Luck Of The Irish

. Posted in Racing News

REW-Bubba-3-17 8488Top Gun Sprints, Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, Thunderstocks, and Gladiators battled hard with 5 winners all happy to take home the $1000 prize on Night Of A Thousands!

The Hobby Stock feature saw minor incidents cause caution flags including the lap 10 caution when Don Woosley stopped at pit entrance. Trevor Gamble, Rodney Wright, and Mike Stalnaker dominated the first half but Stalnaker's car began to go away and he fell back a little. The final caution came out for Trey Isgette III when he found himself facing the turn 2 wall. Gamble pulled away to take his first win of the season while Kevin Durden and Tim Gay took advantage of Rodney Wright's mistake pushing Wright to 4th behind Durden and Gay. Mike Stalnaker completed the top 5.

On lap 2 "The Killer" passed Kent Corbin for the lead just before Larry Mott spun and brought the yellow out. Fast forward to lap 20 when Mike Warren spun the #2 and brought the caution out setting up a 5 lap battle between Kyle Bronson, Jeff Mathews, and Wayne Hammond. Bronson was less than 1 lap away from the win when Dalton Lanich spun out and put the caution out. Bronson didn't let up and he took the win as Mathews and Hammond completed the podium finishers. Barry Sheffield finished 4th and Scott Mooers took another 5th place finish pushing him to 3rd in the standings.

Matt Kurtz had duct tape numbers. A 5 caution race was quick other than for the red flag after the Jimmy Ballew/Terry Witherspoon flip in turn 4. No one was hurt. Gene Lasker spun on lap 13 leaving Kurtz, Danny Martin, Jr., and Robbie Smith to battle for the win over the final 7 laps. Kurtz held on after an aggressive assault from Martin. Mark Ruel, Jr. was 3rd, Ryan Partin 4th, and Smith finished 5th. Matt Kurtz has a trophy.

Until the lap 7 restart the race had belonged to Chad Scranton, Jason Gamble, and Shane Nichols. But, it all left when Gamble spun and tore the right side of Mike Stalnaker's 77 off and flattened John Thorpe's right front. From then until the last restart it was Nichols behind Scranton with Jonathan Appleby the new 3rd place man. On the penultimate restart Nichols was slow but he was given 2nd back when the yellow flew half a lap in. Scranton took an easy win while Appleby, Robert Ray, Gordon Cade (on 6 cylinders), and Brian Mullins completed the top 5 putting both Cheater Racing cars 5th or better.

After a few cautions Harold Lewis passed Ray Hunter for the lead but 2 laps later Hunter took it back through some help from lapped traffic. However, on lap 10 Hunter's right front flew off and "The Old Fox" Steve Cox took the lead. He would not relinquish it as he beat Jordan McMillon, Harold Lewis, Sammy Dale, and Randy Harless across the line. And, S&S Roofing Team has their drivers 1-2-3 in the standings.

Bubba Raceway Park is off on the 24th! We will be back on the 31st. For more information you can go to www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway at 352-622-9400.

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
