Holds Back Blaney and Hodnett for Third Career Series Victory

OCALA, Florida (February 5, 2016) - For the third time in his career and for the first time since 2007, Kraig Kinser found victory lane with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. The Bloomington, Indiana, native scored $5,000 for his wire-to-wire triumph at Bubba Raceway Park on Friday, February 5, officially capturing the first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions win of the 2016 season. Defending All Star champion Dale Blaney finished second, followed by Greg Hodnett, Chad Kemenah and a hard charging Caleb Armstrong.

“It always feels great to be in victory lane, no matter where you are at or what time of the year it is” Kraig Kinser said, “The last couple laps, I was really hard on my tires. I knew those guys had to be all around me. I could see guys below me on a few of those restarts. I'm just happy to be standing up here in victory lane."

Greg Hodnett and Kraig Kinser led the 24-starters to green during the first Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions main event of 2016. Kinser took command on the initial start and kept control at the front of the field until the main event’s first caution appeared on lap seven. Dale Blaney, who started sixth on the main event grid, worked his way to third before the event’s first pause, with Greg Hodnett riding just ahead in the runner-up position.

A caution during the initial lap-seven restart would reset the running order once again. Action would continue following a second lap-seven restart, allowing Kraig Kinser to resume his position at the front of the field. The “Low Rider” Dale Blaney worked his way to second by the tenth circuit of the 30-lap main event, making Kraig Kinser his next intended target. For nearly ten circuits, Dale Blaney and Greg Hodnett attempted to hunt down Kinser through slower traffic, racing within car-lengths and eventually bumper to bumper, but never working around the Arctic Cat, No. 11K. In the meantime, Hodnett would reclaim second on lap 23.

Yellow flag conditions would return to the speedway on lap 24, bunching the field back together once again. Dale Blaney reclaimed second from Greg Hodnett after the lap-24 restart, but neither had enough time or tire to catch Kraig Kinser.

“We tried to get around Kraig a few different times, but he just made all of the right moves and plugged all of the right holes” Dale Blaney said, “We’ll take this. Muddy and Big Game give us a great opportunity to do this. My guys keep plugging away. Hopefully we can come back and do one better tomorrow.”

"We are super happy to get it done tonight." Kraig Kinser said, "Super thrilled to win with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions while flying the Arctic Cat colors.”

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will conclude their Bubba Army Winter Nationals campaign at Bubba Raceway Park on Saturday evening, February 6. Like Friday night, teams will participate in a full Arctic Cat All Star program, capped off with a $5,000 payday. Pit gates are scheduled to swing open at 3 p.m. tomorrow afternoon, with hot laps hitting the speedway at 6 p.m., followed by racing at 7 o’clock. Main grandstands will open at 4:00 p.m. sharp.

Davenport Dominates Round Seven at Bubba

<!--featured-image-->

By Mike Spieker

OCALA, FL (February 5, 2016) – With round six of the Sunshine State Modified Tour (SSMT) being rained out at North Florida Speedway in Lake City, the tour headed back to Bubba Raceway Park for the first of two consecutive nights at the egg-shaped 3/8th mile. Once again Tait Davenport drove to the front in the main event and became the first repeat winner of the SSMT.

Todd Neiheiser and Kevin “Buzzy” Adams lined up on the front row for the 30 lap feature. It took four attempts to get the first lap completed, but once they did Adams led the way in his Brandon Ford No. 40.
Neiheiser, Nick Allen and Davenport all fought for the second spot early on, but as things got sorted out Davenport took the position with a slider on Allen off of turn four. Neiheiser held tough in the top five throughout the first half of the race, but began to fade as the race wore on.

A yellow flag on lap 14 erased Adams comfortable lead and put the No. 18D of Davenport right on his rear bumper. The green flag was displayed once again and Davenport drove deep into turn one. Adams rode the low side of the speedway, but Davenport got a great run off the cushion and the two went door to door down the back straightaway. Davenport cleared Adams off of turn four to lead at the line where they were given the crossed flags.

Once out front Davenport could not be touched as he cruised out to a huge lead and led the final 15 laps to become the SSMT’s first repeat winner. Adams, Josh Harris, Johnny Broking, and Will Krup rounded out the top five.

