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 :   Orlando Speedworld

SIX CLASSES RUNNING FRIDAY NIGHT AT ORLANDO SPEEDWORLD

by Dave Westerman

After a rainout last Friday night, Orlando SpeedWorld returns to action this

divisions of racing.

The Modifieds return this week and will be joined by the Pro Trucks, Legend

Alan Bruns and Bruce Bennett have split the two Modified class wins so far
this year and both are expected in the field along with a group of challengers
that include Chad Pierce, Matt Jarrett, Earl "Junior" Beckner, Matt Wheeler,
Zach Harris and more. 

The Pro Trucks have seen three winners in three races
so far this season as lady drivers Whitney Poole and Becca Monopoli have both
visited victory lane along with Michael Burns who won on opening night. 

Keith Sinkula is coming off back-to-back wins in the Legend Cars while William
"Huggy Bear" Hindman has been the guy to be in the Strictly Stocks, already
taking down four feature race victories including last Saturday night's
special event where he also won the added Figure-Eight race.

Pit gates will open Friday afternoon at 4 pm with open practice slated from
5-7 pm. Grandstand gates open at 6 pm with racing at 8 pm.  Adult admission is
just $12 with seniors (65+) and military with valid ID being admitted for only

Re :   New Smyrna Speedway

FAN APPRECIATION NIGHT FEATURES TWIN 50-LAP FEATURES
AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY

by Dave Westerman

New Smyrna Speedway will host the first "Fan Appreciation Night" of the 2014
season and will give the fans plenty to see as the Modifieds and Super Stocks
will run a pair of 50-lap feature events.  All adults will be admitted to the
grandstand side this week for just $10.

The full-bore "Open" Modifieds will make their first appearance of the regular
season having last raced during the World Series in February.  Defending track
champion Jerry "The Hammer" Symons will lead the field once again this week
but he can expect plenty of competition.  The Super Stocks have raced three
times already this year and those events have produced a trio of victors
including Butch Herdegen, defending track champ Shannon Kelly and Garrett Hill
just last week.

The Mini Stocks and Strictly Stocks will also race this week.  Just like the
Super Stocks, the Mini Stock Division has produced three different winners in
the three races run so far this year.  Defending track title holder David
Russell won on opening night while Pat Wells has also picked up a win along
with "Mr. Mini Stock," Ted Vulpius, who dominated the class last week.  During
intermission this week, Spectator Races are scheduled along with a special
kids/parents tire race.

Pit gates open Saturday afternoon at 3 pm followed by division practice from
4-5:40 pm.  Grandstand gates open at 6 pm with qualifying at 6:30 pm for the
Modifieds and Super Stocks.  Racing begins promptly at 7:30 pm.  Again, adult
admission this week is just $10 and all kids aged 11 and under are admitted
free of charge.

Re :   Five Flags Speedway

Blizzard Series to kick off this Friday

The 2014 Racing Season is off to an incredible start, and the excitement level continues to rise with the opening of the Buddy's Home Furnishing Blizzard Series, scheduled for this Friday Night. The Mt. Dew Kick Start 125 will introduce a new format for the Blizzard Series events, for the 2nd straight year a part of the Southern Super Series, presented by Sunoco. While the 125 Lap races will feature a mandatory caution period at or around the lap 75, gone is the rule where all teams must complete tire changes at this time. New this year, teams will be allowed to change tires at any point during the race, allowing for a wide variation in race strategy, giving more teams chances to compete for the win.


As race #3 in the Southern Super Series, 5 Flags Speedway follows the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and South Alabama Speedway, both tracks which produced first time Winners. Casey Roderick was victorious at the Rattler 250 at SAS, while longtime favorite Donnie Wilson picked up an overdue win in the Music City. These two drivers will compete against what is shaping up to be the most competitive field of Super Late Model stars ever for a Blizzard Series event.


 Defending Blizzard and SSS Champion Daniel Hemric will be high on the list of guys to beat this Friday, along with recent Pro Late Model Winner, Bubba Pollard, SSS points leader Anderson Bowen, former Champs Augie Grill and Johanna Long, last year's Mobile Speedway Champion John Hunter Nemechek, former Pro All Star Series Champion Kyle Grissom, and the list goes on.

Also out for their Season Opener this Friday night will be the Pro Truck Division. This popular class has seen substantial growth during the off season, and a large field of trucks are expected, including Atlanta driver Riley Thornton, the defending Snowball Derby Winner. Shanna Ard won the last Beef O' Brady's Sportsman Feature on April 11th, and he will be gunning for 2 in a row Friday Night.


