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!

Bronson “Parks It” Again at Bubba Raceway Park

by Scott McAllister
Thanks to beautiful weather, Fan Appreciation Night and our annual “Back to School” Back Pack Giveaway, Bubba Raceway Park was packed with fans ready to enjoy some fantastic racing action. The Galaxy Fireworks Hobby Stocks were the 1st to roll out for their feature and Tim Gay from Plant City quickly made it known he was here for the win. It was Gay’s 1st appearance at BRP this year, but once he got out front, he never looked back and “parked it” in the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts Victory Lane. Mike Stalnaker had a strong run as always, finishing 2nd and Rodney Wright in the 99 car from Altoona crossed the stripe 3rd. Rick Elwood had a tremendous run after tagging the back of the field earlier in the race to finish 4th and DJ Nobles, who didn’t even make it for heat races and started in the back of the field, finished 5th. Heat races were won by Rick Elwood and Mike Stalnaker. Florida Mini Sprints brought out their usual breathtaking show with multiple “slide-jobs” on both ends of the track. Dirk Miller in the #68 Todd’s Tomatoes, Hyper Racing Chassis from Deland powered his way to another win here at BRP. He was hounded all night by Robbie Smith who eventually had to settle for a hard fought 2nd. Rounding out the top 5 were Danny Sams, Robby Hoffmann and Austin Craddock. The two heat race winners were Robbie Smith and David Hall. Modifieds rolled out 17 strong and it was quickly apparent that the winner would have to earn this victory.
