Week 1, Day 2: UMP DirtCar Open-Wheel Modifieds

. Posted in Racing News

UMP/Dirt Car Openwheel Modified Feature Winner Kyle Bronson

Again the UMP DirtCar Open-Wheel Modifieds took to the clay as did the V-8 Thunderstocks and this time was for glory.

The V-8 Thunderstocks kicked off action with a 20 lap event. Davey Kinsey pulled out to a lead while Jason Gamble pushed his #02 to the front. Lap 3 slowed the action when James Sullivan slowed in turn 3 and came to a halt in 4. Kinsey had his hands full with hard charging drivers such as Mike Stalnaker, Justin Durbin, Brian Shea, and Eddie Lake behind him. Kinsey, however, pressed on and pulled away while Stalnaker, Lake, and Shea battled for P2. On lap 17 things got crazy as Lake got loose out of turn 4. Lake made slight contact with Mike Stalnaker who tapped Brian Shea towards the wall and on to his brakes. Shea barely missed the wall but lost his track position when the yellow came out. Kinsey kept the field at bay giving him the flag-to-flag victory giving the Big Frog Motorsports team a reason to smile. Justin Durbin took advantage of other's mistakes and his own skill to finish 2nd while Lake took a well deserved 3rd. Mike Stalnaker and Jason Gamble completed the top 5. Daniel Laird finished a quiet 6th, Jason Blackmer kept it in one piece and still finished 7th, with William Edwards, Gordon Cade, and Brian Shea completing the top 10.

Kyle Bronson, Jeff Mathews, and Scott Mooers were the top 3 qualifiers. Bronson set fast time with an 18.004 around Bubba Raceway Park. The first yellow, however, belonged to Buzzie Reutimann who came to a stop on the Infield 'X' on lap 4. Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. began to pull away while Jeff Mathews, Kyle Strickler, and Kyle Bronson began pushing through the field. At the 1/3 mark of the 30 lapper David McWilliams slowed and brought the yellow out once more. Lloyd again pulled away but was slowed on lap 18 for the Thursday night version of "The Big One" which involved Garret Stewart, Nick Hoffman, Dylan Shafer, Curt Myers, Chad Olsen, Rob Fuqua, and Scott Mooers. Some continued and some went no further. On lap 21 the battle for P2 ended when Kyle Bronson made incidental contact with Bart Hartman, albeit after Bronson had the car 90 degrees sideways, and hindered Kevin Adams. Lloyd and Bronson restarted 1-2 while Kenny Wallace and Jeff Mathews sat 3rd and 4th waiting. Bronson wasted no time and passed Lloyd on lap 22. Green to the end for Kyle Bronson while Lloyd, Wallace, Mathews, and Kyle Strickler completed the top 5. Olsen managed to fight back to 6th, Adams was 7th, Collin Thirlby put his #47T 8th, Hoffman finished 9th, and Scott Mooers put #10 in P10.

Day 3 of UMP Open-Wheel Modified week begins with hot laps at 6. Don't miss the action! Visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Raceway hotline at 352-622-9400!

BLAIR OUTLASTS LEAKING TIRE FOR NeSMITH LATE MODEL WIN

by BRP Media
Max Blair of Centerville, PA celebrates his NeSmith Late Model win on Thursday night in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL driving the R&J Poultry Rocket. With a win and third-place showing in the first two nights of racing, Blair leads the NeSmith Late Model point standings. (PhotosByTrace.com)OCALA, FL – Max Blair of Centerville, PA had to outrun the competition and a leaking right-rear tire to win the 50-lap main event on Thursday night for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park. Blair drove the R&J Poultry Rocket to the $2,500 win and the NeSmith Late Model point lead. “During a caution period on lap 20, my dad gave me a signal that my right-rear tire was going down,” Blair said. “I worked the car back and forth, and it felt fine, so I just kept going. I was really sweating it out in the last laps of the race because I could really feel it going away, but it stayed up until right after I took the checkered flag.” Blair started out the evening by taking fast time honors with a lap around Bubba Raceway Park in 15.947 seconds to earn the pole position for the main event. Blair took the lead at the start of the race, but he had plenty of company throughout the race. The first nine laps were led by Blair, and then he decided to go to the outside to negotiate around the cars on the tail of the lead lap. That opened up the inside groove for Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, who got… read more
