All For $1000

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-6-16 9519Joining the Top Gun Sprint Cars were the Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators and they were all looking for the $1000 payday!

First up were the Hobby Stocks for 16 laps. DJ Nobles led lap 1 after Mick Kulak had troubles from pole. Lap 2 was Mike Stalnaker’s lap to shine. And, lap 3 saw “Ragin” Rodney Wright steal the lead. Josh Hughes spun the Don Woosley 81 out of turn 4 on lap 4 to slow the feature for the first time. “Sheriff” Trevor Gamble and Kevin Durden were charging but on lap 6 Durden went around in turn 2 setting “Ragin” Rodney up in front of “Sheriff” Gamble and Howard O’Steen for the restart. On lap 7 Wright made contact with Gamble out of 4 and both went reeling to the infield. As 1+2 sat, P3 Howard O’Steen took the lead. Wright’s dive into 4 was deemed rough driving and was disqualified as Gamble pitted for a new left rear. At the half-way point a debris caution was called setting O’Steen, Stalnaker, and Darran Jackson up with 10 on the board. By this point Durden had rebounded to 4th and Gamble had jumped up to 8th. Gamble stole the lead from O’Steen on lap 14 but before they crossed the line a caution came out for RJ Glazer’s turn 1 spin putting O’Steen in front of Gamble and Durden. Gamble jumped the start and O’Steen didn’t like it. Déjà vu in turn 1- result: Gamble to the back because of a flat; O’Steen disqualified. GWC with Durden, Mark Maresca, and Josh Hughes the new top 3. Maresca spun out of 4 and Durden won under yellow. Hughes was 2nd, Mick Kulak 3rd, DJ Nobles 4th, and Robert Sirmons completed the top 5.


Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks went 2nd and had to fight hard for 15 laps. On lap 6 Jesse Foster’s solo spin brought the caution out as Nick Kerr tried to pull away from “The Terror” Travis Staats and Stephen Hohlbough. On lap 10 Charlie Staats and Hohlbough made contact and brought the yellow out. Kerr took an easy win as “Charging Charlie” finished 2nd. “The Terror,” Buddy Pope, and Keith Briggs put the brand new Xtreme Team 19T in the top 5.

Top Gun Sprint Cars battled for 25 circuits and it started with Robbie Smith up front and leaving Mark Ruel, Jr. in the dust. These drivers went 16 green flag laps before Andrew Griffin spun in a clump to bring the first yellow out. Smith led until lap 14 when Ruel showed why “The Peruvian Outlaw” is the points leader. Ruel used traffic to his advantage and led Smith and “Mean” Gene Lasker at the restart. Tyler Godwin spun out of 4 on lap 19 setting Ruel up in front of Smith and Lasker with traffic between them. Ruel won over hard charging Robbie Smith. Matt Kurtz, Collin Cabre, and Ryan Partin completed the top 5.

A wild 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstock battle occurred over 17 laps. Justin Durbin led early but lost it before the lap 5 caution for top 5 runner Mike Valdes’ spin. “Flash” Jonathan Appleby led but lost it before halfway to Chad Scranton. Appleby fell out due to a broken tierod on lap 9 as Jason Gamble had engine troubles as well. Mike Tovet stole Scranton’s lead at halfway as he jumped up 20 spots from B Main winner. On lap 15 James Sullivan, III flipped the 14 out of 4 setting up a GWC. Tovet, the B Main winner (he later said his only B), held off Scranton, fellow B Main transfer Dean Jarvis, Gamble, and Durbin. The 8th different winner in 14 features shows how competitive this division is and he did it from 21st on the grid!

A 1 caution race, halted only for Dennis Sanderson’s wild ride in turns 3 and 4, was dominated by the old guys. Sanderson barrel rolled a few times but immediately climbed from the battered 26X. “Old Fox” Steve Cox led the first half but faded late to 3rd. “Rockin” Reid Christensen finished 2nd because it was all about “Terrific” Tony LaPorta. John Moore and Robert Gullett, from opposite ends of the grid, completed the top 5.

Next week the RaceCar Engineering Late Models, Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and the Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks return to battle on the 1/3 mile!

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.
