Firsts And Thirds

. Posted in Racing News

IMG 8659Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Top Gun Sprints, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators battled at Bubba Raceway Park with some first timers and returns to familiar places.

On lap 1 Brian Jerrels and Mark Maresca made contact and brought the caution out while Howard O'Steen led Mike Stalnaker and Trevor Gamble. On lap 5 Tim Gay passed O'Steen for the lead which he wouldn't let slip away easy. A few cautions came out in the middle but the final yellow flew on lap 13 when William Edwards found the wall. A 1 lap dash gave O'Steen a chance but Gay held on for another win. O'Steen wound up 2nd, Stalnaker 3rd, Brian Shea finished a strong 4th, and John Clark completed a tough top 5.

After a quick lap 3 caution Mark Whitener made the pass for the lead on Garret Stewart right before Jeff Mathews race ended as his right rear went down and apparently caused more damage than just a tire. After a lap 14 caution for Jason Davis, Tyler Clem, and Larry Mott "The Killer" went after "The Magic Man." On lap 16 Bronson passed Whitener but 2 laps later they switched back. They again switched spots after another 2 laps and stayed that way even through the lap 23 caution for Charlie Hollowell. Bronson is now 3-for-3 while Whitener wound up runner-up. Buzzie Reutimann was a very quiet 3rd, Rich Pratt a strong 4th, and Garret Stewart completed the top 5 in the Chris Williams #2.

Tim Grubaugh flipped his #5 at the start. After that the lead changed when Matt Kurtz passed Brett O'Donnell on lap 2, vice versa on lap 4, and back to square 1 on lap 5 before O'Donnell flipped the #11. With O'Donnell now out it left the lead to.... Danny Martin, Jr. when Kurtz couldn't refire! "The Hammer' stopped once for a lap 12 caution but continues to prove that it's the driver and not the car. Stephen Darvalics put the #24 2nd in front of Mark Ruel, Jr., Robbie Smith, and Andrew Griffin.

Tony Campbell passed Todd Roberts on lap 2 and held the lead until he spun on lap 8. And then the caution floodgate opened. The lead, of course, changed and Brian Mullins was the recipient of the Easter gift. On lap 9, however, Scranton took a birthday present when he took the lead from team-mate Mullins. The final caution flew on lap 14 when Justin Dean stopped in turn 3. Scranton held on to win with Shane Nichols barring down on him. Mullins made sure both Cheater Racing cars were on the podium while Jason Gamble with "A Terrible Push" and Jonathan Appleby finished the top 5.

On lap 8 John Johnson and Justin Taylor crashed out which set up a 7 lap dash for "Terrible" Tony LaPorta, Randy Harless, and Steve Johnson. Harless passed LaPorta 4 laps later and held on to take his first ever win. LaPorta was a disappointed 2nd, Johnson 3rd, Joey Brinson finished 4th, and Bobby Graham finished 5th just in front of Kody Fisher.

Next race is Friday night for the Mike Peters Open (and Saturday night as well). Friday's events are a $3000 to win RaceCar Engineering Late Model battle with Limited Late Models, Mini Stocks, and Gladiators. Pits open at 4 and stands at 5.