Current points leader Brannon Fowler will be out to prevent that, as will a host of other Sportsman hot shots. Niceville driver Ryan Worsham laid down notice of his Championship intentions in the Butler U Pull-It Bomber feature 2 weeks ago, passing Mississippi driver and current points leader Jerry Goff Jr. along the way. The Bomber Division had a huge field of cars last time, with even more expected this week.

 

We do hope you can join us this Friday Night as "Americas Favorite Home Track" showcases some of the best short track racing action found anywhere. Affordable Family entertainment is what we strive for here at 5 Flags Speedway, come check us out this week and get a "Kick Start' to your weekend!!

Re :   Southern Pro-Am Truck Series (SPATS)

$3,000 Memorial Pro Truck Race Winner: Mica Williams



 ShowTime Speedway (Pinellas Park, FL) April 19, 2014 – Florida Pro Truck driver Mica Williams, captured his first Pro Truck win in the first Southern Pro Am Truck Series’ Larry Moyer Me...morial 81 Lap Pro Truck Race at ShowTime Speedway. ShowTime Speedway’s packed house of racing fans and the friends and family of the late Larry Moyer endured the drizzle to watch an exciting Saturday night of Pro Truck racing. Many of Moyer’s friends were in the pits working on the Pro Trucks while some strapped on their helmets to race. Dave Pletcher and Bob Spaeth were two friends that raced in the Memorial Race. Pletcher drove the number 74 Moyer Motorsports Pro Truck, and Spaeth, who drove the number 2 Pro Truck and finished eighth, wore one of Moyer’s old racing suits.

With a light rain drizzle, fourteen Pro Truck drivers started the main feature race to not only battle each other, but also to battle wet track conditions. Mica Williams’ driving skills were showcased as he worked past local fan favorite Jay Zolciak and held off fierce competitors in Becca Monopoli and Jessica Murphy. Williams brought home $3,000, was fitted for a Championship Lug Nut Ring and he earned additional bonus money for leading at the halfway mark. An anonymous and close friend of the late Larry Moyer donated the bonus money for the halfway leader.

As race fans witnessed the exciting knockout format of qualifying, Becca Monopoli’s impressive lap times earned her the All Racing Classified’s fastest qualifying time bonus money. Due to the Series’ inversion drawing, Monopoli drew the fifth position which placed Jay Zolciak on the pole. Zolciak led the first several laps of the race and finished the night in third place. Monopoli, who finished in second place, kept the pressure on Williams the entire race, but Williams’ consistent performance was enough to earn him the win.

It was reported after the race that Mica Williams and Becca Monopoli attended the same high school together, and they are no strangers to competition. Mica earned a football scholarship to the University of New Mexico where he played defensive safety. Becca’s athletic career didn't start with racing, at age five she played soccer for five years and softball for eleven years.

Some of the fan favorites, like Dave Pletcher, Todd Bontrager, Mason Love and JR Garcia were not able to finish the race due to mechanical failure or being involved in a wreck. JR Garcia had his number 13 Pro Truck moving through the pack until a wreck in turn two made him slam on his brakes to avoid colliding with the number 26 truck of Jessica Murphy. Murphy, who finished fourth, made a quick pit stop to have her damaged hood and front fenders removed so that she could finish the race. Thirteen year old and local fan favorite, Cole Partelo raced all 81 laps and finished seventh. “It’s impressive to see the maturity level and racing skills of this young man. Having more young teens involved in Pro Truck racing will play a major role in the future success of this Series,” said Jim Reppi, Series Representative.

Spencer Taylor, a 22 year old from Orlando, drove the number 1 Pro Truck sponsored by Driver Seat Racing. With transmission issues early into the race, Spencer was able to race all 81 laps and finish ninth. Driver Seat Racing provides race fans with a real racing experience by allowing individuals the opportunity to pay a fee to race in a real Pro Truck race.

The next Southern Pro Am Truck Series race is scheduled for May 10th, 2014 at Bronson Speedway in Archer, FL. For race event details or to reserve a Pro Truck, drivers and fans can visit southernprotrucks.com.

RESULTS FOR 4-19

TOVET IS THE IRON MAN …
MARTIN JR., WRIGHT, MILLER CLAIM FEATURE WINS

Danny Martin Jr. in victory lane

It was another great night of racing at “The World’s Fastest Half Mile” with five divisions on hand including the Eagle Jet Top Gun Sprints and the first round of the “Iron Man” series in the Benny’s Racing Tires V8 Thunderstocks.

