Dean Jarvis has the points lead in the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stock Division but Heath Walker is right on his tail and only 4 points shy of overtaking him. And that is how it looked in the last outing at Ocala Speedway, as Jarvis and Walker battled almost the entire race before Jarvis managed to win. Jonathan Appleby holds onto the third spot in the points race at 27 points in back of Jarvis. And a look at the DIRTcar UMP National Stock Car standings shows three local racers in the top 20. Bubba Christian holds the 9th place nationally, while "The Outlaw" Jody Wells sits in the 14th spot, and Mike Eubanks is ranked 19th.
It was not that long ago that Casey Feaster seemed to have the car to beat in Ocala Speedway's Gladiator Division, but in the last two outings Feaster has had to play second fiddle to EBD Racing's Matt Shea, who is going for three wins in a row this Friday night. Shea is currently fourth in the 2010 points race and climbing fast, while Steven Johnson holds onto the top spot after a less than spectacular race this past Friday night. Johnson had better not feel too cozy up there in the lead role as young Devin Walker is only 11 points shy of replacing him, and picked up a third place finish last weekend behind Shea and Feaster. Casey Feaster, who is currently third in Ocala's points standings and still searching for a solution to Matt Shea, is currently 17th in the DIRTcar UMP National Sport Compact standings.
The grandstand gates will open at 5PM this Friday night with heat races scheduled for 8PM.
