Bubba Raceway Park Returns To Action With 360 Sprints On Tap

7-9-13. Ocala, FL- The Bubba Army 360 Sprint Cars return to the 3/8 mile in Ocala this week-end, as do all the fans and employees after a well deserved week-end off to enjoy with friends and family. The Hobby Stocks and Limited Late Models will join them, and the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks will battle for a $500 prize. There is also a Kid's Bike Race scheduled.
 
Robbie Smith has yet to win at the 3/8 mile, but he is our current points leader- if only be eight points- over "The Captain" Tony Agin who is also winless. In fact, the whole top 5 is winless as both of our winners (Matt Kurtz and Danny Martin, Jr.) have been hit-or-miss in 2013. Terry Witherspoon sits twenty-two out, but has rookie Andy Cobb breathing down his neck with just two points separating them. AJ Maddox is mired thirty-seven back after some bad luck, but it may be a hit-or-miss year if Kurtz and Martin are the ones to go by.
 
Tyler Clem, still happy to have a double digit age, is the Limited Late Models points leader with a runner-up finish to Tim Powers and a win last time out. Clem can't breathe easy as Jason Pope is just eleven back and Chuck Jackson rides a further eleven down the board. Powers is fourth, fifty-eight back, and Nevin Gainey sits fifth with half of Clem's tally as his points score.
 
Devin Walker has been phenomenal this season with a couple of wins to his credit and a 114-point lead. Brian Shea hasn't been able to keep chase as a couple of missed races for family functions has him stuck in that deficit. Hunter Gustafson took his first couple of wins early on, but has fallen to over 150 points behind Walker in the standings. "Crossover" Sean Monoghan is juggling an asphalt schedule with some dirt races and that has kept him from pursuing the title, but he always runs towards the front and that has him fourth over Dennis Williams. Williams has been selecting his races wisely, but just like Monoghan, he always runs towards the front.
 
William Gillam stole his points lead back, even if only by four points, after the last event. Brandon Elwood now rides second, but currently owns the tie breaker with two wins to Gillam's one. Melvin Fockler jumped up to third which shows the dedication and consistency he's had since getting thrown over 100 back after six features. Fockler is still sixty-seven out, but has scored the most points in the summer stretch. Tony Campbell now sits fourth, nearly one-hundred out, after a dismal week-end last time out, and Brandon Tillander has had to pull the back-up machine out to try to stay in the championship fight.
 
Racing is scheduled for 7, pits open at 4, and grandstands at 5. For more info, and to look at the schedule through Christmas, check out 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
