Ocala Speedway Winternationals Taking Shape

. Posted in Racing News

With the Second Annual Ocala Speedway Winternationals a mere twenty days away, word from the O'Reilly Auto Parts All Star Circuit of Champions is that a spectacular field of the top 410 sprint car racers in America is poised to kick off the 2010 racing season. The races at Ocala Speedway will be the first opportunity for the teams to experience real race conditions, thus making the Ocala Speedway events very attractive to the top teams, and as was the case last season at Ocala, The O'Reilly All Stars have opened the door to allow teams from the World of Outlaws to join then for some early season head to head competition.

So who might show up at Ocala Speedway at the end of January? While no "official" word as to exactly who will be there to race, word has "unofficially" leaked out as to the intentions of some heavy hitters. Danny "The Dude" Lasoski was in attendance last season and is likely to be back this time around. After all, Lasoski now lives in the area when he is not racing, so why not enjoy racing and be able to go home afterward and sleep in his own bed for a change?

According to the "Official TSR Fan Page" (Tony Stewart Racing) on Facebook, Donny Shatz and Steve Kinser will be at Ocala Speedway this time around. The page lists the Ocala Speedway Winternationals as their first domestic scheduled event in 2010 (Shatz is currently touring and racing in Australia) and invites Tony Stewart Racing fans to come to Ocala. This will be Steve Kinser's first year with Tony Stewart Racing and a great chance for fans to see this much talked about union between Stewart and one of the most successful racers on the circuit.

In addition to the O'Reilly Auto Parts All Star Circuit of Champions and the other 410 sprint car teams that will join them for the event, Ocala Speedway is proud to announce that the Florida Mini Sprint Association has chosen the Ocala Winternationals as the time and place for their Winter Shootout. The Florida Mini Sprints are quite familiar to the loyal fans at Ocala Speedway, and will bring their best to compete opposite of the best of the big boys.

The Ocala Speedway Winternationals will be held on Friday and Saturday, January 29th and 30th. A more complete schedule of events, plus ticket prices and other info, will be posted at www.OcalaSpeedway.com within the next week or so. The Winternationals will also feature open practice sessions that will be open to the public. Times, dates, and admission costs for practice will be announced soon. Media requests should be faxed to Ocala Speedway at 352-622-3126. Media credentials will be granted at the discretion of the speedway owners. To contact Ocala Speedway directly for information, call 352-622-9400.

DARLAND STRETCHES NATIONAL WIN STREAK TO 23 YEARS WITH SUNDAY OCALA WIN

by BRP Media
Ocala, Florida…….Dave Darland added to the most impressive streak in USAC history on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park, as he added another AMSOIL National Sprint Car win to his list and made it 23 consecutive seasons with at least one win in a USAC National series. The Lincoln, Indiana veteran’s all-time record 54th National Sprint Car win came in flag-to-flag fashion aboard the Phillips Motorsports – Trench Shoring #71P DRC/Foxco. “My crew had to work their asses off just to get the car ready for the feature after some issues in the heat race and then gave me a great car even without having much chance to keep up with the track. We have just had some bad luck out of the gate, but tonight was a great way to rebound. It’s good to be down here while it’s snowing at home, and I can drink a beer to celebrate while it’s warm outside. And it’s good to get my first win in the state of Florida!” Darland said. Darland led at the start over polesitter Chris Windom, while Robert Ballou was the early man on the move, jumping into the top-five in just a few laps after starting tenth. A red flag on lap six brought things to a screeching halt as Brady Short flipped hard into turn three and collected Landon Simon. Neither driver was hurt. After a tangle on the ensuing restart, Ballou found himself bringing out the next caution as he slid to a stop in turn-three, giving up the fifth spot but restarting at the tail. Under that caution, defending champion and current point leader Brady Bacon… read more