Trent Young came into the night as the SSMT points leader, but a subpar qualifying lap and heat race put the Crofton, KY driver in the B-main. Young was able to grab a transfer spot, which put him inside row 12 for the A-main. Young wheeled his way up to seventh when the checkers flew in the A-main, but it wasn’t enough to retain his point lead. Heading into round eight Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park, Adams holds a 14 point lead over Young as the hard charging Davenport sits in third 23 points behind Adams.

RESULTS FOR 2-3

Davenport Doubles Down at Bubba

<!--featured-image-->

By Mike Spieker

OCALA, FL (February 3, 2016) – The Sunshine State Modified Tour (SSMT) left East Bay Raceway Park and headed down the road to Bubba Raceway Park for round five on Wednesday night. The evening featured a 25-lap main event followed by the $1,000-to-win OctaneTrade.com King of the Sunshine bracket race. Both events were swept by Tait Davenport of Benton, Kentucky.

For the second night in a row, Peoria, Illinios’ Allen Weisser lined up on the front row with overall quick timer and heat race winner, Davenport, to his outside. Weisser jumped out to the lead as the initial green flag flew. Davenport and Trent Young battled for second as the top five raced around the bottom two grooves of the speedway.

Lap two proved to be disastrous for seven drivers as Kenny Wallace got loose in turn one and slid across the track. Nobody made contact with the No. 36 Toyota, but the field stacked up as a result and a big pile up ensued. Involved in the incident were Kenny Schrader, Jesse Hoskins and Todd Neiheiser, among others.

The race resumed and Weisser remained in the lead with Young and Davenport in tow. The top three drivers rode in that order until the caution flew with five laps to go. Under caution Weisser mysteriously retired his machine to the pit area, giving the lead to Young.

On the restart, Young and Davenport went door to door for the point. Young rode around the low side of the speedway, but Davenport charged by running the cushion upstairs. Once out front, Davenport opened up a comfortable lead over Young while Tyler Clem and Kevin Adams battled for fourth.

At the checkers it was Davenport taking the win as Young, Adams, Clem, and Josh Harris rounded out the top five.

After five rounds of the SSMT, Young leads Adams, Bollinger, Wallace, and Davenport in the points standings.

A quick intermission gave the drivers and crews a chance to fine tune their machines for the $1,000-to-win OctaneTrade.com King of the Sunshine bracket race. With two rounds in the books, the stage was set with the final four participants. The first and second place finishers in the A-main, Davenport and Young, faced off one more time and once again Davenport took the win and moved on to the final round. On the other side of the bracket, Kevin Adams went up against Billy Smith, who is the crew chief for Kenny Wallace and hopped in Jesse Hoskins’ No. 71. Smith was the Cinderella story of the bracket challenge as he charged through each round with his crate motor. His ride came to an end in the semis, however, as Adams charged on to the win.

That set up a final with Davenport and Adams. The two raced side by side on lap one, but as the white flag flew, Adams pushed off of turn four and that’s all Davenport needed to cash in once again and pick up another $1,000.

Arctic Cat All Stars Set for Florida Invasion

Arctic Cat All Stars Set for Florida Invasion

Chad Kemenah Dale Blaney Steve Kinser All Star Sprints BRP

INDIANAPOLIS (February 2, 2016) - The stars and cars of the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will hit the dirt for the first time in 2016 on Friday evening, February 5, in sunny north central Florida. The traveling Arctic Cat All Stars will compete in a total of four events during their Florida venture, co-headlining such programs as the 5th annual Bubba Army Winter Nationals and the 45th annual DIRTcar Nationals.

After an open practice date on Thursday, February 4, the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions, led by six-time and defending series champion Dale Blaney, will officially launch their 2016 campaign with back-to-back programs on Friday and Saturday, February 5-6, at the Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida. Race teams will attempt to not only capture the $5,000 top prize being awarded each night, but also work to end Kerry Madsen’s winning streak at the Ocala oval. The “Madman” swept All Star Circuit of Champions competition during the Bubba Army Winter Nationals in 2015.

The Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions will continue their tour through the “Sunshine State” less than a week later at the Volusia Speedway Park near Barberville, Florida. Similar to their Ocala visit, teams will participate in an open practice on Tuesday evening, February 9, followed by two consecutive nights of DIRTcar Nationals competition on Wednesday and Thursday, February 10-11. The Arctic Cat All Star doubleheader will kick-off a five-day stretch of 410 sprint car action during the DIRTcar Nationals, with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Cars headlining the last three events on February 12-14. Greg Hodnett and Daryn Pittman earned All Star victories during the 2015 edition of the DIRTcar Nationals.

