Cool Weather, Hot Battles

. Posted in Racing News

The first ever Car Warz on dirt was a huge success, but it's time for some more divisional racing. The Sunoco United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series (UDLMCS) will run the first half of the Fall Nationals (Volusia Speedway Park hosts the second half) alongside Ocala's very own Mini Stocks and Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks. Some tough racers will be out there, trying to take home another trophy.

Ocala Speedway's Late Models have had a tight points battle all season, but "The Magic Man" Mark Whitener has pulled out to a substantial lead. J.O. Nobles isn't going to throw in the towel, though, and will be gunning for some big gains on "The Magic Man" this week. Phillip Cobb, 3rd in Ocala's standings, won the Powell Memorial, the last UDLMCS race at Ocala, but hasn't had much luck since. On top of Ocala Speedway's standings, the UDLMCS has their own standings. Mark Whitener leads that as well and he has 60 points over Keith Nosbisch, and Nosbisch is going to put as much pressure as he can on "The Magic Man." At 100 points out of 1st is Darrell Padgett, and he's going to make Nosbisch drive his heart out. The Late Model drivers will do all they can to win the title they are gunning for.

The Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks had a crazy night last time out, with Tim Mathieu, Brian Shea, and Vaughn Woodall all getting their first trophies at Ocala. However, the season has belonged to the driver of the 8 car, Mike Stalnaker. Stalnaker leads Chris Shea by 120 points and leads Brian Shea by 136. The Sheas will need to see some checkered flags in the coming weeks to have a shot at the title, but anything can happen at Ocala Speedway. Scott Mooers will keep the Sheas focused, due to the fact that Mooers is just 3 points behind Brian Shea. Vaughn Woodall is in a sort of 'safe zone' in the points as he's 44 points behind Mooers and 42 points ahead of 6th. Every driver will be trying to win a very important race in their hunt for championship glory.

Ocala Speedway will also run the only Mini Stocks on dirt this week and the championship battle has pretty much narrowed down to two. However, when it comes to racing, nothing is certain and anything that can happen, will happen. Nick Kerr leads Dan Kerr by a mere 7 points in their hunt for a title. Buddy Pope is 130 points behind Nick Kerr, but can't focus on just chasing as Johnny Zackery and Keith Briggs are tied for 4th, 136 off the lead. "Hot Shot" Keith Briggs has recently been showing that he could be battling for the title if he hadn't had early season bad luck. "Hot Shot" has won 5-in-a-row and doesn't look to stop now.

Gates open at 5PM for Fall Nationals at Ocala Speedway, with Heats scheduled to start at 8. This is a special event meaning ticket prices are different than usual. To check ticket prices or find out more information, you can call Ocala Speedway or visit www.ocalaspeedway.com.
