One At A Time

. Posted in Racing News

LOGO-holderBRPRaceCar Engineering Late Models, Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators race before Bubba Raceway Park takes a break on the 7th.

"The Magic Man" Mark Whitener has been left without competition it seems as he has dominated the past 2 races. Bo Allen has been giving chase but still lacks the hardware after a hard win. Other competitors like "Cheddar" Christian Augspurger, Richard Ferry, and Bryan Bernhardt have been trying their hardest to join Allen in the fight against Big Frog and the 58 team. And, never count out Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. if he is healthy and has a car. It will be tough to beat the best one at a time.

"The Killer" just ended it after running 2nd to David Reutimann and Rich Pratt had troubles. They have been the front runners while Dalton Lanich looks to join them as a feel-good story. Jim Passino, Garret Stewart, Jeff Mathews, Buzzie Reutimann, and Tyler Clem are top 15 competitors who have challenged for wins all year and could break into Coors Light Winner's Circle. Of course, Reutimann has a lot of experience and Mathews is "4-time."

"Sheriff" Trevor Gamble and "Ragin" Rodney Wright have pulled away in this division and after the events 2 weeks ago we have a talking point on hand. Both are over it and will move on. Mike Stalnaker, Brian Shea, and Mark Maresca complete a top 5 of drivers with completely different agendas but all 3 want 1 thing- a win! It's a tough division and wins are scarce.

8 winners in 15 features and no repeat winners since Mike Stalnaker in October (a 4-peat, no less)! Brian Mullins, winless, leads Jason Gamble and Jonathan Appleby who are both part of those 8. As these 3 pull away Justin Durbin, Brandon Elwood, and Shane Nichols battle for the last 2 top 5 spots and only Nichols has won in 2012! Throw in Chad Scranton, a 5-timer, Mark Trexler, Mike Tovet, Eddie Kilbury, Jr., and Grady Christian and you know that anything is possible in the most competitive division at Bubba Raceway Park.

"Terrific" Tony LaPorta and Steve Johnson are trying to hold on up front while the Youth Movement is fighting for a title. "Rockin" Reid Christensen and Brandon Haseleu are that youth and are very strong. Age vs. youth is really measured by Billy Holmes and Randy Harless; the teammates in equal cars have both been quick but Holmes has been more consistent than the older Harless. Who will be the next Gladiator winner?

Bubba's Pit Stop opens at 1, pits at 4, grandstands at 5, and racing starts at 7. For more information check out www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call the Speedway at 352-622-9400!

It's all Reutzel at Bubba Raceway Park with Lucas Oil ASCS

by Scott McAllister
OCALA, Fla. (February 27, 2015) The Lucas Oil American Sprint Series presented by MAVTV American Real paid its first visit Florida's Bubba Raceway Park with Aaron Reutzel picking up his second Protect the Harvest A-Feature win of the 2015 season. Reutzel's sixth Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Victory since 2014 the Clute, Texas driver took off from the pole to lead flag-to-flag for his third podium in four starts. "I tell you what; this team has got some momentum right now. It just seems like we can't do anything wrong," said Reutzel. "I knew all we had to do was win the start, and once I did I just stayed around the tires. My highs are like 7,500RPM, I don't think I went any further than half-throttle at anytime. I got too lapped there and I knew if I just followed them, I'd be alright. I was actually trying to let them get away from me but I just kept getting slower and slower like I was pulling them back to me." Nearly collected in slower traffic on the final lap, the caution displayed before Johnny Herrera could mount a charge on the B.C. Funds No 87. Asked about the caution, Reutzel replied, "I really didn't want to see that caution. That's like the third race I've been leading on a rubber down track and had a caution on the white flag lap and just something happened, so I was just like well, here we go again, but I knew if I could just get the jump and roll into one and two, I'd be okay." read more
