    #24 Danny Martin, Jr.
    The Top Gun Sprint Cars were battling not only for Top Gun Series points, but also for Double Points in the Bubba Raceway Park fund. The team-mates, Sport Allen and AJ Maddox, had the fastest cars at the beginning but it all went sour on lap 11 when Maddox stopped in turn 3 which resulted in the yellow. Under the caution Sport Allen pulled the 81 in ending both drivers nights within a minute. Danny Martin, Jr. took the gift and ran away with it. The only time the field caught him was on lap 20 when the caution came out for Tim Grubaugh after he cut a left front and stopped on track. Martin didn't allow a pass and held onto another win while Gene Lasker went from Ned Zone spectator to 2nd place finisher in a weeks' time. Robbie Smith, Matt Kurtz, and Mark Ruel, Jr. rounded out the top 5. Darren Orth was 6th, Stephen Darvalics 7th, Kerry Gilbert in 8th, Terry Witherspoon went home 9th, and Tim George took home 10th.

    With 7 men within 54 points before the night started the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks knew work was to be done. On lap 4 Harold Erickson and championship leader Jason Gamble got hooked together and spun in turn 1. On lap 6, top 5 runner Jonathan Gillette found himself going around and to the back. Jason Tovet spun 1 lap later and Brian Shea took some anger out on the turn 4 tire. The very next lap saw John Thorpe cut his right rear and with it saw championship dreams get a little further away. After Thorpe's misfortunes they went to lap 13 before Richard Calmes spun after contact with the lapped Jonathan Gillette. Calmes was given his spot back while Gillette made donuts in the infield where he would stay for the night. Time expired setting up a G-W-C but another caution dropped it to a 1 lap dash. Matt Schell led all but half a lap, but it was the most important half lap. Mike Stalnaker went from 25th (after a DQ for an illegal driver change in the Heat race) to 1st while Matt Schell had to wonder what could've been. Jon Layerd took 3rd while Vaughn Woodall went home in 4th and with some more points in that tight 7-man battle. Mason Love put the 70 in the top 5 with a smart drive. Brian Shea retook the points lead with a 6th place run and some misfortune by Jason Gamble who found himself spinning around, for the 2nd time, on the final lap. Harold Erickson was 7th, Glenn Baum an impressive 8th, Jimmy Holley in 9th, and Mark Trexler took home another top 10.

    The Gladiators put on the cleanest show of the night with just 1 caution during the whole night. Reid Christensen drove to the lead and led lap 1 with Steve Johnson in 2nd. Christensen pulled away and the only time Johnson caught him was on lap 10 when Robert Graham's 126 stopped in turn 2. Steve Cox lined up 3rd for the restart and Matt Kramer lined it up 4th with Billy Homes behind him. Christensen had a tougher job with Steve Cox on his bumper but he held him off again. Christensen took win #4 while Steve Cox had to deal with 2nd. Johnson was 3rd, Matt Kramer 4th, and Billy Holmes 5th. Robert Graham was 6th with a DNF and Brandon Haseleu was 7th, 10 laps down.

    Next week-end it's Double Points and $1500 to win for the UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds, Sportsman, Gladiators, and Florida Mini Sprints. For more information you can check out www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway hotline at 352-622-9400!
