Successful Allen Turner Pro Late Model Series returns to action at 5 Flags this Friday

By Tim Bryant, 5 Flags Media

The all new “Allen Turner Pro Late Model Series” has turned into everything and more, 5 Flags Speedway and area Race Fans had hoped for. Drawing in some of the best Pro Late Model racers in the region, this Series has quickly developed a reputation for providing some of the closest competition seen anywhere. Friday night’s Hyundai Tucson 100 is race #3 in the Allen Turner Series, and is shaping up to be the best yet. Georgia hot shoe Bubba Pollard, fresh off a Pro All Stars Series win last weekend at Gresham Motorsports Park, comes into this weekend’s event with just a 3 point lead over Houston Texas Driver Brandan Bendele. Another Georgia driver, Dwayne Buggay, is just 12 points out of the lead. Defending Track Champion D.J. VanderLey is currently in 4th position, testament to the level of competition going on this year.

Also on Friday Night’s race program will be the Super Stocks, Sportsman, and the Bomber Division. Mississippi driver Shannon Jackson holds just a 6 point lead over Pensacola newlywed Bubba Winslow in the Super Stock Division, while the Sportsman class has Brannon Fowler leading the Top Gun standings. A bit of a shake-up took place in the Bomber standings after the last event, with Milton driver Brandon Burks emerging as the leader over Gary Goodwin.

The drama continues to build as the 2011 Season is now past the halfway point. As mentioned, there are some serious Championship battles ongoing. But that’s not all. Driver’s are already programming their preparations for the 44th Annual Snowball Derby, coming the first weekend of December. And speaking of the Snowball, remember that August 1st is the deadline to renew your Derby tickets. After a 2 week period for processing upgrade requests, tickets will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, August 17th.

The first half of the 2011 season has provided some memorable moments at 5 Flags Speedway. But we believe the best is yet to come, starting with this Friday Night’s Allen Turner Hyundai Tucson 100. We hope you can join us at “America’s Favorite Home Track”!!

Gilbertson overcomes adversities to win TBARA sprint feature at 5 Flags

By Chuck Corder

The deck was stacked against Johnny Gilbertson.

His long days led to longer nights at his Central Florida home getting his winged sprint car ready for Friday at Five Flags Speedway.

Once, Gilbertson reached Pensacola his problems continued with a backup car that a teammate drove.

Gilbertson, though, erased all the nightmares with a wire-to-wire victory in the Tampa Bay Area Racing Association winged sprints 30-lap feature.

The race, which featured a pair of cautions, was wrapped up in 16 minutes, 34 seconds. That is moving.

“We almost didn’t come,” the 35 year old said. “We near about pulled the plug because it was raining so bad down there and we heard there was a 70 percent up here tonight.

I’m glad we came.”

It certainly was the understatement of the night.

Gilbertson held on, impressively, when it looked like he was destined to surrender his lead late in the race.

Sprints legend Dave Steele was providing serious pressure, but with five laps to go he lost a cylinder and finished a disappointing 11th out of the 17-car field.

It was just what Gilbertson, a three-time dirt winged sprint champion, needed to coast home for his first pavement victory.

“I thought I was a sitting duck,” Gilbertson admitted. “I was so nervous. I feel like racing against (Steele) means you’ve beat the best. I would’ve liked the opportunity, but trust me that day will come.”

He’ll enjoy this day for a while.

Gilbertson started on the pole after fast qualifier Todd Fayard set the field with a dice roll that netted a eight-car invert.

None of the sprints broke 14 seconds, as they had done last March when Brian Gingras set the track record of 13.885 seconds.

Fayard came the closest, though, turning a 14.077-second lap.

The concession stands were not a popular place when the winged sprint cars torched the half-mile asphalt oval.

Gilbertson built a sizable lead from the outset until the first caution came out with 10 laps complete.

Steele turned on the afterburners, and was on the bumper of Shane Butler for second.

Gilbertson still led, but it was not comfortable any longer.

Butler started second and eventually finished second, but that wasn’t before he had a couple good looks at the lead.

Butler, the defending TBARA champion and current points leader this season, also continued to have some wonderful passing sequences with Steele for the second spot.

