Great Action From Bubba Raceway Park As October Hits Full Throttle

. Posted in Racing News

IMG 3291-2By- Jim Rouse
10-12-13. Ocala, FL- The Bubba Army Late Models, Scorpion Racing Products UMP DirtCar Modifieds, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators all put on great racing as October opens up.
 
Rich Pratt opened up the Scorpion Racing Products UMP DirtCar Modifieds with the lead but Kyle Bronson had snatched it away by the end of lap four. Jim Passino would bring the caution out on lap twelve and leave Bronson to hold off "4-Time" Jeff Mathews and "The Kansas Kid" Paul Snyder in his brand new GRT by Fitzgerald with eight to go. Rick Scott spun and left the field bunched up with three to go. It wouldn't effect the order up front as Bronson held off Mathews and Snyder. Hunter Gustafson would improve to fourth and Rich Pratt rounded out the top five.
 
The Hobby Stocks opened up with Hunter Gustafson (fresh off of a career best run in the Modifieds) leading the opening stint. Rebecca Paugh would bring the caution out with six to go after she looped her #23 in turn two; that would leave Gustafson to hold off Tommy Hill and Devin Walker. Walker would make quick work of Hill and would lead lap eighteen. Walker would clear two corners later and wave goodbye as he clinched the championship with four time Knoxville Nationals champion Danny Lasoski- the man who invested in him when he was a Gladiator driver four years ago- in attendance. Hunter Gustafson, Tommy Hill, Dave Arivett, and Rebecca Paugh rounded out the top five.
 
Ivedent Lloyd, Jr. would rocket away from the pack until lap nine when Tyler Clem, running second at the time, would make an aggressive move to hold off Kyle Bronson and would eventually spin as he attempted to save the #14. Lloyd would be left with the task of holding off Kyle Bronson and Bryan Bernhardt. Lloyd would hold on for his second win of the season over Bronson, points leader Rich Pratt, Bernhardt, and John Koller.
 
The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks had Jonathan Appleby open up a huge lead over the rest of the pack. Melvin Fockler would bring the yellow out on lap three as he spun from second. Appleby would dominate the event and fend off William Gillam, Brandon Elwood, Heath Walker, and Tony Campbell for his second consecutive checkered flag in the division. Gillam would be disqualified in tech, however, with an illegal rear end, thus moving Elwood into second. Walker, Campbell, and Melvin Fockler would round out the top five.
 
The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators had a Lucky 7 showdown as Brandon Haseleu opened the event with the lead, but Stephen Frankland would prevail for the eleventh time in 2013.
 
Next week is the PJ Wiggins Memorial for the Scorpion Racing Products UMP DirtCar Modifieds. Late Models, Limited Late Models, and Hobby Stocks will also race with $2000 to win for Late Models, $1000 for the Limited Late Models, and $600 for the Hobby Stocks.

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
