BRP 2016WN MJ 12X18 615

It did not pay to be in front while Ocala's Mini Stock Division was racing on Friday night.  Buddy Pope was on the pole and had the lead for a moment, before problems slowed his car and passed the lead to Blake Spencer after a brief caution.  Spencer looked to be in complete control but Keith Briggs was lurking just behind him and was in no mood to follow, wrestling the lead away on lap 8 as Johnny Zackery slipped into the third spot.  Spencer fell to second, then spun on lap 12 moving Zackery up behind Briggs.

Most fans probably thought that would be the end of it, but Keith Briggs slid sideways at the top of turn 4 and limped into the pit area, leaving Zackery as the race leader.  But the race was not over yet, and Zackery fell victim to a flat tire as the caution flew for Blake Spencer's motor expiring on lap 13.  Zackery would make the quick change in the pits and return to the rear of the field with six laps remaining, but Paul Combast was now in front and looked to remain there.  

Paul Combast held on and avoided the lead car curse to win the race, followed by Nick Kerr in the second spot.  Johnny Zackery battled back to third place, followed by Dan Kerr and Michael Oglesby for fourth and fifth.

The Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks took the green with Brian Jerrels on the pole, but Dean Jarvis wound up the early leader and looked tough in the opening laps.  But Daniel Miller had the 99 machine hooked up and ready, and began a multi lap tussle for the lead on lap 4 with Jarvis that lasted for four laps.  Miller grabbed the lead for good at that point and left the others to fight over second place.

Heath Walker did just that, slipping under Jarvis in an attempt to grab second from him.  But contact between the two would cause Jarvis to spin and sent Walker to the pits with a flat tire, as Joe Boyd now assumed the second spot.  Daniel Miller scored a convincing victory as Joe Boyd pursued him for second place.  Dean Jarvis settled for third while Heath Walker finished fourth, and Sean Babcock stayed out of the fray and grabbed a fifth place finish.

Fans have come to recognize the Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks as the most competitive division at Ocala Speedway, as a host of talented racers are almost always in contention for a win.  The only problem is that at the same time, the Thunder Stocks also are known for muscling their way around the track, so contenders are sometimes fighting for survival as much as for a win.

Jerrid Bennett had the pole and the early lead, but lost it on lap 4 as Mike Stalnaker made the pass on the backstretch.  Bennett slipped out of the top five as James Erickson, Jason Gamble, and Chris Fontaine, all made their way in.  Jason Gamble would later spin on lap 8, but recover to climb back into the front pack yet again by lap 12. 

Mike Stalnaker had the car to beat on the night, and no one else had an answer for it as he cruised to a victory yet again.  James Erickson drove an aggressive race to place second while Chris Fontaine grabbed the third spot.  Jerrid Bennett salvaged a fourth place finish while Jason Gamble overcame his troubles to round out the top five.

Colortyme Rent-To-Own Night comes to Ocala Speedway on Friday, April 16th, featuring the 2010 debut of the Colortyme Open Wheel Modified Division in their $1500 to win Spring Fling.  Ocala's Sportsman Division will also debut, and fans will see action from the Tee Pee Tire Hobby stocks and the Gladiators as well.  Fans can also enter the $5 raffle for a Colortyme big screen TV to be given away.  Grandstand gates will open at 5PM with racing at 8PM, and for pricing and more info please visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com.
