Leftovers Classic To Be An Early Christmas For Fans And Drivers Alike

11-25-13. Ocala, FL- "What offseason?" is the question that has been running around the paddocks and pits of all forms of motorsports and that does not skip over the local short tracks. Bubba Raceway Park will keep the gates open and run a Sunday show right after Thanksgiving with five of the grittiest divisions in Florida running for some cash just three-and-a-half weeks before Christmas!
 
The Hobby Stocks come off of a huge $2000 to win show that Tim Powers grabbed while the likes of Brian Morgan, Devin Walker, Rodney Wright, and Mike Stalnaker all ran up front but had something just not go their way. A $750 prize will go to this Sunday's winner and man of the names from last week-end will be back in action.
 
The Mini Sprints will run for $600 with no sanction on their event, though the FMSA will wrap their season up the night before, meaning the series' champion will race for the first time with their crown less than 24 hours later. No points, no sanctioning, just $600 to the driver that tops the Mini Sprints that are anything but predictable.
 
Our very own 1-800-ASK GARY Thunder Stocks will put on a show with $500 to the one that tops them all. Last time out the division nearly went caution-free which could play into the hands of less experienced drivers Melvin Fockler and Brandon Tillander while Jeff Stalnaker, Jr., Jonathan Appleby, and Brandon Elwood try to grab a win and become the first to five on the season.
 
The TQ Late Models will be back in action with $500 on the line and they will hope to have the winning car actually make it to Victory Lane this time. Don Strosahl, Jr. became the first driver with multiple wins in the division last time out while Terry Wright, Sean Babcock, and Dave Rader will attempt to join him as a two-timer.
 
Finally, the Rent-N-Roll Gladiators will battle for $150 and could make it the best battle of the year. Though the season has been dominated by Stephen Frankland, a driver could make their season with a win on Sunday.
 
Gates will open at Noon on Sunday with grandstands at 1:00 and racing schedule to start at 3:00. For more info, please visit www.bubbaracewaypark.com or call us at 352-622-9400! Happy Thanksgiving and we'll see you Sunday at Bubba Raceway Park for the Leftover's Classic.

HITENER CATCHES AIR TO VICTORY IN NeSMITH LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER

Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL drives the #58 Dave’s Towing Special to victory on Wednesday night in the season opener for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL. (Photos By Trace.com)OCALA, FL – Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL bounced his way to victory on Wednesday night in the 40-lap NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series season opener at Bubba Raceway Park driving the Dave’s Towing Special. Whitener had to hold on through adverse track conditions to bring his race car home in one piece to take the win. Several inches of rain earlier in the week gave track owner Bubba Clem and his crew a challenge just to even have the track with a new clay surface ready to race on Wednesday night for the Rock Auto.com Winternationals season opener. A deep hole in the turn four surface developed with ten laps to go that sent the dirt late models airborne coming off the corner. “I race here a lot and Bubba and his crew do a great job to always have the best track conditions, so tonight was an exception because of all of the rain we’ve had here,” Whitener said. “I thought they did great just to give us a track we could race on early, but when the hole developed in turn four, we just had to get through it as best we could.” As the rut deepened in turn four, Whitener had a big lead over Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, WV in the Bland’s Towing Rocket. After Whitener bounced through the hole a couple of times, he… read more
