OCALA, Fla. (February 27, 2015) The Lucas Oil American Sprint Series presented by MAVTV American Real paid its first visit Florida's Bubba Raceway Park with Aaron Reutzel picking up his second Protect the Harvest A-Feature win of the 2015 season.

Reutzel's sixth Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour Victory since 2014 the Clute, Texas driver took off from the pole to lead flag-to-flag for his third podium in four starts.

"I tell you what; this team has got some momentum right now. It just seems like we can't do anything wrong," said Reutzel. "I knew all we had to do was win the start, and once I did I just stayed around the tires. My highs are like 7,500RPM, I don't think I went any further than half-throttle at anytime. I got too lapped there and I knew if I just followed them, I'd be alright. I was actually trying to let them get away from me but I just kept getting slower and slower like I was pulling them back to me."

Nearly collected in slower traffic on the final lap, the caution displayed before Johnny Herrera could mount a charge on the B.C. Funds No 87.

Asked about the caution, Reutzel replied, "I really didn't want to see that caution. That's like the third race I've been leading on a rubber down track and had a caution on the white flag lap and just something happened, so I was just like well, here we go again, but I knew if I could just get the jump and roll into one and two, I'd be okay."

Johnny Herrera's second straight podium of the season, the MVT No. 45x made quick moves on the start to go from second to fourth by Lap 4.

"We kind of figured this thing was going to take rubber, and whoever was good off the front row, then that's where it was going to be won from. Reutzel up there and wasn't going to make any mistakes so I knew we were just going to be setting pace with him."

Clicking his fourth podium finish in as many starts, Pennsylvania's Mark Smith brought the Mach 1 Chassis No. M1 third after starting seventh.

"We were able to move forward, which is tough to do on a track like that. I didn't have the tire I wanted on the Left Rear, but we had to get as far as we could get and third was it," commented Smith. Asked about being locked into the redraw, Mark replied, "That's cool, I like that."

The final transfer into Saturday's A-Feature went to Ohio's Greg Wilson. From eighth, Brad Loyet finished one spot shy in fifth.

Derek Hagar crossed sixth with Danny Martin, Jr. seventh. Danny Holtgraver from 11th claimed eighth with Chad Kemenah advancing eight spots to ninth as the evening's Hard Charger. Parker Price-Miller completed the top-ten.

A total of 43 drivers drew in with five Heat Races going to Danny Martin, Jr., A.J. Maddox, Johnny Herrera, Greg Wilson, and Brad Loyet. B-Features were won by Chad Kemenah and Travis Rilat. The A-Feature saw 24 starters as Jeff Swindell and Matt Covington each used a provisional.

Events at the Bubba Raceway Park continue on Saturday, February 28 with races scheduled to begin at 7:30 P.M. (ET). Live PPV of the Lucas Oil ASCS spectacular can be found at http://www.racinboys.com.

RESULTS FOR 2-22

DARLAND STRETCHES NATIONAL WIN STREAK
TO 23 YEARS WITH SUNDAY OCALA WIN

Ocala, Florida…….Dave Darland added to the most impressive streak in USAC history on Sunday night at Bubba Raceway Park, as he added another AMSOIL National Sprint Car win to his list and made it 23 consecutive seasons with at least one win in a USAC National series. The Lincoln, Indiana veteran’s all-time record 54th National Sprint Car win came in flag-to-flag fashion aboard the Phillips Motorsports – Trench Shoring #71P DRC/Foxco.

“My crew had to work their asses off just to get the car ready for the feature after some issues in the heat race and then gave me a great car even without having much chance to keep up with the track. We have just had some bad luck out of the gate, but tonight was a great way to rebound. It’s good to be down here while it’s snowing at home, and I can drink a beer to celebrate while it’s warm outside. And it’s good to get my first win in the state of Florida!” Darland said.

Darland led at the start over polesitter Chris Windom, while Robert Ballou was the early man on the move, jumping into the top-five in just a few laps after starting tenth. A red flag on lap six brought things to a screeching halt as Brady Short flipped hard into turn three and collected Landon Simon. Neither driver was hurt.

After a tangle on the ensuing restart, Ballou found himself bringing out the next caution as he slid to a stop in turn-three, giving up the fifth spot but restarting at the tail. Under that caution, defending champion and current point leader Brady Bacon pulled to the infield. He started the night as the ProSource “Fast Time” winner, but registered a DNF in the feature.

From there, the race went green and, despite losing brakes on lap-five, Darland was able to pull away from the field. He encountered very little lapped traffic, but handled it with ease en route to a 2.482-second victory over Windom, who found the podium for the second night in a row aboard the Lein Acres – Mid-State Equipment #2 DRC/Speedway Mopar.

“You always want to win, but I can’t be much happier with the weekend we put together. To get two podium finishes with a brand new deal and guys new to sprint car racing – I’m just fortunate Hans (Lein) gave me a ride down here. I had to get in below the hole in one, but I dropped down a little in three and four which seemed to help. Dave was just too far out at that point,” Windom said.

Jon Stanbrough also planted his brand new operation on the podium to end the weekend, as well, as he ran third in the MP Environmental Services – AED Motorsports Products #81 Spike/J&D.

“To come out of here with two top-fives with a brand new team is pretty good, and we have things going in the right direction. It’s nice to have all the people supporting us, and commenting about how much they like the car, even. We have a good group of people working on this and supporting us. Daryl (Tate) is really easy to work with for me, and hopefully we can keep improving and knock some wins down. It’s been a lot of work in a very short amount of time to get this together, and it’s been stressful to get it all together and there’s still much more to do when we get home, but I’m very grateful for all the support,” Stanbrough said.

Kevin Thomas, Jr. found himself back in the top-five on Saturday night aboard the Bakken Concrete – Griffin’s Propane #17RW Maxim/Fisher, and new point leader Chase Stockon rounded out the top-five in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

C.J. Leary earned the ProSource “Hard Charger Award” after driving from 17th to finish seventh.

NIGHT 2 "WINTER DIRT GAMES" WIN BELONGS TO BACON

Brady Bacon wins USAC Sprints night 2 at Bubba Raceway Park FL Paul Gretzinger photo

Ocala, Florida…….Defending AMSOIL Sprint Car National Champion Brady Bacon wasted very little time getting himself into the win column with the 2015 tour, as he led all thirty laps and held on after a final-lap challenge from Chase Stockon to take Saturday’s “Winter Dirt Games VI” 30-lapper. The Broken Arrow, Oklahoma driver’s ninth-career victory put him back into the point lead.

Bacon got the jump on fellow front-row starter Chris Windom, as Stockon ran the high side into the third-spot in the early laps. A few laps later, Stockon turned underneath Windom off turn-four to take the second spot. The race went nearly to the halfway point before a yellow, negating a chance for Stockon to use traffic to pass Bacon, who was slowed up behind the tail of the field.

Just as the leaders again approach the back of the field, Kyle Robbins stopped after contact with Shane Cockrum, who had slowed suddenly down the backstretch. With a three-lap dash to the checkered, Stockon tried a new approach to go after Bacon. On the final lap, he entered turn-one higher and came out of turn-two with enough momentum to pull alongside Bacon down the backstretch. The two nearly touched as they moved through the final corners, with Bacon throttling to the checkered with his front wheels in the air for the $5,000 victory.

It was the 87th win all-time for the Hoffman Auto Racing – Mean Green #69 Triple X/Williams Mopar.

“He got a good run on us there and drove it in about as far as he could without making contact, which is exactly what I would have done in the same situation. We’ve seen both extremes of track conditions now and been good on both, so that’s a great feeling going forward. It’s a relief to get that first win of the season, as they can be elusive sometimes. We had a hiccup with an engine issue on practice night, but these guys are champions for a reason and have had us ready to go the last two nights,” Bacon said.

Stockon, who started the night by taking the ProSource “Fast Time Award,” made it two podium finishes in a row as he stalked Bacon to the checkered in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

“I could just about throw up after coming that close. The drive to win races makes this one hard to swallow, but we feel good about coming out and being this good on such different tracks. We like to see tracks that are completely different like that, and it’s definitely tested us. I knew I had to change something to have a shot at him at the end, and I thought I could make that work down through one and two. I closed up on him but wanted to keep it clean,” Stockon said.

