BRP 2016WN MJ 12X18 615

The Late Models have had 2 completely different ways of winning a race in 2011. Tyler Ivey made a last lap pass of Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. when Lloyd's tire was unfortunately cut under caution. On the other hand, Darrell Padgett thouroughly dominated last week's feature, but it didn't come easy as he had to hold off drivers such as Mark Whitener and Shan Smith. Ivey holds a 14 point lead over Padgett, while 3rd place Dillon Wood and Bo Allen both have podium finishes and 15 points to make up on Ivey. "Catfish" Keith Nosbisch is 5th, 22 points behind leader Tyler Ivey.

Of course, the Powell Memorial is more then just a race, but an honor to James Powell's family: his mother Elizabeth, father Buddy, 4 year old twin daughters, Ashley and Nicole whom the Bubba Raceway Park playground is dedicated to, his aunt Loveda McNair, and uncle CJ Powell who were all lost in a tragic plane accident in Gainesville on June 7th, 1995. James was an owner of Bubba Raceway Park in the Ocala Speedway days from 1981 to 1994, the year before the asphalt decade and some. James Powell is a winner of the Powell Memorial back in 2003 and a 5-time runner-up. You may even spot James Powell in the stands this week-end of the 16th annual Powell Memorial. Over the years many drivers have collected wins in the most prestigious race, according to some, in Florida, including: inaugural winner Jeff Purvis, Johnny Collins (the first to win on dirt), NASCAR star David Reutimann, multiple time winner Wayne Anderson, James Powell himself, Ivedent Lloyd, Jr., Mike Franklin, Jr., and defending champion Phillip Cobb. Every driver would love to put their name on the Powell Memorial win list as once you win the Powell Memorial, you are a champion. A Powell Memorial champion.

Gates open at 4:30 on BOTH nights of action with racing at 8:00 on Friday and racing at 7:00 on Saturday. General admission ticket prices are as usual on Friday, but special event prices are in store for Saturday's Powell Memorial feature.
