Stuart Wilson Takes Feature in Vintage…
Tuesday, 17 June 2008
(June 14, 2008) Saturday night action at Deep South Speedway
in Loxley was heated up as the Vintage cars saw 12 cars take the green flag for
what would turn out to be a classic show. Stuart Wilson, of Milton, Florida,
was the eventual winner, powering his familiar orange #71 ½ “sawdust” sedan car
to the front of the field after the early leaders had problems. Tom Lohr
driving his #97 sedan tried to rout the smooth sailing of Wilson
several laps, but Wilson never slipped as he
took the checkers for his first win at Deep South
this season. Newcomer Ansel Reed of Pace drove to a third place finish in his
green #98 sedan, while Jody Beech and Billy Boothe followed in 4th
The Super Hobby division saw Greg Tuberville take his red
and yellow #20 to the checkered as the young and upcoming Bradley Rhodes in his
#25 GTO following in a close second. The Super Hobby class started off in hot
laps with fast action as Jeffrey Spann flipped his beautiful #01 Camaro
entering turn 3. Spann said the car bottomed out entering the corner and turned
him into the wall. He made a valiant effort to get the car back under power but
because of missing body panels, tech officials would not allow the car to
re-enter the race. Allan Taylor, multiple race winner at the speedway this
year, ran third with no brakes followed by Randy Darby, Jr. and Travis Bonner.
The Crate late model feature saw only our second repeat
winner of the season when Monte Skinner powered his #00 TNT chassis, Skinner Services,
B2R Graphics sponsored machine around pole sitter Larry Cifra on lap 3 and
never looked back. Skinner had several cautions to deal with and several
challenges from Calvin Cook, Chris Smith, Nathan Ingersall and Ryan Little but
managed to keep the TNT in the groove for his second win of the season. Points
leader Ryan Little drove his blue #97 Camaro from back in the field to post a
last lap challenge for the lead after sliding his car around Cook and Smith
during the double file restarts to post his 6th second place finish
this year! Pace’s Ricky Haugen wrangled a third place finish in his #22G after
starting in the rear of the 14-car field for an impressive run. Pole-sitter
Cifra drove his Warrior #11 to the checkers in 4th with a new motor
he says started losing power during the race. Kenneth Montiel, in his familiar
#007, wound up 5th for the night.
Stinger driver Jamie Mozingo knows the way to victory lane
as he won yet another Stinger feature driving his green #48M machine to yet
another win at the speedway. Gary Watson has beaten Mozingo this season driving
his #48G, but had to settle for another second as Mozingo held his line around
the super speedway. Spanish Fort driver
Angela Hayes drover her #7 stinger to a third place finish in her debut this
season, followed to the stripe by Edward Hall in his 17H machine.
Derrick Johnson won his feature in the Hobby Stock class for
the second race in a row as he powered by Steven Allday through turns 3 and 4
for the lead and then the win. Allday, who had been the leader for most of the
race, said he just entered the turn a little higher than the previous lap,
allowing the #1 Monte Carlo of Johnson enough room to slide by for the lead.
Allday followed in second place and Joseph Adams, wheeling his #22 Monte Carlo into a strong
3rd place finish Saturday night. Adams
had a 2nd place finish two weeks ago and is a hard-charger in the
division. John Boyd in the #32 car had a great heat race win and was fighting
for the feature lead early but had to settle for 4th while Chris
Burger completed the top 5.
Fourteen modified cars started the feature event Saturday
night and another familiar face was in victory circle as Greg Hopkins won on a
slippery track. Hopkins used his smoothness to
coach the Larry Shaw, Hi-Rev Performance #25 machine to victory over a
hard-charging Ron Tubbs from Gulfport.
Tubbs, driving the perfectly prepared Tubbs Marine sponsored Shaw car, powered
through the field to 2nd, catching Hopkins near the end of the feature but could
only show him a wheel through turns 1 and 2. Randy Booker, in his white #26
modified, again saw another impressive run as he fought Hopkins and the track conditions for the
early lead, but faded to finish a respectable third. Michael Booker and Buddy White
rounded out the top 5. Hard luck found Bucky Lane upside down on his lid as he
was passing the spinning car #141 of Justin Galbreath when Galbreath’s car
speared the rear end of Lane’s car and broke the mounts, sending Lane on a wild
trip upside down. Another turn of bad luck earlier in the week at the Thursday
practice saw the #777 car of Buster Foley get totaled in turn 3. He made a
valiant effort to get another car prepared for Saturday night and wound up 11th.
The Limited Sportsman winner is also no stranger to victory
lane as veteran driver Nathan Ingersall
took the K7 Jerry Schoen sponsored car to the stripe ahead of 2nd
place finisher Vic Dolehite of Milton. Chuck Moore of Fairhope brought his
Chuck’s Transmission sponsored Warrior home in third.
The fuel injected Sprint cars, most of who travel to race
their cars, were hampered by the weather and only five Sprint cars were on hand
for the race. Michael Dupee set fast time around the speedway with a 15.316 lap
time. The dash was inverted and Dupee made easy pickings of the field as he
powered his winged sprint to the lead quickly. The track conditions made the
drivers put all their skills to the test in trying to control the speeds and
Dupee slipped in turns 3 and 4 allowing Shane Morgan to slide past and never
look back. Dupee would recover to finish 2nd as Todd Fayard finished
3rd. Casey Hinds and Michael Miller were 4th and 5th.
Injected Sprint Cars Coming to Deep South…
Monday, 02 June 2008
Mark your calendar for June
14, 2008, as the methanol breathing, fuel-injected outlaw Sprint cars will
invade Loxley for a one-night shootout. BKW, Inc., of Pensacola, Florida,
is sponsoring this one-night spectacular race event featuring the hired guns
like Michael Dupee, Todd Fayard, David Kountz, Michael Harrington, Michael Miller, Casey Miller and more.
"These are the top guns in
the Sprint car world,” Mark Joiner stated as he began to plan for the event.
“The fuel-injected cars are capable of running laps around Deep South Speedway
in the 14 second range, with the kind of racing surface Bill Webb and the crew
have been preparing recently.” He added, “The Cajun sprint cars appeared two
weeks ago and were turning laps of 15 seconds flat, and those engines are
carbureted. You will feel these injected cars all the way down to your seat!”
Gate prices will be the same
as a regular race and yet, fans and racers alike will be able to witness some
of the finest sprint car drivers in the country power their 900 horsepower
hotrods around the high banks of Deep South.
Of course, the speedway will also offer the regular slate of race cars, which
have been showcasing some of the best racing action in the Gulf Coast
this season! If you haven’t been to Deep South Speedway yet, you are missing
out on some of the finest racing happening today! Check us out Saturday night,
June 14, 2008, as we feature the Sprint cars and other exciting classes.
Remember, Deep South will NOT be racing June
7, 2008, but will resume the following week.
