2-18- BC-VL 048 edited-1a24 Rick EckertWorld of Outlaws Late Models and the Florida Mini Sprints hit the clay for 1 last time during Winternationals and put on a show that won't be soon forgotten with Hulk Hogan throwing the green flag from the track.

Gavin Thomas won the dash for pole for the Florida Mini Sprints which gave the Todd's Tomatoes Team a boost for the feature. Thomas went on to finish 3rd with some problems that would plague him in the race. Tyler Ross, last night's winner, finished 4th with Eddie Moss, Jr. right behind him. Chris Pacetti finshed 2nd but was nearly half a lap behind the absolutely dominant Jim Young. No cautions occurred in the last 2 events for the FMSA.

Lanigan, the 2008 champ, won Thursday. Josh Richards, the 2009 and 2010 winner, won Friday. Another former champion joined them as winners at Bubba Raceway Park. On lap 11 Tim Fuller cut a tire while mid-pack which forced the World of Outlaws Race Control to put the yellow out. Mike Marlar had been pulling away and he did so again before the field was bunched up on lap 20 when Billy Moyer stopped on the turn 1 apron. The next 22 laps were green and Marlar held on before Greg Johnson spun to avoid hindering the lead pack. Darrel Lanigan took advantage of his 3rd place position to take the lead but he made a mistake just 1 lap later which allowed "Scrub" Rick Eckert to take the lead. Marlar took 2nd back with Richards in tow. On lap 47 Jared Hawkins spun in turn 4 setting up a sprint. Eckert pulled away but with 5 to go Marlar cut the 1.1 second lead down to just .4. Then .2. The last 2 laps were nearly side-by-side but on the backstraight on lap 60 of 60 Marlar hit the wall and blew the right rear. Eckert took 1 breath before crossing the line with Richards and Lanigan behind him. Shane Clanton and Pat Doar completed the top 5. Marlar finished 18th, last lead lap car.
