More Excitement Comes to Ocala

. Posted in Racing News

Ocala Speedway has a huge night of action this Friday with the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association coming to town while the Colortyme Open-Wheel Modifieds, Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks which will be attempting to win the $1000 prize, and the Gladiators will all run to gain ground in their title chases.

The Colortyme Open-Wheel Modifieds have had an exciting season where a driver just picks up and dominates. Jeff Mathews dominated through most of the summer, but the last 2 races have seen Kyle Bronson win and that has kept Mathews' lead at 43 points. A winner this season already, Wayne Hammond will keep Bronson on his toes as Hammond hopes to pass Bronson because they're separated by the slimmest 3 points. Tim Zackery will be gunning for some massive points as he's 124 back and the same from 5th place Garrett Stewart, 154 behind Mathews. Anything can, and will happen at Ocala though, and we could see a huge points shake-up.

The Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks have had a season in which some drivers have had really good luck and some have had really bad luck. Danny Miller found the other end of the spectrum as after he won and won and won, he had the ride of his life last month. Dean Jarvis has beat the gremlins, for the most part, this year and holds 41 points over Heath Walker. Danny Miller is 20 behind Walker which gives Walker some slight breathing room. William Edwards is 97 points out of the lead and Jody Wells is 140 points out of the lead and they'll both be gunning to hold their top-5 positions.

Mike Stalnaker has dominated the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks this year and holds 137 points over Chris Shea. Scott Mooers is 22 points behind Shea, but can't focus on chasing as he's got to hold Brian Shea back. Brian Shea is only 1 point behind Mooers and wants that top-3 points finish. Vaughn Woodall is 28 points behind Brian Shea and holds 39 points over 6th place. Woodall will attempt to hold his top-5 while chasing 4th place.

The Gladiators have had a great season of racing, but the points have started to spread out a bit. Last time out, Matt Shea, whom has put 30 points over Devin Walker, won. Casey Feaster is 3rd, 94 points behind Shea, but doesn't look to throw in the towel. Steven Johnson is 136 points behind Shea, but Johnson has recently hit a hot streak. Kyle Morse holds 5th by over 100 points which gives him a chance to chase and gain the 211 points he is down to Shea.

The gates at Ocala Speedway open at 5PM while racing starts at 8. Prices are as usual and for more information you can call the Speedway or visit www.ocalaspeedway.com.

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
