Racing Under The Harvest Moon

. Posted in Racing News

On a night where the Colortyme Open Wheel Modifieds headlined the night, the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association showed off their impressive cars, and the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks ran for a $1000 dollar prize, there just happened to be a full moon. There was also some great racing from the Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks and the Gladiators.

The Tee Pee Tire Hobby Stocks, in their first race in over a month, would race first on this night and set the fans up for plenty of great battles on the night. Danny Miller, in his first race back since his terrible flip, Dean Jarvis, Heath Walker, and "Dough Boy" Patrick Williams were all fighting at the top for the first 18 laps. On lap 18, Dean Jarvis fell back with engine trouble and a yellow came out at that time. The final 2 lap battle was a real thriller and "Dough Boy" took a great win, followed by Heath Walker, Danny Miller, Billy Meadors, and Ronald Lentz.


DAARA, the Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association, put on a show that could remind you of the first event at Ocala Speedway way back in 1952. With cars that have raced since 1936 to cars from the 1970s; and 26 year olds to 76 year olds driving, everything and anything was out there. Bob Jordan in his blue 1947 Kortis Kraft Midget won the Midget race, Ronald Hess in his orange 1939 Chevy won the Modified race, and Captain Jack Sapp in his yellow '60s Ward Watson won the Sprint race.

The $1000 to win Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks feature brought 31 cars out which led to a B Main. In the B Main, Eddie Kilbury, Willard Driggers, Eddie Lentz, and Jonathan Appleby earned the transfer spots and Vaughn Woodall moved in to the A Main through points position. The Feature had some excitement going on, as Chris Shea was working his way up from mid-pack. On lap 13, Shea got loose and Mike McDonald barely tapped Shea while trying to avoid him, which finished off Shea's loop. On a restart, Mike Stalnaker looped it in turn 2 and Jesse Corbitt had nowhere to go except right into Stalnaker's door. On the lap 17 restart, Jonathan Gillette did a 'tornado spin' in turn 4 which collected Richard Calmes, Chris Shea and Vaughn Woodall. At the end of the night, Scott Mooers outlasted the rest to take home the $1000, Robert Ray again finished runner-up, Jason Gamble finished 3rd, Steve Mooers was 4th, and Mike McDonald worked his way back up to 5th.

The Colortyme Open Wheel Modifieds had a fun night on the dirt with 1 major car swap: Kyle Bronson and Wayne Hammond. They switched cars for the night and it paid off. The race up front was between Kyle Bronson, Charlie MacNichols, Buzzy Reutimann, and Jeff Mathews with 2nd-4th switching continuously. Mathews didn't have it easy, though, as he spun in turn 4 on lap 5. As the race neared its end, Reutimann passed MacNichols and Mathews passed both of them! No catching "The Killer" Kyle Bronson and he won his 3rd straight at Ocala, followed by Jeff Mathews, Buzzy Reutimann, Charlie MacNichols, and Larry Burkins rounding out the top 5.

The final event of the night was the Gladiators and they put a great show on with some good surprises at the end. On lap 1, James McCloud rolled the 57 in turn 2 and a flat tire was all that stopped him from staying out on the track. After the clean-up, Casey Feaster, in the 51 of Nathan Rhodes, had a problem on the left-front which pushed the car right into the turn 1 wall. On lap 6, more front runners, Jerry Taylor and Kyle Morse had a problem in turn 2 and the damage was evident on Morse's driver side door. At the end, Matt Shea beat Devin Walker for first and Steve Johnson was coasting for 3rd when he slowed on the front stretch. Kathie Fisher had gradually moved up and was set for another top 5, but when Johnson slowed, Fisher jumped at the opportunity and got her first trophy on the night after her birthday. Ken McCloud was able to get around Johnson for 4th and Johnson did get 5th.

Ocala Speedway has kids costume contest this up-coming Friday along with the Late Models, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks, Mini Stocks, and Gladiators. For more information or to see the complete schedule you may call the Speedway or visit www.ocalaspeedway.com.
