Bubak Shines Again in Belleville 305 Nationals Preliminary

by Lonnie Wheatley

BELLEVILLE, Kan. (August 2, 2019) – Jake Bubak continues to find the Belleville High Banks to his liking.

That was evident with his $2,500 triumph in Friday night’s United Rebel Sprint Series-sanctioned Second Annual Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals preliminary atop the lightning-fast half-mile clay oval aboard the Coyote Candle Company No. 74b entry.

It marked the Arvada, Colorado racer’s fourth consecutive score atop the High Banks including a sweep of last year’s Inaugural edition of the Belleville 305 Sprint Car Nationals.

After earning the pole position for the feature, Bubak had his hands full throughout with Jason Martin pushing him to the limit.

In fact, Martin gunned into the lead from the front row outside upon the drop of the green flag and paced the initial four laps before Bubak battled by on the top side.  Bubak began to slip away from Martin’s grasp after several laps and encountered traffic on the 12th round just as a caution flew for Craig Dollansky, who slowed just three laps after taking third away from Jed Werner.

Martin made a bid for the lead on the restart with the duo side-by-side for nearly a lap before Bubak reestablished command.  The same scenario played out again four laps later when a final caution flew for Luke Cranston’s stalled mount.

Bubak fought off Martin over the closing circuits with Arkansas’ filling out the podium in third. Werner was fourth with J.D. Johnson rounding out the top five.  Ty Williams advanced a half-dozen positions to claim sixth with Tyler Drueke turning in the night’s top passing performance by rallying from 18th to seventh.  Joe Wood, Jr., was eighth with Zach Blurton and Brett Becker completing the top ten.

Cranston, Bubak, Martin, Werner and Andy Shouse topped heat race action for the 41-car field with Dollansky, Bubak, Williams and Buddy Tubbs victorious in the qualifying races.  Todd Plemons and Drueke bested the twin “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.
