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.

Bronson “Parks It” Again at Bubba Raceway Park

by Scott McAllister
Thanks to beautiful weather, Fan Appreciation Night and our annual “Back to School” Back Pack Giveaway, Bubba Raceway Park was packed with fans ready to enjoy some fantastic racing action. The Galaxy Fireworks Hobby Stocks were the 1st to roll out for their feature and Tim Gay from Plant City quickly made it known he was here for the win. It was Gay’s 1st appearance at BRP this year, but once he got out front, he never looked back and “parked it” in the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts Victory Lane. Mike Stalnaker had a strong run as always, finishing 2nd and Rodney Wright in the 99 car from Altoona crossed the stripe 3rd. Rick Elwood had a tremendous run after tagging the back of the field earlier in the race to finish 4th and DJ Nobles, who didn’t even make it for heat races and started in the back of the field, finished 5th. Heat races were won by Rick Elwood and Mike Stalnaker. Florida Mini Sprints brought out their usual breathtaking show with multiple “slide-jobs” on both ends of the track. Dirk Miller in the #68 Todd’s Tomatoes, Hyper Racing Chassis from Deland powered his way to another win here at BRP. He was hounded all night by Robbie Smith who eventually had to settle for a hard fought 2nd. Rounding out the top 5 were Danny Sams, Robby Hoffmann and Austin Craddock. The two heat race winners were Robbie Smith and David Hall. Modifieds rolled out 17 strong and it was quickly apparent that the winner would have to earn this victory.
