Double Trouble

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-5-26 9173resizedThe RaceCar Engineering Late Models ended the first of 3 Points Sessions as did the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models and 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks. The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators also battled but with no points on the line.

Limited Late Models started it off with a fantastic 16-lapper. On the start, however, Forrest Gough crossed it up and made contact with Kevin Mills. Both continued on but Tony Ponder, Ricky Land, and the McGillivrays found themselves tangled in turn 2. David Showers, Jr. led early but Adam Higginbotham took it at the line on lap 2. Just 3 laps later JO Nobles stole it seconds before Howard Osteen’s #80 broke and brought the yellow back out. On lap 12 as the leaders attempted to maneuver around the lapped car of Cheyanne Cox, Eddie Gainey made contact with her and as they spun David Showers had to take evasive action. Blaise Hetznecker crossed the 17 up out of turn 4 and made heavy contact with the wall. He was okay but the accident set up a Green/White-Checkered. The 1 lap dash gave Adam Higginbotham the shot he needed but Nobles held on. Higginbotham did finish 2nd with Forrest Gough, Kevin Mills, and Eddie Gainey in tow.



Brian Mullins led lap 1 but Jason Gamble took over from there. “Sheriff” Chad Scranton stole it 2 laps later but the right rear went down on lap 4 as Nick Leconte spun out of turn 4. Gamble, Mullins, and Grady Christian would restart in the top 3. Augie Burtram spun in turn 2 on lap 8 as Christian passed Gamble for the lead. On lap 10 Terry Dunbar spun in turn 2 as Grady Christian spun in turn 4 from the lead! Christian got P1 back as the caution was deemed on Dunbar. A 1 lap dash was set up and “Shady” Grady held on for his first 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstock feature win. Jason Gamble, Davey Kinsey, Brian Mullins, and Justin Durbin completed the top 5.

The RaceCar Engineering Late Models battled for 25 laps around the 1/3 mile Bubba Raceway Park and it started with Jack Nosbisch, Jr. out front. Mark Whitener, however, stole the lead halfway through lap 1. A debris caution came out on lap 2 setting Whitener up with Nosbisch and Richard Ferry in tow. Whitener caught lapped traffic on lap 6 and the next lap Nosbisch hit Whitener as he took the lead. As the 2 fought for P1 Bo Allen crept into the picture. Whitener began to reel Nosbisch in mainly in turn 1 but couldn’t quite get an opportunity until lap 15 when he did it in turn 2. Just a lap later Bo Allen lost the left rear in a heartbreaker. The restart gave Nosbisch what he needed to have a shot at Whitener but under caution Nosbisch’s right rear went down. The 2 Big Frog chassis would then restart 1-2 with Whitener over Christian Augspurger. Keith Nosbisch, Rich Pratt, and Richard Ferry. They would stay that way over the 9 lap green flag run as Whitener tied Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. on points with the win.

The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators were next with a 6 car 12 lap feature for all glory. Billy Holmes took an early lead and he never relinquished it. “Terrible” Tony LaPorta was 2nd with Casey Feaster, Randy Harless, and Steve Johnson.

The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks ran Feature #2 last to end a wonderful night of racing. “Big Frog” Augie Burtram was the early race leader but lost it on lap 8 when “Shady Grady” made the bold move after a 3 wide race with Burtram and Chad Scranton. Just 1 lap after John Thorpe slowed out of turn 4 and brought the yellow out with just 11 laps to go. On lap 10 Brandon Tillander spun the Appleby-Winne Racing #60 on the front straight and damaged the wall. Christian continued to hold the field off as Scranton, Jason Gamble, Burtram, and Alan Lane tried to earn their own glory with just 5 laps left. An intense battle ensued and on the final lap “Shady Grady” just lost it in turn 2 and Chad Scranton clipped him and sent the 36 around. Scranton held Jason Gamble off the final lap. Brian Mullins, Big Frog, and "Dairy Queen" Jonathan Appleby bounced back to complete the top 5.

Next week is the Powell Memorial, a special event for the entire Racing Community. Friday night will see the RaceCar Engineering Late Models and Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models alongside the Hobby Stocks and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators. A $5000 to win event for the Late Models but more importantly you are forever remembered as a Powell Memorial champion.

Bronson “Parks It” Again at Bubba Raceway Park

by Scott McAllister
Thanks to beautiful weather, Fan Appreciation Night and our annual “Back to School” Back Pack Giveaway, Bubba Raceway Park was packed with fans ready to enjoy some fantastic racing action. The Galaxy Fireworks Hobby Stocks were the 1st to roll out for their feature and Tim Gay from Plant City quickly made it known he was here for the win. It was Gay’s 1st appearance at BRP this year, but once he got out front, he never looked back and “parked it” in the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts Victory Lane. Mike Stalnaker had a strong run as always, finishing 2nd and Rodney Wright in the 99 car from Altoona crossed the stripe 3rd. Rick Elwood had a tremendous run after tagging the back of the field earlier in the race to finish 4th and DJ Nobles, who didn’t even make it for heat races and started in the back of the field, finished 5th. Heat races were won by Rick Elwood and Mike Stalnaker. Florida Mini Sprints brought out their usual breathtaking show with multiple “slide-jobs” on both ends of the track. Dirk Miller in the #68 Todd’s Tomatoes, Hyper Racing Chassis from Deland powered his way to another win here at BRP. He was hounded all night by Robbie Smith who eventually had to settle for a hard fought 2nd. Rounding out the top 5 were Danny Sams, Robby Hoffmann and Austin Craddock. The two heat race winners were Robbie Smith and David Hall. Modifieds rolled out 17 strong and it was quickly apparent that the winner would have to earn this victory.
