Week 1, Day 2: UMP DirtCar Open-Wheel Modifieds

. Posted in Racing News

UMP/Dirt Car Openwheel Modified Feature Winner Kyle Bronson

Again the UMP DirtCar Open-Wheel Modifieds took to the clay as did the V-8 Thunderstocks and this time was for glory.

The V-8 Thunderstocks kicked off action with a 20 lap event. Davey Kinsey pulled out to a lead while Jason Gamble pushed his #02 to the front. Lap 3 slowed the action when James Sullivan slowed in turn 3 and came to a halt in 4. Kinsey had his hands full with hard charging drivers such as Mike Stalnaker, Justin Durbin, Brian Shea, and Eddie Lake behind him. Kinsey, however, pressed on and pulled away while Stalnaker, Lake, and Shea battled for P2. On lap 17 things got crazy as Lake got loose out of turn 4. Lake made slight contact with Mike Stalnaker who tapped Brian Shea towards the wall and on to his brakes. Shea barely missed the wall but lost his track position when the yellow came out. Kinsey kept the field at bay giving him the flag-to-flag victory giving the Big Frog Motorsports team a reason to smile. Justin Durbin took advantage of other's mistakes and his own skill to finish 2nd while Lake took a well deserved 3rd. Mike Stalnaker and Jason Gamble completed the top 5. Daniel Laird finished a quiet 6th, Jason Blackmer kept it in one piece and still finished 7th, with William Edwards, Gordon Cade, and Brian Shea completing the top 10.

Kyle Bronson, Jeff Mathews, and Scott Mooers were the top 3 qualifiers. Bronson set fast time with an 18.004 around Bubba Raceway Park. The first yellow, however, belonged to Buzzie Reutimann who came to a stop on the Infield 'X' on lap 4. Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. began to pull away while Jeff Mathews, Kyle Strickler, and Kyle Bronson began pushing through the field. At the 1/3 mark of the 30 lapper David McWilliams slowed and brought the yellow out once more. Lloyd again pulled away but was slowed on lap 18 for the Thursday night version of "The Big One" which involved Garret Stewart, Nick Hoffman, Dylan Shafer, Curt Myers, Chad Olsen, Rob Fuqua, and Scott Mooers. Some continued and some went no further. On lap 21 the battle for P2 ended when Kyle Bronson made incidental contact with Bart Hartman, albeit after Bronson had the car 90 degrees sideways, and hindered Kevin Adams. Lloyd and Bronson restarted 1-2 while Kenny Wallace and Jeff Mathews sat 3rd and 4th waiting. Bronson wasted no time and passed Lloyd on lap 22. Green to the end for Kyle Bronson while Lloyd, Wallace, Mathews, and Kyle Strickler completed the top 5. Olsen managed to fight back to 6th, Adams was 7th, Collin Thirlby put his #47T 8th, Hoffman finished 9th, and Scott Mooers put #10 in P10.

Day 3 of UMP Open-Wheel Modified week begins with hot laps at 6. Don't miss the action! Visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Raceway hotline at 352-622-9400!

DARLAND STRETCHES NATIONAL WIN STREAK TO 23 YEARS WITH SUNDAY OCALA WIN

by BRP Media
Ocala, Florida…….Dave Darland added to the most impressive streak in USAC history on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park, as he added another AMSOIL National Sprint Car win to his list and made it 23 consecutive seasons with at least one win in a USAC National series. The Lincoln, Indiana veteran’s all-time record 54th National Sprint Car win came in flag-to-flag fashion aboard the Phillips Motorsports – Trench Shoring #71P DRC/Foxco. “My crew had to work their asses off just to get the car ready for the feature after some issues in the heat race and then gave me a great car even without having much chance to keep up with the track. We have just had some bad luck out of the gate, but tonight was a great way to rebound. It’s good to be down here while it’s snowing at home, and I can drink a beer to celebrate while it’s warm outside. And it’s good to get my first win in the state of Florida!” Darland said. Darland led at the start over polesitter Chris Windom, while Robert Ballou was the early man on the move, jumping into the top-five in just a few laps after starting tenth. A red flag on lap six brought things to a screeching halt as Brady Short flipped hard into turn three and collected Landon Simon. Neither driver was hurt. After a tangle on the ensuing restart, Ballou found himself bringing out the next caution as he slid to a stop in turn-three, giving up the fifth spot but restarting at the tail. Under that caution, defending champion and current point leader Brady Bacon… read more
