Spooktacular Action At Bubba Raceway Park

. Posted in Racing News

IMG 3922By- Jim Rouse
10/26/13. Ocala, FL- The Limited Sprints, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, TQ Late Models, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators all took to the track with a spooky theme on board the property.

Hobby Stocks opened up the show with Mike Stalnaker the leader as Eric Moon chasing him until Moon’s rocketship stalled out on lap four. At the halfway point the caution would fly for the stopped car of Cory Hupp; Stalnaker would have to fend off Jon Layerd and Trey Cameron, III for the lead. Stalnaker would hold on for his third win of 2013 as Trey Cameron, III and Rebecca Paugh took career best finishes with second and third, respectively. Charles Cantley and Cory Hupp completed the top five.

TQ Late Models would attack the track next and ten-year old Austin Strosahl would lead lap one. John Hopke would steal the lead on lap two and proceed to pull away from the pack. After a few cautions Dave Rader would jump to the lead and leave John Hopke in his tire tracks. As Terry Wright fought for the lead with Rader, Wright spun the #007 machine around and had to go back to the tail. Dave Rader would win a shortened event to keep the division with no repeat winners. John Hopke would end up second over Austin Strosahl, Sean Babcock, and Kevin McKenzie.

The Limited Sprints went out third and Mark Ruel, Jr. opened up the gap over Tyler Godwin and Danny Martin, Jr. On lap fifteen, as he ran fifth, “Captain” Tony Agin would cross the #38 up in turn four and allow Godwin and Martin another shot at Ruel up front. Ruel would not be denied as he took a commanding victory over Godwin, Martin, Steve Darvalics, and Terry Witherspoon.

The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks put on a fantastic event with Shane Nichols leading early on. A few cautions would slow his progress and keep Jonathan Appleby, Jason Gamble, and Brandon Elwood on his tail. It would be lap 12 before one- Appleby- would take advantage of a slip-up from Nichols and put his nose in the lead. Appleby would hold on to win a caution-marred event over Elwood, Gamble, William Gillam, and Mark Trexler.

The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators had quite a battle for second as Robert Gullett pulled out to a massive lead and never looked back. Brandon haseleu would get the better of Stephen Frankland for second while Tyler Bryden finished fourth.

Next week the Bubba Army Late Models return as well as the Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds. Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and the Florida Mini Sprints will also help open up November! For more info please visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400!

(photosbytrace.com)OCALA, FL – Walker Arthur of Forest, VA won an action-packed 10th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series on Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park driving the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. Arthur had to go to the back of the pack early in the 100-lap race, but put on a show getting back to the front. After a ten-lap side-by-side battle for the lead with Keith Nosbisch of Valrico, FL, Arthur took the lead for good on lap 76 and never looked back to claim the top prize of $10,000. Arthur said he made the right choice on tires, even though he second guessed himself just before the race started. “We had the right tire combination tonight, as we had a little harder tire on the right-rear than most everyone else did,” Arthur said. “Just before the race, I wasn’t sure that it wasn’t too hard, and I wanted to change it while they were doing driver introductions.
