9-7-13. Ocala, FL- The Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, and 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks were all offered the big money with no car count limits and no entry fees for 30-lap events while the Florida Mini Sprints and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators joined them for a fantastic night of racing at Bubba Raceway Park. Also, over $500 was put up by wonderful sponsors in AP Motor Sales, Dirts 4 Racing, Jeremy with Rocky's Villa Restaurant in Orange Lake, American Choice RV, Don Milam's Auto Dr.'s of Ocala, Rick Elwood at L&R Racing Products, 100 Proof Saloon, Marion Machine And Tool, D&R Chassis, Mike Peters, and Davey Kinsey's Power House Machine Shop.
The Mini Sprints opened it up with Dirk Miller running away from the pack before Daniel Bagley spun his #12 on lap two. John Moss would steal the lead on the restart as Miller slipped to third. Nick Snyder would use a mid-race restart to steal the lead with just three laps left. On the final lap, Eddie Moss, Jr. attempted to overtake his brother John and the lapped car of Scott Kreuger, but Eddie clipped the entrance of turn one and went into a wild spin and easy barrel roll. Moss would climb from the wreckage under his own power. Snyder, John Moss, and Connor Borah would bring the field back to life for a one lap dash with Snyder holding off Moss, David Hall, Dirk Miller, and Borah for the win.
Trent Wilson used the outside pole to open up the lead, but Mike Stalnaker stole it from him on lap three. Devin Walker would see his night go sour as the #55 slowed and the field had a little trouble getting by him. No one would retire due to the accident, however. Stalnaker slipped in turn one and allowed Brian Morgan by on lap eight, just before Stalnaker did a 360 on the backstretch and stayed in the top five, an impressive feat. With eight to go, The Big Lake Boys went at it and Tim Powers scooted around Morgan for the lead, right before Devin Walker slowed and brought another caution out. Powers held on through it all and took home the $1100! Eric Moon, Morgan, Wilson, and Bubba Christian rounded out the top five. In addition to Powers' $1100, he received $50 in contingencies. Morgan received $110 and Wilson earned $20.
The Limited Late Models started off with Forrest Gough leading from P3. Tyler Clem would steal the lead in lapped traffic on lap four and he would not look behind him. Clem would never look back and he won by 1/3 of a lap over Nevin Gainey. Forrest Gough, Jamie Dayhaw, and Shane Koperda completed the top five. Clem would earn an additional $170 in contingencies (Gough got $10) to bring his total to $1270, a sum that Tyler will donate to charity as he always does.
The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks always teach us something new, and tonight showed us that seeing is NOT believing. Sometimes. Shane Nichols opened up with the lead, however Mike Stalnaker had it by lap three. A coupld of cautions for various incidents- including a debris caution for the right side of the E+Z Shines-sponsored #8's body- kept the field tight until halfway. The restart saw Stalnaker get away from Shane Williams and Mike's brother, Jeff, yet on lap nineteen it got crazy when Stalnaker's hood flew up right onto his windshield. For the final twelve laps, Stalnaker drove his #8- on a completely different line on the track- with the hood on his windshield. Better yet, Stalnaker would win the race by driving out of his window for the final twelve laps. Williams, Stalnaker, Jr., Eddie Lake, and Joey Durbin rounded out the top five in an event that every one will continue to hand down to their descendants. Stalnaker won $170 in contingencies and Nichols earned $10.
The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators finished up the night and Steve Johnson completely dominated the event over Stephen Frankland. Brandon Haseleu, Tyler Bryden, and Tom Sheehan completed the top five in an event that "Scooby" completely dominated from start to finish.
Next week the Nesmith Crate Late Models, Scorpion Racing Products UMP Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, TQ Late Models, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators invade the 3/8 mile! For more info, please visit 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