Chris Windom made it a successful second night aboard the Lein Acres – Mid-State Equipment #2 DRC/Speedway Mopar as he rounded out the podium.

“We’ve made big improvements with this car every time we’ve hit the track. Tonight was tough with dealing with some rough, and dodging the holes a bit. It’s actually gone smoother than I expected to bring out a whole new sprint car deal, and I’m excited to keep working on it and try to gain speed every time we go out. I’m grateful to Hans (Lein) for putting me in his car, and hopefully we can make something of it,” Windom said.

Kevin Thomas, Jr. finished fourth in the Bakken Concrete – Griffin’s Propane #17RW Maxim/Fisher, and Kyle Cummins came from ninth to round out the top-five in the Rick Pollock – Bates Commodities #21x Maxim/Advanced.

Jon Stanbrough picked up the ProSource “Hard Charger Award” after advancing from 20th to finish 14th.

RESULTS FOR 2-20

BALLOU OPENS 2015 WITH "WINTER DIRT GAMES VI" WIN

Robert Ballou wins opening night at Bubba Raceway Park Fri. night. 2nd Chase Stockon and 3rd was Brady Bacon.

Ocala, Florida…….Robert Ballou opened the 2015 AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship much the way he ended last season, as he fended off 2014 series champion Brady Bacon and drove away for the opening night win in “Winter Dirt Games VI.” The Rocklin, California hit double-digits in career wins as he took the Ballou Motorsports – Blakesley Auto #12 Maxim/Ott to a 2.165-second victory.

“I felt like this place owed me one after losing one with a flat tire a couple years back. We kept our deal together, and Derrick Bye kept working hard to keep this momentum rolling. We’re working with the same car that won Oval Nationals to end last year. I knew we were in a tough spot as we hit traffic, and Bacon can get off the bottom so well here. But we battled back and got by him, and that’s a great feeling,” Ballou said.

Ballou began from the pole and led early over Justin Grant & Jon Stanbrough, as Bacon battled from row three after setting the ProSource “Fast Time Award” to open the night. Bacon tracked down Ballou as he encountered slower cars on lap ten, and Bacon snuck past him to the lead on lap 12.

Ballou countered, though, and swept back past Bacon down the backstretch, holding him off as they came to complete lap 14. A lap later, Kyle Cummins stopped to bring the race’s only caution.

Ballou was unmatched after the restart, as Chase Stockon, who had just entered the top-five after falling back early in the race, began to march up on the high side. He caught Bacon and slid past into turn-one to take the second spot. In the final laps, Ballou again caught traffic but Stockon could only bite a small chunk out of his margin.

Stockon came home a strong second in the Superior Tank & Trailer – Crescent Electric Supply #32 DRC/Fisher.

“We have changed a lot of things since this time last year, and it felt good to get rolling on the top and go by some really good guys. Our program doesn’t get much credit when the track goes slick, so it’s satisfying to get rolling so well when the track got black. We have seen a lot of different conditions now on this track, and seem to do pretty well with all of them,” Stockon said.

Defending champion Bacon came home third in the Hoffman Auto Racing – Mean Green #69 Triple X/Williams Mopar.

“This is exactly the type of track we’ve struggled with the most, so tonight was good to get ourselves closer and be in contention for the win. I was better than Robert early in the race and got to him, but he was way better than us at the end. I finally moved up high after Chase got by me, and I was better up there, but it was too late to get anything going. We’re happy with the progress we’ve made,” Bacon said.

Jon Stanbrough opened up his venture of starting his own team with a strong fourth-place finish aboard the MP Environmental Services – AED Motorsports Products #81 Spike/J&D, while Grant rounded out the top-five in the Mark Hery Motorsports – Dick’s Paint & Body #40 DRC/Claxton.

Bryan Clauson overcame obstacles in the heat to transfer from the Semi-Feature in the SST Motorsports #41 back-up car before going from 21st to 9th in the feature, earning the ProSource “Hard Charger Award.”

Richards Wins Ocala's Winter Nationals Finale

Richards Claims Milestone 50th World of Outlaws Late Model Series Victory With First Series Triumph Of 2015 At Bubba Raceway Park

Three-Time WoO LMS Champion Tops Clanton & McCreadie To Claim Final Night Of Fourth Annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director

OCALA, Fla. - Feb. 15, 2015 - Josh Richards' long wait for his 50th career World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory is finally over.

More than 15 months after wrapping up his third WoO LMS championship with his 49th series victory in the tour's 2013 season finale, Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., topped a back-and-forth battle with Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., midway through Sunday's Bubba Army Winter Nationals finale and pulled away from Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., during the race's closing laps to claim a $10,175 triumph at Bubba Raceway Park.

The 26-year-old Richards reached the 50-win milestone with his first WoO LMS victory since sitting out all but two series events in 2014 due to nerve issues in his hands. The momentous accomplishment was extra sweet for a driver who just a few months ago was faced with the potential of never racing again.

"This feels awesome," said Richards, who drove his Valvoline-sponsored Rocket Chassis house car to his third-career WoO LMS victory at Bubba Raceway Park. "There was a time that I thought I was going to end my career on 49 wins when I didn't think I was ever gonna get to race again. To get to 50 really means a lot. I'm happy just to be back racing, but it really feels good to be back and winning races."

Clanton chased Richards through the race's final 10 laps before settling for his second consecutive runner-up finish. McCreadie dropped to third at the checkereds after leading laps 27-34. Steve Casebolt of Richmond, Ind., continued his solid start to the season with a fourth-place finish while Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas, charged from his 13th starting spot to finish fifth in a race slowed by four cautions.

The victory didn't come easy for Richards. He moved from third to second on the race's initial start and quickly began pressuring second-starting Darrell Lanigan for the lead. Richards made an inside run on Lanigan down the back straightaway on lap two and overtook his fellow three-time WoO LMS champion through turns three and four.

But the quick charge came at a price: while passing Lanigan, Richards made contact with one of the tires lining the inside of the racetrack, bending the nose of his blue No. 1 machine in a way that hampered his steering for the remaining 48 laps.

"It was a handful out there," Richards said. "I never knew what it was gonna do getting into the corner, so I had to make sure I kept the car turned on the right-rear the whole race. It was a handful, but it was fun."

McCreadie added to Richards' problems when he began to make his bid for the lead just before the race's halfway point.

Using a line different from Richards' high-side attack, McCreadie first looked under Richards on lap 25 and pulled even with the leader on the next circuit. McCreadie and Richards ran side-by-side down the back straightaway on lap 27 and made slight contact as they dove into turn three still nearly even.

McCreadie pulled ahead exiting the corner, but he never could drive away. Lapped traffic became an issue just a few laps later, and Richards took advantage. As McCreadie attempted to use the top groove to overtake a slower machine on lap 35, Richards remained in the bottom line and raced back out front.

Richards never looked back, crossing the finish line with a lead of 1.030 seconds in earning his third overall victory of the season.

"When you're leading, you don't really know where you need to be," said Richards, whose previous 2015 victories came in non-series races at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga., on Feb. 6 and at Eastbay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Fla., on Feb. 11. "I felt OK up top, but I knew I was pushing a lot off of two.

"I knew someone had to be coming on the bottom, but you don't want to change your line and give up the lead that way. Once he passed me, I slowed down around the bottom and we were a lot better."

Clanton drove his Weldbank Energy-sponsored Capital Race Car by McCreadie for second on lap 41 and set about cutting into Richards' lead. But he began to lose ground after a few laps and settled into the runner-up spot.

The 39-year-old veteran finished second for the second straight night, adding to his lead atop the WoO LMS points standings. With four top-five finishes in four events this season, Clanton heads to Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., for the DIRTcar Nationals with a 16-point lead in the championship chase.

"We were just a little bit tight there and Josh was a little bit better through three and four than I was," Clanton said. "Overall a good night and we've got something to work with at Volusia."

McCreadie's third-place effort turned around a sluggish start to the season for his Sweeteners Plus race team.

