The start of the UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds feature saw Garret Stewart go around in his 67 in an evasive move. Lap 5 was scary as Kyle Bronson started catching leader Buzzie Reutimann, but Bronson tapped the backstretch wall and flipped the 40 bringing out a red flag. A 4 lap run gave drivers suck as Kent Corbin, Rich Pratt, and Jeff Mathews to climb from their starting spots, before Scott Mooers and Michael Flick made contact and did a loop in turns 1 and 2. Austin Sanders, driving the 333, climbed the turn 2 wall ending his night on lap 10 and knocking the 333 more points behind the 33. The lap 11 yellow flew for debris from the infield tires. On lap 13 Jeff Mathews made the first lead change of the night by passing Buzzie Reutimann right before Ronnie Soltis slowed in turn 3. The lap 14 restart saw Tommy Gamble make contact with the very slow Kent Corbin. The re-restart saw Scott Mooers and David Moheng spin in turn 1. The timer had expired so the call was Green and White simultaneously which gave Reutimann 1 last chance. Buzzie drove under Mathews but couldn't battle the speed from the high line. Mathews took win #2 of the season with Reutimann 2nd. Devin Dixon watched all night and took 3rd with "Crazy" Jim Passino an impressive 4th and Ronnie Chance 5th. Garret Stewart drove back up to 6th while Dave Barber went home a quiet 7th. Paul Sizemore, Jason Davis, and Henry Hall rounded out an impressive top 10.

The Top Gun Sprint Cars battled each other and the clay and the carnage showed it. Dan Jones and Mark Ruel, Jr. made contact before the green flag which resulted in Ruel's night being over. The restart saw Gene Lasker grab a rut and flip his 02 into the turn 4 catchfence. An extended red flag was put out to relocate the Ned Zone fans with that shortened catchfence courtesy Lasker. The re-restart saw Brandon Grubaugh and Tony Agin spin and Dan Jones flip his 14W. The lap 2 yellow came out for infield tires which allowed hard charging Robbie Smith and Rich Alexander to catch the field again. Agin spun at the half-way point which put Danny Martin on Tyler Godwin's rear. After 4 laps Godwin hit the turn 1 wall and flipped his 4C violently. Godwin, however, was okay. Martin inherited the lead with Matt Kurtz and Robbie Smith behind him. On lap 17 Terry Witherspoon gripped a tire from the infield and flipped his 43 which was the final yellow of the night. Witherspoon was okay after the accident. Kurtz and Smith shot at Martin but Martin put his 24 in victory lane. Kurtz was 2nd with Smith 3rd, AJ Maddox 4th from 21st starting spot, and Stephen Darvolics was 5th. Tim George took 6th, Ryan Partin 7th, Shawn Murray 8th, Tim Grubaugh 9th, and Jimmy Ballew, Jr. finished 10th.

The very start of the Gladiators feature was crazy as Denica Hetznecker, Chase Gustafson, Jerry Taylor, Richard Todd, Steve Johnson, George Christensen, and Brandon Haseleu found damage on the frontstretch. Christensen and Haseleu would, however, be done for the night. The lap 1 yellow came out for debris off of a bumper. On lap 2 Reid Christensen overtook Richard Todd for the race lead, but would lose it 2 laps later when the 30 ran out of power and brought out a yellow flag. On lap 8, Steve Johnson, who inherited the lead on lap 4, gave way to team-mate Steve Cox. With 2 laps to go Cox had a right front go down in a non-power steering car and Denica Hetznecker smelled blood. "Rowdy" put the 16 to the inside and a little bit of rubbing helped her take the lead. "Rowdy" took the win and was speechless after. Steve Johnson took 2nd with Jerry Taylor 3rd. Steve Cox salvaged 4th with 3 tires and Chase Gustafson took an impressive 5th. Matt Kramer and Richard Todd battled to the end with Kramer 6th over Todd. Reid Christensen, Brandon Haseleu, and George Christensen took top 10s from the garage.

Next week at Bubba Raceway Park it's Double Points Night for the Top Gun Sprint Cars. The RaceCar Engineering Late Models return as do the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks. Also, the Florida Mini Sprints Association and Gladiators will race on the clay. For more information you can go to www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway hotline at 352-622-9400
