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!

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
