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.

Bronson “Parks It” Again at Bubba Raceway Park

by Scott McAllister
Thanks to beautiful weather, Fan Appreciation Night and our annual “Back to School” Back Pack Giveaway, Bubba Raceway Park was packed with fans ready to enjoy some fantastic racing action. The Galaxy Fireworks Hobby Stocks were the 1st to roll out for their feature and Tim Gay from Plant City quickly made it known he was here for the win. It was Gay’s 1st appearance at BRP this year, but once he got out front, he never looked back and “parked it” in the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts Victory Lane. Mike Stalnaker had a strong run as always, finishing 2nd and Rodney Wright in the 99 car from Altoona crossed the stripe 3rd. Rick Elwood had a tremendous run after tagging the back of the field earlier in the race to finish 4th and DJ Nobles, who didn’t even make it for heat races and started in the back of the field, finished 5th. Heat races were won by Rick Elwood and Mike Stalnaker. Florida Mini Sprints brought out their usual breathtaking show with multiple “slide-jobs” on both ends of the track. Dirk Miller in the #68 Todd’s Tomatoes, Hyper Racing Chassis from Deland powered his way to another win here at BRP. He was hounded all night by Robbie Smith who eventually had to settle for a hard fought 2nd. Rounding out the top 5 were Danny Sams, Robby Hoffmann and Austin Craddock. The two heat race winners were Robbie Smith and David Hall. Modifieds rolled out 17 strong and it was quickly apparent that the winner would have to earn this victory.
