Ingram Hot in Auburndale Late Model Action

Auburndale, FL - Kevin Ingram dominated the 25 lap Late Model Sportsman feature action Saturday night at Auburndale Speedway. Ingram crossed the stripe nearly a full straight ahead of a torrid second place battle involving five cars. Billy Jones staked claim to the second spot on the final lap as Bud Bronson’s Monte Carlo fell off the pace on the back stretch. Ray Cuzzone and Harold Cannon would shuffle Bronson back to the fifth position before Bronson could get back to start-finish, however point leader Howard O’Steen could not capitalize on Bronson’s misfortune and settled for sixth. The tight points battle changed only slightly as the top three in points finished sixth through eighth with only a two point spread earned between each spot. Denny Myers Jr. romped to victory in Figure Eight action. The Mustang Gang was able to deny Rockin’ Rodney Davis a win for the second straight visit to the quarter mile. A couple of close calls in the infield crossover thrilled the fans. Jim McPeak got tangled in traffic and spun then Mark Thomas narrowly avoided a cross-over collision only to find the nose of his Mustang sliding into the concrete wall on the front stretch. Thomas was not injured however his pony was out for the remainder of the night. Completing the top five were Danny Hamilton, Denny Myers Sr., J.R. Myers and Rob Wilson. Bud Bronson was able to get by early leader Travis Roland in the Street Stock feature. Roland would drop back to sixth by the finish. Larry Chumney, Michael King, Ron Abney Jr. And Robert Hight gave chase but no-one could catch Bronson by the end of 25 lap grind. Chuck Steele had the right front tire go flat on a lap 11 restart which stacked traffic up behind him. Scott Yutzy, Ed Hill and Tim Roark would tangle on the front-stretch trying to get past Steele's struggling machine. Yutzy suffered extensive damage to the right rear of his car and went to the pits for repairs. Yutzy rejoined the race several laps down however parked the car two laps later. Tim Roark's car was airborne briefly as it thundered through the crash but was able to continue. Modified Mini Stock action saw Eugene Davidson redeem his misfortune of the previous week by winning the 25 lap event. Davidson jumped out to an early lead and held on to the finish with second place pointman Randy Storer in pursuit. Bobby Judah, Don Ezell and Lee Davis rounded out the top five. Daniel Sasnett took the win in V8 Pure Stock and Wayne Weaver won the 4 Cylinder Pure Stock feature. Racing next Saturday night May 17th highlights Sky Lungston jumping 12 cars across the infield along with Late Model Sportsman, Street Stocks, Mini Stock, and Pure Stock racing action. Grandstand gates open at 5 and racing gets underway at 7:10 PM.
