"The voice at the Bay"

Current PointS Leader Becca Monopoli racing Steve Darvalic who is second in points. Steve has some Sprint car experience on the dirt as well as some of the others that will be on hand on July 12th




Johnny T. Crowder , "The Flyin Striper" "The Wizard mechanic" or  The president of the Florida mini sprint Association take your pick they all fit this Summerfield , Florida "Guru of Green" who once owned his own  Kawaski dealership and always manages to have lime green on something whether it be his mini sprint or his old antique truck and wife bobbi supports this green brigade and her driver as she is listed as the owner of this now racing fleet.

A visit to the Crowder racing stable and one will find at least four minisprints a half dozen  racing go karts  , boats , helicopters and airplanes , many "project vehicles" and a herd of goats along with two dogs and I'm sure i forgot something.

John recently took over the reign of president of the fMSA after former president jesse Teed felt he couldn't run the series properly being a single dad raising two boys and a business found him burning the candle at both ends and jesse felt  johnny was the best man for the job.

johnny was quick to appoint Bob toney as vice president a fair and devoted man just like crowder and for the rest of 2014 John and bob along with all the members will do what needs to be done  to assure that the series continues to grow.

At the end of 2014 nominations will be held if  new officers are wished but Crowder hopes that what is accomplished for the rest of 2014 will convince everyone to resume as normal and keep everyone in place.

Johnny started his career racing motorcycles but quickly found Sprint cars to his liking through Ed otto and his florida Sprint car group then one night took in the FMSA and was hooked and his devotion to keep the club just that is apparent as he has some plans along with the help of key members for the rest of the year involving some races at "The Bullring" marion County Speedway in a "Ironman Series" honoring the late Eddie moss Sr. and making plans for a 2014 banquet somewhere whether it be at Old town as in past years or even if he has to hold it at the Summerfield resort named "The crowder hacienda" he'll make sure that  a beat isn't missed.

​John is insistent that if members unite and work together that 2014 will go down as a banner year in the Florida mini Sprint Association.


Rains before feature events finishes night.

The temps were hot but the racing was bound to be hotter as a full card of Top Gun Sprints , Limited late models , hobby stocks and V8 Thunder stocks had finished their hotly contested heats and just before some intermission track preparations had been finished the skies opened washing out the remainder of the show.

In  the  Florida mini Sprint Association's  venue 14 cars qualified in two heats with deltona , florida's russ hieder #86 besting Eddie moss #8 with two laps to go and winning with a powerful Plo-powered performance engine just installed it looked as though russ was going to be a factor come A-Main time.

Heat two saw Lithia , florida's Robby hoffmann #12 lead from start to finish but the big battle was between Rhea lynne moss #23 of Deland, Florida and Sheldon kinser Jr. #2 JR.  of Inverness , florida and the two put on a two lap seminar on side by side racing with the "young miss" Rhea

lynne showing Kinser she wasn't going to give him any edge finishing second.

It was bound to be one whale of a feature as  current points leader hoffmann was to start at the rear of the field having to try and work past the mosses , kinser ,  Hieder , Connor Borah  #29 and Robbie Smith #77.

One can only wonder what may have been now.

until  the next FMSA points show  September  20th these questions may be answered.

Don't forget September 13th starts a six  race series "Iron man challenge " event  in honor of Eddie moss Sr. at Marion county Speedway "The Bullring" for the FMSA a regular season non-points show however there will be a champion crowned at the  end of the "Ironman Challenge" using the best four out of six races entered. For more details contact Johnny Crowder or John Moss.

Last week I made mention of a "New guard" coming into the ranks of the Florida Mini Sprint Association and in the pits Saturday night at Bubba Raceway park waiting for the night to begin i couldn't help but get a wide grin across my face as two of the "new guard" Rhea Moss and paige moss were going to each pit handing out flyers on the up coming "Iron Man challenge" at Marion county Speedway.

Doing a masterful job of explaining to drivers about the race to honor their grandfather Eddie moss Sr. who past away a year ago.

A six race series during the months of September , October and November to crown an inaugural champ of what will more than likely be an annual event.

While there are many more players in pulling off this event the biggest being Atlantic powder coating and Harold matthews who is a big sponsor of the series , folks like  John Moss son of Moss Sr.  , Kahl motorsports who have a couple of the "new guard" on their "Shake and Bake" team and the Smith family owners and competitors with "The Ocala Rocket" Robbie Smith are playing a big part in helping make this event successful.

"New Guard" competitor Chase cabre is donating his talents with his Geared Up Productions with neat looking flyers and video's to promote the race.

I'm smiling because the people in charge of the FMSA are doing something i learned years ago.

Delegating out responsibilities to those with the talents to pull off this event.

The charter members and veterans won't be in this game forever and by allowing the ones right behind them to run with the ball is no doubt going to assure a bright future for this club filled with a rich erray of family racing community. 

Besides the Moss ladies and John Moss the club is utilizing Robbie Smith , Robby Hoffmann , Chase Cabre , Connor Borah , Andrew Kurjack , Ryan barthlomew and Austin Craddock regular participants of the FMSA to put the word out that this club needs to stay around for a while while "The Young Guns" of Austin Rice and danny Sams and other young lions interested in being a part of this fast growing motorsports venue.

​It makes me smile. Thank You


One of the best personalities in the FMSA current points leader Robby Hoffmann is one of the "new Guard" that will keep this series strong for years to come by having fun but staying serious about his racing by always doing his homework.

The Smith family of Ocala , Florida is one of the hardest working crews at the track as above mom Jeanne knocks some dirt off to keep the car always looking nice and below Dad Rob is the main wrench on this potent Stallard chassis to keep son Robbie a points champ threat for 2014.


New mom "Kat" Thomas returned to the FMSA Saturday night. Here dad Danny makes sure it's a full go before heat race action.




 A man with True racer blood

We mention thanks to Atlantic Powder coating's owner harold matthews after each week we win but this man's love for racing is far reaching as he will be one of the advertiser's for the upcoming "Ironman challenge" race at marion county Speedway.

That's harold though and the list of drivers and owners as well as race tracks he's helped as far back as his motorcycle racing days is endless and he treats everyone the same.

He expects you to perform the best you can at what ever you decide to do in life and he is not afraid to offer advice on how to get er' done and he has the right to because his powder coating business and his own race team continues to expand yearly and his success at business and racing has proven he can get any job done and done right.

So when we thank him for support on our racing team please remember that we are only a small member of this club of race teams , race tracks and racing series that garner support from Atlantic powder Coating of Jacksonville , florida.
