Crane Cams V8 StockCar at Sebring

Post by V8stockcar » Wed Feb 05, 2014 10:39 am

This time of year the V8 Series usually kicks of the season with the "winter heat", a pair of races in Florida. With a new format for the series for 2014, which coincides with the Southeast Division SCCA SARRC races, the series is already under way. Still, for many of our regulars, Sebring on February 8 & 9 will be their first race of the year.
A good field of around thirty is expected on the famed 12 hour course including former GT-2 champ Nick Hazelwood in the RP Paving Solutions GT-1 Corvette, Willie Mullins in the Crow Wing Recycling/Bugsy's Automotive Ford Fusion, Babe Branscombe in his ex Spirit of Daytona Corvette, Jeff Hinkle in the Hinkle Motorsports ex Penske Racing Dodge Charger, Squeak Kennedy in the Bemco Camaro, Ron Stanley in the Stanley Racing Dodge, Mike Kern in the DEI/Outerwears GT-1 Camaro, Ray Webb in the Kenco Signs Dodge and more.

In GT-1 look for Hazelwood to not only take the top spot but challenge the V8 Series track record for the track. Mike Kern and Ray Webb will likely battle closely as they have in the past.

SPO, with about a dozen entry's, should be a shoot-out. Look for Babe Branscombe in the # 38 Corvette to lead the class into turn one. However, Squeak Kennedy in the very quick Bemco Camaro, Willie Mullins in his Ford Fusion, Ron Stanley in his ex Nascar cup Dodge and Jeff Hinkle in his similar Dodge will have plenty to say about the outcome.

In GTA, Vern Smith, Larry Corwin, Chad Jorgensen and Hall Robertson have shown similar speed on the circuit and it will be a toss up who might prevail. All bets are off though if Friday testing goes well for Bobby Kennedy in a Bemco GTA late model Monte Carlo. Kennedy one of the brightest young stars in club racing is a terror in anything he sits in.

For overall honors look for Hazelwood in his Hammer Magnum Racing prepared Weaver chassis Corvette to battle Branscombe. Branscombe is a veteran of the Sebring circuit and his SPO classed C5 has surprised more than a few GT-1 cars in past years.

The V8 Series wishes to thank Crane Cams for returning for the third straight year as the title sponsor.
