What's going on with the other florida racing sites? Karnac has only had one story in 2 months and the site has been down since yesterday. Florida flag stand hasn't updated their site in over a week.

all the racing websites in florida except this one have a hard time keeping updated. and now one of the best sites florida sprint car fans is shutting down. that's a real shame. fscf was another one that was always up to date. http://floridasprintcarfans.com/2014/07/22/game-over/

Re :   New Smyrna Speedway

RESULTS FOR 7-19

CLOUSER BREAKS STREAK WITH PRO LM WIN
SATURDAY NIGHT AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY

by Dave Westerman

There had been a different winner in each Pro Late Model race held so far this
season at New Smyrna Speedway... until this Saturday night when Rich Clouser
drove to his second consecutive victory on the high-banked half mile.

A nice field of Pro Lates were on hand including Wellington's Garrett Jones
who was making his first appearance here since the World Series in February.
Jones appeared to have the car to beat as he set quick time at 17.990, the
only driver to break the the 18 second mark as qualifying was held while
temperatures were still close to 90 degrees. Anthony Cataldi was second quick
at 18.036 seconds followed by Clouser's 18. 048 lap. Jones drew a four pill
for the inversion placing fourth fast timer Ricky Anderson on the pole and
Clouser on the outside of row one.

Clouser quickly made his way to the lead as the green flag flew and began to
build up a substantial lead while Anderson held tough in second. Jones never
seemed to show the speed he did in qualifying and he began to fall back before
pulling off the track with mechanical problems on lap 18.

The man on the move in the early going was David Rogers who came from his
seventh starting position to second and was closing on Clouser when the first
caution flag of the event flew on lap 30 as Clayton Castetter spun into the
turn one wall. Rogers' car failed top come up to speed on the restart and he
fell back to fourth as Anderson was still looking good but being challenged by
both Tyler Thomas and Will Carroll who was up from ninth on the grid.

A spate of yellow-flag-itis began on lap 36 as Cataldi spun in turn two with
out hitting anything, pitted for a quick check and returned to the back of the
restart line-up. Only one more lap could be completed before Jarrett Snowden
found himself hard in the turn three wall backwards and the damage was enough
to put him out of the running. The final caution came out on lap 39 as Cody
Blair ended his evening up against the turn one wall.

Clouser easily led the remaining eleven laps as Thomas, the young driver from
Oklahoma driving the Tim Russell Driver Development car, ran a solid second
over the final few laps but had nothing for Clouser's Sanford Auto Dealer's
Exchange special. Car owner Bobby Sears, despite winning here two weeks ago,
said before the races began that the team had made wholesale changes to the
car and apparently they worked just fine as the Deland driver became the first
to wheel into victory lane for a second time in the Pro Late Model division
this year.

Rogers came back to nab the final spot on the podium with Anderson steady in
fourth ahead of Chad Pierce who made a late charge to grab fifth place. Sixth
through tenth were Daniel Miller, Michael Lira, Carroll, Zach Jarrell and
Ricardo Flores. Completing the finishing field were Cataldi, Blair, Snowden,
Castetter, Jerry Symons, Noah Cornman and Jones.

Jarrett Korpi took the lead from Junior Beckner following a lap 11 restart and
raced to his seventh E-Modified feature win of the year along with padding his
already big points lead. The race was a bit "choppy" with four cautions over
the 25-lap stretch but nothing bothered Korpi as the young driver from Deltona
dominated the second half of the event as he took the checker in front of
Beckner who posted his best E-Mod finish of the year. Chris Brannon took
third spot while Cody Blair ended up fourth despite numerous pit stops while
the caution was out after he himself brought out the first yellow flag when
his car stalled on the fourth circuit.

Matt Wheeler took fifth at the checker trailed by Jim Higginbotham, Jon
Compagnone, Mike Dahm, Matthew Green and George Dahm. Matthew Green won the
heat race but spun twice during the feature as his car appeared to just "lock
up" and it would not fire back up after the second spin.

When drivers hit the wall at New Smyrna Speedway, the wall always wins the
battle but don't tell that to several Mini Stock drivers who gave it a try
and, as usual, lost the contest.

The Mini Stock 25-lap feature was a crazy one from the get-go as David Russell
led the first four laps before heat winner Jason Reynolds took over and led
three laps before a high-flying Tyler Simpson breezed to the point. Lap nine
saw Daniel Brown go for a spin to bunch up the field for a restart. The field
continued to dice it out with Simpson holding the lead until Reynolds spun
coming off turn four on lap 19 and pounded the inside wall on the front
stretch doing some major damage to his machine.

On the restart Simpson and second-running Pat Well made contact coming off
turn two sending Wells hard into the back stretch wall in what was the worst
hit of the night. Point leader Wells was OK but none to pleased with Simpson
who also was forced out of the event with damage including a busted radiator.
That returned Russell to the lead and he held on the remaining five laps to
post his first win since opening night despite a car that was pushing badly
off the corners.

Reid Christiensen appeared to have turned what has so far been a dismal season
around by finishing second but he was set down in post race tech for having
too much left side weight. Brad Blanton, despite spinning out to bring out
the final caution of the race with two laps to go, still ended up in second
place after charging hard from the back of the field and taking advantage of
Christiensen's DQ. Jeff White, Daniel Brown and Mark Broat were third through
fifth and the only other cars running at the end of the race other than
Michael Seay who was testing an SCCA-legal car and was placed at the tail end
of the cars that started the race. Simpson was credited with sixth ahead of
Wells, Reynolds, Seay and Christiensen. Jeff Firestine and Ted Vulpius were
unable to start the feature.