“We are all pretty excited to get the season started in a few days,” said Don Grabey, Series Director of the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions. “With the snow and cold weather up north, there’s no better cure than Florida in February for sprint car teams and fans.”

RESULTS FOR 1-30

THE COYOTE CATCHES THE ROAD RUNNER
AND RAMBO CAPTURES THE WORLD


OCALA, FL – Dennis “Rambo” Franklin of Gaffney, SC is like the Coyote in the Road Runner cartoon when it comes to the Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race.  He has tried for ten years to win the race, and has come so close only to have an anvil fall out of the sky to crush his chances.  That all changed on Saturday night at Bubba Raceway Park.

Rambo conquered the World.  Franklin drove the M&W Transportation Special to victory in the biggest race of the year for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series, the 11th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race.  Franklin, as the Coyote, captured the Road Runner in the form of Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL.

But it wasn’t easy, as Franklin had to look out for anvils falling out of the sky during the last 11 laps of the 100-lap race, as Bronson made a sly Road Runner move.  Franklin had taken the lead from Bronson on lap 26, and proceeded to set a fast pace.  By the time a caution flag came out on lap 89, Rambo had put everyone from fourth on back at least one lap down.

Once the field slowed for the caution flag, Bronson headed for the hot pit area in the infield to bolt on a soft tire.  The Hoosier Racing Tires the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series drivers can use are a Crate Racin’ USA 55 or a Crate Racin’ USA 21.  The 55 is harder and lasts longer, while the softer 21 is faster, it doesn’t last as long.

Speed vs. Durability.  Franklin had bolted on 55s at the start of the race.  So, Bronson bolted on a new 21 for speed, while Franklin had on a 55 with 89 fast laps on it.  So, let’s turn the channel to hear those famous words from Scooby Doo, “Rut Roe Raggy!”  The NeSmith Late Model Rules state with you go to the pits under caution, you go to the tail of the cars on the lead lap if you can get back out before the green flag is displayed.

It was a perfect storm for both drivers.  So what if Bronson gives up the second spot with 11 laps to go.  When he comes back out, he restarts in third as the last driver on the lead lap.  Add to that, the race was still outside the ten to go point when all restarts are single file.  With 11 laps to go, the Dixie-Style Double-File Restart would see Bronson restarting right behind Franklin and alongside the second-place driver Cale Conley of Vienna, WV.

Conley chose the inside for the double-file restart and that put Bronson on the outside with a new 21 bolted on the right-rear.  Franklin, the Coyote, was a sitting duck and you could hear the whistle of that anvil coming down from the darkness of a cool Central Florida evening.

The green flag came out and Bronson, the Road Runner, went to the top shelf where no driver had been for 40 previous laps.  Franklin stayed glued to the bottom of the track trying to get the heat he needed to put his 55 to the test.  Bronson went “Beep-Beep” as he got a run off the second turn on the high side, and his momentum launched him alongside Franklin.

The only problem with this scenario is that the electronic scoring of the race takes place on the other side of the race track.  Bronson was not as sporty on the cushion through turns three and four, and couldn’t get off turn four like he could turn two.  Franklin, on the other hand, came off the bottom of turn four like a shell fired from a howitzer cannon.

This scenario played out for seven laps before Bronson had to tuck in behind Franklin and try something else.  Bronson reloaded for another shot at Franklin in the final two laps, but Rambo took a .716 second margin of victory under the checkered flag.  The anvil missed its mark.  The Coyote had finally defeated the Road Runner to collect $10,000 for his efforts.

“I can’t believe we have finally won this race,” Franklin said.  “We’re been to every one of the ten races before tonight, and we led a lot of them only to have something go wrong to knock us out of the race.  When I saw Kyle head for the pits for a fresh 21, I thought here we go again, but I decided to stick with the 55.  It had got me to that point in the race, and I just had to stick with it.  This is a win we will always cherish.”