"We just got too tight the last 15 laps or so," said McCreadie, who rebounded from a 23rd-place finish in Saturday's WoO LMS A-Main with his first top-five finish of the season. "That happens, but where we were to where we are is a big difference, so we're excited to go to Volusia."

Along with the back-and-forth battles up front, Sunday's race also produced a number of hard charges, highlighted by a run from 21st to sixth by Billy Ogle Jr. of Knoxville, Tenn. Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., notched his fourth top 10 of the season with his charge from 15th to seventh, while Brandon Sheppard of New Berlin, Ill., advanced from 14th to eighth.

Frank Heckenast Jr. of Frankfort, Ill., followed his first career WoO LMS victory during Saturday's A-Main with a ninth-place performance on Sunday night, while fast qualifier Don O'Neal of Martinsville, Ind., rounded out the top 10 after running as high as third early in the event.

The first of the race's four cautions appeared when Eric Wells of Hazard, Ky., spun in turn one on lap five; a mid-pack scuffle on the ensuing restart left Stormy Scott of Las Cruces, N.M., stalled against the back straightaway to cause the second yellow flag; a lap-17 caution appeared when Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., slowed from the sixth spot after making contact with an infield tire; and Lanigan of Union, Ky., suffered the same fate on lap 38 in causing the race's final caution.

Action moves to Volusia Speedway Park on Monday for the first of six straight nights of racing during the DIRTcar Nationals. The first three nights consist of DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned programs, while Thursday through Saturday feature separate $10,000-to-win WoO LMS events.

Second-Year WoO LMS Competitor Outduels Veterans Clanton & Frank In Dramatic 50-Lapper At Bubba Raceway Park

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director

OCALA, Fla. - Feb. 14, 2015 - Frank Heckenast Jr. refused to be denied again.

The second-year national traveler nearly saw another chance at his breakthrough World of Outlaws Late Model Series victory slip through his fingers Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park when Shane Clanton snuck by him late in the 3/8-mile oval's 50-lap race. But instead of settling for another near-miss, Heckenast, 26, of Frankfort, Ill., dug deep and willed himself back to the lead one lap later.

The 2014 WoO LMS Rookie of the Year held off both Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., and hard-charging Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., through the race's final eight laps to earn $10,550 for his first career WoO LMS victory during the second round of the Bubba Army Winter Nationals.

"When Shane passed me, reality started to set in and I told myself I wasn't letting another one get taken from me," said Heckenast, who joined Steve Casebolt of Richmond, Ind., as the second first-time WoO LMS winner this season. "That next lap I just got up on the wheel and settled down and didn't get all flustered. I got beside him and drag-raced him off the corner and got ahead of him. I just did my best to drive a straight race the rest of the way."

Heckenast's Club 29 Race Car crossed the finish line 0.766 seconds ahead of Clanton's Capital Race Cars house car. Richards was third after catching the top two cars late in the race only for his Rocket Chassis house car to slip over the cushion just after edging ahead of Clanton for second on lap 48.

Defending series champion Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., recovered from an early spin in his Club 29 house car to finish fourth, while the Longhorn Chassis of early leader Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., rounded out the top five in a dramatic race that featured five lead changes and side-by-side racing near the front throughout its entirety.

For Heckenast, the hard-fought victory cements his status as a bonafide WoO LMS contender. After a seventh-place points finish on last year's WoO LMS, Saturday's strong performance now has Heckenast aiming much higher during his sophomore season.

"I feel like we belong here now," said Heckenast, whose No. 99JR machine carries sponsorship from St. Louis U-Pic-A-Part and Storage Squares. "Last year the rookie thing was beating me up pretty bad and I didn't have a whole lot of confidence. But in the second half of the year we were getting better and better and really just started putting everything together.

"I knew we could win a race this year, but I didn't want to have to wait until November to see if we could do it. Now that we've got it out of the way, I feel like we can win even more and have a really good chance at a good points finish this year."

The race was intense from the very beginning for Heckenast, who quickly charged forward from his fifth starting spot to challenge the teammates of Frank and Boom Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa., in a tight three-car battle through the race's early laps. Heckenast first edged into the lead at the completion of lap six, but he couldn't quite clear the veteran Frank, who was looking to end his nearly six-year WoO LMS winless streak.

Frank roared back ahead on lap eight and only narrowly held command with Heckenast and Briggs on his heels before a lap-11 caution slowed the lead battle. Heckenast took advantage of the restart, pulling alongside Frank through turns one and two on lap 12 before finally clearing him for the lead on lap 13.

Heckenast maintained a slight advantage through the race's middle portions while Clanton and Richards made their way forward. Richards took the second spot from Frank on lap 27 with Clanton following into third on the next lap. After overtaking Richards for second on lap 36, Clanton began to cut away at Heckenast's nearly straightaway advantage.

With Heckenast struggling in traffic, Clanton began to challenge for the lead by lap 40 and pulled ahead with a low-side pass in turns one and two on lap 41. A slight misstep by Clanton in turns three and four on the same lap allowed Heckenast to pull back alongside. He completed the winning move with a bottom-line pass of his own on lap 42.

Heckenast's bold recovery denied Clanton his second straight WoO LMS victory after he snapped his 66-race winless streak with a dramatic triumph of his own during the tour's Feb. 7 event at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga. The runner-up performance continues Clanton's return to form following a dismal 2014 campaign that saw the WoO LMS veteran go winless on the tour for the first time since the series was restarted in 2004.

"I thought I was going to (win)," said Clanton, who took over the series points lead and is the only driver to finish among the top five in all three of this season's WoO LMS A-Mains. "I just messed up in three and four and Frankie's car was good enough to take advantage of my misfortune. But overall a good night. We started seventh, and to get to second was pretty good.

"We got our ducks in a row right now. Hopefully we can keep them in a row and get a good points lead here. We're optimistic for a good year."

Polesitter Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., was never a factor after jumping the cushion on the race's opening lap. But he recovered to score a sixth-place finish, continuing his solid start to the season that saw the regional standout finish among the top three of both WoO LMS A-Mains at Screven.

Morgan Bagley of Longview, Texas, advanced from his 18th starting spot to finish seventh, while Briggs faded back to eighth after running among the top three through the race's first 20 laps. Chase Junghans of Manhattan, Kan., finished ninth and rookie competitor Jordan Yaggy of Rochester, Minn., notched his first career WoO LMS top-10 finish in the 10th position.

The race was slowed by two cautions with the first appearing for Lanigan's spin on lap four. Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., slowed to cause the final caution with 11 laps complete.

The fourth annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals conclude on Sunday with another $10,000-to-win WoO LMS program. Action gets underway with hot laps at 5 p.m. followed by a complete slate of time trials, heat races, B-mains and another 50-lap A-Main.

RESULTS FOR 2-13

OcalaFridayUMP Lanigan copy

By Joshua Joiner, WoO LMS PR Director

OCALA, Fla. - Feb. 13, 2015 - Turning around his sluggish start to the season, Darrell Lanigan of Union, Ky., topped a late duel with Josh Richards of Shinnston, W.Va., during Friday's DIRTcar UMP-sanctioned A-Main at Bubba Raceway Park to earn a $5,000 victory during the opening night of the fourth annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals.

Lanigan, the three-time and defending World of Outlaws Late Model Series champion, rallied after losing the lead to Richards on lap 20 of the 30-lapper and retook command when Richards struggled with traffic on lap 26. The 44-year-old Lanigan pulled away through the race's final four laps, earning his seventh career victory at the 3/8-mile, egg-shaped oval.

Winning the caution-free race was a much-improved performance for Lanigan, who began his quest for a record fourth WoO LMS title with subpar finishes of eighth and 11th during the national tour's season-opening doubleheader Feb. 6-7 at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Ga. He'll look to keep his Cornett-powered Club 29 Race Car up front on Saturday and Sunday as the Bubba Army Winter Nationals continue with a pair of $10,000-to-win WoO LMS programs.

"We went to Screven and struggled hard and went home and regrouped," Lanigan said of his disappointing performances at Screven's Winter Freeze V. "Instead of sitting down here in a parking lot for three days, we went home and got our notes together and did our homework. We went through everything and just made sure it was all was 100 percent before we came back."

