10/26/13. Ocala, FL- The Limited Sprints, Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, TQ Late Models, and Rent-N-Roll Gladiators all took to the track with a spooky theme on board the property.

Hobby Stocks opened up the show with Mike Stalnaker the leader as Eric Moon chasing him until Moon’s rocketship stalled out on lap four. At the halfway point the caution would fly for the stopped car of Cory Hupp; Stalnaker would have to fend off Jon Layerd and Trey Cameron, III for the lead. Stalnaker would hold on for his third win of 2013 as Trey Cameron, III and Rebecca Paugh took career best finishes with second and third, respectively. Charles Cantley and Cory Hupp completed the top five.

TQ Late Models would attack the track next and ten-year old Austin Strosahl would lead lap one. John Hopke would steal the lead on lap two and proceed to pull away from the pack. After a few cautions Dave Rader would jump to the lead and leave John Hopke in his tire tracks. As Terry Wright fought for the lead with Rader, Wright spun the #007 machine around and had to go back to the tail. Dave Rader would win a shortened event to keep the division with no repeat winners. John Hopke would end up second over Austin Strosahl, Sean Babcock, and Kevin McKenzie.

The Limited Sprints went out third and Mark Ruel, Jr. opened up the gap over Tyler Godwin and Danny Martin, Jr. On lap fifteen, as he ran fifth, “Captain” Tony Agin would cross the #38 up in turn four and allow Godwin and Martin another shot at Ruel up front. Ruel would not be denied as he took a commanding victory over Godwin, Martin, Steve Darvalics, and Terry Witherspoon.

The 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks put on a fantastic event with Shane Nichols leading early on. A few cautions would slow his progress and keep Jonathan Appleby, Jason Gamble, and Brandon Elwood on his tail. It would be lap 12 before one- Appleby- would take advantage of a slip-up from Nichols and put his nose in the lead. Appleby would hold on to win a caution-marred event over Elwood, Gamble, William Gillam, and Mark Trexler.

The Rent-N-Roll Gladiators had quite a battle for second as Robert Gullett pulled out to a massive lead and never looked back. Brandon haseleu would get the better of Stephen Frankland for second while Tyler Bryden finished fourth.

Next week the Bubba Army Late Models return as well as the Scorpion Racing Products Modifieds. Hobby Stocks, 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks, and the Florida Mini Sprints will also help open up November! For more info please visit or call us at 352-622-9400!

Bubba Raceway Park Results 5/15/2015

by Lisa Mamph
May 15, 2015 Ocala, FL - A cool breeze in the air made the racing action hot this past Friday at Bubba Raceway Park. For the driver’s in attendance they were treated to a well prepared racetrack special thanks to Bubba himself and Jimmy Flores. E-Modifieds were first to take to the track in their 10 lap feature event. This race would consist of Neven Gainey (0) and Brandon Elwood (28E) dueling it out for the first place position. Consistent side by side racing would make a hard fought victory for Gainey who would top Elwood at the checkered flag to take the win. Third spot would go to Dillon Ennis (10E) and rounding out the finish would be Tom Sheehan (5). Up next were the Florida T.Q. Late Models for a 20 lap feature event. Terry Wright (007) would jump to an early lead over Dalton Hopke (H2) and David Rader (6). As the racing action was heating up, the challengers for the lead started falling off with Hopke being the first to retire to the pit area followed a few laps later by Rader. This left Wright to sail to the checkered flag unopposed. Rounding out the top five of the night was Randy Glick (45), Fl, John Hopke (H1), Sean Babcock (02) and Chuck Cessna (85). The Florida Mini Sprints were next to take to the track for their 20 Lap feature event. Starting on the pole and jumping to an early lead was Danny Sams III (24x). Sams held off charges from Robbie Smith (77) and Robbie Hoffman (12) as Hoffman was looking to make it two in a row at BRP and Smith was just hoping to… read more