Butch Herdegen finally had a chance to wheel his own car in the Super Stock
feature and came home the winner after his machine had already picked up two
victories this year with veteran Mike Trocki at the helm.

Heat winner Jeff Colburn got tapped from behind going into turn one on the
initial start triggering a melee that saw both Michael Bedient and Mike Dahm
hit the wall eliminating both. Colburn made a quick pit stop to check on
damage as well. Herdegen jumped out front on the start and led all 25 laps
slowed only by a lap four caution for a spinning Justin Spears. Shannon Kelly
came home second while Colburn rebounded for third in front of Mike Amato and
Preston Hunt. Becca Samsoe, George Dahm, Spears, Mike Dahm and Bedient
rounded out the top ten. Zachary Curtis did not start the feature after
suffering engine failure in the heat race.

Warren Howie of Pompano Beach won his third Strictly Stock feature of the year
outrunning heat winner Jimmy Barron and Aaron Overman.

Next Saturday night the Open Modifieds and E-Modified classes will combine to
run the Billy Gunn Memorial, a 50-lap event. Also on the card will be the
Sportsman Cars, Mini Stocks, Super Stocks and Strictly Stocks.

Re :   Desoto Speedway

RESULTS FOR 7-19

Cummings takes first Pure Stock win at Desoto

by Scott Lockwood

Saturday night's 25-lap LKQ Pick Your Parts Autoparts Pure Stock feature looked like it would end up as an all-Best family podium at the end of the night. But when the checkers finally flew after a crash filled event, it was Palmetto's Chad Cummings spoiling the Best's party in collecting his first feature win of the season.

Kyle Best grabbed the early lead with Duane Best and Jimmie Best in tow. Jimmie Best got by brother Duane for second on lap three. Kyle Best kept the lead until the handling started to slip away about 10 laps into the event. Jimmie Best Took the lead on lap 12. Less than two laps later trouble broke out in the front of the field when Jimmie Best spun in front of the field in turn four As Best spun around he was hit hard by Kyle Best, ending the night for both drivers. Duane Best inherited the lead with Cody Allen, who started deep in the field, up to second and Chad Cummings third. Dennis Wilson went from fourth to second on the restart. Caution flew again one lap later for the stalled car of Bobby Mobley in turn four.

On the restart, Best and Wilson got together heading into the first turn, sending Best hard into the turn one wall. Wilson returned to the track after quick repairs, but the wreck meant that the Best's wound up with three damaged race cars instead of a sweep of the podium. Cummings assumed the lead on the restart. Wilson up from fifth to third on the restart. For the the final 10 laps, Wilson tried to get by Nick Malverty for second, but neither driver had anything for Cummings over the closing stages of the race as he went on to his first win of the season.
Malverty finished second with Wilson third. Malverty was later disqualified for being found too light in tech, handing the runner-up spot to Wilson and third to Brian Hillyer.

The J.D. Byrider Open Wheel Modifieds were also on hand for a 25-lap event. The race started as a three-way battle between polesitter Joey Logan, Dalton Nelson and L.J. Grimm at the green flag. Three laps in, contact between the lead cars sent Grimm to the lead and eventually forced Logan to the pits with a flat left rear tire. Cody Stickler, winner the last time out for the modifieds, knifed his way through the field and found himself in the lead by lap six. On a restart Grimm and Stickler spent several laps running side by side for the lead, with Grimm eventually getting the advantage. Right before the race's halfway point, Stickler and Nick Hernandez got together going down the back stretch but amazingly kept their cars off the wall. Hernandez came out of the contact in second place and set his sights on Grimm. For several laps Hernandez stayed right on Grimm's bumper, but couldn't make the pass.

With two laps to go, Hernandez made contact with Grimm, causing him to spin out. Officials sent Hernandez to the rear as a result of the incident.
On the final restart, Stickler lined up to the outside of Grimm on the front row. The duo were in a near dead-heat coming to the white flag and stayed that way for most of the final lap. Stickler made the inside line work over the final two turns and beat Grimm to the line in a photo finish. Nelson finished third.

In other action Saturday night, Aaron Williamson took the win in the 25-lap Take Aim Gun Range Sportsmen class; Ronnie Robinson took the win in the Mini Stock feature; Darren Bass won the Dwarf Car feature; Darin Coker took the victory in the Legends main event; and Dustin Wilson took the win in the Rookie 4 feature.

Next week, the Joey Coulter Pro Truck Series makes its return to Desoto Speedway. Street Stocks, Cowboy Cadillacs, Mini Stocks, Bombers, Rookie 4's and Modified Minis will also be on the night's card of racing.

Richard Livernois, Jr. Picks Up First Career Win
In Limited Late Models At East Bay Raceway Park

But it would be Tim George holding off Boyd, Jr. making his way up to second when the checkered flag waved. Jimmy Ballew and Billy Boyd, Jr. won their heats.

In the 15-lap Q Auto & Injury Attorneys Street Stocks feature, Tim Gay made it six for six as he has won each time he has started this year.

