Brown and Myers Battle, Split Wins at Bowman Gray
Close competition leads to some heated tempers and dented racecars.

(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) Saturday at Bowman Gray Stadium was yet one more night when Burt Myers and Tim Brown went head to head – and one more night where on-track incidents, incredible horsepower, and plain old good luck put each of them in Winner’s Circle.
            Burt Myers of Walnut Cove and Tim Brown of Cana, VA both turned the exact same qualifying lap – 13.302 seconds around the historic quarter mile – placing them in the rare situation of tying for the fastest lap. By virtue of having more points, Brown won the tie-breaker and started on the pole with Myers on the outside-pole.
            All eyes were on the two front runners during the first lap: claiming the lead in that crucial start would be a major step toward victory. And with the two cars even enough to tie for the pole, the matchup on the first lap would inevitably be just as tight.
            The two flew into turn one – and ended up colliding as they fought for the top spot. Burt Myers was driven into the fence as Tim Brown coasted into the lead. In one stomach-turning lap, Myers’ team watched him go from the front row to the very rear.
            “I never expected that out of Tim. People are going see it different ways. When we got to turn one, he just crowded me,” said Burt Myers.
            In Victory Lane, an emotional Tim Brown was shaken by boos from upset fans. “I’m just telling you that that right there was racing,” said Brown.
            Randy Butner of Pfafftown finished behind Brown in second, with Michael Clifton of Walkertown finishing third. Myers fought his way forward after going to the rear but ended up getting into another incident as he gave it all he had to move through the field. Myers ended up finishing 14th.
            But it wasn’t just the booing fans that upset Brown in Victory Lane: When Brown drew his “Madhouse Scramble” number to determine his start for the second race, Brown drew 14. Brown would start 14th, and Myers would start on the pole.
            Myers’ crew had their work cut out for them as they readied the car for the second race, repairing the damage that was done when the #1 car of Myers was shoved into the fence by Brown.
            Myers grabbed the lead as the green flag dropped for the second race, leading the whole way and taking the checkered. “I heard Tim several weeks ago say that the racing gods were looking out for him. I don’t know what he’s talking about, but I got one God - and I know mine’s a little stronger than any god he’s praying to,” said Myers.
            Brent Elliott of Denton and Junior Miller of Danbury finished in second and third.
            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, Scott Hall of Walkertown slipped by Gary Ledbetter of Lexington to take the lead and the win. Ledbetter crossed the finish line in second but was penalized after failing to submit to post-race weigh-ins in a timely manner. Ledbetter was dropped back to the rear, moving Steven Berrier of Germanton up to a second place finish and Kenny Bost of Kernersville up to third.
            In the second Sportsman race, Derek Stoltz of Walkertown jumped a restart late in the race, taking the lead but being black-flagged for the illegal move. Instead, the win went to Luke Fleming of Mount Airy – the first win ever for Fleming. Barry Edwards of Pinnacle took second, and Ronnie Clifton of Walkertown claimed third place.
            Reggie Doub of Germanton pushed hard to stay in the lead despite some tough challenges from David Sumner of Trinity in the 20-lap race for the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series. Doub claimed the victory with Sumner finishing in second. Saturday was Doub’s first time ever in Victory Lane. Jerry Helms of Winston-Salem took third.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, Wayne Hill of Kernersville claimed checkered in the first 15-lap race, with A.J. Quakenbush of Winston-Salem winning the second race. Both Hill and Quakenbush were first-time winners at the Stadium.
