Joining the RaceCar Engineering Late Models were the Scorpion Racing Products, Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and a Spectator Race!

First up were the Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds and what a 20-lapper it was! A 7 lap green flag run dominated by Kyle Bronson was stopped when the lapped car of Larry Mott spun in turn 4. A 9 lap run ended when Buzzie Reutimann slowed and was spun by Jason Davis by no fault of his own. The final 4 were green as Bronson held Devin Dixon off for the victory. Jeff Mathews barely held Rich Pratt off for 3rd and Dalton Lanich finished 5th on his birthday.

The First Annual Florida State Late Model Championship presented the best of the RaceCar Engineering Late Models and the Sunoco/Buddy’s Home Furnishings United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series over 70 laps for a big ring. Jack Nosbisch, Jr. had a wrap on things early but on lap 13 he slowed and stopped giving the lead to Tyler Ivey. The first caution came just 2 laps later when Jason Burke spun in turn 1 with a flat tire. Ivey would restart in front of Devin Dixon and Mark Whitener. Andy Cobb spun in turn 4 on lap 24 with Ivey, Whitener, and Dixon in tow. As the field approached half-way Ivey continued to hold hard-charging Whitener off before a lap 31 yellow for Brandon Cameron’s spin in turn 4 halted action again. On the restart Whitener got Ivey and started to pull away but Ivey came right back. With 30 to go Brett Carlton slowed when his right rear shredded setting Whitener, Ivey, and “Showtime” Shan Smith up for the restart. Debris brought out a caution with just 11 to go. Whitener won by half-a-car after Smith went side by side with him and actually led 3 of the final 11. Randy Weaver, Jeff Mathews, and Tyler Ivey completed the top 5.

Specators had to live up to the Late Model feature and they gave it a shot. After 12 entered, a finale of just 2 saw Todd Ford dominate in his Mustang as Marty Rohn couldn’t come close in his Dodge Ram. Ford is now 2-0 when he attempts the Spectator Races.

Limited Late Models started off rough when pole sitter Devin Dixon spun and was jacked up when Paul Shead had nowhere to go but into the 11 car. Ricky Land and Forrest Gough were also involved. On lap 3 Adam Higginbotham and the McGillivrays found themselves tangled up in turn 4. Just a lap later points leader Eddie Gainey took his #8 around. Up front “Budda” Kyle Chappell was leading David Showers, Jr. and Forrest Gough. A lap 8 incident saw Blaise Hetznecker and David Showers make contact; both were sent to the tail. The restart saw Hetznecker, Cheyanne Cox, Shane Koperda and others around with damage in turn 1. Green-White-Checkered would settle this one between ‘Budda’ and David Showers, Jr. Budda made it easy as Gough, Showers, Steve Shead, and Ricky Land completed the top 5.

1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks were the finale and what a show they put on. Chad Scranton and “DQ” Jonathan Appleby fought over the lead for the first 2 but “DQ” started to pull away. Meanwhile, Brandon Elwood and Grady Christian were fighting through the field. Eddie Woodall spun the Woodall Fencing machine in turn 2 on lap 11 setting Appleby, Scranton, and “Shady Grady” up for the restart. Scranton, however, broke the rear axle and “Shady Grady” spun on lap 16 setting up what would be a Green-White-Checkered with Appleby, John Thorpe, and James Sullivan, III up front. Appleby held ‘em off while Thorpe valiantly fought. Brian Mullins, Jason Gamble, and Sullivan completed the top 5.

Next week the Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds return as do the Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators. For more information you can visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway at 352-622-9400!