Richards, also a three-time WoO LMS champion, settled for the runner-up finish, crossing the finish line, 1.170 seconds behind Lanigan in the Rocket Chassis house car. Chub Frank of Bear Lake, Pa., drove his Longhorn Chassis from eighth to third, while Morgan Bagley's Black Diamond by Club 29 machine slid back to fourth after leading the race's first 17 laps. Brandon Overton of Evans, Ga., rounded out the top five in his MasterSbilt by Huey car.

The first half of the race belonged to Bagley. After charging from third to first on the opening lap, the Longview, Texas, driver dominated the first half of the race while pulling to nearly a straightaway advantage before traffic slowed his pace. The fifth-starting Lanigan was looking under Bagley by lap 17 and used a high-side charge through turns one and two to jump to the lead on lap 18 while Bagley remained pinned behind a slower machine.

Lanigan had his own struggles with traffic a few laps later, allowing the high-running Richards to sweep by him on lap 20 with another top-side run through turns one and two. Richards appeared headed for his third victory in his first six races of the season before his own problems in traffic allowed Lanigan to retake command with yet another high-side pass in turns one and two on lap 26.

"He got by me when I got in a bad position, but then he got himself in a bad position with a lapped car," Lanigan said of the battle with his WoO LMS rival Richards. "I think we both had pretty good cars. It just depended on who got through lapped traffic the best."

Richards' runner-up finish was a recovery from a dismal start to the race that saw the 26-year-old racer drop from the outside pole to sixth in the race's first three laps. He recovered to enter the lead battle by halfway, but traffic didn't play in his favor.

"We did what we could," said Richards, who owns a pair of WoO LMS victories at Bubba Raceway Park. "We had a really good car, but the way lapped traffic played out we just let one get away from us."

Polesitter Boom Briggs of Bear Lake, Pa., slid back to the sixth spot at the finish, while Shane Clanton of Zebulon, Ga., finished seventh after running as high as third. Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., charged from the 24th starting spot to finish eighth with Mark Whitener of Middleburg, Fla., and Rick Eckert of York, Pa., rounding out the top 10.

The Bubba Army Winter Nationals continue Saturday with the first of two $10,000-to-win World of Outlaws Late Model Series events. The three-race weekend concludes Sunday. Hot laps on Saturday begin at 6 p.m., while Sunday's program gets rolling at 5 p.m. More information is available at www.bubbaracewaypark.com.

RESULTS FOR 2-8

MADSEN MAKES IT A CLEAN SWEEP OF ALL STARS
AT BUBBA RACEWAY PARK

OCALA, FL. (Sunday, Feb. 8, 2015) – Kerry Madsen made it look easy the first two nights of the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions visit to Bubba Raceway Park as he roared to the victories. However, the third night proved not to be so easy, but the outcome was the same. The Madman would lead 29 of the 30 laps and record his third straight victory.

Madsen’s three wins moves him atop the win total for All Star races at Bubba with 4 career victories…all in a row as he won the last series race at the track. It is his sixth overall All Star win.

Madsen, with his Brian Morrison horsepower, made a fantastic move in lapped traffic with five to go to retake the lead from Chad Kemenah, who had used the traffic to drive into the lead the previous lap.

“All weekend I’ve been running a real nice line and it’s worked well. Tonight it just wouldn’t work. It got real gritty up there so I just kind of figured no one was going to go around me up there cause I can’t go around anyone up there so I tried to start and stop it on the bottom. I wasn’t really good at it but I was good enough in one and two. Chad had me clean there and I had one shot around the outside and I took it. That was a tough race,” said Madsen beside his Keneric Racing/American Racing Custom Wheels/Earthex Logistics backed #29.

“Lapped traffic was difficult. I couldn’t get through it quite as good as I could the last two nights. You make a decision where someone was running the lap before and they change their line and I was struggling with it. I knew there would be someone on my heels and I wasn’t very good in four. When you’re running like that you’re trying to stay focused and maximize where you are good,” added Madsen.

“This is a fun track and I really appreciate the effort Bubba (Clem, track promoter) and Tony (Stewart, All Star owner) put in…especially Tony and all the All Star officials. The crowds have been fantastic and it’s a fun place to be,” concluded Madsen.

For Kemenah, who has been reunited with his brother Brian as the Hunter Racing Team mechanic, the strong second place run is a shot in the arm as the team heads to Volusia Speedway Park.

“It was a blast. Kerry did what he had to do. I got by him there and the lapped cars got pretty confusing sometimes but I’m not complaining. This feels great to be a race car driver rather than an owner…I can’t thank Rob and Rita Hunter enough and my brother and everybody sticking behind me. There’s a lot of people out there who probably think I can’t drive any more. I hope there was some people watching. I’m getting more and more comfortable every race with my brother and I hope we can keep going better and better. We’re going to get one before we leave Florida,” said Kemenah beside his Seneca Energy/Night Hawk Holdings/Brilex LLC backed #10h.

“I want to thank J&J, Kistler Engines…Paul builds a hell of a power plant…man this thing runs…it showed in qualifying,” added Kemenah.

For the second straight night Steve Kinser would bring his Tony Stewart-Curb Agajanian Motorsports #11 home in third though he and Kemenah battled several laps for the runner-up spot.

“We went backwards there early in the race and lost three or four spots then we got going pretty good. Sort of got trapped where I didn’t want to be at the start of the race and then got by Chad and shouldn’t have let him slip back by. I thought I had him and I got into one a little too slow and he got back by me. I was trying to catch the bottom there and I would have been better off to motor it right on in there. All in all I had a chance and just didn’t get it done,” said Kinser of his Bad Boy Buggies backed machine.

“It’s a pleasure just driving now. The past four years I’ve been taking care of the car and now it’s being taken care of at his (Tony Stewart) shop and I just show up and drive. I don’t have to worry about the guys working on the car and payroll. He let me run the team as I wanted to. I told him I didn’t want to run much more and he said why don’t you just run it out of my shop and I said that sounded like a good deal,” added Kinser..

Tim Shaffer and Madsen would bring the field to green for the 30 lap feature with Madsen gaining the advantage as Danny Holtgraver had a tremendous drive into second with Shaffer back to third followed by Dale Blaney, Kemenah and Steve Buckwalter in tow.

Shortly after two laps were scored Tyler Clem and Brent Matus would spin in turn four to bring out the caution. On the restart Madsen would pull away from Holtgraver as Kemenah powered to third with Blaney, Shaffer and Buckwalter giving chase. Kemenah would take second on lap six just as the caution would fly for a Caleb Armstrong spin. Armstrong would spin again on the restart.

When the green flew again the race would go to the end without a stoppage.

Madsen appeared to be comfortably on his way to the win until he encountered heavy lapped traffic on lap 12. Kemenah slowly ate into the Mad Man’s lead with Kinser also closing. By lap 17 Kemenah had his hands full with Kinser as they tried to chase down Madsen.

With eight laps to go the leaders were in heavy lapped traffic again and Kemenah and Kinser were within a couple of car lengths of Madsen who was struggling in turn four. Coming to the line to complete lap 24 Kemenah shot off the bottom of turn four, split a lapped car and took the lead.

But, going into turn one, Madsen shot to the outside to regain the top spot. With five laps to go the running order was Madsen, Kemenah, Kinser, Blaney and Holtgraver.

Madsen would clear the traffic and would drive to the win over Kemenah, Kinser, Blaney, Holtgraver, Shaffer, Wayne Johnson, Lucas Wolfe, Buckwalter and Parker Price Miller.

Florida Mini Sprints

From The PR Booth With John Moss
Robbie Smith Takes Night 2 At Bubba Raceway Park

What an experience for The Florida Mini Sprint Action and Eddie Moss Sr. Memorial Iron Man Champion and Bubba Raceway Park Track Champion Robbie Smith. The night started off with 13 Mini Sprints signing in to run on the same night and same track as Tony Stewarts All Star Sprint Car Circuit.

The #77 of Smith would pull the number 1 spot for Heat Race one and go on to win in dominating fashion as would the #8 car of Eddie Moss Jr. in the second Heat, but not before the #23 driven by Rhea Lynne Moss would go up in smoke with a blown engine and catch fire. Rhea Lynn would be okay, but her night would be ended.

