Ocala, FL

Bubba Raceway Park has just 5 weeks of racing left and this one will showcase our Scorpion Racing Products UMP DirtCar Open-Wheel Modifieds as well as the Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks.

In the Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds it seems as if Jeff Mathews has lost his reign but he has not quit yet as he took max points over Kyle Bronson last time out. Bronson has a massive lead and Mathews will have to win out to have a chance. Dalton Lanich isn't in much better position but he can set up a strong 2013 with a few wins at the end of the season in his Chris Williams machine. Rich Pratt and Garret Stewart have contended for wins in 2012 but haven't quite broken into Coors Light Winner's Circle yet; their time will come and when it does it'll get quite exciting for all.

JO Nobles and David Showers have separated themselves from the competition in the Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models but Nobles looks to have the title wrapped up soon. Forrest Gough has had an interesting season and looks to complete it with a trip to Coors Light Winner's Circle while he tries to hold off young Christian and Caleb McGillivray who are also seeking their first wins of 2012. Others such as Kevin Mills and David Showers, Jr. have broken into Victory Lane but 2012 has certainly been all about the #18.

As the season winds down for our Hobby Stocks there are just 3 races, including this week, left and Rodney Wright has a bit of work to do. He sits 9 points down on Trevor Gamble but the good news for Wright is that a heat is worth 3 and a feature 6 so it's far from over! However, the good new for Gamble is that the math means he controls the fight at this point. This fight has been close all year and they've left drivers like Mike Stalnaker and Mark Maresca, coming off of a career drive, in the dust. It's an all-out fight and the dust won't settle before a champion is decided.

Real drama is in the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks as Shane Nichols continues to steal points from the main contenders Jonathan Appleby and Brian Mullins. Nichols was able to tie Appleby for second-most wins in 2012 (Chad Scranton has 7 to their 6 each) while Mullins seems to finish 2nd every week. Jason Gamble, James Sullivan, III, John Thorpe, and Brandon Elwood all have speed but Thorpe has said he is done for 2012 and Gamble has missed a few races recently. The fight for 3rd is on but the title goes to the man who never quits!

Buddy Pope, Travis Staats, and Reid Christensen are at the top of the fight in the Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks and they all have a story on their way up. Pope set out last year to take it home but had some troubles which set him back. He never gave up and last year's efforts have him favored for the 2012 title. Staats answered the call and recently became Pope's main rival with some big wins but the deficit may have be too much to overcome. Christensen has had some troubles but his rookie campaign has exceeded expectations. Either way, it's an all out fight between 3 deserving racers.

Bubba's Pit Stop opens at 1 while stands open at 5. Pit gates open at 4. Racing is scheduled for 7 and have no fear- Bubba's Pit Stop has all of the racing on from NASCAR to Formula 1 so you don't have to miss a thing! For more information visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400!

BLAIR OUTLASTS LEAKING TIRE FOR NeSMITH LATE MODEL WIN

Max Blair of Centerville, PA celebrates his NeSmith Late Model win on Thursday night in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL driving the R&J Poultry Rocket. With a win and third-place showing in the first two nights of racing, Blair leads the NeSmith Late Model point standings. (PhotosByTrace.com)OCALA, FL – Max Blair of Centerville, PA had to outrun the competition and a leaking right-rear tire to win the 50-lap main event on Thursday night for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park. Blair drove the R&J Poultry Rocket to the $2,500 win and the NeSmith Late Model point lead. “During a caution period on lap 20, my dad gave me a signal that my right-rear tire was going down,” Blair said. “I worked the car back and forth, and it felt fine, so I just kept going. I was really sweating it out in the last laps of the race because I could really feel it going away, but it stayed up until right after I took the checkered flag.” Blair started out the evening by taking fast time honors with a lap around Bubba Raceway Park in 15.947 seconds to earn the pole position for the main event. Blair took the lead at the start of the race, but he had plenty of company throughout the race. The first nine laps were led by Blair, and then he decided to go to the outside to negotiate around the cars on the tail of the lead lap. That opened up the inside groove for Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, who got… read more
