Mods Highlight A Hot One At Ocala

. Posted in Racing News

OCALA, FL- The hottest day of the year so far ushered in the racers and fans to the historic Ocala Speedway on Friday night, and set the tone for hot action from the Colortyme Rentals Modifieds, Ocala's Sportsman Division, the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, the Amsoil Synthetic Lubricants V8 Thunder Stocks, and the Gladiators.  A thunderstorm north of the track eventually cooled the air, put on quite a light show, and appeared to be moving toward the track.  But although a drop or two was reported as it blew in on the wind, it never had any effect on the racing except to make the night far more comfortable.

The Colortyme Modifieds got off to a rather rocky start with a multi car pile up in turn one, but everyone recovered from that incident and put on quite a race.  Garrett Stewart won his heat and had the pole for the feature race, and managed to lead the opening laps until Chip Owen began working him over.  Owen would snatch the lead away on lap 4 and hold it, but Jeff Mathews was coming fast and had his sights set on the #1 car at the front.  Mathews wrestled the lead away on lap 8 and held it despite repeated challenges from Chip Owen, earning himself a win.  Chip Owen would take second place behind Mathews as Kyle Owen followed Chip for third place.  Kyle Bronson and Roger Crouse rounded out the top five finishers.

Kevin Mills had the points lead going into this weekend's Sportsman feature race, but mechanical issues had Mills sidelined by the time the race began.  So with Stanton Mills on the pole the green flag unleashed a hard charging Danny Vogel who wasted no time in bumping Mills back to second place and taking the point.  From that point nobody could touch Vogel, and he cruised to an easy victory.  Stanton Mills was tough, but settled for second place, while Augie Burttram never really found the handle on the 58 car and finished in third place.  David Ponton placed fourth, while Dewey Hall scored the fifth place finish.

Dean Jarvis and Heath Walker have become rivals of sorts with the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, but misfortunes on the track sent both of those competitors to the pits and opened the door for others to steal the spotlight.  After some early contact gave Bubba Christian's machine a damaged nose, Christian began a deliberately patient climb through the field toward the front as Joe Boyd enjoyed leading the everyone around the track.  Daniel Miller Jr. would enter the fray and give Joe Boyd plenty to worry about, but would end up in contact with Kevin Durden in turn 4.  That incident would send Durden to the pits with a flat, and later Miller would tangle with Joe Boyd and end up in the wall, which sent him to the pits on a hook.

That opened the door for Bubba Christian, who charged to the front and held on for a win.  Brian Jerrels would make a late charge to claim second place while Tommy Ausburn followed in the third spot.  William Edwards avoided trouble and placed fourth, while Joe Boyd slipped to fifth after his incident with the 99.

The Amsoil Synthetic Lubricants V8 Thunder Stocks never fail to produce excitement when they hit the clay, and this Friday was no exception.  Scott Mooers rocketed to the early lead and looked tough to tame, and Michael Stalnaker was on the move early as he picked his way toward the front.  Polesitter Chris Shea would end up sideways in turn 2 and collect Mike McDonald and Chris Watson, which ended Watson's quest for the night.  Stalnaker grabbed the lead away from Mooers on lap 6 and Mooers fell to 3rd before mechanical issues parked the 10 car later in the race.

After struggling with his own mechanical gremlins in recent races, Michael Stalnaker over came all of that and notched another Amsoil V8 Thunder Stock win.  Following Stalnaker across the line was Eddie Kilbury, who had been relegated to the rear of the field and fought his way back through the pack for second place.  Gordon Cade had a strong night that resulted in a third place finish, while Austin Kirkpatrick could not repeat his winning ways from last time out and settled for fourth place.  Chris Shea battled his way from a 17th starting position to round out the top five.

Ocala's Gladiator Division has produced some very competitive racing as of late, and this Friday was no different.  Kyle morse started from the pole but was swallowed up by the field as the green flag waved and Casey Feaster shot to the lead.  Right behind Feaster was Devin Walker, who made some gutsy outside moves in an attempt to gain an advantage, but Feaster held his ground.  Walker eventually overdrove the car in his attempts to get around Feaster, allowing Steven Johnson to get position inside and send him back to third place.  Then things got worse as Walker's car suffered a suspension failure in the rear end and left on a hook.

That left Casey Feaster in control, but after some rubbing and bumping along the way Matt Shea came blasting into the top three late in the race. David Ladrie had driven a solid race but fell victim to Shea in the final laps, as Shea then went to work on catching Feaster.  But unfortunately for Chris Shea, he was out of laps and time and Casey Feaster scored the victory.  Shea followed in second place, while David Ladrie went home with a trophy and a milestone in the form of a third place finish. Steven Johnson placed fourth, while Jerry Taylor recovered from all sorts of contact, spins, and misfortune, to finish fifth.

Friday, June 18th, brings "Father Mows Best" lawnmower racing to Ocala Speedway as some lucky dads will square off during intermission and battle with real lawnmowers.  The Late Models will be on the schedule, plus fans will see action from the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, the Mini Stocks, and the Gladiators.  For more information on next week's racing action, visit www.OcalaSpeedway.com.
