OCALA, Fla. — Ronny Lee Hollingsworth returned to familiar ground Friday night at Bubba Raceway Park as he pulled his Sparks Motorsports Special into victory lane for the third time in four nights after winning the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series Rock Auto.com Speedweeks presented By Racecar Engineering 40-lap feature.
Hollingsworth started fifth and worked his way to the front of the pack to take the lead on the sixth lap. “Right Foot” Ronny then held off a late race challenge from Jonathan Davenport to take the $2,000 victory.
“We’ve been good here since we unloaded for practice on Monday, and tonight we just tried to stay out of trouble in the early laps,” Hollingsworth said. “Once we took the lead we were committed to the bottom of the race track. I got into Davenport one time, and I apologize for that, but I guess that’s just part of racing trying to hold your ground.”
Davenport took the second spot in the AES Racing Special for his best finish in four nights. Ronnie Johnson finished third for the second straight night.
Tait Davenport claimed the fourth with Ivedent Lloyd Jr. racing from 17th to fifth.
