Three New Winners In Four Divisions

. Posted in Racing News

With the RaceCar Engineering Late Models, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks, Mini Stocks, and Gladiators all running there was much to be gained and lost on the clay. Of course, racing and pitting wasn't all that would go on out on the clay.

The Mini Stocks came in knowing that the conditions were right for a new winner as they had 2 weeks to work and rest. Lap 2 saw Shirlene Hammond, the previous race winner, take the lead from David Pope. However, 3 laps later, while attempting to lap the slower Kody Kinsey, Hammond and Kinsey made contact and the 2 went up to the wall, ending both drivers nights and repeat dreams. David Pope would be handed the lead 1/3 through. The restart gave "Hot Shot" Keith Briggs a chance to take the lead and he shot the 19T to the lead. The half-way point arrived and Sherman Pope and Dean Kinsey had a spin out of turn 4. The final 7 laps were green and "Hot Shot" put the Xtreme Racing 19T in Victory Lane. Brittany Yates took some points with 2nd, 2010 champion Nick Kerr took the final podium position, David Pope put the 81 in 4th, and Ray Folwell rounded out the top 5.

A $500 to win race was enough to put 28 Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks on track and that led to some great racing. Jonathan Appleby passed Brian Shea for the lead on lap 1, but the 2 made contact on the next lap and Shea's spin was deemed "avoidable contact" meaning Appleby was put to the back and Shea would hold the lead. Brian Shea and 2nd place Brian Mullins both jumped the restart once, and when they started the 3rd time it was Mullins in the lead. Lap 3 saw Vaughn Woodall stop in turn 2, ending his night and costing him some valuable points. Lap 4 saw Chad Scranton pass his team-mate for the lead that he wouldn't let slip away from him. Lap 5 and the yellow was out again for debris while Jason Gamble took the 27 to pit lane. The lap 6 yellow came out for the stopped car of Brian Mullins due to a tire. Meanwhile Appleby was slashing through the field. Gamble lost his right rear in turn 4 on lap 10 meaning that the top 3 in points would finish outside the top 20. Scranton was out front holding off every threat from Luke Sadler and Brian Shea when the yellow came out on lap 18 for Tony Campbell and his lost tire. It was a battle of the "S" with Scranton taking his 4th win in 5 starts while Luke Sadler had to settle for runner-up. In the 3rd spot was Brian Shea who started up front this week-end, Ryan Lasik battled and kept the car clean for a 4th place run, and Jonathan Appleby did 'Eat Good In The Neighborhood' as he came from the back for 5th.

RaceCar Engineering Late Model excitement got under way on lap 4 when Andy Cobb and VP Pipken had a spin in turn 2. Lap 6 saw Cobb drop to the turn 1 apron and Jamie Slatton stopped in turn 3 bringing out the yellow flag. Jack Nosbisch took the lead from Kyle Van Sickle on lap 7 and started to pull away when Christian Augspurger stopped his 35 on the backstretch. During this period Mark Whitener and Kyle Van Sickle angered each other and on the restart it was Whitener washing up the frontstretch and Kyle Van Sickle ended up between a wall and a Late Model and as the cars bounced down it took Bo Allen and Donnie Chappell to the infield. Van Sickle and Chappell went straight to the pit area, but Whitener and Allen waited. A skirmish broke out in turn 1 and the word was that a Bo Allen crewman started the fight and the Big Frog Motorsports team of Whitener was involved as well. Both drivers were immediately disqualified for conduct, whether by driver or crew members. However, the best was yet to come and 3 laps after the restart it was "Iceman" Austin Kirkpatrick in the lead. Iceman had to hold Nosbisch off once more after John Koller's stop in turn 1 on lap 15. Iceman was up to the task and held 'em off for the win with Jack Nosbisch the runner up. Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. took 3rd after some minor trouble with race control, JO Nobles ran a masterful race for 4th, and Dillon Wood ran 5th for some good points.

Sammy Dale took the lead from "British Bulldog" Stephen Frankland at the beginning and Dale never looked back. It was lap 10 and a debris caution was out. The very next lap saw Ken McCloud stop on the turn 4 apron bringing out another yellow. The restart saw Ray Hunter and Harold Lewis make contact and both were to the back. Lewis, however, exited the course. It was a sprint and Sammy Dale took the trophy home with Reid Christensen 2nd, "The Dominator" Steve Cox 3rd, Steve Johnson put the S&S 81 in 4th, and Casey "Insert Your Nickname" Feaster rounded out the top 5.

Next week-end is UMP Open-Wheel Modified action for $1500 and Double Points, Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks, Gladiators, and Florida Mini Sprints Association racing. For more information you can check out www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway hotline.

Results 6-28-14

by BRP Media
The first half of the 2014 racing season came to a close this past Saturday Night. The night ended in a bang with a lot of great racing action, to be followed by a beautiful Pre-4th of July Fireworks Show. The Hobby Stocks were first out for their 20 lap feature event. Rick Elwood (92) would find himself leading the first half of this race in comfort, until Eric Moon (18) made his way through the field into the second position. Once Moon maneuvered his way through the field and caught Elwood these two would battle it out for the top position for last 5 laps. At the checkered Elwood would win followed by Moon, third would go to Cory Howard (22), forth to Brandon Elwood (28E) and rounding out the fifth position would be Joe Forsyth (17F). Next up would be the Scorpion Performance Engine Modifieds to take to the track. The original line up would have Austin Sanders (64) and Paul Snyder (54) starting on the front row, followed by Buzzie Reutimann (00) and Roger Crouse (9) starting in the second row. Race control would then offer up a challenge to all 4 drivers. The challenge would be to go to the back of the 10 car field, If one of these 4 drivers would win the feature they would receive a $300 dollar bonus. Sanders, Snyder and Reutimann would accept the challenge leaving Crouse and Shane Nichols (65) for a front row start. Crouse would take advantage of the front row start and jump out to an early lead putting distance on Sanders and Snyder, but unfortunate luck for Reutimann… read more
