The Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds, Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models, Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators wrapped up their title fights while the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks must wait another week to smell the trophy.

First up were the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators as they wrapped up the championship between Steve Johnson and Brandon Haseleu. A 10 lapper started with Reid Christensen out in front of the field as he looked for another win. Haseleu would struggle as he actually pulled off for the night early which allowed Steve Johnson to take home the title. On lap 6 David Pate smacked the outside wall out of turn 4 to bring the only caution of the race out. Steve Johnson would retire as his radiator began to steam and he knew the title was his. That left just Christensen and Stephen Frankland on track. They would finish in that order while Johnson, Pate, and Brandon Haseleu rounded out the top 5.

The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks were up 2nd and Bubba Durbin would lead early. A lap 5 caution for DJ Horiski’s turn 4 spin gave Brandon Elwood the shot he needed to jump to the lead. Elwood would then lead through multiple cautions, including a completely synchronized spin from Brian Mullins and Jonathan Appleby, before giving way to “IceMan” Chad Scranton with just 4 to go. Scranton took home the $1000 prize, along with his weekend sweep, while Bubba Durbin finished 2nd. Elwood would finish a solid, yet disappointing, 3rd with Jonathan Appleby and Jeff Stalnaker, Jr. behind him.

Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds began with Dalton Lanich flying past his team-mate from 3rd to lead lap 1. Lanich, however, would have to hold off names like Pratt, Mathews, Bronson, Hammond, and both David and Buzzie Reutimann. On lap 11 Paul Snyder spun and Tyler Clem, who had held David Reutimann off for over 6 laps earlier, made contact as he had nowhere to go. Rich Pratt used the restart to take the lead and David Reutimann did the same as he took 2nd. A couple of cautions kept the pack bunched together. Rich Pratt, a GT Academy graduate, would take home win #1 of 2012 over NASCAR winner David Reutimann and Richard Petty Driving Experience driver Dalton Lanich. Bryan Bernhardt and Buzzie Reutimann rounded out the top 5.

Barfield Law Group Mini Stocks started with Keith “Hotshot” Briggs up front for an important reason. Reid Christensen brought the yellow out on lap 2 when he ran into the turn 4 wall. Buddy Pope spun in 2nd on lap 4 and didn’t lose a spot. With 2 to go Dean Kinsey brought a yellow out and gave Buddy Pope 1 last shot at Hotshot. Briggs would have to hold off Pope, Kody Fisher, Dean Kinsey, and Kris Prouty. Briggs would win in an emotional homecoming for his mom. Pope, Fisher, Prouty, and Kinsey were the top 5.


The final event of Bubba Is Thankful Weekend was our Buddy’s Home Furnishings Limited Late Models. JO Nobles would inherit pole and lead from the start but the youngsters Christian McGillivray and Tyler Clem were all over the division champion. On lap 5 Billy Holmes got loose and Shane Koperda had nowhere to go but into driver #7. Both were okay and Koperda continued on. McGillivray spun on the restart allowing Carter Stokes to jump to 2nd and Jason Pope to 3rd. Stokes would stall under caution and could not return to action leaving Jason Pope and Tyler Clem as the top 3. Ricky Land spun out of turn 4 on lap 13 and set up a great finish but Nobles would have his hands full with Pope and Clem. Nobles would not be denied his 12th win in 22 races while Jason Pope and Tyler Clem took career performances with 2nd and 3rd, respectively. David Showers and Christian McGillivray rounded out the top 5.

Next week is the NeSmith Crate Late Model Series finale and a $2500 to win 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stock battle! They both wrap their championships up and they are tighter than ever. You can contact us on Twitter (@BubbaRacewayPrk), Facebook, www.bubbaracewaypark.com, or call us at 352-622-9400!

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.