Re :   Five Flags Speedway

RESULTS FOR 7-11

JONES, RUBLE SPLIT ALLEN TURNER PLM FEATURE WINS;
JOHANNA STILL LEADS SERIES POINTS RACE

by Chuck Corder

Garrett Jones is treating Pensacola like his personal playground. The last time the Allen Turner Pro Late Models drove at Five Flags Speedway in May, the 14-year-old Pro Late Model driver from Mooresville, N.C., nosed out Milton’s Junior Niedecken for his first career victory at the famed half-mile asphalt oval. Jones made it two in a row Friday at Pensacola’s high banks, holding off local darling Johanna Long and capturing the opening 20-lap PLM feature. Another teen, Ryan Luza from Cypress, Texas, finished second and Korey Ruble rounded out the podium. Long finished a painstakingly eighth after a spin in Turn 2 on the final lap. “Racing with Johanna like that was a lotta fun,” Jones said.

Long rebounded in the 30-lap finale later in the night, finishing runner-up to Ruble’s victory. Jones, who started tail end after the entire field was inverted, rallied home in fifth after early troubles. “I messed up that first race,” admitted Long, who maintained her series points lead. “It was my fault. Garrett Jones did an awesome job. The second race, I was a little too tight. But I can’t complain with second place.”

In the opener, the youngster and the former NASCAR Nationwide Series driver were door-to-door for the final eight laps, inches from each other before. They swapped leads all around the speedway before Long washed out in Turn 2 and spun to the bottom of the racetrack. Jones went onto his second consecutive win in the opening 20-lap PLM feature. Long finished a heartbreaking eighth. “I thought it’d be a lot closer between me and Johanna,” said Jones, who was one of five teenagers to compete in the double feature. “I’m not sure what happened coming off (Turn) 2.”

After an hour-long rain delay, Jones earned the pole (16.716 seconds) in a hotly-contested qualifying session that saw the 16-car field separated by less than four-tenths. It was Long, though, whose No. 11 looked to be fastest in the early stages. She shot up to second immediately and began stalking Jones. Long, 22, never let the high school freshman out of her sight. She was up to Jones’ bumper midway and began showing her nose by Lap 11. Long got great runs coming out of Turn 2 to take leads on the backstretch. Jones, though, refused to yield his spot and proved to be the better car coming out of turn Nos. 3 and 4. The pair continued to swap paint around the racetrack until a storybook ending turned sour when Long lost control of her car.

In the finale, after the field was completely inverted, a huge crash on the opening lap in Turn 3 marred the 30 lapper. Half of the field was collected in some fashion. When Bryce Dulabhan’s No. 22 trickled down the high bank in Turn 3, he collected Jones and sent him airborne. Jones was OK, as were the other affected drivers. His Electro Fuse Chevy No. 88? Not so much. Jones brought it in with his right, front quarter panel dangling in the wind as he drove to his pit.

The No. 88 team worked tirelessly during the red flag to get Jones back on the track. He was able to make it back out before the green flag dropped again, but almost immediately brought it back to the pits when another caution flew a lap later. Jones was happy to head to New Smyrna with a fifth-place finish.

Ruble took the lead on the second restart and survived several more yellows to distance himself from Long and the rest of the 16 cars. Junior Niedecken continues to be consistent. The 57-year-old Milton driver, who came into the night second in points, posted a pair of top-finishes. While Niedecken fell to third in the standings after Jones’ win catapulted him to second, he still remains just 18 points behind Long. “I had to save the tires to have something there at the end,” Ruble said. “The crew worked really hard. We had carburetor problems in practice. That first race, I was pretty bad. But we held on in the second one.”

Pro Trucks

Okie Mason scored a hat trick Friday night at Five Flags Speedway. The 52-year-old veteran from Eight Mile, Ala., won his third consecutive Pro Trucks 25-lap feature to pad his points lead. Mason took the lead on Lap 3 from Ty Roberts, on the pole after the dice invert, and quickly built a two-thirds of a straightaway lead by Lap 7. Hollywood Hodivsky and Jay Jay Day, who finished second and third respectively, gave chase but couldn’t carve enough off of Mason’s lead. “The truck is decent,” Mason understated. “I know I’m winning, but you always want to get better.”

Despite Mason being his harshest critic, he made Friday night’s win look like an effortlessly, Sunday drive. Day set the fast time in qualifying, but his stuff under the hood wasn’t up to snuff during the feature. “We’ve been fighting it the last couple weeks, but it was a good race tonight,” Day said. “I wish we could’ve gotten a little bit closer to Okie.”

Beef “O” Brady’s Sportsmans

There are multiple divisions that compete at Five Flags Speedway that can lay claim to being the most-competitive local class week in and week out. And they each have valuable arguments. Unfortunately, they’d be wrong. With apologies to the other divisions, no series holds a candle to the Beef “O” Brady’s Sportsman.

A dozen cars battled for 25 laps Friday at America’s Favorite Home Track. A third of the field had a legitimate shot at coming home with the checkered flag. When the dust settled, an unlikely driver found himself on top. Johnny Greene Jr. got his first win of the season, getting the better of buddy Steve Buttrick, Brannon Fowler and Shanna Ard, respectively — three other series winners this year. “That was the longest 25 laps I’ve ever drove,” said an exhausted Greene, a charter boat captain by day. “I think I spent more time looking behind me than in front of me. It’s an honor to be on the front stretch with Brannon and Steve. They’re class guys.”

Greene had the advantage of starting P1 thanks to a two-car invert following fast-qualifier Fowler’s die roll. Buttrick started inside of Row 2, directly behind his friend, Greene. With Ard to Buttrick’s side, the four of them shot off like rockets when the opening green flag dropped. Fowler tasted the lead when the leaders came out of Turn 2 on the opening lap, but Greene charged back ahead before they made it back to the start-finish line.

