Myers and Robbins win at Bowman Gray
Horsepower on display at the legendary quarter mile.

(Bowman Gray Stadium, Winston-Salem, NC) “I’ve been saying for a long time that if I could get some horsepower, it would sure help my cause,” said Burt Myers of Walnut Cove after taking checkered on Saturday at Bowman Gray Stadium.
            Myers won the first 25-lapper for the Farm Bureau Insurance Modified Series. It was the third week in a row that Myers visited Victory Lane with his new Ford motor. “It’s one of those deals where you’ve got to have everything else working too. I knew we had a good car, I just needed it to run down the straightaway,” said Myers.
            Last week, Myers and rival Tim Brown of Cana, Va. tied in their qualifying times. But on Saturday, Myers barely edged out Brown, taking the pole with a time that was only seven one-hundredths of a second faster than Brown’s.
            In a reversal of last week’s lineup, Myers started on the pole with Brown on the outside front row – and many fans were wondering if Myers, who felt he was shoved into the wall last week by Brown, would return the favor.
            Some may say Myers chose not to retaliate, some may say that Brown avoided anything that Myers attempted to do – but the end result was the two entering turn one without a collision. Myers claimed the lead and Brown filed in behind him in second.
            Myers went on to lead every lap to take the checkered, tying him for all-time wins with his father, racing legend Gary Myers. Randy Butner of Pfafftown finished third with Lee Jeffreys of Wallburg finishing in fourth.
The “Madhouse Scramble” sent Brad Robbins of Winston-Salem to the pole for the start of the second race, with Junior Miller of Danbury starting on the outside front row. When the green flag dropped, Robbins beat Miller into turn one to claim the lead. Robbins took a few hard taps from Miller but was able to stay in the lead and take the win.
            “It’s a good victory to start beside Junior,” said Robbins about racing with the Stadium legend. “I think that’s the highlight of the whole thing: to be able to start beside Junior and race him hard.”
            Jonathan Brown of Winston-Salem was able to slip by Miller in the final laps of the race, finishing second. Junior Miller took third.
            In the Webb Heating & A/C Co. Sportsman Series, Tommy Neal of Walkertown took the checkered in the first 20-lap race. Shaun Cockerham of East Bend and Mitch Gales of Thomasville finished in second and third.
            In one of the wildest races in recent memory at the Stadium, Luke Fleming of Mount Airy brought home the victory in the second Sportsman race. Fleming took the lead from Robbie Brewer of Winston-Salem in a wild pass where both cars collided – Brewer was sent into the guard rail and Fleming happened to ricochet right back into the groove to keep on racing.
            Then, Fleming held off challenges from Derek Stoltz of Walkertown and Kyle Edwards of King, both of which nearly turned Fleming’s car sideways. Fleming and Edwards ended up taking the checkered flag side by side, with Fleming beating Edwards by a nose. Edwards finished second, and Stoltz finished third.
            The results of the Sportsman races, however, are unofficial pending technical inspection.
            Tim Vaden of Kernersville won the 20-lapper for the 104.1 WTQR Street Stock Series. Joseph “Bobo” Brown of Winston-Salem took second, with Jerry Helms of Winston-Salem following behind in third.
            In the Time Warner Cable Stadium Stock Series, A.J. Sanders of Mocksville took checkered in the first race. Nick Collens of King celebrated the win in the second Stadium Stock race – however, a post-race scoring recheck awarded the win to A.J. Quakenbush of Winston-Salem.