Smith would then grab the top starting position, with young new comer ‪#‎12x‬ Ian Hord starting on the outside Pole. After running second to eventual winner Eddie Moss Jr. on night one, I had a really good feeling that The Robbie Smith Racing Team was going to go home and do their homework for night two and boy was I right. Robbie went on to lead every lap that he ran in his Heat and Feature cruising to a dominating win. The real race was for positions 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I spoke with Robbie's mom Jeanne Smith after the race and she said "I normally just watch Robbie when he's on the track, but the #12 Pawn King car of Robby Hoffmann and the #8 car put on quite show for the fans and I found myself watching them more than my own son". After speaking with Robbie it was proven to me that this was a very special night for him. As he was walking by Steve Kinser, and Kinser said to him, "Boy you must have done something right you got the trophy". Robbie ended up getting his trophy signed by "The King" himself and then NASCAR's Tony Stewart jumped in on the action and signed the trophy also. Hoffman and Moss Jr. would have an outstanding battle between the two of them for second and third passing each other a minimum of 6 different times, never touching each other, but getting extremely close. Hoffman's response after the race was "John, that was some of the most intense racing I've ever been involved in. I'm really pleased to bring the car home in one piece after running 2nd and 3rd on consecutive nights". Moss Jr would end up coming home in forth. The #67 Todd's Quality Tomatoes & Wholesale Produce Mini Sprint of David Hall had an extremely long but productive night. Hall started 4th, spun twice, had some contact with the #04 of Paige Moss but would eventually find a good line on the high side through turns 3 and 4 and bring home a podium finish. The ‪#‎24x‬ of Danny Sams Jr. would round out the top 5.

Thank you to all the Drivers and Teams who came out and supported the F.M.S.A. and a special Thank You to Bubba Raceway Park and Tony Stewart for this awesome opportunity.

RESULTS FOR 2-7

MADSEN MAKES IT TWO UNOH ALL STAR WINS IN A ROW
AT BUBBA RACEWAY PARK

OCALA, FL. (Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015) – Kerry Madsen seems to have found something at Bubba Raceway Park that the competition hasn’t discovered as yet. The Sydney, Australia native led all 30 laps Saturday to score his second straight University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions feature win in as many nights.

“The Mad Man” survived heavy lapped traffic and a couple of restarts to score his fifth career All Star victory – 3 of which have now come at Bubba Raceway Park.

“When you have Dale Blaney behind you there’s no letting up. We had a good run and a good car. I just really want to thank our sponsors, American Racing Custom Wheels, Earthex Logistics…big hello and thank you to the guys at home, Bob Gavranich and Pete Gavranich and a big thank you to our engine builder to Brian Meyers…the things just rip. Steve Kent at KCP Chassis…just fantastic race cars. Thanks to my wife…hope she’s listening out there in Iowa,” said Madsen of his Keneric Racing machine.

“I really enjoy being here and appreciate the effort of Bubba (Clem, track promoter) and Tony (Stewart, All Star owner) and everyone puts in. It was an enthusiastic crowd…we really appreciate that,” continued Madsen.

As for winning three in a row?

“You really come here just to have a good run. When you win a race the stars are aligned. It’s as simple as that. Tomorrow night is a new night and there are a lot of quick cars here. We’ve got a great package and we’ll see,” concluded Madsen.

Five time All Star champion Dale Blaney would hound Madsen and a few times in heavy lapped traffic closed to within a car length of the leader. And after suffering a mechanical failure on the season opener the previous night, Blaney was happy to finish second.

“I’m disappointed in qualifying. We raced really well after that. For what ever reason the last two nights we haven’t qualified good and I put 50 percent of that on me at least…maybe 80. I just haven’t made very good laps,” said Blaney beside his Kennedy Cattle/Winchester Ag Services/Penske Shocks backed machine.

“Kerry was a little bit better…traffic was pretty cool for awhile. It was fun. Kerry’s been running pretty good and to run second to him…I’ll take it,” said Blaney.

Steve Kinser would hold off a charging Danny Holtgraver for a third place finish.

“We didn’t make any headway. Started third and finished third. I just couldn’t get through three and four very good. I was pretty good in one and two. I could get through three in four about one every five or six times. I was just losing too much time there,” said Kinser beside his Tony Stewart/Curb-Agajanian Motorsports/Bad Boy Buggies #11.

Blaney and Madsen would bring the field to the green for the 30-lap feature with Madsen gaining the upper hand. The leaders would set a lightening quick pace, hitting lapped traffic by only the fourth circuit.

Blaney would drive to Madsen’s inside to challenge by lap five and six but once clear of traffic Madsen would pull away.

Behind the lead duo, Kinser, Steve Buckwalter, Wayne Johnson and Danny Holtgraver were battle for third.

Action would grind to a halt on lap 11 when Mark Coldren would tumble in turn four. After Coldren walked back to the infield and the track was cleared the green would fly with Madsen pulling away from Blaney with Kinser, Holtgraver, Buckwalter, Johnson, Chad Kemenah and Caleb Armstrong would follow.

The caution would fly soon after for a Tyler Clem spin. Again when the green flew so did Madsen who would catch the rear of the field at the halfway point as Blaney slowly closed with Kinser trying to hold off Holtgraver.

With 12 laps to go the running order was Madsen, Blaney, Kinser, Holtgraver, Johnson, a charging Danny Smith, Kemenah and Buckwalter.

Blaney and Kinser would get one more shot at Madsen when the caution would fly for the final time on lap 23 for an Armstrong spin. But, when the green reappeared Madsen would drive off.

At the checkers it was Madsen over Blaney, Kinser, Holtgraver and Johnson in the top five.

The UNOH All Stars will wrap up their three night event at Bubba Raceway Park on Sunday, Feb. 8. Bubba Raceway Park is located at 9050 NW Gainesville Rd in Ocala, Fla.

RESULTS FOR 2-6

Madsen scores last lap pass for win
to open new era for UNOH All Stars

By Brian Liskai

OCALA, FL. (Friday, Feb. 6, 2015) – Australian Kerry Madsen opened the new era for the University of Northwestern Ohio All Star Circuit of Champions with an exciting last lap pass of Aaron Reutzel to score the season opening victory at Bubba Raceway Park Friday night.

“The Mad Man” actually recorded the fastest lap of the entire race on that last lap. But it was a caution flag with three laps to go that gave him the opportunity as Reutzel’s motor began to sour. Madsen now has four career All Star wins.

“On that last lap I saw him (Reutzel) go to the bottom in one. I said a Hail Mary and went for it to the outside and it stuck. That was insane!” said Madsen who opened the All Star season in 2014 with a win at Bubba as well.

“I have to thank Tony (Stewart) and Bubba (Clem) for deciding to rework the track after qualifying. It made for a great feature. I have to thank my guys in the shop. They worked hard all winter and it showed tonight. Bob and Peter Gavranich (team owners) hopefully got to watch this on TV,” added Madsen beside his American Racing Custom Wheels, Earthex Logistics, Keneric Racing backed #29.

Reutzel, who already has a 410 win in 2015, looked to be on his way to his first All Star victory. The 24-year-old racer from Texas took the lead on lap two when Caleb Armstrong made contact with the turn four guard rail and threaded his way through lapped traffic like a surgeon.

But, with three laps to go Danny Smith, who was battling with Madsen for second, slipped off the racing groove in turn four and made contact with the front stretch wall to bring out the caution.

While under yellow, Reutzel actually developed a small oil fire. When the green flew on the restart Reutzel’s motor began to sound sour. As they raced to the white flag Madsen was right on Reutzel’s rear bumper and when Reutzel went to the bottom of turn one, Madsen shot around on the high side and drove to the win.

“I knew my motor was laying down…I was just trying to block those last couple of laps. I hate this for all the people who have helped me and supported me but we’ll be back tomorrow,” said Reutzel beside his BC Fundz/Basic One Services/Lone Star Hydro and Maintenance backed #87.

Aliquippa, Pennsylvania’s Tim Shaffer, a four time All Star champion, would drive a solid race to finish third.

