HANGOVER DERBY

. Posted in Racing News

web-IMG 3767The Hobby Stocks and Thunder Stocks took to the track for 50 laps and $3000 while the UMP DirtCar Modifieds and Limited Late Models put on spectacular 20-lappers for the crowd.

Limited Late Models started the night off right with Roger Crouse dominating all 20 laps of the event. He had to hold Forrest Gough and Tyler Clem off, however, through a few cautions. A 9 lap run ended the race with Clem learning from the veteran and cutting the lead down to about 2 car lengths at the checkers. Crouse and Clem went 1-2 with Waylon Haynes, David Cline, and Ricky Land the top 5.

Next up were the Hobby Stocks who put on a show for the ages. Devin Walker drew pole position and led lap 1 but Kevin Durden quickly snatched it away. Walker actually cut a left front tire on lap 5 which forced him to restart 25th! A few laps after the restart Tim Gay got around Durden for the lead and 6 laps later Tim Powers had jumped to the lead! They would swap the lead back-and-forth 3 times each up to a lap 41 spin from Glenn Baum. Baum collected Don Woosley with him and both got to watch the finish. Gay stole the lead from Powers who fell back to 3rd while Durden gave chase to Gay. On lap 48 the final yellow slowed the field with Gay, Durden, and Powers the top 3. At the white flag Devin Walker had jumped up front and 4 drivers had the checkers in sight. Walker wound up spinning to the infield while Tim Gay picked up a cool $3000. Durden, Powers, Grady Christian, and Brian Morgan were the top 5.

UMP Modified action was crazy as usual and Kyle Bronson was ready to show that he still owns the joint. Rich Pratt spun from 2nd on lap 6 and parked the car at that point. On a lap 14 restart Bronson spun while leading leaving Buzzie Reutimann, Roger Crouse, and Paul Snyder as the top 3. With 6 laps left Bronson had work to do- he did it and led the final 2 laps to take home another win. Crouse ended up 2nd with Snyder, Reutimann, and Barry Sheffield the top 5.

Thunder Stocks went at it last and the word of the night was survival. Jeff Stalnaker, Jr. started the night wrong when a yet-to-be-identified-by-the-driver piece broke and sent the #33 around. Joe Boyd, Daniel Keene, Ryan Lisak, and Jimmy Carter also found a piece of the action and only Boyd continued on. Chad Scranton held the lead until lap 9 when Jason Gamble used the high line to pass driver #27. As the pack neared half-way Gamble was overtaken by Jonathan Appleby as Scranton faded before just pulling off course. Cautions marred the entire night but the last 15 were accompanied by a light drizzle and sparks everywhere. Appleby refused to let anyone bye him and Gamble found out when he got squeezed between the #69A and the wall. Coming to the white flag Shane Nichols drove in and sideswiped Appleby but both continued on! Appleby took the big win, his 8th career victory, over Nichols, Gamble, Tommy Hill, and Ray Wheeler.

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
