Six Grand Reasons

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-5-19 9143Top Gun Sprint Cars, Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators battled for points and cash on Night Of A Thousands.

Hobby Stocks started the night off with a 20 lap battle. Devin Walker spun to avoid Trevor Gamble’s rare spin as Howard O’Steen, Mark Maresca, and Don Woosley led the field. Just 1 lap later Kyle Morse got loose and after contact with Ronnie Whitley he smacked the wall ending driver #82’s night. As the laps wound down it looked as if O’Steen had it but with just 4 to go the 88H broke ending the strongest run of his career. Rodney Wright took the win as Darran Jackson, Chad Scranton, Mike Stalnaker, and Mark Maresca completed a solid top 5.

The Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds were 2nd and a good show it was. Larry Mott spun on lap 1 from 2nd and took Scott Mooers, Kyle Bronson, Chuck Gustafson, Jr., Ronald Soltis, Mark Whitener, Jim Passino, Jeff Mathews, and Garret Stewart with him. The damages for Stewart, and Gustafson were terminal. However, Dalton Lanich was leading with Passino and Tyler Clem giving chase. Lanich started to pull away but slowly making ground was Buzzie Reutimann. On lap 11 Scott Mooers took the 10 around in turn 3 giving Reutimann and Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. the position to make the move on Lanich. With 5 to go the yellow flew for Jeff Bagent setting Reutimann up with the lead as Lanich and Lloyd gave chase. Those 3 stayed that way while Ronald Soltis edged Rich Pratt out for 4th.

Just as Dave Slaviak had the Top Gun Sprints up to speed Brandon Grubaugh had troubles in the G6 and brought the caution out. Terry Witherspoon tried to make a move on the leader and ran him over. Matt Kurtz inherited the lead while Witherspoon got P2 back and Mean Gene Lasker was 3rd. Rich Alexander lost the left rear wheel on lap 10 and he took Scott Anderson with him. Kurtz, AJ Maddox, and Witherspoon restarted in that order. With 5 laps to go Tony Agin put the 38 in the wall ending his night; Kurtz, Maddox, and Danny Martin, Jr. ran 1-2-3 as time ran out setting up a 2 lap thriller. Terry Witherspoon violently flipped on the backstretch as the race ended with Kurtz the winner over Martin. The race went back to lap 21 as the wreck stopped most of the field. Witherspoon climbed from the 99 as soon as they put it back on all 4 wheels. AJ Maddox took 3rd, Mark Ruel, Jr. 4th, and Colin Cabre 5th.

Rent-N-Roll Gladiators were 4th out and Brandon Haseleu took the early lead; it would not last however as he spun on lap 3. The lap 13 caution saw Jim Shaw hit the wall as Billy Holmes, Tony LaPorta, and Reid Christensen battled for P1. LaPorta fell to 3rd as Christensen beat him to 2nd while Holmes won. Ray Hunter and Steve Cox completed the top 5.


The first 9 were green in the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks but Alan Lane changed that when he spun out of turn 4. He also helped bring out a lap 11 caution. As Jonathan Appleby led Shane Nichols and Chad Scranton fought to beat him. Mark Trexler lost the left rear with 2 to go setting up the Green White Checkered. Appleby made it 2-for-2 while Scranton beat Nichols for 2nd. Brian Mullins and James Sullivan, III completed the top 5.

On lap 9 Nick Kerr went around after a tough battle with the Staats family. Meanwhile Shirlene Hammond was on another continent up front. The final 2 lap dash was set up when Cody Kinsey found himself around in turn 1. No one could stop Shirlene Hammond as she easily won over Charlie and Travis Staats, Reid Christensen, and Nick Kerr.

Next Saturday will officially end the first third of the 2012 season as the RaceCar Engineering Late Models get 1 last warm-up before the Powell Memorial. Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models join them as do the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks in a Double feature event!

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