“I have Ripper (Kyle) who came down with me to help work on the car. That allows me to watch the track and the competition and that is huge. I have to thank Bryan Grove for the opportunity and Gressman Powersports…they build a great engine for small tracks and big tracks,” said Shaffer of his Canton Erectors/Brilex LLC/Helms and Son Excavating backed #45.

Reutzel and Armstrong would bring the field to green for their 30-lap feature with Armstrong gaining the advantage. However, after leading the first lap, as he rocketed through turns three and four to complete lap 2, Armstrong slipped up the track and made contact with the outside fence, bringing out the caution.

On the restart Reutzel now led Smith, Madsen, Shaffer and Steve Kinser. But, the racing would grind to a halt shortly after as the team cars of Bradley Howard and Jordan Givler tangled in turn three with Howard getting upside down. Howard was uninjured but done for the night.

When the green flew again so did Reutzel as he pulled away from Smith. The leaders found lapped traffic by lap 9 and Reutzel’s lead began to evaporate. At the halfway point the running order was Reutzel, Smith, Shaffer, Madsen, Kinser and Chad Kemenah.

Reutzel, a rookie to 410 sprint car racing, sliced and dices his way through traffic and with five laps to go held a 6 car length lead over Smith who now had his hands full with Madsen. With three to go, Smith slipped up high in turn four and made contact with the turn four fence, ending his night and setting up the fantastic finish.

The UNOH All Stars will be back in action Saturday, Feb. 7 and Sunday, Feb. 8 at Bubba Raceway Park. Bubba Raceway Park is located at 9050 NW Gainesville Rd in Ocala, Fla.

SATURATED SURFACE POSTPONES ALL STAR OPENER AT BUBBA RACEWAY PARK

OCALA, Fla. (February 5, 2015) - Heavy overnight rains that lingered late into the morning have forced All Star Circuit of Champions and Bubba Raceway Park officials to postpone tonight's scheduled season opener for the 2015 UNOH All Star Circuit of Champions Sprint Car Series.

"There was simply no way we could put together a quality race surface for the teams and an entertaining show for the fans tonight," said promoter Bubba Clem. "Everyone has worked so hard to get here the past couple of weeks, the last thing we wanted to do is have them tear up their equipment, so we're going to race on Sunday and give the racers their full three day show."

The three-day Bubba Army Winter Nationals, paying $5,000-to-win each night, now shifts to Friday, February 6, Saturday, February 7 and Sunday, February 8. Friday and Saturday's events will begin at 7:30 p.m. while Sunday's racing will feature a special early start time of 5:30 p.m.

Arthur Beef Farms Special. Arthur had to go to the back of the pack early in the 100-lap race, but put on a show getting back to the front.

After a ten-lap side-by-side battle for the lead with Keith Nosbisch of Valrico, FL, Arthur took the lead for good on lap 76 and never looked back to claim the top prize of $10,000. Arthur said he made the right choice on tires, even though he second guessed himself just before the race started.

“We had the right tire combination tonight, as we had a little harder tire on the right-rear than most everyone else did,” Arthur said. “Just before the race, I wasn’t sure that it wasn’t too hard, and I wanted to change it while they were doing driver introductions. NeSmith Competition Director Tim Sims wouldn’t let me do it, and now I’m glad he didn’t let me!”

Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL finished second in the Dave’s Towing Special, and Max Blair of Centerville, PA was another driver that came from the back to the from to finish third in the R&J Poultry Rocket. Matt Henderson of Loudon, TN took the fourth spot in the Mighty Muffler and Brakes Rocket, and Nosbisch finished fifth in the Image Skin Care Rocket.

Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, WV was sixth in the Bland’s Towing Rocket, and the youngest driver in the race, 12-year-old Tyler Clem of St. Petersburg, FL finished seventh in the Vahlco Wheels Rocket. Two-time NeSmith Late Model National Champion David Earl Gentry of Murfreesboro, TN drove the Hardy & Associates Special to an eighth-place finish.

Doug Horton of Wimamma, FL took the ninth spot in the Bobby Lake Motorsports Warrior, and his 13-year-old teammate Michael Lake of Uniontown, PA rounded out the top ten in his Bobby Lake Motorsports Special.

In preliminary action on Saturday night, Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL drove the Edge’s Gas Company Special to victory in the 20-lap B-Main Race. Qualifying and Heat Races for the event took place on November 21, 2014, as Saturday night’s action was rescheduled from a November 22, 2014 rainout.

On November 21, 2014, two-time and defending NeSmith Late Model National Champion Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN set fast time honors among the 49 entrants with a lap in 15.334 seconds.

The four 15-lap heat races on November 21, 2014 were won by Darrell Lanigan of Union, KY in the Club 29 Special, Hawkins, Dennis “Rambo” Franklin of Gaffney, SC in the M&W Towing Special and Justin McRee of Woodstock, AL in the High Roller Race Cars Special.

A more detailed account of the 10th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race will be released on Monday.

RESULTS FOR 1-30

NOSBISCH TAKES BUBBA RACEWAY PARK
NeSMITH LATE MODEL WIN

OCALA, FL – No matter where the competition comes from, Keith Nosbisch of Valrico, FL has always been tough when it comes to keeping the big money in the Sunshine State. Friday night was no exception, as Nosbisch took his fifth NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series career win and his first in seven years during the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park.

Nosbisch, a 30 year veteran of Florida dirt late model racing, was the class of the field, as he set fast time honors to earn the pole position for the 50-lap race, and led 44 laps to collect the $3,000 top prize driving the Image Skin Care Rocket. Nosbisch lost the lead for six laps to Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, but stuck to his inside groove to retake the point.

“The lapped cars really slowed my pace down by a half a second, and Walker caught me behind a lapped car and passed me for the lead on the outside,” Nosbisch said. “I knew if I was patient enough, I could get back under him if the lapped cars would give me enough room and they did.”

Wednesday night’s race winner, Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL finished second in the Dave’s Towing Special and Arthur ended up third in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. Arthur leads the NeSmith Late Model point standings after the first three races with a 12 point advantage over Whitener.

Dennis “Rambo” Franklin of Gaffney, SC took the fourth spot in the M&W Transportation Special and Matt Henderson of Loudon, TN drove the Mighty Muffler and Brakes Rocket to a fifth-place finish and was the Rookie of the Race. Doug Horton of Wimamma, FL finished sixth in the Bobby Lake Motorsports Warrior.

Tyler Clem of St. Petersburg, FL was the seventh-place finisher in the Vahlco Wheels Rocket and was the Young Gun Challenger of the Race. Clem, who at the age of 12 was the youngest driver in the race, was followed by the oldest driver in the race, 61-year-old Johnny Stokes of Columbus, MS, who finished eighth in the Bassett Hound Motorsports Special.

Jake Knowles of Rome, GA started 17th and finished ninth in the Coosa Heating and Air Rocket to earn the Beyea Headers Hard Charger of the Race Award. Two-time and defending NeSmith Late Model Champion Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN rounded out the top ten in the NeSmith Chevrolet Special.

In preliminary action, Nosbisch was the Fast Qualifier with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 16.252 seconds. The four ten-lap B-Main Races were won by Franklin, Justin McRee of Woodstock, AL in the High Roller Race Cars Special, Henderson and Whitener.

Nosbisch took the lead at the start of the race followed by Arthur, Whitener, McRee and Franklin. McRee got by Whitener for the third spot on lap two, but up front, Nosbisch was pulling away and had a full straightaway lead on Arthur by lap six when he began to encounter the cars on the tail end of the lead lap.

On lap 12, Nosbisch got caught behind a lapped car and Arthur worked the outside on the backstretch to take the lead. On lap 18, Nosbisch came charging back on the inside and went four-wide with Arthur and two lapped cars down the front straightaway. Nosbisch reclaimed the point for good in turn one.

Brian Conner of Augusta, GA spun the Lazar’s Trailers Special in turn two to bring out the first of eight caution flags in turn two. Nosbisch had Arthur, McRee, Whitener, Henderson, Franklin, Horton, Johnson, Stokes and Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, WV in the Bland’s Towing Rocket doubled up behind him for the “Dixie-Style” double-file restart.

