Florida State Modified Championship Halted For Rain

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-7-21 0719By- Jim Rouse, BRP Media, 7-21-12 Ocala, FL
 
The Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators were on deck but not everyone got to bat.

Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks started the night off with a bang as Buddy Pope shot to the top spot. Pope promptly lost the left rear wheel on lap 2 and collected Shirlene Hammond, Charlie Staats, and “Rockin” Reid Christensen. Only Pope would retire as he left Zach Amundsen the lead. Christensen spun on lap 11 which allowed the Staats boys and Nick Kerr to catch up with driver #20. He held ‘em off with Travis Staats 2nd, Charlie 3rd, Nick Kerr 4th, and “Rockin” Reid in 5th. Amundsen's #20 was found illegal, however, which gave Travis Staats the win! Hammond would jump up to 5th with that.

On lap 5 of the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models leader David Showers saw his #18 go up in flames bringing out the red flag. Showers was okay but the car would not continue. Phillip Cobb, Forrest Gough, and Carter Stokes would inherit the top 3 spots. On lap 13 Ricky Land blew up the 66 giving Nobles a shot at Cobb. Nobles made a pass for the lead on lap 14 and just as Cobb crossed over the yellow flew for a turn 2 spin by “Rowdy” Denica Hetznecker. As a storm brewed the pass for the lead was the winning move- Nobles was the winner!!! Cobb an unbelievable 2nd, Stokes 3rd, Gough in 4th, and David Showers, Jr. a wonderful 5th. Moments after the big lap 14 pass the thunder roared sending fans into a frenzy for cover. The race was immediately given the checkered flag.

The racing was called for the night as lakes formed everywhere on the track with massive rain storms. We will run the 40-lap Modified feature on September 14th, the date set for the 2nd Annual PJ Wiggins Memorial!

Next week the Top Gun Sprint Cars return! RaceCar Engineering Late Models, 1-800 ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Hobby Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators join them. For more info please go to www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400!

BLAIR OUTLASTS LEAKING TIRE FOR NeSMITH LATE MODEL WIN

by BRP Media
Max Blair of Centerville, PA celebrates his NeSmith Late Model win on Thursday night in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL driving the R&J Poultry Rocket. With a win and third-place showing in the first two nights of racing, Blair leads the NeSmith Late Model point standings. (PhotosByTrace.com)OCALA, FL – Max Blair of Centerville, PA had to outrun the competition and a leaking right-rear tire to win the 50-lap main event on Thursday night for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park. Blair drove the R&J Poultry Rocket to the $2,500 win and the NeSmith Late Model point lead. “During a caution period on lap 20, my dad gave me a signal that my right-rear tire was going down,” Blair said. “I worked the car back and forth, and it felt fine, so I just kept going. I was really sweating it out in the last laps of the race because I could really feel it going away, but it stayed up until right after I took the checkered flag.” Blair started out the evening by taking fast time honors with a lap around Bubba Raceway Park in 15.947 seconds to earn the pole position for the main event. Blair took the lead at the start of the race, but he had plenty of company throughout the race. The first nine laps were led by Blair, and then he decided to go to the outside to negotiate around the cars on the tail of the lead lap. That opened up the inside groove for Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, who got… read more
