The Amsoil V8 Thunder Stocks are Ocala Speedway's most competitive and exciting division again in 2009, and the field of 30 that showed up to race wasted no time in putting their full fendered machines to good use on each other.  After all, a deep invert in the starting field of 30 had many fast cars in lousy starting positions, and a swarm of racers immediately attempted to get to the front as quickly as possible.  That began a flurry of spins, collisions, and cars breaking that kept the yellow flying and the Ocala Speedway track crews hopping.

And thanks to all of the banging and breaking, time expired on the race just after the halfway point, resulting in an early green/white/checkered finish.  Jason Gamble picked up another decisive win, followed by Augie Buttram in the second spot.  James Edwards led for a time before finally finishing in the third spot, while Chris Fontaine grabbed fourth and Terry Dunbar rounded out the top five. 

The third and final division to run was the Mini Stocks, and once more there was plenty of action up front.  Travis Staats rocketed out to an early lead, but Danny Vogel pulled alongside and stayed there for a few laps, finally wrestling the lead away when Staats bobbled slightly in turn 4.  Meanwhile Paul Combast was busy fighting through the field and broke into the top three, while Johnny Zackery held the fourth spot. 

Eventually Danny Vogel held off the competition and scored a win, as Paul Combast settled for second.  Travis Staats remained strong with a third place finish, while Johnny Zackery placed fourth and Charlie Staats fought his way to the fifth spot.

Friday, June 26th, will mark the return of the Open Wheel Modifieds to Ocala, plus the amsoil V8 Thunder stocks will do battle with $1000 going to the winner.  The Hobby Stocks , Mini Stocks, and Gladiators, will also be racing.