When the field went back to green flag racing, Whitener was able to work underneath McRee for the third spot in turn two. By lap 25, Nosbisch had already opened up a half straightaway lead on Arthur before the second caution flag came out on lap 28 when Michael Lake of Uniontown, PA in the Bobby Lake Motorsports Special, Ryan Crane of Panama City, FL in the Panama City Cycles Special and Adam Beeler of Knoxville, TN in the Mighty Muffler and Brakes CVR tangled in turn two.

After the restart, McRee began to fall back through the pack dropping from fourth to seventh on lap 29. Debris on the front straightaway lit up the caution bulb for the third time in the race on lap 34. On the restart, several drivers, including Whitener and Johnson tried to work the outside groove to see if they could build some momentum.

A three-car battle for the second spot developed among Arthur, Whitener and Franklin that got intense on lap 35 when Whitener got into the back of Arthur in turn four. Walker got sideways, but Whitener lifted the throttle just enough to let Arthur gather up his race car.

The fourth caution flag came out on lap 37 when Shan Smith of Dade City, FL spun the SS Performance Racing CVR down the front straightaway. Johnson gave up the seventh spot with a cut tire during the caution period, but returned to the race. McRee then moved up to seventh for the restart, but he gave that up when he spun on the backstretch after the green flag came out.

McRee’s troubles continued on lap 38 when he spun in turn four collecting Cale Conley of Vienna, WV in the AAA General Contractors Special and two-time NeSmith Late Model National Champion David Earl Gentry of Murfreesboro, TN in the Hardy & Associates Special.

Whitener was on the outside of Arthur for the Dixie Style double-file restart and he made it work when the green flag came back out to take the second spot going into turn one. Whitener tried to look to the inside of Nosbisch, but the race leader would not budge from the bottom of the race track.

The race slowed by two more caution flags when Ryan King of Seymour, TN stalled the Brian King Roofing Stinger in turn four on lap 45, and Hawkins spun in turn four and collected Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL in the Edge’s Gas Company Special on lap 46. Nosbisch was able to run just fast enough on each restart to keep Whitener behind him.

The NeSmith Late Models return to Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday night for the 100-lap $10,000-to-win 10th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race. This non-points event was rescheduled from a rainout on November 22, 2014.

The first 16 starting spots were determined through Heat Races on November 21, 2014. There will also be a pair of 20-lap B-Main Races where the top three finishers will transfer to the remaining starting spots for the World Championship Race.

BLAIR OUTLASTS LEAKING TIRE FOR NeSMITH LATE MODEL WIN

Max Blair of Centerville, PA celebrates his NeSmith Late Model win on Thursday night in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL driving the R&J Poultry Rocket. With a win and third-place showing in the first two nights of racing, Blair leads the NeSmith Late Model point standings. (PhotosByTrace.com)

OCALA, FL – Max Blair of Centerville, PA had to outrun the competition and a leaking right-rear tire to win the 50-lap main event on Thursday night for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park. Blair drove the R&J Poultry Rocket to the $2,500 win and the NeSmith Late Model point lead.

“During a caution period on lap 20, my dad gave me a signal that my right-rear tire was going down,” Blair said. “I worked the car back and forth, and it felt fine, so I just kept going. I was really sweating it out in the last laps of the race because I could really feel it going away, but it stayed up until right after I took the checkered flag.”

Blair started out the evening by taking fast time honors with a lap around Bubba Raceway Park in 15.947 seconds to earn the pole position for the main event. Blair took the lead at the start of the race, but he had plenty of company throughout the race.

The first nine laps were led by Blair, and then he decided to go to the outside to negotiate around the cars on the tail of the lead lap. That opened up the inside groove for Walker Arthur of Forest, VA, who got under Blair for the lead on lap ten. Blair then had to battle for the second spot with David Earl Gentry of Murfreesboro, TN and defending and two-time NeSmith Late Model Champion Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN.

On lap 40, Arthur caught some heavy lapped traffic, but stayed on bottom groove of the track, Blair once again chose the high side to get around the traffic, and made it work to take the lead. Even with a slowly deflating right-rear tire, Blair pulled away to take a 2.546 second margin of victory under the checkered flag.

“Track owner Bubba Clem and his crew did a great job getting the track in a racy condition tonight,” Blair said. “We got started a little late tonight, and a lot of people weren’t sure we’d get tonight’s race in, but they got done what they needed to do and it was worth the wait. The fans got to see some great racing tonight.”

Two-time NeSmith Late Model National Champion Gentry finished second in the Hardy & Associates on a night that he wasn’t planning on racing. Just before qualifying started, Gentry entered the event, came out last to qualify with a cold race car, and qualified seventh quick.

Gentry, who is the co-promoter at Duck River Raceway Park in Wheel, TN, had to give credit where credit was due after the race.

“I really didn’t think we were going to get the track in good enough shape to race on it tonight, but I have to take my hat off to Bubba Clem and his crew for the job they did tonight,” Gentry said. “Working with new clay that has been rained on as much as this new clay has is almost impossible to get it laid down right. They kept working it and working it until they got it where it needed to be.”

After leading 30 laps of the race, Arthur finished third in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special and trails Blair in the NeSmith Late Model point standings by eight points. Johnson took the fourth spot in the NeSmith Chevrolet Special.

The youngest driver in the race, 12-year-old Tyler Clem of St. Petersburg, FL drove the Vahlco Wheels Rocket to a fifth-place finish from the 16th starting position to claim three different awards. Clem was the Beyea Headers Hard Charger of the Race, the Rookie of the Race, and the Young Gun Challenge Series Driver of the Race.

Clem also sits third in the NeSmith Late Model point standings, 16 points out of first place. He also leads the NeSmith Late Model Rookie of the Year points, and the Young Gun Challenge Series point standings.

Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL finished sixth in the Edge’s Gas Company Special and Jake Knowles of Rome, GA took the seventh spot in the Coosa Heating and Air Rocket. Ryan King of Seymour, TN was eighth in the Brian King Roofing Stinger, and Mallory Harvey of Baxley, GA drove the Rentz Farms Rocket to a ninth-place finish.

Brian Connor of Augusta, GA rounded out the top ten in the Lazar’s Trailers Special. In preliminary action, the two 12-lap B-Main Races were won by Cody Martin of Christiana, TN in the Martin Motorsports Warrior and 13-year-old Michael Lake of Uniontown, PA in the Bobby Lake Motorsports Special.

Blair took the lead at the start of the race, but an eight-car tangle in turn four on the opening tour of the race necessitated a complete restart. All eight cars were able to continue, and once again, it was Blair leading lap one followed Arthur, Edge, Justin McRee of Woodstock, AL in the High Roller Race Cars Special, and Gentry.

The second of eight caution flags came out on lap two when Lake stalled on the backstretch. Blair opened up an eight car-length advantage over Walker by the time he caught the cars on the tail end of the lead lap on lap seven. Arthur closed the gap between himself and Blair quickly.

Blair went to high side of Adam Beeler of Knoxville, TN in the Mighty Muffler and Brake CVR, while Arthur stayed on the bottom of the track. Arthur shot underneath both Blair and Beeler to take the point coming off the fourth turn on lap ten. Marcus Minga of Shannon, MS stalled his B&M Salvage Rocket on the backstretch to light up the caution bulb for the third time on lap 12.

Behind the new leader Arthur were Blair, Edge, McRee, Gentry, Johnson, Knowles, Rick Singleton of Hesston, PA in the Rick Singleton Rentals Special, Joe Mike of Mayfield, KY in the Mike Farms Special, and King. Singleton spun out of the eighth spot on the restart to bring out the fourth caution flag.

McRee spun in turn four on lap 13 to bring the caution flag for the fifth time. The top ten for the next “Dixie Style” double-file restart had Arthur leading Blair, Gentry, Edge, Knowles, Johnson, Mike, Johnny Stokes of Columbus, MS in the Bassett Hound Motorsports Special, King, Harvey and Connor.

Knowles and Johnson powered underneath Edge on the restart to take over the fourth and fifth spots respectively. Arthur pulled out to a half straightaway lead over Blair by lap 15, and by lap 20 Arthur had stretched his lead out to a full straightaway. Arthur’s lead was erased on lap 21 when Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL spun the Dave’s Towing Special in turn one to bring out the sixth caution flag.