“I think we had (Gilbertson) passed,” Butler said. “I could see him working his tires pretty hard. I have a first and second this season. I have no complaints.”

The overflowing crowd had nothing to whine about either.

Winged Sprints 30-Lap Feature Results – 1. Johnny Gilbertson, 2. Shane Butler, 3. Keith Butler, 4. Troy DeCaire, 5.Todd Fayard, 6. Mark Gimmler, 7. Stan Butler, 8. Johnny Gilbert, 9.

Sportsmen

Steve Buttrick readily confesses he doesn’t do much to his No. 33 sportsmen.

It’s easy to see why.

Buttrick, the defending track series champion, won for the fourth time this season.

The Cantonment driver started on the pole after Brannon Fowler set an eight-car invert for the 19-car field.

“If Brannon cannot roll an eight, we might have a different finish up here,” Buttrick joked. “I didn’t mean to get into him over there in the corner.”

Fowler finished third to maintain his lead in the points race after several series contenders had lots of trouble.

Jim Pokrant was one of those. He finished 11th and was on pit row late in the race because of a wreck he sustained with Marty White.

Michael Couture, 10. Daniel Fleming, 11. Jim Pokrant, 12. Randy Thompson, 13. Marty White, 14 Justin Babb, 15. Wayne Burkett

Bombers

Curtis Faircloth proved Friday he can win from anywhere on the track.

The series points leader jumped the opening green flag and was pushed to the tail end of the 15-car field.

That didn’t stop him from maneuvering back up front and claim his sixth victory of the season.

“I don’t know what happen at the start of race,” Faircloth said. “I thought I saw everybody go, and they put me in the back for whatever reason. But we didn’t let that stop us.”

What did stop Faircloth, though, came in post-race technical inspection when another driver put in a $1,000 claim on Faircloth’s motor.

Faircloth refused to surrender it and received an immediate disqualification for the evening, forfeiting the victory.

That pushed Brandon Burks to the win, Gary Goodwin to second and Tracy Soles to third.

Faircloth and Burks put on a great show for the last half of the race after the first 10 laps were bogged down by caution. Burks led for a number of laps before finally yielding to Faircloth on the final restart.

Burks was great in the middle of turn Nos. 3 and 4 while Faircloth was picture-perfect on the straightaways.

“Well that was fun,” said Burks, who sits second in points. “I thought we were gonna win one, but Curtis has such a fast car. To get where he’s at, though, it’s amazing.”

Bombers 20-Lap Feature Results – 1. Brandon Burks, 2. Gary Goodwin, 3. Tracy Soles, 4. Sam Mellema, 5. Robert Balkum, 6. Courtney Rodrigues, 7. James Beal III, 8. Kenny Bullard, 9. Leonard Craig Jr., 10. Gary Burkett, 11. Thom Crosslin, 12. Brandin Sidner, 13. Hunter Ward, 14. Kenny Williams, DQ. Curtis Faircloth

Winged sprint cars fly at 5 Flags Speedway

From Tim Bryant

The second half of season gets off to Fast start!! Literally. What a way to kick off the second half of the season than with the fastest cars you’ll ever see on the half mile oval. The Winged Sprint Cars from the TBARA will roll into town to headline this Friday’s racing action. The Tampa Bay Area Racing Association has been providing fans with great racing since 1973. A stellar field of cars are expected for this week’s trip to the Gulf Coast, with doubleheader action both Friday night here at 5 Flags, and on Saturday night at Mobile International Speedway. Points leader Shane Butler will lead the brigade, along with Sprint Car legend Dave Steele, Gulfport Mississippi’s Todd Fayard, and a slew of others. Track Records are on the line, so be sure to arrive early to catch time trials.

Along with Friday’s Sprint Car action, the Sportsman and Bombers will have a full program of heat and feature events, and the Super Stocks will partake in a special non points Black Flag Race. And to make the night a totally rewarding experience, it’s our Annual “Meet the Driver’s Night”, an event met with great reviews year after year. At the conclusion of Time Trials on Friday, all the cars, in all the divisions will be lined up on the front straightaway. Race Fans will be allowed to go down on the track to meet the drivers up close and personal. Fans can expect autograph cards and many other items of interest to be provided by their favorite drivers. It should be a lot of fun so again, plan to arrive early.