The evenings feature events started off with the Auto Add Ons Hobby Stock Division. The front row saw Alan Lane and Scott Stewart leading the field to green. The story of the night, however, was Donnie Ashford who was looking to remain perfect on the season trying to win his fourth race in a row. When the green flag dropped it was Stewart jumping out to the early lead, but Chad Scanton and Ashford began a torrid march to the front of the field. By lap three Scranton had moved into the second spot and claimed the lead on the ensuing lap with Ashford in tow. Todd Morgan, who also won his heat race, began to show his muscle by lap seven and moved into a three way battle for the lead.

As the top three battled for the top point, Rodney Wright began to make his way up through the field from his 12th place starting spot. Wright, the 2013 VSP Track Champion, had spun in his heat race while battling Ashford forcing him to start deep in the field. Wright didn’t let his starting spot slow him down moving him into the fourth spot by lap 12. He would then make quick work of Morgan on the ensuing lap while chasing the leaders down.

Now it came down to Ashford, Scranton, and Wright for the win. The three battled side by side and it was Wright taking both of them on the high side in the closing laps, holding on for his first victory of 2014. Scranton came home second with Ashford on his heels for third. “We changed a couple things on the car this week and changed some more from the heat race,” said Wright, “Track was good on the top, but we ended up on the bottom and worked our way to the front.” Heat race wins went to Morgan and Ashford.
*
The Benny’s Racing Tires V8 Thunderstocks were next on the feature list with the first round of the Iron Man Series. Chad Scranton and David Showers Jr. lead the field to green and it was Scranton who got out to an early lead. Mike Tovet moved into the second position on lap two making quick work of Showers and setting his sights on Scranton. The two would battle back and forth for several laps with Scranton running the high line and Tovet running on the bottom. On lap ten Tovet finally found a way around Scranton when he got a little too high down the back stretch and lost traction allowing Tovet to get around. Scranton would fall back into the second position with Hayden McCormick in third.

The action further back in the field saw Keith Briggs making his way into the top five after starting 20th on the grid. Also making moves right behind him was Jeff Smith who found himself just behind Briggs in the sixth spot. With five laps to go Tovet would pull away from the field as Scranton would start to get pressure from Briggs and Smith. Smith ended up getting around Briggs for the third position, but when the dust settled it was Tovet taking home the win for the second week in a row. Chad Scranton was second followed by Jeff Smith. “Chad had me and the slipped up on the back and I was able to get around him”, said Tovet, “We were able to stay up front and bring home another win”. Justin Durbin, Tovet, Showers Jr., and Scranton all won heat races.
*

Next up were the highly anticipated Eagle Jet Top Gun Sprints making their first start of the season at VSP. The Top Gun Sprints were slated to run on March 29th, but the skies opened up and the rains came forcing the cancelation of the event. Tonight was not the case as it was Tony Agin and Danny Martin Jr. on the front row leading the field to the green flag. On the initial start it was Agin getting a good jump and taking the lead. Martin would slide into second with Gene Lasker in third. Agin would lead the first few circuits, but it was Martin on the high side with a power move on lap 4 to take the lead away from Agin coming out of turn two. As Martin began pulling away from the field Lasker started to battle Agin for the second spot. Lasker was able to get around Agin for a brief moment, but a mechanical failure would end his night and bring out a caution before he could attempt to run down leader Martin.

Once the field was re-set and the green flew, it was Martin jumping out to a commanding lead on the top shelf. AJ Maddox would slide into the third spot with Matt Kurtz in fourth. As the lap continued to click away and Martin pulled away from the field, Mark Ruel Jr. started to make his way to the front of the field after starting in row seven. Maddox could not hold off the persistent Kurtz and Ruel with both of them slipping by at the half way point. With about 10 laps to go, there was a scary moment for Kyle Pitts in the #7 machine. Kyle tried to miss the spinning Tanner Witherspoon and ended up hitting the wall coming off of turn two causing the car to go end over end three times. The VSP track safety crew reacted quickly to the incident and arrived on scene in a matter of seconds. Pitts would be ok, but his car was un-repairable forcing him to retire for the evening.

