    Keith Briggs rocketed past David Whitner on the first lap and took the lead while Ray Ethridge had his new car climbing through the top five early on all the way to second place.  Nick and Dan Kerr hooked up with each other and made their way forward as well, with Nick getting by Ethridge and trying to chase down Briggs in the final laps.  But Nick Kerr was short on chase time and had to settle for second place, as Keith Briggs dominated the entire race on his way to a win.  Ray Ethridge snagged third place, while Dan Kerr placed fourth and David Whitner closed out the top five.

    When the Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks took on Ocala Speedway, fenders and bumpers were expendable on a night where it took three heat races and a B main to whittle down the feature line up to 24 contenders.  And the whittling down continued as the green flag fell on the feature race, as most of the top contenders ended up battling for limited real estate in the top five, sometimes going four wide and banging their way around the track.  Some survived the ordeal while others did not, but the fans absolutely loved the action that it created.

    Through it all, Michael Stalnaker managed to muscle his way to the front and take the lead, while Jason Gamble fell in behind Stalnaker as they tried to distance themselves from the mayhem just behind them.  Some of the victims of the brawl were Scott Mooers, Curtis Clark, Jerrid Bennett, and Chris Shea, while Austin Kirkpatrick, Eddie Lake, Gordon Cade, and Jesse Corbitt, all survived it and managed to salvage top ten finishes despite spins, bangs, bumps, and dents.

    Micheal Stalnaker took control of the race and outpaced Gamble to the checkers, returning to the winner's ranks after some misfortunes of his own over the past few weeks.  Gamble's second place finish was also impressive as he managed to outpace Eddie Lake, who took third despite an all out effort for more.  Gordon Cade took his lumps during the race, yet fought back from it all to finish fourth, and Ronald Lentz did the same as he rounded out the top five spots.

    Casey Feaster came to Ocala Speedway as the 4 Cylinder points leader at the tracks at both ends of the Ocala National Forest, and he immediately made it obvious that he intended for it to remain that way.  Matt Shea has been steadily climbing the Gladiator points ladder at Ocala and had no intention of letting Feaster do anything, and with both starting in front it made for a battle that dominated every lap of the race.  Both drivers took turns at the point, and while their fight was intense, it was fought cleanly with virtually no contact throughout.

    Behind Feaster and Shea, Devin Walker had the best seat in the house for their epic battle, choosing to stay out of it for the most part and hope that one of the two leaders would either make a mistake, or eliminate each other.  And Steven Johnson was in the hunt as well, but in a borrowed car since his having mechanical difficulties, and unfortunately for Johnson, he didn't exactly return the car in the same condition in which he borrowed it.

    The Feaster and Shea dispute was never settled until the final turn of the race, as Casey Feaster managed to use the low line in turn four to get to the flagstand first.  Matt Shea happened to be the second place car when the checkers flew, and Devin Walker scored a solid third place finish on the night.  Kyle Morse has improved his game in recent weeks, managing to hold off Nathan Rhoades as they finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

    Ocala Speedway will be back in action on July 30th as the Colortyme Rentals Modifieds will headline four divisions of exciting action.  Also on top will be the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, plus more fender banging action from the Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks, and the continuation of the intense points battle in the Gladiator Division.  For details, plus the complete summer schedule of racing action at America's Dirt Track, please visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com.
