Florida State Modified Championship Halted For Rain

REW-BubbaRP-7-21 0719By- Jim Rouse, BRP Media, 7-21-12 Ocala, FL
 
The Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators were on deck but not everyone got to bat.

Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks started the night off with a bang as Buddy Pope shot to the top spot. Pope promptly lost the left rear wheel on lap 2 and collected Shirlene Hammond, Charlie Staats, and “Rockin” Reid Christensen. Only Pope would retire as he left Zach Amundsen the lead. Christensen spun on lap 11 which allowed the Staats boys and Nick Kerr to catch up with driver #20. He held ‘em off with Travis Staats 2nd, Charlie 3rd, Nick Kerr 4th, and “Rockin” Reid in 5th. Amundsen's #20 was found illegal, however, which gave Travis Staats the win! Hammond would jump up to 5th with that.

On lap 5 of the Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models leader David Showers saw his #18 go up in flames bringing out the red flag. Showers was okay but the car would not continue. Phillip Cobb, Forrest Gough, and Carter Stokes would inherit the top 3 spots. On lap 13 Ricky Land blew up the 66 giving Nobles a shot at Cobb. Nobles made a pass for the lead on lap 14 and just as Cobb crossed over the yellow flew for a turn 2 spin by “Rowdy” Denica Hetznecker. As a storm brewed the pass for the lead was the winning move- Nobles was the winner!!! Cobb an unbelievable 2nd, Stokes 3rd, Gough in 4th, and David Showers, Jr. a wonderful 5th. Moments after the big lap 14 pass the thunder roared sending fans into a frenzy for cover. The race was immediately given the checkered flag.

The racing was called for the night as lakes formed everywhere on the track with massive rain storms. We will run the 40-lap Modified feature on September 14th, the date set for the 2nd Annual PJ Wiggins Memorial!

Next week the Top Gun Sprint Cars return! RaceCar Engineering Late Models, 1-800 ASK GARY Thunderstocks, Hobby Stocks, and the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators join them. For more info please go to www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400!

Bronson “Parks It” Again at Bubba Raceway Park

by Scott McAllister
Thanks to beautiful weather, Fan Appreciation Night and our annual “Back to School” Back Pack Giveaway, Bubba Raceway Park was packed with fans ready to enjoy some fantastic racing action. The Galaxy Fireworks Hobby Stocks were the 1st to roll out for their feature and Tim Gay from Plant City quickly made it known he was here for the win. It was Gay’s 1st appearance at BRP this year, but once he got out front, he never looked back and “parked it” in the O’Reilly’s Auto Parts Victory Lane. Mike Stalnaker had a strong run as always, finishing 2nd and Rodney Wright in the 99 car from Altoona crossed the stripe 3rd. Rick Elwood had a tremendous run after tagging the back of the field earlier in the race to finish 4th and DJ Nobles, who didn’t even make it for heat races and started in the back of the field, finished 5th. Heat races were won by Rick Elwood and Mike Stalnaker. Florida Mini Sprints brought out their usual breathtaking show with multiple “slide-jobs” on both ends of the track. Dirk Miller in the #68 Todd’s Tomatoes, Hyper Racing Chassis from Deland powered his way to another win here at BRP. He was hounded all night by Robbie Smith who eventually had to settle for a hard fought 2nd. Rounding out the top 5 were Danny Sams, Robby Hoffmann and Austin Craddock. The two heat race winners were Robbie Smith and David Hall. Modifieds rolled out 17 strong and it was quickly apparent that the winner would have to earn this victory.
