Shane Butler Takes T.B.A.R.A. Win at Ocala Speedway

June 9, 2002 - Ocala, Fl - Ocala Speedway fans love sprint
car racing and always look forward to the night when the
T.B.A.R.A. Winged Outlaw Sprints are on the schedule. And,
as usual, they were not disappointed Saturday night when
the racing started. Shane Butler started the feature race
in the 12th position and picked his way to the front of
the field, one position each lap, to take the lead on
Lap 13 and go on to take the win. Matt Mercer started on
the pole and held off a challenge by David Slawiak and
Sonny Hartley before finally losing the position to
Butler. Mercer went on to finish in 2nd place followed
by Keith Butler, Sonny Hartley, and Wayne Reutimann, Jr.

It looked like Troy Robinson was going to take home the
trophy in the Diamond "H" Air and Heat Modified division
feature again this week, but Alan McCafferty had other
plans. Robinson led over half of the race before
McCafferty had other plans. Robinson led over half of
the race before McCafferty passed him and pulled away
from the rest of the field leaving Robinson to contend
with Kelly Lawrence. On the last lap it looked like
Lawrence might get by but Robinson held him off.
McCafferty took the win followed by Robinson, Lawrence,
Aaron Clark and David Baxley.

The finish of the Thirfty Nickel Hobby Stock division
feature ws a disappointing one for David Chastain. After
leading the race for 13 laps, Mark Mitchell and Chauna
Johnston got by him andhe had to settle for a 3rd place
finish. Moose Alderman and John Betts rounded out the
top five finishers.

Chuck Stewart took home the trophy in the WTRS Pure
Stock division leading the race from flag to flag.
The competition behind the leader was tough. Rick Hart
had his hands full with Michael Fiddia and Fiddia was
trying to hold off Paul Fletcher. Fiddia finally passed
Hart on Lap 9 to take the 2nd position. Hart finished
3rd by Fletcher and Darren Dukes.

Ric Fort took home the win in the Coca Cola 4 Cylinder
Bomber division. In a race that was plagued with
cautions, Fort held his own. Bill Brezner finished in
2nd place followed by Marlon Durbin, Joey Durbin and
Dennis Hardin.

Join us this Saturday night, June 15th, when we host
our once a month Ltd. Late Model series plus Sportsman,