After the red flag, the green once again fell with Martin taking another commanding lead and setting sail taking the checkered flag. “The track was very good tonight on the top,” said Martin, “There was some bumps on the bottom in turn one, but with all of the rain the past week this track was in phenomenal shape and we were able to get the win tonight.” Martin, Maddox, and Lasker all won heat races respectively.
*
Fourth up on the evening saw the Todd’s Tomatoes and Produce Mini Sprints taking center stage. The Mini Sprints were also making their first start of 2014 due to the rains that fell on March 29th. Front row starters Robby Hoffman and Dirk Miller would lead the field to green and it was Miller jumping out to an early lead over Hoffman. John Craddock would settle into third and Connor Borah fourth. Hoffman would not let Miller out of his sight as the two stayed just car lengths apart for most of the race. Once the race reached the five to go mark, mother-nature decided to play a hand in the night
activities causing the race to be red flagged. VSP track crews began working on the track right away trying to keep the surface drivable during the rain.

After nearly 20 minutes the drivers were called back to their cars as the rain came to a stop. Track officials gave the drivers a few laps to make sure the track was ok, but since rains were on the way, the session was short and the green flag was quickly back out. Miller would jump back out to the lead this time pulling away from Hoffman on the new tacky surface. Hoffman would have nothing for Miller who took home the checkered flag leading flag to flag. Hoffman would come home second followed by Craddock. “The car was awesome tonight,” said Miller, “We had the right set-up under the car and when the rain came we were worried, but the track got even faster.” Martin, Lasker, and Maddox all won their heat races.
*
The final division of the night saw the Kerr’s Automotive Gladiators taking the green. Ashley Taylor and Heather Beebe would start on the front row, but mother-nature would have the final say on how the field came to green. The rains picked up right before the cars came out of turn four causing extreme slick conditions and a massive five car pile-up on the front stretch with Beebe taking the brunt of accident suffering heavy front end damage. The race would be red flagged and shortly after was called due to the poor weather conditions. Track officials said the feature will be run next week as a double header to kick things off
*
Next week, April 26, will see the UDLMCS Late Model series invading the “World’s Fastest Half Mile” with the Spring Shootout. The event will be 50 laps and $3000 will go to the winner. Supporting the event will be the Modifieds, V8 Thunderstocks, Hobby Stocks, and the double feature for the Gladiator division.

We hope to see you all next week at the track!

Chastain takes second straight win at Desoto Speedway

by Scott Lockwood

When it comes to Pro Truck racing at Desoto Speedway, Chad Chastain seems to have figured out the quick way around the three-eighths mile oval early this season. In a near replay of last month’s Pro Truck feature, Chastain grabbed the lead at around the halfway point of the 50-lap feature and drove on to his second straight win at the Bradenton raceway.

Outside polesitter Gerald Campbell grabbed the lead at the start and led a four-truck freight train around the track for the first 20 laps. Chastain moved past Darvalics for second on lap 16 and began stalking Campbell for the lead. As the field completed the 22nd lap, Campbell and Chastain ran up on the back of a lapped car. Darvalics, running third at the time, made slight contact with Chastain coming off turn 2, causing Chastain to spin wildly down the back stretch. Race officials sent Darvalics to the rear of the field while Chastain was allowed to keep his spot in second.

On the restart, Campbell, Chastain and Bradenton’s Danny Anderson battled for the lead. One lap later, Campbell lost control of his truck coming out of turn two. The spin also collected Anderson, whose truck was not badly damaged and was allowed to resume the race in second place. Chastain began pulling away from Anderson and Bradenton’s Dennis Coletti after the restart. As the top three trucks motored on, Darvalics began quickly working his way back through the field and was up to fourth with 15 laps to go.

In the final stages of the race, Chastain steadily pulled away while Anderson, Coletti and Darvalics battled for second spot. With about 10 laps to go, Anderson’s truck began smoking and that allowed Coletti and Darvalics to get by. With three laps left, Chastain caught a slew of lapped traffic that allowed Coletti to close the gap, but Chastain went on to win. Darvalics was awarded second place after Coletti’s truck failed post race inspection. Anderson, Tyler Lau and Nick Hernandez rounded out the top five.

In other action Saturday night, Ronnie Robinson came from the rear of the field to win the Mini Stock feature; Mike Endee won the 25-lap Outlaw Modified feature; Darren Bass won his third consecutive Dwarf Car feature. Duane Best was awarded the win in Pure Stock feature after initial winner Logan Leonard was disqualified in post-race technical inspection. Chris Larson won the Mini Stock figure 8; Keith Sankula won the 25-lap Legends feature, and Jeff Firestine won the Modified Mini feature.

Desoto Speedway will host racing next weekend and will return to normal racing action on May 3.

Nosbisch Jr Winner 4-19-14

April 19, 2014, – Tampa, FL – It was a night kids would come out to meet the Easter Bunny and get up close with their favorite drivers as they handed out candy during intermission. Ambassador Limo, Audio Expert Car Audio and Explicit Graphics donated bicycles to be given away to 2 girls and 2 boys. Late Models, Gagel’s Open Wheel Modifieds, Outlaw Fours, Florida Old Time Modifieds and Double Features for the Motorstats.com 4 Cylinder Bombers would be on hand to battle for the wins at The Clay By The Bay.

