Night of a Thousands included the UMP Open-Wheel Modifieds, Barrett’s Race Cars Hobby Stocks, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks, Gladiators, and the Florida Mini Sprints Association. All 5 divisions put on a show with 4 taking their first win in the Bubba Clem Era.

A 20 lap feature for the Barrett’s Race Cars Hobby Stocks started with Trevor Gamble pulling away from the pack. His lead, however, was erased on lap 7 for Robert Sirmons and Jeff Sargent’s spin. Gamble led with Tim Powers and Bubba Christian in hot pursuit. The next lap Tim Powers brought out the caution when he slowed with a flat tire after incidental contact with Christian. Lap 12 saw a yellow for debris with Gamble leading Kevin Durden and Bubba Christian. With 5 to go David Walls spun the all-new 1W for the 4th yellow of the night. The 5th and final caution came out when Tim Powers, who had made his way back up to around 7th, and Scott Haas spun and got stuck in turn 4. The final 2 lap run wasn’t enough for the pack leaving Gamble with the flag-to-flag victory. Bubba Christian came across 2nd, Johnny Zackery 3rd, Brett Barrett 4th, and Kevin Durden 5th. Tommy Ausburn, Gary Medders, Joe Boyd, Buck Woodhouse, and Donald Woosley rounded out the top 10. However, Gamble was disqualified in tech moving everybody up. Bubba Christian was awarded the win and Robert Sirmons moved into the top 10.

Rudy Nonnemacher spun at the start of the FMSA feature bringing a yellow flag out. On lap 3 Steve Crabtree flipped his #5 but climbed from the car on his own power. The car, however, was not as fortunate. At the front it was 3 generations of Moss with John Moss leading, Rhea Lynne Moss 2nd, and Eddie Moss, Sr. in 3rd. John Moss broke on the restart handing Rhea Lynne the lead for a lap before Harold Matthews charged by. Just as Matthews made the pass at the line the yellow flew for John Moss’s stopped #44. On lap 19 Dylan Colding, running 2nd, found himself spinning around and 3rd place Chris Pacetti, along with 4th place Rhea Lynne Moss, also found damage. Moss, the last car on the lead lap, was the only to continue on. Matthews held her off on the restart and took that win he longed for at Bubba Raceway Park where he announced his retirement (again) as a winner! Rhea Lynne Moss was 2nd, Eddie Moss, Sr, 3rd, Nick Snyder an impressive 4th, and David Hall rounded out the top 5.

Jeff Mathews finally had the bad luck Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. had been asking for to claw back into the points battle. Only, both cars were stranded near Wildwood when the hauler had trouble. They did make it to the track on time for heats. Matt Permann spun on lap 2 bringing our first caution out. Meanwhile, Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. held the lead. On the restart Permann and Ron Burgess spun and the end it was for Permann on the spin count. Lap 3 saw Kyle Bronson make the pass on Lloyd. Lap 4 saw Bob Johnson hit the frontstretch wall ending driver #11s night. Bronson led Lloyd and Mathews at this time. Alan Reynolds spun the POW-MIA #8 on lap 7 and he would go no further. Mike McGauley, Jeff Bagent, and Cory Howard spun down the frontstretch at half-way to bring out another caution. McGauley brought out the yellow 5 laps later when he had a tire go flat. Bronson led Lloyd and Buzzie Reutimann at this point in the action. The final caution came out on lap 17 when Larry Mott spun the Z06 out of turn 4. Kyle Bronson is called “The Killer” for good reason as he dominated in route to his 2nd win in the Bubba Clem Era. Reutimann clawed to 2nd with Lloyd and Mathews 3rd and 4th, respectively. Rich Pratt rounded out the top 5. Garret Stewart was 6th, Tim Powers an impressive 7th, Jim Passino 8th, Ronnie Chance 9th, and Scott Moeers 10th.

If Mike Stalnaker, the winner of the previous 4 races, was beat by any of the competition, the winner would take a $250 bounty as long as Stalnaker finished on the lead lap. Stalnaker lost his hood and Marlon Durbin brought out the 2nd yellow when he lost power. On lap 1 Luke Sadler and Vaughn Woodall made contact sending both to the back. David Miller, Jr. lost control of the 21 in turn 4 sending him into the 114 of John Thorpe ending both driver’s nights. Jonathan Gillette, Tim Hughes, Steve Mooers, and Joey Durbin also received damage. Davey Kinsey led from lap 5-lap 8 with a caution in between for the stopped #15. The caution flew on lap 9 when Marlon Durbin lost his tire. Brian Shea had a tire go flat and the yellow flew again on lap 11. Jarrod Bennett spun on the restart so the field was restacked. The final caution came out for Bennett and Jeff Baer when they made contact and went around. Time expired so the Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks went just 14. Mike Tovet turned the luck around and took his first Bubba Clem Era victory. Davey Kinsey ran 2nd with Jeff Stalnaker, Jr. 3rd all night long. Jason Gamble and Gordon Cade, 4th and 5th, respectively, gained valuable points on leader Shea. Terry Dunbar was 6th, Jesse Corbitt 7th, Luke Sadler 8th, Gary Champion 9th, and Glenn Baum 10th.

Billy Holmes got the white walls he wanted but the contact with the wall wasn’t what he wanted. Another 2 laps passed before Jerry Taylor spun in turn 2. Kevin Underwood was pulling away from the field each time but had t let them catch back up. The 6 brought out the 3rd caution when he stopped in turn 2. On the restart the 87 made hard contact with the wall. Reid Christensen climbed from the 87 uninjured but his championship hopes were hurt. On lap 8 Tony LaPorta passed Underwood for the lead. On lap 12 Ray Hunter lost his tire and his chances at 3-in-a-row. Harold Lewis stopped the 48 2 laps later. LaPorta, Underwood, and Curtis Clark, Jr. were running from the field but the cautions kept it close. The final caution of the night came out for Jonathan Green when he slid into the wall out of turn 4 on lap 16. The end of lap 20 saw “Terrible” Tony LaPorta take the win, his first in the Bubba Clem Era, with Underwood 2nd, Brad fender, Jr. 3rd, Denica Hetznecker 4th, and Dalton Strehle 5th. Curtis Clark, Jr. had troubles at the end dropping him to 6th. Casey Feaster, Steve Cox, Brandon Haseleu, and Shane Guessford completed the top 10.

Next week-end is the Sunoco United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series Scott Thompson Memorial at Bubba Raceway Park. Also, Round 6 of the Top Gun Sprint Car Series is upon us, the Barrett’s Race Cars Hobby Stocks, Amsoil V-8 Thunderstocks, and the Gladiators for $300 and Double Points.