Bronson, who had won a 50-lap NeSmith Late Model race earlier on Saturday, had to settle for second in the Brandon Ford Special.  It was a pretty good two days for Bronson, has he also finished second in the NeSmith Late Model 50-lap race at Bubba Raceway Park on Friday night.

Conley, who is a former NASCAR Xfinity Series driver, showed his dirt track racing skills with a third-place finish in the AAA General Contractors Special.  The drivers that finished fourth through tenth were one lap down to Franklin at the finish of the race. 

The 2015 NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Championship Runner-Up and the Cruise With The Champions Rookie of the Year Ryan King of Seymour, TN finished fourth in the Brian King Roofing Stinger.  Trent Ivey of Union, SC took the fifth spot in the Ivey Construction Special.

Matt Henderson of Loudon, TN made the trip to Ocala, FL without his own race car and jumped into a car he had never seen before.  Henderson took a provisional after finishing fourth in the 2015 NeSmith Late Model National point standings, started 23rd and finished sixth in Justin Williams’ Ditch Witch Special.  Henderson was the Beyea Headers Hard Charger of the Race.

Sunoco Young Guns Challenge Series driver, 13-year-old Tyler Clem of St. Petersburg, FL drove the Vahlco Wheels Rocket to as high as third spot late in the race, but broke a right front shock.  The Young Gun had to hang on to an ill-handing race car to salvage a seventh-place finish.

OCALA, FL – Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL drove the Brandon Ford Special to victory on Saturday in a spectacular Round 3 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout.  The 50-lap race for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series saw a continuation of Friday night’s battle between Bronson and Kid Rocket Josh Richards.

Bronson and Richards raced side-by-side throughout the race and swapped the lead on two occasions.  Bronson led the first ten laps with Richards all over him.  Richards took the lead on lap 11 and led the next 33 laps with Bronson putting on the pressure.  Bronson took Richards over the limit of control on lap 44, as Richards spun the Sallack Well Service Rocket coming off turn four.

Max Blair of Centerville, PA finished second in the R&J Poultry Rocket and Mark Whitener of Middleburg, FL drove the FK Rod Ends Rocket to a third-place finish.  Sunoco Young Guns Challenge Series driver, 13-year-old Tyler Clem took the fourth spot in the Vahlco Wheels Rocket, and Austin Kirkpatrick of Reddick, FL was fifth in the Dave’s Towing Special.

Ivedent Lloyd Jr. of Ocala, FL drove the Ocala Restaurant Supply Special to a sixth-place finish and Brent Barrett of Cleveland, MS finished seventh in the Custom Spraying Inc. GRT.  Richards rallied back from his lap 44 spin to salvage an eighth-place finish.

The RockAuto.com Winter Shootout point leader Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL finished ninth in the Edge’s Company Special.  Edge now holds a 50-point lead over Clem in the point standings.  Tyler Bare of Rockridge Baths, VA rounded out the top ten in the Blue Grass Farm Special.

In preliminary action, Bronson set Fast Time in the Ocala Restaurant Supply Qualifying with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 14.736 seconds.  Ocala Restaurant Supply put a $100 bill in Bronson’s pocket for his efforts.  The four 12-lap B-Main Races were won by Barrett, Lloyd, Kirkpatrick, and Alex Bowman of Seymour, IN in the Bowman Motorsports Special.

On an immaculately prepared race track, the early Saturday show with lots of three and four-wide racing, set the table for the Evening show, the 100-lap $10,000-to-win 11th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series.

OCALA, FL – Josh Richards of Shinnston, WV drove the Sallack Well Service Rocket to his first career NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series win on Friday night at Bubba Raceway Park in Round 2 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout.  Richards picked up the $2,500 win in the 40-lap main event after a hard fought battle with Kyle Bronson of Brandon, FL.

In the last half of the race, Bronson tried both high and low in the Brandon Ford Special to get around Richards for the lead.  On two occasions, Bronson looked like he was going to take the lead after getting alongside Richards, only to have caution flags spoil the effort.

This is only the second time I’ve run a race with a Chevrolet Performance 604 Racing Engine, and it takes a different style of driving that I’m still trying to learn,” Richards said.  “Kyle Bronson and I are both aggressive drivers, and he made me earn this one.  If it wasn’t for Bubba Clem and his track crew, we wouldn’t have had a track to race on tonight.  After all of the rain they’ve had here over the last few days, the track was still pretty wet.”

