    Matt Kurtz, Tim Grubaugh, Gene Lasker, and Danny Martin, Jr. who chose job security all rejected the choice for $3000 of Integra shocks. With his gift he can't lift but his car could and Gene Lasker rode the wall for quite some time on the backstretch and turn 3 at the start. Lasker climbed from the wreckage but he'll have some work to do. On the restart for Kurt Taylor's spin Danny Martin took the lead from Matt Kurtz. On lap 4 Ryan Partin spun bringing out another yellow flag. Another lap was run before Terry Witherspoon, Mark Ruel, Jr. and Travis Bliemeister made contact and Ruel spun. On lap 9 Matt Kurtz did something rare- pass Danny Martin, Jr. Kurtz held the lead through Brandon Grubaugh's lap 10 spin, Kurt Taylor's spin just 4 laps later, and Shawn Murray's spin. Time expired and it became a Green-White-Checkered but Tim George and Mark Ruel, Jr. touched after Danny Martin, Jr. had passed Kurtz and the flagstand. Martin held 'em off for the 1 lap dash while Kurtz went home best of the rest. AJ Maddox's run was overshadowed a bit by the battle at the end but a clean run in 3rd all night was what the driver needed after last time out. Tim Grubaugh stayed up front and went home 4th while Collin Cabre rounded out the top 5. Mark Ruel, Jr. managed to take 6th with Robbie Smith 7th, Ryan Partin 8th, Jimmy Ballew, Jr. 9th and Travis Bliemeister 10th.

    Amsoil V-8 Thunderstock action gets intense and they started beating and banging in hot laps. Of course, 6 drivers came in knowing they could leave with the points lead and that always adds fuel to the fire. At the start Jeff Baer took the 3 to the lead and Jimmy Holley took the 2H around bringing out a caution. On lap 1 Doug Webster found the wall and Jim Bethal, Jr. found the 121W when Jonathan Gillette made incidental contact. On lap 4 Jeff Baer spun fom the lead giving Robert Ray the clean air, with Gordon cade and Brian Shea in tow. The restart saw Jeff Stalnaker, Jr. end up in the wall and Vaughn Woodall lost the right rear ending his night and maybe his championship hopes. On lap 8 Jon Layerd "Ran out of talent" and hit the turn 1 wall. At this point Mike Stalnaker had driven the 8 past Shea after Cade nearly spun the 121 earlier. On lap 14 Jeff Baer spun identical to the spin 10 laps prior. The run to the checkers began and Mike Stalnaker toom win #3 in a row. Brian Shea took 2nd, Jason Gamble kept the bleeding to a minimum with a podium finish, Robert Ray finished 4th, and Gordon cade clawed back to a top 5 spot. Ryan Lasik was quiet all night and finished 6th, Harold Erickson was 7th, Mark Trexler took another top 10 with 8th, Jesse Corbitt finished 9th in his return to the clay, and Chris Watson went home 10th.

    With a $500 prize and Double Points there were 2 mind-sets: win and points race. A major headline was the fact that Ray Folwell, the points leader, didn't show up. That in itself gave Brittany Ytes the points lead. However, there was a feature to be run and on lap 3 Nick Hebrank found the wall and came to a stop just before the pit entry. Roberto Morfin, Jr. led until he pulled the 48M off handing the lead to Timmy Bronson. On lap 5 Eric Knight stopped in turn 2 bringing another caution out. A debris caution flew on lap 10 with Bronson, Chris Zimmermann, and Buddy Pope at the front. Just 1 lap later Kyle Kruse climbed the frontstretch wall and came to a stop when Eric Knight made contact at full speed. Neither driver was seriously injured in the accident. Bronson pulled away on the 4 lap run to the checkers while Buddy Pope again finished 2nd. Zimmermann was 3rd, Stephen Hahlbaugh 4th, and Jamie Burrows rounded out the top 5. Brittany Yates took 6th and a huge points lead. Kody Kinsey was rookie of the race in 7th, Ryan Babcock was 8th after a piece of the engine failed. Kruse and Knight rounded out the top 10.

    The Gladiators went caution free but the race didn't end at the flag. On lap 4 Reid Christensen took the lead from Ray Hunter and never looked back. The battle for 3rd was intense and Casey Feaster took the "Sexy Pink" Focus to 3rd. Steve Cox maintained some points with 4th and Robert Graham rounded out the top 5. Steve Johnson was 6th, Billy Holmes 7th, Matt Kramer in 8th, John Johnson 9th, and George Christensen finished 10th. However, in tech, the 30 car of Reid Christensen was deemed illegal which makes him ineligible for any points scored on the night. The disqualification gave Ray Hunter the win, Feaster the runner-up spot, and Cox takes a massive points lead after being bumped up to 3rd.

    Next week-end is the return of the RaceCar Engineering Late Models, Barrett's Race Cars Hobby Stocks, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks in a make-or-break $500 to win Double Points race, Mini Stocks, and Gladiators. The kids will also take part in the action when they go trick-or-treating on the frontstretch.For more information you can check out www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway hotline at 352-622-9400.
