A Full Moon And A Completed Season
by Jimmy Rouse- Ocala Speedway Media

It was the final night of action in 2010 at Ocala Speedway and the races didn't disappoint. The Late Models headlined the night while the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks and Gladiators battled for points. The Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks had their night where no winners from 2010 were allowed to run and the fans saw some great racing all around.

Up first were the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks and everyone in the field wanted to prove that they could win. On lap 2, Eddie Lake took his 96 for a spin while Gordon Cade and Michael Carr made contact that neither needed. When the race got back under way, Lake started charging to the front. Just 2 laps from the finish, Brian Shea and heat race winner Kenny Asbell, Jr. made contact sending Asbell spinning into the infield. Mickey Jackson stopped in turn 4 and set up a 1 lap dash. To add to the excitement, race leader Ronnie Harrell had an overheating engine. Harrell held off a hard-charging Jesse Corbitt for the win while Eddie Lake climbed all the way up to 3rd, Sean Babcock went home in 4th, and Jonathan Appleby rounded out the top 5.

The Gladiators were out one last time, trying to make up all the points they could. On lap 1, Chase Gustafson looped the 10G under the scoreboard, and was able to continue. The yellow came out again on lap 5 when Hunter Gustafson and Rebecca Paugh made contact in turn 2, while Larry Nelson and Reid Christensen touched, Christensen getting the worst of it. Steve Cox, Jr. passed Kyle Morse for the lead and was sailing away when Devin Walker got loose in turn 2 and Casey Feaster, with nowhere to go, tapped Walker's left rear and sent Walker into a spin. That set up a 4 lap dash to the checkers. Cox made a great restart and pulled away from Morse and didn't slow down until after he took the checkered flag. Kyle Morse started and finished 2nd, Art Souther finished 3rd, Matt Shea took a very quiet 4th, and Robert Graham was 5th.

The Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks had 3 mathematical contenders for the title- Dean Jarvis, Heath Walker, and Danny Miller, Jr.- and no one was going to lose the title without a fight. On lap 7, though, Danny Miller and Jeff Miller made contact, ending Danny Miller's night and championship hopes. The race up front got tighter when Jody Wells had to slow because his engine wasn't going 100%. Heath Walker and Steve Mooers were catching him when Walker slowed in turn 3. The yellow came out while the white was displayed and as Wells and Mooers made game plans for the restart, Walker was pushed to the pits. As upsetting as it was for Walker, the car was fine and actually refired while in the pits. Walker did not return to the track, but Jody Wells returned to somewhere he loves- victory lane. Wells beat Steve Mooers in a great 1 lap battle as Brian Jerrels muscled his way around Dean Jarvis for 3rd and a trophy. The asphalt-turned-dirt driver, Tommy Ausburn, finished in a respectable 5th.

As the Late Models lined up, Mark Whitener's 58 went straight to the infield. There was no Whitener in it because he was borrowing Joe Kump's J17 for the night. On lap 5, Mark Whitener got caught in traffic and had to make an evasive move which sent the J17 around and almost into the turn 1 wall. Whitener was allowed to restart 2nd because the yellow was out before he spun. Whitener moved past David Clegg on the restart and on lap 6 the yellow came out for debris in turn 1. The season had 9 laps to go when Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. passed Whitener for the lead. Len Parrish slipped up the track and stopped, bringing out the yellow with 8 laps to go. On the restart, Whitener could do nothing with Lloyd, and Lloyd ran away with another win. Whitener finished 2nd, David Clegg 3rd, Keith Nosbisch 4th, and Christian Augspurger 5th.

Ocala Speedway rests very little, but brings some of the best racing around. For more information about next season and all winter events you may call the Speedway or visit www.ocalaspeedway.com.

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
