July Showers Better Bring August Flowers. And Racing

. Posted in Racing News

BRP LogoBy- Jim Rouse

7/23/13. Ocala, FL- After Bubba rained out for consecutive weeks for the first time in his reign on the oldest track in Florida, we hope to get one week-end of racing in the books in July. The Florida Mini Sprints make their third trip to Bubba Raceway Park and the E-Mods, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators will join them for a fantastic night of racing.

Shane Nichols holds on to a fifteen point lead over Shane Taylor in the E-Mod division, even though Nichols has four wins in six features this season. Shawn Taylor makes it a true "name game" as he is stuck in third. Charlie Howard, Jr. and Roy Crain are 100 or more back, but they have climbed into the top five as they inch closer to the front.

Devin Walker has built up a massive championship lead over Brian Shea, but Shea has updated his equipment and could put on a rally that would challenge his 2011 Thunder Stock title run. Hunter Gustafson, equal on wins with Walker at two-a-piece, is third, but he must fight hard to hold off the challenge from Sean Monoghan and Dennis Williams. Monoghan and Williams haven't committed to a full season, but they always challenge up front.

William Gillam, Brandon Elwood, and Melvin Fockler have put on the best championship battle thus far as Gillam took his first career victory and holds a four point lead over two-time winner (both this season) Elwood. Fockler had a rough start to the year, but has out-scored the front two by nearly fifty points over the last two months. Tony Campbell and Brandon Tillander have hit some rough patches, but they still sit within 150 points with more than enough time to make it up.

Stephen Frankland, a six time winner in 2012, holds a lead of 168 points over Bill Southard as he chases his first championship in the United States. Tom Sheehan had a hired gun in his #75 last time out and they found some speed that could propel Sheehan to his first career victory and even into second in the championship. Josh Fincher has slipped to over 250 out and Tyler Bryden continues to impress, even though he's 280 points out.

As of June 1st, Dirk Miller holds a twenty-seven marker lead over Eddie Moss, Jr. as Miller chases his first title. Moss comes off of a trip to the Upper Midwest where he tested his talents against some of the best Mini Sprints in the United States, but returns to some pretty tough competition in it's own right. Nick Snyder sits thirty-nine back in third with a win to his credit at Bubba Raceway Park, David Hall is seventy-one out in fourth and Jody McKenzie is over a race out in fifth.

Pits open at 4, stands open at 5, and racing is scheduled for 7. For more info, please visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400.