When the field went back to green flag action, Johnson stepped to the outside and found the high side to his liking in turns one and two, but he stayed inside in turns three and four. Johnson got around the outside of Knowles to take over the fourth spot on lap 22. Connor spun in turn four on lap 26 bring out the yellow flag, but got his spot for the restart, as McRee was ticketed with the caution flag for causing Connor to spin.

The halfway point in the race saw Arthur leading Blair, Gentry, Johnson, Knowles, Edge, Mike, King, Clem, and Stokes. Arthur took off with the lead on the restart, as business picked up behind him for the second position.

Johnson went to the outside to drive by Gentry for the third spot on the restart, and on lap 27, Gentry and Johnson caught Blair to make it a three-way battle for second. Coming off the second turn it was three-wide with Gentry on the bottom, Blair in the middle, and Johnson on the outside.

That battle settled down in another lap with Blair hanging on to the second spot, Gentry settling back into third, and Johnson looking on the outside in the fourth spot. By lap 37, Arthur was in heavy lapped traffic, and Blair pounced to close in to challenge for the point.

On lap 40, Blair stepped to the outside in turn one, pulled up alongside Arthur in turn two, and took the lead coming off the second turn. Blair began to pull away, but his progress to the finish was slowed by the eighth and final caution flag on lap 43 when Connor spun down the front straightaway.

Blair led Arthur, Gentry, Johnson, Edge, Clem, Knowles, King, Whitener, and Harvey down for the green flag to begin the eight lap dash to the finish. Gentry made a bold inside move on Arthur to take over the second spot on the restart. Gentry now set his sights on Blair, but the leader pulled away to take his first career win with the NeSmith Late Models.

Night three of the Rock Auto.com Winternationals for the NeSmith Late Models will take place on Friday night at Bubba Raceway Park with a 50-lap $3,000-to-win main event.

WHITENER CATCHES AIR TO VICTORY
IN NeSMITH LATE MODEL SEASON OPENER

Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL drives the #58 Dave’s Towing Special to victory on Wednesday night in the season opener for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in the Rock Auto.com Winternationals at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, FL. (Photos By Trace.com)


OCALA, FL – Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL bounced his way to victory on Wednesday night in the 40-lap NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series season opener at Bubba Raceway Park driving the Dave’s Towing Special. Whitener had to hold on through adverse track conditions to bring his race car home in one piece to take the win.

                Several inches of rain earlier in the week gave track owner Bubba Clem and his crew a challenge just to even have the track with a new clay surface ready to race on Wednesday night for the Rock Auto.com Winternationals season opener. A deep hole in the turn four surface developed with ten laps to go that sent the dirt late models airborne coming off the corner.

                “I race here a lot and Bubba and his crew do a great job to always have the best track conditions, so tonight was an exception because of all of the rain we’ve had here,” Whitener said. “I thought they did great just to give us a track we could race on early, but when the hole developed in turn four, we just had to get through it as best we could.”

                As the rut deepened in turn four, Whitener had a big lead over Jacob Hawkins of Fairmont, WV in the Bland’s Towing Rocket. After Whitener bounced through the hole a couple of times, he started to drive around it on the high side of the track. After a caution flag restart with four laps to go, Whitener was back down rough riding on the bottom of the track in turn four.

                “After I bounced through the hole in turn four a couple of times, I tried to go around it on the high side,” Whitener said. “When I did that, the car didn’t feel as fast as it did when I was driving through the hole. After the car landed coming out of the hole, the car felt like it got better forward bite. We’ll have to look at the tape and see which way was faster.”

                Whitener was able to hang on and take a 1.415 second margin of victory over Hawkins. Max Blair of Centerville, PA finished third in the R&J Poultry Rocket, and Walker Arthur of Forest, VA took the fourth spot in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. Ryan King of Seymour, TN was fifth in the Brian King Roofing Stinger.

                Sixth-place went to 12-year-old Tyler Clem of St. Petersburg, FL, who was both the Rookie of the Race and the Young Gun of the Race. Then it went from the youngest driver in the race to the most senior driver, 61-year-old Johnny Stokes of Columbus, MS, who drove the Bassett Hound Motorsports Special to a seventh-place finish.

         Cody Martin of Christiana, TN took the eighth spot in the Martin Motorsports Warrior. Ryan Crane of Panama City, FL started 22nd and finished ninth in the Panama City Cycles Special to earn the Beyea Headers Hard Charger of the Race Award. NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Cale Conley of Vienna, WV rounded out the top ten in the AAA General Contractors Special.

                History was made in preliminary action, as 13-year-old Michael Lake of Uniontown, PA became the youngest driver in the 11-year history of the NeSmith Late Models to earn a Fast Time Award, as he toured the track during Qualifications in 15.755 seconds and take the pole position for the main event. The two 12-lap B-Main Races were won by Stokes and Rick Singleton of Hesston, PA in the Rick Singleton Rentals Special.

                Lake took the lead at the start of the race followed by Whitener, Hawkins, King, and Cody Dawson of Westover, MD in the R&J Poultry Rocket. The first of five caution flags came out on lap two when Cla Knight of North Augusta, SC in the Augusta Aquatics Special, Singleton, Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, VA in the Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special and defending and two-time NeSmith Late Model Champion Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN in the NeSmith Chevrolet Special tangled in turn one.

                The second caution flag came out on the restart after Dawson pounded the backstretch wall while running fifth. The next restart saw Clem work to the inside of King, and take the fourth spot on lap three, only to give up the spot a couple of laps later when the Young Gun Challenge Series driver dropped to the eighth spot.

                Hawkins drove inside Whitener coming off the fourth turn on lap five to claim the second spot. While Hawkins and Whitener battled for second, Lake began to pull away, but his big margin was erased on lap nine when Conley spun in turn two to bring out the third caution flag. Lake led Hawkins, Whitener, King, Arthur, Blair, Stokes, Clem, Joe Mike of Mayfield, KY in the Mike Farms Special and Martin down for the restart.

                On the restart, Arthur got to the inside of King coming off the fourth turn to take the fourth spot. Whitener picked up the pace on lap 13 when he powered inside of Hawkins coming off the fourth turn to take over the second spot, but he didn’t stay there long.

                Whitener quickly reeled in Lake, who seemed to be slowing off his early race pace. On lap 14, Whitener once again used the bottom groove coming off the fourth turn to get underneath Lake and take the lead. Lake began to drop through the pack before calling it a night on lap 17. At the halfway point, Whitener led Hawkins, Arthur, Blair, King, Clem, Stokes, Crane, Mike and Martin.

                With just about every car in the field using the bottom groove in turn four, the surface gave up the ghost on lap 30 and began to come apart, sending all takers in its path airborne coming off the corner. If anything, it created wholesale position changes, as drivers straightened themselves out and tried to maneuver around to depression.

                Bronson Berry of Huntingdon, TN lit up the caution bulb for the fourth time on lap 32 when he stalled the Garner Brothers Farms Special in turn one. The top ten for the restart were Whitener, Hawkins, Blair, Arthur, King, Stokes, Clem, Crane, Martin and Conley, who was one lap down. Whitener was sailing around the outside of the turn four crater and was pulling away from Hawkins.

                Johnson stalled in turn four with a cut tire on lap 37 to bring out the final caution flag. The top ten for the dash to the cash were Whitener, Hawkins, Blair, Arthur, Stokes, King, Clem, Crane, Martin and Conley. Whitener stayed on the treacherous bottom groove to the finish, with his car coming completely off the ground a couple of times before taking the checkered flag.

                The NeSmith Late Models return to Bubba Raceway Park on Thursday night for a 50-lap $2,500-to-win main event. For Whitener and the rest of the competitors, it will be long and busy 24-hours, as they go over their race cars with a fine tooth comb looking for anything bent or broken from the night before.

                “These race cars are pretty tough, but we’ll take some extra time before tomorrow night looking everything over closely and we’ll probably replace some things just to be on the safe side,” Whitener said. “I know Bubba, his crew, and this race track pretty well. I believe we will have a much better race track tomorrow night and the rest of the week.”

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.
