on the leader bit by bit.  Meanwhile Devin Walker made an early exit thanks to a mechanical failure on Friday night, so he will be focused on making up what was lost this week.  Walker currently sits in third place in the points standings, just behind Casey Feaster.

Ocala Speedway will open the grandstand gates at 5PM on Friday night with heat races beginning at 8PM,  and the "Father Mows Best" event will be held during the intermission period.  For more information, please be sure to visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com, and don't forget to check out the rest of the season schedule while you are there.
