(Over) Twenty Years Of Trying

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-4-28 0465 resizeThe Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and the Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks put on 5 of the best shows of 2012 in 5 different ways.
 
Adam Higginbotham took the early lead in the Limited Late Model feature but Bubba Clem snatched it away after a restart. After a lap 9 caution the race restarted but on lap 14 Bubba spun his #14 as JO Nobles was barreling down on him. Nobles dodged 4 more restarts in which Higginbotham and Forrest Gough assaulted the 18 but couldn't make a pass. As the white flag was near display David Showers put his #18 machine in the turn 3 wall to bring out the 9th and final yellow. Nobles won the feature with Higginbotham, Gough, Late Model driver Shan Smith, and Eddie Gainey chasing him.
 
Hobby Stock action started with Howard O'Steen pulling away but on lap 4 Don Woosley's 81 found the wall and most of the pack had to take to the infield to avoid the spinning cars. Just after the restart Kevin Durden, Chad Scranton, Trey Cameron III, David Tyrrell, and Tim Gay wrecked in turn 4. Trevor Gamble made a pass on leader O'Steen after the restart and held on to it through a couple more cautions. "Shady" Grady Christian finished 2nd. Kevin Durden rebounded to a 3rd place finish just in front of Josh Bedenbaugh and Mike Stalnaker who barely made the feature through his B Main.
 
The start of the Modified feature saw Kyle Bronson rip the right side of his 40B off and with it his hopes of 4-for-4. Or so we thought. On lap 4 Bronson passed Dalton Lanich and began to pull away. Some minor yellows plagued the event that Bronson dominated. Lanich finished a strong 2nd with Garret Stewart, Jason Davis, and Jim Passino completing the top 5.
 
A few cautions kept the Mini Stocks close but on lap 10 Nick Hebrank flipped his #9H and stopped the action. What had been a great race for Kyle Kruse went sour during the red flag which left Travis Staats with the lead. The restart would signal 5 to go and Shirlene Hammond wasted no time disposing of the 1AR. Shirlene showed the boys how to do it while Staats was 2nd, Stephen Halbaugh 3rd, Nick Kerr 4th, and Charlie Staats completed the top 5. Travis Staats was disquailifed in tech, however, moving the field up and putting Kruse back into the top 5.
 
Thunderstock drivers couldn't hide their smiles after the race with a winner who they've all been waiting to see in victory lane for a while now. Brandon Elwood grabbed the early lead and fought with Mike Tovet until Tovet's wheel launched off the #30 and ended his night. Elwood fought through cautions and made it to turn 4 and he could see the flagman holding the checkers. All he had between him and the line was a lapped car but they made contact and wrecked the fence. At the line Justin Durbin beat out Mark Trexler by an inch; however, that did not count as the yellow light came on before the lap was completed. Elwood was given his spot back with Trexler 2nd, Jonathan Appleby 3rd, Durbin 4th, and James Sullivan III in 5th. The race was deemed unsafe to be finished and ended under yellow in the order above. However, in tech, Elwood's 28 was found illegal giving the win to Journeyman driver Mark Trexler who started his career in 1990. It marks Trexler's 1st career win and every man from every crew congratulated the driver. Elwood was disappointed but had no bitter feelings towards Trexler who couldn't stop smiling.
 
Six divisions will battle next week just like they did on Night Of A Thousands. The Top Gun Sprints return and they're going wingless. Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators will also battle.

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