Buttrick, Fowler and Ard each earning time in the second position. But it was Buttrick, who spent the most time behind Greene.Buttrick came into Friday night riding high off back-to-back feature victories. He decided to throw a little seasoning into the night by choosing to ride on the same tires he won with June 27. Buttrick followed Greene around the track for most of the race, protecting the teammates’ advantage over the rest of the field, namely Fowler and Ard. But Buttrick disputed that. “The car wasn’t as good as it has been,” he said. “It was pushing a little bit. We gave it a couple of chances, but we couldn’t get by him.”

Butler U-Pull-It Bombers

It was a sweet Friday night at Five Flags Speedway for B.J. Leytham. From heats to features between Pensacola and Mobile International Speedway, the Mobile driver has competed in 16 races in 2014. He has won all 16 of them. It only seemed natural, then, that Leytham led all 20 laps of the Butler U-Pull-It Bombers feature Friday at the famed half-mile asphalt oval. Leytham qualified second behind teammate Gino Denmark’s track-record setting time of 20.716 seconds, but won the pole after Denmark rolled a “2” on the die. “I really wasn’t expecting that,” Denmark said. “I expected B.J. to break it, but this is pretty cool.”

Leytham’s 20.720 time actually would’ve broke the Bombers previous mark of 21.804 seconds — set by current Pro Trucks driver Jay Jay Day almost four years to the date (July 16, 2010) — as well. There was some talk Leytham might start at the tail end of the field to spice up the feature, but in the end he happily accepted all the clean air he could get. “I’m not real sure what happened; lotta confusion,” Leytham said. “Just some miscommunication, but (I’m) always glad to start on the pole.”

Re :   Desoto Speedway

RESULTS FOR 6-28

Stickler takes Modified win at Desoto

by Scott Lockwood

For most of Saturday night's J.D. Byrider Open Wheel Modified feature at Desoto Speedway, it looked as if D.J. Hoelzle would lead all 40-laps of the night's main event. But when the dust settled after a frantic final four laps that saw Hoelzle and other leaders eliminated with mechanical issues and crashes, it was Cody Stickler who found himself sitting in the winner's circle with his third feature win of the year.

Hoelzle started on the pole and quickly began pulling away at the drop of the green flag. Eight laps in Dalton Nelson and L.J. Grimm got together racing for third place, sending both cars into a spin. Both cars were able to continue, with Grimm keeping the third spot and Nelson being sent to the rear of the 10-car field by race officials.

Palmetto's Nick Hernandez had worked his way up through the field and passed Eric Purcell for third lap 28. For the next eight laps, Hoelzle, Grimm, Hernandez and Purcell ran nose-to-tail around the 3/8-mile oval. As the field completed lap 36 Hoelzle got loose and spun in turn one, nearly taking Hernandez into the wall. Purcell also spun into the infield trying to avoid Hoelzle's car. Hoelzle's night came to an end with an apparent engine failure.

Grimm and Hernandez started on the front row for the double-file restart with four laps to go. Coming into turn four after the restart, Purcell was challenging Hernandez for the second spot. Purcell broke loose and collected Hernandez, sending both cars nearly head-on into the wall. Neither driver was injured in the incident. Stickler started on the outside of the front row on the final restart and nosed just ahead of Grimm at the end of lap 37. Stickler would pull away over the final laps and cruised to his third win of the year. Grimm finished second and extended his points lead over Nelson. Cameron Ray finished third.

Desoto Speedway also hosted the Florida School Bus Figure 8 Championship. Jason Graham started on the pole and led the first few laps. Mike Gamache, winner of the last school bus race at Desoto, grabbed the lead on a restart and appeared to be in control of the event. At about the halfway point, Gamache was going through the middle of the "x" when he collided with William Hindman at full speed. The violent wreck - one of the worst accidents in recent times at Desoto - turned Gamache's bus into a fireball the flipped completely over before coming to a rest. Hindman had to be cut out of his destroyed bus, while Gamache jumped out of his wrecked bus to the amazement of the capacity crowd. Graham assumed the lead after the accident and led the rest of the way.

In other action Saturday night, Bradenton's Dennis Wilson held off John Sappraicone Jr. to win the 35-lap Sunbelt Rentals of Fort Myers Street Stock feature; Johnny Marra picked up his first win in the Mini Stock feature; Richard Nelson won the Cowboy Cadillac main event; Michael Cherry won the Pro Figure 8 feature; Clint Snyder won his second consecutive Bomber feature; and Hindman won the demolition derby that took place less than half an hour after the bus accident.

Desoto Speedway will return to racing action on July 12. The Turner Tree and Landscape Super Late Models will headline the night of racing. July 5th the speedway will have Drifting under the lights. drifting event starts at 5 till midnight

RESULTS FOR 6-28

Final Race Night before Mid-Season break ends with a bang

by BRP Media

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 saw him retire his automobile at lap 9 win a caution was displayed for the lapped car of Ronnie Soltis (61). The field would go green for the remainder of the race with Sanders and Snyder edging closer to Crouse, time would run out and Crouse would take the checkered flag and the win. Followed closely across the line by Sanders, Snyder, Nichols and rounding out the top 5 was Duane Paul Jr. (51).

E-Modifieds was the next feature to take to the track, and this race would have another drastic change in the original line up as David Arivette (75) and Shane Williams (21) would swap rides from the heat races. This leaving Kyle Arvin (96) and Caleb Harris (17) to set the pace for this event. Arvin would lead until lap 16 when charges from Williams would see Williams take the lead and cruise to the checkered flags. Williams would be followed by Arvin, Jason Gamble (73), Sean Babcock (00) and leader of the pack Tom Sheehan (5).

