Bubak Blasts to Victory Lane in Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals Opener!

Lonnie Wheatley, BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 3, 2018) – Arvada, Colorado’s Jake Bubak proved to be the class of the field on Friday night as the Untied Rebel Sprint Series-sanctioned Inaugural Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals kicked off atop the ½-mile Belleville High Banks clay oval.

Bubak gunned into the lead at the outset from the front row outside and led the high-speed URSS affair all the way in the 20-lapper to take the preliminary feature winner’s share of $2,500 aboard the Coyote Candle Company No. 74b over a field of 49 entries, setting the stage for Saturday night’s $7,000-to-win Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals championship finale.

Liberal, Kansas shoe Steven Richardson earned the pole position for the main event by racking up the most points through heat and qualifying race action, but it was front row mate Bubak pouncing on the lead as the green flag flew.

Weathering the race’s lone caution after five laps for Kaleb Johnson’s disabled mount in turn two, Bubak slipped away from his chasers on the restart and then ripped through lapped traffic in precise manner over the final eight circuits to secure the win.

In his wake, Lincoln, Nebraska resident by way of Liberal, Jason Martin, battled into the runner-up position just ahead of Oklahoma City’s Andy Shouse.  Richardson crossed the stripe in fourth with Ness City, KS, racer Luke Cranston rounding out the top five.

Fort Worth’s Kevin Ramey crossed the stripe in sixth with Lorne Wofford of Alamogordo, NM, in seventh.  Denison, TX, rep Christian Kinnison turned in the feature’s top passing performance by rallying from 17th to eighth with Nebraska’s Stu Snyder and Texas’ Dalton Stevens completing the top ten.

Ray Seemann, Buddy Tubbs, Martin, Shouse, Zach Blurton and Stevens topped heat race action with Bubak, Patrick Bourke, Wes Wofford and Lorne Wofford winning the qualifying races.  Kinnison and Kyle McCutcheon topped the twin 12-lap “B” Mains.

The Inaugural Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals wraps up with Saturday night’s $7,000-to-win tilt getting under way at 7:30 p.m.