 After leading the first four laps of the race, Bronson finished second, .755 seconds behind Richards.  Walker Arthur of Forest, VA took the checkered flag in third, but he was disqualified in the post-race technical inspection with unapproved suspension components on his Cecil B. Arthur Beef Farms Special. 

That moved Dennis Franklin of Gaffney, SC up to the third spot in the M&W Transport Special.  Tyler Bare of Rockridge Baths, VA was fourth in the Blue Grass Farm Special, and Justin Williams of Concord, VA drove the Ditch Witch Special to a fifth-place finish.  Keith Nosbisch of Valrico, FL came from the 18th starting spot to finish sixth in the Image Skin Care Rocket.

Logan Robertson of Waynesboro, VA took the seventh spot in the Mike’s Tire and Auto Special, and Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL took over the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout point lead with an eighth-place finish in the Edge’s Gas Company Special.  Edge holds a 30-point lead over William Thomas of Phenix City, AL.

The ninth spot went to Jimmy Mac of Mooresville, NC in the Lake Norman Motors Special.  Sunoco Young Guns Challenge Series driver, 15-year-old Bryan Marsh of Corinth, MS, rounded out the top ten in the Modern Woodmen Trak-Star after starting 22nd.

In preliminary action, Trent Ivey of Union, SC was the fast qualifier among the 53 entrants with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 15.060 seconds driving the Ivey Construction Special.  The four 12-lap B-Main Races were won by Shan Smith of Dade City, FL in the Smith Racing Rocket, Ralph Morgan Jr. of Mount Union, PA in the Morgan’s Excavating Special, Mike Pegher Jr. of Cranberry Township, PA in the Royal Flush, Inc. Rocket, and Ryan Carter of Blackshear, GA in the Mark’s Auto and Collision Special.

The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series returns to Bubba Raceway Park for a Saturday Double-Header.  There will be a Saturday afternoon show featuring Round 3 of the RockAuto.con Winter Shootout with a $3,000-to-win 50-lap main event.  The Saturday night show will be the non-points $10,000-to-win 100-lap 11th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race.

Bubba Raceway Park is located north of Ocala, FL at 9050 N.W. Gainesville Road, Ocala, FL 34482.  For more information call 352-622-9400, or visit the track web site at www.bubbaracewaypark.com and on Facebook at Bubba Raceway Park.

NeSMITH LATE MODEL OPENER
FOR BUBBA’S ARMY WINTERNATIONALS RAINED OUT


OCALA. FL – Rain has washed out the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series opener for the Bubba’s Army Winternationals and Round 2 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout for the NeSmith Late Models tonight at Bubba Raceway Park.  The weather forecast for Friday and Saturday looks good and those races are set to go on as scheduled.

On Friday afternoon, Bubba Raceway Park will host a practice session beginning at 1 p.m. prior to the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series 50-lap $2,500-to-win event.  NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Pre-Race Registration and Technical Inspection will be from 2 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.  The Drivers Meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. with racing to follow.

Drivers that have not yet purchased their Annual Membership and completed their 2016 paperwork are encouraged to be at Registration early in order to complete this and draw for their spot in the qualifying line.

The NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series and Bubba Raceway Park will team up to give race fans a Saturday Double-Header with two big races in one day and night.  The 50-lap $3,000-to-win Round 3 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout will take place on Saturday afternoon.  NeSmith Late Model Pre-Race Registration and Technical Inspection will begin at 11 a.m., with the Drivers Meeting at 1 p.m.  Hot laps are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. with racing at 2 p.m.

At the completion of the daytime race on Saturday, the grandstand will be cleared, and the track reworked for the nighttime show, the rescheduled 11th Annual Chevrolet Performance World Championship Race going for 100 laps and paying $10,000-to-win. 

The NeSmith Late Models will pick up where they left off in November with a pair of B-Main races to fill starting positions 17 through 24 for the main event.  The first 16 starting spots were determined on November 20, 2016 through four Heat Races with the top four finishers in each heat race earning a spot in the big show. 

Bubba Raceway Park is located north of Ocala, FL at 9050 N.W. Gainesville Road, Ocala, FL 34482.  For more information call 352-622-9400, or visit the track web site at www.bubbaracewaypark.com and on Facebook at Bubba Raceway Park.