The V-8 Thunder and Lighting series came out in full force, as the 25 cars slated to take the green filled the track. John Florkowski (54) and Jeff Stalnaker Jr. (9) lead the field to the green flag, Florkowski would charge to an early lead, with no cautions until lap 9 when lapped traffic would get in the way of the leaders and William Edwards (08) would take advantage and gain the first position. After a series of restarts, the race would see another long green flag until Lap 22 when Josh Hughes (14) would take a slow but not so easy roll-over on the front straight away. The green flag would be displayed again and Edwards would lead to the checkered flag, but not have any luck in tech, as Williams would be disqualified and relinquish the win to Shane Williams (11K), Williams would be followed across the line by Florkowski, Justin Durbin (3G), Jonathan Appleby (69A) and Marlon Durbin (1M) would round out the top five.

The Rent-N-Roll Gladiator division was up next with 4 equally matched cars, that made for a great race. Steve "Scooby" Johnson would take the early lead as Robert Gullette (2) would attempt to pass every lap, but could not get a good enough run to make the pass. Scooby would breeze to the checkered flag, Gullette would relinquish second spot to Stephen Frankland (7UK) on the final lap because of a flat tire, Gullette held on to third and was followed across the line by Ken McCloud (10).

Bubba Raceway Park Owners, Management and Staff would like to thank all the drivers, car owners, crews and fans for a great first half of the 2014 season. We will be taking a break for the month of July to do some much needed maintenance and up keep on the facility. We look forward to seeing you again in August. Join us August 1, 2014 for Open Practice. Then August 2, 2014 for the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series $3000. to win, Race #4 of the Hobby Stock Hercules Series $1000. to win, E-Modifieds, V-8 Thunder Stocks and Gladiators.

Re :   Orlando Speedworld

RESULTS FOR 6-20

NINE DRIVERS VISIT VICTORY LANE FRIDAY NIGHT
AT ORLANDO SPEEDWORLD

Zachary Curtis honored his friend Zack Donatti by putting Zack’s number – 9z – in Victory Lane Friday night.

by Dave Westerman

A midday rainstorm did not dampen things this week at Orlando SpeedWorld as the skies cleared and temperatures cooled for a great night of racing action that included nine feature events.

Chad Pierce led the first lap of the Modified feature but could not hold off a very fast Zach Harris who took over on lap two and never looked back in winning his first race in the class. The entire 25 laps went green to checker and Harris was well in front of Pierce at the checker. Shain Held came home in third while Matt Jarrett made a late pass on Junior Beckner to claim fourth. Beckner was fifth just ahead of Doc McKinney while Dennis Wheeler and Billy Tokes completed the finishers. Harris and Pierce won the heats.

Whitney Poole led the opening 11 laps of the Pro Truck feature but spun on the backstretch handing the lead and eventual win to Becca Monopoli. Monopoli, who won the heat race earlier, led the remaining distance for her third win of the year. Donnie Burkhalter made his first start of the year a good one finishing a strong second while Poole recovered to take third. Eddie Lichtenberger was fourth trailed by Kelly Ross and Rich Cordis.

Heat race winner Ron Gustafson and Austin Carr put on a great side-by-side racing show early in the Sportsman feature before Carr took over to score the victory with his new car. Gustafson finished a close second ahead of Steve Barnes and Daniel Conlin, Jr.

Zachary Curtis changed the number on his Saturn from his regular #63 to #9z in honor of his friend and fellow race driver Zack Donatti who passed away a few days earlier from injuries suffered in a work-related accident at the young age of 19. Curtis then went out and led every lap of the Four Cylinder Stock feature in dominant fashion. Curtis lapped up through fifth place as the race ran all the way under green. Shane Sutorus came home second followed by Jeff Gross. Eric Hodge took fourth ahead of Kendra Gregory, Damien Kwaak, Travis Carr, Troy Gregory and Michael Hanna. Heat race wins went to Curtis and Gross.

After Megan Matheny and Robert Skinner tangled while fighting for the lead, Warren Howie took over the top spot and went on to win his first Strictly Stock feature of the year. Skinner hit the backstretch wall head-on but was OK even though his Camaro was eliminated from competition while Matheny continued and came back to finish second in her Ford T-Bird to Howie’s big Chevrolet. Crash Tyner had his best finish of the year taking third in a Lincoln ahead of Jamie Sullivan, Cody Carr, Robert Skinner, Tommy Flinn and James Skinner. Howie and Matheny won the heats.

David Owen won the Legend Car feature after a great race-long duel with “Too Tall” Dave Gleason who had to settle for the runner-up spot. Whitney Poole drove Owen’s back-up car to third place.

Colton Bramlett won both the heat and feature in the Bandoleros over Steven Hollinger and Brandi Bibeau. Meanwhile, the Antique Race Cars wrapped up the evening’s racing action with a pair of races. Veteran driver Wayne Ashton topped the race for six-cylinder and Ford flatheads over Scott Fobes and Dave Davis while the V-8 feature race went to Larry Larivee in his #711 over Ron Hess, Tobi Smith and Billy Belflower.

Orlando SpeedWorld will now take the months of July and August off, then return to action on Friday night September 5th. In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the facility, adult admission prices will be reduced to the 1974 admission of $5 for the remainder of the season.

