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!

Results 6-28-14

by BRP Media
The first half of the 2014 racing season came to a close this past Saturday Night. The night ended in a bang with a lot of great racing action, to be followed by a beautiful Pre-4th of July Fireworks Show. The Hobby Stocks were first out for their 20 lap feature event. Rick Elwood (92) would find himself leading the first half of this race in comfort, until Eric Moon (18) made his way through the field into the second position. Once Moon maneuvered his way through the field and caught Elwood these two would battle it out for the top position for last 5 laps. At the checkered Elwood would win followed by Moon, third would go to Cory Howard (22), forth to Brandon Elwood (28E) and rounding out the fifth position would be Joe Forsyth (17F). Next up would be the Scorpion Performance Engine Modifieds to take to the track. The original line up would have Austin Sanders (64) and Paul Snyder (54) starting on the front row, followed by Buzzie Reutimann (00) and Roger Crouse (9) starting in the second row. Race control would then offer up a challenge to all 4 drivers. The challenge would be to go to the back of the 10 car field, If one of these 4 drivers would win the feature they would receive a $300 dollar bonus. Sanders, Snyder and Reutimann would accept the challenge leaving Crouse and Shane Nichols (65) for a front row start. Crouse would take advantage of the front row start and jump out to an early lead putting distance on Sanders and Snyder, but unfortunate luck for Reutimann… read more
