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!

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.