The points races have tightened up in every division, so, hang on as we head towards our respective Season Championship races. You don’t want to miss a single lap of the action. It will keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s why 5 Flags Speedway has come to be known as “AMERICA’S FAVORITE HOME TRACK!!

Hard to believe it is midseason at 5 Flags

From Tim Bryant

It’s hard to believe that Friday Night’s Print Now 100 will actually be the half way point in the 2011 Racing Season here at 5 Flags Speedway.

With a limited number of events on the schedule, it seems only appropriate that each one has special meaning. This week’s Blizzard Series Race #3 has several interesting storylines, one of which is the Race Sponsor itself.

Deborah Holland and her husband John, have been longtime supporters of 5 Flags Speedway and it’s events, mostly thru their USA Digital branding.

Still affiliated with the Sprint Wireless brand, Deborah has expanded along with business partner Kim Franklin, and now own and operate Print Now, a full service printing, graphics, and specialty advertising store.

As part of Friday Night’s race promotion, Deborah and Kim will be handing out special 3D glasses to the first 1000 fans thru the gate, guaranteeing to make viewing our gigantic Fireworks show even more spectacular.

Special Thanks to these special people.

What a night of racing for 5 Flag fans as Bubba Pollard wins Sonata 100

Everyone in the pits sensed it was coming.

Everyone in the Five Flags Speedway grandstands felt it, too.

Round 2 of the all new Allen Turner Series for the Pro Late Models headlines the night at 5 Flags with the running of the Sonata 100

From Tim Bryant

The Pensacola area has finally received some much needed rain to cool things off a bit, but the action will be scorching hot when racing returns to 5 Flags Speedway this Friday Night. Round 2 of the all new Allen Turner Series for the Pro Late Models will headline the night, with the running of the Sonata 100. The first of the newly formatted Pro Late Model events was held on April 22nd, and what a race it was. Montgomery Alabama driver Hunter Robbins emerged as the victor, over Texas standout Brandon Bendele, and Georgia hotshoe Dwayne Buggay. These three will be back this Friday, as will a host of other top competitors including defending 5 Flags Champ D.J. VanderLey, Super Late Model standouts Augie Grill and Bubba Pollard, April 22nd‘s polesitter Thomas Praytor, Pensacola drivers Logan Boyett, Eddie Craig, Shana Ard and a host of others.

In addition to Friday Nights PLM action, there’s plenty more in store with Super Stocks, Sportsman, and Bombers all taking to the high banked oval. Shannon Jackson currently sits atop the Top Gun standings for the Super Stock Division, but has only a slim 12 point lead over Bubba Winslow. And who would be sitting on the point of the highly competitive Sportsman Division? None other than Marty White in his 102.7 Chevrolet. The Sportsman guys have put on incredible racing this season and the standings are the closest of any Division. And ole Curtis Faircloth found his way back to victory lane in the most recent Bomber Feature, once again establishing himself as the driver to beat. But you know, the more you win, the more guys want to beat you, so, look out Curtis.

As if all this wasn’t enough action for Friday Night, it also serves as the night the kids look forward to the most. The Annual 5 Flags Speedway Kid’s Bike races, presented by Tracy Goodson’s Beef O’ Bradys, Panhandle Motorsports, Buggy Worx Golf Carts, and Fast Eddie’s Fun Center. There will be 4 age groups of riders, and every kid will be a Winner, receiving a trophy, and an ice cream, as well as coupons to Fast Eddies. This is genuinely one of the most gratifying events to watch of the entire season. Bike race info can attained by calling the track at 850-944-8400.

Grill wins Papa John’s 100 at 5 Flags Speedway

By Chuck Corder

Augie Grill is quite the company man.

His Grand American Race Cars had dominated the last 10 Super Late Model events coming into the second Blizzard Series race Friday at Five Flags Speedway.

Nothing changed for the Papa John’s 100. And it only got better for Grill.

The Five Flags fan favorite held off a late charge from Grant Enfinger to snatch his first checkered flag in Pensacola this season, making it nine consecutive Blizzard wins for cars coming out of the GARC shop.

The father-daughter battle between Donald Long and NASCAR trucks rookie Johanna Long never materialized.

