Rain Still Sucks

. Posted in Racing News

082420138-19-13. Ocala, FL- The Bubba Army Late Models, Scorpion Racing Products UMP DirtCar Open-Wheel Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and Florida Mini Sprints will all try their hand on the 3/8 mile at Bubba Raceway Park.

Rich Pratt currently has a 66-point lead over young Tyler Clem at the top of the Late Model pile. Pratt comes off of a runner-up finish while Clem's last outing wasn't as delightful. Mark Whitener is now 100 markers back, even with his two wins on the season. A further 21 back is Bryan Bernhardt who sits just 13 ahead of Jeff Mathews. The best will be gunning for the front and a new winner could rise from the dust.

The Scorpion Modifieds have Charlie O'Neill leading the way, but his lead is just a slim three points over Jeff Mathews who has been dominant this year, much like he was from 2008-2011. Scott Kurtzner sits 28 out of the lead, but he's looking to break through with a win. Bryan Bernhardt sits 31 points out of the lead and Rich Pratt- looking for the season double- is 53 points out of the lead in a wide open division.

Devin Walker has built up a massive championship lead over Brian Shea in the Hobby Stock division. After a few runner-up finishes in his career, Walker has his eyes set on clinching the prize early. Sean Monoghan has sneaked into a very distant third after overtaking Hunter Gustafson in the season standings. Dennis Williams rounds out the top five in this wild division.

Now, while you can't rule anyone out until the numbers say you can, it seems like the championship is down to three drivers in the 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks. William Gillam has the advantage with a 22 point lead over Brandon Elwood. Elwood has 34 between himself and third placed Melvin Fockler who can take the risks the front two can't afford to take. Brandon Tillander and Tony Campbell round out the top five.

The Mini Sprints have gone through a rough patch over the last month, but they'll look for comfort at Bubba Raceway Park. A track that can open up a driver's title hopes, the 3/8 mile may just look to make someone's year. Nick Snyder and Eddie Moss, Jr. have a win each at the larger Ocala track, while Dirk Miller does not. We've seen wild things- including 10 different winners in the last 12 features- from the FMSA at BRP.

Pit gates open at 4, grandstands at 5, and racing is slated for 7. For more info, please visit 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.
