All For $1000

. Posted in Racing News

REW-BubbaRP-6-16 9519Joining the Top Gun Sprint Cars were the Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators and they were all looking for the $1000 payday!

First up were the Hobby Stocks for 16 laps. DJ Nobles led lap 1 after Mick Kulak had troubles from pole. Lap 2 was Mike Stalnaker’s lap to shine. And, lap 3 saw “Ragin” Rodney Wright steal the lead. Josh Hughes spun the Don Woosley 81 out of turn 4 on lap 4 to slow the feature for the first time. “Sheriff” Trevor Gamble and Kevin Durden were charging but on lap 6 Durden went around in turn 2 setting “Ragin” Rodney up in front of “Sheriff” Gamble and Howard O’Steen for the restart. On lap 7 Wright made contact with Gamble out of 4 and both went reeling to the infield. As 1+2 sat, P3 Howard O’Steen took the lead. Wright’s dive into 4 was deemed rough driving and was disqualified as Gamble pitted for a new left rear. At the half-way point a debris caution was called setting O’Steen, Stalnaker, and Darran Jackson up with 10 on the board. By this point Durden had rebounded to 4th and Gamble had jumped up to 8th. Gamble stole the lead from O’Steen on lap 14 but before they crossed the line a caution came out for RJ Glazer’s turn 1 spin putting O’Steen in front of Gamble and Durden. Gamble jumped the start and O’Steen didn’t like it. Déjà vu in turn 1- result: Gamble to the back because of a flat; O’Steen disqualified. GWC with Durden, Mark Maresca, and Josh Hughes the new top 3. Maresca spun out of 4 and Durden won under yellow. Hughes was 2nd, Mick Kulak 3rd, DJ Nobles 4th, and Robert Sirmons completed the top 5.


Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks went 2nd and had to fight hard for 15 laps. On lap 6 Jesse Foster’s solo spin brought the caution out as Nick Kerr tried to pull away from “The Terror” Travis Staats and Stephen Hohlbough. On lap 10 Charlie Staats and Hohlbough made contact and brought the yellow out. Kerr took an easy win as “Charging Charlie” finished 2nd. “The Terror,” Buddy Pope, and Keith Briggs put the brand new Xtreme Team 19T in the top 5.

Top Gun Sprint Cars battled for 25 circuits and it started with Robbie Smith up front and leaving Mark Ruel, Jr. in the dust. These drivers went 16 green flag laps before Andrew Griffin spun in a clump to bring the first yellow out. Smith led until lap 14 when Ruel showed why “The Peruvian Outlaw” is the points leader. Ruel used traffic to his advantage and led Smith and “Mean” Gene Lasker at the restart. Tyler Godwin spun out of 4 on lap 19 setting Ruel up in front of Smith and Lasker with traffic between them. Ruel won over hard charging Robbie Smith. Matt Kurtz, Collin Cabre, and Ryan Partin completed the top 5.

A wild 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstock battle occurred over 17 laps. Justin Durbin led early but lost it before the lap 5 caution for top 5 runner Mike Valdes’ spin. “Flash” Jonathan Appleby led but lost it before halfway to Chad Scranton. Appleby fell out due to a broken tierod on lap 9 as Jason Gamble had engine troubles as well. Mike Tovet stole Scranton’s lead at halfway as he jumped up 20 spots from B Main winner. On lap 15 James Sullivan, III flipped the 14 out of 4 setting up a GWC. Tovet, the B Main winner (he later said his only B), held off Scranton, fellow B Main transfer Dean Jarvis, Gamble, and Durbin. The 8th different winner in 14 features shows how competitive this division is and he did it from 21st on the grid!

A 1 caution race, halted only for Dennis Sanderson’s wild ride in turns 3 and 4, was dominated by the old guys. Sanderson barrel rolled a few times but immediately climbed from the battered 26X. “Old Fox” Steve Cox led the first half but faded late to 3rd. “Rockin” Reid Christensen finished 2nd because it was all about “Terrific” Tony LaPorta. John Moore and Robert Gullett, from opposite ends of the grid, completed the top 5.

Next week the RaceCar Engineering Late Models, Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and the Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks return to battle on the 1/3 mile!

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
