Gough Battled Competitors and Track for Hard Fought Victory

img 8908 copyOcala, FL, After 3 weeks of rain outs and torrential downpours almost every day, the track crew at Bubba Raceway Park worked hard to prepare the track for action this past Saturday night. Despite their effort and as storms raged all around Bubba Raceway Park was able to finally get the show in, as Mother Nature showed a little mercy on us.

First to take to the track were the E-Modifieds. Setting the pace for the 20 lap feature event was the (10t) of Dustin Thayer and the (8) of Mike Stalnaker. Dustin took the early lead until Lap 3 when the number (11) machine of Shane Williams took a commanding lead. Williams would lead until lap 16 when he retired his car to the pit area. The (96) of Kyle Arvin would take the lead and the win followed by (95) Nevin Gainey for second, (21) Jon Layered for third, (5) Tom Sheehan for forth and (11) of Shane Williams rounded out the top 5 positions.

T.Q. Late Models roared out of the pits in normal fashion, with the (6) of David Radar and the (45) of Randy Glick on the front row to take the green. They would not hold off the (007) of Terry Wright for long as Wright took the lead on lap 2 and set sail for the victory. Following Wright across the stripe would be Glick for second, (H1) of Dalton Hopke for third, (15) Austin Strosahl for third and Radar for fifth.

The Hobby Stock Hercules Series was up next and in full force with a full field of some of the best Hobby Stocks in the State of Florida. The (44) of Tim Powers would lead every lap of the 30 lap feature. As it seemed that no one had anything for Powers the (21) of Scotty Kay Jr. would challenge Powers in the last 5 laps of the race. Powers would hold on to the win, followed by Kay for second, (64) Trent Wilson for third, (17F) Joe Forsyth for forth and (76) David Arivette for fifth.

The Limited Late Models were next to take to the track. What a show they put on, with great side by side racing for the lead between (21G) Forrest Gough and (57) Eddie Gainey. These 2 raced side by side for 18 laps and on the final lap it was Gough for the win over 2nd place Gainey. Following them to the checkered was (17) Nevin Gainey for third, (55) Tim Dowling for forth and (102) Jason Pope for fifth.

The V-8 Thunder Stock racers showed up in large numbers, with 21 cars slated to take the green flag for their 20 Lap Feature Event. It would be the (69A) of Jonathan Appleby and the (9) of Jeff Stalnaker Jr. scheduled to start on the front row. Stalnaker would change his ride from the heat and have to start at the tail of the feature, moving the (93) of Marco Reyes to the front row of the initial start of this race. Reyes would lead the first 3 circuits and relinquish the lead to the (3) of Joey Durbin. Durbin would lead until lap 11 and a battle would pursue between him and the (11K) of Shane Williams for the remaining 9 laps. Williams would come out the victor followed by (33D) Jason Gamble for second, Appleby for third, Durbin for forth and Stalnaker would make his way through the field for fifth. Post race inspection would disqualify Appleby moving the (24K) of Kevin Mills to Fifth.

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
