Double Trouble

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-5-26 9173resizedThe RaceCar Engineering Late Models ended the first of 3 Points Sessions as did the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models and 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks. The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators also battled but with no points on the line.

Limited Late Models started it off with a fantastic 16-lapper. On the start, however, Forrest Gough crossed it up and made contact with Kevin Mills. Both continued on but Tony Ponder, Ricky Land, and the McGillivrays found themselves tangled in turn 2. David Showers, Jr. led early but Adam Higginbotham took it at the line on lap 2. Just 3 laps later JO Nobles stole it seconds before Howard Osteen’s #80 broke and brought the yellow back out. On lap 12 as the leaders attempted to maneuver around the lapped car of Cheyanne Cox, Eddie Gainey made contact with her and as they spun David Showers had to take evasive action. Blaise Hetznecker crossed the 17 up out of turn 4 and made heavy contact with the wall. He was okay but the accident set up a Green/White-Checkered. The 1 lap dash gave Adam Higginbotham the shot he needed but Nobles held on. Higginbotham did finish 2nd with Forrest Gough, Kevin Mills, and Eddie Gainey in tow.



Brian Mullins led lap 1 but Jason Gamble took over from there. “Sheriff” Chad Scranton stole it 2 laps later but the right rear went down on lap 4 as Nick Leconte spun out of turn 4. Gamble, Mullins, and Grady Christian would restart in the top 3. Augie Burtram spun in turn 2 on lap 8 as Christian passed Gamble for the lead. On lap 10 Terry Dunbar spun in turn 2 as Grady Christian spun in turn 4 from the lead! Christian got P1 back as the caution was deemed on Dunbar. A 1 lap dash was set up and “Shady” Grady held on for his first 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstock feature win. Jason Gamble, Davey Kinsey, Brian Mullins, and Justin Durbin completed the top 5.

The RaceCar Engineering Late Models battled for 25 laps around the 1/3 mile Bubba Raceway Park and it started with Jack Nosbisch, Jr. out front. Mark Whitener, however, stole the lead halfway through lap 1. A debris caution came out on lap 2 setting Whitener up with Nosbisch and Richard Ferry in tow. Whitener caught lapped traffic on lap 6 and the next lap Nosbisch hit Whitener as he took the lead. As the 2 fought for P1 Bo Allen crept into the picture. Whitener began to reel Nosbisch in mainly in turn 1 but couldn’t quite get an opportunity until lap 15 when he did it in turn 2. Just a lap later Bo Allen lost the left rear in a heartbreaker. The restart gave Nosbisch what he needed to have a shot at Whitener but under caution Nosbisch’s right rear went down. The 2 Big Frog chassis would then restart 1-2 with Whitener over Christian Augspurger. Keith Nosbisch, Rich Pratt, and Richard Ferry. They would stay that way over the 9 lap green flag run as Whitener tied Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. on points with the win.

The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators were next with a 6 car 12 lap feature for all glory. Billy Holmes took an early lead and he never relinquished it. “Terrible” Tony LaPorta was 2nd with Casey Feaster, Randy Harless, and Steve Johnson.

The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks ran Feature #2 last to end a wonderful night of racing. “Big Frog” Augie Burtram was the early race leader but lost it on lap 8 when “Shady Grady” made the bold move after a 3 wide race with Burtram and Chad Scranton. Just 1 lap after John Thorpe slowed out of turn 4 and brought the yellow out with just 11 laps to go. On lap 10 Brandon Tillander spun the Appleby-Winne Racing #60 on the front straight and damaged the wall. Christian continued to hold the field off as Scranton, Jason Gamble, Burtram, and Alan Lane tried to earn their own glory with just 5 laps left. An intense battle ensued and on the final lap “Shady Grady” just lost it in turn 2 and Chad Scranton clipped him and sent the 36 around. Scranton held Jason Gamble off the final lap. Brian Mullins, Big Frog, and "Dairy Queen" Jonathan Appleby bounced back to complete the top 5.

Next week is the Powell Memorial, a special event for the entire Racing Community. Friday night will see the RaceCar Engineering Late Models and Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models alongside the Hobby Stocks and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators. A $5000 to win event for the Late Models but more importantly you are forever remembered as a Powell Memorial champion.

Results 6-28-14

by BRP Media
The first half of the 2014 racing season came to a close this past Saturday Night. The night ended in a bang with a lot of great racing action, to be followed by a beautiful Pre-4th of July Fireworks Show. The Hobby Stocks were first out for their 20 lap feature event. Rick Elwood (92) would find himself leading the first half of this race in comfort, until Eric Moon (18) made his way through the field into the second position. Once Moon maneuvered his way through the field and caught Elwood these two would battle it out for the top position for last 5 laps. At the checkered Elwood would win followed by Moon, third would go to Cory Howard (22), forth to Brandon Elwood (28E) and rounding out the fifth position would be Joe Forsyth (17F). Next up would be the Scorpion Performance Engine Modifieds to take to the track. The original line up would have Austin Sanders (64) and Paul Snyder (54) starting on the front row, followed by Buzzie Reutimann (00) and Roger Crouse (9) starting in the second row. Race control would then offer up a challenge to all 4 drivers. The challenge would be to go to the back of the 10 car field, If one of these 4 drivers would win the feature they would receive a $300 dollar bonus. Sanders, Snyder and Reutimann would accept the challenge leaving Crouse and Shane Nichols (65) for a front row start. Crouse would take advantage of the front row start and jump out to an early lead putting distance on Sanders and Snyder, but unfortunate luck for Reutimann… read more
