The Open Wheel Modified race featured some exciting racing at the front of the pack, as drivers like John Bradley, Dave Barber, and Jeff Mathews, went at each other.  Richard Dickinson had a great starting spot, but eventually slipped to fifth place in the end.  Mathews had his share of troubles on the night but fought to a third place finish, while Chip Owens remained tough throughout and claimed fourth place.

But the modified race would not end without some measure of controversy, as a tangle between race leader Dave Barber and a lapped car on the final lap caused a caution to wave.  As Barber and John Bradley raced almost side by side out of turn two on the final lap, they found the much slower car of Tim Zackery, which was several laps down, in front of them.  Zackery apparently failed to realize that the leaders had caught him and remained in the middle of the track, forcing the leaders to attempt to get around him. Bradley went low while Barber tried to go high, but in the end Barber could not find room at the top and went low as well, impacting Zackery's car and spinning out.

The call from the tower was that since a lapped car had failed to yield to the leaders racing to the checkered flag, Dave Barber would be awarded his position back on the restart.  Barber took the green and held off Bradley to take a win, but expressed some regrets in victory lane during his post race interview.  Barber was happy to win, but felt like he may not have deserved to get his position back after the caution.  Bradley and Barber had put on quite a show racing with each other in the final laps until the unfortunate mishap happened, but the two of them discussed the finish after racing ended and decided to split the difference with the prize money.  Bradley got the trophy and the points for the win while Bradley settled for second place.

Blake Spencer led the Mini Stocks to the green flag from the pole but found out quickly that some visiting drivers were pretty tough to tame.  Travis Staats wasted less than a lap getting by Spencer, and Dan Kerr followed after him.  Charlie Staats had a less appealing starting position in the field and battled into the top five as well, while Sean Babcock ran strong throughout.  In the end Travis Staats looked unbeatable as he took the win, and Dan Kerr also got a well deserved second place finish.  Charlie Staats climbed his way through traffic to place third, while Sean Babcock bettered Blake Spencer for fourth place.  Spencer settled for fifth place on the night.

No matter where Danny Lunn has run his Gladiator car this season, he has found success and been out in front.  After spanking the field at Putnam County Speedway the previous week, Lunn trekked to Ocala Speedway and repeated the process, taking a definitive win.  The closest competitor in the end was Dalton Strehle, who raced a different car this week but ended up with the same result as last week, a DQ in the post race tech inspection.  That handed second place to Paul Hahn and third place to Austin Gamble.  Chris Neville placed fourth followed by Kody Fisher in fifth place.

Next week the Late Models get their last shot at Ocala Speedway before the 14th Annual Powell Memorial on June 5th, and a large field of top racers should be on hand to get a feel for Ocala's tough layout.  Racing in addition to the Late Models are the Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks, the Mini Stocks, and the Gladiators.
