Ocala, FL - This week we will see the RaceCar Engineering Late Models join the Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators for some major points in tight championship battles. Also, the Figure-8 Race will take place!

Mark Whitener continued his dominance of the RaceCar Engineering Late Models at the 1/3 mile with yet another win for the entire Big Frog Motorsports team. As he closes in on a championship he will still have to fend off the challenges from Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. and Bo Allen. Others like Richard Ferry, Christian Augspurger, and Jeff Mathews have visited Coors Light Winner's Circle in a division that seems more wide open than ever.

JO Nobles, who may pull double duty again, will have focus on his Buddy's Home Furnishings Limited Late Model as he must continue to fend off "Big Chief" David Showers. As the #18's battle for a championship, the youth of Carter Stokes, Christian and Caleb McGillivray, Tyler Clem, and Billy Holmes will show what their made of against some of the best drivers in Florida and anyone could end up with the trophy.

Jonathan Appleby and Brian Mullins looked as if they would run away with the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stock championship but Shane Nichols has clawed back into contention in the race. In fact, Nichols has won 4-in-a-row which ties Mike Stalnaker for the record in the Bubba Clem Era! Of course, Mullins and Appleby will call upon drivers like Brandon Elwood, Jason Gamble, and John Thorpe to end this historic streak from driver #65.

Barfield Law Group sponsors our Mini Stocks and the field may want to call them to stop Buddy Pope's dominance. Pope has been tough all season long while Travis Staats has missed a few events and Reid Christensen has missed a few set-ups during the course of 2012. "Fluffy" Pope will try to lock this fight up but he'll have to battle with the likes of Christensen, Staats, Dean Kinsey, and Nick Kerr to do it.

The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators season took a massive turn last week but, unofficially, Tony LaPorta still leads the standings with Steve Johnson and Brandon Haseleu clawing their way up the leader boards. Jordan McMillon hasn't quite gotten win #2 in the books yet but he'll try to play spoiler in the championship race. Haseleu and Johnson must win, win, win but with Kody Fisher and Reid Christensen joining the fight it's gonna be that- a fight!

Bubba's Pit Stop opens at 1, pits at 4, stands at 5, and racing is scheduled for 7. We have racing and college football on in the Pit Stop so don't miss the dirt track action!

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