Re :   Southern Pro-Am Truck Series (SPATS)

JR Garcia Dominates Pro Truck Race at Bronson Speedway

JR Garcia Dominates Pro Truck Race at Bronson Speedway/Robert Korson Photography

Bronson Speedway, May 10, 2014: Bronson Speedway’s track announcer said it best, “race fans, get ready to see the state’s best Pro Truck drivers…” OK, so not all were there, but four of the state’s best Pro Truck drivers in JR Garcia, Mica Williams, Jessica Murphy and Steven King where there to show their support for the Series and Bronson’s local oval race track. The Pro Truck Series considers Bronson’s three-eighths-mile, high-bank asphalt oval track to be a hidden gem, and it is apparent that this small town race track is making every effort to support their drivers and traveling series. Many of Saturday night’s drivers share the same opinion in that the track is fun to race on and more drivers should make the trip to show their support. Although the Pro Truck count was less than expected, the track and Series still delivered on the guaranteed payout while giving the teams a break on the number of race laps.

This was the second race of the newly formed Southern Pro Am Truck Series, and no one could be happier than Pro Truck driver JR Garcia. Garcia, of the number 13 Pro Truck sponsored by Ambassador Racing, started the night by driving the fastest qualifying time with a 14.844 lap time. Mica Williams, the previous feature race winner, and Jessica Murphy also ran impressive qualifying times that were .018 behind. The Pro Truck race was one of the highlights of the night as local race fans were able to experience the Series’ Pro Trucks which share many characteristics of NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series.

JR Garcia, who is one of Florida’s most experienced Pro Truck drivers and has a full time job teaching kids and adults how to race, won the 35 lap feature race in convincing fashion. Garcia started on the pole and led each lap from start to finish. Garcia did received some pressure from Series point’s leader Mica Williams, who finished second in the number 84 Racecar Engineering sponsored Pro Truck.

In the post-race interview, we learned that Garcia and his family own and operate Ambassador Racing, a kart racing oval track in Wimauma, Florida. The tack holds state and national kart racing events, offers driving instruction for racing vehicles from go-karts to Pro Trucks, provides open racing every Tuesday and Friday night, and they provide a weekly racing summer camp for kids ages 5 and up. The summer camp uses the S.T.E.M. program to teach kids how racing uses science, technology, engineering and math. The racing summer camp is a great way to provide your child with real world life skills while having fun racing.

The Southern Pro Am Truck Series’ next Pro Truck race event is scheduled for May 31, 2014 at Bronson Speedway. For more information or to reserve a Pro Truck to race, please visit SouthernProTrucks.com.

Re :   Florida United Promoters Series

FUPS cancels remaining races for 2014

The Florida United Promoters Series announced today that they will suspend the balance of events for 2014. The series has struggled to land races at other tracks in Florida other than Auburndale Speedway for the last two years. It saddens and disappoints me to see the series has not grown as I had envisioned with the support of Florida’s tracks to join in hosting FUPS events, stated series director Rick Williams. We really tried to make this a series that the racers could be proud to support and be successful but unfortunately it just didn’t happen.

We would like to thank everyone from the competitors, sponsors, media associates, track owners, and most of all the fans that supported FUPS for the last three years. A huge thank you to Hoosier Racing Tires, Sunoco Race Fuels, Progressive Race Engines, Finish Line Fabrication, & Racecar Engineering for their support from the start.

Scofield vs. Dorer Feud Ends with Disqualifications and the End of a Series
On Track and Off-Track Problems Leads to FUPS Closing Doors

from Speed51.com

Steve Dorer said that Florida United Promoters Race Director Rick Williams is a friend, but he will never race for him again.  Williams essentially assured that would happen Tuesday, as he announced that the FUPS Super Late Model tour had ceased operations following Saturday's event at Auburndale Speedway in Winter Haven, Florida.

This comes after one of the strangest set of events in recent short track racing memory.  Williams was the race director calling the shots in the Billie Harvey Memorial 100 at Auburndale Saturday, an event that saw mass confusion, poor sportsmanship, rough driving and some bizarre calls that left fingers pointing in every direction.

The 100-lap race was already more than two hours old after being littered with cautions, spins and drivers being sent to the tail end of the field.  The key players in this story didn't meet met up on the racetrack until lap 89, when former FUPS champion Steve Dorer battled with race leader Jeff Scofield, who has had lots of previous success at the Super Late Model level in Florida. 

Perhaps the worst thing that could have happened was that these two drivers, who already had a history, were left to settle things on what already had been a crazy night.

With three laps to go in the 100-lap feature, Dorer used the bumper to get under Scofield.  The next corner, Dorer got the front end of Scofield's car.  As a result of the contact, Dorer went around for a spin and both cars were sent to the back by Williams, or at least that was the plan. 

Dorer didn't like the call.  When Speed51.com caught up with Dorer Tuesday, he stated that in the drivers meeting Saturday, Williams told drivers that if a driver was spun, he would get his spot back.  Dorer refused to give up his spot and set off a 15-minute chase to remove him from the racetrack, which involved golf carts and wreckers to block his path.

"I did what we had asked the official (in the drivers meeting).  I moved him into the second groove and I went to the lead," stated Dorer in a phone interview on Tuesday.  "He did exactly what he talked about in the meeting in retaliation."

Earlier in the day, Dorer and Scofield had gotten into a disagreement during the drivers meeting that left both drivers with boiling blood.  

"It all started in the drivers meeting," said Dorer.  "We were talking about safety and rough driving on the race track.  Jeff spoke up and said. 'What do you call rough driving?  We are on a quarter mile, what if I go in there and move a guy?'"

This started a debate that turned heated in the eyes of some as drivers tried to clarify the rules.