First feature would be the make-up feature for the Motorstats.com 4 Cylinder Bombers. Richard Humfeld and Patrick Fiore, Sr. made up the front row for the feature. When the green waved Humfeld quickly grabbed the lead with Fiore, Sr. close behind him. On lap two it was Humfeld by a half car length over Fiore, Sr. with Fiore, Sr. taking over the lead on lap three and going onto to win as there were no cautions for the feature. Rounding out the top five were Richard Humfeld, Aaron Yahnke, Don R. Quinn and Gary Lucas.

Next up were the Gagel’s Open Wheel Modifieds. Winning their heats were Dale Kelley and Jerry Bruce. For the feature it was Paul Snyder and Jerry Bruce. When the green waved Snyder quickly took the lead with Bruce and Bill Howard trailing. By lap seven Snyder had a full straight away lead over now second place Reutimann. It was on lap eleven when Nate Bregenzer slowed in turn two ending his night. The green waved and for the final four laps Snyder led the rest of the way and went onto win with Buzzie Reutimann, Jerry Bruce, Bill Howard and Roger Crouse rounding out the top five.

Outlaw Fours were next with Robert Morfin, Jr. and Jack Hampton winning their heat early on. Making up the front row for the feature would be Brandon Yates and Chris Zimmerman. Yates would lead the way into turn one leading the first seven laps until Raymond Rogers, Jr. spun on the front stretch bringing out the first of two cautions for the feature. Second caution came out on the restart as third place Nick Hebrank spun in turn two. The field was lined back up the for the final restart as Brandon Yates went on to win the feature with Chris Zimmerman, Zach Amundsen, Brittany Yates and Roberto Morfin, Jr. rounded out the top five.
Florida Old Time Mods were next as David Kelly won the heat race and it was Richard Svenson and Bob Fink making up the front row for the feature event. Fink led the first three laps until lap four as he and Jamie Franklin were side by side at the start finish line. Franklin took over on lap six and Bob Fink battled back to regain the lead on lap eight. But Franklin charged back and took over the lead and went on to win the caution free race for the Florida Old Time Modifieds. Rounding out the top five was Dan Darnell, Bob Fink, David Kelly and Gary Riccio.

Next up was the 25 lap feature for the Late Models. Jack Nosbisch, Jr. and Shan Smith won their heat races early on. For the feature it was Smith and Nosbisch, Jr. making up the front row. Nosbisch, Jr. quickly grabbed the lead on lap one with Bryan Bernhardt getting by Smith for second with Smith now third. Nosbisch, Jr. and Bernhardt were starting to reach lapped traffic by lap seven with Smith still in third. Lap twelve was when the first caution came out as Phillip Cobb and Tim Dowling both slowed ending their nights. On the restart in turn two, Kyle Musselman and John Koller tangled with Koller almost going over. Musselman’s night was done with a fourteenth place finish as Koller was able to continue only to get a tenth place finish. It was the final restart on lap twelve as Nosbisch, Jr. was able to hold off Bernhardt and go on to win his first feature of the 2014 Season. Rounding out the top five were Bernhardt, Shan Smith, Josh Peacock and Jamie Slatton.

That was the only caution of the feature as George Handy was able to hold off Patrick Fiore, Sr. as he was hoping to make it a back to back night feature wins.

Re :   New Smyrna Speedway

RESULTS FOR 4-19

KORPI TOPS E-MOD 50 – LIRA WINS IN PRO LATES
AT NEW SMYRNA SPEEDWAY

It was a nice and breezy Easter Eve at New Smyrna Speedway Saturday night and along with a big Easter Egg hunt for the kids, there was plenty of great Stock Car Racing action for both young and old alike.

The big event of the evening was a 50-lap showdown for the E-Modifieds and it was defending track champion Jarrett Korpi of Deltona making it known early on that his would be the car to beat as he topped the rest of the competitors in qualifying with a lap of 19.367 seconds with Earl “Junior” Beckner his closest challenger at 19.542.

The pill draw was a two that meant Korpi and Beckner would simply swap starting spots on the front row for the feature.  At the drop of the green, Korpi wasted little time taking the top spot while Beckner was forced to come from the back of the starting grid because he was late to line up on pit road.

