Shane Williams Notches Another Ocala Win

. Posted in Racing News

ZUBER, FL-  For the first time in months, Ocala Speedway was spared heavy rains throughout the week leading up to a Friday night of racing, and that resulted in a totally different sort of racing surface greeting drivers and crews.  After two weeks of racing on a wet clay, racers enjoyed racing on a well prepared and fast track, and that led to exciting action.  And in addition to the racing, drivers and track staff took time out to participate and a special tribute to our local heroes, such as fire, rescue, and law enforcement personnel, and to honor and recognize active military men and women and veterans.

An early melee in turn four shook up the Late Model division by removing two contenders from the action.  Philip Cobb and Christian Augspurger finished first and second in their heat race and looked to have the cars to beat, but both were collected as one car spun leaving no where for them to go.  With them leaving via the hook, the door opened for Shane Williams to take control and keep it.  Williams had to fight off a determined J.O. Nobles in order to get the victory, and following Nobles was an equally fast Joe Kump in third place.  Tim Zackery came home fourth while Kyle Owen battled to the fifth spot.

After a stern warning in the driver's meeting early on, there was far less beating and banging during the V8 Thunder Stock feature race but a lot of close action instead.  Curtis Clark took the early lead, only to see Jason Gamble come flying forward and wrestle it away.  But Gamble's lead was short lived as Clark re-took his first place position and fiercely defended it from a hard charging Harold Erickson.  Curtis Clark notched the victory as Erickson settled for second.  James Edwards fought his way to the third spot while Eddie Kilbury Jr and David Walls rounded out the top five.

Calvin Christian won the pole and led the Mini Stocks to the green flag, but it was Johnny Zackery who had the early lead before relinquishing it to Dan Kerr on the first lap.  Meanwhile Paul Combast was busy working his way toward the front after starting deep in the field, and Keith Briggs returned to the Mini Stock ranks and began shaking things up in the top five.  Dan Kerr proved to be more than anyone could handle as he registered a win, and Johnny Zackery followed to place second.  Paul Combast battled up to the third spot before the checkers waved, and Keith Briggs earned a respectable fourth place finish in the new 19T.  Calvin Christian struggled on the night, yet fought to a fifth place finish.

By the time that the Gladiators were finished heat racing it looked like that Mike Lane was unstoppable, and yet despite leading almost the entire feature race, Lane was surprised by Eddie Lentz in the final laps as Lentz made the pass and stole the lead.  Lane refused to give up and fought hard, but got a bit overzealous in turn four and spun Lentz, resulting in a trip to the rear for Lane and return to the lead for Lentz.  At the restart Lentz remained strong and grabbed a win, as Devin Walker pulled his own last second ambush on Austin Gamble to squeak past for second place.  Gamble settled for third as Mike Lane battled back to the fourth place spot, and Paul Hahn drove a borrowed car to fifth.

Next Friday, September 18th, Ocala Speedway welcomes the Open Wheel Modifieds back to beautiful downtown Zuber for the Annual Fall Brawl.  The race pays $1500 to the winner and normally draws an excellent field of top mods from all over Florida and south Georgia.  The Hobby Stocks will be back after a week off, and the Mini Stocks will be stoked for more action after an excellent outing this week.  The Gladiators will round out the divisions racing with the mods.

Results 6-28-14

by BRP Media
The first half of the 2014 racing season came to a close this past Saturday Night. The night ended in a bang with a lot of great racing action, to be followed by a beautiful Pre-4th of July Fireworks Show. The Hobby Stocks were first out for their 20 lap feature event. Rick Elwood (92) would find himself leading the first half of this race in comfort, until Eric Moon (18) made his way through the field into the second position. Once Moon maneuvered his way through the field and caught Elwood these two would battle it out for the top position for last 5 laps. At the checkered Elwood would win followed by Moon, third would go to Cory Howard (22), forth to Brandon Elwood (28E) and rounding out the fifth position would be Joe Forsyth (17F). Next up would be the Scorpion Performance Engine Modifieds to take to the track. The original line up would have Austin Sanders (64) and Paul Snyder (54) starting on the front row, followed by Buzzie Reutimann (00) and Roger Crouse (9) starting in the second row. Race control would then offer up a challenge to all 4 drivers. The challenge would be to go to the back of the 10 car field, If one of these 4 drivers would win the feature they would receive a $300 dollar bonus. Sanders, Snyder and Reutimann would accept the challenge leaving Crouse and Shane Nichols (65) for a front row start. Crouse would take advantage of the front row start and jump out to an early lead putting distance on Sanders and Snyder, but unfortunate luck for Reutimann… read more
