Huish Holds Off Bubak for First Career URSS Victory!


Hays, Kansas – July 13, 2019 – Jeremy Huish passed race long leader Ty Williams just past the races' midway point, then held off a late race charge from Jake Bubak to claim his first-career Lucas Oil POWRi United Rebel Sprint Series presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing as the tour opened the 11th annual Wheatshocker Nationals at Rolling Plains Motor Speedway in Hays, Kansas on Saturday night.

Jeremy Huish and Ty Williams started on the front row for the twenty-five-lap feature with Williams taking the lead as the green flag fell. Huish, Koby Walters, Jack Potter and Zach Blurton were the top five after the first lap was complete with Williams controlling the front running position.

Williams kept the point the first fourteen laps before encountering slower cars, allowing Huish to close the gap. While working lapping the slower cars, Huish made his move and powered past the Edmond, Oklahoma driver to take the lead on lap fifteen.

The first and only caution of the race fell on lap sixteen when Steven Richardson slowed and came to a stop with a blown motor.   

On the final restart it was Huish, Williams, Walters, Bubak, and Potter the top five with Huish getting a jump on the rest of the field with Williams giving chase. The restart allowed Bubak to close in on the leaders and the series leading race winner on the 2019 race season disposed of Walters for the third position and within striking distance of the two front runners. With four laps to go, Bubak would pass Williams for the runner-up position and set his sights on the leader.  click here for the full story and results

Three Time URSS Champ Bubak Finishes off Perfect Lubbock Wrecker Service

DCRP 305 Nationals – Banks $6,300 for the Weekend

Lonnie Wheatley, DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 15, 2019) – The Lubbock Wrecker Service DCRP 305 Sprint Car Nationals turned out to be a lucrative venture for three time URSS Champion Arvada, Colorado’s Jake Bubak and the Dubose/Wells-powered Coyote Candle Company No. 74b Maxim Sprint Car team.

After topping both the Thursday and Friday preliminary features, Bubak topped the Triple 8 Trucking Dash for Cash to earn the pole position for Saturday night’s 30-lap championship feature atop the Dodge City Raceway Park clay oval and then led every lap to run his weekend winnings to $6,300 including $1,500 in lap money and the $3,000 feature winner’s share.

It wasn’t as easy as it may sound though, as Liberal native and current Nebraska resident Jason Martin kept the pressure on throughout and briefly slid past Bubak on a pair of occasions only to have the latter successfully counter the move. 

Martin first slid past Bubak in turn four momentarily after a lao four restart and then repeated the move in traffic on the 17th circuit.  Bubak successfully navigated past a pair of lapped cars and then found open track once again when a final caution with a dozen laps remaining.
