    The last time that Glenn Vincent raced at Ocala Speedway, his 28 machine ended the night on its roof in front of the grandstand.  Vincent walked away from that exciting crash and repaired his battered car, then returned to the site of his misfortune to test the toughness of the track once more.  And for the second outing in a row, the tough 3/8ths mile won as Vincent suffered an ugly barrel roll in turn 2, this time trashing the car to where repairs are probably impossible.  But once again Glenn Vincent walked away from the mayhem, thanks to good luck plus the use of top quality safety equipment.

    In the end, the Amsoil V8 Thunder Stock feature became less about who won and more about who did not, as heavy hitters like Scott Mooers and Chris Fontaine were sidelined by accidents on the track, and a disqualification took the win away from David Kinsey.  So Michael Stalnaker was awarded the victory with Chris Shea placing second and Michael Valdez moving up to the third spot.  Harold Erickson picked his way through the field and survived more than a couple of brushes with the wall to finish fourth, and Gordon Cade rounded out the top five.

    The Mini Stocks have survived a season where the division came close to going into extinction on dirt tracks in Florida and where drama off the track has played out to where the division is as strong as ever at this point in the season.  Nineteen Mini Stocks were on hand on Friday night and the racing was some of the best of the season as Keith Briggs suffered a coolant leak that left him on the rear of the field for the start of the feature race.  And as one might expect, Briggs was not about to be a follower.

    While Briggs was busy fighting his way through heavy traffic, there was plenty of action up front thanks to Charlie Staats, Johnny Zackery, and Rob Underwood.  Zackery's night would not go his way as he was involved in two accidents, the second of which ended his run, but Staats and Underwood ran strong throughout the race, as did Nick Kerr and Paul Combast.  In fact, Combast had a starting position that had him mired in traffic for a good portion of the race, but he climbed to the top three and was the second car to take the checkers.

    Keith Briggs fought hard through the pain of a bad back to make his way to the point and claim a victory as Combast followed, but Combast's night would go south from there.  A protest was made on Combast's 19C machine but Combast refused a teardown, automatically resulting in a disqualification under the rules.  That moved Rob Underwood up to second place and Charlie Staats up to third, while Nick Kerr and Ray Ethridge were fourth and fifth.

    By the time that the Gladiators made their way out for their feature race, they found that the other three divisions had left them with a rough race track that was going to be every bit as challenging as the other competitors in their division, but Casey Feaster was up to the task.  Jordan Myers led early but Jerry Taylor fought his way into the top spot by lap 7.  That is when Casey Feaster began working on the 31 car in his quest to win, eventually getting the better of Taylor and making another visit to Ocala's victory lane.  Taylor finished behind Feaster, but earned a disqualication after racing ended, which moved up the rest of the field.  Matt Shea went home with the second place trophy, while third place went to Devin Walker.  Steven Johnson finally had a good night and finished fourth, and Jordan Myers hung on to finish in fifth place.

    Ocala Speedway returns to action this Friday, September 10th, with the annual Tribute to 9-11 Heroes Night.  In appreciation for all of our heroes, all emergency responders and active military will be admitted free of charge with proper ID, and will see action from the Late Models, Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks, and the Gladiators.  For more info, or to see more info on the exciting events still to come in 2010, please visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com.
