In the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks we have seen almost everything- first-time winners, dominating runs, last-lap passes, worst-to-first runs. Their points championship ends on Friday, ending 1 of the best points battles of the season. Mike Stalnaker holds a slim 32 points over Scott Mooers after Mooers took a huge win and Stalnaker had some misfortunes. Chris Shea is 47 points behind Stalnaker which does leave him in a mathematical 3-way battle. Vaughn Woodall is the meat in a Shea sandwich as he's 49 points behind Chris Shea, and 24 ahead of Brian Shea. As the 2010 season has shown us so far, anything and everything can and will happen in the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks.
With 2 races left in the Gladiators, no one can tell what the battle will look like on the final night. We do know, however, that Matt Shea leads Devin Walker by a mere 27 points. Steve Johnson can mathematically only hold 3rd now, but he has been a key player at the front of the field. Johnson holds 30 points over Casey Feaster and wants to beat Feaster, a man with 7 more wins than him. Kyle Morse is 110 points behind Feaster and will do his best to take 4th in the points. The men -and women- of the Gladiators have put on some great battles this season and nothing less is expected.
Another great event at Ocala Speedway is the Powder Puff race. The women come out and race and put on a great show that is enjoyed by all. Last year's winner was Marian Berry in the #17. Last year's 2nd place finisher, Kathie Fisher, has a lot more experience after running much of the Gladiators season. Jessica Zackery, Romaine Hake, and Melony Shea rounded out the top 5.
Ocala Speedway opens the gates at 5PM with racing at 8. This event is a special event meaning ticket prices are as according. For more information you may call the Speedway or visit www.ocalaspeedway.com.