Korpi continued to set a hot pace but Cody Blair was not far behind in second until his car shut off on lap seven and he coasted to a stop.  Blair made it back to the pits where his crew quickly diagnosed the problem and he returned to the race.

Korpi maintained his advantage following the restart but Beckner was now up to second and beginning to apply some pressure.  Roger Benton spun in turn two on lap 16 to bring out the yellow once again.  On the restart, Beckner powered to the front and began to pull away.  On lap 35, Beckner got loose and spun coming off turn two but managed not to hit anything or be collected by anyone else.  Beckner restarted from the rear of the field leaving Korpi in charge once again.  From that point, Korpi pretty much had it in cruise control as he claimed his third win of the new season over Blair and Matthew Green.

Beckner, battling an extremely loose race car, held on to take fourth just ahead of Robert Glover.  Benton, Jim Higginbotham, Mike Dahm, Jon Compagnone and George Dahm rounded out the finishing field.

Michael Lira made it three winners in three races for the Pro Late Model division as he led every lap to score a popular win.  The first few laps of the event were pretty eventful as only one lap could be completed before Michael Williams spun coming off turn four.  Williams kept from hitting the inside wall and returned to action none the worse for wear.  Ricky Anderson slowed to a stop during the fourth lap and was pushed to the pits where his crew frantically went to work to figure out what the problem was.  The green flag flew with the young driver still sitting still on pit road but luck was with the team as Williams spun a second time to keep the caution out with no extra laps completed.  By the time the field took the one to go signal from started Ralph Miller, Anderson’s car was re-fired and he rejoined the fray only to spin out himself on lap five to bring out the final caution of the race.

Lira had no problem leading the remaining 20 circuits to the checker as the field stayed close, but strung out, behind him.  Tyler Audie had yet another good showing, taking second after scoring his big 50-lap win on opening night a few weeks back.  Third went to Alan Bruns but he was later DQ’d in tech for a weight issue moving Will Carroll up to the show position.  Cody Blair was fourth and Chris Brannon, running in his third different class this year, fifth.  Completing the finishers were Daniel Miller, Zach Jarrell, Anderson, Williams, Raul Orlandini and the ageless John Kennedy.

The Mini Stock 25-lap feature marked the return of “Mr. Mini Stock,” veteran Ted Vulpius of Mims and he led every lap after drawing the pole for the feature.  Vulpius survived three slow-downs, two for minor spins and then a red flag on lap 13 for a violent crash in turn one that saw the cars of Mark Broat and Pat Wells hard into the wall but fortunately without injury to either driver.  Tyler Simpson was also involved but was able to continue.

Vulpius had no problems at all during the event easily crossing the checker in front of David Russell and Jamie Dixson.  Jeff White was fourth ahead of Simpson who rebounded for fifth spot.  Rounding out the field were Levi Hammond, Brad Blanton, Reid Christiensen, Wells, Broat and Jason Reynolds.

The Super Stock 25-lapper was a fairly tame affair that saw just one lengthy caution flag period when Mike Dahm blew an engine on lap seven and oiled the track down in turn one.  Other than that, the race belonged to young Garrett Hill.  Hill, who has moved up to run the Sportsman class this season, dusted off his Super Stock and dominated the race, leading all the way.  Shannon Kelly came from his tenth starting spot to finish second but had nothing for the fleet Hill.  Mike Amato claimed third over Joe Gerard and Charles King who had just moved up to the class from the Strictly Stocks.  Sixth spot went to J. T. Tippins trailed by Jeff Cuddy, Preston Hunt, Becca Samsoe, Michael Bedient and Dahm.

Jimmy Barron out-ran Joshua Stilwell to win the Strictly Stock feature.

This coming Saturday night it’s Fan Appreciation Night featuring 50-lap races for both the full-bore Modifieds and the Super Stocks.  Mini Stocks and Strictly Stocks will also be in action and Spectator Races are also on the schedule along with a kids/parents tire race.  All adult tickets for this Saturday’s action are just $10 with kids aged 11 and under admitted free of charge.

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.

Re :   Bubba Raceway Park

Girl, 15, dies after crash at Bubba Raceway Park

from Ocala.com

A 15-year-old girl died Sunday from injuries she sustained the day before while racing at Bubba Raceway Park off Gainesville Road north of Ocala.

Niokoa Johnson was conducting a time trial in a race-ready Nissan Sentra at around 6:30 p.m. Saturday. This was her first time on the track and she was the only driver on the track when the crash occurred, according to a Marion County Sheriff’s news release.

Witnesses reported she was making a second lap toward the north end of the track when she lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a concrete barrier.

