6/22/13. Ocala, FL- The Bubba Army Late Models, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and E-Mods all put on wonderful shows that kept the fans excited throughout the night.

Bubba Christian opened up the night from pole and he led through the first few cautions for minor spins. On lap fifteen, his Uncle Grady got around him and would not look back. Plenty of restarts kept everybody close, and with five to go it looked like Tim Powers had saved his equipment for the right time, but he got shuffled to the high side and never recovered. "The Altoona Assassins" put "The Big Lake Boys" back in their spots as Grady Christian led nephew Bubba across the line in a 1-2 for the Fastech team. Powers finished third, Dennis Williams ran as hisgh as second but slipped to fourth in the final rundown, and Brian Hansford completed the top five.
 
The E-Mods started off with three different leaders in three laps, Shane Taylor being the first of those three. Taylor gave way to Tim Grubaugh, Jr. only for Grubaugh to let David Whitener sneak in and steal the lead. Grubaugh and Taylor put the yellow out on lap three when Grubaugh got loose and spun both drivers out of turn four. Whitener couldn't be stopped as he won convincingly over Shane Nichols. Shane Taylor finished third, Shawn Taylor was fourth, and Daryl Larson completed the top five.
 
Darrell Padgett took his machine to the front for the Late Models, and he stayed there until Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. made the most of a restart to overtake Padgett on lap twelve. A few minor cautions set up a lap twenty-eight restart on which Kyle Bronson stole the lead from "The Professor." The final caution came out with eight to go after Tyler Clem's #14 stopped on the backstretch while he was running well inside of the top ten. Lloyd had the lead back by lap forty-four, and won the fifty lapper for his first win of 2013 on his home turf. Bronson wound up second, right in front of Jason Fitzgerald. Tyler Ivey and Padgett rounded out the top five.
 
The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks had an intense show as well with Randy Strehle opening up a lead after he drew pole position. On lap four, after working his way into the top three, Jason Gamble saw his night go sour with some mechanical problems on the Donnie Dobbins prepared #33. Strehle lost the lead to Grady Christian on lap sixteen and Strehle began to slip back a little after getting caught on the outside. Just two laps after Christian took the lead, Jon Layerd put the Tom Sheehan owned #75 to the point. A lap twenty-four restart allowed Mike Stalnaker to take the lead after he started in fifteenth, and he never would relinquish that lead. Some beautiful driving was shown when Ray Wheeler spun while riding third with a chance to win. He completed the 360 spin and was still in the top ten, but it did end his chances at the win. Tommy Hill passed Layerd with two-to-go and they finished that way, with Christian and "Big KD" Kevin Durden completing the top five.
