Bubba Army Winternationals Results
from Bubba Raceway Park
11, 2018) The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series took
the #2 team a couple of hours north overnight to Bubba Raceway Park
in Ocala, Florida for a single-day shootout. The 'Bubba Army Winternationals'
drew 37 entrants to the egg-shaped racetrack to vie for a $10,000
top prize. Doug Drown stopped the clock fourteenth fastest in Group
A during the time trial session before grabbing the fourth and final
transfer spot through his heat race. After starting the 50-lap headliner
from the inside of the eighth row, Doug eventually wound up fourteenth
in the final finishing order of the caution-plagued race.
Winternationals Nightly Results from
East Bay Raceway Park
10, 2018) The action-packed 'Winternationals' wrapped
up tonight in the Tampa area at East Bay Raceway Park with a $12,000
to win grand finale. The Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series once again
presided over the dirt-slinging competition, which drew 52 Super
Late Model entrants to the Gibsonton, Florida oval. Doug Drown and
the #2 team was much better tonight, as they finished fifth in his
stacked heat race, third in his B-Main, and second in the Strawberry
Dash. Those efforts narrowly kept Doug out of the 60-lapper, which
was eventually captured by Kyle Bronson.

The penultimate event of the 42nd Annual 'Winternationals' greeted
a large crowd tonight at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida.
A star-studded 54 car field converged at the "Clay by the Bay"
for the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series points-paying show, which
also carried a $10,000 paycheck. Doug Drown, again aboard the #2
machine for Ernie Norton, ran sixth in his heat race, tenth in his
B-Main, and seventh in the Strawberry Dash for non-qualifiers. Unfortunately,
Doug was unable to transfer into the 50-lap feature that was won
by Jonathan Davenport.

Night four of the wildly-entertaining 'Winternationals' was on tap
tonight at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton, Florida and Doug
Drown and Ernie Norton's #2 team had their sights solely set on
capturing the $7,000 winner's check. Doug knocked down the twenty-first
quickest time in Group A during Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
qualifying and later finished sixth in both his heat race and his
B-Main. The Wooster, Ohio native then climbed to second in the Strawberry
Dash for non-qualifiers, which left him one spot out of a coveted
transfer position into the 40-lap main event that was eventually
won by Brandon Sheppard.

In a last minute decision, Doug Drown was tabbed to drive Ocala,
Florida native Ernie Norton's Longhorn racecar in the remainder
of the 'Winternationals' at East Bay Raceway Park in Gibsonton,
Florida. Showing up for tonight's $7,000 to win Lucas Oil Late Model
Dirt Series showdown at the "Clay by the Bay," Doug laid
down the nineteenth quickest time in Group A in his season opener.
The Wooster, Ohio ace then fell victim to fuel pump issues and was
forced to scratch from the remainder of the program and unfortunately
did not compete in the 40-lap feature, which was won by Brandon
