Re :   Five Flags Speedway

RESULTS FOR 8-22

DAWSONVILLE'S DAVIS EARNS FIRST CAREER PLM WIN AT 5 FLAGS
JONES CAPTURES FINALE, CUTS INTO JOHANNA'S LEAD

by Chuck Corder

One wonders if Dawsonville, Ga., filled with joyful noise on Friday night. When Bill Elliott’s star was rising in NASCAR, each time he won, his hometown would ring a bell to celebrate the win. The tradition has continued for young Chase Elliott, the 2011 Snowball Derby champion, and current NASCAR Nationwide Series points leader.

Spencer Davis did Dawsonville proud Friday night at Five Flags Speedway. The teenager captured his first career Allen Turner Pro Late Model feature at the famed half-mile oval. “We’ve had fast car last two times been here,” Davis said, “and to get that first win in Pensacola, at such an historic track, it’s really cool.”

Johanna Long finished second in the opener to extend her points lead while Junior Niedecken rounded out the podium. But in the 30-lap finale, she spun with 27 laps complete and her 19-point cushion was dwindled to four by night’s end.

Defending track champion Garrett Jones, who finished fourth in the opener, won the second feature in dramatic fashion when all heck broke loose on the final lap. Davis finished as the runner-up in the finale. Ray Black was third. “I’m waiting to get excited,” Jones said. “I’m not sure if I won it or not. We didn’t have the best car this weekend. The hot temperatures got us out of our groove.”

Ryan Luza crossed first in the 30 lapper, but track officials penalized the Cypress, Texas, driver for turning then-leader Bret Holmes on the white flag lap directly under the flagstand. It moved everyone up, including Long who rallied to come home sixth after the late spin. “We have to figure something out,” Long said after the opener. “We had another really fast racecar like we do every time we come Five Flags. Second stinks. We’ll win one before it’s over.”

Early-bird fans that arrived when the gates opened at 4 Friday afternoon, covered up with umbrellas. Not because of unexpected showers, but to escape the suffering heat. It was as if the sun was leaning against you.

Milton’s Joe Richbourg held off Sportsmen stalwarts Shanna Ard, the current points leader, and Steve Buttrick, who has won four straight Sportsmen Snowball Derby titles, to win the 25-lap Beef “O” Brady’s Sportsman feature. “The car was perfect,” Richbourg said. “I had a blast.”

Ard and Buttrick might have a pair of resumes that look a little more stellar, but Richbourg drove his lines and refused to yield the lead to either of the perennial favorites. “He was pretty hard to pass,” Ard said of Richbourg. “I worked on him, did everything I could.”

The other major storyline that came from Friday night’s entertaining Sportsman feature was the nightmare for Brannon Fowler. The Molino driver, and two-time class track champion, started the race. However, when a caution came out before the opening lap was complete, Fowler headed to the pits. He did not return.

Butler U-Pull-It Bombers

B.J.  Leytham has won in a variety of ways in 2014.On Friday at Five Flags Speedway, the Mobile driver was the fastest qualifier, but chose to start at the tail end of the 11-car field. Like every race for Leytham this season, it appeared it mattered little. He crossed the start-finish line first for his fourth 20-lap Butler U-Pull-It Bombers feature and his 19th overall between Pensacola and Mobile International Speedway. But Leytham was disqualified in technical inspection for an improper front end. Leytham had won every feature he started since late 2013, including the Bombers Snowball Derby last December.

With the DQ, that pushed Geno Denmark (Leytham’s teammate) to his first career win at Five Flag, Colin Kraft was second and Michael Nelson moved to third. Denmark, who set the Bombers class track record a few months back, punctuated his night in Victory Lane with a little trash talk. “That No. 03 (Nelson) is tough, but he ain’t got (anything) for us,” Denmark said. “Our car was fast and there was some tough competition out there tonight.”

Leytham put his unblemished streak in jeopardy at the drop of the green flag by opting to begin at the back of the pack. The decision, though, didn’t slow him down. He quickly chewed up three spots before the field reached Turn 1 on the opening lap. Leytham started threading the needle through the field, chewing up spots along the way and had climbed to second by Lap 7. Nelson managed to keep Leytham at bay for a few laps before he surrendered the spot to Leytham on before the feature reached its halfway point.

Southern Vintage Racing Association

Ben Spears hopes the Southern Vintage Racing Association schedules more stops at Five Flags Speedway. The first time the Association battled at Pensacola’s high banks back in June, Spears swiped the checkered flag. On this Friday, the second verse was same as the first as Spears captured another 20-lap feature. “It never comes easy,” Spears said. “It was work, but it was worth it.”

The father-son tandem of Scooter and Thumper Grice finished second and third, respectively. “I guess I’ll always be the bridesmaid,” said Scooter Grice, who is still in search of that elusive win at the famed half-mile asphalt oval. “That guy (Spears) is a fantastic driver. He’s made so many strides that are unbelievable. Kudos to Ben.”

Throughout the week, Thumper Grice had visions of a family sweep. But that never materialized when his father and Spears broke away from the large field. Thumper Grice, meanwhile, had one of the best battles on the track. He, James Ward and Matt Culbertson swapped the spot several times before Thumper eventually took it over for good on Lap 14. “I wanted to be in front of him,” Thumper, 21, said of his father. “I wanted us to be 1-2.”

Re :   THE GRANDSTAND(General Discussions)

Grand Opening Cancelled

We are letting everyone know that we will not be opening on August 30th as planned. We are truly sorry for this inconvenience for everyone and we do apologize to all the people that were planning on racing or attending the races that night. We still have a couple of issues that need to be resolved before we can start racing on a regular basis and I will assure you that those issues are being resolved. We continue to work diligently at the things that we can fix on our own ...and work with others on the ones that we can not do ourselves. We are not going to put out another date at this time but it will be announced shortly. Over the next couple of weeks everyone will begin to see all the changes that we have promised and we will have racing back up and running. The fence and bleachers are both being put up by local contractors so once that process begins it will move along rather quickly and both of these projects can be done at the same time. Again, our apologies for the delay. We hope to have more news for everyone shortly.

The latest on Sand Mountain Speedway

Opening Day Postponed

This is Dennis Snow & Scott Borchers , the owners of Sand Mountain Speedway, Due to unforeseen circumstances  with engineering  for the track, we have to postpone the opening of the track from 2015 to 2016. We are very sorry for any issues this may cause. We will make it up to everyone and we hope to see everyone in 2016 for some incredible racing.

Thank You,
Management

The old Sand Mountain Speedway was a 1/3 mile banked clay oval track located in Fort Meade, Polk County Florida. The race track was originally closed in 2006 due to permitting problems.

Sand Mountain Speedway is coming back as a 1/3 mile asphalt banked oval stock car race track which will be hosted at the old Sand Mountain Dirt Track in Fort Meade Florida. This project is in it’s infant development / planning stages. The project is led by Dennis Snow and his family (pictured below).

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 :   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.