"I brought it up because two years ago I moved Steve Dorer with three to go," Scofield told Speed51.com Tuesday.  "We went side-by-side in four and into turn one.  After that race I got out in victory lane as the winner with the flag and they told me I was DQ'ed.  I had not been back since then." 

According to Dorer, Williams said that if a driver wrecks a driver who did a bump-and-run, then they will be sent to the rear and the spun car would get its spot back.  This is where the confusion started after Dorer had been spun out of the lead. 

"The crowd was going nuts as they sent both of us to the rear," said Dorer.  "We had all had enough.  I was like no, I played by your rules, I moved him into the second groove and now you want to go back on your word.  I didn't want to move him at all and now I got wrecked and I am going to the rear?"

Dorer refused to go to the rear of the field and refused to leave the track which then led to Williams calling an end to the race three laps short of its scheduled 100-lap distance.  After all the shenanigans between Dorer and Scofield, Jessica Murphy found herself in the lead and was sent to victory lane when the race was called off at lap 97.   Dorer was eventually disqualified for his actions.

As Murphy took her car that was damaged to victory lane, officials changed their decision and ordered a restart to finish the race.  Murphy's car was not able to continue, but the race went on for its final three laps even after she had been initially declared its winner.

"He (Dorer) drove around the track and drove in circles," said Scofield.  "It took them 15 minutes to block him and get him off the track.  I figured we were done and I got out of my car only to find out we would finish the final three laps."
 
According to several reports, Williams left the tower stating the race was over.  Rex Guy, who owns and operates Auburndale Speedway, was not ready for the fans to go home without seeing the end of the race's 100-lap scheduled distance. 

The race was restarted only to see more craziness and to see Scofield getting disqualified on the final lap for spinning Brandon Dushcherer.

"I'll take partial blame for the wreck at the end," added Scofield. "I told that to him (Brandon Dushcherer) too, but that's racing at Auburndale."

Scofield actually got into Duscherer twice during the closing laps and was disqualified for his second offense.  Scofield was the third driver to be parked that night as David Green was also penalized early in the race.
Some reports claimed that Scofield almost hit an official on the track after the race, which was a surprise to even him.

"When I came around to get the checkered flag I got the black flag," said Scofield.  "At that point I got pissed off and stood on the gas and went sideway through the corners.  When I came off two there was a car on the track and a car in the X.  If I did drive by an official I was totally unaware of it.  There was never anybody that I saw.  I am pretty good at my targets.  If I aim at something I am going to hit it."
 
After the conclusion of the 100-lap race, the finger pointing began.

"The director had no control," said Dorer.  "There had been no policing up front all night and that was a key problem with the series."

Dorer has worked closely with the series and was seeking to help them succeed, but he cited recent events such as this one as the reason for a dwindling car count and lack of control from the series.

"Rex and Rick argued about the last three laps, I am not sure," added Scofield.  "The series was pretty much done anyways.  As for me and Dorer, that thing goes way back.  He's just a moron to me.  That's my opinion."

Scofield says he won't be back to Auburndale.

As a result of the on-track incident, Dorer chimed in with his opinion of Scofield as well. 

"Jeff Scofield is a talented driver, but he chooses to not use his ability on level playing field at times," said Dorer.  "I think he puts a black eye on racing in Florida."

Lost in all the shuffle was Bruce Bennett, who was left holding the checkered flag at the end of the night in a race that was not deemed official until Monday. 

"I am very disappointed," said Williams on Tuesday.  "Disappointed drivers can't act more professional?  I am not sure if it's egos or what.  They all get into this mindset you are not going to beat me.  Perhaps I should have sent both of them home after the drivers meeting, but they are grown men."

It was a strange way for a series to go out, but Williams offered some final words for the future.

"Communication is the key to a series surviving in Florida," added Williams. “Track owners need to work together to let their egos aside to keep everyone in the mix.  Success will not come without teamwork."

Dorer gave insight as to what is needed, but understands it's a hard job.

"It's easy to say I can do it when it comes to running a series," added Dorer.  “Bottom line is, it's not easy at all."

Rex Guy has told Speed51.com that even with the series folding Auburndale Speedway would still run the scheduled Late Model events this season at the Winter Haven, Florida track.

Re :   TBARA suspends Aguilar

Joey Aguilar Suspended by TBARA for Remainder of 2014 Season

 By Richard Golardi

 The Tampa Bay Area Racing Association has confirmed that they have suspended Joey Aguilar, the current point leader and winner of all 3 feature races this year. Aguilar’s suspension is for the remainder of the 2014 season, and is effective immediately. He is being suspended because of unsportsmanlike conduct in the Winners Circle ceremonies in the last race at Orlando Speedworld on Saturday, April 19th. Aguilar was one of two drivers that were placed on a five race probation after the prior TBARA race at Desoto Speedway on March 22nd.

The two drivers that were penalized with a fine and five race probation after the March race at Desoto were Aguilar and Shane Butler. I was told that Shane Butler’s status with the club remains the same, meaning that he still has four races remaining on his five race probation. After these two drivers finished in first and second place at Orlando Speedworld in last Saturday’s race, both were required to stop on the front straight of the track. This is reportedly where the incidents happened. A TBARA official told me that there were some taunts and gestures by Joey himself and also one or more members of his crew. Shane Butler and crew were also stopped on the front straight. The club determined that these actions were unsportsmanlike, and decided that a suspension was warranted.

