Bubba Raceway Park Returns To Action With 360 Sprints On Tap

7-9-13. Ocala, FL- The Bubba Army 360 Sprint Cars return to the 3/8 mile in Ocala this week-end, as do all the fans and employees after a well deserved week-end off to enjoy with friends and family. The Hobby Stocks and Limited Late Models will join them, and the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks will battle for a $500 prize. There is also a Kid's Bike Race scheduled.
 
Robbie Smith has yet to win at the 3/8 mile, but he is our current points leader- if only be eight points- over "The Captain" Tony Agin who is also winless. In fact, the whole top 5 is winless as both of our winners (Matt Kurtz and Danny Martin, Jr.) have been hit-or-miss in 2013. Terry Witherspoon sits twenty-two out, but has rookie Andy Cobb breathing down his neck with just two points separating them. AJ Maddox is mired thirty-seven back after some bad luck, but it may be a hit-or-miss year if Kurtz and Martin are the ones to go by.
 
Tyler Clem, still happy to have a double digit age, is the Limited Late Models points leader with a runner-up finish to Tim Powers and a win last time out. Clem can't breathe easy as Jason Pope is just eleven back and Chuck Jackson rides a further eleven down the board. Powers is fourth, fifty-eight back, and Nevin Gainey sits fifth with half of Clem's tally as his points score.
 
Devin Walker has been phenomenal this season with a couple of wins to his credit and a 114-point lead. Brian Shea hasn't been able to keep chase as a couple of missed races for family functions has him stuck in that deficit. Hunter Gustafson took his first couple of wins early on, but has fallen to over 150 points behind Walker in the standings. "Crossover" Sean Monoghan is juggling an asphalt schedule with some dirt races and that has kept him from pursuing the title, but he always runs towards the front and that has him fourth over Dennis Williams. Williams has been selecting his races wisely, but just like Monoghan, he always runs towards the front.
 
William Gillam stole his points lead back, even if only by four points, after the last event. Brandon Elwood now rides second, but currently owns the tie breaker with two wins to Gillam's one. Melvin Fockler jumped up to third which shows the dedication and consistency he's had since getting thrown over 100 back after six features. Fockler is still sixty-seven out, but has scored the most points in the summer stretch. Tony Campbell now sits fourth, nearly one-hundred out, after a dismal week-end last time out, and Brandon Tillander has had to pull the back-up machine out to try to stay in the championship fight.
 
Racing is scheduled for 7, pits open at 4, and grandstands at 5. For more info, and to look at the schedule through Christmas, check out 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.
