PJ Wiggins Memorial A Success At Bubba Raceway Park

. Posted in Racing News

IMG 3529The Scorpion Racing Products UMP DirtCar Modifieds, Bubba Army Late Models, Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators all fought for cash and glory as they honored a great racer in Florida in PJ Wiggins.
 
Limited Late Models were up first and would start with Shane Koperda up front. Tyler Clem would make quick work and had the lead by lap two. A lap eight caution for a Ricky Land spin set up Clem, Forrest Gough, and Koperda up front and Gough made quick work of the eleven year old. Lapped traffic would begin to play it's hand, but Gough managed it and held the gap over Richard Ferry and Clem as the 25-lapper progressed. Gough would hold on to grab his first win at Bubba Raceway Park over Ferry, Clem, Koperda, and Ricky Land.
 
The Hobby Stocks saw Scotty Kay, Jr. lead the opening stint which included a wreck between Devin Walker, Chuck Cessna, and Heath Walker that saw the latter two retire. Eric Moon would rocket past Kay on lap ten and pull away, even through a couple of cautions for solo spins. As Moon entered turns three and four, the lapped car of John Florkowski would be present and Moon slipped and spun into the infield. Scotty Kay, Jr. was nearly two seconds back, but would pass the idle car of Moon and claim his first career win at Bubba Raceway Park and he buried the nickname of "Perennial Bridesmaid."
 
Bryan Bernhardt opened up a lead in the Bubba Army Late Models but the gap would disappear when Mark Whitener made contact with Kyle Bronson as they raced for third. Whitener would go to the tail; Bronson would restart behind Bernhardt and John Kellum. Kellum would take it to the high side and grab the lead, but spun in front of the pack and would go to the tail and take Bryan Bernhardt with him; Bronson would be the leader over Brandon DeWitt and Roger Crouse. DeWitt used the restart to grab the lead from Bronson before the caution came out for Travis Carter on the backstretch. DeWitt would never look back and grabbed his first career win at Bubba Raceway Park! Mark Whitener would finish runner-up over Kyle Bronson, Roger Crouse, and Keith Nosbisch. DeWitt, however, would be disqualified due to an illegal spoiler and handed the win to Whitener for his third win of 2013. Bronson, Crouse, Nosbisch, and Rich Pratt completed the top five.
 
The PJ Wiggins Memorial opened up their 40-lapper with Austin Sanders opening the gap over Buzzie Reutimann. Kyle Bronson would bring the yellow out on lap twelve and would be stuck in traffic with 28 to go. Paul Snyder would snatch the lead from Sanders' hands on the restart but inaugural PJ Wiggins Memorial champion Rich Pratt was barreling down on him. Yellow would fly with 16 to go and Snyder had Pratt and Kyle Bronson to hold off. Paul Snyder would stave off the fight from the first two winners and etch his name in the record books as a winner of the PJ Wiggins Memorial. Rich Pratt and Kyle Bronson completed the podium while Roger Crouse and Garret Stewart completed the top five.
 
The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators finished up the night and Stephen Frankland picked up an easy win over Brandon Haseleu and Charlie King, Jr.
 
Next week is the annual Spooktacular with Night of a Thousands for the Limited Sprints, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, TQ Late Models, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators. There will be a Trick-or-Treat for the kids as well as a haunted house. For more info, please visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400!
