BRP 2016WN MJ 12X18 615

XX Augie BurtramAnother strong field of Amsoil V8 Thunder Stock racers began their feature race with all sorts of position changes in the front of the pack, and by the time the fender banging came to order Chris Fontaine seemed to have things under control.  That is, until Augie Butram got involved in the racing up front and went head to head with Fontaine for lap after lap.  That battle highlighted the entire race, but it was Burtram who finally gained the upper hand and claimed the win.  Fontaine held on for a second place finish, followed by a hard charging Jason Gamble who had to fight his way from last place to the front.  David Walls and Terry Dunbar rounded out the top five.

Full moon or not, the Hobby Stocks provided a multi lap, side by side free for all that began on lap 3 between David Kinsey and Bubba Christian and lasted until the final turn of the final lap.  Kinsey and XX David KinseyChristian went at it as hard as two drivers could without wrecking each other, thrilling the crowd with side by side action for lap after lap.  Kinsey finally managed to get the advantage in the last two laps and take the lead from Christian, and in the final turn Bubba Christian drove in too hard and spun, costing him a second place finish.  Heath Walker, Joe Boyd, and Donnie Reed, all passed Christian in that corner before Bubba recovered and finished fifth. 

But the prize for last lap excitement and dramatics went to the Gladiator division as a very determined Brandon Watson went from the back to the front more than once in a bid to get a win.  Watson was also driven into the turn one wall by Eddie Lentz after the two had a unfortunate meeting earlier in the race, and earning Lentz a conduct DQ and a forced exit from competition.  Watson drove away from that incident to again catch the race leader and figure into the final outcome.

And on the final lap as Watson attacked race leader Dalton Strehle, there was contact between the two of them entering turn three. Watson spun sideways, yet quickly corrected and rocketed his car across the infield and into turn 4 to get to the start finish line first.  Strehle was so shocked and surprised by the entire affair that he backed off of the gas, thus allowing the Watson to get in front of him.  That spectacular finish left Strehle screaming foul on the front stretch as Watson sat in Victory Lane, and the crowd on their feet screaming their appreciation for what may have been the most exciting finish this season at Ocala Speedway.
23 Austin Gamble
Yet the full moon was not finished wreaking havoc on the racing as tech issues erased all of what transpired on the final half lap.  Both Brandon Watson and Dalton Strehle earned a DQ, which made Austin Gamble the eventual race winner.  Rich Smith earned the second place trophy while Josh Hale went home with the third place hardware.  Twelve year old Kody Fisher finished fourth, followed by Dennis White in fifth place.

Friday, May 15th marks the first chance for the Sportsman cars to test the clay in beautiful downtown Zuber as the the $1000 to win Sportsman Invitational highlights another week of racing action.  The Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks, Mini Stocks, and Gladiators, will be racing in addition to the Sportsman cars.