The teenager was unconscious when racetrack workers and others pulled her from the vehicle.

She was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center where her condition was stabilized, and then flown by helicopter to UF Health Shands Hospital in Gainesville.

On Sunday, word of the crash and of Niokoa’s death circulated on social media as numerous friends and family mourned the teen.

The Facebook page for the racetrack at 9050 NW Gainesville Road carried this post: It is with a heavy heart that all of us from Bubba Raceway Park pass on our continued prayers and deepest condolences to the family of Niokoa Johnson... Please keep Niokoa and her entire family in your prayers for strength and guidance during this difficult and sorrowful time.

A fundraiser begun on the website FundRazr.com had a goal of $5,000 to help the family offset funeral expenses.

According to a sheriff’s office, that agency will continue to look into this incident as an accidental death investigation.

Re :   General Rants N Raves

War of words heats up between Citrus County Speedway and Showtime Speedway

Robert Yoho - Showtime Speedway:

We at Showtime Speedway understand everyone's concern about the Sprint Car shows being booked on top on each other. With the commitment from Team Hamilton and some other out of state teams along with some of the top USAC teams this was the only weekend available for them. With that being said, a good month ago a local team reached out to Mr Butler and asked him to change their date and was told it was up to Gary LaPlant. I then called Gary and asked him about the possible date change and he told me that it was up to Mr Butler. At that point it appeared they didnt want to work with us and I had no choice but to move ahead with the show as scheduled. Thank you for your understanding and hope to see everyone this weekend for the best Winged Outlaw Sprint Car racing in the state of Florida. Also Team Hamilton and other's would of attend Citrus the week after, it just didn't work out. There will be Great racing at both Tracks so please go watch at either Track the show's will all be Good!

Gary Laplant - Citrus County Speedway:

I was not going to say a word about htis matter till I read the post above and called Yoho on the matter this A.M and he hung up on me about this matter. Ctirus County Speedway Posted back in OCt 2013 that we would be running wingless sprint cars the first Sat of every month in 2014 Feb to Nov.. The comments that Robert Yoho made are not 100% right. Not even close. He did call me on this matter to cancel my race. My comment to him was how come you put a date on top of Citrus that was set back in Oct of 2013 when Mr Butler and I posted we were going to start the class for our track. Yoho told me to be honest when we decide to do this show and never thought about the wingless sprint or your race. Then Yoho went on explaining he has 26 car coming down and so on. I asked if that was the case why would you be worried about the cars I might have coming to Citrus. Yoho put the date on top of mine without even looking at other sprint races that night, my race was planned months before Yoho scheduled his. If anyone should have canceled the race it should have been Yoho. I was not going to say a word about this matter till I read MR Yoho's comments which are 100% not true!!! I will work with other tracks but if I have a date set months prior ahead why would another just put a date on top of him them ask them to change there date????? Yohoo know better then pull this then act like I was wrong.

Robert Yoho - Showtime Speedway:

FOLKS SHOWTIME IS HERE TO STAY. MR. Laplant, You have a hearing problem, I said we would have 26 cars each night at each track if we were on Different dates. The resaon I needed the Wofs and Sprints together they will be racing each other. Team Halmilton would go up to Citrus to race with you the following week. Also keep in mind alot of Fans only like sprint car racing, now they are split. We both lose, And Tom is Right I WOULD OF TOLD EVERYONE THAT THEY WOULD BE A CITRUS NEXT WEEK RUNNING A NON-WING RACE. I also had m schedule out for this year before anyone, would you like me to show how many dates you put on top of mine. Also just like Mike B. said some racers are only going to run a Home track. Lots of good points made. All we can do is hope the fans in Florida go to any short track this week and watch a show, no matter were.

Gary Laplant - Citrus County Speedway

Let me get this right Citrus Speedway announced they will be running Sprint Cars every Saturday night form Feb to Nov in Oct 13 then posted there full Schedule in Nov 13 This gaurantee the Sprint Cars 10 months of racing like a series would do.

 Now here comes another track Promoter Yoho books a date for March 1st In January 2014 then calls Me at the end of Jan and want me to Cancel my race for week in March and with a few days on FEB 1 Citrus had 26 car race.

 Just a question so some of you really think I shoud should have just say yes to MR Yoho I will please you since you want to top race that i had on my Schedule months before you even before you thought about a Sprint car race in March. You really think I should have just gave in to Him?????
 At this point why do we evey have a racing schedule for then any more??

 Yoho and I did talk he expained to me he already had 20 to 25 coming from Ind to race and it would be a win for both track. I asked him well if you already have 20 to 25 coming why would you even need the any form my track????

