An Exciting First Half

. Posted in Racing News

The first half of the Fall Nationals was a great success and a huge crowd witnessed it. The Mini Stocks, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks, and Sunoco United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series were all ready to roar and roar they did. Everyone that saw this event saw everything there is to see in racing.

The Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks are known for tight racing and there was no disappointment in that aspect. Jason Gamble started outside pole and had the best shot he's had for a win all season. It was not to be, however, and on the lap 1 restart he lost a wheel, ending his night. On lap 8, Scott Mooers lost his wheel and Eddie Kilbury, with nowhere to go, t-boned Mooers passenger side door. Mike Stalnaker kept working his way up and after leading a lap, took it for a loop in turn 2. Stalnaker wouldn't give up, though, and on the final lap he was where he needed to be. In turn 3, Robert Ray pushed the dominating James Erickson up the track, leaving the bottom open for Stalnaker. Mike Stalnaker won by about half a car while Ray would settle for 2nd and James Erickson would finish 3rd. Gordon Cade and Vaughn Woodall had a great battle and at the end, Cade was 4th, and Woodall 5th.

10152010LMThe Fall Nationals at Ocala Speedway was a great 50 lap event. Mark Whitener had won the Zigler Race Engineering Fast Qualifier Award earlier in the night and was looking to win the race as well. The Sunoco United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series could very well end their season at the 2nd half of the Fall Nationals, hosted by Volusia Speedway Park, with a very close points battle between Whitener, Ivedent Lloyd, Darrell Padgett, and Keith Nosbisch. However the race would not belong to any of those men and on lap 2, Whitener would have a tire go down on him. On the restart, Christian Augspuirger spun and Jordy Nipper, Bubba 'The Love Sponge' Clem, and Mark Whitener all got collected. On lap 8 Darrell Padgett slowed and it was due to his engine which was starting to miss. Tyler Ivey had an incredible night in which he dominated and had plenty of great restarts. Shan Smith ran 2nd, followed by "Catfish" Keith Nosbisch in 3rd which really helps his championship hopes, John Kellum 4th, and Dillon Wood would take home 5th.

Ocala Speedway's Mini Stocks ran the final event of the night and it might have been the most exciting race for them all season. On lap 3, Dan Kerr, Johnny Zackery, and "Hot Shot" Keith Briggs had a mishap in turn 2 which forced "Hot Shot" to drive through the middle of the infield while Kerr and Zackery took a less eventful path. 2 laps later, Dan Kerr and Jimbo Bird made contact and they spun up near the front stretch wall. On the restart, "Hot Shot" maneuvered his way around points leader Nick Kerr and never looked back. "Hot Shot" would win his 6th-in-a-row at Ocala, followed across the line by Nick Kerr, Johnny Zackery, Buddy Pope, and Dan Kerr.

Ocala Speedway will run the Colortyme Open Wheel Modifieds along with a $1000 to win Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks race, the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, and the Gladiators. Plus, the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association will be here as well. For more information you can call the Speedway or visit www.ocalaspeedway.com.

NOSBISCH TAKES BUBBA RACEWAY PARK NeSMITH LATE MODEL WIN

by BRP Media
Keith Nosbisch of Valrico, FL celebrates his fifth career NeSmith Late Model win and his first in seven years on Friday night at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL during the Rock Auto.com Winternationals driving the Image Skin Care Rocket. (photosbytrace.com)OCALA, FL – No matter where the competition comes from, Keith Nosbisch of Valrico, FL has always been tough when it comes to keeping the big money in the Sunshine State. Friday night was no exception, as Nosbisch took his fifth NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series career win and his first in seven years during the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park. Nosbisch, a 30 year veteran of Florida dirt late model racing, was the class of the field, as he set fast time honors to earn the pole position for the 50-lap race, and led 44 laps to collect the $3,000 top prize driving the Image Skin Care Rocket. Nosbisch lost the lead for six laps to Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, but stuck to his inside groove to retake the point. “The lapped cars really slowed my pace down by a half a second, and Walker caught me behind a lapped car and passed me for the lead on the outside,” Nosbisch said. “I knew if I was patient enough, I could get back under him if the lapped cars would give me enough room and they did.” Wednesday night’s race winner, Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL finished second in the Dave’s Towing Special and Arthur ended up third in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. Arthur leads the NeSmith Late Model… read more