After the prior race at Desoto Speedway, a small number of race fans had expressed their displeasure at what they saw and heard coming from the Winners Circle, specifically referring to harsh language. If this same scenario were to occur again at another race, it could be embarrassing for the TBARA. They are known as a club who pride themselves for being a family-oriented entertainment option. Many TBARA tracks even have a “Family Section” in the grandstands (no alcohol seating section). This dedication to serve as a family entertainment option meant that TBARA would have to act swiftly after this latest incident.

I was also told that the TBARA would no longer require that the top three finishers stop on the front straight after the race. Only the feature race winner would now be required to stop on the front straight, and the second and third place finishers would proceed directly to the inspection area (in the pits). This is in contrast to the other sprint car series in Florida, at Citrus County Speedway. Citrus has been requiring the top five finishers to stop on the front straight for durometer measurements of their tires immediately after the race is completed (they have an “inspection shed” for further post-race inspections, next to the pit area).

In addition, TBARA would begin doing durometer measurements of the American Racer tires starting at the next race in May at New Smyrna Speedway. A durometer is a device that measures of the hardness of a material. These would be done as part of the post-race inspection. One of the reasons for this change (TBARA has not done post-race durometer measurements previously) was that this was a procedure currently being done in other sprint car series using American Racer tires. These other series were the Citrus County Speedway Sprints and the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Series.

This effectively leaves no favorite for the TBARA championship this year, even though Shane Butler has finished in second place in all three series races behind Aguilar. Earlier this month, I did ask Butler if he was committed to running all of the remaining 2014 TBARA races. He replied that his only decision was to run the next race (4/19 at Orlando), and he was also preparing for an entry in the Little 500 at Anderson Speedway in May. He had not yet decided about the remainder of the 2014 TBARA season. After the cancellation of this weekend’s race at Three Palms Speedway (fences and grandstands not installed), there are now ten TBARA races remaining, if Three Palms completes construction by 10/31. Citrus County Speedway still has seven non-wing sprint car races remaining, and will host the TBARA again in October for the Frank Riddle Memorial.

I have also learned that the TBARA rules do not have a set suspension period listed if a driver on probation commits an unsportsmanlike act. It is possible that a driver could be suspended for one race, or several races, or for an entire racing season, depending on the severity of the rules violation, or on the conduct of the driver. The racing club officials made the decision that the act committed while on probation was severe enough to warrant a season-long suspension, as I was told by a series official today.

I spoke to Joey Aguilar today by telephone, and he informed me that upon getting out of his car in the Winners Circle at Orlando on Saturday night, he went down into a squatting position, and then while pumping his fist yelled, “five in a row, baby!” Joey told me that he did not make any taunting gestures or statements toward Shane Butler, or toward any official. He feels that the suspension penalty is not fair, and he believes that it should be overturned. He is certain that his actions could not be construed to be unsportsmanlike. In addition, he stated that he does wish to race in the remaining TBARA races this year, if and when the suspension is overturned. He still has a goal of winning the TBARA championship this year. I have no further information on if a protest will be made by his team, but Joey does wish to protest the suspension.

The next upcoming pavement sprint car races in Florida are during the month of May. First up is the monthly visit to Citrus County Speedway on May 3rd for non-wing sprint car racing. Then, the aforementioned TBARA race at New Smyrna Speedway on May 10th, followed by Showtime Speedway’s winged sprint car racing on May 31st. Sandwiched between these last two events is the Little 500 in Central Indiana on May 24th, its traditional date on the night before the Indianapolis 500. Several Floridians are making plans to make the trip north to Anderson, Indiana next month. It looks likely that there will be in excess of four drivers from Florida, which was the Florida driver total for the past two years.

Re :   East Bay Raceway Park

ATTENTION ALL MINOR DRIVERS. PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY
SAFETY ADDENDUM FOR ALL MINOR DRIVERS

Due to the alarming incidents that have happened at neighboring race tracks in the state of Florida, East Bay Raceway Park is taking a pro-active move to help cut down on the type injuries that have been happening to our younger racers. All drivers ages 14-17 will be required to have an SFI-38.1 approved head and neck restraint system in place and fully operational at all times that they are on the racing surface at EAST BAY RACEWAY PARK. This will be mandatory for all racers under the age of 18. It is not mandatory for anyone 18 or above, but it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for them as well. Insurance may force us to go to a full mandatory for every driver status if these injuries continue.
 
East Bay Raceway Park has gone to all three of the area suppliers and tried to set up a better price for all of the units that meet this SFI-38.1 standard.

Hot Rodgers Racing Supply @ 813/882-3227
Outlaw South Racing Parts @ 813/526-3521
Racecar Engineering @ 1-800/882-7231

If you mention that you are racing at East Bay Raceway Park, they have all agreed to give you a little bit better pricing in the next couple of months to help everyone get them. Ask for the East Bay Raceway Park Safety pricing.

We realize that these items are very expensive and that is why we have reached out to the area parts suppliers to try to help get you a better deal on them. We hope that you understand that it is your safety that we are most concerned about. There has just been too many injuries and fatalities to not try to make it safer for all involved. We also realize that this is not the total answer as there are a number of risks that are involved in this sport and we are committed to addressing all safety related issues to make it safer for all involved.

To help all minors to afford these items, we at East Bay Raceway Park will offer an incentive to each of you. If you get the SFI 38.1 approved device, then register with us here at the track. We will offer a $5.00 bonus incentive for up to 20 weeks. You have to be registered and we will check each race to make sure that it is being worn properly. If so, then we will give an extra $5.00 added to your pay each night for up to 20 events. This will basically give you a rebate of $100 towards your purchase.

This will be mandatory for all minors effective June 7, 2014.
