BRP 2016WN MJ 12X18 615

Lanigan muscled his way around Josh Richards and began working on Davenport by lap 13, and on lap 17 he slipped inside of Davenport to steal the lead.  A caution just after the pass bunched up the field again, and Lanigan took full advantage by using clear track ahead to open up his lead when the green flew again. But within 9 more laps the leaders were once more lapping the cars at the tail of the field, and as Lanigan picked his way through the traffic that lead was whittled down just a bit.

Ocala's Ivedent Lloyd Jr. had wound up in a dismal starting position on the 9th row in 18th place, but had patiently worked his way up to 12th by lap 10.  And the 21 car was still pecking away at the cars in front of him as the laps ran down, eventually finishing in 8th place on the night.  Meanwhile Tyler Ivey had started strong in a better position than Lloyd, but struggled in traffic and succumbed to worn out tires late in the race, dropping out in the waning laps and watching from the infield.

Darrell Lanigan proved to be too much for anyone to handle on the night and drove to his second World of Outlaws Late Model win in as many years at Florida's oldest speedway.  Josh Richards fought hard to hang onto second place, while Jonathan Davenport claimed the third spot.  Jason Feger and Chub Frank rounded out the top five finishers.

When Ocala's Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks hit the track the fans know that chances are that they will hit each other as well, and that process began early in heat racing on Friday night.  One particularly violent incident involved Jon Layerd and Tim Matthieu, who hooked up in turn 4 and together plowed into the outside wall head on.  That incident destroyed both race cars and heavily damaged both the wall and the guardrail, but after a stoppage for some patchwork repairs the heat race was able to continue.  And thankfully both racers walked away from the extremely hard hit.

Another red flag resulted from Justin Tillander's frontstretch tangle with the concrete wall that rolled his car onto its roof.  That incident happened just short of the flagstand directly in front of the majority of the crowd and quickly brought all of them to their feet.  Tillander walked away as the track crew righted the car, and after a slight delay to patch up the hole dug into the clay by Tillander's car, the racing resumed.

As for the 20 lap, $500 to win feature event, the race was dominated by Ray Wheeler, who fought off a hard charging Jason Gamble to grab his third consecutive Amsoil V8 Thunder Stock victory at Ocala Speedway.  Nevertheless, Gamble refused to allow Wheeler to win with ease, and even got himself side by side with the red 27 machine more than once, yet could not quite seal the deal with a pass.  So Gamble would settle for second while Chris Fontaine took a weekend off from Camping world Truck Series racing to place third at Ocala.  Jonathan Appleby was impressive behind the wheel of the 55W as he placed fourth, and Scooter Bare was the fifth place finisher.

Ocala Speedway is back in action next Friday night as the action packed Florida Mini Sprint Association comes to visit.  The Modifieds will headline the regular divisions and will be joined by the Amsoil Thunder Stocks, the Mini Stocks, and the Gladiators.  The gates will open at 5PM with racing at 8PM, and for more information fans can go to www.OcalaSpeedway.com.
