1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstock action is always a headliner and has produced plenty of drama. Jonathan Appleby has dodged it all and leads the points yet continues the trend of winless points leaders in this division. Appleby will continue his fight as will Brian Mullins. A 30 point deficit stares Mullins in the face but that can be made up quickly. Jason Gamble is trying to spoil the party in his Certified Automotive Repair #21 and hopes to soon start the fight for 1-2 C.A.R. finishes with team-mate Brandon Tillander. Gamble will have to hold off hard charging Shane Nichols and Justin Durbin if he wants to keep his spot. These along with the rest of the field will have to dethrone Mark Trexler and Chad Scranton, however, as they have won 4 of the 5 combined starts they've both made in 2012. Anything can happen in the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks!
Buddy Pope has company. At least, Shirlene Hammond has joined him as a winner in the Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks of 2012. Pope has a sizable lead over Kyle Kruse, Reid Christensen, Charlie Staats, and Nick Kerr and hopes to hold on to it. As the field has grown so has the close quarters racing and nothing less is expected over the rest of the season.
Steve Johnson finally broke through and took his first checkered flag after holding off Tony LaPorta as he's doing in the points. As those 2 battle Randy Harless is trying to make up some early season points troubles. Those 3 each have 1 feature win and Steve Cox, currently 5th, is separated from the group only by Reid Christensen who very likely could join them this week. Gladiator action isn't limited just to these 5 as every driver has a shot at victory and they can all impress with a win.
Pits open at 4 while stands open at 5. Racing is scheduled for 7. For more information you can go to www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway at 352-622-9400!
