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!

DARLAND STRETCHES NATIONAL WIN STREAK TO 23 YEARS WITH SUNDAY OCALA WIN

by BRP Media
Ocala, Florida…….Dave Darland added to the most impressive streak in USAC history on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park, as he added another AMSOIL National Sprint Car win to his list and made it 23 consecutive seasons with at least one win in a USAC National series. The Lincoln, Indiana veteran’s all-time record 54th National Sprint Car win came in flag-to-flag fashion aboard the Phillips Motorsports – Trench Shoring #71P DRC/Foxco. “My crew had to work their asses off just to get the car ready for the feature after some issues in the heat race and then gave me a great car even without having much chance to keep up with the track. We have just had some bad luck out of the gate, but tonight was a great way to rebound. It’s good to be down here while it’s snowing at home, and I can drink a beer to celebrate while it’s warm outside. And it’s good to get my first win in the state of Florida!” Darland said. Darland led at the start over polesitter Chris Windom, while Robert Ballou was the early man on the move, jumping into the top-five in just a few laps after starting tenth. A red flag on lap six brought things to a screeching halt as Brady Short flipped hard into turn three and collected Landon Simon. Neither driver was hurt. After a tangle on the ensuing restart, Ballou found himself bringing out the next caution as he slid to a stop in turn-three, giving up the fifth spot but restarting at the tail. Under that caution, defending champion and current point leader Brady Bacon… read more