The pair did battle each other several times, but it was in the middle of the pack, never contesting for the lead at any point. Johanna Long finished ninth while her 48-year-old father finished 11th.

“It feels really good to outrun one of my customers,” said Grill, referring to Enfinger. “It’s one of the tracks we race a lot at, so I better be good or I’ll lose my ride.”

Grill, of course, was joking. The way the two-time Snowball Derby winner drives his No. 112, he is in no danger of surrendering his seat.

Grill was terrific on each of the five restarts he led of the six cautions Friday. The one restart he struggled was when he trailed Donnie Wilson for the lead on Lap 59.

Grill spun his tires, but by the time the leaders reached Turn 4, he had forced a three-wide scenario with Wilson and T.J. Reaid. Grill, the meat in the sandwich, put the hammer down and assumed a lead he never relinquished as they completed 60 laps.

“I about knocked the nose off with all the bumping that was going on, so I decided to go,” Grill said.

Grill started the feature ninth, but methodically began picking off fellow drivers one by one until he made that aggressive move.

Enfinger, who was the fast car in qualifying but started 10th on the dice invert, failed to get by Grill after getting a couple of quality looks.

“If we could’ve nailed the restarts,” he surmised, “I think we could’ve got in front of (Grill) and held him off. We tried to go at the end, but it was a little too late.”

Enfinger’s best look came on the restart with 83 laps complete. Grill chose the inside as he did all night. Enfinger got nose to nose until T.J. Reaid bumped him.

The pair slid all over the track, but amazingly managed to not crash. It cost Enfinger valuable position and he never got back to Grill’s bumper.

That’s when the action after the action got interesting.

Enfinger visibly was upset with Reaid, who finished third. As the top three got out to accept their trophies, Enfinger jumped out of his No. 82 and darted for Kyle Busch’s No. 51 Reaid drives.

Enfinger put his finger inside the window while his and Reaid’s crews started pushing and shoving until local sheriff deputies separated the groups.

“I’m not one to say anything, but if I get somebody out of shape, I let them straighten out,” Enfinger said. “He did it three times, and I didn’t appreciate it.”

Neither did the car’s maker.

Grill wasn’t fazed too much by the post-race extracurriculars, though.

He was busy appreciating his win.

Travis Kittleson, 22. Dwayne Buggay

Modifieds

Jake Moore was content to see all the beating and banging happening in his rearview.

With plenty of action behind him, Moore just cruised around the half-mile asphalt oval like it was a Sunday drive on the Gulf Coast.

The Mobile native got his first win in the Modified series while Bubba Pollard and Brandon Howell finished second and third respectively.

Pollard and Gerald Wilkerson took a couple of shots at each other until Pollard spun Wilkerson on the back straightaway.

“Gerald cut us off front straightaway and nearly pushed us into the inside wall, but we let up,” Pollard said. “He got sideways on the back, and I got into him. I couldn’t help it.”

Sportsman

Stevie Mercer thought about retiring before this season.

Good thing he didn’t. Mercer made it two trips to Victory Lanes in two straight Fridays, running another dominant race once again from the front row.

However, he was stripped of the win in post-race technical inspection, pushing Randy Thompson to the win.

“I love starting on the front row,” Mercer said. “It happened last week and worked out well. I like racing, too. I’m sure this year we’ll trade some paint.”

He didn’t have to worry about that too much this Friday. Thompson challenged him a few times after a pair of cautions.

Thompson tried to go the long way around and the outside groove wasn’t kind. It worked for a while before Thompson burned the tires off.

Each time, Mercer had an answer for Thompson and pulled away.

“I’m out here to win every race I can,” Mercer said. “Hopefully the car can stay together, the driver stay together and we’ll have a good year.”

A disqualification, though, is sure to put a damper on things.

Bombers

Curtis Faircloth certainly was all smiles Friday at Five Flags.

But the Pace driver knew he got a lot of help to get his fourth win in five races this season.

“This would not have been possible without Leonard Craig Jr.,” said Faircloth, who extended his points lead with another trip to Victory Lane. “We blew a motor and he helped us out so much.”

Brandon Burks finished second, but, like all the Bombers this year, he was admiring another dominant performance from Faircloth.

“That (No.) 7 car sure is fast,” Burks said.
