(Over) Twenty Years Of Trying

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-4-28 0465 resizeThe Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and the Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks put on 5 of the best shows of 2012 in 5 different ways.
 
Adam Higginbotham took the early lead in the Limited Late Model feature but Bubba Clem snatched it away after a restart. After a lap 9 caution the race restarted but on lap 14 Bubba spun his #14 as JO Nobles was barreling down on him. Nobles dodged 4 more restarts in which Higginbotham and Forrest Gough assaulted the 18 but couldn't make a pass. As the white flag was near display David Showers put his #18 machine in the turn 3 wall to bring out the 9th and final yellow. Nobles won the feature with Higginbotham, Gough, Late Model driver Shan Smith, and Eddie Gainey chasing him.
 
Hobby Stock action started with Howard O'Steen pulling away but on lap 4 Don Woosley's 81 found the wall and most of the pack had to take to the infield to avoid the spinning cars. Just after the restart Kevin Durden, Chad Scranton, Trey Cameron III, David Tyrrell, and Tim Gay wrecked in turn 4. Trevor Gamble made a pass on leader O'Steen after the restart and held on to it through a couple more cautions. "Shady" Grady Christian finished 2nd. Kevin Durden rebounded to a 3rd place finish just in front of Josh Bedenbaugh and Mike Stalnaker who barely made the feature through his B Main.
 
The start of the Modified feature saw Kyle Bronson rip the right side of his 40B off and with it his hopes of 4-for-4. Or so we thought. On lap 4 Bronson passed Dalton Lanich and began to pull away. Some minor yellows plagued the event that Bronson dominated. Lanich finished a strong 2nd with Garret Stewart, Jason Davis, and Jim Passino completing the top 5.
 
A few cautions kept the Mini Stocks close but on lap 10 Nick Hebrank flipped his #9H and stopped the action. What had been a great race for Kyle Kruse went sour during the red flag which left Travis Staats with the lead. The restart would signal 5 to go and Shirlene Hammond wasted no time disposing of the 1AR. Shirlene showed the boys how to do it while Staats was 2nd, Stephen Halbaugh 3rd, Nick Kerr 4th, and Charlie Staats completed the top 5. Travis Staats was disquailifed in tech, however, moving the field up and putting Kruse back into the top 5.
 
Thunderstock drivers couldn't hide their smiles after the race with a winner who they've all been waiting to see in victory lane for a while now. Brandon Elwood grabbed the early lead and fought with Mike Tovet until Tovet's wheel launched off the #30 and ended his night. Elwood fought through cautions and made it to turn 4 and he could see the flagman holding the checkers. All he had between him and the line was a lapped car but they made contact and wrecked the fence. At the line Justin Durbin beat out Mark Trexler by an inch; however, that did not count as the yellow light came on before the lap was completed. Elwood was given his spot back with Trexler 2nd, Jonathan Appleby 3rd, Durbin 4th, and James Sullivan III in 5th. The race was deemed unsafe to be finished and ended under yellow in the order above. However, in tech, Elwood's 28 was found illegal giving the win to Journeyman driver Mark Trexler who started his career in 1990. It marks Trexler's 1st career win and every man from every crew congratulated the driver. Elwood was disappointed but had no bitter feelings towards Trexler who couldn't stop smiling.
 
Six divisions will battle next week just like they did on Night Of A Thousands. The Top Gun Sprints return and they're going wingless. Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators will also battle.

HITENER CATCHES AIR TO VICTORY IN NeSMITH LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER

by BRP Media
Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL drives the #58 Dave’s Towing Special to victory on Wednesday night in the season opener for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL. (Photos By Trace.com)OCALA, FL – Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL bounced his way to victory on Wednesday night in the 40-lap NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series season opener at Bubba Raceway Park driving the Dave’s Towing Special. Whitener had to hold on through adverse track conditions to bring his race car home in one piece to take the win. Several inches of rain earlier in the week gave track owner Bubba Clem and his crew a challenge just to even have the track with a new clay surface ready to race on Wednesday night for the Rock Auto.com Winternationals season opener. A deep hole in the turn four surface developed with ten laps to go that sent the dirt late models airborne coming off the corner. “I race here a lot and Bubba and his crew do a great job to always have the best track conditions, so tonight was an exception because of all of the rain we’ve had here,” Whitener said. “I thought they did great just to give us a track we could race on early, but when the hole developed in turn four, we just had to get through it as best we could.” As the rut deepened in turn four, Whitener had a big lead over Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, WV in the Bland’s Towing Rocket. After Whitener bounced through the hole a couple of times, he… read more
