"Battle Between The Coasts" Brings the Best To Ocala

. Posted in Racing News

OCALA, FL-  As the new year gets underway the staff at Ocala Speedway has been busy organizing events for the annual February Winternationals.  This year's February schedule is expanded to include top quality racing action spread out over two weeks, plus a rare Sunday night visit to Florida's oldest speedway from some of the top drivers in dirt late model action from across the country in a UMP sanctioned, $8000 to win event.

February 13th will be the date for this unique opportunity to see the best of the best on the southeast's toughest 3/8ths mile in a 50 lap shootout dubbed, "The Battle Between the Coasts."  The race falls just after the late model Speedweeks events end at Florida's East Bay Raceway Park, and just before the scheduled late model events during DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park.  The timing and location of the Ocala show is therefore attracting top racers from both the Lucas Oil Series and the World of Outlaws Late Models, and putting them together for one night only on the famed Ocala Speedway located just off of I-75.  Adult admission for the event is only $25, making this a low priced, one shot opportunity for fans to see the best in UMP Dirt Late Model racing on the same track, together on the same night.  Fans will also have access to "Merchandise Row" featuring souvenirs from many of those top names in late model racing.

In addition to top late model action, fans will be treated to a $500 to win clash featuring Ocala Speedway's most competitive and exciting division, the Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks.  After a brutal racing season that saw the points championship come down to the last lap of the final race of 2010, the Amsoil Thunder Stocks will provide more of the same kind of hard nosed action that Ocala Speedway fans have come to expect.  And since the race will be open to any racer who opts to participate, racers from other racing divisions are setting up Thunder Stock cars in preparation to hit the clay and go for the cash.

Many top late model racers have already committed to appear at Ocala Speedway for the Sunday, February 13th "Battle Between the Coasts" including UMP Summer Nationals Champ, Jason Feger, and back-to-back World of Outlaws Champ, Josh Richards.  Earl Pearson Jr and his Bobby Labonte Motorsports teammate Brad Neat, have also expressed their plans to race, as has 2009 World of Outlaws Rookie of the Year, Russ King.  Others committed to appear include Darrell Lanigan, Frank Heckenast Jr, Justin Ratliff, Clint Smith, and Chub Frank, with others contacting race organizers on a daily basis to express their desire to join the field.  Further press releases will detail more racers who commit to appear before the race date arrives.

Bubba Raceway Park Results for 08-23-2014

by BRP Media
August 23, 2014, Ocala, FL- Florida’s number one dirt track was in perfect condition as cars rolled out on to the track for the start of their heat races. As Mother Nature threatened the nights racing action with a rain shower during heat races, Jimmy Flores and track crew went to work again to bring the surface back to life and complete the nights racing events. The fans that showed up and waited the rain out were in for a treat as the racers took to the well prepared surface. First up were Hobby Stocks with David Arivett (76) and Joe Forsyth (17F) starting on the front row. Fans asked if we would see a first time feature winner in victory lane, or would the only previous feature winner in the field, Rick Elwood (92) be able to take home his third feature win of the season. At the drop of the green flag Arivett would get the jump on Forsyth, but Forsyth refused to settle for second. Forsyth looked high and low looking for a way around Arivett. On Lap 12 Arivette would give Forsyth the inside line coming out of turn two, once there it appeared Arivette would push to the wall and spin bring out the caution. Forsyth would control the lead and bring home is first Feature win of the season, followed by William Edwards (08E), Elwood (92) Brandon Elwood (28E) and Arivett (76). Heat race winners were Cory Hupp (22) and Forsyth. Next, the Florida T.Q. Late Models roared out onto the track in usual fashion. It was fan favorite Terry Wright (007) to jump to early lead. On lap three… read more
