Danny Holtgraver and Brandon Matus each participated in action last night at Bubba Raceway Park in Ocala, Florida with the All-Star Circuit of Champions. The Fully Injected teammates qualified for the All-Star, 30 lap main event worth $4,000, but along the way suffered from some misfortune and inexperience.
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native – Danny Holtgraver – was in the a hunt for a top five finish last night in the 30 lap main event- until the car suffered from a dose of mechanical misfortune. The rear-end broke forcing the Kargo Quality Cars and Trucks D4 to retire from the event. Holtgraver was scored 19th. He finished third in his respective heat race and qualified 8th out of the 26 entries.
Brandon Matus had to do it the ‘hard way’ last night – coming through the the All-Star Circuit of Champions B-main to qualify for the evening’s feature event, after not transferring through his respective heat race. Starting in the back of the field is always tough at Bubba Raceway Park; the Wampum, PA native would be scored 21st.
Tonight- the All-Stars will be back in action at Bubba Raceway Park. Tonight’s event will also pay $4,000 to the winner!

Gregg Satterlee spent his Thursday evening at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Florida with the World of Outlaws Late Model Series. The Rochester Mills, Pennsylvania native started out the evening on a positive note – qualifying 11th fastest out of the 70+ car field! From then on, things seemed to ‘flop.’
The Fully Injected member started on the outside of row number one in his respective heat race – but failed to qualify for the 50 lap/ $10,000 to win A-main event. Satterlee went on to start his consolation B-main – but pulled off before the event was finished; resulting in not making the evening’s feature.
Volusia will hold two full shows this afternoon and evening for the UMP super late models. UMP sanctioned action was cancelled on Wednesday evening- forcing officials to conduct two full shows today: Friday, Feb 24th. The World of Outlaws Late Model Series will return to action on Saturday evening with their Florida finale at the DIRTcar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park.