 Now really what should have happened is for Yoho to have looked at how many car I had within a few day of our conversation and say maybe I need to rethink my racing date for a week myself and work better with a Man that got 26 sprint cars to a track is sprint car first race as a new promoter instead of trying to cut my throat.


 Just my thought on the mattter Place your self in my shoes what would you have done??? Remember some racers look at all the schedule and plan each week out for the year and I would have replaced at least two week of my Schedule to Please Mr Yoho putting a race on top on my race date.


 Let go racing and have fun this great weekend coming up know matter where you go and be safe.

 Got to love Florida Short Track Racing

The chassis specs will be provided by Andy Johnson ofJohnson Chassis, Inc. located in Kannapolis, NC. In the coming weeks the specswill be added to the Southern Pro Am Truck Series rules for local builders toaccess. The clips and replacement frames are already available. “The objectiveis to build a replacement for the GM Metric frame, not an improvement,” saidAndy Johnson. Full bare frames retail for $1695 and clips are $695.

The XYG inspection grid will be in use to ensure that thetubular replacement pickup points are “Stock”. The grid is a go/no go gauge forall the suspension pick up points.

In addition to the chassis alternative, an alternativeaftermarket lower control arm and rear trailing arms will soon be announced.

Coby Takes UNOH Battle at the Beach

Coby Masters Daytona Modified Field

Story By: Jason Christley NASCAR Media  Photos By: Getty Images

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. February 18,2014... Defending NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour champion Ryan Preece dominated the UNOH Battle At The Beach at Daytona Int’l Speedway, but it was Doug Coby who celebrated in victory lane.

Preece, who led the first 147 laps from the pole, hit the spinning lapped car of David Sapienza with eight laps remaining, giving Coby the break he needed. The contact badly bent the left-rear wheel on Preece’s No. 16 and when the race resumed with three laps to go he couldn’t hold the bottom groove, allowing Coby to sneak from third to the lead.

Coby led the final three circuits on the temporary three-eighths-mile track located on the backstretch at the superspeedway and earned $20,000 in his first race in the No. 2 modified.

“Daytona is big for racing. It doesn’t matter what you race here to be a winner at this race track and bring it home for a brand new team in its first time out with the car,” Coby said. “I tried to be as patient as I could and tried to get spots on the restarts to put myself in a position to be there at the end. We got lucky when that caution came out. Ryan had a great car and was driving away, but this is the Battle At The Beach and there are no points.”

Jason Myers applied the chrome horn to Coby exiting the fourth turn on the final lap, but Coby held on. Myers finished second with Luke Fleming, Preece and Burt Myers rounding out the top five.

“I don’t even know what to say about it,” Preece said. “It is unfortunate. This is horrible. To win at Daytona would have meant a lot to me.”

The finish:

Doug Coby, Jason Myers, Luke Fleming, Ryan Preece, Burt Myers, Tommy Barrett Jr., Cody Ware, Ron Silk, Eric Goodale, J.R. Bertuccio, Donny Lia, Patrick Emerling, Rob Fuller, David Sapienza, Justin Bonsignore, Cole Powell, Kyle Benjamin, Dalton Baldwin, A.J. Winstead, Jeremy Gerstner, Jimmy Zacharias, Jonathan Kievman, David Brigati.

Re :   Showtime Speedway

A lot of folks are asking questions about today's announcement about the "Gateway Express" project. This has been part of the plan for a long time. Fortunately, the State is sticking to the original plans that DO NOT INCLUDE using the Speedway.

 The State has committed to working with us and we have a lot of support from our local elected officials. We are confident that the new road and the speedway can co-exist.

Re :   THE GRANDSTAND(General Discussions)

Below is a post from an obviously misinformed member of Karnac. We at Florida Racing are not "antagonistic" whatsoever to Karnac. In fact we have a link to Karnac in our favorite links area on our front page. You will not see a link on Karnac to Florida Racing and anytime someone posts a link to our site it is deleted. Now who is antagonistic as this Karnac member says? Because some of our guests post negative statements about Karnac in no way reflects the Florida Racing management's opinion of Karnac. In fact according to the many e-mails we've received most of the negative posts about Karnac are from former and current members of Karnac who are upset that they have been banned or their posts were deleted. Just wanted to set the record straight. Like I said we have a link to Karnac on our front page.

It is on another web site that for some reason is antagonistic towards KARNAC so I will not publicize their name. When an organizations mission is to inform the public I see no need for pissing matches since in the end it simply means every one got wet
