Winging It

. Posted in Racing News

This week-end the Top Gun Sprints go wingless for Round 4 alongside a special National Late Model Series South race, Barrett's Race Cars Hobby Stocks feature, and a Gladiators event. These 4 divisions will go out and lead changes should be frequent.

Danny Martin now has an 82 point lead over defending champion Tim George. Martin has won nearly every feature he has started in 2011 and hopes to continue the streak. George is the only driver within 100 points of the dominant Martin. Terry Witherspoon is 3rd, Mark Ruel, Jr. is 4th, and Jimmy Ballew, Jr. hopes to hold on to 5th. Martin will try to win his 3rd consecutive at Bubba Raceway Park while Tyler Godwin will try to beat Martin again.

Jay Johnson has already made a trip to Bubba Raceway Park and that knowledge will help him as he attempts to hold onto his narrow 3 point lead over our leading rookie Austin Kirkpatrick. "IceMan" has done a fantastic job even taking a win and hopes to take another in his chase for 2 titles. Hunter peacock and Brandon DeWitt are tied for 3rd at 6 points out of 1st. Defending Bubba Raceway Park champion Mark Whitener is 10 points out of 1st. Late Models always put on a good show and nothing less is expected as the National Late Model Series South makes it's trek to Bubba Raceway Park.

Tim Powers has taken a liking to the clay and has built up an 82 point lead over Kevin Durden. Following Durden closely is Buck Woodhouse. Woodhouse has done fantastic and hopes to re-take 2nd by the end of the night. "Smokin" Joe Belkey is 4th in a season where he has a win and he has turned bad nights into top 5s to stay close to the front. Belkey hopes to shake the bad luck and show the leaders what he has in his #12. Joe Boyd has been consistent and has his #83 in 5th with a few events to go. Tommy Ausburn and the #69 team have moved up to 6th with good consistent performences. Howard Osteen, James Erickson, Donnie Reed, and Mark Maresca have missed events for various reasons and that has cost them valuable points. All 4 could take a win at any time and would celebrate proudly in victory circle.

The battle for the points lead has been Steve Cox vs. Reid Christensen. Cox has had leads of as few as 30 and as large as 70 but in recent weeks Cox has extended the lead back to 51. A bad week for Cox and a win by Christensen, however, could bring this battle right back to life. Brandon Haseleu is a distant 3rd and still seeks for win #1 which couldn't come at a better time for the young driver. Steve Johnson, Cox's team-mate, is 4th and has come closer and closer to victory lane in recent weeks. Richard Todd and Jerry Taylor continue to battle for the top 5 with Todd up by 1 point after an all-year battle. Matt Kramer is all alone in 7th and has gotten faster and faster every week-end and could join the lead pack with some luck on the starting grid. Robert Graham and Kody Fisher are 8th and 9th, respectively, but have missed the past few week-ends. Both have shown flashes of brilliance and could finish the job at any time. Stephen Frankland rounds out the top 10 in a season where he has a few top 5s in the smallest car on the grid.

Gates open at 4:30 with racing scheduled for 7. Best seats get taken early. For more information you can go to www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway hotline at 352-622-9400!
